yes all lines are extended when playing tick charts -

this system is different from what everyone else teaches - we know our RISK -which is a max of 7 ticks or we do not enter the trade -most times 4 to 5 tick risk is available -we do not chase trades we miss unless we get a great pull back-

as for profit -its what ever the system will allow -if you read all the we back to june 4th -there was and over night trade that grabbed 27 points for a max and others that only grab a tick -its all in the move of the market -we trade the risk and the reward takes care of itself -we long stay long till the trendline breaks -

when short stay short till the trendline breaks -

that was yesturdays pattern

A few questions, thinkorswim wont allow a trader to draw trend lines past price action using a tick chart, so you extend lines as needed, correct?

Also do you use a preset profit target when you scalping or do you trade to lines for you support resistance?

Sorry for being so obtuse... but what does that mean? Are you using a 199 and 167 sma? What in the world are richmond numbers? I would like to understand what you're doing here, but so far, it eludes me. Thanks.

@creekboy

your 2 moving averages are not used for entries or exits they are just used to draw trendlines correct? Im trying to catch up with you and how you use your method

thats correct floating trendlines - the entry /exit is on the break -only when the a&d lines up and a max 7 ticks risk
