Applying Joe Ross Trading Methods

Recommended Posts

I had taken a 3 day private tutoring session with Joe Ross in 2011. Up until that time, I was struggling as a trader. After taking the private session with Joe, I have started to make money trading.

 

While I am not able to share the methods that Joe Ross taught me, I would like to share my trading log with you in order to keep myself focused and disciplined.

 

I would appreciate any discussion, comments, or questions that you may have. I am continually humbled by the markets on my path to becoming a more profitable trader.

 

Thank you.

Hi, nice of you to post your log....what would also help struggling traders is if you would provide an approximate budget...so that they can have a realistic idea of what an effective education costs....

 

Thanks,

Steve

Steve,

 

Thank you for your reply. I can attest that having a mentor is very important especially if someone is struggling. I paid a few thousand dollars for a private session. Paying for someone's time runs on the more expensive side, but will save you money in the long run.

thx.

zdo,

 

Yes. I read Daytrading, Trading Is a Business, and Trading By the Book. After reading them, I was so confused that I emailed Joe Ross about them. After many back and forth emails, and a third party's recommendation, I decided to go meet him for a private 3 day session. He straightened me out trading wise, and I began making money as a trader.

 

In order to stay disciplined and focused, I thought that posting my daily trading log would help me follow my trading plan.

 

Thank you.

handle,

 

re: "After reading them, I was so confused". What was confusing to you in the books?

 

Some questions about his training (, not his trading...)

 

How is his personal instruction different from his books?

 

In his personal instructing,

1 ) does he have a progression from the 'beginner training' mode of taking a 'fixed' x number of ticks from each entry (ex: looks like you're taking 10 from cl ) to larger and variable 'targets' ? ... and

2 ) does he (progressively or not ) add any 'filtering' to taking the signals into his training.?

 

Thanks.

zdo,

 

For me, the books seemed hard to follow. I thought they were informative, but not specific enough for me to trade from. The concepts on management, wisdom, patience, etc. were very helpful for the mental part of trading. But I needed more. I was new to trading and trading seemed like a foreign language to me.

 

In his personal training, he:

1. scalps for daytrading. For swing and longer term trading he lets the market take him out with a trailing stop. I only daytrade so am scalping only.

2. He does not use indicators or filters, but he teaches discretionary trading, which by definition uses experience and intuition as built in filters. He does not take some trades that I take, for example, because he did not like the way it looked. His win ratio is better than mine, but my ratio has a positive expectation and is sufficient enough to make money.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Thank you.

handle,

 

Thanks for the info. I’m curious because I read Ross in the early 90’s and didn’t get much out of it for “discretionary” trading… however, later I did circle back to some of his (very code-able) ‘patterns’ for intraday automation setups. Imo, beginning short time frame traders are not wasting their time studying Joe’s work…

 

You’re lucky you have the pre-existing aptitudes and inclinations to be able to see ‘mkt representations’ (ie charts, etc.) very similar to how he sees them. Most one on one trainings, actually most of all trading education, is rarely a match with the trainee’s true nature… (but can always be seen as a stepping stone… :) )

…and meanwhile, the anti-vendor detractors will pop in to essentially say ‘if it ain’t good for everybody, it ain’t any good for anybody”…

 

Repeating an earlier question ( – re the “scalps”)

"In his personal instructing,

1 ) does he have a progression from the 'beginner training' mode of taking a 'fixed' x number of ticks from each entry (ex: looks like you're taking 10 from cl ) to larger and variable 'targets' ?"

Thanks

 

All the best.

zdo,

 

He does not view scalping as 'beginner training'. He views intraday trading or day trading as a scalping environment, so fixed targets. The larger and variable 'targets' are for interday or swing trading. He teaches both targets depending on your time frame and risk tolerance.

 

Thank you.

I understand . Thanks for clarifying.

 

I was using the term 'beginner training' based off his previously published materials and forum postings in reference, not to the scalping methods, but to the setting profit targets (and stops) parts and the question was about what he is teaching now vs what he was teaching then...

 

 

 

 

So alternate reply to

would be

 

maybe not anymore... but it still seems that

He does view scalping as the 'starting point'

zdo,

 

I am not sure if he used to teach something differently. I do know that for daytrading he scalps or picks his target. Maybe in his prior education, he did not discuss daytrading.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Thank you.

    • ANNUAL FORECAST FOR EURJPY (2022) EURJPY Annual Forecast – Price Is Set to Scale New Heights With a Bullish Flag Formation The annual forecast for EURJPY is for it to scale new heights, having conformed to a bullish flag formation. The bullish flag formation, an offshoot of the triangle pattern, began towards the tail end of 2020 as bulls began to exercise dominance in the market. The market began to recover from the 116.910 support level in May 2020. It pulled back when it first hit the upper border of its triangle pattern and surged through it at the second time of asking, thereby leading to the creation of the flag pattern. EURJPYJPY Significant Zones Supply Zones: 134.150, 140.650, 149.010 Demand Zones: 113.920, 116.910, 127.630 EURJPY Long Term Plan: Bullish A bearish impact is visible annually in the market, notably since 2013. Every time EURJPY makes a bullish move, the move is cut off prematurely and it always leads to a plunge back around the 113.920 demand level. This happened from 2013 to 2016, and then from 2017 to 2020. The result is a triangle-tapered market structure. By June 2020, the price hit the 116.910 demand level and began another ascent, but this time, it eventually broke the triangle pattern on 2021 New Year’s Day. The flag pole was formed as the price surged from 120.920 and was stopped abruptly at 134.150. Subsequently, EURJPY began cranking through a downward channel. This continued into the year 2022. The market forecast is for an upward liquidity flow. The upward signal of the MA Cross is still very valid. Meanwhile, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence indicator is showing dwindling bullish bars. This is due to the downward ranging in the market. Its signal lines remain above the zero level. EURJPY Medium Term Plan: Bearish In early 2022, prices are set to drop after hitting the upper border of the ranging channel. The MA Cross is directed down-sideways to show the undulating nature of the current market. The same can be said for the MACD indicator. The annual forecast is towards the end of the year 2022 into early 2023 when the bullish flag pattern is anticipated to drive the market upward towards 140.650. Source: https://learn2.trade
