Wizard's Holy Grail trades & screenshots

I'll post daily screenshots here for anyone who is interested.

Here are a couple of screen shots (yesterday & today) showing the trades I took using my Holy Grail system of indicators. Thanks to Sharky, Rjay, BigMike, Keith & Todd. I just adjusted settings / made some color changes to achieve what I thought would be a good trading system. To download the Holy Grail set of indicators & chart template or to follow the progress & view other members' comments - see the Holy Grail thread in the General Discussion section. Happy Trading!

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

Thursday, July 30, 2009 Holy Grail Screenshot

Nice day. Started out a little choppy, but had a very good day, overall. Made a mis-step early on & had to recover from it, but followed the indicators & came out ok! It may not be the Holy Grail, but it's as close as I've been able to come. I think I'll stay with this one.

Great job, Wizard!

How do I enable the up or down arrows shown in your chart? I imported it yesterday from your template。 Thanks!

Sorry, I should have mentioned I drew those arrows manually to show where to go long / go short. They were drawn at the end of the day, just before I uploaded the chart to the forum. You can turn arrows on (Show Arrows = TRUE) in any of the DoubleMAPaint indicators or the SMI2 indicator if you wish, but they seem to draw so many arrows it's confusing, so I turned them all off.

That's true. Too many arrows. I wish the ones you drew were from the indicator itself For now, I will keep them off as well.

Hello everyone.

Here's a screenshot for today. Typical Friday. Lots of lack of direction. Finally got a nice move to the downside in the afternoon.

(ZEN FIRE data feed users - Multiply by a factor of 4.94 to make your chart look like mine: 233 Tick (mine) * 4.94 = 1151 Tick (Zen-Fire))

I believe the indicator that they are using is called SMI2 which paints the bars when set to True.
