Over the last month, I have been getting email updates from Maarten, and his system looks, on its face, decent enough. However, based on my Viper AT experience, for now sticking to manual entries and exits. Like the idea of blaming myself for losers and winners.
I sent Maarten an email with the link to this thread and asked him if he would join in and comment. Time will tell if he does.
It seems like Maarten has learned from the viper team how to deal with emails. Unless you are a prospective subscriber you will be ignored.
When I was thinking of becoming a viper subscriber I emailed a question and it was answered promptly and thoroughly, then when I was a subscriber I sent 5 emails. They only replied to one, it had one compliment and 3 questions, Charles' reply was "thanks, glad you like it."
In one webinar a question was asked if they were going to hire someone for customer service, Gary said that he thought they were doing just fine, that gave me a chuckle. Most companies I'm paying on a monthly basis give me excellent customer service and want to keep me as a customer, except Charter Cable.
I posted that chart in response to a 4 range chart someone had posted showing Vipers entries / exits, with which I did not agree. You see, we really don't need no stinkin' Viper! TF. 1/13/10. 6 MedianRenko ticks. Panel # 1 = ADXVMA_Alerts_V05 (I think this is a modification (not mine) of ADXVMA_Alerts_Rjay (Rjay's original. Thank you, Rjay! !) - works the same - set to 5 period. Panel # 2 = MACDZeroLagColors_V2 (my modification w/ background colors) set to 12,40,40 Panel #3 = SMIMultiColorWizMod (my modification of Cory's SMIMultiColor w/ background colors) set to 40,1,1,20,40 Panel # 4 = LeaderOfMACD_V2 (my modification of LeaderOfMACD w/ vertical line capability on price panel. Thin Blue = possible long, Thick Blue = Go long, Thin Red = possible short, Thick Red, go short, yellow - warning of potential price direction change, set to 12,26,9)
After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

I had another thought about why the slippage is so great with Viper's ATs. The strategies are huge and take a very long time to load on a chart, especially if you are using Market If Touched (MIT). The code probably looks like spaghetti and when an entry triggers, it takes forever to execute.
