Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Hi C, Thanks for responding. I'll describe it keeping it simplest, and then with a few add on variables that would be great to test. But if simple is simplest, I can still walk thru. thanks, PAtrick

Hey, I use to live in Decatur, was back for a friend's St Pat's day party. Still freaking 55 degrees in Green Bay.

Buy -
When price CLOSES above anaSuperTrend.StopLine, buy 2 cars long on next tick
Set Target1 at 10 from StopLine. Leave Target2 open. StopLoss is 30 from StopLine for both.
If Target 1 is hit, move StopLoss on 2nd car to Breakeven


Sell is the reverse. Reverses second if not already stopped out.


This would be the minimum, and I could walk thru the results to cull out what does not work.


Extras - variables I'd like to play with:
-- anasupertrend settings - that is straightforward, no programming
-- # of contracts on first group vs. 2nd - that's a variable you would have to add
-- stop loss - that's a variable for you too (adjusting it to something other than stopeven)
-- taking only 8:30 to 15:15 trades (CST) - a little trickier, I guess only signals triggered within regular hours and close at close (I can cull thru that manually on back testing too)
-- and only taking signals in the direction of a ma (Jeff's Universal MA would give about all that I could use) this is least important, have not found it critical in my manuall walk backs, but have not looked at a lot of differnt MA's

I've been using this on 20 range charts and 10 range charts for the ym. It's deceptively simple, and may be too good to be true.But pull it up and you will be surprised. The 20 rang keeps you out of the ym chop.

thanks again.
