    The down time varies i use a little trick for this i set the charts i want to use open at long time frames and leave the system up as the markett runs through close then unless i have an issue i have them untill the system comes up again.

    There are some good how to import plugin instructions if you ask through the chat function and here

    Their archive really needs indexing better as the search function is to narrow unless you know exactly what you want to find.

    What that means? Should I look to short euro/usd or long according to this?
    You should look to go short the USD - i.e. buy EUR/USD and GBP/USD - yet its not so much help if scalping.

    If we look at the charts when the histogram is negative the EUR/USD moves higher yet it has little influence over the very short term so if scalping and not looking for moves bigger than 30 pips then it does not matter.




    A setup one can play with the SSI would be to go long in line with the 4 hour trend - i.e. bullish as long we trade above 1.2880 low - we just need to wait for price to trade lower to get a good risk reward ratio.

    To get better results but less trade opportunities one can use the bullish trend in the 24 hr time frame. If we look at the chart above price dropped from about 1.31 to 1.2850 - without the SSI changing its bullish bias - it only went from -2.3 to -1.4 - yet the move from 1.31 to 1.2850 was a bit special as the market rallied from 1.2250 area to 1.31 - SSI was bullish trough out this move - which is good.

    In the chart below you also see today's S2 level of the pivot point level - we should not really trade under this level - so for this you can use the SSI.

    These are just examples i usually take the pivots away once i know where they are and only bring them back if needed.

    those charts are spread over 2 32 inch monitors (ex cctv units only $50.00 each replaced after x hours in service) not perfect condition but excellent for charts.
