CycleTRADER System Inputs

Section 1 - Start / End Time

Time

1a Start and End Time

  • If the system start time is set to 9:01 Chicago CST time and you live in California, then swap the 9 for a 7 and the end time from 15 to 13 hour stop (2 hours before) to match Chicago Time.

Don't know the time difference?

  • Note: These start and stop times are essential for the settings in CycleTrader Systems.

Essential

The start time is an essential part of the success of a system's performance.

  • You will discover that on the openings of markets USA time can effect the wins/loss ratios.

Example

  • My practice is to bypass the openings and give the market freedom to set up. Once the market(s) sets up and designate current trends, you will have plenty of opportunities to get in without the uncertainty of the openings.

Waiting

This waiting will support you in more wealth by trading the systems.

  • Furthermore, markets can also make a move on the opening's first 15 to 45 minutes, then shift and mess up trading for the rest of the day.
  • I propose to set up your systems XML files and test out many starts and stop times at the same time.
  • Just add the system a few times and change the times in each set before you run them all and see what performs the best.

Do you trade 24 hours a day?

  • If you are in a trade long and then the trend switches to short, you may be at a more notable loss. Then if the short trend is misleading and it then pushes back up, you will be at a dual loss.
  • My additional observation is to try not to force anything, secure your profit for the day and take your ball and go home.
