Howdy.

The question on it's face is really simple.

"Is there a completely OBJECTIVE way to trade that is profitable?"

I mean specifically, OBJECTIVE. In that you can define a setup/pattern that is 100% recognizable, and can be seen without much interpretation, or at the least, interpretation that doesn't leave wiggle room for confusion or doubt?

This doesn't mean it has to be such that it is easy to program or an ATS, but that it is something that can be recognized in real time, without any fiddling or confusion as to the setup being there.

Do you guys have any opinion on what is the MOST objective of the journals you've come across?

I hadn't read that one yet, but I've heard quite a bit about it. I'm currently reading "Perry's" thread. I've also been following the "2+ ES Points" per day thread which I think is similiar to the "my 6E Strategy" thread? And while the "2+ Points" thread is nice and I'm sure the OP does well with it, it is a bit more subjective than I think I would be able to deploy successfully.

Those are great threads and methods . One thing you may consider is developing a method of your own . Start by testing out those methods already mentioned and keep careful notes for yourself pertaining to how well they fit your tolerances and style . Then boil them down to the elements that suit your needs and tastes . Take those elements and apply them in the market . The reason I say this is that its more difficult to adapt to someone elses method than to develop your own according to your own unique style and ability .

Check threads on bots.No bots that I am aware of use fuzzy logic but that does not mean none exists..
