The best run of winning days in a row I have had has been with the Trend Line Break (TLB) method (7 day without a losing trade, -a few break-even trades). But that was followed by a not so stellar run the next week. I have learned much about the TLB system but I feel that there are still a few missing things (e.g. my not so good week). The main rules I follow: 1) The trendline needs at least 3 points of contact, 2) The price needs to look like it is following a somewhat linear trajectory, 3) The trend line needs to have formed over a statistically significant amount of time. That last one is a little up in the air. I know that less than 20 minutes is not so good and that half a day or more is much better. I like to enter with a double lot size and exit the first lot after only 2 points of profit. I then use a stop loss that is one point above/below the pivot. This gives me a low risk trade (usually break even +/-), assuming I get my 2 point exit. The remaining lot should be taken at not less than 4-6 points profit, depending on the volatility that day. I know the stuff about how "fractal" the market is and that this method should work on any time frame; but I think that the lower time frames have more noise and will be less successful. The possible outcomes of a TLB are 1) flatten out and consolidate, 2) It was just a little noise and will resume the trend, and 3) It is a true trend reversal. Using volume or sector indexes like the SOX might help spot the non-reversals. Your thoughts are much appreciated!
