also we will be off till next wed -will check tuesday evening to see if anyone gave any trade ideas -have a great holiday weekend

Hi,
Nice technique. Have you tried this with ES? Do you utilize different size tick charts in different markets? How did you come up with a 155 tick chart for CL? Thanks.

that 155 is a typo -----133 is the tick -if you look at the upper right hand corner -it will show 133 as the tick-
sorry for any confusion -i tried to go back and change it -but there is a time limit here to do so

133=133=133 is the tick

tested the --TF--
1 min chart
longterm ma's 565/1400 (10xabove post)
daily ma's used 30/150
you will see long term ma's running sideways (pure death to new traders)
1-low after the open
2-base line s/r after open-also lines up with 1400 flatlining ma
3-short entry with a strike to the 565 ma (steelballs hold if top not taken out )
4-nice short setup -3 line break -held 565-broke the trend and broke the 30
5-pure ambush (refer to #3or4above)
6-baseline reversal zone

maybe a short live video demonstrating drawing the lines would help? or a step by step powerpoint file?

Don't get it - why is Creekboy being so coy?

cory View Post
so, trend line start point = ma cross, end point = mid point between 2 MAs at the new high or new low since crossing point.
is this better? is this automate trend lines?
