Hi James,

the latest edition from Richard has the market key and all other pages found in the original version.

It has even a nice (updated) color sample section, the same as in the original version (much better to read through).

So all you need to crack the code is Richards latest version.

The Book ...

Hi James, Richard did not figure out the system and thus could not make sense out of the "market key". To avoid to much confusion and with no good answers on hand, he decided to publish the book without the market key ... Many complained and he re-published a newer version a little later: http://ima...

Thanks,

this is what I am currently doing. I was hoping to hear / see a more quantitative approach.

I get the feeling that creating great exit signals is as much an art as the development of great entry signals is.

Sir G, C++.NET is in an odd position. Microsoft are punting C# as the .NET language for C++ and Java programmers, so the inclusion of C++.NET as a core language that ships with both the .NET Framework SDK and Visual Studio.NET can create confusion. The silver bullet going for C++.NET is that it is t...

Damian,

thanks for the reply. The results I get are not better than my current approach (opposing signal / stop of NEW signals).

Still lokking ...;-)

EXIT signals ...

Hi There, I think I have a unique problem. I have an outstanding entry signal generator finding me the best trends in the making and keeping me away from "non-movers" BUT I am missing a good exit strategy. Now I wonder if anyone of you did any research in this area and has some empirical proof that ...

Just my $0.02: I hear many good ideas about diversification and portfolio management but I see a lot of focus / efforts on something, which is important, but has only a minor effect on your equity line at the end of the day. IMO, applying just plain common sense to your securities selection, avoidin...

I wrote part of the following in a previous post but I think it is worth repeating here: When you use a commercial or freeware program, it will most likely do a great job at its core competency and those core functions usually work without major bugs. HOWEVER, people tend to push the limits and try ...

Nice try .... read my posts and the TradeStation-Folks responses @ the TradeStationWorld-Forum.

On paper it works great ... but when you get to the nifty details ... it does not give you the results you expect.

Thanks for the reply though.

Jimmy, I want to highlight just one element of short-term vs. long-term trading. The shorter the time frame the more random the movements. The "significant" moves are the ones, which last at least a few weeks and sometimes much longer. REAL money is made with the significant moves over the long run....

RS: Nope, it is the SUDDEN huge movements of a stock which gives you this extra RISK. As you might know, companies can LIE in their financial statements an in recent month many were caught doing so. In the FUTURES markets, you will not find this kind of risk. To give you a flavor: AFFX 4/4/03 or 6/1...

Hi, I did some limited trading since beginning of the year, using Jesse Livermore's trend signals. They worked great ... but the danger is in the uncertainty of stocks in general. You will never be sure if / when a new ENRON pops up in your portfolio ... dragging your equity line WAY down ;-) The "o...

Sir G. Why do you want to limit yourself thinking about a "minimum" average return? Just choose the "best" place for your money. With limited funds, just swap the worst trade with a new one. If you have a good system the return will show up all by itself. PS: Trying to predict / expect a certain att...
