as we only have about 7 weeks till school starts -instead of charting calls i need to shift my focus back to trader F16-i hope we showed something fresh and new and how to beat the algorithums at there own game with out some fancy program -

and remember the lower the tick or min chart you use the lesser the risk and the lesser the time in the trade-

and the higher the chart the higher the risk and the higher your time is at risk

keep your time in the market as positive as possible and trust the break and get out as there are a million more coming for you to climb to your million

my wife (NYstateof mind )and i went through my post since june 4th till last friday july 13th to see how many points were called correctly -

as best we could calculate from june4th to july5th = 73points or $3650 using 1 contract

july6th till july13th =52 points or $2600 using 1 contract

for a total since june 4th to july 13th =$6250 using only 1 contract per trade -

i will be focusing on trader F16-till around sept 10th now and will most like just report end of day results with -hopefully simplified entry and exit points and a ladder shot -

A few questions, thinkorswim wont allow a trader to draw trend lines past price action using a tick chart, so you extend lines as needed, correct?

Also do you use a preset profit target when you scalping or do you trade to lines for you support resistance?

CreekBoy are you in a live account or Sim(demo)

yes all lines are extended when playing tick charts -

this system is different from what everyone else teaches - we know our RISK -which is a max of 7 ticks or we do not enter the trade -most times 4 to 5 tick risk is available -we do not chase trades we miss unless we get a great pull back-

as for profit -its what ever the system will allow -if you read all the we back to june 4th -there was and over night trade that grabbed 27 points for a max and others that only grab a tick -its all in the move of the market -we trade the risk and the reward takes care of itself -we long stay long till the trendline breaks -

when short stay short till the trendline breaks -

that was yesturdays pattern

Sorry for being so obtuse... but what does that mean? Are you using a 199 and 167 sma? What in the world are richmond numbers? I would like to understand what you're doing here, but so far, it eludes me. Thanks.

@creekboy

your 2 moving averages are not used for entries or exits they are just used to draw trendlines correct? Im trying to catch up with you and how you use your method

thats correct floating trendlines - the entry /exit is on the break -only when the a&d lines up and a max 7 ticks risk

you only use 2 days worth of trend lines correct?

enter when price cross trendline then do you exit if it breaks back thru trendline or stay in trade till first trendline cross?

the stop is 1 tick outside high or low -the exit may be flat or above depending when the trend changes -in chop it will be many short wins or losses -

Can you show me where the active trend line(dashed) started from?

also describe how you use the 50% of the two ma to define the middle point after the ma cross

Im trying to get details exact because my dashed trendline wasnt where yours is the this chart

Can you show me where the active trend line(dashed) started from?

also describe how you use the 50% of the two ma to define the middle point after the ma cross

Im trying to get details exact because my dashed trendline wasnt where yours is the this chart

I understand this, I have read threads, and from my understanding after cross you find high or low of price action and at this point you find 50% between the 2 ma and this is your center from the trendline(beginning of trendline is at cross) but mine isnt matching up. I appreciate your time and showing your method,

Look in your private messages here on BigMikes I am sending you info
