Jeff,

I went into the code and changed the time... Based on what I understand from the times, I changed them to what they would be for EST using military time. When I went back to my chart and started to scroll, my chart turned white with a big red X.

Is anyone using this indicator in NT7? Or is there another one?
Was I right to use the military time?

See screenshot

Even before I messed with the times in the code, I had put it on the chart and I only saw black background. I would think that I would have seen some green and some black (maybe shifted) if it was working correctly.

Thanks,
Todd

Todd,

Have this basic THREE SET UPS template in NT7. I set it up on NT7b17. As you will note, my flavor of the THREE SET UPS has a few indicators I tweaked to suite my taste; so I can't post the template to guide against it causing your NT7 to be unstable. You can have your own build from this one.

NQ @ NY Closing


This is too sweet and awesome. I just watched it because I'm done on trading today and I don't trade NQ. I may have a change of heart on NQ

The move just happened from 7:45pm GMT+1 to 8:15pm GMT+1.

Thanks for posting the chart template, Lolu.

Please see the screenshot below showing the chart along with the indicator selection screen open.

When you look at this template on your end, do you have a "trading time" indicator in there? The chart background is green on your chart and there is no trading time indicator.

I'm wondering if there is a tradingtime indicator that you have that is working in NT7 that I don't have.

If you have a trading time indicator that is working for you in NT7, can you please post it here so I can import it?

Thanks,

Todd

Have a look at my screenshot.

Your screenshot indicates that you don't have the TradingTime indicator. The cs file is here. You don't have the jtEconNews too.

Jeff,

Can you reiterate what times you trade and what times you don't trade? I know that you avoid news times but I'm trying to figure out what to put in the tradingtimes indicator to match what you do (for comparison)

I live in EST.

Here is a screenshot of the tradingtimes indicator that Lolu sent me. I'm trying to figure out what to put on the 2 lines to make the chart match your chart.

Hi jeff

You know I am your Big fan. Your All Your Need thread was the first thread I read .. more than twice and it's the longest thread I've ever read up to this moment .. smile .. I'm stunned when I tripped over your Three Set Ups thread last night when I placed "reversal bar" on the Search box. Certainly it's a very very nice surprise. Thank You and Congratulations for another Amazing thread!

After going through your thread twice, I am still lost on the Outside Bar set up. Appreciate your enlightening me please.

For example, you have 2 Outside bar trades today.

1. First one was a Sell. Was the top wick on the green bar a hint to sell and placed a Sell Limit order when it's 1 tick below its Low?

2. Second one was a Buy. I'm not sure how to interpret the short green bar before the blue Outside bar that would tell me to buy and not sell?!

3. I am also not certain where to place the entry price. My guess is 1 tick above or below the High or Low of the bar before the Outside bar once I know if it's going to be a Buy or Sell but NOT both.

I have a better knowledge on the Inside bar set-up. Appreciate your confirmation that you always place breakout trades on both sides, ie Sell and Buy limit orders at the same time.

Thank You .. Thank You for sharing your set-ups with us. My warmest apologies for the above questions.

Beth
