    I have not been trading for a few weeks. Bob was in and out of the hospital. But today there were some really great Chimp setups. Too bad I had to take care of paperwork:D

    On the chart below...
    I picked a really perfect set up to illustrate this.

    A is the 13 min EMA cross.

    B is the 1 min EMA cross after the cross on the greater trend. You would enter the short here.
    B on the stochs is the confirmation of the down trend.

    C shows the triggers for the exit...one cross confirms the other.

  8. When I wrote that "Chimp Charts" code I did so without any real understanding of the technique. I was just wondering if it was close to what Cathy was doing?
    If I recall correctly, that code had no positive expectancy on most etf's and equities.
    If you want the Chimp Charts EL, I suggest you ask someone who knows the technique to help you with the coding.

    I realized it was not a finished strategy and was hoping some "expert" might be able to modify it so that it works better.
    I just really appreciated you sending that to me to try.
