Long time lurker on the ACD main thread, thought I would register at ET and ask a couple of general questions. I have been studying ACD for awhile and understand what Maverick means about "making the method your own". Different OR's and levels to best suit your style. While playing around with the system I noticed that days with wide OR's and PZ's don't bode well for the straight breakout trades. Is this maybe because the stop levels are quite large, and the RR gets skewed, or do these conditions have predictive value? I use an OR of x minutes, and A's of Y% of ATR. On days when my OR is greater than say 3o% of the ATR, I do better by setting my A's even wider and only taking fade signals. I am also more inclined to take this route when the previous day's action was very trendy or exhibited an abnormally large Range. Does this make sense, or am I falling victim to recentcy?
