We have had over 120 people from this site thank us for sharing this system with then -so for those who have found improvement in there trading -do what we do every so often -
when we are grocery shopping we randomly pay for someones groceries -we always catch someone that is just about complete and tell the check out person we are paying the bill -the reaction is worth the little bit it cost -let alone the smiles in the end

i was have a conversation the other week -and explaining that i had never seen a 4 x cross - and the person said when you do you better go all in -lol
time will tell if it has any more bearing that a 3x cross -

but if you had it charted -you still could have tried a short -or wait up all night for the signals to meet and enter the trade

hi

meancreekie had me chart out the last 4 days on a 5 minute chart to show me how long a trade can last because I am getting bored and impatient with them. I plotted the times and how much profit each took off the 5 minute chart. Please note that the orange markers on chart 3 were the only trades taken. Others were there for my understanding. creeker says if Im getting fidgety in this week then maybe some others are too. Still wondering if I could have stayed in some of these trades for an hour and made only a few ticks! pppfffft! I sometimes think he keeps me around just for the dictating and typing.

made some minor adjustments for today - es 5 min chart - 12/42 ma cross- still range bound as the nearly equal upper and lower trendline count confirms -would like to see some nice up and down movement today instead of the hours of sideways chop

i guess i should clarify this better - if we get another choppy day i am watching the 12/42 to try and stay out of the chop while playing the 6/21 -its just to see if f16 can try and ride the trades longer by having a slightly longer timeline
