Mark Fishers "ACD Trading Method", Seminar Videos Wanted.

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I am not sure if anyone has read Mark Fishers book "the logical trader", but I recommend it for anyone who is interested in a opening range breakout strategy trading method.

 

Now the reason why I am writing this thread is because I am after his 2003 Nymex seminar that he did. Has anyone out there have a working web cast link of his videos? The old site does not work anymore, so I am asking if anyone has it stored on their computers or know where I can find a working link of it.

 

Any help will be much appreciated.

 

Regards

 

Simon

I searched high and low for Paul Tudor Jones talk at this but could never find a working link.

Maybe we should try emailing some NYMEX people or the host. It really is absurd for this stuff to not work, that had to be the best conference ever.

 

Are you actually trading using ACD? I've tried to read the book a few times but it never quite sinks in. Isn't there violatility calculations that Fisher doesnt provide that makes the book kind of pointless?

Hi Darthtrader,

 

I am in the testing phases of this strategy trading on a dummy account with interactive brokers using ensign as the charting software.

 

So far I am very happy with it, it is very logical to use and effective. I have incorporated other technical bits and pieces but mostly to confirm my signals.

 

Here is the dummy trades and chart for todays ES H8. The last one was a silly trade a very late entry, stupid trade but I knew that there was a 60 min stochasitc diveregence going down, I usally go the opposite when I see those from experience only on the last third wave you get the reversal.

 

With regards to Mark Fishers seminar I am going to email Mark or his Risk Manager directly, we will see if he answers my email.

 

Regards

 

Simon

Simon,

 

Have you previously seen the video? I watched it and took some good notes but in my opinion it was 80% ego (how proud Mark is of his own greed and competitiveness, etc. and I'm not knocking him here - like a man's man, he's definitely a trader's trader), 10% good trader training, and 10% substance on the actual method. My point is to assuage any of your concerns about the quality and direction of you life :) in the event you never ever get to see the video.

 

I've tried to read the book a few times but it never quite sinks in.
The book was written and the video produced to attract capital not to teach a method.

 

Isn't there violatility calculations that Fisher doesnt provide that makes the book kind of pointless?

Nor does he provide enough specifics in the video about the zone resets. It is most likely simply a volatility based (actually volatility related) re-optimization. Nothing elegant about programming that either - just loop through the range of all settings and use one just off the peak. re "pointless" - again, book's (and video's) purpose was to attract capital not explain a method.

 

The method itself takes a backseat behind sizing, execution, position management. It does not constitute the full method he personally trades on or off the floor. It is the method he has his hirelings apply because it keeps them out of trouble. The breakout methods of T.Crable, L.Williams, and more recently TheRumpleOne ('free' on the web, btw), etc can easily be substituted for ACD.

 

hth. all the best, zdo

Hi Zdo,

 

Thanks for the comment. I have only watched an introduction, yes I must agree Mark Fisher is a interesting person full of interesting stories. I just want to watch the full seminar so I can get the 10% substance nothing more.

 

With regards to his breakout method there is nothing special, there are others that use similar methods.

 

I think at the end of the day which ever trading style works consistently and suits your personality is the key.

 

Regards

 

Simon

Szymon;

 

I owe my Pivot Profile to Mark's work. I checked to see if the videos were there and they were not. But if you want some insight into ACD, there is a good thread I can recommend. PM me if you want to know where.

 

P.S. Check out my last chart on the VSA thread. Although it is not, it looks like a "fade the Aup trade".

DarthTrader - can you let me know if you find the Paul Tudor Jones talk - always worth listening to guys like him.

 

I'll try to email nymex this morning. this is the site

http://www.clicklive.com/NYMEX/symposium_2003/

 

Looking at that site just frustrates me...Jones, Boone Pickens, Fisher, Ari Kiev..it would just be so cool to see such heavy hitters actually talking. I wouldn't even care if Jones just talks the whole time about how much money he has! I think the problem might be though that the site shouldnt really be there and the clicklive stuff has just expired without taking the webpage down yet.

 

Interesting chart Szymon. I really need to do a study of the various ORB literature.

Pivot can you just post that thread here? If its on another board I don't think James really cares, its not like there is another site that can compete with this one. :)

Hi Darthtrader,

 

I have already contacted Nymex and they have not responded to my emails, same with MBFCC. The good news is that next week I should have all the Nymex videos plus more. I will see how this will work out.

Hi Ines,

 

I think http://www.4shared.com is much more better and faster than rapidshare.

 

Which videos do you have? Nymex 03 seminar? or some other ones?

I watched 1-3 of NYMEX so far. Really great stuff. I think it would certainly help to read the Logical Trader first. Alot of the concepts didn't make much sense to me but were much more clear here, plus he mentions the volatility calulation that he leaves out of the book.

His pivot moving average is an interesting idea. Almost like a moving average of the MP value area.

ines - should there be any files in the Unisfair 2007 folder? Or perhaps those are coming?

 

I had to convert the video to swf - its now uploaded to the folder.

A question for a regular user of ACD Trading method:

 

Do you find previous day's A,C,D levels act as support and resistance for

current day's trading ?

 

 

Thanks

Yes - but I feel rather the daily Pivot-Range-High and PRL act like that.

The reason I ask is that I am trying to look at today's ES low of 1363.5 and

besides Fib clusters, I am trying to find other levels from others sources to support it, be it MP, Pivots ...etc. All I can find is yesterday's C level from Fisher and the Low from 2 days ago. If yesterday's A.C.D levels mean anything, it will make the case that much stronger.

    • Date : 01st June 2020. Events to Look Out for This Week.Geopolitics are back in the picture giving the markets pause and adding another layer of uncertainty to a shaky global outlook. However other than US-China tension, next week the global data dockets are heavy and results are likely to underscore the cratering in global economies this quarter. The calendar includes the US Jobs Report and Monetary policy meeting from RBA, BOC and ECB.Monday – 01 June 2020 Caixin Manufacturing PMI (CNY, GMT 01:45) – The Caixin manufacturing PMI is expected to slightly improve to 49.6 from 49.4 in May. ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM index is expected to slip to 40.0 in May from 41.5 in April, compared to a recession-low of 34.5 in December of 2008. Tuesday – 02 June 2020   Interest Rate Decision & Statement (RBA, GMT 04:30) – The RBA meet and are unlikely to move rates below historic lows at 0.25%, as RBA Gov. Lowe is his recent statement repeated that negative interest rates extraordinarily unlikely. RBA will maintain its expansionary monetary policies until progress is made towards full employment and we are confident on inflation . Wednesday – 03 June 2020   Gross Domestic Product (AUD, GMT 01:30) – GDP is the economy’s most important figure. Q1’s GDP is expected to slow down at 0.3% q/q and 1.9% y/y. Unemployment data (EUR, GMT 07:55-09:00) – The German unemployment rate in May is expected to have increased to 6.2% from 5.8%, while unemployment change is expected to have declined to 194K from April’s 373K. Meanwhile, Eurozone’s April unemployment rate should rise to 7.7% from 7.4% last month. ADP Employment Change (USD, GMT 12:15) – Lasts month, ADP report revealed a -20,236k April drop that undershot the -19,520k private payroll decline by -716k. For May a -9,000k drop is seen, since nearly all measures of activity rose in May from a trough. ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM-NMI index is expected to rise to 46.0 from 41.8 in April. Most producer sentiment reports should show May rebounds after huge April declines due to mandatory closures, on top of the demand hit initially associated with the pandemic, and the oil price plunge with the OPEC price war, as re-openings are underway in most states. The April drop in the ISM survey was much smaller than the declines seen in other measures, however, and this is why we expect a further drop in May for that measure. Interest Rate Decision and Monetary Policy Statement (CAD, GMT 14:00) – On April 15, the Bank held rates steady at 0.25%, matching widespread expectations. In the next policy statement, the BoC is expected to leave rates unchanged, the Bank of Canada Governor Poloz said is his last interview that negative rates are needed only in extreme conditions. Thursday – 04 June 2020   Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45 & 12:30) – Given that Lagarde buried any hope of a “mild” recession, the stage seems set for an extension of the PEPP program in size and duration at next week’s council meeting with an end date next year giving the economy more time to recover and EU aid programs to come into effect. Given that the ECB is no longer putting much hope in a quick recovery it is already clear that with the current time frame until the end of December that would risk a sharp widening of spreads in the second half of the year, when there is also the risk of a second wave of Covid-19 infections. Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:30)– US initial jobless claims contracted last week by -323k to 2,123k in the week ended May 23 after tumbling -241k to 2,446k previously. Claims have been declining since surging to 6,867k in the March 27 week. Friday – 05 June 2020   Event of the Week – Non-Farm Payrolls (USD, GMT 12:30) – A -2,200k May nonfarm payroll drop is anticipated, following a -20,527 April collapse, and a -701k drop in March. The jobless rate should rise to 17.5% from 14.7% from April, versus 4.4% in March. Nearly all measures of activity rose in May from a trough just after the April BLS survey week, but the initial and continuing claims data suggest a weaker labor market in mid-May than mid-April. Average hourly earnings are assumed to fall -1.0% with a partial unwind of the April distortion from layoffs being concentrated in low-wage categories. This would translate to a drop in the y/y gain to 6.6% from 7.9%. Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada employment plunged -1993.8k in April, nearly doubling the -1010.7k tumble in March to leave a massive and rapid reversal in the labour market as firms cut jobs as most of the economy ceased to function amid the stay at home orders the began around the middle of March. For May employment should revealed a 4,000k drop in jobs, doubling again last months number. B]Always trade with strict risk management.
