sept 2012 very slow tick action -chart setup

low was prior to the cross over -

blue dotted line trend

fibs are stacked after duplicating -to check for movement patterns -notice how the 3rd stack is at the high and the 1315 area is showing up to be the pivot -

same chart -different dial in - note i tried to find the ma that started with the the low of today -also note the purple and green are % of the old numbers -then i check for movement with the fibs -notice how the second stack missed the 50% mark by 1 tick -

will give this a test run for a day or 2 to check it out

on the last chart above -it could be dial in just a little tighter -- so the 2nd fib stack 50% line is dead at the top -its hard to tell but its 1 tick form there -

so to do that i would have to take micro % adjustments off both the green and purple lines --

with tos charts i lose all data after 5 trading days as thats all the further back i can go -

i hope this is clear on how i go about this -

even if you give out MA numbers, say 30, 150, 250, 660 you could change all of them on the very next chart thus there is no harm in letting people know what you use each time.
