Ed Downs's actual entries are normally about 10 points past what he actually posts on the internet - just something to bear in mind. He runs a 10-point stop loss, so today (as a lot of days) he would be getting stopped out.
The important thing to remember is to trade what you see, not what somebody tells you.
A lot of days, if you went with his entries you would do very well, as his aim is to be in on the larger, more profitable moves. Unfortunately, this also means that on days like today you will get whipsawed in and out of trades more times than you can imagine.
