Grid Trading Method Modification

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by scalpmaster, Oct 31, 2006.

  1. Anyone knows where to get literature/books on grid trading method?

    Tried google but just a few Oanda forum discussion with scattered information...

    Can this method be modified to trade the same index futures
    e.g YM/ES on 2 different accounts? Have anyone actually tried implementing this technique?
  2. lmao, that's not a technique, it's a loser nonsense proposition. u are basically flat in your position with double the costs and zero advantages. fx retards have invented this crap, go figure.
  3. Can a trading system have a net positive expectancy (2 accts or indices spread) by virtue of an algorithm itself without the need for accuracy (technical indicators/ back/forward testing/charting)?

    Have anyone given a thought or done research on trading algorithms/concepts that is purely based on money mangement?

    Maybe FX grid trading can be modified so that you do not need large capital/margin to implement in index futures trading...

    Grid is not a bad idea especially if it can be automated.

    The key is to know when to throw away current grid wheather the balance is positive or negative.

    Also, each market will behave differently (how many tick between postions, trailing stops and so on).
  5. Anyone knows where to find any good MetaTrader 4 Expert Advisor on grid trading method?
