  1. To measure the angle of trend lines, supply/demand lines etc?

    A lot of lines in TA just wondering if anyone has ever measure them for use in some kind of system.

    example if the jibberjabber line is at X angle etc etc

    Just curious.
  2. A long time ago I did. Didn't spend more than a few minutes at it I suppose.

    Don't remember much about it. Degree of angle etc.

    Better to just keep it simple.

    that will probably be the day i officially hit rock bottom
  5. I use PA/S&D only.

    I was curious about using it with trend lines. Since it SEEMS the steeper the angle the stronger the trend.

    Example, if you were going to trade the trend (in some fashion) you may want to say the angle of the trend must be greater than X for me to get in with the trend.

    Just an example/idea...shooting shit here.
  6. My Dr doesn't allow trading from his office.
  7. hmm had my suspicions that it wasnt my original idea lol
