In a recent thread, dbphoenix wrote: "The futures strategy, as far as I can tell, has nothing to do with the equities strategy, which, also as far as I can tell, is a simple retread of Wm O'Neil, except for the profit-taking aspect. That I have no problem with since I used CANSLIM for 12 years before I switched to daytrading." After reading almost everything posted by Jack during the last 2-3 years, I completely agree with this statement. My impression of Jack was that he had made money over the years trading stocks, not index futures, and that his futures threads just ended up demonstrating that his wider, non-stock-specific views of the market were actually inadequate for trading futures (i.e., he was misled by his own success at trading stocks into thinking that he had something to offer to futures traders). This isn't to say that what he was writing was all nonsense, since he managed to repeat many things that others have been saying long before he came along. With respect to the application of specific indicators and settings to futures trading, however, IMHO he was largely in the dark, and his stuff would only come close to working if you added a real edge (such as a stock that is likely to move in the anticipated direction, or all those non-specific, non-indicator things that are not of Jack's invention). I don't want to waste (our) time arguing about this, but perhaps this thread could be a place to collect traders final impressions of Jack and his strategies.
