Good question. I do not know but my guess is to google for that indicator to see what comes up.

Or, you could go to front of futures.io (formerly BMT) forum and post a 'question' by clicking the button and going through all that, or find a currencies thread and try that.

Good luck.

Looks like what they called harmonic patterns you have a few like, Gartley Butterfly and many more, way too complicated it is from my point of view.

I prefer using simpler pattern type of ABC's. Anyway useless if you don't know how to count waves but that it's another story as you also need the right time frames, I can say 1 thing though you can't really apply these on tick charts.

Good Luck

Yes, I looked at them and they seemed quite complicated, but interesting.

+1.4 points today

Mixed emotions over my trading today. I am doing my best to focus on the longer term charts, but I was mixed on which direction it would most likely go. I traded the way I have been trading and I think the biggest challenge I had today was continuing to trade, but the other entries were higher risk.

That was a never ending long which was surprising to me, but so it goes...

I tried holding the long a bit longer, but I got knocked out on the re-entry. Normally I would have been out at 1.5 points, but I stuck to my guns. Now, am I upset, well, part of me says, however you get to 3 points doesn't matter. I will continue with longer runs, holding my stops and continue to trade when it is clear.

Great job today!!!! Well done!

You are right. It doesn't matter how you get your goal!!! You can take 10 trades for 3 ticks each, or just one for 3 points. Difference only in commissions.

Keep it up!!!

+.6 points today per contract

Tough day for me but I am not upset at all. The entire time I remained in control.

I read the long term pretty well, but I couldn't seem to get the right entries. No fill's killed me today and the big long bars.

I truly hope these conditions do not last too long as it seems that the volume is light on prices and or orders are getting pulled like mad.

The later trading was a choppy mess. I was long, gift, long, gift, then I decided to wait, then it went. haha...

And, I got knocked out on the tick on a nice 3 point run at the open which was a challenge.

All-n-all, I saw it reasonably well, just my entries and management were pretty poor.

That was a long session for you!

As long as you can stay green you do well!!! For me it's a challenge to think straight after so many trades!

Great job!!!

I took quite a few breaks with breakfast wrapped in-between. I didn't hang out the whole time and sped up market so I had time to trade and waited for it to get to my area and then started looking again. I didn't expect the market to continue up the way it did and it was pretty rangy up top. O well....
