This is probably the most actively followed method on Elite Trader. There are at current count 5 threads containing in-depth discussion on how to implement this method in an effort to get on the same side of the market as the specialist right off the open. Don Bright, a proprietary firm representative and longtime ET member provides feedback on this method just about every day.

The method can be found right at the beginning of the top link listed above and is discussed throughout the threads.

An excerpt from the first thread listed above:

The most important issue (in my opinion)is the enveloped pricing for each issue. We try to modify the over/under based on sector, volatility, and then adjust them for the current fair value calculations.

ET member, Darkhorse talks briefly about his method of swing trading in general terms. He talks about dividing up stock setups into two categories: high profit and high probability and primarily trading stocks that fit in only one of those categories consistently.

An excerpt from the thread above:

Quote:
The way I see it there are two types of high quality entries, significantly different from each other:


a) high probability entries. i.e. if i get in here reward to risk is decent and odds are very good that i will cash out with a profit.

b) high reward to risk entries. i.e. if i get in here odds of success are 50/50 or maybe even less, BUT if I am right I cash in a big multiple of what I am risk.

The above thread chronicles ET member, praetorian2's discovery of a "Great new Pattern" (GNP) and the evolution of that pattern into a trading methodology that has helped him become a winning stock trader. The pattern scans for beaten down stocks, and plays them for a bounce, often holding overnight for a few days before the stocks reach their objective.

An excerpt from the thread:

Quote:
I see a lot of that panic type selling lately where the stock rolls over, there is volume at the bottom, but then it recovers about 70%. Can anyone think of a scan that would be able to detect these types of moves?
praetorian2 also gives a brief bio of his history in trading here:
