rathcoole_exile started this thread yep, a beauty.
funny enough I'm just compiling a response to a guy who PM'd me for tips on trading and I've just advised him to check out the ORB technique. So nice example today :-)

Is there anywhere in this thread where you say how you calculate your pivots?

Mr. Gecko,

Check my post #322 on page 41 of the thread. The points that are habitually posted are for the CAMs... in having read R_E's thread since the beginning, there are also the regular floor trader pivots and DeMark pivots that can be considered/combined with the CAMs.

Regards,

Ivor

Thanks Ivor - I had seen your post, but at the beginning of the thread there were multiple levels being quoted - CAM (which/who I have never heard of), DeMark (which I have heard of but not in the form of pivots) and regular floor pivots, which I had heard about but never used.

What is confusing me here is which set to choose - intuitivley, the floor pivots have the most appeal because I can easily imagine they are the most popular / used by the most traders (and therefore become something of a self fulfilling prophecy)... the other pivots just seem to be a bit, well, random.

R_E do you have any preferences? do you just figure out all the levels and go with your gut at each level?

NB: Just to confirm, the levels are for the past 5 days, yeah? so the high of the last 5 days, etc... what about the weeklies, do you go back 5 weeks too?

TBH I was always scepticle that anything like pivots would work because they just seem arbitrary (i.e. do a sum and trade the level), but they seem to be doing alright here...

mucho grašias !!
