What Indicators do you use for your trading?

What are the best setups you use to make a decision of your trades. 

It appears I like swing trading or longer term positions.  The number one lesson I need to learn is patience.   I put some positions last week and in a few hours was stopped out.  

With the volatility of the market it is just going crazy.... 

I put some trades near 10-11pm and checked the trends for D1 and put individual trades where the stochastic, MACD and Bollinger bands were showing the same direction for a trend.  I picked up 50 pips in an hour.    

What do you do to put a plan in place and play out your trades?  

Humbly New at This.

I don't really use indicators. I use trendlines to build channels based on parallel lines and do counter trades (in the direction of the retracement, not the main trend). I put a quick summary here:

That is how I do my entries. As for my trade management rules, I'm currently working on them because my current ones are based on XAUUSD, and since its no longer available I'm doing some analysis and trials to adapt them to EURUSD

Now, Is this what you're looking for, or are you looking for advise on how to put your plan together?

Sure,
I try to follow the trends and sometimes I try to do opposite of what I see because the market makers are pushing the directions of a trade the opposite way.
