Hi Steve,

At the end of January I had been trading CL exclusively for nearly 3 months and had broken even. So.......since this was clearly not sustainable I decided to go back to trading YM and make some money ! LOL

I still like the potential that I see in CL but for now I'm giving it a rest. Last week I started simming CL again with good results so I may give it another shot if the simming continues to go well.

As far as the 30 range bar for CL.....that was more of an anchor......I've found that the 20 range bar is better for trading. Also......I've been focusing on "early entry" rather than wait for the break outs ala Joe Ross.

Good Trading, Jeff

I very much agree. Nice to see this thread active again, looking forward to more

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.

AYN on Sierra

I'm inspired to consider this attached 5Minute 6E AYN setup on SierraChart. I'll use Volume Breakdown and 8EMA for signal entries.

It is a SierraChart study (or indicator) which is based on BidVolume, AskVolume and a Triangular MA. It is very much the same as the stuff here .

Hey Jeff,... Very good to see you back... You would happen to have a template with the green/red dots that show up on the 8ema? Thanks
