"S&R" Scalps

Recommended Posts

Hi Walter,

 

The videos are great!! Thanks so much for taking the time to share this information. I'm really enjoying this stuff and look forward to seeing new videos. These videos are answering the questions I have about support and resistance. Thank you.

Hi Walter,

 

You mentioned about using tight stops, typically how large is your stop? Are your stops a few ticks behind the support and resistance line? How do you determine how much to risk on each trade as a scalper? Thank you.

Hi Walter,

Sorry for my Tarzan english by advance.

First, a big thank you for all your threads and all your videos very interesting.

But I have a small question, you say take 4 ticks in some places where between the upper and lower V, there are only 5 ticks.

What kind of front-end do you use to accomplish this feat ?

Would it possible to make a live video where we could understand how you take position and how you get out. I know it's difficult with the concentration, but perhaps a live simulation after you have made your daily target.

Thank you again for all your work.

Thanks Nyc, I will try to normally take a stop on -4 -5 max.. now one trick I got is that when things dont go my way I get out with 0 -1 or -2 stop... that helps a lot... the textbook stop should be below/above entry pivot, but when you develop some discernment that things are not working you may want to tight even more your stops... cheers Walter.

I use a DOM where you have a lot of features to get some exits automated once I entered manually... If I load more volume some things I do it manually... I am afraid making a video of this will not be possible as camtasia uses excesive resources... but basicly agon, you tell the DOM how many ticks profit you want from where you entered and he will do it automatically for you, if things are not getting there, I get out manually... playing with the DOM its key there... cheers Walter.

Thank's for you help, I understand playing with the DOM is the key.

I use ButtonTrader myself but I think it is very diificult to take 4 ticks where there are only 5 ticks to take.

This is the reason why a video help us, imho.

For ex : jperl (jerry) (nice guru on this nice forum) made a video with DOM, I think it is possible after your day target will made.

Give me time agon and I will try to make one... really if price was hit, you will get filled, when you see that you did not get filled and things get lazy, thats where you want to exit manually... I kind of understand what you are meaning on getting filled on so small range... sometimes happens, sometimes not... thats why I get out with +2 or +3 sometimes and still is good bussiness for me... cheers Walter.

Hey walter do you use your normal trigger for this trade? A couple of entries occur to me.

 

Limit at the line.

BO back below the line

BO of the bar that penetrated/touched the line.

 

I'd go with the first but suspect you might use the last :)

Hello fellow traders... Pipper asked me to show what chart I had been looking today for my scalping... So I will attach here the 22t principal

 

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=4459&stc=1&d=1197515271

 

 

I will have to make a confession... Its a little trick not suited for new scalpers yet and not recomended at the begining of this posible learning curve, as it could create confussion to the trader... I also do follow a 6 Tick chart for "very specific timing"...

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=4460&stc=1&d=1197515271

 

 

This things are not easy to diggest at the begining... but once really grasped they are really fun... see ya tomorrow on the chat... cheers Walter.

This is one of the S&R setups I will try to focus today... when we get to test an S&R key level expecting a bounce, BUT that bounce doesnt follow thru, we can expect a break of the level.... now instead of timing the entry after the break or in the break itself where you can get to much slipagge, I time right before the break... this can help for a tight stop management as well... good trading today ¡¡ see ya on our new chat room ¡¡

cheers Walter.

Hi Walter,

I've been reading your scalping threads with much interest. The above Tradestation code does not plot 2 lines however. I wonder if anyone else has the ADXVMA for Tradestation?

 

Thanks very much.

I only asked him for the 6 period setup. I'm sure he has the shorter timeframe and will share that also. These guys are great, you're in the right community for great info.

Here's a copy of the ADXVMA with 2 inputs, meaning you can have a sma,ema or hma added to the main plot line. However, if your trying to get a copy of Walter's chart, then leave the ma line to 1 and the additional line won't plot.

 

But you will have to insert the indicator onto your chart twice, one with an input of 2 and the other with an input of 6. ( for example )

 

Hope this helps

ps. Great thread Walter, excellent work. :cool:

Hi Walter! I hope that you are well.

 

I have some questions about the equivalence between the tick and minute charts.

 

I made a simple comparison between a tick charts and minutes charts in the EURJPY pair, and I found that there the 5 minutes chart is more less equivalent to the 22 tick chart, and the 1 minutes chart is more less equivalent to the 6 tick chart. But I suppose that it can be different depending on the volatility of the moment.

 

Do you have some equivalent similar to the one of my comparison? Why do you prefer to use tick charts insted minutes (or seconds) charts?

I use tick charts for scalping, its like tape reading on a chart, you get to see whats happening... minute charts are more for longer trades, they give a very nice longer view of whats going on, so having both its very recomendable as they have difernt functions... cheers Walter.

    • Date : 23rd August 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd August 2019.FX News Today A confluence of factors whipped the markets around Thursday heading into the Jackson Hole Symposium and Chair Powell’s comments Friday at 10 ET. Hawkish remarks from George (she dissented against the July easing) and Harker (who votes in 2020) weighed on Treasuries and erased early gains from Wall Street. Minutes from both Fed and ECB meetings were not quite the all out dovish signal that some had been hoping for and comments from Fed members yesterday also showed a degree of caution with regard to further easing measures. The curve in the US steepened again after inverting briefly overnight, the curve flattened and inverted further in Japan. Stock markets across Asia moved mostly higher although gains remained contained by caution. New Zealand’s central bank governor said he could afford to wait before declining on additional easing measures. Onshore Yuan set at its weakest for 11 years. Japanese core consumer inflation at a 2-year low in July. Meanwhile lingering geopolitical trade tensions and political jitters in Hong Kong, Italy and the UK add to an uncertain backdrop. US futures are also cautiously moving higher. The WTI future is trading at USD 55.37 per barrel. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD returned to 3-week lows of 1.1064 today, after rallying to session highs of 1.1099 following the sub-50 US manufacturing PMI. Negative European yields appear to be taking their toll on the currency, keeping the Dollar in demand in place for relatively high yielding US Treasuries. This has likely been a major factor keeping EURUSD under pressure, especially ahead of likely ECB easing in September, and perceptions that the Fed will not be as aggressive in easing as previously thought. Key EURUSD level is the 27-month low of 1.1027 seen on August 1. USDJPY rallied to 106.64 highs. The risk-sensitive pairing can be expected to consolidate into today’s much anticipated speech from Fed chair Powell, from Jackson Hole. GBPUSD: Sterling had its best single day rally since March 13 against the Dollar. Cable’s high was 1.2273, which is the loftiest level seen since late July. The gains were sparked by comments made by German’s Merkel, who indicated that a solution to the Irish border backstop conundrum is doable by the October-31 Brexit deadline. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson followed this up by saying at his joint press conference with France’s Macron that he was encouraged by his talks in Berlin yesterday, and that a deal, he thinks, can be done ahead of October 31. Macron, said, however, that while he has always respected the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the European project has to be protected, to which the Irish backstop remains an important part of ensuring this. Merkel’s remarks were little more than rhetorical platitudes, though enough to trigger a short squeeze in a heavy shorted currency. Main Macro Events Today   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2 Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments.
