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.

Ok I found it:

So much for those "secrets" he divulged in his book and so much for his proprietary Ord software. I think his career is pretty much over. Another market timer bites the dust.

How can you use the d9 as a surrogate for the McClellan? That's like me using the temperature as a surrogate for my clock.

It is an oscillator. That's all. But what oscillators tell you is something about turning points and momentum, no matter how they are calculated.

Thanks. ZTrade101. I found a copy on The Secret Science of Price and Volume: Techniques for Spotting Market Trends, Hot Sectors, and the Best Stocks (Wiley Trading) (9780470138984): Tim Ord: Books. My win/loss after a trading day seems to be better when I trade ES by volume charts (1150, 3500). Beats my using tick charts hands down during volatile periods.
This looks like a good read to better my understanding.

Futures Edge on FIO

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

I read the book. I think there are some valuable information and his book got me more into looking at volume. Volume is key and the chapter wind in your back can help you to have a systematic approach to the market. I tweaked and added a few things and breadth indicators I look at and like ztrade101 I used McClellan Osc. for my swing and momentum trading.

Cunparis is right, he is short the market for a long time and I never understood why he wanted to hold on to his position. In his newsletter he uses many classical indicators with his on periods and parameters settings to find reasons why the market should have been short since last year. I always felt he wanted to be right with his short position.

Nevertheless, the book is great and in his newsletter he didn't stick to his approach that he uses in the book. Like I said he really was trying to be right, a great psychological mistake. The McClellan Osc. and other breadth, sentiment, and volume analysis would have given him better timing and he would have been long and short last year.
