Inverse Pairs

I am really looking forward to getting into this. It seems that everything that I do is wrong, just kidding. I do enough wrong to make myself think that way. Seems that if I traded the inverse of what I think I would be a real trader.

With the above being said, I would like to learn this mentality. I had the idea of inverse pairs about five years ago a could not get anywhere with it. I traded other ways and lost enough that I dropped out of trading.

I would like to ask this. As I dig deeper into this train of thought and I get ready to place a few trades----would it be OK if I posted my thought process in this thread. I will do this ahead of time maybe a day and get input on the trades----guidance if you want to call it that. Maybe you guys could tell me if I am going about this in the wrong thought pattern before I place the trade.

This thread has been so helpful. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Another question, Do you trade with EAs.

Thanks Dale

Been looking for the right correlation indicator. Does anyone have a good one in mind?

I use EA's but I prefer using a JAVA API. Lot quicker.

If you have questions ask, if I can answer it I will, don't mind helping out a bit.

OK, things going pretty good here for a start. Could you point me in the direction of the JAVA API. and the EAs is that something that you developed, bought or are there free ones floating around.

Things that I forgot to ask.

Money management I am looking at .02 per trade which will be less with the proper stops. Any suggestions

Pitfalls on this type of trading----what to look out for?

What timeframe do you consider the best?

   Could anyone tell me if there are inverse pairs. Say one pair goes up the other goes down. Is there a list somewhere on the correlation of pairs? How one pair reacts to other pairs.

Thanks


For how long have you been investing using this approach? I am interested.

Stops are not a part of this technique, therefore lot size should not be more than .1:1

I posted a video called The Midas Formula. Maybe check that out for ideas and think on the part about dynamic hedging.

Also, best to choose pair combinations with net positive carry.

EA's I did my own, not for sale or available. Never really looked at other peoples EA's.

This approach is not about time frames. They don't feature. Eur is what it is on 5 min, 3 hour or daily, the current price is the current price on ALL time frames. I wouldn't use any indicator you can just load of the net as well. The math is readily available. Study it, use it. You have no idea what's in that indicator, so it might scupper you before you even start.

This approach is very much not about indicators anyway. It's about current price and relationships.

MM of 0.2 - I have no idea what that means.

What's the current relationship, what is the historical relationship? In terms of that relationship how much do you own and should you own right now?

It's a completely different way of thinking about fx. Think like an investor, not a trader.

The trade is not the end here. It's the tool you use to adjust your position.
