The OV on bar.0 may appear to you to be a limiting constant. But we know that it has magnitude. What if it is SM? What if it is MO? What if it is of other type of magnitude? There is an OV on bar.1 too. Since you are using VO on bar.1 for comparison with VO on bar.0 on a DIRECT relationship as volume stand-in, why ignore OV on bar.1? Edit/Delete • Quote • Complain

Sorry guys, I noticed too late that there are more posts I didn't read yet. I'm catching up. Here the two of you are discussing "overlap". For my "vocabulary list" I need to add "Ov"and "Vo". I think they stand for "Overlap" and "Volatility". Is that correct? Overlap can have following values: None, small, half, most and all. Also true? As I have never seen an "overlap table" I'm currently having difficulties to wrap my head around "overlap". What for and how can I use "overlap"? There is a PACE table putting volume into different PACE categories which then relate to volatility. Did somebody see such a table also for overlap? Edit/Delete • Quote • Complain
 vinc   Registered: May 2007 Posts: 246 08-09-12 08:34 PM funny word : 'SIMPLICITY' good Lord only knows what it means let alone SIMPLICITY in TA so, yes! I'd say simplicity is important! why not.. at least what's 'simple' should be easily tested.. or you mean simplicity but the one that can't be tested?? then it's not really SIMPLICITY .. COMPLEXITY comes to mind , but I don't know... by the way guys, how do you test support / resistance strategy ?? Edit/Delete • Quote • Complain
 frenchfry   Registered: Jan 2002 Posts: 447 08-09-12 08:47 PM The less I know... the more I read. The more I read... the less I know. Found a table. But do I understand it? I don't know how the number in the overlap were calculated but do I interpret what I see correctly: The more overlap = less ticks to be gained? Is that "all"? screen shot 2012-08-09 at 9.12.25 pm.png This has been downloaded 66 time(s). Edit/Delete • Quote • Complain
 deucy28   Registered: Feb 2011 Posts: 417 08-14-12 10:11 PM I'm shopping this inquiry around. The name of this thread caught my attention because no one pair trades as simply as me (reasonably successfully). It's too bad except for last two posts there has only been a two month dry period for posts here. Without using any software or metrics and just eye balling........... does a 10 year chart for a long term pairs trader willing to stay in the trade for many weeks to a few months have any usefulness at all. In other words, momentarily, disregard more significant short term modalities in the decision making of putting on a trade here. The operative phrase here: "any use at all" for the prospect of shorting HOT and going long HST. qtn to t.a..... hot hst a.jpg This has been downloaded 245 time(s). Edit/Delete • Quote • Complain
