TRO_BuyZone_PMSM

Postby TheRumpledOne » Fri Jun 22, 2007 4:05 pm

TRO_BuyZone_PMSM



_TRO_BuyZone_PMSM is the Poor Man's Slot Machine version of the Buy Zone.

Some traders are still having trouble with the Buy Zone, so I wrote _TRO_BuyZone_PMSM to make it even simpler:

If top row dot is GREEN, go long.

If top row dot is RED, go short.

The bottom row dot corresponds to the daily candle color. Be careful when you trade against the daily candle color. Take profits quick.

Just to be 100% crystal clear - use this on a 5 minute chart and DO NOT wait for the candle to close!! When you see a red or green dot, that's the entry trigger.

Start out by taking tiny profits like a nickel or dime until you get the hang of it.

ELD attached.

Hi TRO,

Is it difficult to add in the _TRO_BuyZone_PMSM:
another(s) bottom row dot corresponds to the Hourly candle color ?
Like your esignal TRO_sm_candle_color .
(see http://kreslik.com/forums/viewtopic.php ... sc&start=0
)


Thank you
Vittorio

Difficult? LOL.

You would have to add DATA2 for the 60 minute candle and then reference DATA2 in the code.

Darn Avery, when I saw the first one, I had wondered why you had not incorporated the 60 in there also. Looks like others wondered too.

That chart is a thing of beauty! I only wish my charts looked that nice. I am beginning to waver a bit! I am thinking about opening a trial TS account to make use of those beautifull charts.

The difference would be $3.00 per side versus $8 per side on 1000 shares. However, since I also pay ECN fees, it may not be that bad. Also, I would easily meet the 5000 shares per month minimum, so I would get the free platform. It may just even out.

I just hope the pirates here don't force me to walk the plank if I open an account. If I do sign up, I will tell them you refered me, that should give them a sense of guilt.

Lastly, is it just me, or do some of those 5 minute dots appear yellow? Also, I trade against the daily constantly. I do not understand the signifigance of including the daily? I am just using the 60 and 5 with no problems.

The reason I didn't do it the first time was it would require data 1 and data 2 and not everyone understands how to insert a second symbol.

But, since you asked, I wrote it and just included the workspace in my upload.

The daily is a "bias". So if it is RED, then it's a down day, and I look for short opportunities. If GREEN, up day, and I look for longs. With AAPL and currencies, it's a good rule of thumb.

Of course, I also look to the previous day's middle to determine a bias.

But let's not complicate matters. Using any ONE of those can be profitable if you stick to the rules.

Funny thing is, I have never told anyone not to use TradeStation. I just point out how they treat people on their forums, that's all. If TS ever reactivates my account, I would use it to trade AAPL. But I use EFX for Forex. TS still uses GAIN and fixed spreads and I know better than to trade on a fixed spread platform.

The yellow dots are the trade trigger dots NOT the 5 minute candle color... yellow means "get ready because a trade may appear soon".

Ahh----very interesting! Those yellow dots mean get ready. Geez Avery, I think you have simplified this down enough to where a chimp should be able to trade profitably.

If somone needs more than this, trading may not be right for them.

The BuyZone indicator for radar has been flashing YELLOW for years!...lol

That's how you can pick off stocks all day long.
