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.!!! "
