A few thoughts...


I can give some insight into scalping the ES generically, this is the space that I play in. If you are talking about scalping, then you are ultimately talking about using limit orders. Limit orders are commonly thought of as a way to protect your price position and break even on your entry, (So your not immediately down 1 tick or more). But the problem is that limit orders will more times than not only fill you if the price moves passed your position (Toxic Fill).

So one area of research that you may need to add to your training would be optimizing your limit order fills, so you are not immediately down 1 tick on the entry of every trade. Being down 1 tick immediately in and of itself may not be detrimental, but often times the very force that fills you also drags you down 2 - 3 ticks straight to your stop loss.

A lot of people have theories about which way the market will move..... T.A, Order Flow, Level 2 predictions, etc. Are any of these able to predict the market? Who is to say.... But even if they were good for 1 to 2 ticks and could be beat the betting line, if you start every trade with a toxic fill then your best case scenario will most likely be just to break even after paying commissions even with making 1 to 2 ticks on your directional prediction.

The point is, that there is quite a bit more to scalping than just predicting price movement. You will need to optimize your order position as well.

I can't offer you much in the way of education / mentoring, but I can share this as a starting point just to get you thinking.

Algo trading also helps, and co-locating also helps as well. In the scalping space these are the tools that you really need in my opinion. If you are going for 5 to 10 ticks, then you can likely trade manually, but if you are trying to capture the spread and do this manually..... This will be quite difficult. Maybe some others that do this manually could point you in the right direction, but I can't conceive of being fast enough myself personally to scalp the ES manually.

Best of luck!

Ian

In the analytical world there is no such thing as art, there is only the science you know and the science you don't know. Characterizing the science you don't know as "art" is a fools game.

Why have you chosen Fibonacci specifically over any other random tool?

The best one IMHO for Fibonacci Trading would be Joe DiNapoli. Do a google search for him.... Amazon and YouTube too.

Scalping for 1 or 2 ticks IMHO is ridiculous. Given enough quality screen time and quality training in this field from good sources (like Joe above, among others) one can learn to capture many more ticks than this....But you have to have the requirements for this business to make it. The resources. Create a network..... nobody makes it in this business completely alone.

You can also check out John Netto's (a student of Joe) book, One Shot One Kill, to learn about Fibonacci Trading.

For scalping you probably want to learn the Footprint. Get a good one and practice on that. Anyone other than Valtos. He steals people's money. Many posts about him taking the money and not registering PCs. Any other one would work just fine. But learn on a footprint it'll help your scalp game.

@broken8

All price drawing tools and indicators are based off of past price action. In my opinion, it would be best to learn how prices moves. Everyone gets caught up on indicators and drawing tools and misses the undelying price action. Indicators are based off price. Scalping is just day trading, in and out. So it's best to have a strategy, and use fib in conjunction with your strategy. There is really not much a course can teach you, fib is pretty basic in my opinion.

All price drawing tools and indicators are based off of past price action. In my opinion, it would be best to learn how prices moves. Everyone gets caught up on indicators and drawing tools and misses the underlying price action. Indicators are based off price. Scalping is just day trading, in and out. So it's best to have a strategy, and use fib in conjunction with your strategy. There is really not much a course can teach you, fib is pretty basic in my opinion.

Here is an example of what I am talking about, I stopped myself out on my last contract, tightened it up too much.

Use your fib in conjunction with your strategy.

What a lot of traders miss in double bottoms or 2b's(double bottom with a flush) is the two wave within the 2nd leg. There's a strategy for you with your fib retracement. Double bottoms don't only happen at the end of downtrends, and some would call that a two wave(momentum was weaker compared to the previous push that's what helped the trade).

If momo was as strong(the same) or stronger you could have seen 100%, 123.6, or 138.20. Since momo was weaker it found support at channel support, and at 61.8 extension, it also could have been 76.4 too if it were are little stronger. The trade is in the eye of the beholder. Teamtc247's mentor tip for the day, wasn't a one liner. Stick with price.

With respect and in a spirit of helpfulness to @broken8......I beg to deffer with @teamtc247 regarding the last sentence just above.

Perhaps on the surface Fibs seem like no big deal or straightforward but I think there is much more behind the curtain. That being said I really don't use them myself other than 50% retracements as I have a system of levels I create.

I would do a search for Fibonacci Queen in-addition to DiNapoli (Joe began trading in 1967 and is still) as I mentioned earlier.

I am fully aware Fibs have a bad name in many circles...mostly due to the erroneous application from novices.

I have studied them... in the end one has to use that which speaks to you.

It's all good, Ron, we all have different view points.

Most people teaching fib will be pushing Elliot Wave or Harmonic trading patterns.

I have taken a fib course, that's why I made that statement. If you have zero concept of fib, a course would give you the info.

Drawing a retracement from a high to low or a low to a high is not super challenging, or drawing a projection isn't super challenging either. Fibonacci clusters are when they intersect, so I am unsure how much more complicated you think it can be.

Fib, in my opinion, is just an added pro or con, like indicators, that's all they are. Scrape away all the drawing tools and indicators and what do you have? Price. What are indicators formulated off of, price? The only forward indicator, in my opinion, is price, the volume will help, but by the time you see the volume, the price has moved.

We all trade differently. In the spirit of helping @broken8, my intention was for him not to get caught up on years of indicators and drawing tools and miss the underlying price action.
