I little bit more on the HZ and LZ estimated ranges.

Once the actual low is in place (L1620.25)
then add the estimated range to it for the
HOD. I call this my "range rule".

That is, the the HZ is no longer in effect.
When you have extra new information of the
actual low vs an estimated low.

L1620.25 10=1630.25
Actual 1630.50

Could you please have a look in your trace file if there are any clues and send ne the relevant stuff via PM? Theoretically this indicator should not be able to crash NT under any circumstances as I thought that I wrapped everything that potentially could cause a crash in error handling blocks. But then people say theoretically there is no difference between theory and practice, practically there is...

Hi Vvhg,

Yes I could. However, I have been having some tough slogging personally.

First I messed up with whitespace and then today I got a long call from montreal I thought was important, closed a trade that would have been $260 for $23 to find out it was only the florist who has problems writing down my visa number. I needed that trade.

I think it it more a question of my very limited laptop than your ulilt.

I really don't think you should waste your time on it unless someone else reports it later.
Both you and mike have been generous with your time and I need to regroup focus and get rest.

For the time being I've remove the util.
I must focus on my trading.

I think you should ignore my post above (it was just frustration talking - it takes forever to reboot an reload everything I use) as I think it's more the universe telling me to get focus than anything else.

Good trading to you and thanks for all your time you spent programming it.
(as a sidenote I think I often get routed to bigmike cdn -- not sure if that is relevant.

..........
peace, love and joy to you

Here's a recap.

The top may be in with confirmation on weekly close < 1593
The SAR on the ETH works well for trend
The downmove since 22 May peak temporarily exceeded previous downmoves.

Wednesdays with Wyckoff: When to Close a Position | Afraid to Trade.com Blog

Jun 19, 2013: 9:24 AM CST

With all the literature out there, it’s easy to find trade set-ups and entry strategies, but the real money is often made with proper exit logic/strategies.

What did classical thinker Richard Wyckoff say about closing a trading position?

In his book Studies in Tape Reading, Wyckoff identifies four specific reasons to close a trade:

“A Tape Reader must close a trade…

When the tape tells him to close
When his stop-loss is caught
When his position is not clear
When he has a large or satisfactory profit.”

cont..
“The first and most important reason for closing a trade is that the Tape/Price says so.”

“Within the ribbon of sales recorded in the tape, there runs a fine silken thread of the trend. It is clearly distinguishable to one sufficiently versed in the art of Tape Reading.”

“When one is short [a stock] and this thread suddenly indicates that the market has turned upward, it is folly to remain short.”

“One must have the flexibility of whale bone and entertain no rigid [bullish or bearish] opinion. He must obey the tape implicitly.”

In other words, watch price action (strength, weakness, divergences, impulses) and be on guard for any sudden/unexpected developments while you’re in the trade that directly contradict the reason you entered a trade.

The same goes for #3 when “the position becomes unclear” or price did not behave as expected once you put on the trade. Perhaps you expected a sudden upward impulse but instead, price stagnated – Wyckoff would suggest an exit.

..........
peace, love and joy to you
