I'm naturally drawn to MA and KISS methods... love it
the frequency at which you post is ample and abundant.
keep em coming

I have approximate answers, possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty of different things. But I'm not absolutely sure of anything and there are many things i don't know anything about.

1 of the reasons we can post like we do is that -when you feel you are on the right side of the trade it frees your mind to do other things-thanks for the comments

here is a simple test today close 1357( +- )
I took 35 and 137 for my ma's on a 333 tick chart -anyone that is reading this can match it up on your own charts -

remember we only use a 7 tick risk so all turns may not work and you will miss some trades

so when you get your chart set up -mark all your entry areas and see what your risk is -

todays richmond #s -
july # 491281 -this # is same all month

today was the 17th and the # was as good as any lottery #

16-93-89 we had a low in the 39 range a high 2 ticks short of 61 and where does the 89 fit in -
8+9=17
17+low of 39.75 =56.75 the price @ 4:01est

sometimes things just line up
