Reverse engineered my trading strategy over the past couple of hours. I'm now looking at things the opposite way. Instead of trying to force setups onto patterns, I'm now going to look for patterns to provide setups. For example: Instead of looking for Biggest % Gainers to provide Panics (big or small) or Multi-Dip Recurls, I will look for PATTERNS that are forming on Biggest % Gainers ALREADY to provide potential Panics or Recurls... (how do I explain this better) Instead of saying, "it's a biggest percent gainer, which pattern can I apply to this?" I should be asking, "where is this biggest percent gainer current at in the typical run-cycle (PM/BO, FGD, 2GD, 3GD) and what pattern historically applies for it's current state?" NOT simply "It's up a lot, what do I think it's gonna do?" It's the same thing how Tim talks about reckless shorts jumping on anything that's up a lot. I didn't simply jump into anything up a lot before and always followed my rules (and it's been serving me well), but looking at the market THIS way will make me even more of a sniper. So now, based on where a stock is in the overall run-cycle, I will focus on applying one or more setups to it that have historically played out on that particular day --- Not what SHOULD it do or what would I LIKE it to do; what HAS this day or time period in the run cycle DONE historically, based on where it's at now??? Because I've confirmed that specific setups seem to either ONLY work or work BEST on particular days/times in a run cycle (PM/BO, FGD, 2GD, 3GD).
