How many of you trade naked? First of all, if you are really naked for the sake for everyone around you get dressed. Secondly, most of you know what I refer to and to those who do not: naked trading refers to trading without any indicators, just the chart free of clutter and noise.

I have not tried it, although I do not use many indicators and my charts are almost naked. I did come across a few traders, in real life as well as online, who swear by trading naked and claim it has truly improved their trading.

What are your experiences with naked trading? Did it improve your trading and how?

I trade with clothes on but don't use indicators at all on charts. However, I tend to trade over a longer time frame of a few months with various stocks so probably a bit different to some on here.

I did not ask for a holy grail as we all know it does not exist, just some feedback of people who do trade naked.

I think LTU Global has been banned for doing rubbish copy/paste jobs and spamming.

He deserved it. Posts are not relevant to discussions at all & his actions are obvious scam.

Finally he gave the negative feedback to what ever his paid party.

its all about YOUR experiences. Let's say I tell you Iron man 3 is a good movie. But you think it sucks because you read some reviews somewhere saying so. But how do you really know whether it sucks? You will have to see it for yourself and find out. What sucks depend on you. Therefore, the best way to find that out is really trading naked for yourself for a while and see the results. No point asking for opinions because it will waste your time and simply because people are different. Your time can be used for your own experiments. A lot of time people waste their time arguing about things that doesn't help in their trading because they fail to understand people are different and they see things differently.

Yes, I agree that it really is about your own experiences. I may open a small account and try trading based on a naked chart in order to see how it works for me.

I wonder if there are naked floor traders :)

I prefer clean charts.

Good decision to move in to PA trading.

I also do price action trading. But not so naked. Draw trendlines by myself and use 02 MAs.

Entries are based on PA patters/ forms.

I do a little bit of forex scalping, for very small stakes and when I have time during the day (which isn't as often as I'd like), and for that I do still have a 20-period SMA/EMA on the chart while I'm trading - Volman-style. For everything else, including my "main trading", I use no indicators at all - and almost never have done, really.

I found that giving up my few indicators and learning to appreciate and interpret price action was probably the single most important and beneficial "trading strategy decision" I've ever made.

So (for someone who occasionally still looks at an EMA!), as far as my own trading goes, I'm almost as "anti-indicator" as you can get, really.

I know what you mean when it comes to indicators. I have never used anything other than MACD. I have seen so many people whose charts look like a complete mess, at least to me. I wonder how they even know what they are looking at, but hey if it works for them who am I to judge.

Thanks, I do think that PA is one of the most reliable forms of trading.

I trade naked / nearly naked - i use a 60 sma and two horizontal lines to mark out tops and bottoms of ranges.

I found the charts started to make more sense once i'd dumped all the indicators and cleaned them upin my early days.

I don't know why we keep insisting on call them indicators, they show where price was - not where its going too same as bars / candles...

Does anyone trade totally naked - no candles just a line or even chartless? I could trade london break out chartless.

Peace and Pips
