Broker

Horst,
Great trading and management. One thing I have noticed is that when you enter your trades you get filled instantly. Almost like a blink of an eye. Do you enter with a market order or limit order. I currently use Infinity and every time I place a limit order it fills very slow and sometimes not all orders get filled. Also your dome is not as jumpy as mine with Infinity. If I can ask who your broker is so that I can look into switching to them. Also if I can ask what rates they are charging for a full turn around including all fees. Once again great trading.

Thanks
Hector

Horst mentioned this to me also? The DOM bouncing around on some data feeds. That is very interesting.

Hi Hector,

My broker is AMP, and the datafeed was TT before I changed over to CQG. My entries are at the bid/ask price on the DOM. You didn't see all my videos if you say I get total instant fills....hahahaha......Exits are at market unless target was hit. Here is a quote from a previous post regarding bouncing and jittery NT DOMs

"The only reason I chose Trading Technologies over Zenfire was the fact of the Zenfire data made my DOM very bouncy and jittery for some reason. I tried TT and it was a lot smoother and less hectic. Strange thing was that it was pc specific. I didnt experience the Zenfire bouncing on my laptop. Asking around I discovered that it was hit or miss. If you've seen Julia's videos she commented that her DOM seemed to be bouncing a lot, and she has TT, so go figure.

Traded The CL and the 6E this morning. There was a point in the first gift on the CL that has me wondering if my boundary got moved somehow, or if it was actually slippage when the price bars spiked up like they did. It was something like a 1.5 point gift. Very interesting........The CL wasn't playing nice, so I decided to visit the 6E around the open. The 6E was in a much better mood than the CL, so we waltzed a few numbers around the floor. It led and I followed. A good time was had by all.....

Good job Horst! That was great as I think I would have let my emotions get the best of me on the large gift. Way to stay composed!

"Foot"


Greetings Horst,

Thanks for sharing your trades......truely inspirational.

I was wondering if you would talk a little bit about the "foot" pattern and how you use it in your trading?

Thanks, Jeff
