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
