For 2013 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!
I was working with one of my clients today, trying to provide some feedback and possible different angles to add for his day-trading.
He is a crude trader mostly and I gave him a few ideas and the main one I would like to share today is adding different type of charts to your arsenal if you are a short term trader.
Mostly I am referring to tick charts, volume charts, range charts and renko charts.
The main advantage of using these type of charts versus lets say a 10 minute chart, is that if there is action/ volume/ price movement in the market, the bars will complete faster, hence generating a signal faster rather than you waiting for 10 minute bar to complete. Also when the market is slow, not much price or volume action, the bars will complete slower and will not generate a signal simply because time has passed.
I recommend looking at 15 minute charts and then as you go lower in time frame, add range or tick charts as the “lower time frame”.
I will be more than happy to expand on this topic in upcoming posts or answer questions you may have via email.
