How Do You Trade Reversals? [Fruit Method]

I will continue to trade the DAX on M1 time frame using The Fruit Method 

I will also trade DOW M1 during the NEO Session 

1. Play The Market Open Drive (Catch the open breakouts etc)
2. Play the rest of the period post Open (after the first 20min) using Fruit method rules etc


However, I'd like to remind ourselves this. 

What is the Fruit Reversal Entry For?
The Fruit Reversal Mechanism is for, like the name suggests, Possible Reversals.

The message is plain and simple. 

But when we start to trade, we start trading every time we see the Fruit Bar Entry Signal. 

*That ain't it Chief*


Always 


The Fruit Entry Signal is ONLY valid when the RUBBER BAND principle Apply. 

You always have to ask, yes, lets do reversal but *Reversal of WHAT* 
> has the market "Pulled away from the gator too far too fast?" 
> has price broken all the levels and gone so far up so quick that it cannot sustain it?

For me I trade the OPEN Drive, as the name suggests, at the Open. 

and I may utilise Box, momentum, fruit or box entry to catch the first move. 

add on as much as possible keeping risk under control. 

then soon after when price consolidates. Now I'll only trade the Setup breakouts, may use apple to get into next wave up. (I won't call it wave 5.)

so there it is. And I will post here one or two times, how the session went.

How do I Trade in AIMS Live Trading Room

#raklian asked a question. He wanted me to further clarify a concept.

I thought to myself, well that's the reason I presented you with AIMS The Fruit 180 Pages eBook with explanation of that concept and plenty of pictures.

I was waiting for that ideal pattern to happen just after the Fed's Powell was about to speak. Meanwhile Fed Bullard was also chirping.

The Dow, such a mighty beast it is, very volatile these days, was sideways on the M1 chart. It created a Box, It needed that breakout. And finally it happened.

So the following Screenshots shows how the ANSWER to The Question was presented in THE FORM OF LIVE TRADES. It was fun.


Story of the Campaign on DOW

At News Price broke. up, met with resistance and created an angle after dashing up nearly a 100 points.

Creates angle and Fruit signal becomes the last piece of the puzzle. I get to test the waters with .1% entry at fruit. FE

Immediately it drops 2 bars, and starts to pull up. i'm thinking, is it just a pullback, will it go up instead I'm waiting. (trying not to get out, telling myself, you will be proven wrong when and only when it goes above the high of the fruit bar)

That helps. I'm saying to myself, its Stage 2 now. hold on.
Look for FAO. (Add on signal)
at the bar 20.00 I realise, oh shoot, i have missed FAO, but had my FB entry. so FB (box add on) kicked in below box.

Price pulled back up, to where my FAO would have been, i took market order.

FAO was 0.5% and FB was 0.4%. now fully loaded.

Price still in stage 2. I could now lose 0.5% of account if it goes up since Box high created above the bar of 19.59.

at 20.06 price breaks, immediately I say to myself, shoot, I could have added one more below the box, it would have been .3%.

in two bars 20.06-.07 it dropped by 72 points. now x 3 = running profit shot up by 216 points. NICE
then it pulled up a little I hiteh exit for the add ons banking the profits.
and started trailing the last entry FE .. which I exited now as  Iwrite.

Trailed the last (position) one until it lost angle. then decided to close on green line close.

There is pleasure when you are able to follow your trade plan correctly.

He asked what do you mean by Looking at the Overall Pattern. Because I said, don't look for an entry signal alone. We don't do that. We look for the overall pattern. Which means, "Look at the full 100-140 bars analysis". Which means, look for the Question 1. Where was price before?
 Question 2. Where is Price Now?
 Question 3: Where is it going? 

The Signal was there , so I pointed to the 19.51 Bar. Look at it RIGHT NOW










How to Catch Early Entry into a Crash 1600 Pips

Well if you were trading the daily time frame you'd have seen a nice setup during december.

We discussed it a few times in our chatroom.

The spike happened in 2019 but the entries were 2 weeks ahead of it in 2018. You did not have to panic, because you were correctly positioned.

When I work with new traders they often try to cover their mistakes when showing me their trades. As if they are trying to impress me or something. For some reason everything thinks they should know how to trade from Day 1. This is what I said to one of our AIMS new friend.

"Hey, we don't learn to walk straight out of mothers womb. Life is a continual process of Growth. We attempt to do something fist time. to find out how much we need to learn. Now you know how much you need to learn. Will you take the challenge and become the BEST OF YOU? The TRADER that you aspire to be is at the end of the journey that you have started. The way to get there is tough but the rewards are highly lucrative and fun.!!! "

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.

The Rejection of the Price Zone influenced the Long but ... check next chart

AIMS The Hunt Method created an Apple Signal at that spot without the need for you to learn to trade with S/R and S/D analysis. No price action analysis required. 

This chart shows what AIMS The Hunt Method looks like. We trade with m5/m1 chart side by side. A unique way of trading the M1/M5 charts. 

A 1:20 Risk Reward Cherry Signal on the M5 Chart. 

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
