My current setups are based on Al Brooks. The trader, not the actor.
So the first thing I look for is markets that are good for trading. That is to avoid trading ranges.
H1/L1during a spike
That is about it.
These are no longer my current setups
They are similar to what I still do, but not really the same. I guess I really need to document what I am doing now.
A quick little fade, usually for two or three ticks. Most trades under five minutes. This is currently my main setup. I wait for a breakout to fail and take the trade going back the other way.
GeeBee + MadTrend
A fade, mainly on pullbacks. Tries to fade ONLY in the direction of MadTrend. Fewer trades, but much longer runs.
This the setup I am currently researching and sim trading. It looks for traders to run stops over lunch when volume is light.
I identify when the stops should be in the correct position to run stops, then I place limit orders to go along for a little bit of the ride.
All my entries are limit orders and most exits are limit orders also. Every once and a while, I will bail out of a position with a market order.
