"A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one"


0. Symbols

The markets monitored and open right now.


Daily ADX with the default period of 14, rounded as an integer. The easiest (and pretty reliable) way to assess a trend. The sign after the value is which of the DIs is above, either + or -.

2. Bias

The general bias, based on a long-term simple moving average, currently using 20 weeks.

Long = price up, Short = price down, + = sloping up, - = sloping down.

3.D Ma

The position of price with both 50-day and 200-day moving averages.
"+" means price is above 50 and 50 above 200.
"-" is price under the 50 and 50 under the 200.
"=" signals any other combination of the three, meaning a possible daily range.

4.D Cc

The "Consecutive Closes" in one direction. The more, the merrier. A quick way to assess the strength of the trend or for the matter the bad quality of a correction (too strong perhaps?)

If there are some blank values this is because yesterday's bar was a kind of doji, so there was no clear close in one direction.

5.D C%

Percent Change for the most recent closed daily bar. For example 0.5 means yesterday was a 0.5% gain. -0.5 means a 0.5% daily loss.

6.D Rx

The range of the most recent closed daily bar (high-low) compared with the average range for the last 20 trading days. 1 means the average volatility for the last month.
2 means a bar which was 2 times bigger than the average volatility. A quick way to spot volatily compression or expansion.

7.D Ko

"KO" is the short for "Keltner Oscillator", the position of price in a Keltner channel, expressed as an integer and acting like an oscillator, where 0 is the lower band, 100 is the upper band and 50 is the middle of the channel, for daily bars.

Of course it can have values higher than 100 or lower than 0, as price often pierces the outer bands. More about KO on Adam Grimes blog, who coined the name "Kpos" for it. I don't like "Kpos" hence "KO" here. :-)

8.H Ko

Hourly Keltner Oscillator

9.H Hit

"Hit" is one of the most important screening criteria in my trading, basically it's whether the price hit/crossed recently any of the Keltner's outer bands and then applied a few additional filters in order to stay away from climactic moves, conflicting timeframes or waning momentum. This is my personal "hitlist", hence the name. It is marked in the table with an "*".

It is a good indicator for the quality of the impulsive move, i.e. the most recent swing.

10.H OB

A very fast oscillator, showing if there is any OverBought/Sold tendency for hourly timeframe.

11.D OB

The same OverBought/Sold tendency for daily timeframe.

12.D X0

If the current daily bar crossed the 20 EMA and the direction of crossing, "&0" means the current open bar. Basically shows if a retracement was deep enough.

13.H X0

Crossing on the current hourly timeframe.

14.H X1

If the previous hourly bar crossed the 20 EMA.

15.H X2

If the bar before the previous hourly bar crossed the 20 EMA.

16.D Ty

"Ty" is the short for today/yesterday. A quick way to assess the direction, volatility and breakouts. "U" means the today's price broke up the yesterday's high, "D" the today's price broke down the yesterday's low, "E"=expansion, the today's price broke both yesterday's high and low, and "C"=contraction means today's price is still between the yesterday's high and low.

17. Fx

Marked in the table with a "$" if the symbol is a currency pair, simply meaning that symbol is a currency, nothing else. Useful if you want to filter out the fx symbols in the search form. It is not showed in any columns set except "ALL" set.

18. D^

Daily hooks. If the fast line of a momentum oscillator made a "hook", either on current bar or recently, in the direction of the main trend, thus signalling a possible termination of a pullback.

+ and - means bullish or bearish hook (similar to a bullish/bearish flag).

19. H^

Hourly hooks.

20.D NRx

NR9, NR7 and NR4

Narrow Range 7 marks a day which has the narrowest range among the 7 days, NR4 among the 4, NR9 in 9.
