I had it for a few months about a year ago - it was $99/mo and around $5 or so for data without have a brokerage acct. 

Matt, where is the link to Zoom room?

Thanks for the explanation. I don't have Stockcharts so I just redraw your lines and set alarms on ToS. Seems to work okay for me. I'm for anything that makes your jobs easier. 

Jason, Steve would tell you

big follow through on MOBL

Jason, Steve would tell you to trade your plan :-)

 erikvik, PRTS is moving about 63 cents a day. The range of that 1 minute candle was 70 cents, more than it normally moves in a day. Your spread  was 29% of what it normally moves in a day, which should have been plenty. In addition the next 1 min candle had a low of 9.16, so price came back in your range. Seems to me you should have been filled. Sucks that you weren't. I use ToS. I've gotten some REALLY bad fills when I've just done buy stop orders, so I've switched to buy stop-limit orders. I vary the stop-limit spread based on the ATR of the stock. For example, for a stock that moves $1 a day, a 5-10 cent stop to limit spread should get you filled, at least it usually does with ToS.  A stock that moves $10 a day may need a larger spread since it can generally move quicker in a short timeframe. 

Possible resistance zone going way

GDX not a sweet candle

Tried to short PALL earlier around $226, but order rejected on Think or Swim  - shares not available to short. :-(

vinylchild, you can trade ES

market extended

Posted by craigm on 6th of Feb 2020 at 10:05 am

vinylchild, you can trade ES Futures on TD (ThinkorSwim)- symbols:  /ES, /MES (micro ES). You have to apply for a Futures Account to trade them but you can still chart them without the Futures Acct

Great Trade Matt! Thanks for the early Christmas present ;-)

Nice trade, thank you Matt. Looking forward to when you bring the ES system online for members as well.

Matt, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. 

thanks Steve. ToS should be

Thanks for the insight Matt.

SPY trade numbers

Posted by craigm on 4th of Oct 2019 at 02:52 pm

Thanks for the insight Matt. I joined back in July and figured it would be "easy" emotionally to adhere to the SPY system. On the SPY trades back in early Aug you recall we had a draw down then as well and I could not get myself to take the CCI subsystem trade because the other trades were so underwater at the time. FEAR. This time, there was no hesitation in taking the second entries for both subsystems. It comes with a better understand of how the systems work and increased belief in there positive performance over the long term. It is a definitely a learning process.  I remember you mentioned before if you are going to trade the SPY systems don't pick and choose which entries to take. Thank you to you and Steve for all you guys do to help us. 

Agree with cozz101.

Hey Matt, the last SPY System entry (Oct 1) should say QE BTS, not Trend, under Subsystem Column. Thanks.
