I'm naturally drawn to MA and KISS methods... love it
the frequency at which you post is ample and abundant.
keep em coming

I have approximate answers, possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty of different things. But I'm not absolutely sure of anything and there are many things i don't know anything about.

1 of the reasons we can post like we do is that -when you feel you are on the right side of the trade it frees your mind to do other things-thanks for the comments

here is a simple test today close 1357( +- )
I took 35 and 137 for my ma's on a 333 tick chart -anyone that is reading this can match it up on your own charts -

remember we only use a 7 tick risk so all turns may not work and you will miss some trades

so when you get your chart set up -mark all your entry areas and see what your risk is -

todays richmond #s -

today was the 17th and the # was as good as any lottery #

16-93-89 we had a low in the 39 range a high 2 ticks short of 61 and where does the 89 fit in -
8+9=17
17+low of 39.75 =56.75 the price @ 4:01est

sometimes things just line up

Ok first day trading system and doing it live was a bit stressful esp using very small time frame, it is very simple but complex method, hopefully tom will be better. Ive got to learn system and rules for runners bc I got took out not understanding rules. All in All not bad day...bad trade accidentally flipped at end of day(cost me -1.25pts guess finger was tired laying on mouse,lol) my mistake. Still finished 3 pts ugh this is after commission's of to many trades


Thx CreekBoy for your help

Hi! This is F16. Today I went short @ 72.50 with a 6 tick stop. I exited after 22 ticks! Creeker lets me chart now and I call out what I see. Around 10:05 I wanted to get out at 70 but creeker said to stay in bc it was below that black pivot line. I didn't know what that was until after it was over. I didn't take the long bc I was walking my puppy!

F16 These are the trades that happened when I was walking puppy.

#1..I would have wanted to get in around 67.25 and my stop would have been 65.75 (6ticks). My rule is 7 tick max which I go by off the last low candle.

#2..I would have exited when the Moving average broke the trend line. I could of had 1.34 points
This was also a short at 69 but if I folllowed the rules I would have gotten out at 2 ticks above my enter point. Sometimes though I get scarred and would have maybe gotten out 67 or 68 depending how I felt. This is my biggest problem, I don't stay in long enough sometimes and I don't use my 7 tick loss rule.

#3 This was a long but I couldn't take it bc it was passed my 7 tick loss. The candles were too high off the moving average for me to get in in time. I couldn't get in passed 68.50.

#4 This was a short but creeker said hi risk bc it was set above this pivot thing....and he was right since it did go up. :bye:

yes-technical target with better than 3 hours left in trading day-it can do anything until it gets there
right now there is a technical short at 74.50.

F16 again

#5 In at 71.5. stayed in this time and got out when i was pose to @ 72.25

#6 Didn't take this short. Not good at entering real fast when I get out of something...but if I did my rules would have had me out @ 71.25 and i wudda had 4 tix

#7- i wudda been in at 72.25 but i left for lunch and took puppy out. my stop was 70.50. The rule exit was 74.75. uch: Creeker says this was a systamatic trade bc AD 1050 line was going up steady.

#8 - 74.25 went short and i had a 7 tick stop. Got out at 72.00. didn't wait for line to cross trend - scared. sometimes it works! 9 more tix!

Got here late. So I entered in at 62 for 8 tix. I reversed to the short at 64 too. This was too choppy for me. I didn't like this trade but I hung in there bc creaker said the ad was at a -10. and did another reverse at 61.75 long.

Yesterday Ninja crashed on open bc of bad indicator I added it was not one of creekboys so i didnt get charts up correctly, and chop at end of day and not understanding rules I had real bad day live, today understanding rules better and tweaked setup a little, running two different time frame Ma one is shown other is same one Creek runs... Today is ALOT smoother, thx Creekboy

Also added 3 rd ma that shades between short and long ma so its adds a quick reference for 50% of other ma's on bigger moves. and I use 6 tick target box but stop is 1 tick below high or low so its still 7 tick i just do it a little differently

looking good...
did you change the start of new trend lines from MA crossovers to a trend line MA cross?

I have approximate answers, possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty of different things. But I'm not absolutely sure of anything and there are many things i don't know anything about.

program - i have two different charts i run - on the swing charts with much higher ma's i start at the ma crosses-
for day trading i use the trend/ma cross -it helps findind a-b-c-d pivots better -
below is a chart that shows both on a day chart -entry is still the same -

Grrrrr.... Still can't code that MA trendLine in Multicharts... And here i thought this would be fun practice

I have approximate answers, possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty of different things. But I'm not absolutely sure of anything and there are many things i don't know anything about.

In my efforts to become more proficient with multicharts/powerlanguage I guess I've really neglected asking for help. I'm pretty sure Cory only codes Ninja, but i think i know of a few members that can do it in multicharts.

This is my first post to this forum as i am impressed by your system. However, i am unable to grasp it completely and it will be very helpful for novice traders like us if you can develop a step by step guide with charts and webinar.

last evening rad4633 and i skyped
he showed me the on demand on tos -so we pulled up a random date and chart and started to trade for maybe 40 min.
now the tos on demand system seemed a bit sluggish -and i had to use there ladder setup to trade which was a challenge in getting it to work -
but once we had everything as figured out as best we could we were up 350 dollars on system sets -
i really know nothing about doing webinars but there is 1 post in this thread that has a very detailed entry procedure -i wish i could recall what post # it is but i cant -
i have a few people on here we skype test with and maybe i will get some feed back as to what they need to see -
also if you could start a post on what webinars need for good content and we can pick what we would like or what works with this system -thanks for your post

I am working with Creekboy, as soon as I have enough info i will post what your looking for. But I have to grasp all the details and rules before i can post a guideline. This system is a mechanical system but some parts are discretionary, this is what makes it harder to define.

here is a setup

1- ma breaks floating trend -

2 - ma's cross

3- new floating trend set of first high or low in this case (solid black)

4 equal or new low sets - solid trendline gets moved to where the new dotted trendline is and the down trend continues

6 -ma breaks trendline

7- good 7 tick risk entry (per plan)

8 -new floating trend starts after the cross

watch as you go screen to screen the trendline will adjust -

as the trendline adjust it is adding time

the long we charted has captured a 2.5 profit at this time with no system exit

system exit -homerun days are made by grabbing 12 to 15 of these a day

1.5 point ave times 12 = 18 points = homerun for 1 contract traders
