I would like to start with I am trying to program my strategy to be systematic. When you did your talk with Jim just the other day, I asked you, “did you have a programmer you could refer to me?” My conclusion from what you said is I need to learn C++. as I do not think you can trade C Sharp on MT4. I trade the Forex and have been relatively successful. I have been using the 1-hour chart to determine the overall trend for the 15 min chart. I have been thinking that maybe I should use the 30 min chart or some other indicator for an overall trend. So I would like to know what you use if anything for your overall trend. But the big elephant in the room today is since December I have been traded well, but in the last 3 and a half weeks the market has not gone my way. I have not been able to figure out what is different. I know that you and Jim both talk a lot about the different markets and that you cannot always trade the same for each market. I have to figure out how to know what the different markets are and when they change so that I can adjust how I trade. If you could give me some insight here that would be very helpful. My goal is to be totally systematic within the year. I fully understand that being systematic does not mean I do nothing. I have so many ideas that I would like to pursue trading, but it is hard to have the time to do the work testing the ideas and trade the one the seams to be working.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
You seek to code an hourly bar system? I would stop that. Stop the day trading. More.
