    Is there a way of improving this on par to the commercial ones? Some trader that followed and posted in the 1k-100k thread over at FF made their own EA and now manages accounts with it. Do a search for automan for info on that at FF and his blog site.

    MysticGenie said that he was almost using only the Demark lines indicator.

    Find me the exact rules and I will see what I can do. His posts are not very clear.

    Anyone find the rules on the Demark Trader EA? I read Mystic Genie's post as well and it is a bit confusing. :-|

    Here is a little information that I found on Mystic Genie's strategy (FF):

    Now the strategy in brief (Mystic Genie):

    The strategy is very simple with some fine nuances which I'll not be able to explain fully as I also use my intuition a lot. I use simple trend following strategy based on 4H, daily & wkly TF (Pin Analysis as per James 16 thread)--- I use 1H TF for entries & exits---I also apply candlestick pattern, laguerre (see Imransait's thread) & Demark lines (Mouteki thread) for estimated target points---now I do not use any firm SLs---if the position goes a/g me (say by 100-150 pips in case of G/J), either I'll bail out & reverse (if the reverse trend is strong)or will simply hedge to try to come out b/e (minor retracements)---at the same time I keep an eye on wkly COT report (see cateful's thread) & equity markets (a big time for me as I am trading carry pairs) to assess market sentiment for that particular day---I avoid early US sessions (that's when i usually sustain my losses & market is also little undecided) & try to figure out next market direction from late US session onwards, e.g., if you see dow is closing strongly, you can be assured that asian markets will open strongly & G/J will move by atleast 50-100 pips from late US session onwards---I prefer to trade in late asian & early european sessions (besides being free from my work usually, i somehow can feel those markets better)---this is the time I'll try to increase my leverage to maximize my gains---I follow fib numbers to increase account size i.e., 1,2,3,5k----I decide on lot size as I risk b/w 15-30% on each position---I trade manually btw, no preset orders for me---i'll never forget the feeling of putting in 60 std lots in a mini account---lol

    SL --
    You can use 2 bar highs/lows in that particular TF, or 1.5 times the ATR of the particular TF---depends on your pain tolerance--lol


    Last, but not the least, BEGINNERS, PLEASE DO NOT TRADE THIS WAY WITH YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE, UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE DOING & THE CONSEQUENCES (TRADE YOUR PLAN, PLAN YOUR TRADE).

    <<>>

    ---well, my entries & exits are similarly based on the threads I mentioned above---nothing different---maybe I will exit little earlier as I have more lots than usual in play---one of the reasons most likely due to my style of trading, i.e., I trade on longer TFs, hence my SLs very wide like, say, 150 pips or more---and if my SL gets hit, the trend is most likely reversing---

    on Rogers' query, I only take on longer TFs 1H & above---

    On Euclid's query, good question---although I don't follow the equation closely---I start increasing my position size from 10% of my capital onwards as my winning percentage increases along with my confidence ultimately capping at 30% of the floating capital.

    The red arrows my entry & exit points (i.e., down arrow= sell; check mark= exit; up arrow= buy)--- The blue arrow is put by the indicator when the trendline breaks, but be careful of fake break-outs as in this case when a pair is ranging---

    Default More info on system from Mystic Genie...

    I am going to post excerpts of some of the private replies I sent to my fellow traders in last few wks to explain my system---hope this will answer many of your queries:

    "I use Keltner-channels for possible entries & exits. You know that the upper & lower bands are std deviations from the middle band (10 MA). So on a longer TF, during ranging period usually PA will be limited within these bands ( you buy at lower band & sell @ upper band---when the market is trending, then, you sell when price goes below lower band & buy above upper band the middle line (10 MA) being your SL in this case---ofcourse I take into consideration other factors, but K-channel helps me orient to the current PA---"

    "COT report shows positions till last Tuesday, but trading still goes on till friday---I will give an example from this wk's COT report---we see that overall JPY longs are increasing & we saw the JPY appreciating almost till Friday except for the late plunge---so by now, JPY long positions even higher than what's shown in last tuesday (ofcourse, OI may have decreased too--which I'm eliminating for simplicity sake) & notice how commercials are gradually increasing their shorts---now, we also saw a late surge in US equity markets in Friday signifying some return of risk appetite due to overcorrection since last 2 wks ( a retracement is due before another plunge---bear trap, unless Fed decides otherwise)---so, the whole picture suggests the probability of JPY weakening if the current sentiment from Friday close prevails till the disclose of any new information from US housing front.

    Also, compare w/ this the Aud positions, gold & lifting of political clout post election suggesting possibility of further aud strength atleast till early next wk (a good play will be Aud/Jpy)---in fact, I won't be surprised if there is a gap up on sunday opening in all aud pairs--"

    [Above example from 11/20/07 COT Report]

    "I use TA to perfect my entries & exits, while fundamentals help me to see the market direction---I'll take a position when TA agrees w/ fundamentals---I think, Laguerre alone is sufficient if you are trading on longer TFs, as I have wider SLs (taking into account S & R lines) to weed out the market noise---if my SL is hit, most likely the trend is reversing & I take a reverse position to recoup my losses---"

    "Regarding SL, you cannot change the ATR setting, unless you have a customized one---Otherwise, just put the indicator in the chart window & see the value for that particular TF & multiply by 1.5 (say in GBP/Jpy H4 TF ATR is 80 pips, then your SL 120 pips)---
    Well, as I said, the more you risk the more you may gain, but at the same you may lose as well--to be frank I risk 5-10% per position & usually I trade only one pair at a time---initially I will only aim for 40-60 pips so that I get 5-10% back if the trade goes in my favor & I'll have 2-5 trades in a day if the set up is right (I need to win 60% of the time to stay +ve)---as the account grows, you may become more discretional, provided you don't lose your head---lol"

    TA--Technical Analysis
    ATR--Average true range of a currency pair

    <<>>

    ---you will have lots of fake outs when market is ranging---longer the TF lesser the fake outs---that's where comes the discretionary part of this system, which cannot be codified in a system!
    you will be able to weed out some of the fake outs by observing closely candlestick pattern (i.e., if you see a reversal pattern---avoid going long or short in the direction of break, etc. ...)

    Default MG Trade Example - G/J Sell

    I already explained my method & I attached once screenshot as well few posts ago---I use same laguerre setting on longer TFs (i.e., 0.85, 0.15), only for further confirmation along other indicators as said before---
    one more screenshot attached of today's trade (G/J Sell @ 226.67 closed @ 225.31---+ 136)

    Default Another MG Trade Example -

    Thanks a lot for all the enthusiasm---I'll post charts whenever I find time to do that---Here is one for Gbp/Cad I was in: Gbp/Cad B 2.0650 closed @ 2.0850 (+200)
    See the PA bounced from the lower band of K-channel & also hrly support, as this pair is on a strong upmove---

    Default And another MG Trade Example -

    This is another interesting trade I took on Gbp/Nzd---
    Gbp/Nzd: S 2.7520 closed @ 2.6880 (+640)
    Notice, PA failed to break thru 2.76+ atleast 3 times---hence a safe trade w/ small SL (compared to this pair's ATR!)---The fall stopped @ 2.6731 for now which is again a good support line for this pair---In fact, this pair is range trading within this band for quite some time now---Hence, a reverse trade also is a good trade w/ relatively small SL---
    Happy trading,
