hey wiz again great work on this. paper trading it has been very successful so far. I have one little glitch that i can't seem to get straightened out tho. I want to use the SMI to pain the bars but I can't seem to get it to work. has anyone else had this problem?

Click the indicator icon (looks like a little chart) up in the toolbar at the top left of the screen & this will open up the indicator panel. Click on the DoubleMA Paint_SharkyPkg (7 ZeroLagEMA / 3 ZeroLag EMA) and change to PAINT BAR = FALSE, then click on the SMI2 indicator and change SHOWPAINT BARS = TRUE), hit APPLY, then CLOSE & your chart will now paint the bars based on the calculations of the SMI2 instead of the DoubleMA Paint indicator

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

hmm.. I thought this was going to be a place where people posted their results using this method. I will post how I have implemented this against the YM. I am still getting things worked out on the order entry part but what I did was use a 10 Range chart instead of ticks. I like the way it lines up so far. I had pretty good results this morning though I am still struggling with the flip flops of bar colors.

I have implemented to the charts very well. banked $650 with wiz's method and my usual signals from TI. the systems seem to compliment really well.

i don't know why that pic doesn't show up in the thread!

edit: added it as attachment. I commented on my trades on my Blog https://stonertrading.blogspot.com/ Tried to do my best to promote big mike's too, cause you guys are great!

ES looks remarkably like TF today (as it often does). Trippy chart, man. Cool colors! When volume is light, I often go to a smaller time frame (115 tick, 77 tick, etc; sub-multiple of 233, or in the case of ZenFire useres 1151; 575; 288, etc. etc.) but you have to be careful. Nice screenshot! Have a good Pittsburgh evening.

ntsst3, how can you tell where there is less vol and when it starts to pick up? Do you look at Time and sales or are there other ways to see this?

Thanks

Telly,

I know you addressed this to ntsst3, but I thought I'd throw in my 2 pence! Here's a link to one of BigMike's indicators that is helpful (page 2) : Downloads - Indicators - Big Mike Trading Forum
and my screenshot from today, with it applied to the chart.

Cool, thankyou. I thought you were refering to the white dots, but you're obv talking about the VolumeGraph.

Just change the subject, the white dots of your chart, can they help as well? I know you look at them for choppy times, but I've notcied you miss alot of the trend or sometimes really get in late cos the dots are telling you its too choppy.

Am I correct in saying that?

Thankyou TheWizard for replying to me

Telly,
I'm not exactly sure how Sharky intended them to be used. I use them to identify 'chop' & will generally move my stop (up / down) to 'just' above the highest high of the bar that's in the chop in a down-trending area or 'just' below the lowest low bar in the chop in an up-trending area, as a safeguard. Usually, I just see them as identifying a rest-stop for price in it's trend upward / downward. They don't seem to signal turning points, just resting periods. I don't pay too much attention to them otherwise. Hope that answer helps. Not feeling too mentally focused today. Cheers!
