CatMan Trade

Postby Robert2617 » Fri Feb 02, 2007 1:59 am

I read on the http://mtrader.com website a while back about the "CatMan DayTrade" (there is a different one on their site now). I printed out the old one way back when so it could be recreated. This would be a good SM Trade Indicator.

How to Create it:

1.) Use on a 15 candlestick chart for wider-ranging stocks or 1 minute chart for steadier stocks with less momentum and more volume like MSFT, AAPL and CSCO.

2.) Add Stochastic: %K (P=14)

3.) Add MA's: MA5 and MA15

The Signals:

1.) The Aggressive Long - Consevative Cover:

A sudden drop in the %K to 0 and an upward curving in the MA5.

This is first early signal indicating a bottom.

2.) The Conservative Long - Aggressive Cover

A crossing of the MA5 above the MA15.

This is the second lagging or confirming signal indicating a bottom.

3.) The Aggressive Short - Conservative Sell

A sudden sharp spike in the %K to 100 and a downward curving in the MA5.

This is the first early signal indicating a top.

4.) Conservative Short - Aggressive Sell

A crossing of the MA5 below the MA15.

This is the lagging or confirming signal indicating a top.


The SM could be:
For number one you get a yellow that says AL-CC.
For number two you get a green with CL-AC.
For number three you get a yellow AS-CS.
For number four you get a red CS-AS.

Could be a one button indicator to save space.

Works both ways. Want to tackle this one Avery? Then you could go to their site, tell them about it and get banned. :) I think it would be a very good trade indicator. I wish I would have saved the chart image they had so I could post it for you. It looked like it would really work well.

If not maybe some one will find this info helpful. Cheers...

In case you decide to create this as radar, here is the formula for %K so you don't have to look it up.

%K= 100 x [(Recent Close - Lowest Low (n)) / (Highest High(n) - Lowest Low9(n))]

I use HORIZONTAL LINES now.

No more "squiggly" lines for me.
IT'S NOT WHAT YOU TRADE, IT'S HOW YOU TRADE IT!

Please do NOT PM me with trading or coding questions, post them in a thread.

That is why I was thinking it would ba a good SM. :shock:

Thanks anyway. I'll keep it on my wish list. I appreciate all you have done already. Maybe there is a Slot already created that these values would work in?
