Friends of Kreslik,

I cant believe its been 6 years since I started trading and found a home here at Kreslik. The things in my journal looking back have all been a process that enabled me to be where I am today. I dont think there is much more I can say or show traders that hasn't already been said or done throughout the various threads. From zlines to momo, RB's, Mo-n-Go, BB bands, even the simple ema's that used to make me wait for a better entry.
I am going to change the direction of my thread as of today. I wont be on everyday due to I have a tradingrule that I cannot work on my new project and or hang out on forums. I initiated this rule about 5 months ago due to I always seemed to get distracted and my trading results would suffer. I would whine to a couple of my trading friends and they always had the patience to get me back on track. I know longer look for other things, what im doing is producing. Ramble....Ramble.....

What im looking for is ideas for a Robot.
I have a couple of years experience messing with them and programming them to the best of my ability and have made some progress.
Ideas for the bot must be price action based. Im not looking for indicator based trading and things of that nature.
The bot im developing does not have to make more than 1/2 percent per week.
Im looking to put together code that will take alot of trades, and make enough to cover the spread.

I have a basic skeleton bot and like I said im looking for ideas to add to it to improve it. Im running it on Trade Station only to start due to the instability of mt4. Im am doing very minimal optimization on the bot for I want it to work in all markets all the time. Is this a pipe dream? maybe...but i believe I will be successfull. Anyone willing to comment or add positive input and or ideas please do so here.
If this doesnt draw any takers I will continue to develop this alone, besides trading is a lonely profession.

Yes, good luck doji.

I look forward to your further posts here (that is, knowing you've made 5%)

I have absolutely no idea how you would get a robot to mimic a manual PA trade. I always thought you needed to get a set of indi to mimic the PA trades and then program them into the bot.
Is price closing higher or lower than something? Simple yet powerful question. ..MO

I have sat staring at the screen many hours between Asian and London sessions to watch garbage. No volitility. The hourly momentum holds true in my mind as long as the colorchange doesnt break. Trading Rb's one way will get you in late. Trading them another will get you awesome entries. Its a matter of trading what you see. Many examples of different ways to trade the RB's. Momentum was behind me, my RB broke, went long, thats it.

Regardless. I've been trading like this for months. h1 zline, rat m15. Its the only way I understand price action.

I find that I'm late into the trade if I wait for 'my understanding of the rb'. I might be missing something here.

RB holding currently as price is hitting 50% of h1 momo. Watching for m15 fails.

Anyways, thanks for the updates.

It stands for 'rock-box' & is basically two turning points connected to form an area of s/r.

Bot Idea, Enter @MA, then BBand if profit target is not hit on first entry.
Then a third time after a 3 bar push, IF 2nd profit target is not hit( 1st entry b/e)
