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...

Thats it raw, by never stacking on a losing trade, and stacking like heck when your right, magnifies your r:r tremendously. How much exactly? Who cares! Its different with every trade. Once good trade can wipe out 5 bad ones easily.

The macd, is to help people struggling with price action on whcih mbars count and which dont. Bias isnt difficult. Then combining with dragon lines and it doesnt get any better.

Thanks Doji,

Its been an interesting day. I need to practice this more, but I can see how you have to the potential to make alot of pips in a relatively short period of time.

May I ask you what Moving Averages you use on your charts, and how you use them.

And, I've gotten into a habit of stacking as soon as p.a breaches a zline. I don't wait for the candle to close. Do you wait for closes?

Thanks again.
