I know there is a thread elsewhere on this topic but since this thread is specifically CCI related, I was wondering if anyone here has incorporated anything outside of B/B or Keltner that is sensitive enough for Short timeframes.. to filter CCI and if so how they are implementing it?
TF trading using CCI method-it works Reload this Page Reply to Thread
I finally had a chance to join in the fun. Yes, I have been trading a cash account for more than 10 years and the only reason I would trade a demo account is after changing brokers and I would need to perfect my trading on the new platform. I now trade on Danials Trading using the DT Pro and use both their charts and TS charts, where I trade options. I also have 3 cash accounts where I trade FX. My CCI + Trading System still works and offers plenty of opportunities to enter trades for winner after winner. I will show some charts and see if you can pick out the winners. I use the extreme price action BB for entries and exits and reversals. But, they do not always present themselves and then the CCI comes into action. I have mentioned that I have added the RSI 7, 50, 50 to my chart and only take a CCI trade if confirmed by either the RSI or the MACD.
I will post 4 charts: 2-Renko charts and 2-6min charts (I never trade the 6 min, these are a reference to compare with the Renko) I will post more later. I did not take but a few of these trade, as that is all the time I was in the market to trade. Live trading and back testing works the same because one must wait until the bar has closed to take the trade setup. The main difference is missing a trade because one uses a limit order or slippage or one's caution using real money. Most trades are successful. I use 3 charts on ES: this Renko, Range Bar, & Tick charts. I will include the Range Bar unmarked so you can check it out. If you understand my system and use all three before taking a trade, you will seldom get a loser. I hope this helps.
P. S. Note the 6 min charts show the vertical lines from the Renko charts, as I copied them.

Using the BBs for trade reversal or trend continuation
Hi ESFX and All ,
you wrote :
"Remember that outer BB usually offers the best entry, but when it rides the outer BB, there is no entry until a retracement and continue back to it. Many of the best trades will never make it to the outer BB and reverse the trend"
Can you explian this Idea with chart example ?
Let's see if i get you right :
on up trend move , price ride the Outer Upper BBs you look for LONG but you don't enter for long until you have
a retracement with long CCI signal like closing bar above 45 , then you take the LONG trade until price will make new high at the upper BBs ? correct
But sometimes after you take this long trade after retracement the price can't make it to the upper BBs and you get reversal to the downside , and price will reverse the trend ? this will be trend reversal ( using maybe divergence )
do i get the Idea right ? correct
just wanted to say thanks for all the information you supplied in the thread.
I was able to pick up quite a few useful things, and it was time well spent going through all the posts, even though some of the postings are not easy to digest first time.
Thanks again and wishing you all always good trades
