the easy and profitable thread guys should be HAPPY

this is a truly MTF indicator

the lightblue dots is the price of last 4 hours TF , where the price were

this way, people could see the ending of 4 hours TF (this candle) and place their bet in the next 4 hours accordingly

Where can i found this template to download ?

FxTrendsTrader:
Mladen was wondering if you could create this schaff trend cylce indicator to be multiple time frame it already gives alerts with pair name but if you could edit it so when it sends email the time frame is listed as well it appreciated the last indicator to modified for me was a large success thank you kindly.schaff_trend_cycle_1_amp_alerts.mq4

timeframe TDI merging

Hey guys, hey Mladen,

as some of you use the TDI as a Signal provider I came across the TDI Alert System, as seen below (I just gives a signal or even EMail Alert when a cross in the TDI is happening). Probably this is nothing new. As it is more safe to trade the TDI with at least two timeframes (60min as basis, 5min for scalping) , I am asking if the following is possible:What I want is merge signals of at least two different timeframes to give me an overall more reliable signal: The larger timeframe is used as a basis, up or down gives the direction for the smaller one(s). If the same signal appears on the smaller timeframe, thats a trade; the trade is exited on the exit signal only depending on the smaller timeframe.

So here is the indicator I am talking about creating signals; what do you guys think or was something similar already posted?
