You do NOT use HOURLY Buy Zone with stocks!!!

This is NOT a casino... all you need is ONE Buy Zone trade a day to make a nice profit.

Anyone drinking apple juice with ninjatrader?

I enter/exit using buy ask and sell bid on chart trader, but is there a more efficient way to enter and exit a trade? I find the spread to be a nuisance lol, it often kills a nice 5 or 10 cent scalping opportunity, especially during busy hours.

Who needs a good laugh? :oops:

Reason for going long:

1. Price bounced off support at 9:30, and the 5min green candle closed above the go-long line.
2. Thought there was an uptrend.

Shouldn't have gone long because:
1. Green candle closed against resistance (although usually aapl pushes through), so no room for going long.

Exited with some scratches.


EDIT: Just so I don't confuse anyone learning about the buy zone, this was NOT a buy zone trade, but just a bad trade lol.

I learned earlier this week that Quantopian will let you write and auto-trade user created algos written in Python on their platform with their hi-res data and trade via RobinHood (which lets you trade stocks commission-free):

https://www.quantopian.com/
https://www.robinhood.com/

There is also the option of hooking up an Interactive Broker account with Quantopian and letting your algos run live in the Forex market.

Has anyone out there translated any of TROs indicators to Python by chance? A shot in the dark but thought I'd ask. It might be fun to try and write an algo to milk the COWS commission free on the stock market.

That would be nice.

The code is simple. Just have to select a real good "cow" to milk.

Hi The Rumpled One,

I am a big fan. Really enjoy your videos and they make a whole lot more sense than all the garbage i have been fed along my trading journey.

I watched your vid on youtube about milking the cows; Simple yet so smart. I have a question as well as an idea i was hoping to ask if i may.

The last 100 days used to select stocks. This is basing the selection of stocks to trade the next day based on what and how the stock/s has/have been behaving in the last 100 days correct ?

No, not exactly.
It is used to find the best pairs to trade using the method.
And you only need ONE cow to milk everyday.
When that cow starts to "dry up", you move on to the next cow.
I traded TASR for over a year.
Same with GOOG and AAPL.
You can trade them over and over and they don't wear out...LOL!!

Thanks for your reply.

:) Thats Awesome.

When you say pairs are you saying the 2 stocks with the most days that price reaches Open + 10 and Open + 50 ? Or is it something else ?

I am going off your code in the Youtube video. (I am also not a great code reader, apologies in advance if i ask many questions)
