Hi Charles,

Congratulations for your win!

In post #336 you introduced Volume as a filter on 1508 charts and than you stopped using it a few days later. Any reasons?

Thanks, Mich.

I still use volume in my analysis on a seperate chart that I dont show on my post or videos because I dont feel comfortable trying to to teach it

Volume analysis is very difficult to teach in a way that it is easy to understand at least for me

The post you see of mine on the NT forum concerning the ES was back when I was not making money to tell you the truth. I have never made money trading the ES although I do know of several traders that are trading my current method using the same chart inetervals 377,1508 and doing very well. I am now strictly a trader of the 6E

Hi Charles

So just to verify, this system is doing well for you now...but it is pretty new since you've only been trading it a few months on the 6e?

Hi Charles

So just to verify, this system is doing well for you now...but it is pretty new since you've only been trading it a few months on the 6e?

yes this method is fairly new by itself but I have been trading for almost 5 years, just not making enough money doing it.

I have been profitable trading this way every week for over 3 months, 2 months before introducing it to this forum.

Will it work for you just because it works for me, is for you to decide. This method is comprised using several techniques I have learned or bought over the years. No book, trading room, or 3rd party indicators made me money, but the large amount of money I spent on that stuff did in some ways help me learn how and why the market does what it does

Trading can be a very expensive thing to learn to do, it certainly was for me. I have also learned it is very difficult to take someone elses method and copy cat it so it will work for you. This method I trade is a very simple and easy way to trade for me, it could be a nightmare for someone else

What I try to teach in this forum is how I trade, if you see value in it I caution that it is not as easy as setting your charts up like mine and all of a sudden you will turn your screens on tomorrow and make money. It took me over 4 years to finally come up with this method of trading. You are going to have to study your charts, SIM trade the method, follow this thread on an ongoing basis, study your charts some more, SIM trade some more and repeat this until you come comfortable with the method and its nuances.

Welcome to all the new traders who have recently started to follow my thread. A piece of advice, if you have quickly read the 1st few post, got a copy of my trading manual, and then jumped forward to the recent post you have missed a lot of valuable information regarding this method. Advice, you need to go back and start on post #1 and follow this thread through, not doing this is cheating yourself. You dont go to your local bookstore - buy a book and say "Let's skip the first 5 chapters and get to the good stuff" doing so you miss the stories plot - same thing here. Jumping through the thread you will miss the plot, the manual by itself is the basics of the method.

This thread has become very long, it has a lot of information that you need to trade this method successfully, do not cheat your self from it

Can you add this option ?

Here's a version with an audible alert. The toolstrip button toggles the alert on and off.

If you're going to stick with NT, you'd probably find the 2 introduction to programming webinars worth watching, so you can do this sort of thing yourself.

last suggestion

Your videos and material has been most helpful. I only one ONE suggestion that may help us all.

Since you pretty much covered it all so far in the videos, it would be good--very nice-- to see some LIVE TRADE recordings because often times backtesting with video paints a different picture.

You should just record your trades or even record a video using the MARKET REPLAY in this way we can see some of the 377 tickers in action.

Thanks

What is the alert alerting? 1508 Swing highs and lows, or 1508 HH/LL followed by retracement to13ma trade setups?

It has nothing to do with any MA; it's based on the ZigZag creating a new swing.

How about alerting when price goes higher then the last swing high, or lower then the last swing low, since that is the only time you are interested in looking at the 1508. I think that is one of the rules right? No reason to be alerted for lower highs or a higher lows, if my understanding is correct.
