1. WHAT DO YOU NEED.

Regarding the charts here it is:

- 13 Range Chart (Normally i trade CL so most of my examples will be on CL)

Regarding the indicators

please check image

I will begin the strategy with the simple formation of a 123 buy and 123 sell.
later i will add how to filter the trades using DM and Stochastics.

This is it for now.

Will be back with more.

Cheers.

J Dennis Neeman.

123 Strategy Short Trading Rules

The 123 Strategy is one of the simpler and most profitable strategies i have come across, with some additions we arrive to a method to filter out trades and take out the guessing.


First of all, the question go to how i identify the swings high or low? to form the 123 structure, well you can do this by "eye" it only need to comply with the rule that THE 3 LEVEL CANNOT EXCEED THE NUMBER 1 LEVEL,
To make this easier, i use an indicator in NT called Swing with the strength parameter set to 5 , this automatically give me the swings high and low. (see Image 1) ,


SELL STRUCTURE

Since i will be using the swing indicator to identify for me the levels, to sell i want to see two swing highs and one swing low, the swing low has to be in the middle of the two swing highs, (See image 3)
- The distance between the number 2 and number 3 cannot be more than 40 ticks.
- The closer the 2 and 3 the better.
- The price should be below the 18 EMA at the time of the breakout of number 2
- Place a pending order to sell 1 tick below the 2 level price
(The pending order is placed once you have a 3 level confirmed, )

If the down trend is strong the Number 3 has the possibility to turn in a number 1 and begin another assault down forming a new 123 structure.

PROFIT LEVELS

I normally use Fibonacci Extensions to determine my profit levels, (See image to check on settings)
I take number 1 and extend down to number 2 since i will take a trade 1 tick lower the number 2 i place the last leg of FIB one tick below number 2, this gives me my profit targets.

About the Stop you should have a fixed number to loss a day, but every one is free to choose his stop.

NOTE: When you approach a "BURNING LEVEL" as i call them this could be, Prior day High, low, Open, Current Day Open, you should trade with caution.

Later we will see confirmation with DM and Stochastics.

Cheers-

J Dennis Neeman.

You should look at @Gary's threads, very similar in style although he uses a 6 range.

Thanks for posting this, I found it interesting. I played around with it on sim today and had some success. Obviously this was all one downtrend in the larger scheme, but using this method and the fib extensions I was able to trade the minor pullbacks.
