creekboy,

Now, let me test-drive the Tick chart style, but on a higher frame. So, what MAs would be good for a 700 tick chart instead of your 133 Tick chart ?

This is a new request. I just want to venture into higher chart frame (if feasible). I'm still on Euro (6E).

lolu - cl on a 512 tick chart with the 27/70 ma's for crossovers ( 3 setups)

1- long reversal -

2- nice short setup

3- long reversal -looks like high risk as the green base line is nearly 2 full points up from bottom -

4- prime short setup
