Those charts are beeeeyouteefuuuulllll....

Not sure how you trade them but they are the prettiest charts I've ever seen.....so post modern and contemporary.

The color gradient is actually functional. It is in-sync with the Color Coded Price line.

Trading is quite simple (like me... ) I trade with the trend and look for trend reversals and or price pullbacks. If I get all 3 lines green I want to go long. But I want to get in as soon after the price pivots/reverses as possible. If it was been several bars since the pivot/reversal before I get 3 green lines, I wait until; price pulls back close to the fast EMA , reverses and heads back in the direction of the trend.

Reverse the process for shorts.

ThatManFromTexas, i tried your idea of masking the wicks and tails and just keep a dot for the close i think it facilitates the reading of price action curiously. I can better follow my Squiggly Lines.

These may help. Good luck!

TMFT

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Here are the setups from the crude i am not gonna cover each setup for 2 hrs because today was a strong trend day and setup's were clear... again i can't stress importance of higher time frame and trend trading Set a goal 10,20,30 ticks look for your setup and get done scalping and day trading is not about playing each trade but waiting for the best trade per your method and then risk .. remember the best card counter's in blackjack also wait for table to setup before starting to trade they don't play each and every hand they only do on thing's with high stats same with trading there are 4 setup's which i can see may be you can do more or less does not matter .. pick 1-2 setups and wait for them and get done there is no need to give your money away, if you keep trading simple your life will take a turn and become much more pleasant and beautiful .. again happy trading and best of luck.. if you need any instruments to review or help with setups please ask or share .. Thnks


Best regards
Jinhar
