    I believe the Apple trade rgarvis referred to was on 10/12, not 10/15

    Thanks for you detailed response. It seems like that on this blog, constructive feedback often gets lost in a flood of negativity. I'm just interested in evaluating Kevin's system. Do you adjust your price target on a position as a trade progresses, or do you just stick with a preset target as Kevin discusses?

    Thanks for your response, it is helpful. Do you regularly use Kevin's system in your trading? If so, has it been consistently profitable for you? I'm also curious as to whether you use stops with this system, whether actual or mental stops

    I would only like to add that I have been paper trading the system for a couple of months with mixed results. Even though I realize that paper trading is not the same as the real thing, I wanted to get a feel for Kevin's system. What I have found that, at least for me, the system can produce some winners. But I have encountered losses where even though the system's indicators flagged a stock as oversold, the stock continued its downward direction. I posted a specific question to Kevin a couple of days ago about such a situation with an Apple trade and am waiting for an answer.

    Thanks for your response - it is very informative. I am also looking forward to Kevin's response as the creator of the strategy. I would like to get his take as to whether the Apple trade I mentioned at 11:10 est was within the parameters of the strategy and if not, why.

    Thanks for your response. I'm also looking forward to hearing Kevin's take on the Apple trade. His strategy seems to work most of the time that I have been paper-trading it. But sometimes I encounter trades where the price keeps going down (for a long trade) after what seems a good entry point according to the strategy's parameters.

    Thanks all,

    I have been paper trading your system to get a feel for it. At 11:10 am today, the indicators for Apple seemed to indicate a buy with call options. But in hindsight, that would trade would have lost money as Apple get falling throughout the day. I would appreciate your critique as to what you think of the trade at that time and whether or not you would have made it yourself.
    Thanks,

  • Using A Weekly Options Strategy On The IPath S&P Short-Term Futures - VXX [View article]
    Kevin -

    Very clear and interesting article. I wanted to ask you what might be a typical scenario where you would need to manage the trade. Are you referring to cutting losses if the trade is not in the green after a certain number of days before expiration?

    Thanks,
