its only obvious to you, that's why I said even if you disclose MA setting it will change nothing nobody will know what do to with them anyway.

the sad fact was -that if he would have taken his scalper profit he would have been fine - time will tell - please dont compare yourself with a 15 yearold with 2 weeks experiance

hope this helps -also you will see where the lack of taking profits will lead to a loss while looking for homeruns

now look at this chart -you see the short scalps and the long scalps -also you see just pivot reversals -but dont do this by hitting the reversal button or the game will take and extra 2 ticks from you and you will fail -

however you see if you keep playing focused on the reversal pivots in chop -the runner will set and you can score a few point move

maybe 21.75 will hit
