f16 sim tested today from start to finish - she had to chart and trade -and find the balance of where her focus had to be at any given time - she tried to take every move she saw and was in the red at first by nearly 7 points -realizing that once she placed a trade her focus went to the money and not the chart -so we had her set her hard stop to redirect her focus to the next setup and ended up on the sim 287.50 or 5.75 points -a great day for her first try at both sides -

was discussing this with time freedom -all charts no matter what the ma's used all seem to lead to the same areas

good morning espi:
creeker wanted me to explain a 'jumper' since i have a hard time seeing these live.
A jumper is when the ma crosses the trend line BUT doesn't cross the other ma and turns back toward the direction it came from. The blue line is a price level line to show where the ma came back up to where it first crossed over the trend. When this happens, you need to re evaluate and possibly reverse. I hope this makes sense.

in regards to jumper poste-shows no sign of weakness to give a verifiable short
anyone trying to auto trade this system will get stopped out in these areas consistently- so be careful

someone on a skype chat asked me this question and he/she said it was ok to post over here.

Here is my question: does price have to cross the blue line or does the ma have to cross the blue line to make it a jumper? Usually, price will cross first, then the ma. Sometimes, price will cross, but the ma does not. So again, is it price that has to cross the blue line or the ma to make it a jumper? Thanks.

[11:39:50 AM] : the ma has to cross to make it a jumper...but it doesn't mean it will do it just means you have to watch it, thats why i don't like these and they are confusing to me. creekteach wants to know if i can post your question on mikes without your name and then answer it over there.

Here's another question from a skyper:

[2:24:58 PM] How do you guys draw your lines on the A&D chart? I know you're using fib retracements, but not sure how you get the lines set.
[2:27:41 PM] : go back 10 days-find highest high and lowest low-set your fibs at 0, 100, 50 - keep splitting every signal box until you have 250-300 point total bewteen lines per level- 0 never ends up on zero-kinda funny

Also, the picture below is a trade where i got in at 89.00 system entry. Freakycreaky didn't like it because it gave my entry too easy so he told me to take 2 ticks and get out.

well its been 9 weeks since we first started the easy edge system -

if you have been keeping track -we have banked over 400 es points since starting this thread -

using 1 contract as and example -

400 x 50 = 20,000 in 9 weeks

now assuming that there are 225 trading days in the year (9 weeks =45 days )

45 x 5 = 225

400 x 5 = 2000 es points

2000 x 50 = 100,000

using just 1 contract -

imagine if 1/2 the people collecting unemployment were trained to use this system -it would sure change the world -


for 9 weeks now we have showed you how the market moves and flows -

its does not come after you if you wait your turn -

there will be many that will try to auto trade this setup

and when there system hits a jumper zone and there contracts are stacked to high for the market to absorb -there will be record slippage recorded -

so stick to doing the charting yourself and keep your destiny in your own hands where you can be proud of who you are when you look in the mirror -
