Great trading @Porter. I love the consistency of your gains $100 - 300 every day. Wish I could do the same.

You have mentioned a few times that the secret of your entries is the use of 4 charts (444, 244, 144 and 70 or 35 ticks). Do you watch the four charts simultaneously, looking for phasing or divergences between them? Or do you use just one of the four that is appropriate the price action of the day?

Thanks,

I watch the 4 charts together and the 144 t is the importantly.

Yes, I have stop 10 t, and target 10-15 t.
Sometimes I adjust the target.

I have gone back through all your charts, and still am confused as to what you use to determine why you enter a trade. Would be great if you could elaborate on it.

Hallo Porter,

entschuldigungen für mein Deutsch. Ich bin noch ein Anfänger. Ich habe Ihre Diagramme gesehen und folglich habe ich ein Bisschen Fragen.

Wie benutzen Sie die Bollinger Bands? ich habe momentan eine klein Idee. Gibt es ein Signal, wenn die Bar der Band anfassen?

Mögen Sie große Bewegungen (10-15+ ticks) oder kleine Bewegungen handeln?

Letzte, können Sie sagen, warum Sie vier Diagramme benutzen? Gibt es nicht zu viele Noise für handeln?

Danke aus New York.

Sorry for my German. I'm still a beginner. I have seen your diagrams and therefore have a few questions.

Why do you use Bollinger Bands? I currently have a small idea. Do you receive a signal when the price bar touches the band?

Do you prefer large movements or small movements for trading?

Last, can you say why you use 4 diagrams? Wouldn't it give too much noise for trading?

Thanks from New York

Your German much better than mine, I am now starting to learn.


"Why do you use Bollinger Bands?" Because Ilike it.

"Do you receive a signal when the price bar touches the band?" It is not enough.


"Last, can you say why you use 4 diagrams? Wouldn't it give too much noise for trading? " Bigger time frame, less noise.
