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

1600 tick chart pivot and r/s levels-notice how r-2 is base hit and green line is pivot

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
