looks really good and if your profitable to boot, then stick with what you have. What's your criteria for entering the trade?

jdella...I purposely did not put a chart of my indicators because I did not want it to become a discussion about indicators. The intent of my post was to help keep this thread going and for others to share some of their experiences with money management. I will gladly share my setup in the future. The criteria for entering a trade is a very common setup that is discussed on the boards. All I have done is add a couple of indicators for confirmation of my entry.

Prior today, I always believed that the pot of gold layed with that one indicator I would eventually come across. There are many great strategies, indicators, scalping techniques, but not much discussion regarding money management. I will only say that if as much time and effort was put into money management as what everyone puts into indicator development there would be alot of very wealthy individuals on this board. How do I know???? Today would have been my best day ever had I been live. I am consistently profitable on a daily basis and have been for years. Today, the strategy I worked on, got me a quick pop (on 2 contracts) and then let my winners run on the final 2 contracts.

I am open to some suggestions, criticism, improvements or whatever else you might want to share with me. I will attach a chart with some of the trades, and Excel spreadsheet, ATM Strategy and Stop.

I believe this is an important thread....lets share some ideas and keep this thread active. I am convinced more then ever the pot of gold is right before us, most just fail to realize where this gold lies.

I agree. Over the last 4 or so weeks I've abandoned looking at indicators and building strategies in favor of learning better trade/money management. I currently have a strategy that uses one indicator and it seems to be right about 40% of the time (sim). I wanted something that was wrong more often than right so that I can test some different ideas with regards to managing the trade/money.

I am building an external app that communicates with NT. The app has all the money management logic as well as a UI for setting different settings etc. Nothing mind shattering but eventually I'm planning on using it as a framework to use in conjunction with a strategy.

Things I've played with:

- scaling in/out of a trade
- increasing/decreasing the number of contracts based on strategy performance
- dynamic trailing stops

I still have a lot to learn and a bunch of crazy ideas, so if anyone has any suggestion I would also love to hear them.

Sure I understand completely. I didn't want you to do that either, but was just curious since you said that you have been profitable for years.

Sorry if I'm a bit off-topic, but does someone here have a very basic strategy, which use ATM stuff ?
I just to see how we integrate this, and don't want to reinvent the wheel...

Sam,

I tell you what, you share your EOD robot code, and I will share a complex strategy which uses ATM.

Thanks.
But I think we don't have the same definition of a "very basic strategy" .
