AMBUSH TRADING METHOD™

AMBUSH TRADE SAMPLES AND PERFORMANCE

 

Week of December 1, 2014

Let’s do a little follow up on one of the major currencies this week, the Australian Dollar Future (G6A). Of course, the spot forex market AUD/USD looks almost the same, and would be especially interesting for traders with small accounts.

Last time we looked in October, it moved between around 0.8600 and 0.8800. and as you can see, not too much has changed. We had a huge move down in September and another short slide early November. Then we had more sideways movement, with the AUD now trying to break below 0.8550.

So what’s going to happen next? And more importantly, how do you trade that mess? Well my guess, and it’s worth as much as anyone else's, is that it’s going to continue to move between 0.8500 and 0.8800 for the next couple of weeks. The good news is, trading the Ambush method we don’t have to think about that. We’ll just keep on taking those trades, and from the results below, I hope you'd agree that we do so for a good reason.

Week of November 24, 2014

This week I’d like to look at the most traded currency future, the Euro FX Future, traded at the CME. Of course we could also look at the EUR/USD spot forex market, which might be interesting for traders with smaller accounts.

Looking at the chart below, you can see that the Euro significantly lost value against the USD, moving down from 1.33 all the way to about 1.24 where it’s trading right now.

Like most markets these days, the Euro tends to consolidate and trade in tight trading ranges most of the time (red boxes). Then, and usually this happens within a day or two, it moves down strongly (blue arrows) just to start moving sideways again for days, if not weeks.

Ambush did a great job trading in any of these market cycles, which is important as you don’t want to cherry-pick trades, right? Just have a look at the results below. In my opinion this is tough to beat, especially considering these are all day trades. Ambush got in and out always on the same say, not holding any positions overnight

Week of November 17, 2014

It’s been a while since we looked at the Natural Gas Future (NG3), and since there’s been a lot of action in that market lately, it’s time to have another look!

As you can see on the chart below, NG has been trading for months in a range between about 4.00 and 4.35. During October, prices finally broke out to the downside and moved down to about 3.75.

In November we’ve seen quite an explosion of volatility, and prices not only moving all the way back into the old trading range again, but moving above the range up to 4.65. But the fun didn’t stop here, NG moved back into the range, down to almost 4.00.

All of that happened within a couple of days, and it’s that sort of price action that drives almost every trader crazy. The market seems to have gone nuts, behaving totally unpredictable, not caring about your support/resistance lines, trend lines, chart patterns etc…

The good news is that Ambush handled the market action exceptionally well. It made money in the trading range, it made money during the move down and continued to do so when NG went nuts because it adjusts to volatility very quickly. But see for yourself..

Week of November 4, 2014

Let’s look at one of the most popular stock indices among private traders — the Russell 2000 mini Future (TF).  It’s a great market, especially for private day traders.  It moves as much as the mini-dow in regards to ticks, but one tick is $10. It also has good liquidity and low commissions. Having said that though, day trading is anything but easy, even if you just want 5 ticks, and requires mental skills that are hard to achieve for most traders.

On the chart below, you can see another way to day trade the Russell, using the Ambush method. Even though entries are taken from daily charts, each of those trades are actually a day trade, since you’re always out at the close and don’t hold positions over night. This gives you a huge advantage when it comes to margin requirements.

As you can see below, Ambush does pretty well trading the Russell — capturing many large moves. Even the best day traders will have a hard time scalping that many ticks out of the Russell.

AMBUSH METHOD TRADE AND PERFORMANCE REPORT

Week of October 27, 2014

Let’s look at one of the major currencies this week, the Australian Dollar Future (G6A). Of course, the spot forex market AUD/USD looks almost the same, and would be especially interesting for traders with small accounts.

As you can see on the chart below, the Australian Dollar Future moved down for about two weeks in September before it got stuck around 0,8700. Throughout October, it moved between 0.8650 and 0.8800, being unable to breakout in either direction. These are perfect conditions for Ambush, and it managed to pinpoint some of the nicest "false breakouts,” making plenty of profits.

Week of October 14, 2014

One of the questions I'm asked all the time regarding Ambush is "what happens if a market starts to trend?" Will Ambush fail? To answer this question, let’s look at a market that has been in one direction since August, the Euro. It moved all the way dowm from 1.35 to 1.25, which is a big move in the world of currencies, especially between the two major currencies of the world – the Euro and the US Dollar.

The following chart is the Euro FX Future (G6E) traded at the CME. Of course, the EUR/USD spot forex market looks almost the same. In early August it was trading in a tight range at around 1.34, then moved down to 1.32. It went sideways again for a few days and then just tanked all the way down to 1.29. This continued until today, where we’re trading around 1.26. Now, what will the next move be? Are we just in another consolidation before the next big move down? How can you know? And do you need to?

Those who’ve been trading Ambush 2.0 since August didn’t care about this. They just placed their orders each day and went away. At the end of this period of euro-devaluation caused by interest rate policies and other factors, what mattered is if you made money. Who cares if you’ve been right or not?!

Have a look at the results below. This is another example how much better Ambush 2.0 can deal with trending markets than the previous version. Remember, every trade you see was entered and exited on the same trading day, so no overnight-positions were required.

Week of October 6, 2014

One of the most popular markets among traders today is the E-Mini Nasdaq future traded at the CME, and lately there have been some interesting price moves and market patterns that I’d like to discuss.

As you can see on the chart below, in early September the NQ almost stopped moving for weeks, which resulted in a very tight consolidation range, followed by another range that was slightly bigger, but still unusually small. After this there were some wild swings where the Nasdaq tried to break out to the upside and later on to the downside (see blue arrows outside the boxes). Both of those attempts failed. Notice how Ambush profited strongly, especially on those two days. Ambush traders simply took advantage of the fact that many novice traders traded in the wrong direction at almost the worst price possible — taking the other side of those trades. It’s exactly those trades that often end up being the most profitable ones. They are also very hard to take unless you have a trading method that backs you up and takes your opinion out of the action.

Remember, every trade you see was entered and exited on the same trading day, so no overnight-positions were required.

Week of September 29, 2014

Last time we looked at some trending markets and how Ambush performs in those conditions. Let’s have a look at the recent price movement of Natural Gas (Future, NG3).

In this weeks’ chart, things are more clear. In a nutshell, it didn’t do much besides move in small consolidations with some 1-2 day rallies and selloffs — but all within a nicely defined range between 3.850 and 4.150. While most traders go crazy trying to catch a move that simply doesn’t happen, Ambush performs exceptionally well in such market conditions.

Remember, every trade you see was entered and exited on the same trading day, so no overnight positions were required.

Week of September 15, 2014

It's time to look at one of the moving currencies again. We’ve seen some big moves again in the U.S. Dollar in the last couple of weeks, and the New Zealand Dollar was no exception. Below you will find a chart of the New Zealand Dollar Future (G6N) contract, but doing these trades in the NZD/USD spot forex market would be an option for traders with a smaller account.

This is a good example of a few months of trading in very different market conditions. As you can see below, we have some trends here. but they’re interrupted by consolidations..  short ones and larger trading ranges. Overall Ambush did a really good job in all of those market conditions. Remember, every trade you see was entered and exited on the same trading day, so no overnight-positions were required.

AMBUSH METHOD TRADE AND PERFORMANCE REPORT

Week of September 2, 2014

I've received quite a few emails in August from traders interested in Ambush that have been wondering how it's dealing with the strongly trending stock markets. As you might remember, in August there was a strong correction in the stock indices that we've followed, but an even stronger rally.

The good news is that since Ambush 2.0, such market conditions are much less of an issue than before. Strong rallies are still not the best conditions for Ambush, but in August it performed very well – for example, in the E-Mini S&P 500 future (ES) as shown below.

AMBUSH METHOD TRADE AND PERFORMANCE REPORT

Week of August 18, 2014

This month I’d like to look at two currency markets — the Australian Dollar Future (AUD/USD) and the Canadian Dollar Future (CAD/USD). Of course, both markets could also be traded in the spot-forex markets, which is especially interesting for those of you trading with smaller accounts.

For futures traders, the good news is that to trade Ambush you just place your orders at the market open and walk away for 23-24 hours, while at the same time you can still take advantage of daytrading margins and never need to hold a position overnight. In other words, Ambush allows you to daytrade and take advantage of intraday market opportunities without being tied to the screen.

So let’s start with the Australian Dollar. What you see below is a daily chart of the G6A of the last couple of months. While we had a short “rally” during June, it quickly stalled in July. Since then, it’s been moving nowhere on a larger scale. It moved from one consolidation to the next and most breakouts didn’t last longer than a day, if at all. This is not an unusual picture, its trading reality. It won’t help to wish for a different market, instead as a trader you need to adapt and ask yourself “how can I trade this successfully?” That’s what I asked myself back in 2008 when I started to develop the Ambush Trading Method. I came up with a method that allowed me to trade in a vast variety of market conditions — even messy markets.

Next up is the Canadian Dollar Future (G6C). It's quite a different picture compared to the Australian Dollar Future. Here we have a market that kept on consolidating in a tight box for a few days, then broke out, consolidated again, and moved down some more. But is trading the actual breakouts the most profitable way to trade in this case? And what do you do while it consolidates? And will you be ready to catch that breakout when it happens? If you’re a good breakout trader, hopefully you will. Actually, I like to trade breakouts myself, but what’s even better is to combine different trading methods and take advantage of both. This will decrease your overall risk because you’re diversifying, and in this case, you’d make money on both — the breakouts and the consolidations.

AMBUSH METHOD TRADE AND PERFORMANCE REPORT

Week of July 28, 2014

It’s time to look at the E-Mini S&P 500 future again, which is probably the most popular market out there. For months, the ES was trading sideways at around 1825-1875 before it finally broke out in June. After a strong rally to about 1950, the trend stopped and ES started to do its thing again. Since then, it has been moving between 1950 and 1975. This is a good example of how Ambush 2.0 deals with trending markets. Sure, there’s a drawdown, but it’s quite small compared to the profits Ambush manages to gain when the market returns to normal. And in my opinion, if you want to succeed as a trader without having to endure massive drawdowns all the time, you need to find a way to trade a market the way it is most of the time. Let Ambush help you do so.

AMBUSH METHOD TRADE AND PERFORMANCE REPORT

Week of July 21, 2014

This week let's look at the Australian Dollar Future (G6A). You also could have traded the AUD/USD spot forex market instead. It’s a perfect example of what markets look like most of the time these days. Maybe you've already noticed that in many popular technical analysis books, you always see charts of nicely trending markets. Then, when you turn on your charting software, you see something similar to the Australian Dollar below.  You need to know how to deal with this since this is the real world. Either you know how to make money in today's markets, or you had better stop trading! In the chart below, you can see many small consolidations with short explosive moves. It's very unpredictable, unless you know how to deal with it, or even better, you have a trading method that does the job!
