I have found a way to relieve stress, spot entries quickly, using the macd and then with all the other lessons from KR have finally settled into my method. Im just working on lot sizes now. It can be difficult to stack and pull the trigger, but its getting easier! I will post my charts and my buddies charts for a while so you guys can see if its a good fit for you or of any help.

Ok, Got it. Thanks for that.

1 min chart? you are nuts buddy.

I never thought i'd say this but trading is starting to become easy.

Looking forward to more of your charts and tips.

I usually change the middle number to smooth things out.

So on a chart put the settings at 12,26,9 (standard) Its around these crosses that I look for my setups. (zlines, pullback, momo behind me). Now try changing the 26 to a 40,50, or 60. See how it weeds out some of the fakes.

I trade 1 min, 5 min and 15 min. No higher anymore.
Stacking is awesome!

Doji, does your template sometimes not plot the "hop"? Got me stumped..

You are killing it.

Dan,

Sometimes when you get a blip in the broker or platform feed it messes the indi up. So I refresh it. If your referring to not seeing them on my screens, sometimes I have them shut off and others, if you look I have the ninja settings set to one thing and my macd window beneath set to another group of settings for bias, those crosses dont show up on my screen.

I think this is what you were asking?

Advantages of stacking
I am finding that I love this method of MM!

example:

Entered at 1.3560 with 1 lot & and a 10 pip SL = Risking $100.00
Price moves in my favor, breaks a s/r level of some type.
add another 3 lots at 1.3572
add another 3 lots at 1.3577

Close trade at 1.3583
23 pips with 1 lot
11 pips with 3 lots
6 pips with 3 lots

Risk 10 pips/$100
Profit 40 pips/$740

I never let price reverse beyond my 2nd to last stack. Just close trade if price starts to reverse and bank the cash!

I never add to a losing trade

hi doji,
Thanks for explaining your stacking MM.Could you please tell what is your stoploss after you do your first addition of 3 lots.If it is at pervious entry which is 12 points away then how can the risks is only10 pips.The risk is 12x3, that is 36pip for 3 lot and and for 1 lot it is at breakeven.Risk can be 10 pips only if you move stop to 69 which is just below psychological level of 70.
Please tell where i am getting it wrong.
Thanks
