Since you can not predict the future and the big moves do happen -in both directions - if you play both sides what are the odds you will be on the right side when the big one hits...It really does take some/maybe all of the anxiety out of it for me. I will be net long for awhile and see what happens... Green Rat

I have to admit I really didn't understand the concept of trading one side. I have setups that I look for (based on price) and I take them. Long or short. On some days I make more from the long side and some days more from the short side. But overall I'm profitable each day. If I only traded one side I'd have winning days and loosing days. And I'd make half as much.

Yes...... the concept of playing for one team is great!! I always had a propensity for the short side and viewed it as a weakness that had to be corrected. Now..... maybe not. Although, if you could play for both teams that would be the best..... but some say it can't be done. We'll see. Chameleon RAT !!!!

yeah I need to... just mixing with the Rats... I was able to get the TRO indicator with (1) period working (appreciate that), I do think I like it better against a Range Chart like you have it Jeff. This looks promising...

2. Trade like a mercenary guerrilla. We must fight on the winning side and be willing to change sides readily when one side has gained the upper hand.

I think that picking a side has a lot to do with the instrument you are trading. I would trade ES long and ZN short if I were trading the rat setup.

Another thought


Trading ........ like you're on a football team.... offense or defense ( specialist approach)
OR
like you're Mickey Mantle ( baseball)..... switch hitter (hitting from both sides of the plate...long and short)
