Beyond Taylor

Recommended Posts

I have just re studied the Taylor text and it seems to me that continuity, re cycling, etc. of the Taylor count could be fundamentally non consequential for intra day trading and even for swing trading if the Taylor rules are worked with "sensibly" and "conceptually." That is, in theory, at this point in my understanding.

 

The Taylor rules--as "concepts"--are the "main dish" and the Taylor count is the "dessert." Hence, Mitsubishi's admonishment against the "continuous count" or even a count at all as "non essential" could have some basis in the Taylor theory: a meal can be had without dessert but not without the main dish.

 

More accurately- preference

The count is part of the concept,not the dessert.You simply redefine the word "count" from-

 

a buy day,sell day.short sell day

 

to-

 

a buying period,a selling,period,a short selling period.

 

Does the chart look like a repeating 3 day cycle?- no

It seems to me that Taylor did fundamentally two things:

 

1. Taylor identified the perennial 3 day cycle (at its essence)

 

2. Taylor created rules for discretionary trading based upon the 3 day cycle together with logic

 

BUT, the Taylor rules were constructed out of a commodities and equities swing trade logic. Other instruments and time frames could work with a different logic. This implies that it is likely that a trader has to construct a different set of rules dependent upon the particular instrument and type of trading (essentially a reference to the time frame or duration for a trade) of interest to the trader, if the instruments or type of trading or both differ from that of Taylor.

 

Furthermore, the identification of logic behind the Taylor methodology displaces the notion that mysticism played a role in the Taylor Trading theory. It seems to me that if the application of a Taylor rule doesn't seem to make sense based upon other "extrinsic" methods utilized by a trader, Taylor would not simply apply that rule and enter or exit a position mechanically.

In all honesty I must admit that the journey I took to learn the Taylor Method was an informative and a special journey, I not only made special friends along the way, including Mitsubishi and a few others, but I walked away with a feeling of accomplishment because I was able to master a very complicated method plus learn the secrets of being a discipline trader, even though I did not actually make money form what I learned about the Taylor Method, I believe that the real message that Taylor wanted to pass on to future traders was that it matters not what method you use to trade, the key essential ingredient to becoming a successful trader is to first master the art of being a disciplined trader. With that knowledge, one will be able to view the markets in a different perspective and ultimately you will become a better and more successful trader.

 

I may never open the Taylor book again, I have since placed it back on the shelf where it was for about 10 years before i even read it. So with that said I would like to take this opportunity to thank and pay tribute to the person that introduced me to the Taylor method, this strange book was given to me by someone whom I have never met or spoken to, his name is Robert T Rogers, on 10/10/2002 after exchanging a few email with Robert he mailed me the Taylor method, it was an original version of the book,he states in a letter to me "I am enclosing the original of taylor's Trading Technique" it came in a green or blue binder with faded pages. The only reason I even decided to read this book was after I discovered this thread back in 2011 on this forum, Traders Laboratory, so it took me some 10 years to open the Taylor book which was sitting on my book shelf since 2002.

 

It was an amazing and eye opening learning experience with a very deep learning curve that would discourage most traders from going pass the first page, but I did not give up because I believed that there was a message to be learned from studying and comprehending the material. What Taylor teaches and reveals to you is that there is a natural cycle or rhythm within the markets and that this natural cycle is present today as much as it was present during his time back in 1950. This ever present cycle, is not random and it will continue indefinitely into the distant future, governed by the same laws and principles that control nature.

 

The basis of this cycle is similar to that of the Sine Wave, the market is a rhythmic pulse, or pattern that appears in every market. This is what Taylor teach in his 3 day cycle, Selling Day, Sell Short Day and Buying Day.

Within those 3 days traders go through a Sine Wave period which begins with Optimism as they start buying at the bottom, this leads to a Euphoric stage at the top, which turns into Anxiety not knowing if the market will go higher or lower then Fear develops as the market starts to decline which leads to Desperation as the market crashes, then finally the feeling changes to Hope as the market settles and start to rise and finally the cycle ends back where it started as Optimism sets in as the market starts to rise again.

 

One last note I never made contact again with Robert T Rogers, I wanted to thank him for sharing this wonderful book with me, all of his contact information have since become obsolete and a letter I mailed him I never received a reply.

Looks like Gann Trader has gone Beyond Taylor.....:thumbs up:

Something happened,it seems to me,inbetween concluding that the method cannot be implemented as described in the book TO the market does not change basically in it's structure and operation ....and therefore,by implication must be exploitable.

 

And that is the key.What is inspiration? It is simply a shift in perception.

 

What do they say in the property world? Location,location,location,

Where is the worst location to buy?.If the market rallied strongly all day yesterday closing near or at the high,then today gaps up and starts going sideways is that a great location to buy? I would say that this is most likely place that price will retrace.But the action you take depends on what your current position is.

 

If you bought the previous day then this is the ideal location to sell existing longs and consider either going short or waiting for the gap to fill and go long.And you are asking yourself is today a high made first day?

I use the free information on the left of the chart to weigh the probabilities as to the next segment in price movement.

Taking the same scenario,if the higher timeframe trend is long if I were to go short my target is no further than a gap fill,because the probability is that the trend continues.

Probabilities must be weighed against recent context and what you are currently perceiving.

So,going back to the prev day rally,if that rally actually started a day or more earlier,then that changes the probabilities today.The probability for price to continue rallying without a gap fill today are lower.The probability that price fills the gap and does not take out the opening high increase,which in turn raises the probability that the opening high will be the daily high,a high made first.

 

Now we can put the above concept into the context of a repeating cycle that Gann trader just mentioned.A rally continues until it meets resistance and loses momentum.

 

(Bring whatever tools you prefer to measure that loss of momentum.For me the chart/tape reading is all I use.Not an oscillator or some other indicator,not volume,not DOM,not some guy on a blog saying we're overbought,not some talking head,not some job number.The only thing I trust is what I can see.Read a market using whatever works personally for you)

 

When it loses momentum,the short cycle begins.You have missed the selling cycle at this point.A rally is easy to see,a decline is easy to see,selling is done in secret as much as is possible.If you got out at todays early high,that is usually the last possible point on the selling cycle.The sellers are selling on the way up.You risk giving back some profits if you continue holding existing longs here.The optimal place to exit an existing long is a high made first and early.The optimal place to initiate a short position is a high made first and early.The optimal place to initiate a long position is a low made first and early.

If todays high remains in place then that is the zone in which "they" are short so at this point you either sell rallies or you await a low made first tomorrow where the short cycle has a good probability of ending.

 

One of the bonuses of following this method is you get to make money when you are wrong.If after a 2 day rally and a gap up this morning, you get out of your long position but the market continues up for a 3rd day,you were wrong ,but you made money.Who doesn't want to make money when they are wrong?

In this case,the probability for a high made first the next day increases.

 

OTOH,it becomes clear that when what you expect to happen does not happen you can act accordingly.For example,do not short a dull market that has strength in the background.Do not short if price keeps edging up from the early high-there is a window of time in which the likely/optimal trade has passed.There is a difference between expectation/probability and obstinacy.

 

What I like about this approach is that you don't go every day into the market completely blind.There is a certain amount of discretion in decision making but it's contained within reasonable expectations and probabilities.And one becomes better at the methods one focuses on.

 

It seems to me,that this method often presents problems for traders not because the principles aren't sound or relative to todays markets ,but simply because of the restrictions traders place on themselves.The reluctance to hold overnight.The insistence of using tight stops and small targets.The reluctance to act without "confirmation".

There's too much focus on an exact entry/exit price.Too much reliance on synthetic representations of price-namely indicators.You simply want to trade zones,in sync with the ebb and flow of price segments and,most importantly trade with confidence.

 

You have to ask yourself what elements of my approach are hampering my results?.Underfunding and too much leverage seem to be common causes.Less leverage and bigger targets and stops seems an obvious solution.

 

With this method,usually 1-3 trading ideas a day is what you're looking for.I trading idea is most often optimal.But it's based on the cycle-obviously.If the buying cycle ends early-high made first,exiting an existing long is the first trade,going short is a possible second trade and covering on the same day/going long would be a 3rd trade.Constantly changing your view on whether it's going to go up or down in the next5/30 minutes just seems like mental torture for me..self inflicted.The main cycle is longer than 5/30 minutes.

 

If the low is made first and you think you have seen it,and you are on board in that zone then holding all/most of the day is 1 trade.

I just wonder how many readers here have never actually attempted it?

What a good opportunity Thursday might present in that case.3 days in the red,a gap down would be a good probability zone to see some kind of rally.If you believe there is further weakness to come,sell at the gap fill.(1st target)If you are still bullish try to hold all day-2nd target prev lows....

 

One of the key elements of this method is to always be looking to act quickly early in the session,then having got on the right side,hold that position all day (or several days),or,in the case of a big move in a short period of time.take what the market gives you.

I just discovered this thread although it seems the party is over. I've been reading TTT and applying it to the NQ with good results. The information provided by WHY? is closest to how I interpret Taylor. I never alter the count, I never buy on a SS day etc. I track a few things that Taylor didn't and changed the layout of the book slightly. I don't think anything revolutionary needs to happen to trade Taylor. There is enough flexibility in the rules. It is not a day trading method but it is a good swing trading method.

 

BTW - today is a buy day for me.

Not sure what game you are playing. Petuca didn't seem to contribute anything ever.

 

Does anyone know what instruments "WK" and "CK" are in the Additional Material subsection are?

 

Monday is a SS day for the NQ if anyone cares.

Over time, I have pondered the problem of the Taylor Trading cycle as a determinant of the price action. My conclusion is that the Taylor Trading cycle is not a determinant but simply a map of what could happen and this concept of a map underlies my explanation.

 

If a person is utilizing a map, the person is not "beholden" to the map because the map is simply a guide and not something more than that. Hence the person could deviate from the map at any time, if something interesting or if something problematic shows up. These things of "interest" or "problematic" ARE THE CATALYSTS OR THE LATEST ECONOMIC DATA, for example.

 

Furthermore, if we consider what a map is, we can better understand the limitations of a map. A map is simply an abstract composite of the geographical experiences of people over time. In a sense, it is like an "average." In trading, there is something similar to a map: an almanac. An almanac is simply an abstract composite of "averages" over time, like a map. A person can depend upon a map or an almanac and it could be useful or informative. But, a map or an almanac cannot be a determinant of what a person does because a map or an almanac is an ABSTRACTION AND an abstraction FROM THE PAST. A person or a trader can encounter something not shown by the map or the almanac in current time and the person or trader could be affected by that. For example, a map shows a road but a car accident just happened. A continuation on that road could be problematic because of that. In trading, this could be a new negative catalyst of some sort.

 

Hence, my conclusion is that the Taylor Trading cycle is not a determinant of the price action but simply a map of what could happen and not that different from an almanac or set of averages to consult but not to depend on beyond the actual function of an average. It seems that many traders utilizing the Taylor Trading cycle err in endowing the Taylor Trading cycle with more utility than what it is designed for. That error, I believe, is the primary basis for the mystical vs. the pragmatic approach to the understanding and utilization of the Taylor Trading concept.

A problem of averages is a problem of the past. Averages suggest what is likely to happen but not what has to happen. Today, therefore, could be an exception from that average or "map" or trend.

 

But if that is the case, there should be signs of "today" being an exception. And that exception is a different pattern. There should be signs, in other words, of a different pattern in formation. The averages, therefore, suggest a pattern in conflict with the exception pattern developing and a trader has a choice of which set of signs to work with.

 

But if signs of an exception or a different pattern emerge, the problem is determining if that suggests a possible reversal of the trend because the "average" presumably suggests a trend in motion.

 

Taylor explained this conflict in terms of buyers and sellers. On the BUY DAY, at some point, the buyers are likely to show up. On the SS DAY, the short sellers are likely to show up. The BUY DAY and the SS DAY register the two points of an extreme according to Taylor. BUT, it could be possible in a trend with strength, that on the next SS DAY, buyers CONTINUE TO SHOW UP. The short sellers decide not to show up on the next SS DAY because a new positive catalyst could emerge on that next SS DAY. The short selling has been postponed. This postponement is an exception to the average. But ironically, in a trend with strength, this 4 day cycle could be the "average" vs. an exception. Context is more significant than the overall Taylor theory based on a three day cycle.

At best that is all anything is i.e. "what is likely to happen" based on averages or past action. For instance, look at any chart...present day or 60 years ago...you will see trends..breakouts...channels...triangles...wedges...flags...pullbacks...reversals...etc they are all there..computer days or precomputer days...the market has always had these patterns and always will unless human nature changes. So we "know" when we see a successful breakout that most likely it will become a channel which will then resolve into a sideways range which will then resolve into another breakout.

 

The problem is the timing. How long will a channel be a channel or how "far" will a breakout spike go before a pullback?

 

Taylor observed a three day pattern that at times was a 4 or 5 day pattern. On rare occasions was it more than that.

 

No breakout spike can indefinetely continue to be a breakout. Sooner or later a pullback must happen and then one will generally see a channel develop which with the passage of time which in turn gets flatter and flatter and soon becomes a sideways range. This is the nature of the markets or some may call it the market cycle. But within these channels or ranges many taylor three day cycles can be observed.

 

Markets simply cannot shoot straight up and straight down every day, all the time. Not many would put money in such an unstable environment. There are too many participants in the markets with varying opinions desires..hopes.. dreams to cause it to shoot straight up and down. . Humans make the markets. Deep pockets can move it or manipulate it to some degree. They generally can inniate a move but the public drives it..nowdays..algos and hft too enter the picture in driving it. That is the theory behind taylors 3 day cycle. That is, those that can move it tend to do so in a 3 to 5 day cycle.

It would be a major shock if the Fed doesn’t deliver. But some, including Donald Trump, want more than just 25 basis points. In fact, the US President has called for “boneheads” Fed to cut rates to zero or lower in a tweet this week. Understandably, with US data not deteriorating as badly as, say, Germany, the Fed is reluctant to cut aggressively and rightly so. The risk therefore is that the Fed refuses to provide a dovish outlook for interest rates. In this potential scenario, a rate cut might only weigh on the dollar momentarily. With most other major central banks already being or turning dovish, the Fed will also need to be super dovish for the dollar to end its bullish trend. Otherwise, the greenback may find renewed bullish momentum, even if the Fed cuts by 25 basis points.     The #Swiss National Bank will have to say about the #ECB’s decision to resume bond buying, given the recent appreciation of the franc against the shared currency. The #BoJ is unlikely to respond to the #ECB’s resumption of bond buying. It may keep the current policy of controlling the yield curve. For one, the global economy hasn’t deteriorated too significantly to exacerbate deflationary pressures in the export-oriented Japanese economy. For another, the there’s only limited number of policy options left at the BoJ's disposal. Thus, cutting short-term interest rates further into the negative may be an option, but to be used on another occasion.
    • Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Brazilian Real COT Change (52W) / C - 54%, LS – 54% / FTG Score / D -24,1, W -36,7, M -25,9 / All major cot signals are indicating that we have a good chance to see the market to rally. Wheat (Minn.) COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D -25.7, W -31.3, M -29.7/ All time cot extremes are always highly valued, but we should be careful, since history has proven that we can be in such a place for a long time before we see the major trend change… Nevertheless we should be prepared to see Wheat go higher. Sugar COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D -28.6, W 26.4, M -45.2 / Well I could simply copy+paste what I just wrote for Wheat but actually there are some differences here… If you look carefully, you may find Sugar to be in a bullish extreme since mid 2017, and we have still not been able to leave the bear market…. So even with this all time cot extreme, one should be willing to accept the high chance that Sugar will stay low even with such extremes!

    • Date : 16th September 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 16th September 2019.Welcome to our weekly agenda, our briefing of all the key financial events globally. The week ahead is expected to be a massive one, as four of the major Central banks will announce their rate decision, i.e. Fed, BoJ, SNB and BoE. There is a lot of interest in seeing whether BoJ will follow the Fed’s steps next week in cutting rates. Monday – 16 September 2019   Industrial Production and Retail Sales (CNY, GMT 02:00) – The Chinese Industrial Production growth is expected to have risen, at 5.2% y/y in August from 4.8% y/y last month. A slightly positive reading is also expected in the Retail Sales figure at 7.9% from 7.6%. Tuesday – 17 September 2019   Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The RBA minutes, similar to the ECB Reports, provide a detailed assessment of the bank’s most recent policy-setting meeting, containing in-depth insights into the economic conditions that influenced the rate decision. They are usually a cause for FX turbulence. ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for September is projected at -38.0, from the lowest level since 2011 at -44.1 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The ZEW is a pretty clear indication that investors are gearing up for a much higher risk of a global recession, which ties in with developments in global bond yields and the marked flattening of curves. Wednesday – 18 September 2019   Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The UK CPI inflation is anticipated to be more underwhelming than the July data, at 1.9% y/y from 2.1% y/y, with a monthly rise up to 0.5% m/m. Consumer Price Index and Core (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The final reading of inflation is expected to have held steady at 1.0% y/y and core at 0.9% y/y, with an increase in the monthly number at 0.2%m/m from -0.5%m/m. Lower energy price inflation keep a lid on the overall number meanwhile as CPI excluding energy moved up to 1.2% from 1.1% y/y last month. Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The August CPI is expected to continue adding to the backing for steady BoC policy this year, even as the Fed and ECB add stimulus. CPI has been forecasted to grow to a 1.7% y/y pace in August, below the 2.0% last month. Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (USD, GMT 18:00-18:30) – The August’s jobs data did little to alter the market’s expectations for a 25bp rate cut at the September 17-18 FOMC meeting. Based on Powell’s latest comments, the Fed is very committed to a symmetric 2% inflation goal, hence given low inflation, interest rates will remain low. That leaves very little room to cut rates further. The Fed is not forecasting or expecting a US recession, nor a global downturn, said Powell. The fact that the chair doesn’t seem too concerned about a recession in the States, or the world, suggests the FOMC is not going to be aggressive easing policy. Thursday – 19 September 2019   Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement (JPY, GMT 02:00) – The BoJ kept its short-term interest rate target at -0.1% and its pledge to guide 10-year JGB yields around 0% while maintaining its asset buying program. The central bank is expected to signal once again its commitment to keep interest rates at current levels “for an extended period of time, at least through around spring 2020”. The BoJ pledged to keep an eye on the output gap, but for now at least it seems the bank is seeing the risks as coming mainly from the outside. Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement (CHF, GMT 07:30) – The SNB kept policy on hold at the June council meeting. The Libor target was replaced with a key policy rate, but the central bank was adamant that the degree of monetary accommodation remains unchanged. After the ECB cut rates, while the Fed is now widely expected to ease rates, the SNB has little room to manoeuvre, especially against the backdrop of ongoing Brexit uncertainty and geopolitical trade risks. The SNB’s central message remains that the situation remains fragile and the currency “highly valued”. Interest Rate Decision, MPC Voting (GBP, GMT 11:00) – Shadowed by the ongoing political developments in Brexit, the BoE is not expected to proceed with any interest rate actions. Friday – 20 September 2019   Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales and Core for August are seen steady, while the headline is anticipated to drop to 2.9% y/y from 3.3% and core to 2.5% from 2.9%.

    • China’s New Cryptocurrency   China plans to release a new digital currency which would bear some similarities to Facebook’s Libra coin. It would be usable across several platforms like WeChat and Alipay.   In a recent interview with the Shanghai Security News on the 6th of September, the deputy director of the People’s Bank of China, Mu Changchun, stated the purposes and the need for the new digital currency. He stated that the central bank needed to evolve from the use of traditional paper currency and delve into electronic payment methods which are making strong advances around the world. He said that the digital currency would be a realistic way to protect monetary sovereignty and legal currency status, stating that this digital currency initiative was a way of planning for a rainy day.   He also mentioned that digital currency would be as safe as the traditional central bank-issued paper notes and that it could even be used without requiring an internet connection. This offline feature is one of its major selling points as monetary transactions can still be carried out even in the face of communication breakdowns resulting from natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis and so on.   In 2014, the Chinese central bank set up a research party to explore the possibilities of a China-based digital currency to reduce the costs of producing and circulating paper money, which in turn would boost policymakers’ control over the supply of money.   Information about the development of this new digital currency was unknown to the public until last month when Mu announced that the innovation was almost ready.   US-based financial magazine Forbes has made claims that the currency would be ready by November 11.   Analysts are saying that the announcement made by social media giants, Facebook on the release of its digital coin, Libra, is the reason for the acceleration of the push towards digital currency by the PBoC.   Mu made mention of how the new digital currency would strike a balance between allowing anonymous payments and preventing money-laundering as compared to Libra. Although the Chinese digital currency may bear some resemblances with Libra, it would possess characteristics that even Libra didn’t have.   Facebook’s Libra Facebook’s Libra has sparked a lot of worries among global regulators that it could become the predominant digital payment format and could become a medium for money laundering considering the social media’s wide reach.   Libra is said to be a digital currency that would be backed by several real-world assets, including bank deposits and government securities, and it will be held by a network of stewards. The structure of Libra is predicated on promoting trust and to stabilize its price.   Finally, Mu further discussed the superiority of the digital currency over altcoins was that others could go bankrupt and cause its users huge losses. Thus he said, can never be the case of PBoC’s new currency.   Source: https://learn2.trade
