By Hector in Trade Articles on 01 February 2019

POEMS Mercury

As a price action trader, you’ll be spending a lot of your time looking at charts on your watchlist. So you want to make sure that you are looking at the right things to help you make better decisions. The platform that I use in my chart analysis is POEMS Mercury and would recommend it for active traders.

POEMS Mercury  has more advanced features for charting and trading compared to POEMS 2.0.  The first thing to do is to get rid of the cluttered charts and avoid information overload.

Chart Setups For One Good Trade

To help you see the same chart setups and signals that we discuss in One Good Trade, I have listed the steps to help you optimized your charts. I can assure you that as you spend more screen time looking at charts and know what you are looking for against a checklist before making a trade, you will get better over time to do your own fishing for the next One Good Trade.

Let get your gears ready! Download the Poems Mercury platform with the link below and read more on the features and FAQ.


After successful installation, U may login using the same ID and Password for POEMS.


Let’s start setting up your chart with the following steps: 

1. Step One

i) Remove all the indicators that U may see in the Chartview until you have just the candlesticks as shown below.
ii) Check the chain icon    circled in red at the top right corner of the ChartView. With this checked, Your are able to scan your charts in your PriceView watchlist easily by just clicking the next counter on the PriceView and the corresponding chart will appear on the ChartView.

ii) Click OK and your chart should now like the one shown below. Well Done!

4. Step Four

The next time when you login again, the color setting may revert back to Ash Gray.

U can do the same steps in Step Two but now, U do not need to change it again but just need to retrieve your One Good Trade color setting to change the color theme.

Great! With the charts now ready, you can start practicing on your chart reading skill on your existing portfolio and your watch list. Start by drawing the Support and Resistance on your charts and ask whether there are trends for price action trading.
