• @fitzy-fitzsimmons Hey man if you want to join a group with Mona and I let me know as it would be good to have a third opinion to run things by.

    Hey Fitzy, I am only testing the daily charts right now to fit my work schedule. Happy to discuss at some point.

    Is there a WhatsApp group going where we can ping ideas across?

    Cheers

    • Hi Sam, thanks for the reply. I don’t know of a whatsapp group, but Mona mentioned it in another message. I reckon i am at that delicate stage where i have done quite a bit of work and now i’m possibly looking for reassurance on what i have done!!. make sure to post what you can, thanks.

    Yep, I have exactly the same thing. Sorry I’ve been off the radar but I’ve been hammering through some backtesting this past 2 weeks testing the Cypher on some major pairs on the Daily timeframe. I Would be keen to share notes at some point!

    Hey Fitzy, I would use the X leg that you have chosen. To me the Z leg looks like it is not quite the final leg in an upward move before reversing. The X point looks like the high of the reversal point, if that makes sense? The Z point doesn’t look like part of the subsequent move that you identified with the X. I might be miles off here but…[Read more]

    • Cheers Sam. I am working through the pairs and i am a bit worried about misreading the impulse leg. I sometimes catch myself looking and thinking, “nah, that’s not one”, then scrolling along and seeing its a winner, then thinking “Hmmm, maybe it is a valid impulse leg”. !!!!

    That’s an interesting rule on your B/C leg not being the same candle. I hadn’t considered that. For my i can use a low point or the high/low of any pull back to use as the base for the X leg. For instance, there could be an extended move upwards that goes into consolidation. I can use any pullback on that move as a base for my X leg, as long as…[Read more]

    Great answer, George. I have been asking myself the same question this week during backtesting. Fitzy, if you have any rules you’d like to discuss then I’m happy to share some guidelines I’ve put in place for myself

    • Thanks Sam. I had a rule where a candle is not allowed to be, for example, the B and C point at the same time. In that case, i was just disregarding the pattern. Then i watched 12th April 2020 Q&A. Akil mentioned dropping down to a lower time frame to see what happened first, in order to make a decision. He also goes into detail about what to do…[Read more]

      • @sam-miller. I use Ninja Trader so i cant help you on the trading view sorry.

  • Hey all, I have a couple questions while I’m getting up and running on the platform.

    I am using a Macbook and the IG.com platform to develop my strategy and backtest my trading ideas.

    Is this going to be an issue? I notice that NT and MT are only for Windows so I can’t download them.

    If anyone has any insight please give me a shout

    Cheers
