Hi Steve, dont know if you remember, a while back you mentioned about trading the open. i'm very thankful for your advise and have been doing a bit of research and testing with some of the index futures. Looks very promising to me though I hope you can help me with regards to a few things that seem to be bothering me... i cant seem to figure them out too well. Again, thatâs probably my inexperience and inability at this point. WIN LOSS Since the examples you used were on the ER2, I guess Iâll use that as the example. I noticed that the time figure really depends of each oneâs taste, though generally the win-loss ratio is give or take 50%, but this is taking all entries and no pattern recognition involved. Will still need to work that. Also noticed that the method is effective for volatile markets. It looks okay but I know you do better than that % and was hoping you could guide me towards steps on improving what I have so far this. As a follow up to this, when to you choose to not take an entry on the break. INIT STOP Initial stop loss, basically Iâve tried a few, one to place at the opposite of the range, and the other at a certain % of volatility based on the marketâs 10day avg range. However, there are still quite a few days, every now and then that break one side and in the next bar or 2 goes the other side and fakes again, causing 2 losing entries, and chopsâ¦ only to break out maybe 10-15min later. Is there a way to avoid these? ENTRIES Do you keep the range on for the whole day, and keep going long & short on the breaks even later in the day or just take a fixed amount of entries for a day. NEWS Also wanted to ask what is the best way to handle economic releases at 9:47 and 10am, if you are on board at the time? Do you get out to limit risk or hold through the news? if you arenât in the market at the time, how long is the range valid? This is seldom because of the volatility though, but just wondering. when the break of the range occurs at or just 1 min or so of the eco release, would it be advisable to go? I ask because of the choppiness I notices that occurs right in the 2-3mins after Iâd guess with people guessing how the reaction is and trying to hit the gates earlier than othersâ¦ so is it better is stand aside and let it settle or get in quick. I guess what Iâm asking is if the risk is worth it or not based on experience. EXITS Iâve been trying some exit techniques but cant seem to find a good exit technique. Based on experience which is better, fixed, trailing,etc.? DURATION This would, I believe be related to the exitsâ¦ as to knowing how long to hold. When does a trade that you get into become stale, by that I mean, isnât doing much so time to move on. And what signs to say, letâs stay just a bit more. Still probably have at least 3-4 months of watching and figuring out before having anything satisfactory. Hope you donât mind my silly questionsâ¦ Thanks so much!
