Re: Predicted trends - are they useful?

Hi all, Here's an example from today illustrating what I was writing about in my last post here. The chart is ES 4min, scale 0.25 x 2/bar. All the trend lines are "Gann" lines, just abstracted from the fan for clarity. These lines can create channels or single instance trend lines, which if broken a...

Re: Predicted trends - are they useful?

Hi gezza, Charts have to be correctly scaled to reveal anything actionable/relevant regarding price/time structure. That's why your channels don't really show anything useful. If you don't have a scaled chart, you have to do cumbersome calculations with a spreadsheet. Using a scaled chart is much qu...

question for the board

Is anyone else having problems with the W59 trading off the chart tool? Buy, sell lines sticking on charts and not erasing after fills? Stuff like that. That's what happens to me. Does anyone else use this tool?

Re: Trading Off Charts Problem

Right -- it "feels" like an API issue. Things as they are are not insurmountable, but that of course adds to the pointing and clicking burden of daily trading.

Best of luck with this!

Trading Off Charts Problem

Hi Earik, My Trading Off Chart feature, which I dearly love, is acting up. Orders will go through IB to both enter and close a position when using the standard horizontal red or blue line to set the level for the trigger. But after a fill, the red line remains on the chart and does not go away even ...

Re: it ain't over 'til the market sings...

Hi Joe, The Tymoczko is an excellent book, but it's really heavy on compositional theory and maybe something to read later I would suggest: Physics and Music: The Science of Musical Sound by Harvey E. White and Donald H. White -- good intro to basic materials Tone by Siegmund Levarie Beyond Measure ...

Re: it ain't over 'til the market sings...

Hi Joe, Well, everything vibrates. Last night my wife and I were tapping on our wine glasses along with another glass -- we got the up a M6 down a M3 tune that was the old "NBC" motive (dating myself here) to within a few cents in just intonation. Three pitches, two intervals. What is really fascina...
