2George started this thread Apology accepted.
The attached is how I find a trade but as I specialise in the CCI and understand the hidden S&R levels it gives this document is ONLY my first step.
I also use trendlines on the OPEN price of a candle - and it ignores all other candles and spikes.
These two items together reduce dramatically the amount of bad trades.
Trading is a jigsaw and I put together the pieces that I understand first, then the rest of the chart becomes easier to control.
You will see I use more than one indicator and I only use momentum indicators.
Good luck.
George

2George started this thread I was attaching a word doc for you to show you how I identify trades when another ignorant post came in.
I will not help these offensive people so I will PM you.
I am retired and have not the time to give full time but I will help you as long as you wish, not just over a week as a week is nothing.

i dont know if youre aware george but a guy called mp6843 or something similar spent a lot of someones money claiming to be some kind of guru so showing a chart of a trade that worked out well counts for nothing. i think most people have had a few successful trades at some point. so it makes sense for anyone thinking of risking money on what you say to be sure its unlikely to just dissapear. a reasonably sized sample of trades would do this but based on whats been said so far i think its clear that wont be happening any time soon for obvious reasons

Jigsaw

2George started this thread Trading is such a complex jigsaw I did not wish this thread to be used as a training thread.
My intention was to find someone who could trade profitably to start with and give them my advice on where to improve. When they had improved they could trade some of my funds for a good commission.
I hestitate to put up the 'too obvious' to some and the 'too complex' for others but as long as I do not get drawn into long explanations I have added an attachment to show how I enter and exit trades.
There are several ways to be profitable but if the trader is patient, wait for the market to come to you then you should not go wrong if you have a good system.
Sadly there are some who have had bad experiences and I am sorry for them. THIS IS NO EXCUSE FOR IGNORANCE AND RUDENESS.
I use CCI divergence as the FIRST signal for an entry. I have prepared a word doc to illustrate this.
Secondly I use trendlines only on OPEN prices in association with the CCI indicator.
Thirdly I use at least one other momentum oscillator depending on what timeframe chart I use.
The 2 other oscillators I use are the Price Oscillator set on 10/30 ema's and stochastics set on 8-3-3. These also show divergence but it is important to know that they all are used as confirmers and not as entry indicators.
Specific indicators are excellent BUT the trader MUST, MUST, MUST understand the indicator. Divergence is normal sometimes and the best friend you have ever had at other times. It is hugely important to recognise the different types.
I wish all of you good luck.

Obviously I know nothing then.

I wouldn't trade indicator signals - however then can be very useful for predicting resistance levels on a pullback.

A very convincing argument

Why don't you explain exactly how indicators work? Not how you trade with them, I'm not interested in your 'system', at all. Tell me what an indicator is and how it is derived. This should be interesting...

Just my 2 cents - don't want to get involved in a fight but I don't think it's really for anyone to say that something DOES or DOESN'T work and that includes indicators or spread betting for that matter.

I personally shun indicators and use pure price action and simple TA but I know some, albeit not many, people that use indicators as a main part of their strategy and are successful. One trader I know uses Woodies CCI which as far as I can tell puts the emphasis SOLELY on the indicator and can be traded without even looking at the candles.

Same goes with spread betting. It has its advantages and disadvantages. I have used both spread betting AND direct market and each has its place. Infact I actually believe that unless you are a scalper it is EASIER to make money spread betting than direct market.

Indicators can and do work and the likes of Grey1 has consistently proven this day in and day out posting live trades and P&L accounts daily on the Technical Trader forum. I also don't doubt that price action only can work as well.
