Changing indicator settings..yes or no?
 
I've been using indicators on and off, but have only recently started tuning

them to smooth out price more and only show the big moves. For example

MACD by default is 12,26,9...but i like to use 12,100,9. Anyone else modify

their indicators here?..if so what?

hi big_pipin,

yes I change indicator settings in all the indicators that I use, but the only one that I don't change is MacD, I just use different aspects of it depending on the time frame I'm using it in.

cheers

it all depends on the timeframe you use and the targets and stops you use. You have to find the parameters that work better for your trading style.
