cool to have this forum.
Personally I currently trade using only the charts with the 20 ema with no other indicators. For me it has been a slow learning and improvement curve but it is clearer for me to make trading decisions this way.
An additional point to raise here is the difference between algorithmic and discretionary trading. Raw price action lends itself better to discretionary trading since it is more difficult to identify patterns and general price action context (for several time frames) in an algorithmic way, without turning to pattern recognition methods while the use of indicators can lend itself better to an algo.
I think (and in the process of researching it) that using some tools from machine learning, maybe I can turn my price action trading to be semi-automatic, but I am still getting there....
At the end, IMHO, raw price action is the closest we will get to be exposed to the actual "order book" and order flow of buyers and sellers.
I am considering to use for shorter time frames (<= 30m) an algo. approach using mainly indicators and discretionary trading for 1h, 4h and 1d using raw PA but it is still just an idea (due to the vast difference in signal to noise ratio in the different time frames).
