How to Create Your Own Trading Method: Revealed!

Recommended Posts

Sensationalist attention grabbing titles aside, I do have something to say. I see so many people searching for the holy grail of technical analysis. A technique that if applied properly, will lead to untold riches! Yet that which people are looking for is often right before them. However, blinded by all these methods:-

 

Market profile, Elliott Wave, MACD, Super lightspeed multi timeframe sequential frequency stochastical kick F*****G ass indicator :o!

 

they will usually miss the point. In the hands of a capable trader, a moving average can be applied profitably. A less than should we say brilliant trader, will likely lose whatever they try. This isn't to say that a trader doesn't need to "find a method that fits" as is often said. It's that to find a method that fits requires each one to be tested and applied with true professionalism and intent.

 

Simple things that this entails:-

 

1- Formulate a method of technical analysis which looks at specific elements of the market. Make sure each item you add is there for a reason and keep things clear.

 

2- Know what is going on in the bigger picture of the market and at least have a basic understanding of the auction to help you identify the current conditions and therefore appropriately apply any strategy you may have.

 

3- Use your analysis to monitor the market and note down observations. Research your ideas for strategies to exploit certain aspects you see recurring time and time again.

 

4- Work out sensible risk:reward/position sizing for your strategy and monitor its performance over time with these conditions applied.

 

5- Work out a method of trade selection. When do you take a trade and when do you pass on it? If you don't, you may find you are constantly kicking yourself when you pass up great trades and are stuck in trades which suck and you knew at the time you shouldn't have entered.

 

6- Stick to your carefully considered plans!! If you don't, you have no way of telling whether the method works or not.

 

Overall, people have to realise that there is no right and wrong in trading other than consistent p/l. In my experience, those who "make it" have a dedicated professional attitude rather than some uber method which just works.

Goodmorning,

 

my experience is find a professional reliable analist that tells you at least which way it will trend for the next week.

If you know you can trust him make the trades in the direction of that trend regarding the indicators ofcourse.

 

Todays computer trading is so fast that you need a proven strategie with lot of disciplin.

So I never trade during the first hour after the opening of the exchange!

Hi Mar,

 

I don't know about following analysts. The thing for me is having a good understanding myself and not to rely on someone else. Maybe it would be easier to find a bad one and do the opposite to what they say! Also, there are lots of people who trade ONLY in the first hour. Take your pick, but make sure you are thoroughly prepared for however you trade.

      Hello everyone!
      I am an advanced trader, with many years of experience (about 15 years - 10 living exclusively from this)
      I am going to give you some tips that you must know:
      There are going to be many people who tell you that trade is easy, that with only crossiing a line  with another one you will win a lot of money.... and that´s not true.  No, Sir, reality is far away from that. Many people who start arrive here with the hope that someone "gives them" a free method, they watch youtube videos thinking that this will give them the "strategy" and in a few days they realize that it does not work for them - they lose money - and then They go looking for a new one ... and so on. YES, IT´S TRUE YOU EARN IN TRADING, A LOT. BUT THINK: for a few to win (10% + any BROKER) many others must lose (90% people). YOU MUST HAVE A MONEY MANAGMENT FORMULA ( you can email me) People study so many years to live on this, not because they are dumb, but to know what they do, when, and have absolute effectiveness. It´s very easy to get lost here: do not disperse, jumping from one to another strategy WILL NEVER give you money, it will only waste your time and make you nervous when trading. PEOPLE WHO CHANGE THEIR METHOD CONSTANTLY : LOOOOSE ALWAYS.   If you have the knowledge to develop it, take your time and do it.  Always try it first on DEMO for at least 2 weeks! If not: search to buy a solid strategy (no you tube videos pleassse ! Avoid losing money! ) This is like any business, it requires some capital to start (capital = money in the broker + solid made /purchased strategy) If you are lost: I RECOMMEND YOU NOT TO WASTE TIME IN YOUTUBE, JOIN PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCE AND IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY A METHOD ... PLEASE !!!! DO NOT BUY 10 BAD AND CHEAP METHODS, SAVE MONEY AND BUY ONLY 1 BUT EXCLUSIVE AND MUST ALLWAYS HAVE SUPPORT !!!!!  Do not buy Signals! They never keep up with constant profits! One week will win and the next will lose. Nothing that does not depend absolutely on you will give you the money you are looking for. And if you do not have a strategy (made or purchased) do not even try PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE: DO NOT USE REAL MONEY! AT LEAST 2 WEEK DEMO FREE HELP HERE!!!!!  IF YOU FOLLOW MY ADVICE YOU WILL BE PART OF THAT 10% WINNER, email me.
      Have a nice trading day

    • Hey, I am new to this. Anyone use software like this?? Is it legit?? 
    • Extend Trend Lines is a VTL Client-side indicator for elongating the trend lines on the chart to the last bar. Traders usually draw trend lines on the chart and use them as support resistance levels. When a trend line breakout happens, it is the beginning of a new trend. One issue with trend lines drawn manually on the chart is that they do not get elongated when new bars form on the chart. It should be manually adjusted with new bars.  Extend Trend Lines VTL Indicator takes care of this situation. It automatically adjusts all trend lines on the chart to the last bar. It monitors the trend lines on each new bar and adjust them.  This is useful when the trader opens the terminal on a new day and the old trend lines are short and need adjustments.   ExtendTrendLines.zip
    • Previous day high low is a Client Side VTL indicator that draws the last day’s high, low and today’s open on the chart. When day trading, the previous day’s high and low are important reference points or support resistance levels. In a bullish market price breaks above the previous day’s high early in the day and continue to trade above that level.  In bear markets, price break below the previous day’s low early in the day and continue to trade below that level.  Trading ranges form when price fails to break the previous day’s high or low successfully.  This info alone can improve your trading results as this give you a clear vision of what is likely to happen today. Breakout trading strategies work best when price is above or below yesterday’s range. Trend following strategies also work best in this situation.  When price is inside yesterday range, counter trend strategies work better. Oscillators like RSI and Stochastics work best in this situation.   Prev_Day_High_Low.zip
