Dan, because i rely on price action more heavily than the macd im still working on those.
Im likeing the standard and 12, 200,15 for bias.

could be a real nice setup coming with the dragon lines as resistance

:D

Hi Doji,

I can't find where your 2 lines do come from on this trade (131.716 and 131.850)... :?:

Hi Doji,

Haven't been on in a while, but I'm curious about this new indicator you have. I would like to have some clarity as to how you use it.

This is my current understanding.
1. The Hop indicates a macd cross of 0.00.
2. Hop indicator appears and...
3. :This is where it gets complex: A) do you wait for pull back to a zline, and trade into the direction of the hop or B) Do you enter at the extreme High/Low of the hop candle?

I'm looking at all your charts, and you seem to deploy various methods of entry. I'm confused.

A question about stacking: are you stacking based upon pip profits, or are you stacking based upon broken s/r. The entries on your charts are so tightly stacked that I can't seem to determine why are you buying or selling at those prices.

Some clarity would be appreciated. Thanks.

** One thing i've noticed. The hopper fails at just below or above Supply/Demand. However when it is clear that Supply/Demand has been absorbed by the Hop, it seems to work well in trading in its direction.

No response required. I get it. It took some mulling over, but it all clicked.

The single horizontal line is all you need. Its indicates where your first trade will be. It allows you to stack (potentially) and it shows you where it will all end (a significant s/d area)

The Macd shows bias. An expectation to see a series of down or up MOMO's so you can add trades to your stack. I choose not to use it, as price action is all you need.

The Hop attempts to show you if a horizontal line is broken. Be careful around significant s/d areas. However, an S/D 'area' is where price action breaks or doesn't break a horizontal line.

I understand why there is no need to use higher tf's. 5min tf is all you need.

** Every close of a candle is a line of significance....

thanks...
