Everyone is killing 'it'. Just depends on what 'it' is. To some it is their account, others their mental stability, their confidence, packs of cigarettes, and then there are those who are helping them kill 'it' by being on the other sides of those trades.


I try to help other traders by not giving them my advice....

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

What is the reasoning for the exit at 13064 (~11:45ish on your chart)? I'm not familiar with WCCI, so please excuse my ignorance.

Thanks,

Thanks

And, yes..I actually do trade using wcci, i think its reliable.

I have read alot of post in this room and havent come accross anyone who is killing it yet. So find me someone who is and i will follow their technique and trash wcci.

Hows aligator doing w his trading? Full time occupation?

The man himself switched to price action and does not trade the indicator anymore, not at least as the original WCCI.

Yes, full time.

btw, what are your entries based on?

The WCCI = regular CCI, with Ken Wood's ("Woodie" of WoodiesCCIclub) filters added.

Typical Price = (H+L+C/3)

CCI= Typical Price - SMA(TypicalPrice,Period)/ (Typical Price -SMA(TypicalPrice,Period)*.015)

The WCCI is a graphical representation of the relationship between Price and a Moving average of price, "Normalized" to produce an oscillator with boundries.

That is why movement of the WCCI is correlated with Price-Moving Average movement.

Note the similarities



Trading the WCCI is very close to trading Price Action

Correct. Your conclusion applies to almost any momentum oscillator. We don't need no stinky indicators (unless you have a leading indicator, as he used to claim - funny, he still does)

His claim is a matter of perspective.

By dividing the Mean by .015*Mean forces the CCI to return to neutral territory from overbought or oversold before price falls or rises.

You could view that as the CCI "leading" price ... but then again .... you could view that as the CCI overreacting and getting you out of a position too early ....
