It certainly depends on how "accurately" someone is able to code a Volman-like trading strategy into tradestation. Even very minor deviatons have the potential to produce markedly different results.

I wrote him myself recently and asked whether he was a discretionary or a system trader and he said he only trades on a discretionary basis.

Absolutely!

I use similar (discretionary) methods in crude oil futures. I don't see why implementing one or two of Volman's methods should not work for you. You have to realize that type of strategy pans out over the long term: individual wins or losses don't matter much. What matters is the cumulative effect over time and this cannot be measured in terms of a small number of trades. You will only see the results coming to fruition after many trades. As long as you are accepting of that, it is a perfectly valid way to trade. It is in fact the way that I trade.

What size chart did you use for crude?

I use a 30minute bar chart and a 2000 volume chart. I use those to get an idea of recent volatility and to know where general areas of price congestion are.

For placing trades I refer more to the price behavior on the electronic ticker.

Maybe the local library? There is one chapter (excerpt) online for free - you'd have to google for it

I recently picked up the book:

"Forex Price Action Scalping: an in-depth look into the field of professional scalping"

by Bob Volman.


I'm curious - is there anyone out there using his approach with success (or without success)?


Thanks

I don't get it

What's not to get? I am always looking for new methods, new techniques, new systems, and new ways to improve my trading. That's one reason why I am up at 5 AM in the morning - research & development takes up more of my time now than actual trading of my existing systems.

In my experience, complacency in trading will get you run over.

I hope this explains my interest in Volman.

Hello kevinkdog,

I bought the book and received it last week, I am at mid way exploring the range break setup. So far i like it. It is very similar to Lance Beggs approach in some aspects. However Beggs has less setups (only three) goes much deeper in his explanation and there are more scenarios to study which can make a difference as learning from a book is quite a noteworthy achievement. I'd like to ask you, did you test his setups on a chart with similar settings (70t per bar) and did you try to test other instruments?
