I trade support and resistance (S/R) by buying S and selling R. I have been thinking lately about some tweaks to my entry methods. I believe I am currently leaning a little too far towards "confirmation" and losing a little too much "entry price". Plus, I find myself being small size for the best trades, and big for the mediocre and lousy ones, opposite of the desired effect. Supposing I have a potential R zone between prices 100 and 102 of some futures contract. Currently I will short it if I see a candlestick with a shadow in that zone, or if the market makes a lower high (LrH) in that zone. The problem is on great trades (see today's "t-notes today" thread in Misc. Futures) that bounce right off the zone, I only have one entry and therefore small size. What I am now going to test is just keeping a standing limit order entry in the zone. Then, when I get the current entry signal (a candlestick shadow or LrH) I will use that to add. If the market blast through the zone without reversing, I will be small size. When the trade works, I will always be big. I will of course get some small losses that I didn't have before, but my winners are going to double... seems like a good deal. Actually I have the stats to back it up now so I'm sure it's a good deal. So, I'd like to hear what y'all think about this. Also, if you care to share any other cool ways of trading S/R (many ways to skin a cat, right).
