BOOMER Trading Method - that WORKS!

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

This one is for Technical Chart based traders - Especially those of you that might be struggling - Trading is not easy, hopefully this method will help you to improve profitability.

This isn't my method, he method below has been around for decades - I've refined the method to suit me - I'd encourage you all to do the same, if not and you trade it "naked" then it's win rate and profitability suffer to the down side - The content shown below is the "Naked" method

I was first alerted to this method at the 2010 Traders Expo in Las Vegas by a well known day trader

This set-up is called a BOOMER - It is  2 CONSECUTIVE INSIDE BARS

They happen very often -  in ALL markets and ALL time-frames

I don't usually give stats and probability away as I've had to test, develop and refine methods all by myself but the average profit of a Boomer is 2R (2 times the RANGE of the Trigger bar) - it won't always return 2R you'll need plans in place to deal with those times

As you can see in the circled area, there's 3 price bars - The TRIGGER bar is the 3rd bar and 2nd Inside Bar in the sequence - My method that I use tells me the most likely direction of the trade (This bit has not been shown or disclosed), but you could of deciphered that for yourself as Bar in the series is a cross bar, so is the next bar and so is the 3rd and trigger bar in the sequence = price indecision at that level and odds on for a decline of some sort

The ENTRY is 1 pip + the spread below the low Trigger Bar

The STOP is 1 pip + the spread above the high of the trigger bar

The TARGET price is 2 times the amount risked

Now look back 12/14 bars and see if you can see another BOOMER set-up!  The reward on this one was more than just 2R because of the narrow range of the trigger bar

I would only trade this method during normal market hours not out of hours where volume and volatility are reduced

I'll let you set and decide on Risk and Trade Management as that's your business


OK - How many of you missed the other BOOMER set-up right at the lows in the chart above?  Spend a week specifically looking for these set-ups and they'll start to pop out to you easily!

Right this one worked BUT it didn't return 2R (2 times amount risked of the range of the trigger bar) - WHY DIDN'T IT WORK????

BECAUSE - that's ALL the market gave us - sometimes you get 1R out them, sometimes a loss of 1R and other times 2R+ depending on how you manage the trade


Disclaimer:  Not advice nor recommendation - As a trader you are 100% responsible for your trading methods, decisions, risk and risk management techniques - If you are not 100% confident or competent in any of those areas, it would be highly prudent for you to become an expert in because that will determine your success or failure in this game.

The Information above is just that information for you to build upon I have deliberately left out key information that I use to trade with so that you don't blindly copy - you are highly encouraged to define your own rules, methods and trading practices

No liability for anyone's losses can be held against this post - don't risk money trading/betting

Hope it helps and good luck - managed correctly this can be highly profitable

This is a continuation of the Boomer - THT Wedger (sort of, but it was within my allowable criteria)

Anyone tells you, you can't use indicators to trade with ignore them, right settings, right indicator and you can beat the market

Source: Bloomberg  Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 01 December 2023 12:32 FTSE 100 ends month in positive territory The FTSE 100 slid to 7,383 on Thursday before reversing to the upside as inflation continues to weaken in the eurozone. The 55-day simple moving average (SMA) at 7,494 capped and is doing so once more on Friday morning. Once overcome, the 17 November high at 7,516 will be in focus, together with the 7,535 November high. Minor support is found at the 21 November low at 7,446. Source: ProRealTime DAX 40 continues to surge ahead as eurozone inflations weakens The DAX 40 continues to surge ahead as eurozone inflation came in weaker-than-expected on Thursday with the July peak at 16,532 being in sight. Minor resistance on the way up can be spotted at the 16,421 31 July low. Support below Friday’s intraday low at 16,236 is seen at Thursday’s 16,165 low. More significant support can be found between the August and September highs at 16,044 to 15,992. Source: ProRealTime S&P 500 sees best November since 1980 The sharp November rally in the S&P 500 has lost upside momentum but the index nonetheless continues to trade in four-month highs as the Fed’s preferred PCE inflation gauge came in as expected at 3% year-on-year in October. November was not only the best performing month for the S&P 500 this year but also the strongest November since 1980. Resistance is found at the November peak at 4,587, followed by the July peak at 4,607. While this week’s lows at 4,539 to 4,537 underpin, the short-term uptrend remains intact. Slightly further down sits potential support at the 4,516 mid-September high. Source: ProRealTime
    • If you want to succeed in this game you have to know and understand the rules - 99.9% of people don't, but of those a few % slip into the trading success net It's not my Intention to show you how to trade or make money - I'd be loathed to help some greedy wealthy person increase their wealth, through a easy trading method, but I'm happy to show you the TIME side of the markets, because I know hardly anyone will take note or use and it satisfies my "I tried to help them" lifes reflections etc Above I showed you Gann Square of 9 showing MONTHS on the SP500 and that lots of those turns on a monthly basis came out on KEY points on the Sq9 - namely the UP, DOWN, HORIZONTAL and DIAGONAL lines/points If you quickly study the chart below, you will see lots of times the EURUSD hit some of those points nicely, look at month 218 & 257 as examples - now scroll up and look where those 2 numbers are located on the Sq9 They are smack bang on key positions of that Sq9 chart - All I want to show you is how freely traded markets are somehow landing on pre-built number sequences over and over - not every one is a direct hit, but I'm sure you'd agree in the SP500 example above AND this EURUSD below its a canny coincidence! So, lets look at the EURUSD, because the Sq9 above resulted in too many options and you'd struggle to formulate a easy to use strategy from Gann used lots of differing Squares to calculate from, he used a Square of 12 (12x12 = 144) and we'll look at that for the EURUSD MONTHLY chart (Note ALL Gann's Squares where derived from the the pyramid's!)   We'll keep it simple and just use STATIC monthly cycles, here's a 12 month cycle (remember we are using Ganns Square 12 to base this all from) As you can see its quite effective, I've highlighted the 36 month cycle with THICK lines, because its resonating with the market pretty **** well and as you can see the Square of 144 is working really well with the EURUSD (All markets will work well with differing Squares, so its not a one size fits all thing) To save a huge amount of explaining, the square of 144 has principles within it that resonate with the sacred geometric solid of a PENTAGON and we know from mathematics, that a pentagram fits into a pentagon in the form of all its sides UNFOLDED, when these open arms/points hit the edge of a circle it creates a set point on that circle and you have 5 points of 72 degrees around that circle (Remember Pythagoras, he had a secret hidden order where the Pentagram was the symbol of the order! and he was a very very very clever person)  So IF, 72 (half of the Square of 12) is important then, harmonically related numbers to that 72 will also be Important, as in the chart above we've seen that 36 was In the chart below I've tided up the chart a little and added a 54 month cycle because 54 is an Internal angle of the pentagram, its also a Hurst cycle too - I also for visuals show basic Fibonacci cycles of 38/62/138/162 MONTHS  But as we can see 54 & 36 months  are definitely causing the EURUSD to sing to its tune - Remember these are STATIC cycles, the markets are NOT static, hence why its not perfect and exact Hopefully given you some food for thought - Remember you are VIEWING Time & Price action on a 2 Dimensional chart, Price & Time don't move in a 2 Dimensional fashion, Have a Great Christmas and New Year THT
