Today's results: 1. For beginner Rockets (See slow stochastic (14, 1, 3) trades 1 and 2. 2. For intermediate Ice Bergers (See fast stochastic (5, ,2, 3) Trades A, B, C, D, E.) 3. SCT (24 Trades, used 7 APA's at pionts marked "x"). People using the 30 min* method. Are operating under the following rules on 5 min bars, presently. They use price, volume and MACD only. Trade group I better than B Band volume MACD reversals: MAX/Min, Convergence, X over sequence. Reverse ASAP but no later than Xover. MACD BO's action in direction of BO with B Band volume or better. No trade Groups 1. No trading below Band minimum unless MACD is operating. 2. No trading in C Band VDU 2,500 or less. Volume burst group PRV volume >10K @ 30 sec, 1 min or 2.5 min Use FR** rules: 1. Burst is bar 3, enter immediately by bar color. 2. Automatic reversal on bar 4 or 5 ASAP when PRV is less than 10K 3. Exit on centering or far side of stall by bar 15.

The drift was to do 250 trades a year and make and average of 30 points a day on the DJXX. Since it took the first trade of the day it became known as the 30 min method. It ws designed to acheive a minimum income for survival during that period by doing one trade a day over 30 minutes. Currently most people use it all day. It is an intermediate level trading method as described. It started out as a beginner edge trade. **FR is the main methodological concept related to channels. It is not written about in most books and is not traded as an edge either. In ant trend their are two types of traverses. One makes most money by leaving the trendline and moving at high money velocity to better ground. The channel line opposite the trendline side of thechannel is where the trend resumption fails (Failure to Resume (FR)). A pull back or retrace conveys the price back to the right as a centering where the bounce occurs. On average this is a move up two 15 bars count the volume burst as bar 3. Bars one and 2 are needed to establish that the volume is low and well under 10K. The 10K PRV burst is a momentum burst. The trade is taken at early PRV reading of 30 sec, 1 min or 2 1/2 min. There is no price pop after that.
