yes, 20 for a 15 min chart will show number 5 sema from the hourly on a 15 min chart. If you use the 5 min for entries set it to 60 on the dyn fib indi.

Or do you mean you've set dyn fibs to 20?

Any sema hi/low on H1 will also be a sema high/low on the M15 it's in the nature of it, or are you talking about see sema low on H1, see it fix, see (in this case) M15 sema High on M15 then drop to 5 and take a rat when it returns to the area?

The lines, starting with the Dragon line on the H1 with the sema fixing? The sema 3 on the H1? Significant also? Or are you only looking at the sema 1 onwards. There's lots of info on those charts that can mean one thing or another.

yes, on a 5 min chart set it to 60 and it will show the start of the #5 semas from the hourly chart on the 5 min chart.

Tro_dnamic fibs_sr.

Thats it....
Tro_dynamic_fibs_sr indi shows when a HOURLY sema 5 or higher would be on a 15 min chart.

You have to select "iperiods=60" right?

Yeah thats the problem with trading into NFP... Its happened to me a few times before... now I make sure I am out of all my trades (or scaled out a lot) before any and all big news releases....

You can export that calendar to google calendar on your android or outlook...Note the 3/3 events and trade them with caution... it helps to know a little bit about economics also just so that you would know if you are farting into the wind or not...

But yeah, its a marathon, not a 100m sprint
