7 time frames

Hey Horst,

I was curious...........how do you keep track of 7 different time frames? (or tick frames if there is such a thing)

Do you find yourself leaning toward just a few of them? Say maybe 3?

Thanks, Jeff

No Jeff, they are all like my little children. I love them all the same. They all have different characteristics, but I love each and every one just the same as the next. Alone they are not as strong as they are together. In unison they are an army that is tough to beat. They play like a symphony, and if they play a tune I like, I waltz to their music.

It just takes a while to get it, but once you do, it is like Horst said (at least when I am "on") like a beautiful dance and it is amazing how you can see every pivot and every turn.

Horst,

+ You talk about "close to the rail" -- you mean the BB being close to the bollinger band line, correct?
+ You say "separation" -- do you mean the BB being far away from the bollinger band line, or the BBs themselves being far apart from each other?

By the way, what did you use to add the extra buttons to your chart toolbar? Very slick!

Thanks for the great videos, it's fun and educational to watch, particularly your patience and calmness when your boundary gets hit.

Close to the rail = close to the bollinger band line
Separation = far away from the bollinger band line
The Toolbar and Tabs are a product of my school to make homework easier.

Thanks for nice comments on the videos. They are really helping me focus on my trading. They help keep my emotions tuned....... Hey, the last thing I want on video is me running out of my office screaming when a trade goes against me.

I use 8 screens, but only 7 are dedicated to trading..

Hi Horst,
Many thanks for posting up your trades... love the macdbb's, so it's great to see your videos.

8 monitors is a serious setup! ...Just wondering if you're looking at other (i.e., different) information/indicators/etc on the other 6 (of the 7) screens, or if they are the same as you show in all of your videos, just with the different instruments you're watching??

Thanks again for your effort.

Hi DCFX, thanks for the nice words and all the support.

Out of the 8, only 7 are for charts. 3 are used for monitoring other products, and the other 4 are different time frames of what you see on my trading screen. The other charts are identical to the 144, which is the tick and macdbb on my trading screen (no small macdbb's like the 6), there are no other indicators other than what you see on my videos.
