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.

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.
