I've recently discovered that simple is often the best approach in most cases. I kid you not, i recently had my gardner sit at my trading computer, told him "If the bar starts to go down, hit the sell button, if the bar starts to go up, hit the buy button", I then left the room for 20 minutes, came back, and he was up over 600$ !

I've ditched most of my indicators, keeping only CCI, RSI and Adx trend bar on chart. I then ignore them... and trade when ^Adv/^Decl trends, ^Tick is at extremes, or the ^SPX is trending and trade accordingly. My success rate has jumped from 55% to 95% as a result...

I was able to reduce my stoploss to 4 ticks, hit only once so far...

I watch in two charts, one of the 233 tick, and the other 144 tick
It is easier if you use the first time, HeikenAshi and the Bollinger.
After a short time, you will not need them.

Seems like you have a good risk to reward. How do you determine that?

How big are your targets? With a 4 tick stop, are you aiming for 1-2 points?

the normal target price is 20 points, but sometimes I'm not patient, and 10 tick the stop

Are you using bollinger bands to try and catch the turning points?


Yes I have used, easier to see. But now I do not have to use it.

Hi, fellow Londoner here, you're doing really well, congrats!

Seems you prefer shorting, and you mainly enter on a low 1, when the price dips below previous low which works great in a downtrend or with nice wide movement days. You get killed with chop and trying to catch a reversal in strong bull days.

Your exit strategy is paying off nicely you let the winners run, would you explain your stop strategy? It looks like about 1.5 or 2 points , is it a set value or do you adjust it according to price action?

Yes, If the price does not move as fast as I expected, I adjust it.

I go for 10 ticks generally unless the market tells me otherwise.

What I've been doing most often is start the trade and set my target to 1 tick below/above the next resistance/support. Sometimes that is 8-12 ticks, sometimes its 60 ticks.

I then move my stop down to swing tops as it moves. The swing size depends on how much the VIX is (above 15, I use bigger swings)

I have been learning to use stop-loss as a last resort, I take it upon myself to make my best reading of the indicators and price action (and index price action) to determine if I should just exit, and when I feel that, I bail.

I'm also taking less trades, I wait for the "sure thing" now and have stopped trying to pick market tops and bottoms, following the market price action is far better for me then trying to make perfect trades. Its far better to take 75% of a move--vs get stopped out of half my trades which cuts into profits far more then just grabbing the 75% middle of a swing.

I find to many indicators can lead to a loss of focus. Simplify your trading to a few and learn how to use them inside an out.

Still fascinated with your method.
Looks like you play off PA especially previous swings, could you go into any more detail?

There is nothing secret, I watch in 3-4 charts at a time. For example:70, 144, 233, 444 ticks. If you look at an product for a long time, You'll see the contexts. Choose a product , and know it. That's a long time, but worth it.

Very good @Porter , I believe naked is the way to go. I don't mean to get your system or anything but any particular reason why you held that last short on 2/19? or why you held it past the 1227.5 level? I am curious on how you track your trades.

Revealing... @Porter , any particular book / blog you suggest or what you consider was a good source of your current knowledge?

I try to get to know an instrument, and use the "price action + multiple time frames".

@Porter

I noticed you mostly take short trades. Just wondering why.

How fascinating to read the journal and see your evolution as a trader (especially adding other instruments like the CL and DAX and how tight your risk management has become)! Mad props for the consistency. Just out of curiosity, do you ever bother looking at the volume as well, or are you literally only looking at the naked charts you posted? Thanks!

I do not watch the volume, but sometimes I look at this chart

Hi Porter,

I was really looking for something different here at BM, I'm very glad that I read this tread!

Have a few questions if you have time, you can write so times;
You are more likely to act in the US session or in the morning?
How do you decide what value you act today?

It's really amazing how you increase your Performancer, congratulations !!!
I wish that I could say about me...

Cheers Maxie

I hope the translation is ok, is made"mr.google"
