    This is not “romantic work” at all. It is s_xwork, plain and simple.

    A writer that gets not much press in Daily Spec.

    after using moving average for the longest time i think they are now useful 50% of time and useless 50% of time. plus, they cause one to lose feel for the market and to cut winners VERY short.

    Today wasn’t very romantic but Breeder’s Cup races are cranking up. Fillies today. Youbet was purchased by CHDN and it’s geat. You can copy the pool right into a spreadsheet and get a good read. Last good racing until Spring.

    Andre, what exactly are you responding to? It is interesting that you say moving averages cut winners short. I thought they were generally used as trend following tools? (cut winners short let profits run?)

    lots of people who are trying to trade the emini are using 20 ema and i get fixated on looking at it instead of price. it is really meaningless and does more harm than good. one should be able to visualize where it would be if one has been doing it long enough. just my opinion and im not responding to anyone just whenever i have a though worth sharing i post it here while i try in most cases in vain to trade.

    also, unless you have cme membership and are a electronic local essentially you have to speculate not grind and using ema promotes grinding. i can confirm with my commissions…consistent winner but the outlier negative trades knock you back and make it all not worth while. have to find those speculative opportunities like bacon suggests. grinding is for hft, e locals, and brokers.

    One thing that is hard to do is to learn that if you have a bullish bias (by whatever system you use) to stay with the trade for as long as that bias exists, rather than grabbing a quick profit. It takes courage, which many times is the secret sauce so many traders are missing.

    Andre I admit sometimes I scalp. My definition though is not a few ticks but rather 3-6 points and a time stop. Only other stop is a daily risk limit. If it gets hard I just stop doing it until I appears to be getting easy again. Buy fear in a market that is being accumulated. Dip the toe in and if not bitten off try to use that profit as a cushion make more. Holding till end of day at least though, seems to make more money. A few of these fast swings that happen over a few days dominates so many little scalp type trades it hardly seems worth it at times. It is fun though just watch the bottom line.
