"Question PT... seeing as MT4 is only capable of (i donno) a weeks worth of M1 data, what is the time frame for copy and paste into another chart, so that you get a continuous flow of data?"

Those went back to the 12/13th, I'll play with it and see how far back I can go :)

See that huge gap of missing data?!!!

It went from 6/10 to 9/8

See if your export of M1 data from USDCAD is missing the data too?

It had no problem going back to 9/8, but with the missing months of data it "over flowed" error, which makes sense.

It would be cool if you could post the same chart range as you can see in the above USDCAD PnF's from MO and I but from your indi, just to compare them all side by side.

From 9/12 to present.

some small diferences, I am not using any margin so exact price hits are needed from my feed. (GoMarkets)

MT4 often has data gaps, afaik ut happens on every data feed.... and the inbuilt data downloader (which is more complete) overrides your brokers data AND stops several months ago.... however MT4 will take as much data as you can give it: there a prefernce setting that defaults to 50000 bars per chart (ie 50000 minutes of data).

That is freakishly close to the original though...

Perhaps send PT your GoMarkets csv history for M1 to plug into his Excel Chart

PT the sweetspots ARE the price levels, but the box surrounds it.

Jal, I was thinkling about angles on the MT charts and I came up with this initial thought:

1 box down and one bar across = 45* ( 1/1/root2 triangle)
other angles are
30* = 1box and root3 bars
60* = 1 bar and root3 boxes
(I hope I have those the right way round)

so you see that (since PF is done in squares) simple trig yields the angles REGARDLESS of MT4's scaling issues....

Dude YES!

That is what I had seen also... but on Excel... Do you think we could apply some simple trig into an indi of sorts maybe?

Create kind of like a heatmap or hotspot for s&r....?
