Do not fear success - Let your winners run .

Embrace setbacks - Cut your losers short.

The more I trade, the more simple the concepts become.

AJ,

I have this listed as the real holy grail...along with pressing your winners by adding size when appropriate.

Random entries work if you follow this rule.

Hi @tderrick,
Are you using Jigsaw and 9g side by side? Id be curious to hear your thought on the two. I looked at and there are still a few things I still like more about Jigsaw but the customizable profile sounds very interesting. Also the ability to 'buy out' the live order entry license on 9g is very attractive. Could you post a screenshot of the two if you are running them in tandem? Thank you

Chris

This is my two screen practice rig, but my main rig is similar - just more screens so I can see each underlying
chart in it's entirety. Been taking a few days off, so I'm just working on getting used to the Metro Ladder.

I use the 9G for order entry because it works natively in NT allowing me to scale into orders. The Jigsaw
used AT interface and will not allow you to place additional orders if you have one current.

I have the lifetime licences for both, but not the "Live" version of Jigsaw which ,as you know, is a monthly
subscription. Although, if Jigsaw was native, I would certainly place the orders there and use 9G for
something else custom. Maybe like a cool bid / ask ladder of an hourly bar. - the possibilities are endless.




What I really love about Jigsaw is the way it keeps up with contract flow. It makes it very obvious who
is in control of a leg, etc. What I love about 9G ,is that you can make it do anything.

So that's it !! 9G for order entry - scaling in / adding to positions / Workspace development.
and Jigsaw for Best order Flow tools on the planet!

I am at your service

Yep, I watched it @ 2 min 30 seconds left and then at 30 seconds left in the 5 min candle. Usually what is happening in the middle and at the end of the candle gives me an idea of what the next candle will do once it opens. This is used more once I am in a trade, I do not use it to trigger a trade or anything. But it is like the gas gauge on my bike, doesn't show me how to ride the bike, but makes me feel better when I am going down the road if it still says full!
