Re: Combining GB with spread trend

A course like this is probably up your alley https://mystrategicforecast.com/lazyeminitrader/. Thanks pm, I have heard this guy previously. Not aware of how good he is in trading (and teaching), though I do not like his obsessive style of "I am nr.1 ", which is fairly often in the trading field, as...

Re: Combining GB with spread trend

I'm not a fan of arbitrary percent based trailing stops. Not a fan of it either, that'why I mentioned that for day trading I normally use a 2 ATR for the beginning, and as see the trend of the trade is losing momentum, then I decrease the slack of the trail. But you are right about one thing - its ...

Master Pm :D , I was having in my (mid-term) TODO to ask you something.. the right time just came ;D So, it might sound you not quite a wise, but I am relying a lot on trailing stop loss orders those days.

Re: Gold Has Outperformed Stocks Over The Past 20 Years

You want to look for as much proof in as many places as you can. In the technical charting books they call it confluence . The same way as in technical analysis there is no single indicator that can give you the complete confidence (as there is no such thing), so you use a confluence of different i...

Yep, important support levels like $279.13 rarely give way easily.
Its 278.34 now, listening to L'Inverno / Le quattro stagioni (Vivaldi) - that makes the moment even more dramatic ahahah

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

You have a nice discussion here. Making incorrect assumptions from statistically significant evidences is one thing, but trying to make conclusions out of small testing sample set and in such short time frames is completely different thing... As far as I can see there are approx. 10M tests done as o...

Re: Stock scream room

Double top's do not exist until they set a lower low. Yup, I am bit too quick and a bit of looking ahead (which obviously is my mind drawing dragons in the air), indeed crossing of the confirmation line is pending... Have struggled with some reversion trades in the past due to that (entering too ea...

Investment strategies are like diets.
Master dietologist, how do you see SPX recently ? Isn't the index forming a double top (of type Adam & Eve, according to Thomas Bulkowski ;D ) after 21-22 April ?

Re: The Bond Dream Room

There are multiple factors that go into the price of bonds As I haven't received the notification email from Fed (they promised me, but anyway... :D ) and as certainly you have more information than me - what's going on with their plans to buy corporate bonds ? Is that only a word (even though wide...

Re: Simple 4 ETF PP

Vil, do you reside in Europe? I just find it curious that someone has intimate knowledge of the ETF landscape on both sides of the pond. Yes, I do. Did bussiness travelling for quite a while (lived abroad as well..and still have US visa), but currently I am settled here , where I was born as well. ...
