Even Bonsai confuses me sometimes too :-0 but thats not the point. I think that what Bonsai is looking for is some form of exchange of ideas...even if its somethings as disagreeing with something you had read in trading book or your thoughts on a macd crossover. The bbs have become quite and seems it is mainly part time posters. If Bonsai or Mully do not post on this thread everyone disappears; it take sevral posters at once to create a learning environment imo. BUt all bbs are the same. Two few posters dotted all over the place. PLus most want to trade FX or Dow:)

Nice example of trading in tune with the corrections....selling on the 7 bar would have produced nice trades on Tuesday.

hourly chart...8.5 hrs in a trading day, 5 days in a week, so
42.5 on an hourly chart???? I think :)

Fluke:

Construction of a 1 week moving average will obviously depend on the time frame used.


As an example, a daily chart would use a 5 period SMA to get a 1 week MA (5 days in a week),

A 10 min chart would use 39 periods for a 1 Day SMA (390 minutes in a FTSE100 trading day) and a (5*39)195 periods for 1 week chart.

Hopes this helps.

Remember only use what you feel comfortable with. It is very dangerous to use other peoples indicators if they are at odds with your own trading style.

Hooya you beat me to the answer (school run got in the way!)

Seems like a low volume day perhaps due to May Day holiday... leaving the market makers free to manipulate more than normal???

Also got some self evident sideways movement/congestion which can be identified by the measuring bar (1 hr chart).

U can see that all subsequent bars have either an open or close within that range.

So, we need a close followed by an open above 4,530, or a close followed by an open below 4,505 to change this.

Cant see this hapnin soon so away for jog and a sauna/jacuzzi.

Enjoy

hopefully Bonsai will be kind enough to give us his wave count as a final post :) seems to be in a b/2 with c/3 up to come but not sure where we are in the bigger picture

Hooya,

I would remind you that Bonsai's 'established' system "does not include Elliott" (Bonsai own quotation from some time ago.)

I treat all EW with a great deal of caution. Unless the 'pattern' is screaming out at you (so that a 5 year old could see it) I think it only adds to confusion/uncertainty.


So clear ABC patterns can be useful and very very clear 5 wave patterns can suggest an ending of the move and a tightening of stops. But that is no guarantee.


Otherwise leave it well alone..

Mully.
Sorry to be a pain.
I cannot see how you get 39 periods and 390 minutes in a trading day.I thought a trading day was eight and a half hours
390 mins =six and a half hours.Cant quite understand you

Fluke,
:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Sorry, you are quite correct (i was still in School run mode and still reviewing US markets and I had inadvertantly used US trading hours of 6.5 to answer your question.)

The correct UK hours are of course 8.5 = 510 minutes per day or 2550 minutes per week.

So a 10 minutes chart would use a 255 SMA to get the 'weekly' MA.

Sorry the confusion and just goes to show we are all fallible. Very important when trading markets. :LOL:

I visit this thread on a regular basis but do not contribute to it because my technical expertise does not match the contributors.

The use of highly technical language coupled with much abbreviation makes it dificult for anyone but the enlightened to fully understand.

I am gradually coming to grips with the jargon but it is a long slow job.

The suggestion that the elite should take themselves off to somewhere where us plebs cannot read their posts seems somewhat churlish, what difference does it make to them other than denying their technically challenged brethren the chance to read their posts and improve themselves.

Regards

bracke
