Just have some questions: I think if we are able to spot ranging market then we can take advantage of it. Thank you, Regards, Keith. Submitted by Edward Revy on January 14, - Thank you, Keith While in the range, we use our defined range boundaries to enter and exit trades. Shorts are the exact opposite. Stops and targets have not been plotted. The first trade setup is 1. A down sloping trend should not connect a lower peak if the low of that peak has not broken lower than the previous mechanical trend line drawing tip!
Price does break above the trend line but takes 3 more candlesticks to break above the 34 EMA. This trade did not run very far and I will show later that you would have still made a profit on it. I will show two methods to take your profit targets. Our second trade is 2. The last green circle is simply highlighting that the trend line still interacted with price weeks after it was drawn.

I use the following:. You want to use obvious swings to draw your Fib and even is you used the full swing down on the first trade, you would still monitor price action at resistance.
Our first trade eventually rejects slightly below the 1. The second trade is using the full pull of the swing down. There is not an obvious swing level other than the original pivot. Since the system generated a negative return just like Sproule System did, its Sharpe ratio also came in negative. Also, the average losing trade of Prior to tweaking the system for backtesting purposes, I must admit that it already caught my eye because of its simplicity. Just a couple of EMAs and a trailing stop sounds simple enough, right?
But when I started mechanizing some of its rules, I realized that the system was far too simple for its own good. There were some unclear rules about entries and exits that might leave a newbie confused so I decided to deduct just a couple of points for newbie-friendliness.
