ONE Contract (LONG) - @ES Trading Systems

There are FIVE One Contract LONG Trading Systems:  Coral One, Diamond One, Emerald One, Opal One, and Amethyst One.  Each System uses the same programmed code, but different Time Frames, as well as different input values for trading.  Coral One trades on a 5-minute bar;  Diamond One trades on a 13-minute bar;  Emerald One trades on a 26-minute bar;  Opal One trades on a 55-minute bar; and Amethyst One trades on a 137-minute bar.  Each system also uses a Daily-bar chart as Data 2.  All systems trade on the futures symbol @ES, which is the e-Mini contract for the S&P 500 index futures.  Each system:  (1) is made up of 25 different trade scenarios for LONG trades ONLY, based upon the Bollinger Band and the previous chart patterns; and (2) trades one contract per trade only (No scaling in additional contracts).

ALL Entries and Exits are executed at the END of a bar ONLY, as a Market Order, including Stops.  Entries and Exits may occur at any time day or night.

The Entry Signals include reference to: (a) the Bollinger Band; (b) the previous 2 to 7 Daily candlesticks; and (c) the length of the tails and/or body of those candlesticks.  

Once the system has entered a trade, there are 7 ways to exit that trade:  (A) three separate Proprietary Exits (referencing the MACD indicator), after a specified minimum profit amount has been reached first; (B) historical Profit Target amount; (C) Trailing Stop, after reaching a minimum profit amount; (D) End-of-Week Exit; or (E) taking a Stop Loss.   The “overall stop loss setting,” is currently set between $1,600 and $1,800, as shown on the Performance Chart. Some of the individual trades have their own unique stop loss setting, which are lower than this setting.  Suggested account size to trade each of these strategies is $10,000.

One Contract (SHORT) - @ES Trading Systems

There are FIVE One Contract SHORT Trading Systems:  Coral One, Diamond One, Emerald One, Opal One, and Amethyst One.  Each System uses the same programmed code, but different Time Frames, as well as different input values for trading.  Coral One trades on a 5-minute bar;  Diamond One trades on a 13-minute bar;  Emerald One trades on a 26-minute bar;  Opal One trades on a 55-minute bar; and Amethyst One trades on a 137-minute bar. 

These trading systems are exactly the same as the “One Contract (LONG) - @ES Trading Systems” except (1) they are made up of 25 different trade scenarios for SHORT trades ONLY, (2) Entry signals use the length of the wicks, instead of the tails, and (3) short trades have their own input values.  See details above.

Amethyst Five (LONG) - @ES Trading System

This is a 24-hour trading system that trades on the futures symbol @ES, which is the e-Mini contract for the S&P 500 index futures.  This system trades on a 144-minute bar chart, using a Daily-bar chart as Data 2.  It trades during both day and night markets.  Entries and Exits may occur at any time day or night, and all are executed with Market Orders.
  
Entry is based on a proprietary formula, which uses recent trading activity as well as the Bollinger Band indicator, as well as reference to past candlesticks’ tails, wicks, and/or body length, as part of that formula.  This strategy will execute only BUY LONG entry orders.  The system trades one contract initially, but will then scale-in additional contracts or add to its position (one contract at a time), as the market moves against it, and may scale in up to a total of 5 contracts per trade.  Spacing of the entries of these additional contracts varies with each of the 25 trade scenarios making up the system. Many trades reach profit without the need of scaling in additional contracts.

Once the system has entered a trade, there are 7 ways to exit that trade:  (A) three separate Proprietary Exits (referencing the MACD indicator), after a specified minimum profit amount has been reached first; (B) historical Profit Target amount; (C) Trailing Stop, after reaching a minimum profit amount; (D) End-of-Week Exit; or (E) taking a Stop Loss.   The “overall stop loss setting,” is currently set at $3,000.  Some of the individual trades have their own unique stop loss setting, which is lower than this setting.  Suggested account size to trade this strategy is $30,000.
