Re: Does anyone here use Bollinger bands, & MAs?

My only suggestion would be to narrow down all the input from the downloaded sources into a workable few. More can easily become less in this business, particularly with respect to derivative indicators, which have the curse of delay. I think it is good that you still retain an open mind in your quest, and seem to have plenty of energy..

I sense you are going down the automated road;;;;;;;;;;;;it is essential to *****reduce the number of variables*****. Also, do not fall into the trap of thinking reducing the timeframe reduces risk; it has a far greater negative impact on profit, and in fact increases risk, as strange as it may seem.

As an aside, the quirky astro references in Gann hit to the core; and will likely result in a great sacrifice of time and effort should you seek to pursue. He was a very intelligent student of markets,,,,,,,,,,, if not such a great trader himself.

At any rate, good luck in your journey. CO
