20% / month

The claims on the pro on line trader site do not seem out of line to me.

If you have a $10,000.00 dollar account and you get +10 ticks in CL with one contract that's $100.00.If you do that for the 20 trading days in a month that's $2000.00 or 20%. One trade a day.....one contract....everyday.

Lets take a look at his screenshot on that day... Looks like you could do this on your own without spending the money.

Dragon, if you look at the rest of the screenhosts (click on month names) you will see that the idea is a bit different. Is not based on breakout from sma or after long bars. Long bars just happen. As i can see their system, there is an average day range, or a posible trading range, calculated for current day. There are some buy and sell limits. If price reach that limit, system enters. Not sure about exit, looks like fixed targets with a 3 points stop loss.

Sam, it looks like the way they calculate S/R keeps you out of choppy days, or at least days when market trade in a narrow range. What i want to know is how that ADR is calculated, so i can make some backtests myself without paying $1500 .

What is ORB btw?! I know the rest.

Omaron,
I took a look at the October and September trades. He showed all the winning, losing days, and no entry days. Hats off there for allowing us to see all the setups. Do you think the system enters when it crosses the 16 line? Kinda reminds me of the new futures.io (formerly BMT) envelopes. I think you could develop a very similar system with that indicator. If you donate to the forum you can check it out in the Elite section... It's a brand new indicator that works very well imo.

I added it to the acronym expansion, so now when you mouse over ORB it will show. I add them here and there as I remember to do so

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)

Omaron,
Do you think the system enters when it crosses the 16 line?

I think it enters as soon as the first line is hit (ADR line), either up or down. It does not enter for a close below the line, enters as soon as trigger price is hit. It seems t bealso a time based entry. The entry is only valid if it happens from market open (9:30) and upt to 12:00

16 looks like is the first target. Stop loss is always 12 ticks (3 points) and exit is a bit weird. There are moves where the 32 line is hit but chart say break even or even a loss. I think the exit strategy sucks or i am missing something. I do not see any traces of trailing from what i see in charts.

What is weird though, is that i can see many places (forums) were mq4 files for ADR indicators are posted (various formulas), but nothing translated to NT
