After multiple arguments on the matter I decided to bring a bit of objectivity to the field of continuous holy war and demonstrate some of the actual performance achieved with use of a couple simple TA signals. Will I prove TA has some value or the opposite, time will show. Brief description of the approach: pure technical analysis, all actions are triggered by certain chart patterns with microscopic fundamental component (I am unable to isolate myself from the news and hence accept the possibility of subconscious directional bias depending on fundamentals). Market traded is currently NQ, later probably add 6E and ES as well. Day trading only during the first 2-3 hours of US regular stock trading session. Tight risk management, all trades are entered with a hard stop-loss. Due to the short-term nature of the approach calls in advance are not possible so will post Sierra Chart blotters at the end of each session, set to show P&L in points per contract (the most objective measure of performance IMO when one knows how much is risk in points per trade). That's it. If I forgot something will post additional notes later.
