Hopefully this week Mike. Fingers are crossed! After 7 months the power to the tower has been connected. Local politics....

Mea: attaching a full zip export so you can see Cory's rolling pivots which is partially based on an old FibBands indicator version and the zip file will include all other indicators referenced by Cory's. Remember that when using the VWAP in this indicator it starts at midnight; no way to change it (yet).

If it doesn't work right, let me know; might be because of changes made after the version Cory is using. It's working fine on my computer so hopefully this export will also work fine on yours.



hello Cclsys
sorry for the long delay in my response, I tried to import the file, but impossible, he said, "program error"
voila c'etait to inform you, as I have said
thank you and good luck

Jan 27

Early am session. Contract has rolled over on my long-term charts but April Gold has less volume than February.

One trade, a PVP-R (retrace to PVP level). Market in overall TR, up around the VAt level with plenty of room below; prepared to put on a #2 beneath the current RH/DH. 5 ticks heat, then PT hit and more if held. Not doing anything else because liquidity so poor. Maybe will pick up as day-session unfolds.

Re internet:

first, when I moved here I was informed by the telcom here that within six months I would have broadband access via the fiber optic cable that is not 50 yards from my house. This was a lie. There were never any plans to do this, but they didn't want to announce this so instead prevaricated.

Second, I was not planning to trade when I moved here although I checked into highspeed access with that in mind as a Plan B.

But now that there is highspeed and I am trading, if it continues to be dysfunctional after a month or so, then I will have to move clearly.

Cory, I think your rolling indy would be good in the downloads section, probably VIP. Just a suggestion.

Mea, sorry that didn't work. But: you can get Cory's rolling indicator somewhere on this thread a few pages back. And you can get my CCLBands from the VIP downloads. And also the Dvalue with dynamic PVP on the main downloads section here. Each of them works fine. Then have fun with them.

Connection back and mainly good but a sudden loss today in the am. So goofed off basically, downloading things (documentaries about Josephine Baker with old footage), testing the connection and trading in SIM quite playfully. Only a few multiples (which are illegal for my size account), mainly singles and doubles.

SS results attached but none of them count in the 'official' record.

73.77% profitable. Net $2128.00. But meaningless really although I was using the time to clarify rules a bit more in trading plan which has been stalled of late although I do think of it every day and every night before going to sleep. Hope to have time this weekend to start finalising it. This connection is good when it works. If it occasionally goes out, I will have dialup backup connection. Since all positions always have bracket exits, although inconvenient it is not the end of the world if a connection is lost for a minute or so, although of course I would greatly prefer it not be the case!

Jan 29

On chart today the 'official' trades are between the vertical lines. Earlier on was in 'play/study' mode, also after DPT reached.

Trade#1 with the trend but after negative skew flip. Late entry after a little price confirmation but immediately turned around and
Trade#2 pattern reversal on failure of buy signal and with expectation of return to vwap area lower down. Recovered loss from first trade. Exited early at vwap because of volume support and hesitation in mkt. If held, much more possible.
Trade #3: tight trail stop to prevent going back in red and also because of strong vol support.
Trade #4: entered after strong vol support broken at that price (i.e. re-entered #3 essentially), PT almost hit and then a fast bounce took out +4 trailx. DONE.

Mentally still a little scattered. Have been going to town getting new (old) car ready for driving more in past 10 days than I usually do in several months; also new highspeed connection in and out and getting used to having it (watching video clips at night before bed, downloading stuff etc., a new toy). I think I have clarified my rules now, but also have realised that the entry rules are really not so important per se and have to work on developing ways to create rules that I can grade, follow and change that have more to do with following discipline etc. Hopefully over the weekend will get working first draft of trading plan and soon thereafter can go back to REAL trading.

At same time, it's buddhist New Year on Feb 15 and I often just stop everything the last 10 days of 'old' year and might do that this year in the sense of starting the REAL campaign in the New Year. Once the car is fixed and the connection stable for at least 3 days will consider this further. Right now neither is the case, today is Friday, connection is only 2 days old in new antenna location so still too many variables jiggling around.

Have noticed that in SS my average MFE is 15 ticks which is the default PT in the DOM. Clearly I have to work on letting profits run more. This is probably the single greatest weakness in my trading. Still have a tendency to expand stops (take on a double at a better price from initial entry) which expands risk without corresponding expansion of PT's. Lack of patience and confidence. But also even though in SIM I know that in REAL I personally do not like to let a winner turn into a loser and plan to be more aggressive with moving stops to BE+ than I was before, intend to have generally tighter stops and take smaller losses than before, and also intend to let a few more run longer than feels comfortable in order to get larger PT's from time to time.

Early start. Volume sufficient. Trading Plan not ready, still in SIM. Am having a total block with the trading plan. Hope to work through it this week. Connection seems stable finally, but need to give it a few more days to be sure.

Several trades well described in the SS. Basic SR's, SR-R and suchlike. Small profits taken, one 4 tick loss, net 3.4% / $172.00 in about an hour.
