I'd be WELL wary of this so late in the day?

Doji, how do you draw empty boxes on your charts?

Under line studies, right click, select customize, then add the rectangle tool.
Once you draw the rectangle, you can select solid fill or outline under its options.

Actualy i couldn t find the "solid fill" option, but i figure it out.

"draw object as backround" has to be turned off and
"chart on foreground" turned on. :)

thanks.

Nice trading Raw. I see your stacking also.
Never add to a loser, and when positive and havent reached the tp yet, stack away. It can get you crazy R:R

Some observations of raw's chart:

Don't hear and see, hear and feel =)

Can you see the difference between the momo that you trade and the momo that you take profit or ignore?

Studies used:
3 bar combination of growing/shrinking bodies.
Double Hooks as triangles (cone or pennant)

also notice the fast moves as momo and understand why dragon lines are where they are.
