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

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™
