    Traders in Norwich

    Did the Norwich traders ever meet up? If not, shall we just set a date and time and see who turns up? I've been trading full time for ten years and been a member here for over seven years but rarely post. I moved to Norwich in the last year so looking to make contact with any keen and/or full...

    So you want a system that actually works?

    You can get about 8 months of back data on the Euro FX Futures contract (Globex symbol EC) from www.scmagic.com at http://www.scmagic.de/Historien/2004/Futures/eur-200403-globex.mnd . I believe this data has been collected from the IB feed. You can get daily time and sales data direct from...

    Eminis PnF

    Sorry JonnyT - these things happen. It was the amazing results that made me look at it closer. I would expect an 'always in' system like this to average around 400-500 S&P pts a year so 200 pts a month is very unusual. Mike

    Eminis PnF

    I'm not using P&F directly but it is quite easy to program the logic behind P&F into a system, particularly with a 1 pt box size. All I do is take the integer value of the 1 minute close to give the 'box number'. Then you can set the buy/sell stops as +/- 5 boxes away from the current box...

    Eminis PnF

    I tried to reproduce your results on back data for ES from 24 December. I simply reversed positions after 5 x 1 pt boxes from last high/low. My results show 36.25 pts in 127 trades. Although I have twice as many trades as you reported I cannot see anything I could have programmed incorrectly to...

    Eminis PnF

    JonnyT Your bmp chart seems to show a 2 pt box size with 1 box reversal if I am reading the chart correctly. Your first post mentioned a 1 pt Box size with 2 box reversal. Could you please confirm which you are using for actually trading. Mike

    Exponential Moving Averages. Help please.

    As someone who writes a lot of TA and trading software I would say the great thing about exponential moving averages is that you only need to know three things to calculate them, yesterday's value, the smoothing value and today's close. On the otherhand for a simple or weighted 200 day MA you...
