Laserdan's Development of a Stategy

Well here it goes...

I have been told that I am a breakout trader, so I thought I would document the idea I came up with.

I use Point and Figure charts (PnF) developed by for ninja trader. Trading the ES and using box sizes of 1 tick X 3 ticks , 4 ticks and 5 ticks

right now I am fooling around with DeltaBidAsk Volume as a confirmation of the break out. Havent coded it into the strat yet, but visually looking at it.

Here are my charts:

Hi Laserdan, a few questions

Is this mechanical or fully automated?
Have you traded it cash?
If automated, do you take any discretionary trades or only the strategy?
Have you backtested it, and if so, what do you think of the results?


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? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Right now it is in the idea stage.

My intention is to update the community as to my progess each week.

I want it to be fully automatic.

Right now I am running the strategy in simulation on live data in real time in the 3 timeframes shown in the pic. That way i can get a feel for the bid ask delta on trades that do work.

Since I have not written the piece for shorts, I will explain the longs.

The Green arrows below the price bars on the PnF charts on the bottom are my entry signals - which sets a buy stop 1 tick above the previous (green) bar. The numbers below the green arrow are the number of bars that have the same High. Right now I am taking every entry without regard to DeltaBidAsk.

The plan is to see if there is a correlation between volume and Break outs and modify the script to look for those before entering.

So ideas are welcome, but not neccesary...I will keep you all updated.

The 15min chart and 30s chart are just for me, not related to strat at all.
