The Montauk Edition: Project Looking Glass
The v2v dynamic trading system is not the usual thing out there. It doesn't have any arrows or trigger alerts for a Buy or Sell signal. For such, it needs the one who's in between the keyboard and a chair.
─ The indicators/tools on this system are just another visual representation of time and historical price.
─ This system is a tool that may help you manage your trades or position your positions.
─ And the system is designed for a discretionary type of a trader
─ Keep this in mind... There's always room for improvement in this system.
─ Thus, expect constant updates from time-to-time.
─ Ideas/suggestions are welcome but don't expect to be added or considered, and even reply to your post.
※ Heiken Ashi ─ Average Price Bars ( HA-APB ) with PAC
The difference between the original HA-APB Price Action Channel ( PAC ) and this variation of PAC (using JMA, DSMA, and HMA), is that the latter is using three touchpoints instead of just the two-line PAC. This one added the Average Price to see if APB closed above or below it.
☛ HA-APB based Price Action Channel ( PAC ) and
☛ Average Price Line (HA-APB Low + HA-APB High)/2
☛ Fused with MTF mode.
☛ Using T3 MA and with...
☛ Jurik Smoothing/Filter and Deviation-Scaled Moving Average (DSMA)
...some extras added: Access buttons for features & functions, and a symbol or pair and timeframe switch panel
✜ Price Action Channel (PAC)
─ It provides an overall direction near the Price.
─ Reveals periods of consolidation.
─ Reveals periods of volatility.
─ It may Use as an Exit Target or
─ Use as a Trailing Stop Loss
※ Neural Network ─ HMA-DSMA
☛ Using a variation of HMA algorithm of low-lag to zero-lag, and then... fused with the following:
☛ Jurik Filters/Smoothing and custom MA types
☛ Combined with Deviation-Scaled Moving Average Algorithm, and
☛ Better & Best Formula (Better & APB calculation)
✦ The button text shows the average predicted open price
✦ As always this type of indicator eats a lot of CPU resources...
※ Volume Profile ─ Range ( VP-R )
☛ Based on VP - Range indicator by © FXcoder
☛ This is a modified version by v2v (streamlined features) ─ VWAP & PVP (Peak Volume Price) line only
☛ Default range type: ADR
☛ Work with Pivot Fibs plus
☛ Code optimized to adhere with v2v coding structure ( e.g. control center navigational features)
☛ Ideally suited for M30 & H1 time frame using M1 or M5 data source.
- For day sessions... the M5, M15 and M30 charts is the setup choice. Though the M5 timeframe is much more accurate, M30 is recommended for more clarity. Also, it is a standard volume profile calculation method.
※ Long & Short DSMA
DSMA was described in the “The Deviation-Scaled Moving Average.” article of July 2018 TASC Magazine
There John Ehlers describes not only the Deviation scaled moving average but a cross of two DSMAs. This indicator is the system of those two DSMAs ─ But with this indicator, it is a system multiple DSMA crossovers.
Similar to the GUPPY indicator in terms of Moving Average values and how it is being used ─But with the following fused algorithms...
☛ JMA (Jurik Moving Average): Smoothing/Filter
─ Long DSMA acts like the Slow JMA, and
─ Short DSMA acts like the Fast JMA
☛ Hull Moving Average non-lag variation
...this has been applied to all other indicators within this system
※ PIVOT FIBS plus
☛ This indicator is made and fused version by v2v
☛ Based on All Pivots indicator by Igor at TrendLabaratory
☛ Streamlined to Pivot Fibonacci ONLY ─ Yearly, Quarterly, Monthly, Weekly, Daily, and H4
☛ Added a feature to navigates using the v2v time frame button switch behavior, and among other things.
☛ Dynamic Open Session/State retention switch behavior
☛ Future Sessions and Previous Session Range
☛ Pivot Fibs pip distance from Pivot Base Price (e.g. Typical, Current Open...etc.)
☛ Weekly High & Low Levels
☛ PVP = Peak Volume Price Line (default Yellow color line). This is based on Volume Profile (without the volume bars)
☛ This indicator works with VP-R and VWAP indicator
☛ Best suited for M30 & H1 time frame.
☛ Forex Fixings ─ Frankfurt and CME-2 Fix ─ fx fixing guides
☛ The One Box Session ( daily <=H4, weekly >H4, monthly >=W1 )
☛ Open Session (Sydney - Tokyo - London - New York). You may need to adjust accordingly with your broker server time (chart time) ─ for session time guides
☛ Daily Open Trading System (DOTS) method by Dean Malone ─ originally use Current Open base price, but this indicator is also plotted with other Pivot base price calculations (e.g. Typical, Previous Close, etc.). Note... it uses the Top & Bottom most level line only with extended DOTS level.
☛ Average Range (Daily-Weekly-Monthly) Dash info >>> n-Days(today range), Previous, Weekly and current Price distance to ADR, AWR & AMR High & Low
- ADR (Average Daily Range)
- AWR (Average Weekly Range)
- AMR (Average Monthly Range)
- With features midpoint range using Pivots (current) and PVP (current or previous)
Pivot Fib Levels: Now with the NEW Pivot VWAP & PVP
- R1/S1 = R38/S38
- R2/S2 = R61/S61
- R3/S3 = R100/S100
Pivot Base Price: Typical (default)
Pivot Base Price = (Previous High + Previous Low + Previous Close) / 3
Range = Previous High - Previous low
R38 = Range * 0.382 + Pivot Base Price
※ VWAP by v2v
The Volume Weighted Average Price ( VWAP ) is simply the average of the volume distribution function.
What's new with this VWAP indicator?
☛ Uses Average Range ( ADR/AWR/AMR ) and
☛ Average True Range ( ATR ) values for Shifted VWAP Deviation.
☛ Average Price line = (High + Low) /2
☛ Default range type: ATR
☛ It includes v2v's update speed control feature.
☛ This indicator works with VP-R and Pivot Fibs plus indicator
☛ Option to attach multiple instances of this indicator by changing Instance ID ( Unique ID ) ─Ideally for using the anchored VWAP strategy
☛ Best suited for lower or equal to M30 & H1 time frame.
☑ Key Takeaways:
☛ A rising VWAP, and/or the price above the VWAP line, means the price may reflect uptrend move or likely in bullish sentiment.
☛ A rising VWAP, and/or the price below the VWAP line, means the price may reflect a downtrend move or likely in bearish sentiment.
☛ Rallies with a declining VWAP are treated as bounces which may likely fail.
☛ Be more aware of VWAP's current direction... more than closing session price ─if it is above or below the VWAP-within a session or two (e.g. Asian, Euro, or U.S. session).
☛ Like any Support & Resistance or Supply & Demand level, the more they are tested, the more likely that it may fail.
☛ Don't rely on VWAP exclusively to determine a trend, since it is only showing a historical average, and not what is happening currently or in the future.
☛ Investors may use VWAP to assess the price they paid for a security/instrument throughout a particular session (e.g. Asian/Europe/NY, daily...etc.), if the price they bought at is higher than the VWAP, then they may have overpaid. If it is less than VWAP, then they purchased shares at a good price.
☛ The VWAP began as a tool for trading shares/stock on a daily setup only. However, in these times there were other investors or traders that started to use this more recently with financial instruments, such as Currency Futures or Forex pairs as some of the modern algorithms began to optimize this tool to integrate with their trading strategy or algorithms.
☛ Traders and analysts use the VWAP to eliminate the noise that occurs throughout a particular session so they can gauge what prices buyers and sellers are trading at.
The VWAP gives traders an insight into how a security/instrument trades for that day and determines, for some, a good price at which to buy or sell.
✦ If the price is below the VWAP... and the price is rallying back into the VWAP, then it may act as resistance.
✦ If the price is above the VWAP... and the price pullback into the VWAP, then it may act as support.
✦ Wait for the market to start to get a move and have it bounce once or twice off of the VWAP. Once that happens, you know that the market has addressed the VWAP (by checking on a 5-minute up to 30/or 60-minute chart).
✦ When the price tries to break above or below the VWAP line, there is usually a battle between buyers and sellers. If the price tries to break above or below the VWAP level multiple times throughout the day, traders and analysts can see that it is a good price to either buy or sell. However, some short-term traders, for instance, wanted to wait for one side to lose the battle and either go long on a break above the VWAP or short on a break below the VWAP.
☑ Limitations of Using Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP)
While some institutions may prefer to buy when the price of a security is below the VWAP, or sell when it is above, VWAP is not the only factor to consider. In strong uptrends, the price may continue to move higher for many days, without dropping below the VWAP at all, or only occasionally. Therefore, waiting for the price to fall below VWAP could mean a missed opportunity if prices are rising quickly.
☑ Other VWAP trading methodologies
With the above limitations, you may use some other VWAP trading methodologies being used by other traders to minimized missed opportunities or even better... a high probability setup.
✦ MIDAS approach by Dr. Paul Levine ( RIP ) or use the Jperl strategy (If I'm not mistaken, his name is Jerry Perl), together with the Volume Profile indicator.
✦ The anchored VWAP approach is usually using two VWAP indicators wherein the (start from) is anchored based on the last significant move due to a big news event, as an example, NFP, CPI, etc., or based on session open ( e.g. NY session, London session, Asian session... etc ).
※Traders Dynamic Zones ( TDZ )
This indicator is a TDI variation... now known as, Traders Dynamic Zones ( TDZ )
✔ Fused functions & features below:
☛ Dynamic Zones by Leo ZamanskyPhd. and David Stendahl
☛ Jurik filter - phase, smoothing and
☛ RSI-Trend Strength Index (RSX) by Mark Jurik.
☛ Better & Best Formula (Better & APB calculation)
☛ Uses Hull MA (by Allan Hull) but this one is a variation from Low lag to zero-lag combined with...
☛ Ehler's Deviation-Scaled Moving Average (DSMA)
☛ Powered by Smart MTF features
☛ Smart MTF Mode - update speed feature is not activated while on MTF mode
☛ Recommended TF: H4 & D1 TF
☛ Recommended RSI/HMA speed: 1.8 or 3.0 (aggressive)
✔ Dynamic Zones ─ The Dynamic Zone indicator is best explained by describing how it solves a common trading problem.
Extreme investing employs the use of oscillators to exploit tradable trends in the market. This style of investing follows a very simple form of logic: only enter the market when an oscillator has moved far above or below traditional trading levels. However, these indicator driven systems, cannot evolve with the market because they use the fixed buy and sell zones. Traders typically use one set of buy and sell zones for a bull market and substantially different zones for a bear market.
Herein lies the problem. Once traders begin introducing their market opinions into trading equations, by changing the zones, they negate the system's mechanical nature. The objective is to have a system automatically define its own buy and sell zones and thereby profitably trade in any market -- bull or bear. Dynamic Zones offer a solution to the problem of fixed buy and sell zones for any indicator driven systems.
✔ Jurik Filters, Phase, and Smoothing
This TDI version uses JMA's (Jurik Research Moving Average) phase and smoothing calculation. Have you noticed how moving averages add some lag (delay) to your signals? ... especially when price gaps up or down in a big move, and you are waiting for your moving average to catch up? Wait no more! JMA eliminates this problem forever and gives you the best of both worlds: low lag and smooth lines.
Ideally, you would like a filtered signal to be both smooth and lag-free. Lag causes delays in your trades, and increasing lag in your indicators typically result in lower profits. In other words, latecomers get what's left on the table after the feast has already begun. The JMA's improved timing and smoothness will astound you.
JMA is a powerful adaptive tracker that can smooth time series data with a very small lag, no overshoots and no oscillations. The algorithm is stable and avoids the complexities of neural networks. JMA delivers the best all-around performance for smoothness, accuracy, and timeliness.
✔ Hull Moving Average
There are many types of moving averages, the most basic being the Simple Moving Average (SMA). Of all the moving averages the SMA lags price the most. The Exponential and Weighted Moving Averages were developed to address this lag by placing more emphasis on more recent data. The Hull Moving Average (HMA), developed by Allan Hull, is an extremely fast and smooth moving average. In fact, the HMA almost eliminates lag altogether and manages to improve smoothing at the same time.
With TDZ indicator combined with Hull MA variation with Jurik filters, and phase & smoothing that ultimately eliminates lagging.
✔ RSI-Trend Strength Index (RSX)
RSI is a very popular technical indicator because it takes into consideration market speed, direction, and trend uniformity. However, its widely criticized drawback is its noisy (jittery) appearance. The RSX retains all the useful features of RSI, but with one important exception: the noise is gone with no added lag.
✔ Vertical Horizontal Filter (VHF)
Vertical Horizontal Filter (VHF) was created by Adam White to identify trending and ranging markets. VHF measures the level of trend activity, similar to ADX in the Directional Movement System. Trend indicators can then be employed in trending markets and momentum indicators in ranging markets.
✔ Deviation-Scaled Moving Average (DSMA)
The new DSMA made by John Ehlers and featured in the July 2018 issue of TASC magazine. The DSMA is a data smoothing technique that acts as an exponential moving average with a dynamic smoothing coefficient. The smoothing coefficient is automatically updated based on the magnitude of price changes. In the Deviation-Scaled Moving Average, the standard deviation from the mean is chosen to be the measure of this magnitude. The resulting indicator provides substantial smoothing of the data even when price changes are small while quickly adapting to these changes.
✔ RSI & RSX haDelta
haDelta is a simple formula originally developed and published by Mr. Dan Valcu. The idea behind haDelta is to quantify HA candles. By doing this, one can measure momentum and this is very important when you use haDelta for reversals. It measures the difference between HA Close and HA Open. Caution: High sensitivity if used.
※ Volumes on Main Chart
This indicator is a Fused version of the following indicators... initial version of volumes on the main chart by Mladen and Paul Hayes Scalper volatility indicator ported from cTrader platform. >>> more about Volumes on MainChart <<<
Added Fused functions & features:
☛ volumes & volatility alerts with optional user-defined values.
☛ auto-adjusted zoom in/out for volume bars and location
☛ automated average volume bars based on daily, weekly and yearly with optional user-defined values
☛ auto-adjusted volume bars thickness
☛ with a hidden navigational switch to hide/unhide volume bars and
☛ added extra .wav alert sound files
Most of these indicators require the Volume on Main Chart indicator wherein it acts as the global control center <<< Sorry, that is what it is, designed to work with each other. For instance, the TDZ indicator execution process is triggered by Volume on Main Chart indicator once the volatility spikes up based on the last average pip count (e.g. from three previous bars ─ set TF or example 1-minute candle). And this besides the normal triggers via set time in minutes or on a new bar.
✔ T3 by Tim Tillson
Tim Tillson is a software project manager at Hewlett-Packard, with degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science. He has privately traded options and equities for 15 years.
"Digital filtering includes the process of smoothing, predicting, differentiating, integrating, separation of signals, and removal of noise from a signal. Thus many people who do such things are using digital filters without realizing that they are; being unacquainted with the theory, they neither understand what they have done nor the possibilities of what they might have done."
This quote from R. W. Hamming applies to the vast majority of indicators in technical analysis. Moving averages, be they simple, weighted, or exponential, are lowpass filters; low-frequency components in the signal pass through with little attenuation, while high frequencies are severely reduced. "Oscillator" type indicators (such as MACD, Momentum, Relative Strength Index) are another type of digital filter called a differentiator. Tushar Chande has observed that many popular oscillators are highly correlated, which is sensible because they are trying to measure the rate of change of the underlying time series, i.e., are trying to be the first and second derivatives we all learned about in Calculus.
We use moving averages (lowpass filters) in technical analysis to remove the random noise from a time series, to discern the underlying trend or to determine prices at which we will take action. A perfect moving average would have two attributes:
It would be smooth, not sensitive to random noise in the underlying time series. Another way of saying this is that its derivative would not spuriously alternate between positive and negative values.
It would not lag behind the time series it is computed from. Lag, of course, produces late buy or sell signals that kill profits.
The only way one can compute a perfect moving average is to know the future, and if we had that, we would buy one lottery ticket a week rather than trade!
✔ Tick Volume Indicator ( TVI ) by William Blau.
In his book "Momentum, Direction and Divergence" (1995). If you like to learn more, we advise you to read this book. His book focuses on three key aspects of trading: momentum, direction, and divergence. Blau, who was an electrical engineer before becoming a trader, thoroughly examines the relationship between price and momentum.
TVI is calculated according to this formula:
TVI = 100 x (DEMA(UpTicks) - DEMA(DownTicks))/(DEMA(UpTicks) + DEMA(DownTicks))
The TVI helps identify whether buyers or sellers are in control. If the TVI is trending up, it indicates that buyers are in control. If the TVI is trending down, it indicates that sellers are in control. If the TVI is above zero, it indicates that net buying has taken place over the time-period displayed. If the TVI is below zero, it indicates that net selling has taken place over the time-period displayed.
If a large number of trades are taking place at a specific price level (i.e., a flat spot forms on the tick chart) and the TVI is rising (falling), look for the price to break out on the upside (downside).
☝ If v2v system/indicators don't seem to work on your end or found it useless, simply move on as there are thousands of other systems/indicators out there . . . and this may not be ready for you or is not for you!
✌ On how to use the system effectively will depend on your utmost keen observation (or greater experience), due diligence, understanding, and prerogative. Hence, this may not be recommended for noobs... especially when using the VWAP, VP─R & TDZ indicator, and even more with Pivot Fibs plus.
※ The core indicator of this system are the following ( in no particular order ) :
- Pivot Fibs plus
- Volumes on Main Chart
- Volume Profile - Range ( VP-R ) and VWAP
- Traders Dynamic Zones.
Most of these indicators included in this system (by default) are using the limited number of bars option to load much faster on your chart. I have to do this kind of set up since Volume/Market profile indicators are heavy to load and whenever the MTF mode is triggered with HA-APB bars. Not to mention the MT4 platform itself (if not that, your computer processing power limitation). Other benefits of such setup is a room for extra process functions & features that can be added to the system.
☛ The v2v dynamic system is best suited on H4 TF or higher using a Trend following strategy... However, if Session timings are the main or crucial part of a strategy, one must/should or may consider using the H1 timeframe and below ONLY. This is particularly logical or correct as the indicator builds pivots using the current chart prices (data). So there is no sense to use the session guides ( Weekly-Monthly-Q1-Yearly ) for time frames higher than H1. It means... that one needs to be careful when using a Weekly chart to build MN1, Q1, and YR1 because one can't simply get the exact start date of these timeframes. Which means... don't simply rely on Pivots build if your current chart timeframe is higher than H1. Thus, on the W1 chart, one should look "inside" of bars to find the correct prices for 1st January and 31st December of each year (almost always). Hence, do not use the Pivots on larger than D1 timeframes, in fact... it is highly suggested.
☛ With Volume Profile ─ Range indicator which is typically suited for the M30 timeframe is very useful together with Pivot Fibs plus an indicator that has the PVP (Peak Volume Price, also known as POC) without the horizontal volume bars.
☛ Swing Traders may use the TDZ's dynamic floating levels or zones ( band high & low with midpoint ) that may look to show OB/S levels (careful, looks ONLY).
☛ The Pivot Fibs indicator is armed with calculated ranges wherein the Daily and Weekly range info is better or more reliable if the current timeframe is less than or equal to the H1 timeframe only... more importantly when gauging or sizing up the trading range.
☛ The Heiken Ashi - Average Price Bars (APB) with Price Action Channel (PAC) may act like the cherries on top or icing on the cake in terms of a Scalping strategy or if used as an Exit indicator... more so when in an MTF mode.
If you don't consider all/or some of the above information... Simply use the Neural Network HMA-DSMA indicator which requires a little amount of thinking but one must be armed with trained intuition ; )─
★ The goal is to have a well-informed decision before entering into a trade. Thus, I'm using this system once I have my perceived fundamental bias or understanding and beyond (i.e. sentiment, qualitative & quantitative analysis).
★ Using this system may help to identify possible Price inflection/turning points, trend confluence, and/or chart structure for proper or well-defined (planned) entries and exit points.
✍ Note to Self: “While no methodology works in every instance . . . I have never seen anything so consistent ” ─ just like this system ; )─
☀ You may agree or disagree... ; )- but here are the collected reasons why traders fail to be successful in trading... #whytradersfail ─by Hanover
☛ No proven methodological edge
☛ Lack of knowledge and experience
☛ No trading plan
☛ Failure to accept losses ( causes recovery systems, irrecoverable open losses, revenge trading )
☛ Poor or non-existent risk management ( i.e. focusing on the return over everything else )

☛ Undercapitalization ( causes greed, over-trading, over-leveraging ) -- NOTE: according to many brokers, this is the most common cause of failure.
☛ Over-reliance on money management ( including ideas such as same-pair hedges, baskets, grids, averaging down recklessly, martingale variants )
☛ Complacency: a lack of respect for the market
☛ Laziness: trying to find a color-by-number shortcut to riches (i.e. make the most money in the shortest time with the least effort)
☛ Adherence to "$250 to $100,000 in 6 months" type notions
☛ Adherence to trading myths

In case of issues due to previous versions... The v2v dynamic trading system (including News Event indicator) uses global variables extensively. Below are the maintenance steps that you may follow:
MT4 global variable maintenance:
- Press "F3" on your keyboard to delete all or selectively the global variable(s)
- Or you may use the included Volume on Chart indicator
MT4 object maintenance:
- Press "Ctrl" + "B" on your keyboard
- Delete all (...and "Ctrl"+"A") or selectively (...put click on checkbox) the objects ─ more importantly, to reset the vertical line guides chart positions that are used for setting up VWAP and Volume Profile chart range.

A must before loading the v2v dynamic trading system ( new steps )
Follow the steps below:
- Open an M1 chart
- Press "F2" key to load History Center
- Navigate to the currency pair and the "1 Minute (M1)" history data for the chart you have open in your terminal (be sure to "double click" the "1 Minute (M1)" selection in history center so it becomes the active selection)
- Then left-click once on any of the data rows in the right-hand window of the History Center (it doesn't matter which one)
- Click the "Add" button, this pops up another window titled "Bar" and the default selection is on the "year"
- Enter 1970
- Then select "OK"... and it creates a new bar with the timestamp and price info you just added.
- Now select "Close" in the History Center
- Attached a script located under "Scripts" folder (with v2v_dynamic_system.zip) >>> Attached this to your chart: ForceLoadHistoricalData.ex4
- Navigate to your M1 chart of interest and then from the terminal window (press Ctrl-T) select "Journal "-> go to main chart window and right-click mouse button and select "Refresh"...this will refresh the chart and attempts to fill any time gaps in the chart data (which now includes your year 1970 data point) with server data
Step 10 continued...Now your chart will have pulled anywhere from 2048 to 65536 M1 bars from your broker's server (not Metaquotes server) and is usually far more data than you can get the broker to cough up when you try and manually scroll your M1 chart back in time.
If everything went fine... then you've quickly downloaded all the broker's M1 data on your currency pair that the broker is going to let you have, much faster than holding down the home or page-up key for minutes and minutes to download even fewer data. Now, you may continue with the rest of the time frames. But, don't forget to delete the year 1970 dummy tick data after it downloads more history, then you may need to check & verify if after the deletion (1970 record) if still got maximum historical data has been downloaded otherwise add 1970 record once again.

✜ v2v dynamic trading system: powered by MomenTicks ✜
Now with Dominant Cycle Period as an option to change the default Period dynamically for the following tools:
- VP-Range: ATR/ADR bands calculation and period
- VWAP: ATR/ADR bands calculation & period
- TDZ: the dynamic zone top, mid and bottom bands only
- v2v Momenticks: period
Based on Homodyne Discriminator by John F. Ehlers, Rocket Science for Traders >>> here
This type of algorithm exhibits superior performance in a low signal-to-noise environment.
Homodyne means I use the signal multiplied by itself one bar ago to produce a zero-frequency beat note. This beat note carries the phase angle of the one-bar change. Still using the basic definition of a cycle, the one-bar rate of change of phase is exactly the cycle period.
※ v2v Momenticks ※ ─ fused by v2v and derived from the word Momentum + tick data (volume history)
Linear momentum is defined as the product of a system's mass multiplied by its velocity. In symbols, linear momentum is expressed as p = mv. Momentum is directly proportional to the object's mass and also its velocity. Thus the greater an object's mass or the greater its velocity, the greater its momentum.

By the way, some of these indicators shared herein doesn't simply work in stand-alone. Meaning... selectively using just one or so indicator out of the v2v system may not work properly.
Note: The zip file contains a template ( v2v_trading_system.tpl ) and all the libraries ( dynamicZone.dll and BPNN.dll ) required by the system/indicators.
Again, I just wanted to add or to reiterate (without sounding rude), that this v2v dynamic trading system is not for noobs, and I won't say it that this system or indicators are for noobs as it would tend to sound not a good trading tool to have ; )─ I just meant that it requires greater experience to understand how the system works. Otherwise, look for another trading system that makes you think less and adhere to the mantra of the KISS approach.
This is not a trading system that shows you a buy or a sell signal. It is a trading system that makes you a responsible trader that uses more of your brainpower and not just simply waiting for a buy & sell signal or a pattern to form. This system will let you create your combination of confluences/setups and produced your own technical baseline bias before any type of price action shows up on your chart. However, at the end of the day, it is you and you alone who can figure out what works and what doesn’t. Good luck!
