I temporarily removed the attachment. I am thinking JeffsDots is supposed to be VIP only, based on:

https://futures.io/free_downloads/vip_elite_circle/394-download.html

Perhaps Jeff can clarify, or I will just upload it to Downloads section in a second.

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.

Hey Askinfo,

I posted my template (JeffsTemplate) in the Elite Circle. I opened a thread called JeffsTemplate.

Looks nice and simple. Is there a ruleset posted on how signals are to be taken based on this template?
Thanks

I haven't posted a list of rules........as such. If I did it would be a long list ! lol

But a few basics......only trade during the best times of the day to trade. That means knowing when NOT to trade. That would be right at the open (let it trade around 8-10 min) and close (last 15 min).....during lunch and if you trade the indexes don't trade when the bond market is closing as this has an adverse affect on the indexes. See post #355 and #356. This is just my opinion.......you can trade when ever you want. But......I like to trade when there is maximum participation.

I like to focus on continuation trades......that is buying or selling pullbacks within a trend. If you are a countertrend trader you will not like my approach. I identify a trend by the 20 ema being either above or below the 50 ema and trade accordingly. I identify pullbacks using a faster ema (8) and lately have found the 6 CCI useful.

A glance at the ADX (being over 15) and moving up is good with a decent amount of volume.

Of course trade management and psychology...........

That's it. Have a daily goal and loss limit. Then spent about 10,000 hours watching the market move........by then you'll be an awesome trader !

Jeff,

I'm trying to determine your criteria for the 4th CL trade... the 6cci didn't touch or go below the zero line, just approached & reversed; price action didn't get very close to the slingshot... did you enter based on the previous candle touching but not breaking the MA, and set the entry point a tick or so above the previous candle?

Thanks...

Hey Dragonet,

There is an area where a trader has to use discretion. The best and most conservative pullbacks are those where the 6 CCI breaks the zeroline then returns to it.......however I knew that the market wanted to fill the gap and although the pullback was not ideal.....it wasn't bad so I went for it.....you'll notice that there was some "positive" slippage on that trade as my targets were "slammed" and my fills were in excess of my targets. Also, when the market is trending strongly the pullbacks will be shallower......the 6 cci will approach the zeroline but not break it.......as long as it gets close......I'll consider the trade.

Jeff
