creekboy,

Could you please explain what is happening at 1, 2, and 4, on your posted chart screenshot; and how you'll make an Entry decision, based on the setup criteria and your method. Eh, where is 3 ? Also, are those three horizontal lines to be taken as S/Rs, or just the middle one ?

Have you gotten any suggestion on the MAs for 5 Range chart ?

Creekboy Setup on CL for Sunday night/Monday

Creekboy, what do you think of my attached CL chart in preparation for the next trading session?
I used the fibs for the ma's as TMFT suggested.

It's quite fascinating.

Please continue.

1- is 5 min trend line base on the 565/1400 ma movement -

2-first break of intermediate 30/150 ma, after the high

4-the zone where the price broke with the 30/150 below the 5 min trendline all at the same time -look at it like the edge of a giant sinkhole


3- was the removal of the 565/1400 ma's for just being able to see the chart more clearly

lolu -i see many errors on your setup -but with out providing me the ma's your charting with it will take me too long to dial in the ma's you are using--it only takes less than 2 min to set up any chart or check if the ma's you are testing are listed -thanks for posting

plethora - you 2 lowest trendinles -remove the lowest 1 and use the next higher up than -take that at the same starting point you have and split the last high zone pocket -the breakdown in the middel of that uppward move had no conviction in my eyes -

creekboy,

The MAs settings for the 5 Minute chart are as you suggested; FastMA ---> 27, SlowMA ---> 70
