I'm no chartmeister [but you play one on the internet? -ed], preferring the "Low I.Q. Approach" [which you've refined to .999 purity -ed], something that drives dyed-in-the-wool technicians* crazy. I can talk the lingo in very short bursts, at great effort. Here goes:

Some years ago I knew a retired analyst who had been able to make a meagre living by tracking the flow of funds in smaller western U.S. equity markets, Spokane, Salt Lake City, Denver, etc.
He was insane by the time I met him.
He'd made up his own language to describe what he was doing, the gist being that it is the marginal dollar going into (or coming out of) a market that makes the move.
His problem, well two actually, was that:
a) no one knew what the heck he was talking about and
b) there wasn't enough data to really capitalize on what he had been trying to do....
