Horst,

I realize the FDAX was consolidating, but why did you jump on that one? Seems like you had a lot of sep and no area? Just curious.

Good trading!

Consolidating.....conschmalidating, it was at the 23% retrace looking for the other 1/2 of the leg. The 23% is an area, IF all the stars shining, and Jupiter aligns with Mars.

I still don't know how Henry does it with such a lagging indicator as MacdBB. ...

Don't want to disrupt the discussion or the journal but i'd like to correct this false perception. The MACD with Bollinger bands is lagging but you would use it to detect where resistance is likely to be found. When the dots rolls on the edge of the bands then you know that price is facing some resistance. That's the way i use it and in that sense it's leading the way.

Absolutely true. The MacdBB's are a leading indicator for those that have the ability to read them. To those that don't, it's nothing more than a bunch of squiggly lined up balls that don't work...... move on......Next Indicator

They can tell just how much of a pullback you are about to receive, and also when. Can't tell me they are laggers

BUT, they are no different than any other indicator. If you spend enough time with ANY indicator, on an intimate level, and study nothing else exclusively, the same results can be achieved. The problem with traders is that in search of the 'HOLY GRAIL", they miss the point that it is within them the whole time. If I would have studied the (for example purposes) the CCI, the same results would apply. Yes, the CCI is a leading indicator IF you know it well enough to be able to tell what it is thinking. The MacdBB is nothing special, it's just that I have become one with it, and it talks to me and tells me what is about to happen to price bars because of its particular positioning.

I see, off the longer term, it was a 23 retrace. Wow, I didn't look that far to the left or I didn't see it as I probably didn't listen to the whole video (don't recall now). Good!

'nothing against Horst he seems to play with real money by looking at his acct number on NT'

like I said,New futures trading wants 7-10K for mentorship thus my CEmptor. Horst is trading with real money as you can see from his DOM,the man is honest. The Henry guy at new futures has a dubious background and motive for someone too charge 7-10 K for learning the MACD BB indicator and Fibonacci retracement methods is a RIP OFF. Nothing new here,we see it all day with Futures trading,one just has to Google. I was on his trial for a week and he would tell the prospective clients you will get the indicator after signing up! FOFF.
He also seems to gearing towards Indian traders for some reason,maybe he thinks they dont have the Internet in India and read about Futures trading classes/rooms.

in no way I'm saying this is not a real account. and sorry for being off topic. but I think people need to know that showing some numbers on the dom doesn't mean anything. you can create any sim account with numbers of your liking.

again sorry for hijacking your thread.

Wow, interesting and I didn't know that. Cool.

I am as skeptical as anyone and I believe that Horst is legit. Reason being is:

1. That he legitimately tries to help me and I have already paid the fee.

2. I have seen Henry (not Horst) do very well in person from watching the charts much like what I see Horst do.

3. Horst is not that technical or wasn't with Ninja and nor is his Mentor (Henry). Henry uses TradeStation and I remember having many conversations with Horst trying to push NinjaTrader or at least keep him on NT over TS! It would be a jump for Horst to know how to put in a fake sim account into NinjaTrader or do that early on since he started doing this in October. I know, I showed him how to do a bit of the stuff that you are seeing him do today. Plus another guy has created some programming for him as well, so unless the other guy is also in on it. I remember showing him how to scroll vertically, chart trader, etc...

Just my 2 cents. Not defending Horst as I could be wrong, but I highly doubt it.

just to be clear. I didn't say he's not trading with real money.

I'm just saying that I wouldn't be surprised if some vendors use "enhanced" sim accounts for selling their product.

Yup, that is a good point! I don't doubt people do it. My AMP account has the xxxx!DORMAN! thing on it and I would prefer a regular number but I guess because I use Zenfire and not TT or the other feeds it has to be that way! It is a very valid point, but remember also that Horst is not THE vendor. He is a student.
