JSS and IRT

I've posted some files for anyone using IRT so that it is fairly easy to update the JSS levels daily from downloading from the JSS dashboard for anyone who subscribes to JSS and uses IRT.

See files attached - chart definition and flex files excel sheet. You will need to do the following:

1. Open the excel flex levels master excel sheet and save to suitable place locally on your computer.
2. To open the chart definition you will need to open the text file press alt A then alt C to copy. Go to file open on IRT and select definition and this should load up the chart.
3. On the chart, open up the flex levels and ensure that the file location matches where you saved the excel sheet.
Then this should get you today's levels.

I have set up variables for the variable distance and alert distance and these are at the top of the chart as buttons AD and VAR. You will need to amend this daily, simply select each one and update as required based on the JSS requirements for the day.

To change the levels daily, you will need to do the following (ensure 1st that you have JSS set to automatically save and update in excel format when you open the JSS dashboard and take note of where it is saved:

1. Open the JSS excel sheet and select and copy the numerical values from +C to -C (don't include the R level this is done manually)
2. Open the excel flex levels master sheet and paste the new values (I normally do a paste values only), then save.
3. Open your chart and open the flex levels. These don't update automatically, so select remote file then re-select local file and select apply at the bottom and the chart should update with the new values.
4. Click on the VAR button at the top of the chart and update if required based on JSS requirements and do the same for the AD.
5. Click the R button at the top of the chart and manually highlight the price for the R level. You might need to send to the front so that it shows up and then you are done.

For info, I have the VAR and AD V#s as V#30 and V#31.

If anyone uses this, let me know if it worked for you.

Cheers

Mark

I have the levels shown in the compact setting, but if you prefer the levels to be shown across the whole chart open up the chart and the flex levels settings and tick the override location and choose ALL and FULL from the drop down boxes.

The benefit of using the levels as flex levels is that if you draw any other lines etc on the chart and you want to delete them it doesn't effect the JSS levels. Also, when you roll over contracts there is no issue with the levels. I previously used a different method and couldn't get the levels to work once I rolled over the contract.

At the moment, I only trade CL and the flex levels are set up for CL. If you wanted to add any additional futures you would just need to amend the flex levels excel sheet symbol. If using more than one contract just cut and paste the whole lot below and change the symbol.

If using multiple symbols, you would need to have buttons at the top of the chart with different variables as each product will have a different AD (alert distance) and VAR (variable). You would require to amend the excel sheet to capture different V#s. I have not tried this, but the guys at IRT support (Chad and Shawn) are excellent and I'm sure they could help you with this. I can't recommend them enough as they have helped me so many times, especially with RTL programming and they go beyond the call of duty, so a special thanks to Chad and Shawn at IRT.

If anyone else is using JSS, let me know how you are getting on with it.

Cheers

Here's a chart from today for info. As you can see the market moves between the levels pretty much spot on with the main volume today trading at the DIR and CR+ with a break up to UP. For info there was just over 300 lots of liquidity bang on the CR+ when price pulled back to the CR+.

I have the levels set to compact, but these can easily be changed to spread across the whole chart by a couple of clicks of the mouse. If anyone would like the flex levels CSV file let me know and I can share, you just need 2 variables set up that you also need to change each day for the alert distances and variable levels. You just need to cut and paste the JSS levels from their excel sheet into the CSV file and if required change the VAR and AD via variables on your chart which you can have buttons on your chart. Once set up, takes minutes.

For anyone celebrating, happy thanks givings.

do you still use bookmap to look for liquity at the JS levels ...do they seem to line up and work well together...thanks for your hard work in this area

Hi Forgiven,
*
The oil industry is slowly picking up again, itís been a long downturn due to the price of crude and Iím currently back working as an Engineer on a 6 month contract so I havenít been trading and didnít get a chance to pull the trigger to trade live.* I will be looking to start up trading again in the future and I will certainly use JSS when I do. Timing on a personal level is just not possible as I was trying to trade from home with 2 young children and this was simply not possible, as they need your full attention if you are at home with them. Although not working in the oil industry allowed me to have a great time with my kids and I enjoyed every minute of it. But for now Iím back to the daily grind!
*
I stopped using bookmap and changed back to Jigsaw.* Both have their proís and conís and there are some advantages to both, which one you use really will depend on your own preferences and style of trading. For me the major selling point on Jigsaw is that they have a fantastic DOM, which bookmap lacks. I found this useful for timing my entry, especially to avoid trading when momentum is against you (unless that momentum is based on a stop run, which is easy to see on both platforms).

In answer to your question, yes I would look at liquidity around the JSS levels but you have to take any liquidity offered on the DOM with a pinch of salt, as the majority of liquidity shown tends to be fake.* When large liquidity shows up on the DOM I like to see how the market reacts. I prefer not to blindly just front run liquidity for entry (although sometimes I would front run large liquidity on an exit if my target had been met or close to my goal or perhaps take some of my position off - you can always get back in if need be!).

When you see large liquidity offered on CL it is definitely worth keeping an eye on to see how the market will react. There is no set rules for what will happen when the price meets the liquidity and I am of the opinion that when other large traders see this they may use it as an opportunity to exit or enter a trade with minimal slippage.

As an example, say the price has been moving down and there is large liquidity offered, which has been sitting there for most of the trading session for everyone to see and appears to be real but as the price almost reaches the liquidity it is pulled a few ticks away. For some traders, it is like seeing a bank vault door been left open with a sign on it saying free money so they keep selling into this level expecting the arse to fall out the market as now it looks like the market orders will easily eat through the lack of liquidity offered and price will keep moving down. However, as the price meets the level where that large liquidity was originally offered you start seeing a lot of aggressive iceberg orders absorbing all the sell market orders and then large buy market orders start coming in, the sellers are now exhausted and sweating as the price starts moving against them and they are now trapped as they got in at the worst price. Price continues to go up and then you start seeing rapid momentum when the sellers stops get hit fuelling further advance in price.

You have to be wary of the many liquidity games that can be played out, but reading the DOM helped me to see these kind of events. The only problem when I first started looking at the DOM was that I started trying to trade every move and I had to realise that it is just one of many tools in your arsenal and mainly I used it for improving entries/exits allowing me to reduce my risk. Generally, I would know when I wanted to focus on the DOM based on other entry or exit criteria unless I saw specific events unfold like the above example. Thereís a very fine balance that you need to find between all the tools and methods that you use.

What is more important around the JSS levels is to generally see high volume trading and where it is trading in relation to the current price, are the buyers or sellers accepting higher or lower prices? How is the the volume moving relative to recent activity. How is volume reacting to stop runs, etc.
