Concur with that!

By day trading ~1000 trades per year I can feel the "sentiment" in the trading just by watching bid/ask and volume. Indicators and level II are just confusing.
Although I have indicators, they are the "last" thing I might look at before an entry.

Learning to take the cash is hard for most people. Greed is good...

Nice to see someone at SF like contrahawk that knows how to trade!

Just so happens ICO was on my short list for the 23rd and I made a killing. It is tanking further in the pre-market. Hope the Wealth Daily Readers took their money....

lol

yes, but good test. This test filter could find some good stocks

Still holding ICO for 15.51% gain on the day. Will dump it at the open tomorrow.

Keep up the testing :)

Thanks.

All good stuff. Thanks.

I keep pumping mechanical systems to take care of these items. It is also challenging to follow a mechanical system and not cheat.

What I use is a SF short and long filter, each with automatic multi-column sorting (thanks TRO) in each, causing the ONE stock to trade in rising to the top. Each of the two filters are monitored each day for cumulative serial performance to determine short or long for that day (filter performance naturally fades in and out). Using semi-automation at the broker, a "single" order (MOO, STOP, MOC) is placed that includes position sizing and volatility correction.

This all sounds complicated, but only takes minutes each day to plan the trade, place the order, and walk away.

Entry, exit and stop. Human emotion is the enemy.

Trade well.

lol. It took me a year+ to develop a successful mechanical system. I followed it 100% without cheating for 5 months and my account went up 125%. Then the market started to change and I continued to follow the system that had worked so well. I had learned to trust it. So, what I learned from this is that I needed two systems(long and short) and they both needed to be monitored for trend. Most people just follow an individual stock trend.....but, a filter also has a trend, or cycle.

One of the best ways I have personally found to stick with the mechanical system is to not look at the market during trading hours. Set the semi-automated orders the evening before the market opens. Doing this also makes a person "plan" the trade and reduces the human impulse to make an entry/exit when we know we should not. Like many, I lost count of the number of times I have entered into a trade knowing full well I should not.

So, you're not alone with struggling to following advice...lol
