Welcome to

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.

Just for clarification: Is this the way you set it up?

Thanks for sharing!

Yes that is correct. Also put up the same moving average with 0 displacement. That way you can see when the crosses occur. You don't necessarily have to trade the crosses. You can use the crosses to tell you when the trend has changed and wait for retraces to get in. I've looked at that but have not studied it extensively.

I should also say that over all the back testing (2+ years) AND forward testing (6+ months), trading like that is a ~40% win rate and can take some pretty ugly losses. I use a 31 tick stop loss. So, you have to be able to weather the storm in order to overcome the draw downs. However, because this is a stop and reverse system, you get the big moves along with some disappointing trades where you see nice profit only for it to reverse to take most of it of even turn it into a loss. That begs the question, "why not implement a trailing stop?" Overall that just doesn't help profit at all. In fact, everything I've tried has caused profit to suffer significantly without helping the equity curve.
