Cool, DC :smt003

Service not available, can't see the last screenshot now.

Took some screenshots during the day but without comment so they're relatively useless. Also been trying some different periodicities. Attached 5 tick renko without tails. What do you use if I may ask ?

General trade idea: http://screencast.com/t/j7IOq15rS

This is a EURUSD screenshot.

EDIT: update http://screencast.com/t/jwxLgT5K

EDIT 2: update: http://screencast.com/t/28SfWs9jYnYT
Decided to test lower and the trick is to not get gung-ho about an idea but to visualize upfront what the options might be using these low volume areas.

Slightly different from 1-2-3 trade idea on Dow: http://screencast.com/t/2fVJubroarG

Only trade back into value at the arrows in this example.

EDIT: follow up http://screencast.com/t/ujYxGckI :wink:

EDIT 2: http://screencast.com/t/ziGoZQio :o (not)
Reached the opposite side.

EDIT 3: bigger picture: http://screencast.com/t/ee7kgtNAnoS

EDIT 4: went all the way back again towards VAL of the smaller consolidation
http://screencast.com/t/xX8752VLL4C
Now at unfair lows relative to the larger consolidation and approaching unfair lows of the smaller consolidation.

EDIT 5: went all the way back up again http://screencast.com/t/hVsXBy01H0y

Very accurate and useful information , PTG ..

I plan to spend some time digesting it .

It is interesting to see that many of your lines/areas , match up with

the fib extensions that I have been using as tgts .

I am using a 10 tick Range chart on the YM .

The MA is a sma 26 , to simulate the macd cross .

Today the market took off @ the open and turned @ the 2nd tgt .

Thank You for your valuable posts , please continue ..

Due to some recurring health issues in my family , I will be off-line

for a few months . ..Take Care .....DC

Thanks DC
Sorry to hear about the health issues - all the best with it !

Will post some more in due course, although not a lot is at all in the next two weeks..

There's tons of free videos on www.l2st.co.uk with more info on the stuff I've posted.

I'll update the previous posts in a minute.

Take care !

EDIT massive thanks for that last screenshot and the settings - very helpful after putting up a chart like that !

And the EURUSD:

Starts early this morning (European time):
http://screencast.com/t/HyZtzpJ6
Notice the little red line, that'd be the entry. Then watch what happens next..

Next: http://screencast.com/t/BO1pfDllK

Next: can you still see the small entry line ?
http://screencast.com/t/yw73j4w23g
That was late afternoon.

End of day:
http://screencast.com/t/NsGvUXJH

Notice fibs oftentimes lining up with low volume nodes.

Well another year has passed ..time just does'nt slow down does it ?

This trading year was especially unusual for me .

I switched to the e-minis exclusively , trading mainly the YM .

Also started trading a small account for a prop firm . I discovered that it

was very hard for me to trade with other peoples money . I entered late ,

exited too early and finally decided that the extra stress just was'nt

worth it . So after 2 months I left and returned to my own account .

Did'nt break any records this year financially , but managed to keep the

bills paid and the grand-kids spoiled ..he he .

The markets continue to remain sluggish and "spikey" (due to govt.

meddling ) . But there is still a lot of opportunity if you remain patient .

Best wishes to all in the New Year ..........Chappy
