  1. You might want to take a look at the mini Nikkei and mini TOPIX. The mini Nikkei is a very liquid contract and the tick size is identical to the YM.


    If you want somthing slightly bigger like the ES, might want to look at the KOSPI traded on the KRX.


    Soultrader I called Trade Station 2 months ago and inquired about the Kospi and they told me it is not tradable in the US, are they correct or have things possible changed since my call to them?

  2. This is probably what you want:


    ^TTMSlingShot_SvE 10 and 20 EMA w BB


    Basically you are using faster periods (10, 20) on a slower Moving Average (EMA) versus slower periods (32.4, 61.8) on a faster MA (jtHMA).


    Using the Sevensa (_Sv) version of eld here because that has less problem with TS candlestick plots than the non-Sv version.



    One more time if you could. I have Jiriks MA installed on my machine, below is the code for the MA assuming you have JMA installed (which I do), could you modify the code to allow me to have the same outlook with the Jarik MA





    Plots JMA on price time series.

    User has option to enable dynamic coloring.

    This indicator shows best on a black background.




    series price time series

    length larger values makes JMA line smoother

    phase specifies tradeoff between lag and overshoot

    colorMode 0 : plot JMA line without dynamic color.

    1 : plot JMA line with dynamic color.






    length(7), { range: any non-negative value }

    phase(50), { range: -100 ... +100 }

    colorMode(0); { range: 0, 1 }



    float JMA(0);


    JMA = JRC.JMA.2k ( series, length, phase ) ;

    { JMA = JRC.JMA.flex.2k ( value1, length, phase ); --- alternate method for user defined variables }


    if colorMode = 1 then setplotcolor[1](1, iff( JMA<JMA[1], red, cyan ) );

    plot1 (JMA, "JMA");




  3. ISTJ


    I cannot imagine an extrovert daytrading. One of the great joys of trading is that I don't have to screw with anybody! No managers, no employees. Just me and the cat, sipping hot chocolate and doing battle with the forces of darkness that want to take my money.


    Your Type is ENTJ

    Strength of the preferences %

    Extraverted Intuitive Thinking Judging

    78 50 25 33


    Whatever your type is the important thing is to know how to spot your weaknesses and overcome them. As an example I have CNBC (Noise) on in the background, I also talk on the phone with other traders looking for setups, After exiting a trade I walk away from the computer and talk wit hmy lovely wife.


    Being a certain tyype doesnt exclude you from trading, when someone does nothing to adjust for it that is where the problem is.

  4. The hot topic on the news stations is "We ne to fix Wall Street". Well what about the Government, there is sooooooooooooo much waste it is silly. We need to put someone in charge that can take the country and run it like a business. Raising taxes isnt the answer, locating and fixing the problem is.

  5. First and foremost I agree with CandleWhisperer & HLM about price. I have spent countless hours looking at how markets move as well as the positions that I trade. As I decide that I want to look at adding a market to my list I will spend hours looking over price and patterns as well as time analysis looking for things to pop out at me.


    After price is fibonacci, as HLM mentioned the golden ratio, fibonacci has a pure relationship to the golden ratio. Everything around us has some relationship to fibonacci such as: a tweed pattern, a conch shell, the multiplication of rabbits, the pyramids, etc. It also works very well in trading.

  6. Hello all

    i'm just newbie.. i'm very interest anything about a system.

    but i never know if there have a great system.

    can anyone help me how to make a great system? :missy:


    Keep in mind there are no shortcuts to becoming successful in the art of trading. Each person has to do battle with the deamons inside themselves. Although having access to the information and traders here will be very VERY helpful you still need to do the work. It goes back to the tell, show, do method. You are the only one that can do it for you.


    With that being said it doesnt mean you have to go at it all alone, there are others that were in the same place as you that can help you along the way.


    Think of it like this, if you take a professional baseball team, the team works to help each other become the best they can be. But when a player gets up to bat he has to rely on his own abilities to get on base.


    There is no Holy Grail but hard work will get you there!

  7. Has anyone ever taken any trading classes or have any information on this trading school?


    I have not taken any classes from them but I do know someone that has.


    The thing that I like about their system compared to some others is you actually trade their money (in small dollar abounts) to learn what it is like to be in a trade. Most other companies use a tell show strategy, theirs is tell, show, do!

  8. I didn't realise it would be so difficult open an account with IB living outside the US!


    It appears they have a very strict criteria they are looking for in individuals.


    Have you inquired with IB on opening an account as a Corp. You can live outside the US and still own a corporation here. This might work for you. It might be an extra step but it might be worth it for you.
