OK here are two screen shots during my morning trade. I will go over my thinking for the entry in the video I will post later. You will see I moved PT2 up quite a bit trying to catch a runner, I almost hit the close button when I saw 2.5 points but I resisted.....just moved my stop up to 6 ticks......

I have some run around, lunch with kids, and then I will get to the video.....do you think they are worth the effort? Anything to make them better?

JWD,

Thanks for the post. I definitely think the videos are worth it if they don't take up too much of your time. I think that's the only way to get your full thought process. It's too hard via text unless you want to write a book for every entry.

Thanks

Tuesdays Video

Here is the morning trade I got off, I need to set a timer so I know when to stop the video....lost about the last 3 min.....but this works.

Also when I get back I am going to post a video of my 6E charts and go over them a little for rptrader, just to show that you should be able to find a combination of charts to trade about anything....

Questions....enjoy

6E video


OK here is a video for you to look at , this is only showing the possibilities for trading other markets with rules close to what I use for the ES. I don't want this to really become a 6E thread at this point, I want to focus on the ES......but.....with some time on your part, I believe you can find charts for any liquid market. Remember screen time, and time of day will be important for any market you want to trade....

But any questions yo have for finding charts for any market are welcome, but trading advice for those markets would be limited on my part....

Enjoy

Your right, I think when you are looking at charts with fewer bars, like the Rinko or P&F its easy to see divergence with MACD, Stoch.....

The only thing I had a hard time doing is trading it real time, tried for years it seemed, but a few rules could make a great system.

Thanks for the comment!

Subbed along for the ride!

I have a few points of confusion? Are there essentially two scenarios we look for?

The first scenario being that we observe a trend change, and we are looking to get in right as the trend change occurs, within a few bars on the long term chart. In this case we look to get in at the midDonch channel on the 350tic chart.

The second scenario being that we observe a trend change, and price moves "Too Far, Too Fast"...... at this point, we no longer look at the mid channel of the 350 tic chart. But the bigger PB of the midDonch on the LT chart.

Generally confused on where you are entering?

Is the above correct?

Good question, Yes.....From the videos I am trying to show you my line of thinking, and you are correct.....I guess it is really 2 enries but they are both based on the price action at the time you are looking at an entry.....hope that helps.....
