Hi Aquarian,

Could you tell me what indicator used to show the high and low area?

Which is the configuration to enter a trade?.

Thanks in advance.


I make my estimates in a spreadsheet each morning before opening.
Then I use ZonesFromExcel to enter these which show up as bands (the green zones and red lines).
--let me know if you want the indicator and I'll zip it for you.-- I think it is from here but I'm not sure


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

Hi Aquarian,

Which is the configuration to enter a trade?.

Thanks in advance.

How you use the zones would depend upon your trading strategy and I have a list of rules. As an example:

If it starts in the middle zone or below and the low zone is too close for a short trade then:
you would enter the trade long when it is in the low zone (aggressive)
or
you would enter the trade long after has bottomed there and starts to rise. (more conservative).

The thing is the estimates are only estimates and some days they are less likely to be accurate than other days.

-----------------
I'm not clear if this is what you want as "configuration to enter a trade" so let me know.

I hope it helps

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

Hi,

Hi I made a mistake on the name
it is called Zones_plus_txt.zip

Here are the instructions the user provided
"Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.6

1. Extract ZIP file.
2. Import NinjaScript.
3. Drop levels.txt file on your hard drive and change line 29 accordingly, otherwise indicator will not work.

Txt file format:
[level][space][width in ticks][space][1 or 2]
where :
1 - 1st color (default red)
2 - 2nd color (default green)

Idea taken from RanchoDinero.
"

(If you're not clear what he means about the file location edit in line 29 let me know)

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

New lithium ion batteries
Breaking in New Li-On battery? | NotebookReview

do not have memory setting as old batteries - which needed a full charge - full discharge cycle (or 3 cyvles) to break in.

dont't do extremes go 95% to 5%

each 6 months go to 5% to reset chip

"Most damage to the Lithium-ion chemistry occurs at the extremes of the charge range (ie when fully charging and fully discharging). The former is mitigated by the charge rate being automatically reduced as the battery charge approaches 100%. In my experience,most computers stop charging once the battery reaches 100% and, if the computer is left plugged into the mains, don't start charging the battery again until the charge level has dropped by several percent.

One should also avoid fully draining the battery more than necessary although this may be required every 6 months or so to enable the battery's chip to recalibrate the battery capacity."

peace, love and joy to you

The one state that has gone complete anti-democratic is Oklahoma. It is wise not to travel in that state at all. Oklahoma should be on a no fly zone. Now Oklahoma police can outright just seize everything you have from debit cards to bank accounts on a traffic stop without any criminal charges being filed – just some policeman “thinks” and your life is over. With no money, you cannot hire a lawyer so they can now just rob everything you have on a whim.



The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has introduced a device that also allows them to seize money in your bank account or on prepaid cards, which they call ERAD, or Electronic Recovery and Access to Data machine. State police began using 16 of theses last month and this is a state now where the police have become literally the highway robbers. This makes the traffic cops in Russia pulling you over for speeding and you just pay them and they go away as a far more civilized arrangement. Here, they can rob you of everything.Let’s say a state trooper “suspects” or just “thinks” you may have money tied to some type of crime – any crime. He can now scan any cards you have and seize the money in your wallet. He does not have to charge you with any crime. He just “thinks” you might be connected to anything he can imagine. There is no right to remain silent, for he is not charging you. He is after all your money because they are broke.
