Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Very few threads on the internet, if not any, pertains to "bracketing the news trade" technique.
I wonder why?

I know you know why. haha....

I did it for about 3 months. Down 300.00 with a demo'd system that was very profitable for about 3 months.

NG/CL never got filled.

6E was OK. 6J was not enough volume and would always knock me out at a loss in live, unlike demo.

ES was worthless.

TF was dangerous.

CL always seemed the best, but it would never fill me and go right by or give me a small loss or small win even though it went 80 ticks!

I wasn't using this system as i Haven't read it, but I followed another groups system that they do so well on "SIM!"

Well...I appreciate the feedback.

It does look like Bill is bracketing the news trade. Not sure I completely understand why
you guys are saying that it is not talked about on the web or doesn't work? Maybe you can give more details??

The tradethespike.com system is $1,997.00....out of my range. I watched Bill do a "spike" live in
a webinar on Jan 7th. He did call his entries and it was a profitable trade and it was
a very quick trade.

Marker...I have also been watching your video's and reading your blog from start to finish. Good stuff.
I am thinking about joining your room....but don't want to get off topic.

bluemele...can you give more detail on how you were entering your trades? I don't understand how you
didn't get filled if you have your order in front of the market? Does it just go that fast and skip your trade??

Thanks again for your input and insight.
