Will the software work with tick charts or any other chart? Thanks Mike

Captvict

Optimized for Range charts, but I'm sure you can use on any chart type.
Just find instruments that have movement...

Thx CaptVicT

Funny you say that... I've expressed doing a session at some point showing my point of view and using RTL, but never got a response.
I am looking to open an educational / chat room for a small amount of traders at some point.
There's lots of FREE platforms to choose from, so the price is right!!!

Are you no longer trading the RLT method?

It seems that you have improved your risk/reward with your current strategy

Sazon

working in Price Action to my RLT method.
Yes, I've improved my R:R to 1:1.

Scalping for 5 and risking 10 was a killer on 2 or more losses.

Didn't know drawing trend lines / channels could be so good!!!

Keeping things simple is key and having some Price Action background doesn't hurt either
