Just wanna get one thing right. I'm a complete newbie and so don't know a lot about anything.

The stuff you trade, is that stocks and shares or futures and options?

Looking at sample charts on their site and the stuff they send in the post, it seems their whole system is geared to automatic support & resistance using a 15 min candlestick chart for daytrading. They calll it volatility measurement and they say it's not based on Bollinger Bands! It looks similar though.

Now my question is this. Does anyone know what technical indicators are available to give the same automatic support and resistance?

Their sample charts look too good to be true. Maybe they just pick out the best charts. But £3500 is very steep for a relatively unknown product which has only been used by one member in these forums.

I would be grateful for any feedback on this.

Hi Cashtrader, I have had trendsignal for a couple of months.
I bought it at a time when I was going through a rough patch in January.

The main things it has made me realise is the value of a predetermined stop loss. I have been looking at it on and off and have realised that as with all things it isn't the holy grail, basically it is support and resistance lines.

I am not using at the moment for trading the dow as I am becoming more familiar and confident using Chartman's technique.
I don't regret buying it as it has re-emphasised important issues to me personally.

However I plan on looking at it sometime in the near future for trading the ftse/dax/smi.

HTH.

tradertim started this thread Cashtrader,

TrendSignal`s main bands appear to be Keltner channels (which are based on volatility). See www.arbtrading.com/keltner.htm for calculation & interpretation. TrendSignal`s intermediate bands seem to be set halfway inbetween the central moving average & outer channels.

The TrendSignal trendline, in the separate box below the main chart, appears to be a momentum oscillator.

The horizontal support & resistance lines seem to be drawn from (the centre of?) recent candlestick reversal points.

Their recent addition of stop loss lines are parabolic SAR lines.

Zarif,
Can you quantify "dogs b..ll....ks" a little...that is , number of trades to date,win ratio,win/loss %, max drawdown ? The more of this you can give the better it allows us reading to benefit from your experience. I appreciate quantifying takes more time than "dogsb...ll...ks",but your time will surely be appreciated by the BB...

Cheers

What package did you buy? The £1000 one or the £3000 one? Do they both use the exact same strategy even though one is for Day trading whereas the other one is for people with less time?

What is the difference in these two systems then?

Appreciate some info,
Thanks

Jetheat the EOD is set at Daily frequency whereas with the intraday package one can alter the frequency as desired. The Trendsignal people do suggest using 5min and 15min charts for intraday purposes. 15 min chart as backup confirmation that one is trading in the right direction, 5min is usually used for entry.

Maybe the guys can comment as well on how they use it.

Do u mean that the difference between the £1000 and £3000 programs are the charts they use.
Hell, I could use charts of the Internet for free.
I'm sure this isn't the only difference, so can anyone shed some light?
