no website or book is going to just tell you their secret sauce (if profitable). which only leaves the likely solution to be you. observe the markets, make a hypothesis, test, and re-test, and then test some more, and then forward test, and probably test some more before you commit real capital.


on another note, there is no such thing as the holy grail. there's a hypothesis out there that you can create random lines on a chart and with proper money management you can be profitable trading those lines.

In trading, shortcuts lead to the longest path possible.

And all the webinars on futures.io (formerly BMT).

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Agree with fminus, there probably is no holy grail. I started of with a promising setup, and have now refined that for a year to a system that i'm really pleased with. If i had started with another setup, would it be better or worse, maybe not. Something to really watch out for is making sure the system performs live as well as it does in backtesting. I found alot of pitfalls there, and i said "now i have it" atleast 10 times before i had it. But that wasn't really your question was it, maybe you've been down that road already.

See if your local library has back issues of popular trading magazines (Futures, TASC, Active Trading - r.i.p). There are literally thousands of ideas there in back issues. Of course, those ideas are just starting points for your own analysis.

Having ideas to test should never be your problem. Finding the time to test those ideas - now that is a different story...

If you have any questions please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

I look at old systems I worked on that don't work anymore, and I figure out why they no longer work. I see the new market patterns and then adapt my old systems to them to see if I can adapt them instead of starting over in the code. Such old systems were never profitable but I always kept them around because they often have elements that I have long since forgotten. The hard part of keeping such systems is organizing and documenting them so you know where to look later on. Nobody wants to document an unprofitable system, but for me it's worth it.

Sometimes I will just look at a new market for patterns foreign to me. I am quite content trading the indexes, though.

I recommend you to sign up for @kevinkdog 's email list. He has webinars such as "My Favorite Entries" or "My Favorite Exits" etc. You'll get great ideas from those. He had a webinar two weeks ago and I was able to create a strategy from one of his ideas the next day.
