Forum: System: The Money Flow
If I was a betting man, odds are the S&P is headed south. We Are still above the 20 dma, but moving averages are all out of wack not at all the way you like to see them if your bullish and volume pretty low.
We are on an adx/dmi SELL signal, and the MACD is turning over. I exited my long positions Friday for quick $2 profit in QQQ last week. Technically my system is still long, but any downward movement Tuesday would change this. So I am in an wait and see mode.
Using a method of peeling off a trade as it moves into your favor let me turn quick profit in QQQ, move stops to break even creating a "risk free" opportunity. When price bounced off the 50 dma we played it safe and sold another 1/3. Turning a "risk free" trade into small $2 gain.
Friday our stop was hit. If market decides to hold current level, we will be looking to go long again. I've stop trying to predict direction and just way the evidence but be ready for what ever opportunity the market hands you. Sometimes it will be exactly opposite what you thought. A macd that is "turning over" can quickly turn back up, adx/dmi sell signal can quickly become a buy signal, price can turn a downward slowing 20 dma into flat or up sloping ma.
If you know what your signals, market can do what she wants too.

What is the C2 Score?
Collective2 rates every trading advisor in its database and assigns a score between 100 and 1000.
In general, a rating above 500 is good. A rating above 700 is excellent.
Collective2 Ratings are recalculated daily based on the entire performance history in our database. The exact formula we use is proprietary, but there are several key variables that go into the Collective2 Rating. One of the most important factors is the length of time we have been able to observe the performance of the trader. Another key factor is the amount by which the trader over-performs or under-performs the S&P 500 index. Finally, the choppiness of the trader's results is taken into account. Certainly a more consistent trader will be rated more highly than a trader with erratic results.
