Drummond Geometry

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I have started this thread to discuss more about Drummond Geometry trading style.

 

I have been using this method for the last year and I must say it is very logical way of trading.

 

I will post some articles by Ted Hearne to start of.

 

It would be good to get more P&L traders to join this thread.

 

Regards

Simon - I hope the thread can get off the ground for you as I've often heard about Drummon, but never got into it myself. A good trader friend of mine attempted to learn it, but he felt is was not working for him. My understanding is that it takes quite a while to learn, so I'm sure that turns some people off.

Hi Brownsfan,

 

I must admit it is hard to learn at first, I only started to grasp the main principles after I went over the 1-5 lessons the second time. The PLDot push and refresh principle is just great especially when you use it using multiple time frames just gold.

 

The PL dot is nothing more than a 3 day moving average of High,Low and Close moved forward in time by one bar.

I will do my best to chip in here. I don't trade P&L per se however any instrument that I do trade I have a P&L workspace set up for it.

 

One of the issues with P&L is the NDA. Whilst I am pretty sure it's un enforceable I do respect the sentiment behind it. Having said that, certain things clearly fall outside as they are in the public domain anyway (11's are floor pivots for example). Other things I feel it's OK to speak about in a broad context.

 

I have made a few posts here in the past about Drummond if you are interested.

 

Cheers.

Hi all,

 

I am a newby to this forum (nice site by the way !) but I am an experienced trader,and have used Drummond's work for quite a while. I find it logical and usually very reliable. I have signed their non-disclosure and respect it but I think I can probably answer a lot of questions without revealing things that they want me to hold close to the chest. Let me know if I can help.

A good geometric lean and lesson one is all that is needed to make money. KISS

 

Indeed! Having said that there is such a huge amount of information it is easy to get confused! When you buy the course you are essentially getting Drummonds lifes work.

 

One of the most valuable things (imho) is the treatment of multiple timeframes (particularly in respect to types of trading).

 

It is a comprehensive piece of work that rewards study (in my case it took many thousands of hours to really 'get' it). But as you rightly say you can take one idea or concept and trade it successfully. Recognising this requires some maturity as a trader however. I like some of the basic geometry too, 11's & 5x's are very traceable, especially if they line up right with the envelope and pldot.

Hi All,

 

Does anyone use any other software than Tradestation for Drummond Geometry?

 

Im using multicharts at the moment but do not like how the higher time frame pldots and envelopes are drawn on the lower time frame windows.

 

I have attached a screen image of my chart.

I am using MC too. In the past I wrote the indicators for Ensign (too slow) and NeoTicker. Funnily enough I was thinking about doing a Ninjatrader version but it dosen't handle bars bigger than intraday particularly well (imo).

 

What don't you like about HTP dots envelopes?

Hi Blowfish,

 

Well the problem is that it does not show in stairstep format, just like the Tradestation.

 

I have attached a sample what I am looking at, I have enquired with TS they game some dll link file to connect and do it another way, but it is way to complicated, maybe someone knows how to use global variables in Multicharts.

Thanks Blowfish,

 

Excellent Chart just brilliant!

 

So tell me Blowfish how can I correct those HTF to look normal on the LTF.

 

Your help will be much appreciated.

Basically you need an indicator that is working on the group of bars x bars back. I am unfamiliar with the newer Drummond indicators but back in the day they used to be called things like 'DGII Pldot' or some such for Intraday on Intraday. It looks like you are plotting the 'DGLII Pldot' which is the live (or developing) version.

Hi Blowfish,

 

OK I have played and played, this is the best I can come up with. It looks good to me.

 

There are four time frames on this one, the dark red(brown) is the daily with the live dot as the white line.

 

Next I am going to put in the RU and Su zones from the 1 hourly and daily followed by the 6s and 5s points.

OK Next Question to all Drummond Geometry traders.

 

I am trying to program in Multicharts the Hi and Low 11 Zones.

 

Can someone post a chart of yesterdays CME EUR currency 10Min with the High and Low 1-1 zones on it.

 

Need to check if my formula is correct.

Hi Blowfish,

 

Thanks for your help.

 

I have setup my charts with most of the Drummond information, I am sure the coding can be improved but for now, it looks very good to me.

 

To all those people who are reading this thread - there is a lot of information on this chart and probably confusing, but if you studied Drummond Geometry it will all make sense.

 

Good Trading to all.

 

Simon

Have to use TS...I have heard about MC, NT etc etc...have most of them.

 

But TS is a programmers concern, the original DG indicators for intra-day never were accurate, trust me here on this one.

 

With all due respect, why should we trust you? What kind of studies/evidence do you have?

    • GBPUSD Eyes Further Upside Pressure On More Bull Pressure   GBPUSD with the pair remaining biased to the upside more strength is expected in the days ahead. Support lies at 1.3100 area with a break below that level turning focus to the 1.3050 level. Further down, support comes in the 1.3000 level where a violation will shift focus to the 1.2950 level. Below here will open the door towards the 1.2900 level. On the upside, resistance is located at the 1.3200 with a break above there allowing for morel strength to build up towards the 1.3250 level. Further out, resistance stands at the 1.3300 level followed by the 1.3350 level. On the whole, GBPUSD retains its broader upside pressure.    
    • Yes, AMP is a good and reliable broker. Almost all FCM brokers and their IBs provide a similar service (the main difference is commission per side or per round, min deposit. Also, margin requirements, but commonly they are similar) Quantower platform allows to trade futures with AMP via Rithmic technology with full market depth data (!)

    • Date : 4th December 2019. FX Update – December 4 – Risk Off – 4th December 2019.AUDJPY, H1The Yen has rallied on a safe-haven bid as global stock markets turn lower after President Trump, nearly two months after announcing the limited “Phase 1” trade deal with China, said that trade negotiations may be postponed until after the 2020 presidential election. This after announcing intentions to tariff steel imports from Brazil and Argentina. Disappointing Q3 GDP out of Australia, a country that is highly exposed to the US-China trade, was also in the mix. Growth came in at 0.4% q/q in the antipodean economy, against a median of 0.5%. USDJPY printed a 13-day low at 108.43, while EURJPY and AUDJPY descended into respective one-week low territory and is the biggest moving pair today, down some -0.6%. The Australian Dollar has been the day’s biggest loser out of the main currencies. AUDUSD more than reversed gains seen yesterday on the less dovish than expected RBA statement, in making a low of 0.6814. The AUDJPY triggered lower yesterday on the Crossing EMA Strategy, H1 at 13:00 GMT (1) move down to T1 (2), retraced to Entry (3) to close T2 flat. It then triggered lower again (4) and moved to T1 (5) and T2 (6) for a net move of 47 pips for both legs lower.The Dollar, outside the case of USDJPY, has held firm, finding its own safe haven bid. The sharpest in six months drop in the U.S. 10-year T-note yield yesterday was a reflection of this safe haven bid, which is why forex markets haven’t been trading on yield differential dynamics in the latest phase. Both EURUSD and Cable both drifted moderately lower, before a bid on Sterling saw cable breach 1.3000 and trade over 1.3040 and post a new six month high. Elsewhere, EURCHF has dropped for a third consecutive trading day, this time hitting a three-week low at 1.0923. The decline in the cross have correlated with the prevailing risk-off phase that started at Friday’s release of disappointing U.S. manufacturing ISM data.Always trade with strict risk management.
