Grid trading can be used effectively to trade forex and indices, traders must be skilled and knowledgeable, about their instruments and the grid strategy they employ.I trade grids based on the following professional trading thinking.

Not everything on forums and private forums makes money.Just beware.There are some people who know how to make money, but there are 99.9%  high priests of noise on internet sites and forums.These 99.9% of people are time wasters for the real traders, so beware.Ignore the quacks on forums, they just send you wrong internet sites to learn.

 

Apply grid strategy to forex based on interest rates expectations , so at present the grid strategy would be long usd short euro.Buy the dip grid is another grid strategy.

I always thought you were a grid trader... 

 

Won't work.  Grid trading is seductive but just doesn't work.  You need exposure to profit.

 

I'm getting the hurry-ups from the forum algo - save or discard.  Something new?  Algo's bossing us around - I think that will create a new form of "rage" (eg road rage) - getting off topic.  

Well, I have seen this topic create "grid-rage" - a lot of people don't like gridding...A lot love it too.

Grid trading makes money, it is ideally suited for forex and indices investing.If you you had taken a professional view on grid trading, you had operated a short bearish grid, you would have made money.This is how professionals trade forex, if you had applied professional approach to grid trading and based it on fundamentals, i.e interest rate drivers, you would make money.

If you had listened to the right people and used a bearish grid , you would make money  in this down trend.The information was available 12 months ago.

 

Unfortunately ,you have misinformation quacks on every forum, teaching the wrong way to trade.They are the high priests of noise on forums, they have useless opinions on every instrument  and how to trade it ,using bs technical analysis.The forums are essentially the blind leading the blind, so nobody ends up ahead, because charlatans are voicing their opinions and leading the blind.

Hi

 

I would disagree with a few things you've said.  Firstly, in what applies to me personally - I don't follow "quacks" and don't give much credence to TA at all.  So I agree with what you say (just not in that it applies to me).  

 

The simple thing you've said which stands out to me is that "you would have made money in this down-trend" (using grid trading).  I would have just shorted it - no grid - and made money.  No "hedge" to unwind, no reduced profits, and in the current rate environments, there is no advantage with trying to capture some interest.  

 

Grid trading, the way I understand it, is seductive like I said, but you need exposure - (net exposure) - to profit.  If you had a grid you're always going to have to unwind it meaning one leg ultimately will be a directional trade.  So while it can work, it is prolonging the inevitable: a single-exposure directional trade.  

 

That spreadsheet of a grid only has two open positions too, with an exposure of basically nothing and huge 300 pip TP/SL?  Massive - trending more than gridding??

 

You might have some variations on the standard grid concepts.  If they work, good on you.  But for me, it's something that just seems "wrong".

Here is a bullish grid on us30 .It is a form of long biased investing approach, it lets you enter at several oversold  levels.I use several bullish and bearish grid strategies.

The problem is timing the market with your approach.I was shorting Euro usd several months ago, everytime I shorted , it went higher.With a grid I know my risk, from the start, I use down trend and uptrend grids, most amateurs use random grids, without fundamental drivers.

 

I know exactly my risk with this type of grid trading.Mine is more based on trend/fundamentals drivers grid.The calculations are a risk  of about 500 pips  average on a thousand pip grid.The grid is trading long and shorts,and reinstating closed trades,  with a final downtrend mode.You have to take risk to make money, this grid takes risks based on probabilities  and directional bias.

 

It is all mechanical without emotions.

The good thing about automated grid trading is, one can trade 8 different instruments, with preset risk parameters.Everything is done automatically.This type of trading has worked well in the past.One could trade gbp/usd/eur usd/dax,asx200,ftse.dow, eur jpy and usdjpy., 8 instruments  at the same time.

 

Here new ftse   /asx grids

    • Tony Sycamore analyses three ASX-listed Healthcare stocks and explores if they build on recent gains.   Source: Bloomberg   Indices Shares CSL Limited Health care COVID-19 ASX  Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia | Publication date: Monday 06 February 2023  The ASX 200 added 47 points (0.67%) on Friday to close at 7558, as the ASX 200 locked in a fifth straight week (0.86%) of gains. At a sector level, gains were led by the Healthcare (+4.81%), Real Estate (+4.35%), and IT (+4.30%) sectors. At the same time, the Energy sector fell -2.14% to be back to flat on the year. Driving the Healthcare sector's outperformance, heavyweight CSL surged 6.5% to its highest weekly close in fourteen months ($314.27). Many surgeries and treatments that were delayed during Covid have resulted in long waiting lists and a solid stream of future demand for many Healthcare companies. In this week's Three Stocks to Watch, we review the recent news and charts of three ASX-listed Healthcare stocks and if they can build on recent gains. CSL (CSL) Covid is now mainly in the rear vision mirror, and aided by its acquisition of Vifor Pharma, a Swiss biotech that specialises in renal disease and iron deficiency, CSL has a bigger footprint within the industry and a more diversified earnings stream than ever before. This has resulted in broker upgrades ahead of CSL's 1H2023 earnings report on Tuesday, February 14th. As viewed on the chart below, the share price of CSL had, until late last week, spent the past three years trading in a range between $340 and $240 as Covid increased costs and reduced the number of plasma collections - an essential raw material used in many of CSL's therapies. After last week's storming run higher, CSL is eying a good layer of resistance at $320, coming from November 2021 and November 2020 highs. Should a break of this resistance occur, it would then set up a test of the February 2020 all-time high of $342.75. On the downside, should CSL fall back into the trend channel and below a layer of horizontal support $305/300, it would warn the break higher has failed and of another round of sideways price action. CSL daily chart   Source: TradingView Cochlear (COH) Cochlear, the bionic ear-making company, was another healthcare company whose product offerings were impacted during the pandemic and whose share price was range bound until late last week. Ahead of its 1H2023 earnings report on Wednesday, February 15th, the share price of Cochlear has broken above downtrend resistance to be eyeing a good band of resistance between $226 and $236 (from highs in April and August of last year). Should the share price see a sustained break above $236, it would open up a test of the $257.76 all-time high. On the downside, should the share price of COH fall back into the trend channel and below a layer of horizontal support $215/210 area, it would warn the break higher has failed and of more sideways price action in the foreseeable future. Cochlear daily chart   Source: TradingView Sonic Healthcare (SHL) Unlike the two healthcare companies above, Sonic Healthcare's earnings were boosted by the arrival of Covid, as it moved to provide tests and immunisations on top of its regular healthcare services. With Covid now mainly in the past, Covid revenues are significantly lower, and base fees have been reduced. Despite continued strong underlying demand for Sonic diagnostic health care, the share price of SHL is 32% below its $46.95 high. It appears comfortable trading in the low $30s and needing a new catalyst to reclaim ground lost over the past 12 months.

    • The Walt Disney Co. share price looks to have reversed its downtrend ahead of its Q1 results release Source Bloomberg   Shares The Walt Disney Company Bob Iger Bob Chapek ESPN+ Hulu  Shaun Murison | Senior Market Analyst, Johannesburg | Publication date: Friday 03 February 2023  When is Disney’s Q1 earnings date? The Walt Disney Co., listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), is the largest media and broadcasting company in the world. The company is set to report its fiscal first quarter earnings for 2023 (Q1 2023) on Wednesday the 8th of February after US markets close. The Walt Disney Co. Q1 2023 earnings: What ‘the street’ expects from results? The upcoming results will mark the first quarter with Bob Iger back at the helm. Bob Iger had previously served as CEO of the group from 2005 to 2020. His return in the last fiscal quarter follows the immediate dismissal of his successor Bob Chapek and was upon the request of the Disney board. Box office sales are expected to support revenue growth for the group with the latest Avatar movie having grossed over $2bn. Subscription numbers for Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ will again be in focus, determining the success of new packaged bundle offerings which amalgamate these services. The groups parks and recreation services had a phenomenal return to growth in 2022 (post lockdowns), and markets will be looking to see whether this momentum has been continued with higher ticket prices to support. Markets will also look to see the health of linear network television for the group, and hear further about restructuring initiatives pertaining. How to trade the Walt Disney Co. results? Refinitiv data on the Walt Disney Co. arrives at the following consensus estimates for the Q1 2023 results: Revenue of $23.359 for the quarter (+7% year on year) Earnings per share $0.79 (-25% year on year) Source Refinitiv A Refinitiv poll of 30 analysts maintain a long-term average rating of buy for the Walt Disney Co. (as of the 3rd of February 2023, with 7 of these analysts recommending a strong buy, 17 recommending a buy, 6 hold and 0 sell or strong sell recommendations on the stock. Source IG From a retail trader perspective (as of 3rd of February 2023), 97% of IG clients with open positions on the Walt Disney Co. expect the price to rise over the near term, while 3% of IG Clients with open positions expect the price to fall. Disney earnings: technical analysis   Source IG The share price of Disney has recently broken above the 200-day simple moving average (200MA) (blue line). This suggests that the longer-term trend is no longer down. The 20MA (red line) has also recently crossed above the 50MA (green line) suggesting that the short to medium term trend is now up. The stochastic does however provide a conflicting signal as it trades in overbought territory. Our preference is to look for long entry on the stock into a pullback from overbought territory, with a longer-term upside resistance target of 126.35. However, should a pullback instead take the share price below resistance and the 200MA at around 101.30, our upward trend bias assumptions would need to be reassessed. In summary Q1 2023 results are expected to be released on the 8th of February after US markets close While revenue is likely to have increased against the prior year’s comparative period, earnings are expected to have declined Consensus broker rating suggest the Walt Disney Co. to be a long term buy Most IG clients with open positions expect the share price to rise in the near term The price trend for Disney appears up although overbought at current levels
    • Early Morning Call: FTSE 100 opens lower, after setting new all-time high In Europe, indices opened lower, consolidating after a positive weekly performance.  Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Monday 06 February 2023  Equity market overview Equity markets were mixed this morning in the APAC region. The Nikkei outperformed as the yen lost ground against all major currencies. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng was the worst performer in the region, dragged down by tech stocks. On Friday, US indices ended the session lower following a strong non-farm payrolls (NFP) report that sent the US dollar higher. More than half a million jobs were created in January, when the market expected 185,000. The December number was also revised upwardly to 260,000, from a previous estimate of 223,000. And the unemployment rate fell to 3.4% from 3.5% the previous month. Economists anticipated a rise to 3.6%. In Europe, indices open lower, consolidating after a positive weekly performance. On Friday afternoon, the FTSE 100 set a fresh all-time high, and France’s CAC 40 traded above 7,200 points, for the first time since January 2022.

Uber Technologies, also set tot report on Wednesday, recorded a net loss of $1.2 billion in the third quareter (Q3) of 2022, $512 million of which was attributed to revaluations of Uber's equity investments.

As for the fourth quarter, the market expects a loss per share of 18 cents, and revenue of $8.47bn. The market will also be closely looking for the number of monthly active users, the number of trips, and the number of customers who have subscribed to Uber One.
