Hi Beth,

Great thread. I suggest you try the DMPlus_V3a instead of the V3 which you use. The V3a plots back ground colours which I find helps to see if the DI is long or short.

A quick recap as follows:

Morning: 2 trades (1 Long and 1 Short - both winners) 14 ticks
Afternoon: 1 trade (Long - baby winner) 3 ticks

Total 17 ticks before commission.

Note: The afternoon trade met all entry rules EXCEPT taking the "CHOP" warning lightly! Glad that I closed them with 2 and 1 ticks respectively. Actually, "SOH when CHOP warning is on" is now one of the trading rules. I may miss some great trades yet it's better to respect the CHOP warning until I'm more experienced.

It's a Great sim day .. haha ..

there are 6 filters already any more filter sounds like overkill, I vote for getting rid of MACDBB since you don't use it.

Thanks Cory. I second your suggestion and just said "bye bye" to MACDBB.

Next indicator to be removed: DMplus_v3(5) the new comer (3 colored lines). I need it as a temporary safety blanket until my eyes/head are trained to acknowledge the Top Text label (incl End of Trend I remember).

Thanks Alan for your encouragement and suggestion. I will locate the V3a version and experiment with it this weekend.

CHOP is when the ADX is BELOW BOTH DM+ line. Now when you have a good setup and all the your indicators are in line, but your get a CHOP signal, i.e. ADX below the DM+ lines, look at the ADX line (Yellow), and if it is turning UP you can take the trade, even if it is still below the DM+ lines.

I had a Sell Stop waiting which was filled when I was preparing the earlier posts. It's a profitable trade and 6 more ticks to the daily total, ie 23 ticks.

Note: For real life, I don't think I will trade after 3:15 pm.

My trillion thanks again Perry!

I am doing my very best to get comfy with the set up and signals. Today is my Lucky day.

Almost forgot to address my emotion: No stress .. No sweat .. No numbed fingers .. 100% normal. Hmm, not sure if it's because they're all sim trades! Time will tell .. smile ..

Trade Signals: A of course. I will only take A-grade trades LOL!

Will market replay 6E shortly.

Mission accomplished .. Guess how many trades (green and red) I did?



I am knocking at Perry's door for some guidance. Upon his positive response esp the trading time, I will continue doing more Market Replay practice. 6E could be a middle candidate between CL and ES for me. You can tell from the trade log that they averaged around 2-3 minutes.

Luck is with me today .. best wishes from Big Mike, David R and You!!

Top VPOC 1128.50
Bottom VPOC 1118.00

Have a Successful day.
