looking good...
did you change the start of new trend lines from MA crossovers to a trend line MA cross?

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.

program - i have two different charts i run - on the swing charts with much higher ma's i start at the ma crosses-
for day trading i use the trend/ma cross -it helps findind a-b-c-d pivots better -
below is a chart that shows both on a day chart -entry is still the same -
