noel:
Hi,

You say use a 10M chart, the nearest time frame on Metatrader is 5m and 15m, what settings do you suggest using with these time frames?

Regards,

Noel.

Try this:

TF M15,

EMA = 5,

EMA = 10,

ATR = 15,

RSI = 21,

trigger 0,0012

I calculated this like that:

If you use 10 minute chart window ema from 3 period then at 1 minute it should be 0.3333 but when you multiply it by 15 (to use on 15 minute chart) then you got 4.999 so you can use 5 period. And the rest of the parameters is calculated in the same way.

Martingale systems

In martingale systems (Goblin and others), often the first trade start in the wrong direction, or trade it too early, and after that the martingale system goes in the same wrong direction.

Is it possible to choose the first trade manually and then take Money Management to trade in the direction I choose ?

Standard deviation channel

Guys

Any of you have modified the MT4´s Standard deviation channel to show several levels in 1 channel. in the next pic you´ll see several channels (0.25, 0.5, 0.75, and 1.0). What i´m loking for is 1 indicator with all this lines.

Basing Trendlines off of MA's

Quick question -

Does anyone out there use chart patterns, trendlines, etc., but base them off of MA's? It's just a simple thought in my head to smoothe things out and perhaps make the patterns easier to see. Obviously you wouldn't use a 50 SMA, but perhaps a Hull MA period 3?

Just wondering if anyone has done this to any success or what everyones opinions are. TIA. Matt

Moving Average General Questions

Moving Average General Questions

1. Please explain the conversion of moving averages

200 ma on a day chart= what on a 5min 30min 1hr 4hr

100ma on a day chart = what on a 5min 30min 1hr 4hr

50 ma on a day chart= what on a 5min 30min 1hr 4hr

34 ma on a day chart= what on a 5min 30min 1hr 4hr

Reading about 100ma, 200ma as common support and not saying time frame

Would one assume day chart as default. I read many time people talking

About moving averages and they never talk about what time frame they are in

Are day charts the common reference?

3. what is the common type on a day chart in any market when it is not referenced

Exponential, simple, weighted ?

Are different type best used at different time frames ?

Would Exponential for day chart and simple for 1hr and 30min correct?

Hi,

I've noticed that sometimes before large moves there is an increase in the frequency of price changes (tics). However, I'm not sure whether this is a consistent event.

If it's not too involved, it may be worth writing an indicator to backtest this idea. If it works, it could be a handy alert for those rapid large moves which we may then be able to pick up on M1 TF.

Something, perhaps, with external inputs -

Bars back

No. of price changes (alert level)

TimeFrame

Alarm on/off

(No prizes for guessing that I can't program)
