here's my current setup to papertrade emini russell 2000 using tick charts 2400 + 150 + 600 and a simple moving average period 2 rising moving average is yellow falling moving average is blue. moving average is wider(more important) on longer time frame and thinner on shorter ones. up candles are white down candles are red the best set up? when all candles in all time frames are the same color AND moving average of the same color as well. Do you see any down sides regarding this setup to daytrade emini russell 2000? Would you modify something? I would really like to get your opinions/ideas. The more I use it, the better I get at feeling the market especially for my exits. I use 2 to 5 contracts to start with. Stop-loss is set at 0.80. Target? as long as it is going in the same direction, I am in. I get out of 1 or 2 contracts at the first sign of stalling or reversal. If I feel it doesn't go anywhere I get out as well. It's been only paper traded. No idea how well it would do in real life. The plan was to design a setup with a minimum of indicators(to avoid confusion) and with at least 2 time frames to get an idea of the general direction.
