Hi, I can only see that you are using 1 point to draw the lines, so how are you determining the angle? Thanks.

this chart shows -how this works best -this sytem is not for long term trade unless you go to a different tick / time frame and alter the percentage + or - on the ma's -

i find intraday pivots to be unreliable -and have found these (for myself ) to be better as i have control over them -

I find this a fascinating concept BUT what I'm having trouble with, is WHY would the cross of a MA, be better than using the most recent pivot point instead ? Did screen time prove this method is better than a pivot ?

the angle is created as a new high /low is made -the angle will adjust untill it is violated -

my es chart crossed yesturday at 22.50 area and was just violated at this writing when my upper ban was closed higher than the span of the 2 ma's
