Hi Sawyer,
If I may ask what are your results with the Rivalland strategy?
I looked at the preview of his book on Amazon and looks interesting;combining regular charting with Point and Figure?

Sure: I have documented 47 closed positions so far. "One position" being (a), (b), etc. in the trade documentation above, i.e. one trade is usually two positions. Overall profit is +23.27 R, i.e. an average of 0.50 R per trade/position.

I haven't been very thorough when it comes to taking every signal, though, which is something I plan to do when going real-money. Plus, I need to do some backtests on more exotic markets before trading them (which I haven't done so far). Point and Figure is a great concept, but I don't have a convenient way to include it into my trading. As for indices, I'm mainly looking at swing charts now.

His book is available as a PDF from various Bittorrent trackers. You can download and have a look at the whole thing before buying it. Aside from that: buy it; it's a classic.

News for 2013

First, I have opened a CFD account at a decent broker (there aren't that many of them), which offers CFDs on cash indices with external quotes, i.e. data is provided by Reuters, and they donít get to mess with them. I will be swing trading the following indices regularly:

DE30 DAX
STOXX50 Euro Stoxx
US500 S&P 500
USTEC Nasdaq 100
US2000 Russell 2000
SWI20 SMI
UK100 FTSE 100
N25 AEX
ES35 IBEX
F40 CAC

The following markets are on my watchlist, which means that Iím not trading them with real money for now:

WTI Spot WTI Light Crude Oil
BRENT Spot Brent Crude Oil
MGOLD Mini Spot Gold
MSILVER Mini Spot Silver

Second, my swing trading strategy for stocks did not prove too successful. I have written about that earlier: itís a lot of hassle to screen for good setups, and stuff that looks good visually might not work all that well. So, Iím going to trade a small basket of stocks in an Al-Brooks-way. The goal is to get profitable, and finally implement this strategy with the same stocks using options.
