@Imprimus + @NextgenDad + @3maximilian + @Virgotopia + @Flipa ..
Do you prefer them to H4 and D1 charts?
Give me your opinion please so I can adjust accordingly...
I do not consider the cloud when I construct the buy sell zones as long as KS maintains the required direction. Undoubtedly, the kumo represents very strong S&R in certain situations but price breaches are common especially at the beginning of trends.
As for the basis of the charts, they are based on the PanOptic Method.
1. Rule8 (Dynamic and static values): I understand that we use the dynamic entries on strong markets and static entries on weak markets.So in cases where the difference between the two (KS value for static and dynamic) is very small lets say 10 pips, will this rule still be applied the same way?
1a). For an entry to be defined as static or dynamic,does it need to touch the KS line and can we apply the static and dynamic values to the TS and SSB?
2.When KS get flat on the current TF it alerts us of a possible retracement on that TF,so part of Rule 5 guide 2 says " I know that when the KS goes flat,then we are in a retracement of one TF or another". Its a bit confusing because i understand that the KS reflects the market dynamics of the current TF. Correct me if I'm wrong sir.
3. Rule 5, guide 4 says "I can also expect the direction of the breakout depending on the last direction of the KS". Does this mean that you expect it go with the previous KS value or opposite to it?
4.Rule 15 (Strength based on CS gauge): I understand that you have explained the concept on how you can check for strength using CS. However I am a bit confused on drawing the horizontal line. Do we pick the pivots only or can we start counting from any point on the CS line?
1a. To build an entry strategy with the KS Method, you have to define it using KS exclusively.
2. When KS goes flat, it is possible that there is a retrace on the lower TF. In that case you will notice that price will continue the original direction before it reaches KS. The sign that the correction is on the current TF is to see a pivot made around KS before price continues on its way. So KS actually shows all corrections not only the current TF corrections.
3. What I mean with this is the original direction before going flat (so it is the original trend direction). Off course this is only a bias. The trade will be built on accepting a breakout both ways
4. You always count from the current position of CS.
If any of the answers is not clear please tell me and I'll try to clarify further
1) Market entry - you talk of entering at the static or dynamic KS levels, but on other occasions mention waiting for a close between the TS and KS. I presume ideally we wait for a close at the KS level but in a strongly trending market a close above this and below the TS can still be a good entry with the right signal. (This fits with what I've read about entries in the 'trading action zone' between the 10 and 30 MA in one approach to swing trading.)
2) Market entry - Level 2 Signal - to confirm in an uptrending market this signal would involve a close below the TS not above it?
3) Trade selection - for those more focused on trading stocks do you have any thoughts on screening to identify good candidates for trading (i.e. the start of strong trends etc). Would you recommend using moving average crossovers or something similar? Or would you recommend taking more time to properly assess a smaller number of options to find the trading opportunities some of them will envitably present.
4) PTM results - from what I've read and seen is it fair to say that around a quarter or so of PTM trading set-ups don't tend to get activated, but that of those that do the vast majority are successful? I appreciate that once a beginner gets to a good level of understanding it should be possible to quickly adjust a trade even if it doesn't happen as originally envisaged. Just trying to get a feel for the what to expect with putting PTM into real life situations.
First of all, you have to understand the difference between the KS Method and The PanOptic Method.
I designed the KS method as a means for traders who are not interested in learning a lot about the market and/or who do not have the time to trade. I tried to integrate into it as much of what needs to be done to be successful as possible without complexity. For example, follow the KS. Such a simple concept that is so easy to follow but so powerful and safe. It really is amazing. Also many other aspects were integrated into the KS Method to achieve my goal as stated above. So the trader does not have to know anything or follow anyone. Just apply the simple method and you will be successful. That is the KS Method.
The PanOptic Method is a much more complex system that addresses everything in the market that requires a trader's attention from market structure to trade performance management.
Once you understand that .. now I will answer your question in that context
1. The entry in the KS Method is at static or dynamic KS levels. nice and simple. In the PanOptic, it is different. there are zones related to trader psychology, there are signals related to market performance etc...
2. If you are in an up-trending market, you need to only buy. That means the signal must be ABOVE TS
3. Trade selection depends on the strategies you like to trade. So for some people they like to trade after a deep retrace, some like to trade after a range breakout, others after a pattern breakout, etc... So depending on your favorite strategy, you pick our trades. For me, I like to trade a single pair (although I trade more than that). So when I built the PanOptic, I made sure that you can use it in every market state that you can think of. That way I can trade one pair and not be idle.
4. The success rate of the PanOptic Method is phenomenal due to many reasons:
1. The win rate is unbelievable
2. The trade entry rate is unthinkable
3. The percentage of the move you can gain is not comparable to anything I know
4. The RR is fascinating
5. I can go on and on....
Please don't think that I am trying to brag .. I am just telling you things as I see them.
Now please note that I have not yet disclosed the PanOptic. That is why I try to only publish trades within the limits of what I have taught. There are ways for entries and exits that I have not mentioned. They were designed so as to make sure that you do not miss any market move. So sometimes we miss trades that I publish not because the system can not get us into them but because the decision making to enter them is too complex and very dynamic and Both issues don't agree with publishing
I hope I answered you to your satisfaction
1. market is already to falled now its time to pullback
2. market is in down trade so i i have to go short ..
main questions is after news when market will stable .. to recognize signals properly
