MetaTrader question:

"Chart shift -this option shifts the latest bar from the right screen border to the chart shift mark - a gray triangle in the upper part of a chart window. The chart shift mark can be moved horizontally with the mouse within 10 to 50 percent of the window size."

If I use the chart shift, than I give up 10% or more of prime screen real estate!

Does anyone know of a way to automatically shift to bar 0 where it is closer to the edge of the screen?

On larger screens, 10% +, is a lot of wasted space...

I use the chart shift for some of the multi time frame "multimeters", but those are only necessary on one chart, if I have 3 different time frames, than 2 of those charts don't need to use the chart shift to keep price out of the multimeter space.

I want the chart shift functionality on the other time frames just set at like 0 or 1% instead of the 10% limitation...

First trade:

AJ H4, based on big momo candle on the top, entry near the stacked areas on the left.

Entry isn't based on smaller timeframes, it's just H4. target is d1 bo area.

Doji do you draw the boxes with a fixed rule in mind?

Yes, there point of orgin is where I see momentum starting. I call them RB's.
After they form about 75 percent of the time price will retrace back into what most traders know as "Mighty Zone" if you have studied other threads. I believe it takes a RB to close across a previous RB to be important. Otherwise it gives me comfort to hold strong and go with my bias.

I have renamed them RB's due to I am working on a web project and wanted to give them a final name for the project. But, that being said, how I draw them is discussed at length earlier in this thread and they are referred to dojiboxes.

Can I ask about the semafor...

Just say a bullish 3 appears on your 4hr chart and you are still in a trade or you have a good entry on a 15min (short) is it still ok to trade against that 3 because as you know they can repaint for 50 pips before price reverses.. And then only exit or go long in the same direction as the 4hr 3 only when you have short rb's being overtaken by long rb's? preferably a 1hr.

I only ask because using semfor in the past didn't work out for me because of the repainting.

Somebody call lukx, this thread might bring him back from retirement.
