here are a few pics of my best guess auto trading the 30 min es -using 2 points slippage each way of ma break and a 15 point stop for obvious reasons - not bad results for the big money managers .
even at 17.50 per weekly ave of profit for 52 weeks -that 910 es points or 45,500 dollars per contract -
remember your results may be different -as my results are from past experiance
but its easily back tested

f16 went flat for 2 ticks and has left the building-

she ended with 5.25 points -not bad on a big range high volume day like today

a few future targets to squash the shorts just a little bit more -

f16 will be doing her thing and I will be running the 5 min chart using the 6/21 as my moving ave combination -remember the ma's are always corrolated to time and distance -
