There is some confirmation at price S/R levels so I'd say nice day!

made a little on the long side ...


not due to ANYTHING other than a friend saying, "now this thing has the fuel to try 3770 again". So better lucky than good...but I've never been handsome.

So that one piece of analysis that looks like something that nobody talks about had this to say today. Scroll up to see yesterday.

I am looking for my Hopium: I hope next time I see this...lol:

Just caught up on this thread. I could go back and thank each post individually, or I could just drop a quick thank you into the thread. I'm choosing the latter.

Was looking to buy...

after an initial decent sell. But @ignacmostovic said that'd be dumb. I went his way after the sell set up on the 144 tick...the one I'm trying to avoid. I did flip to the 610 view as primary and the "trend trade" re-entry mentioned a few posts up was really nice. These are not reconstructs of every trade...that takes too much time. Just an illustration of the idea, trend trade re-entry.

So here is

the set up trade type "trend trade re-entry" I had an initial sell after almost buying...oops. I added to the initial sell and covered some as I went. Really fun when it works out like today. Let me know if you want to see the sync with 144 tick.

Hey...

@Nientenickgrazie

I am wondering if you would be interested in a project of creating some of these ideas into strategies (I am not yet capable) This is a thread that talked about automatic posting of strategy trades to a thread on futures.io (formerly BMT). I think this might help me learn ways I could improve both the method and my discretion.

So...

something very interesting develops when beginning to try to code basic elements into a strategy. I see that the back test results of how I basically describe one trade type are brutally different than my actual trade results. Today I had my third losing day of the month, -$175. Basic strategy as described to another member (granted, not totally correct or complete) back tested results show month to date -$15,000.

How in the world is that possible? I only take about 30% of the indicated trades. I'm usually seeing a win percentage between 50% and 60%. Seeing the back test results does not build confidence. The likelihood of being lucky over the course of a career is statistically nil. Yet I can not identify why I decline what would be indicated trades. Really interesting and not at all what I expected.

General question...

but I'll take a shot. Hey @NinjaTrader

How do you set up to enter via strategy and utilize ATM to manage exits? So rather than one startegy that buys and sells ...always in the market ala Welles Wilder SAR. Would it be smart to build a buy strat and a sell strat? Then how would you exit those via ATM

When you are looking at the results of a backtest, you can right-click on the trades and show them in a chart. If your indicators are coded to plot as well as just provide output to the strat, then they should plot on the same chart. You can see from the chart where your strat diverged from what you did on your own, and figure out why, hopefully - i.e. you can look at the chart with the indicators on it you would have had in real time, and you can see where and why the strat is trading.

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.
