Kevin, in one of your webinars you mentioned TASC magazine as a good source of trading ideas. In your opinion, does it hold for fx, too or would you call another source a "#1"? I am not expecting getting good strategies served on a silver plate, just ideas with more fx than futures in focus.

In the spirit of encouragement.... I would suggest getting more involved here in FIOís community and many ideas, edge related and otherwise, can be cultivated, gleaned and grown from your interactions with other members.

Try for 5 posts a day, for example. In about a week you will have doubles your post count. Just an idea.

Trade Journal..... is another one.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

Since Kevin probably won't self-promote himself, interested readers may like to know that he just did an interview/podcast over at Better System Trader focused on his latest book on entries and exits.

162 - Building effective entries and exits - Kevin Davey - Better System Trader

This is his fourth interview/podcast with them, but the first in several years. The previous ones are
041 - Collaboration in Trading with Michael Cook and Kevin Davey
038 - Trading goals with Kevin Davey - Better System Trader
005 - Interview with Kevin Davey - Better System Trader

Hey Kevin if your hiring a PR guy, can I apply?*

*Obviously a joke. While I know Kevin, and have taken his class, I have no financial relationship with him or any other "quid pro quo" relationship.

I'm sure this has been asked before but on tradestation's help page:

Advanced Chart Types - Strategy Back-testing & Automation


Bars on Kagi, Point & Figure, Renko, and Line Break charts, bars do not form until prices have moved a certain amount. For this reason, when back-testing, it is possible to know the direction of the bar, and to guarantee that the bar is of a certain size, before initiating a trade. To illustrate this effect, the following strategy can be placed on a P&F, Renko or Line Break Chart and will show 100% profitability in back-testing:

Sell short next bar low stop ;

Buy to cover this bar close ;

Buy next bar high stop ;

Sell this bar close ;


As I understand, the code above can provide a reliable backtest but which code should be used in a *live* strategy? Please correct me if I'm wrong.
