Wow what a day with MEE. Biggest trading day for me ever. That Buy Zone made me dizzy.....since using MTC stocks and the Buy Zone it's been a pleasure to trade.

.when using the buy zone the actual open doesn't always match the opening candle. Use the actual open correct?

=============================================


It depends on your platform/charting package.

TradeStation uses a consolidated data stream which means premarket orders can MESS UP the open of the first candle. THAT COST ME THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS YEARS AGO!

Now they have the DAILYOPEN FIELD for your chart indicators to use, thanks to you know who.

So to answer your question, you need to use the actual open price to calculate the long and short triggers.

Thanks for the clarification.

DID YOU HEAR ANYTHING FROM AMERITRADE FOR MILKING THE COWS? *

Chetron ......Actually I found a method using Stategy Desk. Trendlines with Trade Manager make excellent alerts and activations in one move or use a conditional order and add in a stop. Ameritrade was utterly rude not responding :-) Those Cows don't stand a chance.

Is it a fact that you can milk more from the cow after the initial gap move? If so that's what I do.

I said *I set buy stop limit orders well before the buy zone* the limits I set are for the opening price plus or minus .10 for long or short. Meaning I load up the trades before the buy zone. It's not the total package of MTC but utter than that it works throughout the day.

If you are not trading the first half hour, YOU ARE NOT MILKING THE COWS, do NOT kid yourself. *


You don't earn my $$ nor do you invest it. I trade my way and am doing fine using the Buy Zone method and MTC stocks. If it doesn't own up to your standards tough. There's more than one way to milk a cow. If you can handle the early trading that's just swell. Bravo.

Nothing. Probably a dumb question so I'm working on my own types of quick buys and sells. I trade MTC now but don't do the 1st half hour. Too fast for me. During that time I set up my entry and stop losses and line my chart with the open etc. Trade a minimum of 2 MTC stocks and do well. I set buy stop limit orders well before the buy zone. I don't have a feel for how a stock will move and I don't really believe anyone can develop one. The Travel Guide can be of use though. So I use TRO's advice and take .05 bid first, then .10 next etc. and sell if it drops back.
