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:

    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!

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

    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.

    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
