"SYSTEMATIC TRADING - A Reasonable Approach For Successful Trading" ISBN 1-886977-04-6.
Systematic Trading is designed to provide the trader with the very best signals for current market conditions. Whereas a system trader will live and die with a mechanical system that ultimately will fail, Systematic Trading encourages the trader to take the next step necessary to become a successful trader. Most traders and most trading systems share a common trait. They are not successful.
This is a systematic approach to trading. The trade r is not locked into a mechanical system that ultimately will fail causing financial and emotional harm. Instead, the trader learns to respond to the market and not to the "crowd" that is wrong most of the time. The trader learns to do the homework necessary to achieve efficiency in the market place. The trader learns self reliance and not dependency upon others for their trading success.
THE SUCCESSFUL TRADER LEARNS TO DO WHAT THE MARKET IS DOING WHEN IT IS DOING IT!
THE TRADING SIGNALS
The Inside Day Reversal Signal - will alert the trader to potential short term trend reversals. As many as five entry points may be available when this signal is activated.
The LMI Bond Day Trading Signal - is a consistent performer and will alert the trader to divergence of price and momentum.
The Third Bar Trend And Entry Signal - is a new technical trend indicator and entry signal. It will provide opportunities for entering the market in the direction of the trend on a pullback with the use of a tight protecti ve stop.
Leading Momentum Indicator - will detect the conclusion of a correction or a rally as well as trend reversals.
Relative Value Summary - is used as a confirmation of trend.
The Zip Signal - requires a minimum of record keeping and no calculations. It favors the aggressive trader as the signals require the market to change direction in order to "trigger" the entry level. It continues to produce positive trading results from its signals.
Stowells Resistance And Support Zones - are very effective in identifying low risk entry areas.
Stowells Volume/Open Interest Ratio - combines volume and open interest to produce entry signals for trading futures contracts.
Stowells ATR (Average True Range) Signal - identifies low risk entry points.
