JW, thanks for sharing your template with us. If I may ask how would I change the horizontal grid lines you have. I mean for example you have 20 ticks on CL and you wanted to move them to 30 ticks how would I do that.

Thanks
Hector

Just right click in the price display area on the chart and then select "Properties", change all you want there.....good luck!!

Tuesday trades

Here are tuesdays trades, market seemed slow today....my programmer was working on getting things installed for me at the open so I got a little late start. It still worked out fine, as you can see I did exit a couple of trades early, in weeks past I would have stopped after the first win, so once I was in the money I still get to where all I want is "Out" with the $$$.

I dont plan on trading live on wednesday but may trade in simm and with the new automation...will try and post those results if it works out..

Off to spend time with the KIDS.....enjoy!

I used your thread and combined strategies for a nice little profitable scalping process. Thought you might be interested. Live tested for 2 weeks and up $4,312 trading 2 contracts. Thanks for the ideas and happy trading!

Market Replay

Hope your Thanksgiving Holiday was nice, I enjoyed the food along with Family!

I did get my laptop back, my first encounter with the automation locked up NT on my desktop and I still havent figured out how to fix it all correctly so I could not trade the strategy in simm until I was able to get it on the laptop.

Here is a screen shot of the trades that it took and I managed once entered, I think I could have entered the trades myself from chart trader if I was focused and ready for the possible up coming trades, but I am working on getting the automated entry so I can relax a little and focus on the risk and best possible profit targets. With the slow markets wednesday and friday I did not trade and just focused on food, Kids and Shopping....

I hope to run Market Replay on my BetterRenko chart along with the 578 tick charts this weekend and could post results form those later. Good trading and I hope you can find the charts that might work for you!

"How To"

Futures Edge on FIO
If you don't know how to or if you are interested in how to modify standard indicators to "do" different things, here is how I go about doing that...

First find the indicator you like working with,then to get it to do different things I change the "input series" so that it calculates off of something different than the price bars..... so for this example, I am considering using the DC indicator as a trailing stop....if I use the price bars it seems too far away and I give back too much profit on the runner, so I changed the input series to base it on the HA candles I watch behind the price bars. The picture will show the setting I used in the market replay I just posted. There are so many different ways to modify the current indicators you already watch to make them smoother, faster or whatever you want....another one I like to change is the ADXVMA indicator you see me use, I like to change that based off the HA candles also, it becomes smoother and closer to price action.

Any comments or additions to this idea please feel free to post so we can all learn...

BetterRenko

This will be the last post this morning, the girls are going to let me go shopping with them again today...its fun watching them shop, amazing how good they can get at finding the "deals"

With the nature of Renko charts I find I need additional filters to limit trade entries, so one thing I am considering on this chart is the use of my ABXVMA line that I like. A great thing with Renko charts is once you get in a good trade it stays good for a while and you can catch some great runners usually the move of the morning....just look at what FatDemon is doing in his thread he posted, catching some great runners!

jdDonchianTraderV102

I just posted in the Elite downloads area a much more involved version of the Donchian Channel Indicator you see me use that also has the quick order entry boxes in the Chart Trader area....

You can search by name " jdDonchianTraderV101 "

There are several inputs that have been added, you will just need to play with it a llitle to see what works for you...My next post I will post a Template with the Plots and Settings you see me using on several of my charts.

Again please use in simm mode until you understand how it places the orders...

Questions please ask....enjoy

Sample Template

Here is a sample template for you to start with, this might get things started on other charts for you until you get used to the different settings that you can change.....

Before you trade live with the boxes....PLEASE use in simm or in Market replay until you are comfortable with how they will work....

Monday 11/26


Here are the 2 trades for monday, after a long weekend and also "cyber monday".....started out OK, then went to chop while I was taking the kids to school......

As you can see on the chart I chose to trade today, the bars started getting real big, not normal for this chart, so I just started watching and waiting for a breakout in any direction to get the chart to start looking normal again, then I would have jumped on the next reversal....

One thing I really like about this chart is the fact that my risk is generally so low, and when it starts trending in a direction I can stay in it and catch a good runner, as you can see also it keeps me from over trading in the choppy big bars where the risk is too high for my 3-6 ticks I usually go for..

Also posted is the 578 chart I like to trade, I might have been able to catch some of the trades later as shown (I did not mark, but you shoude be able to see them)....who knows....
