I've finally started trading after reading ET and experimenting with systems and indicators for two years. Now I can say this is the most exciting occupation Iâve found in a long time. I'd love to get some criticism on my strategy. I trade 1 or 2 NQ contracts (NQM3) intraday with a $6K account on IB. I use RealTick charts with Medved QuoteTracker as a backup. My P/L has been positive every day Iâve traded, though I overtrade (about 100 trades per day) and thus spend a lot on commissions. So far I've identified many techniques that seem to help me, at least for NQ: 1) I use tick, bid and ask charts of NQ. I use a tick chart of QQQ for confirmation. 2) I periodically adjust my moving averages to best highlight major and minor trends in a given period of time. I donât use MA crosses for signals. Instead I look at the slope of each MA, sometimes using a MA momentum indicator. 3) I pay close attention to inflection points on the short term QQQ MAs. These are easy to see on the MA momentum indicator. 4) I always trade on the side of the major trend. 5) I use a high speed, low latency internet connection and use hotkeys for rapid entry. 6) I never hesitate to close a position if something doesnât feel right. Better to wait and find a better entry. 7) I always keep an eye on the NQ bid/offer prices and sizes. If prices arenât moving fast, Iâll time my entry/exit to fill at the (best) bid/offer with shrinking size, because that that makes my trade more optimal than at a bid/offer with larger size. If bid/offer size is increasing, I may wait for a better bid/offer. 8) I only use mental stops and profit targets because while price may hit the stop, a short term moving average is a more accurate indication of where prices are moving. Plus it may be in the interest of MMs to bounce prices around, triggering stops. 9) I trade unemotionally. This is money I can afford to lose. I donât mind losing trades and overtrading if it helps me learn. Any suggestions?
