SST / YM (Dow EMini)

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been testing the YM? I realize there is a demand for a good tradeplan with the YM and SST but I still have not been able to put something together that I feel good about. Sometimes I feel like I'm barking up the wrong tree. Compared to the Russell for example, I wouldn't touch the YM at this point. If you really feel you have to trade the YM, I would begin by using the Russell tradeplan, test it carefully in UTA and see how it looks. If I do come up with something I like, I'll post it right away.


Try the 305 tick chart for now. It's faster than the 377 and slower than the 233. I see a lot of good trades but I'm concerned about the win rate and the overall profitability at this point. I haven't looked at range or renko yet. That might be where the answers lie for this market.

    • Stitch Fix Inc $SFIX Tags Major Support Level, Buy Triggered   Shares of Stitch Fix Inc (SFIX) collapsed over 25% today on the back of poor earnings/guidance. The stock now finds itself trading below $20, down from a 52 week high of $52.50. While it appears to be doom and gloom there is some major light for technical traders. Stitch Fix tagged a major pivot low from June 2018 at $18.40 today. This pivot low signals a likely flush out of weak hands and the bounce signals accumulating by smart money. It would not be far fetched to see Stitch Fix trade back to $25 in the coming months.
