* UPDATE IN RED BELOW ORIGINAL POST
This thread will focus on using the MTF(Multiple Time Frame) Stochastic.
This thread draws its inspiration from the Genesis Matrix System (http://www.forexfactory.com/showthread.php?t=373796 )
Thanks to RJ and the others for letting us start this Thread where we will focus on all variations of their 1 min System.
Please feel free to post all relevant 1 min charts here that you wish to share.Together with any description that you might feel useful in explaining why did what you did.
This not the place to have long winded debates and arguments about who's system or settings are better than the other.EACH TO THEIR OWN
I really hope we all can share what we use here and I for one am looking forward to share my trades as well as learning from others and improving myself.
Good luck and Good Trading
Please remember that this is a 1min thread and that you can find the basics of the systems discussed here in the Genesis Matrix System thread.
10 / 09 / 2014
So after a lot of work on this system and myself in the last 9 months it only vaguely resembles the original version posted here in the beginning
This method has moved closer to the the Genesis method using everything like the original setup excluding the Stochastic. Proving that modeling something that is already working is much better than building a new.
The newest version is available on post ( http://www.forexfactory.com/showthre...91#post7749891 )
For the first 133 pages please focus on Strada's views and trades as I trade very very similar to him now and that has always been the/my overall goal.
From page 133 I read the system much like he does.At least I hope
No need to read through everything.If you are really interested then please download everything you need from the Genesis Thread and ask if you need anything specific that is not yet provided in the thread that you might see me or someone else using here.
I WILL UPDATE HERE WHEN I STOP
TRADING THIS SYSTEM
So unless stated I am trading this system everyday
Nice one Rooi...I wish you success with your thread. I'll drop by from time to time and show some trades. I especially like to scale in trades on the M1 TF, but today isn't the day for that!
Sorry for asking !!!! What is the green dotted line in the chart ?
The green dotted line is the 50 Simple Moving Average
Unfortunately I dont have the rights to write in the great Genesis thread to wonder there, but I wonder why is everyone still using the misleading form of MTF stoch in their charts examples as verifications why their take the trade... we already got great MTF stoch which shows the right values thanks to the Xaphod http://www.forexfactory.com/showthread.php?t=381999 so why dont use it?
Many M1 trades backtest exaples posted by Jimi in Genesis thread are simply invalid, so it would be great to not to repeat the same mistake here
Take a look on your last chart example:
Thanks for sharing your views and information.Please feel free to post any relevant information that you have found useful when trading the 1min MTF Stoch.
Lets try and refrain from being negative about RJ,The Genesis thread or anyone posting valuable information as this is simply not what the thread is about.
Hope to see some of your chart and trades that can help the process for all who want to trade a variation of the Gen system.
I for one favor forward testing and live trades taken.Backtesting has limited use when working on a actual trade system or philosophy
Nothing personal about RJ, he just failed to reply a PM that's what spiraled into that. I do visit the GMS thread now and then, think I'd read post #1 again.
Recall I asked if I could post my charts?, I try not to break ranks.
I was not trying to say I have a better system, trading is very very personal.
Looking forward to learning from you and others who would post.
Peace "Madiba Style"
Yes sure.Post charts.Share analysis,experience and any useful information.
Looking forward to learning from you too
I see the difference in the 2 Stochs you used on your chart as example, I see that the first one crossed earlier, closer to the reversal at the extremes.
s which do you favour?, obviously the first one I guess can you clarify which one is being erroneously being used and which you prefer? Peharps you could post that one here?
Rooi I see you don't use the ASC trend 2TF for your M1 trading, may I kindly ask what is your theory in leaving it out.
To me personally the Stoch 15 is the most important of the all the tools.
Bearing in mind that I only normally trade with clean charts with one Moving Average all these indicators are plenty if not too many already.
I will post examples later as im pretty busy till Jan 2014 being holiday time and all
Look forward to seeing some of your chart and learning from you
+14.5pips for this morning after taking a nice -21 (-7 X 3) on the GU as my first trade.
Have family here so not trading the whole day.Just trading the opens for now.Will spend a lot more time in front of the screens from next year.
Looks like I left some on the table and there was a lot more to get on the EJ and GU. Like I said I have to run out.
Hope you guys had a good morning
You where saying your most important indi is the M15 Stoch I am unsure why you took the short UJ on chart one and the short GU on chart 2 both it seems the M15 stoch was crossed towards up direction??
Edit, please excuse me, maybe I am reading it wrong, does red arrow represent entry then dotted red extend to exits?
The first trade on the GU does not fit 100% with stoch your right.We do have to remember that the Stock only prints its actaul posistion every 15min like I show whit the red lines.
The second GU trades fit much better whit the rules and stoch
The UJ trade went sideways right after entry and made the green line wander on the top side of the red.I was looking for the JPY to go down as they were both sitting at Supply on the 5min TF
All the trades except for the first GU trade never went above the recent highs so no need to panic about the small DD they entered.
They could have gone the other way for sure.
I am still in the "developing" part of my rules for this system and will be paying a great deal of attention to how or what can be improved.I know you have traded your variation of the Gen system for a while so will be looking what I can learn from you.
I have only been trading this system for 4 trading days now.
Please let me know if there is anything you want to me explain a bit more
Yip red lines run from entry to exit
