Here's my chart from Tuesday. I have a question about where you would put your stop on the last trade.

Also, I ported EMA colors to tradestation but I'm having a problem. I make a 4 range chart with it set to 1 tick and I get more bars on TS than I do on NT so the EMA isn't the same. I can't figure out why the 4 range charts aren't the same. Have you used range charts on TS?

My idea is to mix my current system with yours. Maybe filter out some trades that way. I'm not sure I'm just playing around. But my current system requires TS.

Using a 1600 tick chart would solve that problem so I'm going to look at that as well. It'd let me use my volume indicators. But there's something about range charts that I really like. Seems so simple.

Hey Cunparis,

Looks good but we'll have to check out several days. Yesterday had big moves. Today is more choppy and my trading on the ES 4 range is not positive.

I'm doing some manual backtesting with 4 range and then will take a look at 6 range and 1600 tick.

I have to say that the EMA Colors looks better with the YM than it does the ES. I'm playing around with the angles trying to get it to trend more. I'm currently trying 20 & 70.

I'm curious, if the LBR first cross is a good trade, why don't you use her 3/10 indicator and take the first cross?

LBR First Cross

There's is certainly nothing wrong with focusing on the first cross trade. I've been focusing on price action recently, not oscillator trades. Check out the LBR template for the 6 range ES this morning. That's a pretty sweet first cross.

I do believe you are right are far as the 4 range bar with the "All You Need" template goes....... better with the YM.

Hi Jeff, what kind of bands are those around price? Or is it an envelope?

bands

Hi Deltason,

Those are Keltner bands. However, they are not regular keltner bands. they are based on Linda Rashke 20 EMA instead of the regular SMA. You can accomplish this by changing the moving average type in the script for the indicator. The parameters are.... 2.5 for the multiplier and the period is 20.

Jeff - you know a lot about LBR. Would you recommend her trading room?

Here's my ES chart. 3 trades, 1 winner and two losers. Finished negative today. Not surprising cause the market was really choppy from 10:30 on. I see a few good trades that were missed cause the EMA colors has too many gray colors with ES. I'm not sure there is anything we can do. So I need something else to show momentum, that or just trade YM.

I put a few oscillators on my chart but I don't see how they could show the chop. Any ideas how to avoid this?

I'm going to go over the YM results for today and see if it's better.

Also my backtesting is showing that 2 targets of 4 & 8 ticks is not optimal. It's better to just do 8 ticks. I think 4 is cutting the winners too short.

EDIT: After posting this I studied it more closely and I see more clearly now. Trade #2 was good despite bearish divergence on the momentum indicator. The 2nd trade I even wrote a text saying I wouldn't take that with real money cause of the bearish divergence. I didn't notice it but the 3rd trade also had bearish divergence and one could have skipped that one too. The 4th trade didn't have any bearish divergence on the entry, it looked good. But on the second high it made a double top with bearish divergence and that could have been a good sign to get out at breakeven.

So I think I'll pay more attention to divergences..

Lbr


Yes, I've attended many LBR webinars etc. and I just completed a month in the trading room. But..... I have to say that there were not many profitable trades called it the room. I don't know if Chris (room Moderator) was having a slump or what. There were a couple Russell traders ( racerx and alavek) that made some good calls. But, maybe it was just the summer doldrums. That said, I still learned a lot. The website is full information and Linda is an awesome educator. So..... bottomline.... you can get her basic set ups and charts for free by just searching the internet. She incorporates Crabel and Taylor in some of her set ups also.

Here's a chart with LBR type set ups. On the 6 range bar ES. I was using 3 ticks for my first target and 6 ticks for my second, no runner.
