Does anyone know what family of instruments does his study includes within the Futures asset class? Financials/Rates? Commodities?

Many thanks

I dont know, but have the same question.
He says somewhere: ~"All of the most liquid US Futures"

I assume this includes Index Futures,Commodities, Financials.

I would think - Index Futures separate - should look more like his Stock column.
(this statement might be wrong if the overnight mkt has a bigger impact - I dont know)

Good course


Im begun the free course.
He take more time for each thing, chart, lines, indicator, candle, fibo, etc, etc.
Also I susbcribe trial time is his newsletter.
For me the critical point was " No one guru, chart analysys, system, indicator, etc... can made you profitable"

Thank you Adam and Mike for providing this very valuable content.

I really liked the concept that "a lot of the market movements are random". I know that my first inclination is always try to make sense of a certain price movement.

There were many other concepts that resonated with me and that I need to dive deeper into them.

The last thing is that, more and more I am pleasantly surprised that, the BEST trading material available is usually Free, or extremely affordable. I wish I knew this 3 years ago

Again, Thanks again for Sharing

Hector

Thanks

Thanks @BigMike for sending the email suggestion. Great webinar.

I really liked how he stressed the randomness of the market.

The "S/R zones" are definitely the most subjective part on discretionary trading, the pattern is clear the zone is not.

I have not read and don't mean to investigate on Fibonacci ratios, it just never made any sense to me to have a golden ratio or magic PHI number.

Nice Pullback strategy, I guess I probably have something similar with a Momentum trigger and a "trend filter".

Are the Markets Random?

Well let me share with you, if I recall there was a point in the presentation when Adam said you can draw any line on a chart and it can be significant for some reason. So I decided to do a few tests. I took several charts of my favorite instrument, the TF, in different time frames (I use NinjaTrader). I closed the charts as tightly as I could to only see three bars then drew between three and five random lines/rays, then expanded the charts. Holy moly! If I were a true support and resistance trader, I could have traded off of my random lines! There were more than a few instances where the market actually tested and retested my random lines. That really gave me some insight into the market.

Try it, and draw your own conclusions. In fairness I will continue to be aware of S/R as determined by the markets because I know that's what other traders are following.

My purpose was just to share something I found very interesting. I am certainly no guru, I am very successful in making money in futures (unfortunately, I am just as successful giving it back because I don't know when to quit!

Random Walk Generator as Data Feed

Regarding randomnes and random walk in particular - do you guys know if there is any (real) random walk generator that could be used as data feed (eg. for NinjaTrader). And I am not talking about Simulated Feed with a slider but a true random walk - it would be interesting to experiment with.

Thanks Mike, I guess it is harder and harder to be original in the realm of ideas
