Hi, this is my first post on this site. I was origianlly a postition/swing trader of futures and options. I was pretty successful but it was a little to slow for my taste. I am now a daytrader who scalps the es market. I have a pretty simple method with about a 1.5 profit to 1.5 risk and with about 10 trades a day. Average around 7pts on paper and 3pts when actually trading it per day. My problem is that I would like to try to capture or at least stay with the trend longer during the day. I've read a couple of books/articles on how to do this, but none seem to work. I have been thinking of increasing the time frame (I use the 1min to execute trades) after I'm in a trade and maybe use Moving Averages or something. I've heard some people use trend lines, candlesticks and even just indicators to stay with the trend longer. I have no regrets about having to lose the 1.5 pts profit each time just to catch a 5 pt move once a day. Any help would be awesome. If you need any clarifications to this poste please ask as I am new to this. Thanks.
