Making sausage

What is it they say about making sausage..... you wouldn't eat it if you saw how they made it. Well..... I afraid that's how today was. It ain't pretty. However,....... a green day is a green day. Up $205 trading a 2 lot. Terrible choppy day. Lack of disciple.... not even following my own signals.... making stuff up..... using the reversal button several times, over trading. You name it I did it. But like they say about airplane landings......any landing you can walk away from is a good one.

I think this is just a tough time of year to trade. After Labor Day will be better I think.

Definately not proud of my performance today.

I finished the morning with +$41. I was doing it seriously. I did the last 90 minutes on sim (morning was sim too) and there was so much chop I decided to play around. I finished -$877!!!! Just goes to show the importance of avoiding chop. and if you want to trade chop, do it on sim.

I'm reading that thread, it's great. Very similar to what we're doing here, but without any indicators. That's pretty cool.

From what I've read so far it seems like my observation about it being better to take trades without immediate overhead S&R is better. I'm still reading though.

Yeah I love the simplicity of the system. I pulled everything off my charts and I just move around s/r lines to set up the trades. The only thing I added back on was OnBalanceVolume to confirm the breakouts. I've been using it on 6J, 6E, 6B and CL on 150 tick charts.

Pullbacks or breakouts ?

Perhaps, it would be worthwhile to discuss pullbacks and breakouts.

Is there a criteria that we can use to determine when it is best to employ these two different tactics?

What are the pros and cons of each?

How far of a pullback is good?

How far of a pullback is too far?

Do we buy/sell a pullback without seeing evidence that the trend is resuming? ( Or are we waiting for the bus to start leaving the station before we decide to get on..... or does this leave too much money on the table?)

If we wait to "jump on the bus once we see it's definately leaving the station" do we run the risk of being too late and running out of gas before we reach our destination? (target)

Can we assess trend strength and therefore increase the probability that our trade will reach our objective? (market breadth, ticks, ADX)

These are questions that I am trying to answer for my self and would be interested to hear what you have found to be true in your trading.

Thanks, Jeff

All you need ES style

Hey cunparis,

I definately think you are right about the 50 ema just being two colors for the ES 4 range bar chart.

I posted one and it seems to clear things up a bit.

50 ema

Hi Milford,

Instead of using the EMA_Colors.........use the ColorSampleUniversalMoving Average.

Hey Blz,

I have heard of people using OnBalanceVolume. Could you give us a screen shot to
show what your talking about and how to use it?

Moving Average Indicator


Hey Milford,

Here you go......who ever programmed this indicator mislabeled the rising/falling colors.
