PAGES
The Table of Contents page links are on the right hand side are always visible on each page you open.
     Clicking any of these links will open them in the same window that is currently being used.
Links that are embedded within the text on any page are in orange text.
     These will open in a new tab or a new window, dependent on how your browser is set up.

EMBEDDED PICTURES
Left click on any chart to open "Slideshow mode" which opens an overlay with thumbnails 
     of all the charts on that page. Left click again to move to the next chart. 
To exit slideshow mode, click the  that's within the overlay pane
     or click anywhere outside of the chart. This returns you to the page you were on.
For a larger view of an individual chart, right click it and select Open in a new tab.
Each chart's title bar will list the market and time frame (either the time-per-bar or the ticks-per-bar)
      followed by the template name. Often I show a bar count-down - (Timer) or (T).
Usually showing under the title bar is the Drawing Toolbar with another time frame indicator.
On the bottom is either a status bar or a time stamp indicating when the snapshot was taken.

DAILY TRADES
All completed trades are posted to my other blog -- Sharpshorts Daily Trade Results.
Trades are added each day and include two charts : one shows the rationals for entry and one for the results.
 A complete history is archived including the current month and going back for every month since 2013.

CHARTS and INDICATOR CONFIGURATION
The charts on this blog are usually set up with Price over a single study...(link to indicator variations)
Most of my charts combine a Stochastic (5,4,3) with a standard MACD in the study pane.
Some  include a TRIX histogram (6-period) and/or TRIX EMA (12-period) in with price.
DAILY charts  usually show 2 to 3 months of current activity.
SESSION charts  usually Time based candlesticks showing 1 to 10 days (1 hour per bar, 30 minute, 15 minute etc)..
TRADE charts  are usually OHLC Tick based bars showing very short term periods of the current day.

LAYOUT - MULIPLE TIME FRAMES
Combinations of daily, session and tick charts are always open within my ApexTrader trade station layouts.
With just a quick glance around my monitor array I can see long term through short term patterns
 which helps me avoid "tunnel vision fatigue" from focusing only on my trade charts.

Tick charts of various periods are used for trading - also called T-Mode charts.


Daily chart and session charts are for perspective. They are often used as P/A "spotter" charts.
