i use jing/snagit for photos.
If they are taken in reasonable size (and .jpg), the forum displays them in the same/proper size.
Not sure why some of you post so small photos that after we open them they look too small.
btw: very nice progress on the 121 EA. Think maybe about adding some confirmations.
Thanks kopaszn, but I'm on a mac :-(
Paul how did you attach them in your posts? (#64 & #65)
Under my Mac I use this:

it is drag'n'drop, and the link can be used the same way!
When I do backtest with EA+indi, or want to show history still nothing shows up (must be different reason, not just that at the moment there is no signal). Any suggestion? Thanks
Paul, he he Its like I'm talking to myself...
MT4 chart on fullscreen so I press print screen.
Then I go to paint shop pro (or any other graphical program) and paste MT4 image.
Then I 'select' the section of the chart that I want.
Then I cut it.
Repaste it and save it as a jpeg on my desktop.
Then I go to Reply to this thread.. Go Advanced.. Attachments .. Manage Attachments..Add Files..Basic Uploader.. Select Files..Browse To Desktop and choose jpeg and voila...
Very quick and easy
under mac the most simple way to take screenshot: 3 buttons press together: command+shift+4 and cursor will change to cross. select the screen you want to take a shot. The file will automatically be on your desktop in png format. I think for forex and screens PNG is much better: smaller file, and more clear, without moir pictures. Sorry for off-topic. If it is not clear just PM me, and I will help you.
Hey guys, Anyone know why I get this problem. The one to one EA and the abc indicator are both loaded but it only trades once at the very beginning then no trades for a year. I tried it on cable, EURUSD, EURJPY and the Ausi.
Thanks Paul and kopaszn for all the info, I'm ok with the actual screenshotting part, I just wasn't sure why when I upload them to the forum it automatically shrinks them. I'll try changing them to jpg and see if that makes any difference. failing that sounds like imageshack is the go. Thanks again.
I think in among all that there are 2 questions re the EA, please let me know if I'm wrong and I've missed anything.
1 @ kopaszn re history: There is a setting in the indi called iextMaxBars. for the normal kharmonics indi this is set to 20000, we've reduced it to 2000 as it drastically improves backtest performance. If you want to show history I find you generally need to bump this up. max is 50000. I just loaded it up on the 1M eurusd and last patterns it found were 1st March starting around 6am finishing around 10.30am (ABCD & 5.0). Probably worth noting here, when a 5.0 is found an ABCD will always be found as well. Through some of the testing we identified the kharmonics code used for the ABCD leg of a 5.0 wasn't the same as just the ABCD code. For John's strategy the ABCD code worked better, so we used that to verify the ABCD leg of the 5.0. I realise this may seem a bit weird at first, what's the point of turning on both patterns if one find the other. The point is that you can have an ABCD that isn't a 5.0, so I thought it best to be able to trade one or both patterns. As mentioned previously, it should favour the 5.0 (larger tp), but at the mo seems to be a bug which I'm working on resolving.
2. @ Jonty172: Can you give me the exact dates and TF's your doing the backtests on so I can compare on my platform please?
Confirmations is definitely the next step, John has some ideas for gartleys based on fib channels which he's posted previosuly. I don't see that being too difficult to add in. Are you able to offer any guidance on these ABCDs and 5.0s? Someone has mentioned a fair bit of success with reversal magic and balance magic, have you had any experience in coding these?

"reversal magic and balance magic" - no, it is still ahead of me.
This thread on this topic ( Price reversal points) is booming and i hope lots of valuable things we will learn from there.
tq blott.. so i have to paste it at experts-indicator..
