Charting the E-mini S&P Using Advanced Techniques

BY: Tim Morge

We focus on two very important things at Market Geometry: Our first priority is to help people become consistently profitable traders; our second priority is to teach traders to think about and manage trades like a seasoned professional trader.

I pay strict attention to Market Structure, down to the detail of how each bar unfolds -the range of the bar, the relative length of the bar and where the bar opens and closes; if it sounds like work, it is! Trading can be quite tedious and I would never turn my own capital over to a curve fit indicator or model-I'll trust simple lines and solid money management over them every time.
