Re: Trials & Tribulations of a Rookie Trader

Quill,

Are you playing both "steeds" today?

If yes, how many shares?

If you pick one I will pick the other and we will have a "steed" race.

Re: Trials & Tribulations of a Rookie Trader

Quill,

The race horse analogy is perfect! There in lies the rub to all of this trading methodology. My hope was for Mike's Golden Scan was to find horses that are either coming to the gate, in the gate, or just out of the gate.

Re: Trials & Tribulations of a Rookie Trader

Quill,

To refresh my memory could you please set forth your FW-10 approach?

I have the following setup on FreeCharts:

1. FW-10/ MA 8;
2. Volume;
3. CCI 14 Red line at +100 and Green line at -100; and
4. MACD [more]

Re: Trials & Tribulations of a Rookie Trader

Quill,

Wait for the pullback to the 8 sma line if using the FW-10 method?

The sine wave as in the MACD signal line correct?

If using 20/200 ema the pullback to the 20 is a ways off.

Re: Trials & Tribulations of a Rookie Trader

Quill,

Nice score with NVDA. My scanning did pick up on it, but I failed to pull the trigger. Plus I am still in paper trading to see if my methodology is reliable.

Another very helpful scan. I now have 30 thanks to you.

Once again you come thru BIG TIME.

I am learning fast that the Holy Grail may very well be not found, at least by me.

Your scans will be plugged in today after the close. They look great and I have high hopes for [more]

Re: Forever stock to own

Quill,

Thanks for the heads up with ESRT.

I would trade it using the CCI 14 zero line and let it go down to the -100 line.

FYI I have not re-bought the shares. I just have a $400 loss. I will take your advice and wait 31 [more]

Re: Forever stock to own

Quill,

I have not run my scan yet.

But ESRT looks good except that the CCI 14 is in overbought territory. Wish it was at the zero line and moving up.

Does it look like potential buy from your point of view?

Re: Wash Rule Trading in an IRA

So lets see if I have this right.

If you trade solely within a traditional or roth ira NO wash rule.

Ex. In my roth I buy 100 shares of xyz on 3/4/16 and sell at a lost on 4/4/16 of $400 no wash rule. If I buy the same stock xyz on [more]

Have spent about an hour tweaking the new MGS per your suggestions.

The percentage down and up from 1% to 9& was interesting. The 5% number seems to be the sweet spot. However I like the idea of running scans from 0.01 to [more]
