I tried Mack's method for a while on ES, but I gave up after getting not so good results...

It is not supposed to work for everyone... That's just how things work i guess....

Well, now that I know it doesn't work for others is reinforcing the "there is no magic setup".
What I have been using and working ok for me, nothing is 100% sure, is using the double moving average crossing, I use a 3 and 5 ema or a 8 and 50 ema, depending on mkt. conditions all intraday trades,
What do you use for your intraday trades, if you don't mind sharing, some do , some traders don't mind
Thanks

Thanks.

My understanding is that Brooks' original book is tough to read, but that the newer ones are much better. With that said, they are broken into 3 volumes. In your opinion, do you need to buy the three books if you are going to buy the course itself?

For me the books were so hard to read and the Course is a much better tool. It's like going to class and hearing the Professor vs just buy the class book and reading it at home.... Seriously, think about it.

I took his $99 a month live room for almost a year. That was the best investment in Trading Ed I've had. I've spent thousand on others.

It was best because it was live and the Market is changing day to day, hour to hour and 5min to 5min. Best of success in your search.

This question just jumped at me to answer. You can sample his stuff on YouTube as well. Know it is ES as the primary market.

Yes, I have purchased Macks stuff and John Paul's Day Trade to Win with software which are ok and some others I'm TOTALLY embarrassed to I say I purchased as they were such CRAP... But the Brooks course I do recommend without the books

Thanks.

Interested in starting thread pertaining to Price Action [PA] setups.

I'm currently using PA techniques from a vendor named Mack, who trades
SP500 index daily and has great success.

Hey if it works for him, why not me!!!

Would like to welcome any and/or all other people who think this way and share
thought, charts, ideas so WE ALL learn...

I like trading the Euro [6E] in pre market for it fits my day job schedule.

So lets get started!!!

Thank you


Mike Sullivan

Would like to know how your 6E trading went...

I realize I'm in a thread called "Price Action Mack Style". I know nothing about his style and just needed a starting point to post my trades/charts. If I'm in the wrong section I apologize and will find another thread.

I'm still short YM, aiming for 23521 for a target. To the left of this area you will see support, John...

My original target was 23521. Just came back home to find my target was missed by 1 tick at 23522. Decided to close my trade at 23532. Today's Tick count is plus 72.

When in a trade I have an idea where my target should be, However my number one concern is managing my risk. Very seldom do I have more than 20 ticks at risk per trade. If Price Action starts moving in my direction I start protecting my risk by moving it behind structure. Because at times structure is not so apparent on larger charts I look at lower time frames in order to find these locations, John.
