One item I must mention. The ideas I present are from a lifetime of reading and listening to others. In other words, I do a lot of bench-marking. I combine what I think are the "best practices" and discipline myself to use them. The combined efforts of some really great technicians are in my work: , Justin Mamis, Jason Stapleton, John Murphy, John , Charles-Dow, Robert Precther, Harold McKinley , Ralph Nelson , and others too numerous to honor. I do charting simply because I enjoy it. Yours for better trading, Don.
