Still don't understand the purpose of this thread.

Are you planning to tell us a little about your set up or did I miss anything?

OK


are you trading on price levels or on the basis of an indi? Are you trading on a specific time frame?

BTW I like your charts.

BTW I like your charts.

Its a chart pattern. It works on every timeframe where the bar produces a definable open, high, low, close.
So normally 5 minute charts upwards.

I usually trade intraday on 30 minutes, less trades and less hassle.
I enter on the open of the bar after the signal and trail the high/low of the previous bar.

No indicators, just the bars.

PS: I only take trades, between 0800 and 2200 (european hours)

Thanks for posting your trades. After many years of trading I also came to conclusion that the best indicator is the price and the best setups are the simple price patterns. Any other indicator is simply history. I am trading a variation of the "Clear Method" with success and was glad to see someone finally wrote about it in a recent TASC issue. A couple of questions:

Is it possible for you to describe your pattern and the setup so that we can program it for NT7?
Are you using Trade Navigator for your charting? If so, can you make your Template and associated indicators available?

Keep up the good work!
