High winning percentage a must

Wouldn't putting your stop under the last swing hi/low make for a lopsided R:R ratio?

I've been xperimenting with 8 tick target & 8 tick loss (4/6 for ES).

In my daytrading (not scalping) I would put my stop there but I wouldn't have a target, I'd exit on the first sign of weakness. So one winner would make up for several losses. If I'm scalping for 8 ticks then one loser would take away several winners.

I'm new to scalping so I'm still struggling with this idea.

Cunparis,

Having a R/R of greater than 1:1 can only be justified if your winning % is high.....otherwise it would not be a winning strategy.

Fair enough guys.. I have been messing around with this some this morning with a 9 Range chart for the 6E in dashboard mode and a 2 Range in the back ground and it does seem to help me get a better fill on market replay.. So maybe I will just stick that that for now..

Thanks

HJay,

In your 1209 post what is the blue and red line going down the middle?
For my trading style I seem to like a line that gives me the trend of the
market.

Hey Skid, it as WMAColored(Close,160)

And TomBear I am assuming you mean the red and blue bars. That comes straight from Jeff's template he posted this morning with no changes other than the color shades..

Dashboard

Hey HJay,

Good work on the dashboard concept. I believe that focusing on one liquid market is probably the best idea. But....... having the "anchor" (9 range bar) and the "ES" on the dashboard would be great for confirmation.

Support and Resistance

Cuparis sent me a chart of CL and I couldn't help but notice how knowing where support and resistence is really pays off!

Don't be afraid to extended your lines out! It helps.

You need to download the indicators from the download section. I believe earlier today a few guys had this question. Review the exchange from earlier today and that will get you there.

Jeff,

Since you are getting a lot of repeat questions might I suggest you create a custom Signature (User CP) and maybe link to some of the most vital info from the most frequent questions regarding your thread. You can hyperlink and specific word using the editor so the signature can be compact yet useful.

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

My opinion is that most of the people asking these previously answered questions are those who have not read the thread and are looking for a shortcut. If we just direct them to specific files like indicators and template then they're not going to understand the theory behind it.

When I first played with these indicators I kind of forget the original AYN idea. Jeff has reminded us of that several times and now I'm incorporating that into my trading rules. A few days ago I saw these indicators as an entry signal, now I see them as a confirmation of my intentions to enter. In other words, I'm adding them to my "naked trading" style that I've been using for the past month. So far it seems to be helping me. I really find myself surprised to say that cause I thought I had banished indicators off my charts forever. But in fact once you learn to read price action, you see indicators in a whole new light.

So Jeff - my vote is that you add to your signature "read the whole thread".
