this is definitely a good read...granted I havn't stop to hang on every word of every post
these seem to be some of the most recent posts with consolidated relevant information...
then in #5018 Kalenzo stepped back in (page 502) and (#5026 on 503)with a new tool and another upgrade and not much seems to have been discussed about those in subsequent posts???
from what I gather the strength of this system is it's clear entry. So could that not be automated successfully? I don't believe a system has to be FULLY automated but I'm happy to have a machine do any part of the work it can do and then call me when my supervision is required. How much discretion does this system require for executing a clear entry?
Don't get me wrong I understand that discretion is always required in trading. But parts of the trade can be given to mechanical means accepting the outcome may not be what I would get doing it myself. It's about being accountable for choosing my own balance in terms of level of interaction with the system which is part of getting a system that works for me. I don't plan on abandoning all discretion to a mechanical execution. I want to know what 'could' be turned over with minimal impact overall. Hence my questions about the strengths and weaknesses of this system.
I am oriented such that I like to work 'on' systems more than 'in' systems. That's just how I'm mentally wired. I'm looking for ways to improve efficiencies and to do that I have to start with something mechanical and break apart how it's working. See where it's working well and where it is breaking down. That's how I analyze and like to apply my creativity. So while I understand and accept that this is a system that requires discretion. The first thing I want to do is get an accurate model of the latest version of it like an floorplan of a house and lay it out and see it move and do it's thing for myself. Then I can start looking for ways to make my own revisions and tailor it to suit myself.
of course I'm happy to post my results of that process too for everyone's benefit.
I just don't want to start on last month's model I want to work on the most recent versions. make sense?
pardon me while I make my own little tally of what's where in all this...I can't stand not knowing where to find things.

#4966 on 497 - stepMA stoch KV1 Ex 02, aNina, and 2 versions of EA for Catfx50 one with a longer neverbefore seen name??? V2mook
#5018 on 502 - stepMA stoch KV1 Ex 03 and K lines
I opened the .doc on this and read as follows....
RECAP of CatFX50:
Plot Hist_Step_MA_Stoch_KV1_Ex_02 set at 2000 bars.
Set filters on Step: +0,04 and -0,04.
Plot Inverseind with EMA50 (optional).
Plot EMA50 on chart.
TF: 30 minutes.
Trade time: 08:00cet to 18:00cet
I opened the custom indicator window to the input tab and nowhere do i see an option to set it to 2000 bars. nor do i see anywhere to set filters on step.
What i see is:
PeriodWATR value 10
Kwatr value 1
HighLow value 0
the common tab has fixed maximum and fixed minimums is that where I set the 2000 bars? what about the filters?
hey hey .. no reason to fight. Nina has done a great thing by sharing this system and i also think Harold has helped a lot of people by showing his personal style of trading this and answering questions.
Everybody should stay polite including myself. Even for "egoistic" reasons. We should not fight and lose good people here, no matter who.
I agree with eric. Will someone answer my most recent questions?
Sorry i don't have the indicators on this computer. If nobody else answers i can answer in some hours..
Here you are, indicator and screen with settings. I personally set number of bars to 3000.
thankyou thankyou krall, that gives me the # of bars to count....
what's up with that? were do i set filters?
@Aragorn: see attached picture
Stay focused mates, pips rule ok!
