Video tutorial: Advanced tramline trading

Welcome to my second video tutorial on tramline trading. If you haven’t yet watched my introductory video – The essentials of tramline trading – I recommend you start there and watch this afterwards.

The main feature of tramline trading is that it gives you excellent points to enter a trade and excellent targets to exit a trade at a profit.

My introductory video focused on obtaining low risk entry points. Today, I will concentrate on identifying profitable exit points.

In this video I will explain:

• How you can establish targets to exit a profitable trade

• How you can use tramlines to adapt to significant changes in market direction

• How to use upward and downward tramlines to give you very useful information to use in your trades

• If you’re a new reader, or need a reminder about some of the methods I refer to in my trades, then do have a look at the rest of my introductory videos:

    I’d echo Adrian’s thanks John – and also congratulate you Adrian on turning this into a usable tool with great results. Very Inspiring.

  • Paul.J

    Another useful video John, thank you so much.
    It’s interesting how the markets moves in waves.

  • Joe

    Great stuff John keep it comeing .. Momentom video next?

  • Rob

    as always, a beautifully clear explanation with a few ‘added value’ tips thrown in for good measure – well done again!

  • KenN

    Excellent video which goes deeper into this method. I particularly like the way you show how the tramlines develop going forward. Terrific and thank you again!

  • JOn

    excellent video, but it seems the cursor movements are 2-3 seconds behind your commentary. Any chance of sorting this out?

  • Geoff

    Excellent video John.
    Many thanks for the long position on Gold in your recent mail. Interestingly the lower tramline must have been almost a perfect overlay for the 144 day MA that Dominic Frisby identified as a historical touching point of resistance during last year.

  • Karol Grzyb

    Thank you John.Very useful and practical lessons.
    Best regards

  • Brad

    John, many many thanks – I am new to this and your patient ‘assume nothing’ style is perfect, along with a clear delivery!

    All in all – 10/10

    Hi John,
    Just to say, as always, excellent educational video and always look forward to your emails. I used use Trend Lines but your Tram lines has taken it to another dimension! Keep up the good work and thank you.

    Ever considered offering a Trading advisory service?! I can see it being very successful!

    Hi John
    I am always interested to read your articles. I think, however, constantly following the market as you do would leave me with a nervous tick. Do you have clients for which you trade for a commission? If so I’d be grateful to hear from you or somebody you recommend.
    Regards
    Richard
