Thanks to all of your post on this thread. Would be best if we keept this Renko discussion on this thread. That was my intention from the start of the thread. Only glad if any of my post are off any use. I have been looking at numbers bars lately and if they are of any use with FlexRenko. If using setings like 30-29-28 and larger the pullback bars can be quite large without the trend changes. If using numbers bars and have the pullback column on might pin point the entry on the pullback. I have never used numbers bars in the past so any feedback in this matter would be nice. Regards Outlander

Testing the gold strategy on a free 2 week topsteptrader account today so it seems to be working rather nicely, a lot of 20-40 second trades and a couple of trades that were held for much longer.
Interessting results, 12K profit on a 150K simulated trading account for basically 2-3 hours of work. I am really happy with how Gold is turning out at the moment.
6E is simply a fucking disaster at times, the smaller timeframes will fuck you over on buy/sell stop entries because of the excessive risk of a reversal signal bar literally popping up 3-4 candles later. As for the buyback(retrace) entries.. they are fine sometimes but still a high risk and running some simple spreadsheet calculations you will end up being highly unfavourably.
So as it stands right now anything but the higher tickrange charts on 6e seem not to be doable, simply because of the lack of volatility. I am reverting back to my method of entries and exits for scalping the 6e for now since its much more accurate, i am keeping a 30-29-28 chart open for now in case i catch a trend and to keep me inside the move.
I am liking the results i am getting on the Equity derivatives though (especially Russel). Have not tested other commodities other than GC for now because of the implied volatility.
Going live Tommorow @ US session once i have a buffer in the morning.
Have you taken it live yet?

Post your MAE and MFE per trade and examine risk compared to return. If your profit is consistently above 1R per trade and your position sizing is such that no single trade exceeds roughly 2% of your funds, you are doing well.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

There is obviously no disagreement about this on my behalf, the other screenshots i have posted have the sierraversion of Entry Efficiency and Exit Efficiency on them. I would post the information but the platform topstep provides does not really hand out that information.
As for the 1R and the % size of account. for this account the risk per trade was below 0.5% per trade with 6 exceptions. The trades did not necessarily have a 1R on them, most of the time it was well above that but in my live system i sometimes dont get to 1R simply because if you are scalping for 3-4 ticks profit and your stop is about 3-6 ticks you have to compensate with a very high accuracy rate, which for me is about 80-90% depending on the instrument and varies on a month to month basis.
I would agree with you though that for a system that i want to automate these things need to be "in order" or "in place" before you can deploy it efficiently, but right now i am still working on these details.
Shows the right time twice a day. DAX so far worked ok. As most of the time the shorts doing better than the long trades. Entry are on pullbacks but not with a fixed stop entry 4 ticks from H/L. It uses a rolling entry and the larger the pullback the closer from H/L the entry stops gets. Regards Outlander
