Chop

What about these areas, that I have highlighted in your chart. They represent areas of chops and many B entries.

they do look like potential b setups .. thats where pa comes in if you add pa to it most of it will get cleared and i dint mark those because after 11-11.30ish est trading Euro aint that great for me at the least but if you add price action on ur smaller time frame it will filter it out for you.

Trade from today for 20 ticks

This is the trade from today Which got me my ticks for the day again some of you asked me how to trade when price is chopping around the ma on the higher time frame this is a perfect example as Price was moving up and down on the higher timeframe but trade was taken with pa on smaller time frame and it worked beautifully. hope this helps.

Money management How much to risk ?

Over last few months i have talked with number of trader's and shared ideas with them over money management in different styles of trading today i will talk something that's worked for me for last 1 and half year's and it will help trader's struggling a lot most of the trader's talk about risking 2% per trade or some go more then that .. that's fine but for some one starting out that's not the best way to go as if they are starting out and they are stuck in a bad zone losses will be huge and that will affect the mind of the trader which is not good ... Remember trading is to be kept simple and stress free so i would suggest keep a daily percentage for example 1 or 2 and make that your daily target so if you are going for 30 ticks daily then you should adjust your position size in a manner that 1% equals to 30 ticks before i explained to start with a 1:1 risk reward so in this case you are risking 1% to make 1% or 30 ticks to make 30 ticks. Remember keep it simple and this method will work with trend trading you wont get winning trade or day each and every day but for scalping this if managed properly will help you to come out in green most of the weeks in a year .... Think about it .. just my one cent hope it help's.

Best Regards
Jinhar

You have done an outstanding job explaining this step by step system. I am sure many traders will benefit from your hard work.

I adhere to your mantra to "Keep it Simple. Attached are my trading charts. I use one chart with one indicator in one time frame, on one computer screen.

In the pic below, 3 green lines means look for long opportunity and 3 red lines means look for short opportunities. Two of the lines are 2 different length ema's . The priceline is color coded to exclude chop.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


One of the pics shows the actual chop filter I use. I don't have it on the screen when I trade since it is built into the price line color changes and I keep as few things on the chart as possible.

Another way to accomplish the same thing is covered in the pic of an indicator I wrote for Jeff Castille that is an all in one indicator, indicating trend, chop , entry and exits.

I believe that everyone should find what works for them and use it. You have done an excellent job explaining your system.

...

ThatManFromTexas, i tried your idea of masking the wicks and tails and just keep a dot for the close i think it facilitates the reading of price action curiously. I can better follow my Squiggly Lines.
