Unless Tams can discuss the settings of the indicators being used, there's not much good in looking at screenshots or txt files. You need the settings or it's useless.

Bill Schamp pretty much completely revealed the settings of his indicators and his methodology in the 'early days'. Mind you from memory its is essentially based on price action using an ergodic to categorise significant HH's and LL's.

Good man.

I hated that caterwauling going on because it distracted from what you were trying to explain. Plus the other members of the thread were learning, sharing and helping one another which was wonderful to see. Hell, even someone as dense as me might learn something...lol.

If I might make a request, buddy, friend, pal, fellow flyfisherman...lol... would you through in a stock chart every now and again, please? Perhaps something that most people could relate to like the QQQQ's would be suitable and help us relate to the action of stocks vs futures. Thanks again, bud, for everything.

 

Tight lines,

 

Tim

Just so the thread gets off to a good start, those who push commercial interests are discouraged. Those who make no sense and have no creds are, for the most part, ignored, and they die from lack of food. But those who are straight-shooters and answer questions clearly and sincerely are welcome and are even encouraged.

 

In any case, the atmosphere that pervades that "other" site won't be found here. :)

 

If I may, though, I suggest that you start at the beginning and not ask members to endure threads elsewhere that have an unbearable noise to signal ratio. You may be able to cover the gist of what you do and what you look at in only a few posts.

TAMS already got started there with the posting of the rules and now I will post a few chart giving the detail of the entry and exits. Today in the ES was a perfect example because it was such a crappy day. No one could every accuse me of cherry picking a day like today.

 

The first 3 charts are of the 2401 CVBS Bar Chart (Constant Volume/Share bar Chart) for today. I had to split them into 3 parts because I am traveling and did want to hook up my second monitor. The 4th chart is a longer term 823543 chart. It is a great example on why I prefer to trade longer term charts versis the faster intraday charts. Less noise and the slower charts. The slow chart here as well clearly shows the mass consolidation playing out currently on this bottom.

Pretty much, sorry.

Tick charts are better than Minute charts but the difference is crucial.

Minute charts are the worst.

 

When I get home in a few days I will post a few chart that compare Minute Tick and CVS Bars so you can see the difference. Constant Volume/Share Bar charts are like High Definition viewing of price movement, direction & strength.

Here's today's ES 2401...

 

I have added the ZigZag indicator to the chart;

it helps you to visualize the oscillations.

 

 

 

you can get the ZigZag indicator here:

http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/f56/free-easylanguage-indicators-5418.html

 

p.s. This indicator is very sensitive. If you get an error message, you will have to reduce the strength a bit.

 

p.s. The indicator was written in MultiCharts.

If you are using TradeStation, please send me a PM. I will get one work out for you.

PF? - Price Failure? I guess when you have been posting this stuff for years it is easy to forget that not everyone will be up to speed with terminology. It would be helpful with a new thread at a new venue to treat people as complete nubs and give a brief explanation of terms and concepts as they crop up. Mind you even with a well defined terms mis-understandings still crop up, thats a whole other story :).

I have to agree. The rules mean nothing unless someone is willing to explain the terminology, and no one can be expected to read thousands of posts elsewhere in order to decipher it all (and any references to the "elsewhere" will be deleted).

 

To start, what do the highlighted terms mean?

 

The Intraday Trade Rules!

 

Perfect Trade – Summary (Intraday Trade)

 

(In Trading Decision Chart)

1. Prime Trading PPF trade through to Prime Trading Breach.

2. Verify Histogram is in Prime but not yet oscillating.

 

(In Strength Chart)

3. Confirm Histogram is in Same Direction on Strength Chart, next slowest

chart. (This is for see the overall strength)

 

(In Entry Chart)

4. ERG Oscillation in Prime.

5. Look for PF Bar or Bars

6. Look for Confirmed Price Failure Bar.

7. Enter at the open of the Execution Bar (this is the bar immediately following the Confirmation Bar).

 

(Exit Position)

8. Exit Position Condition.

a. Any ERG or Histogram Oscillation in Prime, and PPF exit immediately.

b. Any ERG or Histogram Oscillation not in Prime, and PPF exit immediately.

c. Any ERG or Histogram Oscillation in Prime, and a Breach, Breach or Match PPF, you may exit on PF Bar sequence or Adjust Stop to Previous like Oscillation until Stopped Out, a Divergent/Convergent oscillation is created or a failed oscillation is created.

 

And so on.

TAMS posted the rules and I forgot to post the PF images.

Simply ask and you will receive.

Thanks. As DB points out to attract the widest audience it might be good to cut and paste the definitions so they are early in the thread. Just trying to be helpful rather than a thorn in your side :)

Just to clarify - is the new rule on TL that any link to elitetrader will be deleted?

 

I've posted plenty of links to ET on TL and they were never deleted. Now I see DB is policing this policy and I was not aware that it is against the rules to post a link to another trading forum.

 

So if someone could clarify the rules on posting links to other trading forums, that'd be great to clear up any confusion.

 

Thanks.

I suggest this be addressed with James and the other moderators.

Hey BF019

Nice to see you here.

I might have a solution . . . simply 'cut and paste' the post.

    • Actions for the 23rd.  Hugely frustrating day, picked my spots but my timing was off.  I don't seem able to find a trade that will survive long enough for me to manage and test my patience, that in itself is testing me right now.
    • Actions for the 22nd.  I seem to be on a bad run, I'm really struggling with the opening minutes of the trades I'm taking and then get sucked into a little over trading.

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd January 2019.



      FX News Today 10-year Treasury yields are down from overnight highs, but still up 0.7 bp at 2.746%, and 10-year JGB yields climbed 0.8 bp to -0.004%. Stock markets remained cautious during the Asian session. The Bank of Japan held policy steady, as expected, while further reducing its outlook for inflation. The resulting weakness in the Yen didn’t help stock markets and Topix and Nikkei dropped -0.60% and -0.14% respectively. The Hang Seng is also down -0.04%, despite mainland China markets initially moving higher as China’s central bank pumped liquidity into the banking system once again. Still, the measures are also a sign that officials are nervous about the slowdown in the economy and CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp are down -0.24% and -0.13%. The bank offered around 258 bln Yuan (USD 38 bln) to banks through its medium term lending tool. Markets continue to question the progress in the US-Sino trade talks, even though White House adviser Lawrence Kudlow said that the trade talks are still on and the story about cancelled preparatory meetings was “not true, there was never any meeting. We are moving toward negotiations.” The negotiations next week will be “very, very important” and “determinative”. Meanwhile, there are the first signs of a possible way out of the US government shutdown. Markets remain easily spooked, but appear to have already priced in a lot of risk last year and US stock futures are moving higher after yesterday’s sell off. Oil prices are trading at USD 53.27 per barrel. Charts of the Day

      Main Macro Events Today Canadian Retail Sales – After Wholesale Sales plummeted yesterday, Canadian Retail Sales are expected to have also declined by 0.4% m/m, with core Retail Sales (ex autos) expected to have declined by 0.6%. World Economic Forum at Davos –The second day of the WEF annual meetings held in Davos and attended by officials from over 90 countries. Comments from central bankers and other influential officials can create significant market volatility. Richmond Manufacturing Index – Expectations – The index is expected to have remained at a sub-zero level, standing at -2 after the -8 in the December release. Support and Resistance Levels

    • USDJPY Eyes The 109.88 Resistance Zone And Beyond USDJPY eyes the 109.88 resistance zone beyond as it looks to resume its upside pressure. On the upside, resistance comes in at 110.00 level. A turn above here will turn attention to the 110.50 level. Further out, we expect a possible move towards the 111.00 level if the earlier resistance is invalidated out. The next resistance resides at the 111.50. Its daily RSI is bullish and pointing higher suggesting further strength. On the downside, support comes in at the 109.50 level where a break will target the 109.00 level. Below that level will turn focus to the 108.50 level and then lower the 108.00 level. On the whole, USDJPY faces further upside pressure on corrective recovery.
