  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Introduction

I have started as a day trader about a month ago. Started with a mini acct and blew it up. Then did some reading- am still at it. Presently trading on a demo acct. Using the following system:
Trade only if,
1 EMA 5 crosses EMA 13
2. EMA 88 (High & Low) crosses over EMA 149 (High & Low)
3. RSI above/below 50
4. Slow stochastic rising above 20 or dropping below 80.

Problem is am lacking in patience and time to wait for all of the above to occur.

Hoping to get some good ideas here.

CCI trading on all markets and timeframes

I recently posted this. I trade futures, FX, and options. My first involvement with the markets was going to Optionetics and learning to trade options. Most of my option trades are diagonal trades, where I buy ITM options at least a month out and sell current month OTM or ATM options to cover much of or most of my cost. I enjoy trading ES and FX as well using an approach different than most. It involves double BB at 20, 2 and 2.5; 20, 31, & 62 EMAs; Stochastics Slow of 6,5,3 and 8,3,3 on same plane as price; and most important, is the CCI (Commodity Channel Index) at 14, -45, 45 on a histogram display. I go long (Buy)or buy calls on the first CCI bar that closes over 45 or Short (Sell) or buy puts on the first CCI bar below -45(or -45 to -200) Check it out. If you study this, you can use it to trade everything on any time frame. Once you have looked at enough charts on this setup, you will see just how accurate it is. Trading just the TF on 12-20-10, there were 8 winning trades and no loses for a total of 155 ticks. There is one other aspect of my CCI trading I have not yet disclosed and you can pick it up after looking at the level of the CCI bars and there relationship to one another at reversals. See for youself and good trading. I promise you, this is a winning system. I should add that this works on continuation trades and reversals. Trade with the trend on continuation trades and against the trend on reversals. On the reversal trades, move the stop to protect gains, as the market can always continue in its original direction, but most often it does not. I use the 20SMA, 20EMA, 34EMA to show the trends. The 20SMA is found in the BBs. My first trade shown above was a short of TF at 9:56 @ 780.4 which was closed @ 777.30 @ 10:15AM. Hope that helps, as that is a big clue. Let me know what you think.

Improving my trading


Hi there,

I trade the FDAX and 6E for approx 2 years now daily. (with Ups and Downs)

I hope to find more people here who do the same thing and exchange ideas about the FDAX and 6E trading. I work with Ninja 7 and added Market profile, which is a great help. Woodie CCI is a good help too. Still study this thing.

Thanks and succes everyone.

Rudy

Introduction

Hi to all,
Many years ago I traded Positions in Stocks chaoticly . At first I had success (luck), but at least I lost more than I won before. Now I decided to make it better and started with daytrading. At first I like to trade stocks at the Northamerican market. I'm well along in years and so I have made a lot of expieriences in life and in profession (analyst, programmer and consultant in mid and large sized companys) and hope to use this to my advantage in trading.

Hi from Motiv8d

Hi everyone, and thanks to mike for making the forum available.
I have been up and down trying day trading in very limited windows of time for a few years and am now in a position to finally dedicate a decent portion of time to it. Unfortunately the last couple of weeks I have been far too impatient and suffered some losses. So it's time to re-evaluate. I am also looking to change from MT4 to Multicharts and notice that it is used by Mike so it will be great to start using these forums to give some accountability to my trades and also communicate with others on the forums with regard to trading ideas and MC programming.

May the (market) force be with you

Motiv8d
