Creekboy,

Thanks for all the content you're sharing. I've read all the posts from beginning of the thread, and trying to understand all that you're sharing here. I don't quite get the connection on all the numerical connections you state and the relevance to particular markets you're discussing at the time, like the # of the day within the year, etc. and the number of day left in the year. or how in your first post you came up with this as the number for the MA's you're using. It seems a bit random to me, but if it works, it's great. I'd like to know what the correlation is . . .
does it seem random to you? it be great if you can expand on it.

I must say this is a different look at trading the markets. It's fascinating, especially if it makes money. You really should do a webinar on your methodology. I'd be surprised if there wouldn't be others interested to engage in a live interaction . . . What do you think?

Thanks again,

John

john2000 - thankyou for your comments and i am glad you are enjoying this thread -

as for webinars -i am computer stupid so to speak -i was not kidding when i just was taught how to do screen pics -and dont know about the difficulty in putting a webinar together -or if it would be any better than what is being shared here-

as for numbers -there are so many ways to watch markets move -these patterns were all set prior to the computer age - i use what i call Country Boy Math -

here is a CBM -# from yesturday 1102.77 now look at the 1102 est candle on the es -

note that it dropped 7 ticks to set the trigger went up 7 points to the 10 area fell back to the 1102 candle then proceeded a slow climb to 21 area over night .note the 10 --and 21 are hidden in the # .

to me its easier to pick 2 ma's and do what is shown in all the past post -to get new traders in the correct direction with known risk before they enter -

its the risk that is always the unknow for most traders -and with this system -if used properly they will trade with more confidence over time -




please note chart 1 and 2 are the same trend line from 2 days ago -down in the 1280 area -

i call this coming to visit and old friend


i guess my bottom line is -there are more than fancy computer systems out there that work for fresh minds -these setup can help verify any trading system as a backup for your entry -

i run 2 charts through out the day -1 with the 565/1400 and the 30/150 and the 2nd with just the 30/150 -

this helps me seperate long term and intraday -

i hope some of this babble has helped answer your concerns

this is for john2000

today is june 7th the 159 th day of the year with 207 to follow (leap year)

note the item #1 on the chart 6:59 time line held 19 as support and is sitting nicely on the 150 ma ---now if i add----1+5+9+2+0+7=29 -

29 is also in the number

notice how it stopped short

these are just references i have leaarned to check over time -

random ? maybe than again maybe not

if we take 207 - 159 = 48

take the 1263 area and add 48 =we have the 1311 pivot from yesturday also

just different ways to see numbers
