Yea I understand that the last line is all the settings. For instance the first number is the time frame, the second number is box length, 3rd number box range, 4th number box buffer, etc. All the numbers are the same when I try to get duplicate results to see how I can make it better but for some people they re able to change it to 13 vs the standard 45. Just wondering what the are doing different... Maybe it would help us all..

ForexVegan - I am too actually. That last line is all code for Xux99 to help with debugging peoples problems when they are not showing the three panels, in other words, all their settings. It has no effect on what the indi is doing. It is just giving Xux info. Description bu FXH in post 5371
Thank you Altos for your positive reply.

Nothing special to this. Just took the order based upon the Indicator and let it run.

Interesting settings. I wasn't able to get those, but I also noticed that you are not using the most up to date Indicator. So between that and the different brokers should explain it. Those numbers do look good though.

Why would you even think about putting a chart up and then ask for our opinion? What do you think our opinion is going to be? The real question is will you trade it? If so why and if not why not. Its your opinion that counts not ours. If you want help to learn how to trade SSBO you have to let us know what you're thinking and why.

I wasn't asking for anything, just wanted to share what I found in case anyone was interested. Most of the charts posted here have been 15m charts. And yes I will be trading the next set up with these settings.

Edit: I am sorry for offending you and polluting this thread, and wasting your time with my useless chart. I was excited about this system, and the powerful indicator. Thank you ForexHard and others for the countless hours you have put into this so that others may learn.

For the record, I have spent the last week reading this thread and using hand drawn boxes the get familiar with trading this system and am very excited about it's potential.

I am a new member to this thread and to forex factory, however I am not new to trading. I can recognize a good thing when I see one.

all the best

Here is a hint. Find one of ForexHard's posts, and you will find where the latest indi is located. Any of his posts will do.

Anybody know where I can get an equivelant of this small trade manager used on the Vantage platform. I want one that can be used on any MT4.

Thanks for your great indicator. I primarily trade Renko charts. I was woundering if you could program the indicator to default to the Chart, that way it would default to my renko charts.

Thanks in advance

Ok here is a lessons learned. Since all of my charts so far have been on the winning side, here is a loser for me. And what i did wrong.

http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/i...9c8a197972.jpg

Looks good in the picture yes? Problem being, I use a trade manager to manage my trades for me once I manually enter the first "Breakout" trade. What went wrong here, is a decimal point error in my trade manager lot sizes that I set. So with this set of trades, it went to recovery trade 2 and would have hit TP. But due to a decimal point error on my part when entering the lot size for recovery trade 2, I am now down $30 instead of up $6.

So lesson learned: Pay attention to what you are entering. Decimal points make a huge difference.

Even with this setback I am still positive for the week so I cant be to upset about it.

Thanks to FX Hard, thanks to developpers of the indicator (i am using the 'old' one too).

I am in profit (+36% since february) and feel comfortable for the future.

Thanks to you guys !

WOW take a look at what I did. We can share all kinds of settings and come up with all kinds of interesting results. So what! You asked us to take a look at what you did. That's asking for something. I am sure you will be trading the next set up and probably bet the house on it because you have a garaunteed winner. Now this is not a pissing match because I don't care what you think of me. I care about this thread and to have a newbie come on and show off his shiney new toy is out of integrity with the thread. Next time show us the results of your trade and talk about how it felt when you were down 150 pips before going into profit. That's far more valuable to the thread than settings that produced a 100% winner or 6 million pips in 100 days.

Hi there,

This week I was busy, so I can't post in a while. For me, it was a bit complicated trading cable this week. Nowadays I looked some pips, so I'm happy and trying to perform better, and don't be afraid, I use to move TP and SL by the rushes of the market. This is not a good behaviour. Sure I can improve that.

I left you here posted two operations today on cable. First I was stopped out, and then reenter when it turns again up. Bought one lot. No martingale by the moment.

Have a nice good weekend!

Just something I discovered. If you trade GBP/USD and you don't know when to open your trading station, it's a good idea to check your charts around 8:00 - 8:30 AM GMT + 2:0. Often CZ are finished forming around this time and more important price often retraced back a little into the CZ without compromising the win ratio of the strategy. Entering the market with a few pips less to stop-loss at a same % of risked capital means a bigger R:R without touching your TP. Take a look around 8:00 - 8:30 if a new CZ formed take it at the break, don't wait for retrace, but often a little retrace took allready place without meaning that there is a higher probability of loss, would be a shame not to take this opportunity. I tested different inputs for bars en range, this phenomenon happens with most of them.

Just my 2 cents
