    i'm curious, does anyone here use different settings for their indicators on different chart time periods? for example, you have a 1 min chart and use stoch. at a 15, 3 setting and use the 3 min chart with different setting for the stoch? or just keep the same setting for the indicator(s) the same on both charts?
  2. best to use the same for each time frame, to train your eye to see the same thing
  3. maxpi


    Same settings across the board. I might do some optimizations to see if this is optimal but it seems to be.
  4. If you are varying setting from duration to duration, then you do not have a good method for different market paces.

    yu are probably using an edge as well. Edges don't transfer well if at all .

    Today, since the advent of the computer (PC and financial software) no designer default settings work any more. Most books and their illustrations are out of date on this as well.
