Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

In NinjaTrader you just need to select the Typical Price as input series.

The resulting moving average is a pivot moving average.

Thanks for the advice

so I should plot the PMA based on the 60min or the daily?

also are you on stock twits?

take care

Up to you, it depends on how you want to use it.

Hey FAt Tails,



Should I use the SMA or EMA when attempting to plot the PMAs?

Both is possible, but again, what do you intend to do with it?

Moderator Note


Let's return this thread back to topic of Mark Fisher ACD trading. For any other topics, use appropriate threads.




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.

to guage whether the market is bearish bullish neutral or confused etc


also to make the "fake out" trades mark fisher is referring in his book.


I'm just trying to follow what fisher teaches in his book.

Only problem is the platform I am using won't let me use PMA's so I am not sure how I can use them (maybe run a demo copy of Ninja while im trading with Firetip)

Not to rain on anyone's parade but, in a recent webinar I saw someplace I think it was Traders Exclusive, Fisher admits that he no longer uses the ACD method. He has found that in todays' futures markets the methodology is no longer valid. I think the webinar might be archived. I'm just trying to save you guys hours of learning a method that isn't of use even to it's creator.

Oh great, I just read the whole book.......thinking it is a useful system.


What is so different to todays futures markets compared the 2001 era


Thanks for the heads up though..... I am attempting a manual backtest in excel.


I am assuming that webinar is only available to the "elite" members?
