Attachment on post 3 I found this posted on another site and thought I'd post it here. It's probably a repost but whatever. edit - it says it's too long to post so I've attached it. This guy says "always be fading." I think I might try that. Almost every time a popular indicator gives a buy signal, there's always a little drop that may or may not continue. And vice versa for sell signals. wtf If most people follow these and diligently buy when their system tells them to, and then exit when their system tells them to, and they lose money, maybe they should be doing the opposite. That's what "fading" means, isn't it? I spend hours each day studying systems, coming up with new ideas, coding and testing them, and I really haven't found anything with an edge over time. Maybe I'll start doing the opposite of all this stuff. Except it seems like fading would require scalping, and I hate scalping. I always get shitty fills, even when I use bracket orders off the DOM (unless I use limits to enter, but I don't see how you could use limit orders to enter on a scalp). Seriously like I enter on a bracket order with exits +/- 4 ticks in either direction, and somehow I always get filled 1 tick away from my exit in the wrong way. So one tick against me stops me out... wtf is that? And it also means I'm entered with 3 ticks already against me. Do not want! This doesn't happen if I use market orders, but like I said, I never know where the price is gonna be when I'm gonna want to enter so market orders are pretty hard to use. Discuss.
