The Market is Generous

The Indices are going wild. There is high volatility and we, the AIMSters love volatility.

Dow Jones Index is really going wild with 800 points up and down days.

Meanwhile our favourite DAX30 tries to mimic the BIG Dow giving us plenty of setups.

Below, is a picture of AIMS The Fruit method.

The Market is Generous but are YOU available? 
Sam got his share during london open hours, Jozef waited and traded the breakout during trending markets. I got in even later than that and ended up with 2 scalps and then reversal of the uptrend.


Technical Analysis Vs AIMS The Setup

The traditional way of technical analysis is to look for Supply Demand areas, check support and resistance, find out the key price levels where price seems to react, reverse or hold levels.

Compare that to the AIMS Setup method. An indicator based, rule based method, you will find that the former requires a considerable amount of time and attention and experience compared to AIMS The Setup.

Anyone can learn to trade the setup within a few weeks. It would take good 12-24 months to master, the so called, simple analysis using "naked charts".

The following series of charts show a trade I just took at the time of writing this.





Clearly Moving Markets - But No Signal

There are times when you see the Market is clearly moving in x or y direction but your system does not create a trading signal on the chosen time frame.

e.g. The EUR/USD this morning was clearly not going up. @Jasmien hinted in the chatroom that she thought it was stretched. And at that time it appeared to be continuing the uptrend.

Soon after the Big Bear Candle was printed.




So What can we do when its clearly telling you that its reversing or its going this way.
You don't want to break the rules of your method.

Here is a prime example.

Drop to the Lower Time Frame. Below I show M15 chart.


The picture clearly shows some good AIMS The Hunt Cherry Signals.  In the forum I also discussed a very cool way to catch such setups, on the M5 time frame. 
Its called the AIMS 10X Pattern. You can spot the M5 setup 1's while watching the H1 chart. 
Hope this helps 

AIMS The Setup vs AIMS The Hunt

Which one is Better? 
Well, it depends. Let's have a look at the following pictures of the trades I took on the GBP/USD.

First picture is that of GBP/USD H4 (Four Hourly) Chart.



This picture has three beautiful signals and three beautiful trades marked by distinct vertical lines so that you can identify all trades on the next chart that shows the same trades on the H1 (Hourly) chart.

This picture convinces me why Setup 1 is an Awesome Setup as well as why Hunt Method is even superior or  at least a great alternative. 
Superior because it requires less time to observe and trade this signal, requires less screen time and can be traded on higher time frames as well as lower time frames.

Alternative because people who can't trade the hourly chart can trade the 4 hourly chart and catch the same setup 1's that happen on H1. Same goes for H4/D1.



















Three Coloured Lines indicate trades that were taken as Setup 1 originally on H1 Chart.
But look at this h4 chart,  all 3 trades seems t…

The Mindset of a Professional Trader

There are two types of mindsets. One that is the opposite of the mindset required for consistently successful trading while the other the mindset of professional consistently successful traders.

The Non Professional Trading Mindset: When a novice, non professional trader sees a setup, (A Trading Signal)  many doubts hits the trader. Instead of looking objectively at the rules of their trading plan (assuming they have one since most don't even bother with this fundamentally important aspect of trading) they look for all the things that have nothing to do with their plan.

As a novice struggling trader you start looking for reasons that has nothing to do with your trade plan. In other words the trader loses objectivity. Though confusingly though, for most people, when its a wrong setup, or no setup, trader somehow, finds it very easy to take those trades. There is no hesitation and they jump in without thinking. That is one type of mindset.

This mindset is a disaster. The trader may …

How to remain Consistently Profitable - Control Drawdowns

The Most Important thing I've learnt in life , relating to trading, is that we should risk far less than 1% per trade. Yes, that is what we are told in most of the trading books to risk 1-3%. Even though a very small proportion of the trading books talk about this very important aspect of trading i.e RISK Management in the first place. But what they don’t consider is what happens if you have 10 losing trades in a row?
The Biggest Secret of Trading Success is: RISK MANAGEMENT. And risk management has a lot to do with this often-ignored concept called Drawdowns. A good method should always address Risk and draw downs. According to Investopedia


What is a 'Drawdown'A drawdown is the peak-to-trough decline during a specific recorded period of an investment, fund or commodity security. A drawdown is usually quoted as the percentage between the peak and the subsequent trough. Those tracking the entity measure from the time a retrenchment begins to when it reaches a new high. (ref…

Really and Honestly Trade The Setup 1

This setup is much more powerful than even I thought myself.

It just never seizes to amaze me. The Setup is a perfectly testable idea. Anyone can look at the rules, test it on past data and do a forward test. To date, Nobody has ever been  able to come to me and say, "this did not work". Why? Because "IT WORKS". How do you know that it works?

To Find Out, People join our forum, they go through the course material, start trading the simple method, they complete a batch of T20 (The T20 Principle has been our greatest achievement thanks to Mr. Douglas) testing the Setup 1 idea and nearly all of them get the following result.

33% winners 33% Break Even Trades and 33% losing ones.Winners are Twice as big as the losers. 
You will get 5% on average per T20 (risking only 1% per trade).

The Setup shows you where to put Stop Loss, Where to Take Profit and Where and When to move Stop Loss to Breakeven.
