SS – You are a gentleman and a scholar. Very generous of you to share this with us. Thanks!

Hi SS,

Thanks for taking the time to put this together and for sharing – very generous.

“If the high of the second bar is lower than the high of the first five-minute bar, the first trend of the day is UP.”

Should that read if the high of the second bar is HIGHER ? I dunno….sorry if I’ve missed something.

With kind regards,
MK

Yes, you are absolutely correct.

Should be HIGHER. If the second bar’s high is higher than that of the first bar,the first trend of the day is UP.

Hello again,

Another edit maybe….

Slide 20 & 21: The description and example don’t match up, I think…..

With kind regards,
MK

I’ll look over those later. Thanks for your careful attention.

LC, If you can, please modify slide 20:

Where it says “Take the difference, and SUBTRACT it from the LOW of the first five-minute bar” it SHOULD say “take the difference, and SUBTRACT it from the HIGH of the first five-minute bar.

That’s great – many thanks. Now I just need to find another two years reading time!!

Roblovet,

OMG. Good job.

I had a journal there on fattail on Lenny Dykstra and his option “trading,” explaining his schemes and deceptions way back then. That was before he went to prison and was the subject of a very recent book.

• roblovet  June 30, 2013 at 16:24:53

SS,

What happened to the individual who used to run fattail? And why did he take it down?

I loved that site and I learned a tremendous amount about trading volatility from the journals. I still use a variant of the pitchfork strategy that he described in the various journals.
