Hey doji, what is the combined candle indicator(s) are you using for this "dragon" style template??

I think you are doing a great job with the thread BTW

I'm considering just using the 2SMA in candle form:
//---Dragon-Ashi OPEN---
//Buffer3 sets the retracement
haOpen = ((ExtMapBuffer3[pos+1]*0.0)+(ExtMapBuffer4[pos+1]*10.0))/10;

//---Dragon-Ashi CLOSE--
haClose= ((High[pos+1]+Low[pos+1]+Low[pos]+High[pos]))/4;

I've also been using PebbleTrader's PT_ZigZagWithValues indicator (think Point & Figure)

Hey MO,

Very interesting. Just to understand, this is the 2 sma on a given time frame in candle format. That triggers a few new ideas for me to think about.
About the zigzag on pnf, are you thinking the 123 pattern on that chart type?

Yes, it is the 2 SMA in candle format.

In P&F, there is a minimum retracement that is a reversal, usually 20-30 pips, with new highs signaling a continuation...
that is how I am using PT's indicator.

The 2SMA is good for both 1-2-3's and Close over/under.

MinimumForReversal is set to 5:

5x1 Point & Figure works differently than x2's etc in that, if there is just a single box retracement, the trend continues upwards in the same column leaving X's stacked on a single O.

I think that ZigZag pairs well with Point & Figure in that you might have the minimum for reversal but ZZ determines that the move is of little consequence.

You plot by marking off the number of 5's in each swing...it is very relaxing =)

AUS/USD really gave me a hard time last week so thought i'd try a jpy pair.
I notice that zline's are respected more? Got out shortly after this trade.
