Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

These dots does that factor in?

Futures Edge on FIO

What happens to the S&P 500 when a new President takes office?

I am not exactly sure how the dots work, but if the dots form at the close of the bar then the third entry is not quite as attractive. Have you considered filtering out large deviations or adjusting the profit and breakeven points? I quickly overlayed a 20 period bollinger on your chart and it seemed to work ok. Just a thought.

If some of you are still interested in a Sling Shot strategy, I just posted one created by Roonius.

I was wondering if a knowledgeable programmer could implement a strategy for me?

It is very simple.

We use the 20 ema and 50 ema for trade direction. THIS IS NOT AN EMA CROSS STRATEGY. If the 20 ema is above the 50 ema then only long trades are taken. If the 20 ema is below the 50 ema then only short trades are taken. Trades are then entered WHEN the 8 ema fires a "Jeff Dot" NOT when the bar closes.

From what I understand.....because of ninja limitations a strategy that enters before bar close will not be able to be back tested......this is ok. I just want it to work in real time.

I'd also like to be able to control what time of day the strategy is in operation.

Today this strategy would have had 4 winners and 1 loser.

How this strategy working out for you?
