Speaking of MO, a few days ago you wrote to someone that you were going to see if you could find a particular chart from MO (maybe from 2009?) that turned the light on for you.

Did you ever get a chance to find that pic?

Thanks, dude, you are definitely helping!!

Kewl!!!

Yes, there is GOBS of info scattered all over the place here. I first came here in 2010 after an "internship" (read got my ass handed to me!!) over at forex factory. Then I just quit for a couple of years and when I came back I've been trying to figure out the final outcome of what the last couple of years have produced.

It's hard to piece together, that's for sure.

I'm just glad that some of the old gang is still around.

Thanks for searching for it!!!!!

Now, do you have MO's archives in correct order? :lol:

Here is the zline pic from the usd/cad trades. You asked about the level I used to determine that line.

The bottom line is the long zline, correct?

You didn't draw it on the m5 tf, correct? I think you drew it on h1 or m30.

What I was wanting to see was what caused you to draw it where you did.

Your discussion with onontsira about the number of candles needed before you can draw the zline makes me realize I don't really know the "rules" for drawing one.

Do you have a definition for drawing zlines?

Isn't it interesting how one person can see "gold" in an illustration and another see nothing at all...

or

The same person see the same illustration a year later and than see "gold"

I do look forward to the day when Zlines are no longer being discussed :)

They are just the point at which all held profits have been erased.

It's a concept that in my mind should take no longer than 1 day to see and understand.

Why do you think that I now only teach line charts and horizontal lines to newbies =)

If they can't trade a line chart then it is just a waste of time to show them anything else.

PT,

Just a question, do you trade? Most of your post are based on ideas, concepts, stats.
