Glad to hear it. Am supposed to get highspeed in a few days. My neighbour has 65 ms latency - which is FAST. I hope it works via Zenfire that way too.

Another advantage with Ninja-Zen (I have been told but cannot prove) is that orders are sent in immediately so you are in the queue whereas with TS bracket orders are not entered until the price is triggered. I did get some great fills with TS, though, often on low tick of bar with only a few prints, but I suspect in congested or very fast/thick markets they come up short compared to ZenF. Photon looks interesting too, esp. with $2.00 R/T rates.

EofWeekAnalysis

After Monday's run up the market ran into resistance between 1136 & 1139. Analysis of DOM_Bands predicted this (earlier posting). Once hitting an balance of -3 (3 times more asked then bid) the market staled.

Was productive in indicator template development: DOM_Bands BSVLine Came up with new templates and workspace. Trading was about break-even as I was overwhelmed with all the possibilities gleaned from participating in this forum.

Goals for Next Week. Work an staying focused - Now Moment. Trading is a job not a source for pleasure or pain (winning and losing trades). Take every setup: anticipate and define risk constantly. Work 5 hours a day watching the screens. Coding can only be done when off.

What a Good Rally from the open looks like


Went back and ran 12/21/2009. Just to see what a Good Rally looked like. Was reading Dragons Home Runs or Daily Goals? Made me think about big moves in the morning days. On a day like I show in the following charts I'd stopping @ 8:30 and go spend some earnings.

There is a less than one minute to get after the market opens (1st chart) in but the second entry is easier to see and allows the submission of a Long stop anticipating more upside.

EofDay

Can't help myself. was looking @ indicators and finally got BSVLine in better share thanks to Zondor. Implemented it & made a trade 12 minutes later.

Here is the trade: Long 2 @ 1141.25 + 2 @ 1141.75 + 3@ 1142.25. Exit 7 @1142.25. 5 minutes in the market, 'cause I had an appoint & was late. If I had used a trailing incrementally advanced sell stop might have made (would have made?) 12 more ticks, but do not like to leave unattended trades on days like today.

ES Trend Reversal?

Looking at the 1440 minute (daily) ES it is possible that the rally has run out of steam. Weakening Waves has been the norm, usually a sign that serious resistance has been met with weaker waves of buying. 1st down target 1132, then 1125. EMA(50) is @ 1105. The 6 range chart look like a likely Head&Shoulders, neckline is 1132.

No more Tick Charts for me

Took a break at exactly the wrong time yesterday - 8:00 after getting shaken out of a short at 1136.5. If I had stuck with the 5 minute chart it was obvious that I should try again at 1137.5. Or have based the stop loss on the 6 range chart @1138.25,

Came back at 10 am & and saw that the DOM_Bands has a throw over: delta crossing the ask - Cumulative Bid>>Cumulative Ask. When the opposite happened a few days ago the Market Stalled @1136. (Was not cleared until the market ran up over night on light volume, sold off and ran up into the close.)

Looked like a bottom to me but also a potential region of Barb Wire (Al Brooks). In total disgust I went back to trying to understand why jtRealStats won't work in NT7. Tried another Buy, but was early.

Thanks to Zondor for helpful discussion, going to take his advice. Barry Taylor "uses multiple time frame charts to time his trades. He gives some of the most straighforward and logical trading advice I have seen anywhere."

The wonder of Multiple Time frames confirming signals

So, after my folly using of tick charts, (but they look so cool), I built a workspace based on 5 minute (ADX SMA20, DOM_Bands,GomCD &BVS_Line), 30 min (GomVolumeLadder {SIGN UP for VIP}, ADX, SMA, BSV, DOM, 6 range ADX, GomCDHA, EMA20 & 1440 min charts EMA50, SMA14 bsAC, Vol.

Took the first trade that fit my interperation of Al Brooks. Set a tight limit and reasonable stop loss. Made a total of 1.5 points, not much but it is a start. Actually left the room for coffee and took a break (bad move - oh, well).

Then noticed that the Goms gave good signals at the low of today when there was a Brooks-style failed breakdown @1129.25. BSV confirmed buying and possibly some buy program action.

Again, so glad I found this forum.

Biggest move was over lunch - Was it a squeez?


That is the question. Bears took control at the end - never see the DOM so heavy. Still selling off as I write.
