I couldn't figure out why your chart was different from mine. Yours has after hours on. Mine does not... ;-) Do I always want to do this with after hours on all the time?

Here is an updated chart. Is line A correct? What about line B? What do I do when it crosses once and then right back the other way as I pointed out in the screenshot? Maybe different moving averages would fix this? What numbers should I start with?

Line A is not correct. You need to split the highest red candle after the cross over which in this case is the first red candle. Be sure to split the area between the two MA's.

Line B would then cross the little blip that you have tagged with a ?. No matter how small the crossover is, you need to split it. Sometimes you have to blow up the page to see if it really crossed.

Creeker is posting under NYStateofMind which is my Moms name. I am sitting at his computer. and he dictates to me.

Ok, I re-did it with some different MAs. Does this look correct?
