his will chronicle my Double Bollinger strategy which officially started trading on April 17th with a Long position. The strategy trades with 30 minute bars and is iTuned to Apple's explosive nature. The strategy employs two Bollinger bands, trades are opened when the outer band is breached, and closed when the inner band and moving average are breached. A Double sized position is taken with the opening trade, followed by two half-sized tranches to close the trade. The signals are based on breaches and regressions of volatility levels. The strategy runs on Tradestation and can be viewed on my daily YouTube Hangout from 9am to 4pm right here. The chart shows a consistent performance over 5 yrs, with very little drawdown. Commissions and slippage are included in the backtested results. The first tranche was taken today with an 8 point gain.
One benefit of Apple selling off today is that it's an excellent reminder to always Trade What You See, Not What You Think! No disrespect to the Apple fanboys, but I trade what the price and volume action tells me and keep emotions out of it. You should too... Ok, flame away!
