its 1/2 the distance of the 2 ma's being used and directly above or below the most recent high or low --

its in constant adjustment

and gives many different entrys for many different time tables -


you will see over time how you can sense and uptrend or down trend just by watching the high low movement of the s/r line you choose to use -


oh -1 more thing - i usually just guess the center point as the markets moving and adjust to the final area when i feel its base or top is in

@creekboy,

Do you have to draw the Fib (using the in-built chart Fib tool) to derive the S/R ... and why do you choose to derive the S/R at that specific point ... why not a little bit earlier ? Does that specific point have a specific characteristic that made you to draw the Fib there ?

It is here, then he posted an update version here.

Have a look @ this live video recording of my test-drive on a 5 Minute chart setup (a SIM trade, and a quick 7 ticks TP), taken just now, using @Cory's indicator.

Is my S/R ok ?

@creekboy,

Ooooooooh ... I never noted that you are not an Elite Member of futures.io (formerly BMT).

You're not on my Ignore list ... I don't really have anybody on my Ignore List. You've got to be a futures.io (formerly BMT) Elite member to access some stuff such as indicators, indicator links, videos, video links, etc. You don't have to PAY; you just need to DONATE to futures.io (formerly BMT) ... and you'll have access to, not just indicators, but some excellent stuff. So, just do it ... DONATE to futures.io (formerly BMT) today.

Meanwhile, have a look the screenshot of my 5 Minute chart contained in that video ... you'll notice that I closed the trade too early.

You're talking ES; how do all these apply to Euro (6E), which is what I trade. Could you do the numerical analysis for Euro today too ?
