Does anyone here trade off of this pattern ? I know that Linda bradford raschke still uses it herself and was wondering whether anyone else uses it as well ? I myself currently trade the system using the ES on 3,5 and 7 minute bars only. I do not include non market hour data and tend to stay away from the first 20 minutes or so due to the whipsaw and potential for reversal. I seem to get at most about 5 trades a day tops anymore than that and I know I am overtrading. I find that the system has about a 1:2 risk to reward and somewhere around a 50% winning average ( note this counts scratches as losers, therefore not including scratches the win ratio would be higher). The problem I am having is backtesting the system is difficult because once I enter most trades my exits are pretty discretionary. Generally I am for the 1:2 risk to reward scenario but oftentimes I will jump out at 1:1.5 if I see the trade falling apart. I suppose this system is pretty much the same as most trend following systems that rely on a pullback (i.e jeff cooper, dave landry type of trades) so I am just wondering how other people are doing trading this system, or one similar to it. Also if anyone has any data concerning the reliability of a system like this I would greatly appreciate it.
