I have been trading for about 15 years and really am fortunate to have a career that has supported my trading education until I became profitable. I've traded most of the index's and found that my primary issue is discipline. I landed on the CL and the ES and trade the CL between 8 and 9 and the ES from 9 to 10:30 Central time and found that this works for me. I have 3 monitors with the CL at a 3500 and 1000 Tick and I trade off of a 300 Tick using a 100 tick as an indicator. On the ES I use a 4500, 1500 and 500 with a 100 tick indicator as well. I use a moving average with stochastic cross over and trade when all time frames are aligned. Trade 1 contract always till $100 profitable then add size allowed per my rules. Target $200 per contract per day. Max loss per day is 3% then off go the monitors. I oft times just lurk around and try to gather info but find that this type of sharing helps me and hopefully provides some ideas to others as I am always looking to improve.

I trade the ES as well, but use a different strategy. Here is my US premarket strategy. I use the 512 Tick only and use Heikin Ashi candles and trade on the pull backs. See the attachment
I trade at least 2 contracts, I take profit at 5 ticks on the first contract then move my stop to breakeven on the other. Then trail it by three candles. My initial stop is one tick under the bottom of the pull back but not more than 2 points from entry.

I use this same strategy on trending days during the US Market but it will kill you on choppy days. I am working on a different strategy for it. Any suggestions are welcome.


I use the momentum indicator for divergence.

My goal is at least $500 per day and stop trading at $1000.

Hi Jay

I've been trying develop a Heiken Ashi tick chart strategy for awhile now and haven't had much luck.

Would you be willing to share the finer points of your strategy; your entry signal rules, your indicator settings etc?

Or if you were able to share your Tradestation strategy code that would be amazing.

Any help or tidbits you could offer would be great and very much appreciated.
