3 Ducks.....

Thanks for sharing this. Very interesting. Looked at it on FTSE at first glance appears to work pretty well. It's all about not trading against the larger trend...Something I am still working on !

Thanks. Will check it out later.

Love the name. I want to invent a system just to make up the name. Well, I do have the ShadowNinja Suicide System*. First thing in the morning, when you get up, go long on FTSE. Set a stop at 500. :devilish:







* - this is just a joke. You will lose money unless you have the luck of the gods on your side. Your home is at risk if turkeys nibble canoes. Don't cross the road without looking. Always wash behind your ears.

The Ducks in Action!

Earlier today prices for the Usd/Cad where below the 60 period sma on the 4hr & 1 hr time-frames (steps 1&2 of the Duck's system). So we where looking to short this pair at some point when prices crossed below the 60 period sma on the 5min chart (step 3). We got the green light when prices dropped down to 1.0105, all our ducks where lined up in the same direction. Our target was suggested at parity - 1.0000 from our resident Economist, Eric. Well done Eric, your job is safe for another week!

Here is how the trade looked:

Important:By the way, we are not saying that The 3 Duck's Trading System is the "Holy Grail" of trading, of course it has it's losing trades & losing runs. We like to use it with our own market knowledge and view it as a common sense approach to price observation.

Enjoy,

Captain Currency.

Seems to have worked for GBP/USD from about 2pm today.
You sure?

Isn't the 4hr still under the radar today?

EDIT: Last time Cable fell into line, according to these rules were on the 13th of this month.

All roads led 'short' thru 2.0190.

Hello Traders,

Yes Ampro is on the ball, current prices are indeed below the 4hr 60sma on cable. Get step 1, then move on to step 2 and 3 (hope that does'nt sound too teacherish).
We will forgive shadoninja this time.

Kind Regards,

Yeah, I realised this, but for scalping purposes, I would have thought 1HR, 15Min and 3Min would work?

I draw your attention to my disclaimer. :D

With all due respect to peeps.

This is why 95% (or so they say) traders fail.

The guy has given out a system that the banks, major institutions, Mr Elder and other feted traders use, plus the rest of the big boys; and it gets changed straight away.

Human nature I suppose. People can't leave a tried and tested system alone. They always think they can do better. I am guilty of the above myself of course, (at certain times in my trading cycle), however this way of trading has been around for years. If it works for them... etc etc.

This is not a personal attack at you Ninja.

PS. Why do you have two swords sticking out of your head?

PPS. You can scalp on any time frame chart.

Hello Options,

I am laughing at your post, in a nice way!
I agree with you 100%. I showed this system to a trader last week and before I even got to step 3 he was telling me that he could sell down when prices got high enough above the MA's. When I say "make the system your own" I dont mean take a chainsaw to it!
It is human nature to make it your own to a certain point, after all if I had'nt tweeked a few points on the origional idea we wouldnt be talking about The 3 Duck's Trading System today, how mad would that be....?
I guess the lesson here is that human behaviour is very interesting to watch. I also think the best plan going forward and for this topic to survive, would be for traders to trade the system as explained in post number 1.

I hope after all this that T3DTS will make a positive difference to your trading.

Kind regards,

PS: Im still laughing at the previous post.

*points to his disclaimer*

I thought that because I was looking at intraday, the 4 hour chart is less important?

Does this method work in reverse, ie when price is above the 60SMA in all time frames can you go Long ?
