they come in three's
 
hey waterflame.... have you given any thought to possibly keeping the 3/34 ma cross but use the cci in a different manner.....

such as rather than have the ma cross and cci cross on the same bar,

let the long trade be when the 3 ma crosses above the 34 ma and cci is above 0.....

and for the short trade, when the 3 ma crosses below the 34 ma and cci is below the 0.....

i'm fairly confident this will improve your results..... backtesting a ea with the various conditions should let ya know for sure.....

also instead of using the charts 15 minute timeframe for the cci, using the daily timeframe cci with a period of 4 should help..... the higher timeframe might give a better sense of trend...... again backtesting via an ea will let ya know....

in any event, thanks for posting your system.....h

Hi, looks interesting, but it seems that one need a bit of practise (like any other strategy) in order to be profitable.

BTW, have you tried lower timeframes (like 5min)? Because watching a trade for sometimes 20+ hours is too much.

hi waterflame can you tell us when you trade this system and on which pairs you use it ?

have you given any thought to possibly keeping the 3/34 ma cross but use the cci in a different manner.....

- if something will be changed, all the system will be out of balance and harmony, if you change any variable of the indicators, everything will return in disacordance

read the ATTENTION in the first post with the rules

the thing is to keep it simple and effective, and not add too much adding of preferences and rules

such as rather than have the ma cross and cci cross on the same bar,

let the long trade be when the 3 ma crosses above the 34 ma and cci is above 0.....

and for the short trade, when the 3 ma crosses below the 34 ma and cci is below the 0.....

i'm fairly confident this will improve your results..... backtesting a ea with the various conditions should let ya know for sure.....

- i'm trading with it now about nearly 2 years

also instead of using the charts 15 minute timeframe for the cci, using the daily timeframe cci with a period of 4 should help..... the higher timeframe might give a better sense of trend...... again backtesting via an ea will let ya know....

- as i wrote, every timeframe is the same, i doesn't matter in which timeframe you trade, its a question of your money risk management, and if your account is able to hold big trades

in any event, thanks for posting your system
thank you , keep heading

you are welcome, and about the timeframe, every job can be boring if you don't enjoy it, i also will make you aware of the 5 min chart risk, that causes very near price action, and definitely sharp volatile signals, most trades can be stopped out with your spread,
this is why i suggest only to trade 15min and higher timeframes

hi waterflame can you tell us when you trade this system and on which pairs you use it ?
i only use 4 pairs

eur/usd is very smooth in trading, have low spread, but less profit

eur/chf consolidate too much, but have nice break outs and good profit

usd/jpy has low spread, most time volatile, and very nice profit

gbp/jpy is maybe a bit dangerous with the spread, but very active and

gives best profit

when you have added the file to expert/indicators file, restart MT4, than it must appear

oh no, its not an Expert Advisor, its simply the CCI indicator with 34 variable preference, dont put the file in expert, but in C:\Program Files\MetaTrade\experts\indicators

you have to use the system manualy, i haven't the EA for this system, i don't know writing MQL

sorry

Thanks for sharing your system WaterFlame. I'm testing on a 5 min chart with some different settings. I do like your 15 min setup as well
