No B.S Day Trading

Recommended Posts

I think John Grady's e-book is a fair deal at $40. Grady is now offering webinars too. Jack Broz also offers order flow training at:

TradeBondFutures.com

 

I agree that this style of trading is not for everybody (myself, for example). I am still using order flow in my projects, but I am relying on automation to do the parts that I am not very good at. I have no plan at this time to buy any trainings or mentorships, as those get expensive fast and emphasize adopting the vendor's style. I figure at some point I need to start thinking for myself.

Hello everyone,

 

This course (book + videos) came to my attention last week. It seems to fill a few gaps in my knowledge base and covers stuff I`m interested in learning more about.

 

NO BS DAY TRADING - No BS

 

Anyone here who`ve read it yet?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

HighStakes

I think its a good question. Most of the books out there add little to our knowledge so checking if at least one person thinks it's good is sensible - its not the price of the book necessarily; we also have to invest the time to read it.

 

Lovely city Oslo; I was a little disappointed by Copenhagen but Oslo was as clean and beautiful as a European Capital deserves to be.

Al Brooks has three new price action books soon to be released. I'm betting they will help greatly to decrypt and expand on his first, horribly edited effort.

 

So, the money is probably better spent learning re-edited and expanded price action tips from Al who keeps it visually as simple as possible with a plain 5 min chart and a 20 ema than some Generation X-er with a potty mouth.

Al Brooks has three new price action books . . .

I tend to cringe when I hear the phrase "price action", because if you ask 10 people what they mean by it, you get at least 14 definitions. In general, if a trader is monitoring a chart (5 minute or otherwise), he is not doing what I consider to be "reading order flow". That's not to say there is anything wrong with trading from charts. I have used charts in the past.

 

"Tape reading" is another phrase that's often interpreted in many ways. Traditionally, it meant charting price moves, and had nothing to do with reading a Time & Sales display. That's unfortunate but understandable, since computers had not been invented yet.

I appreciate the input, rwk.

 

I`ve read well over 100 books on trading and extensively studied half of them. Knowing that 80-90% of what is written on trading is mostly useless and recycled garbage from guys who don`t know how to trade, I`m usually fairly critical, especially when it comes from some online vendor where the barrier for releasing something is pretty much non-existent.

 

The other thing is that I`m not so sure how reliable reading order flow is in a market such as S&P, considering arbitrage and program trading.

 

I`m intimately familiar with the works of Al Brooks. I read his book twice and then re-wrote it on the third time in a language I could understand. Learned a lot from him and myself:)

 

SpideySense,

 

When did you visit Oslo? I`m actually embarrassed over our capital as parts of it is dirty and full of visible drug abuse,etc.

 

Glad you liked it though. Parts of it is truly beautiful :)

 

Kind regards,

This was reccomended by one of the traders at a trading arcade I used to trade at. As a trader it made very good sense, then as a Broker taking orders of Investment Bank Traders either for their Clients or on a proprietary basis the article made even more sense. Good value for money and excellent.

IMHO, price action apply to both charts and order flow. Just in different ways:

in candles/bars (charts) and in figures (order flow)

    • This is an absolute truth. You will not become a millionaire in a week. That doesn't happen in forex if you are a small fish like most of people here. Be patient and study as much as possible.
    • Date : 27th March 2020. FX Update – 27 March 2020.USDJPY, H1The Dollar declined and then recovered some of its losses, which saw the narrow trade-weighted USDIndex print a nine-day low at 99.15 before recouping levels back above 99.40. At the lows, the index was showing a correction of 3.2% from the 38-month high that was seen last week, which can be credited to the Fed’s ultra-aggressive dollar printing activity. There has also been a side theme of pronounced losses in USDJPY and Yen crosses, which look out of sync with the usual correlative pattern in light of a backdrop of mostly-higher stock and commodity markets in Asia today (which often times, especially in the prevailing crisis, would be associated with a softening in the Japanese currency). The demand for Yen was reportedly driven by repatriation of Japanese investment funds, according to several market reports and narratives, even though the timing — just a few days before Japan’s financial year end — seems a little strange. USDJPY, aided by broad Dollar weakness, dropped by about another 1% in printing a one-week low at 108.25. EURJPY, AUDJPY and most other Yen crosses declined, too, which amounted to a correction. Subsequently, the Yen gave back up to half of its gains as the European interbank market picked up the reins, and expectations, should risk appetite hold up, the Yen could soften from here. The USDJPY and the crossing EMA strategy (H1) closed out in the last hour as the 9-period EMA was broken at 108.89 from an entry at 111.14 on March 25, a 220 pip move.Elsewhere, EURUSD edged out a 10-day high at 1.1088, before ebbing back under 1.1050. Cable printed an eleven-day high, at 1.2306. As for the coronavirus, the exponential rate of new cases has continued. Cases in the US have surged, and it might be several weeks before the fruits of the global lockdown is seen. Few are now expecting a V-shaped economic recovery out of this, such as was seen following the SARS epidemic in Asia in 2003. The key question is how wide the “U” will be in a U-shaped recovery? An old market adage has always been to, never try to catch a falling knife.Always trade with strict risk management.
