@bobbyacim i hope you find your way to profitable daytrading,i post my trades all the time and my method is there for you for free as i created it for free as well as about 50 other methods all for free just sitting at my stupid computer watching price and thinking about what i was seeing and how i could visulize what i see for others to share...sharky

Sharky,
THANKS for your encouragement and your generosity. Evidently you are not only a good trader, but also a good human being. I am discouraged, but not discounted, YET.

I am currently trying Price divergence on 3 range(6E) and an RSI(set at 5, smoothing of 7) along with 50ema& 20ema. Looking for divergence signal near a bounce(pivot) off of either ema,(going in the direction of the 50EMA of course)

My R/R ratio is 6ticks/3 ticks( 2:1) incrementally moving up the stop to 2 ticks after 1 tick gain, then break-even after 2 ticks gain, then 4/2 and finally 5/1

Since I have a day job, I can trade the 6am to 9:00 time, otherwise i record the session in ninjatrader and sim trade it later than nite.

Will let you know.....

Aquarian1,

Your post proves my point. Did you read any of it? I did pass on some knowledge, but is was of the variety you don't want to hear.


Yes I read all your post.
You seem to be all upset about systems and people wanting to steal your "edge".
I have no interest in arguing, fighting or debating with you or anyone else, or "proving a point"

I was:
  1. happy for you that you are making money
  2. trying to get you to relax and enjoy it and life
  3. hoping you would understand I don't want you to share your stuff
  4. and offering you a very good book to read which you might both enjoy and find it of benefit in living a richer fuller life.

All the best to you.

I met a fella here in Texas that says he has written a software program that will pick winning numbers for the Texas Lottery. He sells the software for $9.95. He says no one knows about it because the State of Texas is doing everything they can think of to keep the information out of the press because it will cost them too much money paying every one if word gets out and they have even put out a contract on him out of desperation. In fact that is why he lives in a van parked down by the river .

Should I buy this software?

This post is meant purely for entertainment and should not be confused with a real thought.


I would get him to sell the software for free and then I would share the winnings with him. That would net the fella a whole lot more money. Oops wait I guess he was just selling "the dream"!

I give up trying to explain to him that he is looking in the wrong place. The original post was about spending $10,000, and not getting what he payed for. But he's still trying these same ideas. Give up already and throw all that stuff away. But that is not what he wants to hear.
