Penny stocks don't behave the same way as regular stocks or other quotes instruments. No public quotes and liquidity is the obstacle. Even if you do well, you won't be able to take that with you to trade other areas. Good luck.

Hiya,

 

Pretty much stumbled on this site today, and it looks great :) Looks like there are a few familiar nicks here as well, which is always good to see. Personally trade only forex and primarily cable, from an intraday perspective. Hope to interact on the forums over the coming weeks.

Hi there

 

Nice site! Very informative

 

I am a plain vanilla fib trader. Love ER2

 

Congratulations soultrader for a nice-clean cut site.

 

Regards

 

Hey Sniper welcome to the site,

 

I have been noticing the afternoon 50% retracements lately in the ER2, almost picture perfect. What kind of setups do you like to play?

Hey Sniper welcome to the site,

 

I have been noticing the afternoon 50% retracements lately in the ER2, almost picture perfect. What kind of setups do you like to play?

 

 

Thanks Tingull and Mr paul for the warm welcome!!

 

My battleground is 5 minutes chart. I also look for the daily chart for overall trend and 60 minutes for intraday swings.

 

I have a set of rules fitted to my trading style As the fibs, simple yet powerful. I play fibs in it's pure form, no indicators whatsoever. I am a full time trader. I also look for extensions if they fit my strategy. Sometimes they don't.

 

I also use time cycles as well.

 

Took me a long time to understand the significance of fibs retracements and when I did it the feeling was good.

 

Mr. Paul, yes afternoon retracements has been present lately on ER, mostly on the downside.

 

Always amuses me the simplicity of the fibs.

 

Of course I respect other's traders opinions and strategies. A you know, fibs are not the holy grail. But they bring food to my table consistently.

 

Looking forward to hear and learn from you guys as well!!!

 

Regards

      Hi Everyone,
      A lot of people are investing in the stock market as a preparation for retirement days. Yes, it is one primary reason why you should start getting involved in the world of trading but there are other valid reasons you might need to look at. Investing in the stock market means for most people, securing their immediate future and of course hoping that along the way, they earn a considerable amount of cash. Investing in the stock market could give you the power and means to possibly buy the home you've always wanted. While you do not essentially need the full money upfront, you still need the money for down payments to lower down the interest and get a good deal. With a better deal, you will pay less over the years you need to complete to pay the house in full. It also means that you will have immediate equity in your home as an additional bonus. Another good benefit of investing in the stock market is you are not only preparing your future but as well as your children's future. Winning big in the market possibly set up scenarios in which you could send your kids to college for them to start establishing their careers and make their dreams and your dreams a reality. This is yet another long term goal but not that long compared to retirement.

      Here is a quick educational video we created on Options on Futures.

      The main goal of this thread is to show what Power Trades is and how it works in different markets. We will show some patterns on the ES and NQ futures, as well as discuss possible improvements to this functionality.
      What is Power Trades?
      Ok, first we will consider what the Power Trades is and how it finds zones.
      Power Trades shows the zones with the execution of a large number of orders in a very short time, which will affect the price change with a high probability.
      Here are a few examples of how it looks like


      How it finds zones?
      There is a continuous process of placing, changing and executing orders in the market. All this affects the price change and the expectations of traders regarding the future price.
      When a large order appears at a certain level, the price is more likely to come to this order and it will be executed because the market is always looking for levels with liquidity. This already applies to the order flow and the mechanics of orders matching, so we will omit the principles on which the orders are matched.
      It is only important to understand that "abnormal events" occur in the market at certain times. Execution of a significant volume of orders in a very short time is one of such events.
      The Power Trades Scanner has several important settings that directly affect the results:

      Total Volume — the minimum value of the volume that should be traded during the specified time interval
      Time Interval, sec — the time over which the Total Volume should be traded
      Basis Volume Interval, sec — this parameter shows how much % took the traded volume in the total volume for the specified time.
      Zone Height, ticks — this parameter will show only those zones where the height is less than or equal to the specified value (in ticks).
      Level2 level count — the number of levels that are involved in the calculation of Imbalance and the Level 2 Ratio column in the table of results.
      Filter by Delta,% — the parameter will show zones that have a delta value greater than or equal to that specified in the setting. The value must be specified by the module, so the table will show both positive and negative delta values. We recommend paying attention to the zones with the delta above 50% (taking into account the specifics of each trading instrument).
      For example, let's set the Total Volume of 2000 contracts and Time Interval in 3 seconds on the E-mini SP500 futures. This means that the scan will be based on the available history and will show on the chart only those zones that have such a volume for the specified time.

      Additionally, it is worth to set a delta value to filter out the zones with one-side trades. The more delta value, the high probability that the price will reverse.

      So, as a starting point about this scanner, I think this information will be enough

    • Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Platinum COT Change (52W) / C - 18%, LS – 20% / FTG Score / D -7.4, W -19.4, M -16.1 / The larger than average change in Large Specs and Commercials positions, together with the negative reading from FTG suggest we could see some weakness from platinum in the coming days… Bitcoin (CME) COT Extreme / LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D 25.0, W 60.3, M 24.5 / We do not have such a history of cot data to be certain that we have cot signal that we can act upon, nevertheless it is interesting to see Large specs continuing to increase their net short positions, seeing Commercials net short and only Small specs taking the long side of the market. The all time extreme signal in LS would be generally considered a bullish signal, small spec net long a bearish FTG scores, especially the weekly show significant support for further rally in the market. Canadian Dollar COT Extreme / C - 72, LS – 68 report COT extreme / FTG Score / D 37.5, W -26.2, M -25.7 / In the past few weeks we have witnessed traders changing their positions towards a more bearish situation. The example from May 2017 to October the same year suggests that we could see this trend continuing for some time before the market dips back down. Daily FTG scores seem to back this, although the weekly and monthly already expect changes happening to the CAD. All the best,  Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
    • Bitcoin Price Prediction: Long-term (BTC) Value Forecast – July 20   BTC/USD Long-term Trend: Ranging Resistance  $10,500, $11,000, $11,500 Support levels: $10,000, $9,500, $9,000   The BTC/USD pair had been trading in the bearish trend zone after facing resistance at the $13,000 overhead resistance level. On July 10, the BTC price reached a high of $13,000 but was resisted. The bears broke the 12-day EMA and the 26-day EMA as the price fell to the bearish trend zone. In the previous resistances, the price fell within the bullish trend zone. On the upside, if the bulls break above the EMAs, the crypto’s price will rise to retest the $13,000 resistance level.   On the other hand, if the bulls fail to break above the EMAs.  the crypto's price  will commence a range bound move below the EMAs,Meanwhile, the MACD line, and the signal line are above the zero line which indicates a buy signal.     The views and opinions expressed here do not reflect that of BitcoinExchangeGuide.com and do not constitute financial advice.

    • Deal Butler was an excellent trading system/forecaster with about 85% accuracy.  it worked very well until the 5th anniversary when it suddenly shut down.  i guess Mac X had made his and moved on.  i am surprised no one has resurrected the system in the intervening 10+ years since shutdown. 
    • The only thing I'd disagree with is "compared to a trend following approach." Many Ultra systems were fully or partially trend-following.  And I haven't seen any trend-following systems (not counting over-optimized with little real-time exposure ) that have worked very well over the last 15 years. The only one I use is a simple one with a very unique filter (not found in Ultra or anywhere else to my knowledge). But the UltraFS systems are as good as any of the trend-following strategies I'm aware of.
    • I pefer to consider how decisive the candle is when looking at the market sentiment at that exact moment. I think it's a more reliable source of information.
