Just an idea for your method, it would be easier if you could make a video of your setups maybe by using a free service like anymeeting . Just an idea. Happy continuation.

Over few years i have understand that working with an individual trader will help him much more then posting it just on web... may be later on .. but for now i would like to work one on one for some time because that way i can know how much a trader is progressing from where he began .. Thanks for the suggestion will implement it once i start making some progress with few traders.. Have some great fun trading

Best Regards
Jinhar

What a class act you are! Thanks for all the information in this thread, and your selfless efforts! I am yet to start trading with real cash, and still working through techniques using historical data, but I have read this thread through and through with great interest. I'm using 5r and 15r charts on CL (just data from the first 6 months of the year at the moment) with an 55 period EMA, and by just eyeballing the charts have found your simple methods seem to work really well. I'm interested in exploring some of the cases where A trades (ones from my understanding I think are A entry points) don't go so well to further refine my understanding. If you are ok with it, as soon as I get to that point (probably take me a week or so to get some examples together) I would like to take you up on your offer and post my examples for discussion.

Thanks again!

I would love to work with you .. if you have skype my id is jinay.k buzz me there and we can discuss it further. ... Thanks for the kind comments.. Happy trading ..

Best Regards
Jinhar

I'll send you a PM. But basically you would just start with the basics, list of indicators, settings, then use this thread as your guide on where to go with the presentation. A set of rules or principals, guidelines, etc - as well as look over the thread for a list of commonly asked questions, address those in the webinar, etc.

Last would just to be able to answer questions people ask in the webinar where possible so they can get instant feedback on what they are seeing on a chart you are showing on your screen.

Okay ,

There seems to be a lil confusion . when i said working one on one with me .. i never asked any one to trade my setups .. my aim on working one on one is to make sure u get to a level were u can make ur daily targets .. so if that means working on setups which u have that's fine .. Trading is not about what setups u trade .. but how u trade them please understand that .. So if u want to work on ur setup that's fine if u want to work with me on the trend setups which i have defined that's fine . its ur choice really.. Hope this clears lil bit of confusion .. have a great .. day..

Best Regards
Jinhar

Criteria for setups bar are as follow,

B setup:- Close below the ma on the higher timeframe
A setup:- Pullback towards the ma on the smaller timeframe.. then u can enter with different methods Fib indicators whatever u like i enter with the pa alone but that's just me
C setup:- this is the breakout trade in the direction of the trend so that's your setup
D setup:- This is mainly on double tops bottoms or Lower highs higher bottoms ..
Again this are just setup bar criteria you will need to go over setup rules to understand this .. Thanks

Happy trading hope it helps.

Best Regards
Jinhar

Hi Jinhar,
thanks for making the thread , i found it very helpfull . As i am only starting to learn about pa can you clarify one or 2 points for me.

in one of your previous threads you wanted the pa to get back in synch with the trend , i presume by in sync you mean HH and HL on an uptrend? and is that only on the higher timeframe or both timeframes.

in your B setup ,is it still a Valid B setup when it crosses below the ma if price is on an uptrend with HH and HL , or do you need to see a change in the pa first , a LH and then a dip below the ma

regards

Steve
