morad,

have you ever considered adjusting your zig zag study in conjunction with volatility changes? In your opinion what would the benefits and downfalls be for such an approach. Additionally, if you trade globex and US cash session do you think it would be prudent to run separate harmonic studies on each session?

thanks.

Great question.

Yes, I do adjust the zigzag. It is interesting though that the ES doesn't veer much away from 2.5-3.25 pts per rotation. That product is not able to sustain high volatility for long enough periods of time. I update zigzag studies about every 6 months. IRT has made it much easier to do now. It is more important to stay up to date on the harmonic changing on thinner products like the NQ, TF, FDAX, GC, CL, SI and others.

Yes, I would want to know what the globex session is doing versus US RTH. I generally treat Globex like it is a whole different product. Technically it is because the underlying stocks are not trading.

Best,
FT71

@FuturesTrader71

I am interested in what type of risk management practices, and procedures are taken at an institutional level. What types of things are firms looking at if they are managing several desks, with dozens of strategies and instruments? Other than VaR, cVAR, Expected Shortfall, instrument or strategy correlation? I would like your input on what its like to manage such a large operation?

Is he using Investor RT for Orientation, planning etc.. and
S5 Trading Platform for executing the orders, or is he also using Investor RT for trading.
Is it possible to trade from IRT in the charts.
