  1. I thought today was the first day of the new profit target and stoploss.

    What sort of twilight zone am I living in?

    well i did my papertrades on this. i think it came out the first two trades were tgt reached, then i got stopped out twice but i didnt reverse it. then i got another point and another stop out. As far as comparing it to others, i basically use the timer that was provided, and am synchronized with the atomic clock thingee, and everytime i hear the ding i look at the stochastics and either click bid or offer to establish posn. so we'll see how this thing does over time, but yeah today seemed like a bitch./ damn/

    Just to make sure - you realize that your procedure will not match what I'm posting nor what many of the other will have since we are not entering the positions in the same way. I'm not using the clock - I'm just using the bars.

    Not to say that the way you are doing it is wrong - just wanted to make sure you realize it is different.

    oh yeah definitely, i know this has been discussed before, and my opinion is that its not the fib numbers but rather the tight target and slightly loose stop and the ods of hitting the tgt first. So yeah i know the results wont be comparable to you guys. I guess this is an experiment on its own. We'llsee how it works this way.

    In my neverending quest to exactly replicate Quah, I dumped
    Qcharts and went with esignal+ensign. Attached is
    a screenshot. Quah, you will be my biggest hero ever if
    you would be willing to look at it and offer help with:

    1. The times. No idea why it seems to keep synching me
    with it possible to just always have EST
    times across the bottom?

    2. Times, again. In looking at e+e in comparison to both
    Qcharts and an atomic clock in the office, e+e is exactly
    1 minute ahead. That is, right now the time shown in the
    pink heading, 1min chart, is 10:58...atomic clock and Qcharts
    both say it is 10:57. Going back thru past data, it is
    the same way...Qcharts data for minute 9:54 is equal
    to e+e data for 9:55.

    3. Coloring the bars for entry, based on the stoch. I think
    you mentioned this around page 40 or so...but how do
    I set that up on here?

    Sorry to turn you into a helpdesk monitor, but any help
    you could give me to make what I have look like what
    you have would be fantastic.

    zorak - The reason it seems that you are one minute ahead in Ensign is because the times displayed are the closing times of the bars - not the opening like Qcharts shows.

    I've attached the stochastic settings that tell it to use certain bar colors. Should be self-explanatory.
