Alf44:

There is a big enough difference between (H+L)/2 and (H+L+C)/3 to make a difference.

Taking the midpoint (MP) crossover usually beats the pivot point (PP) because the PP acts like a "magnet" for the reasons you stated.

I am NOT arguing with you. I am just explaining my findings.

If you have a charting service, draw the MP and the PP and you will then SEE what I mean.

Remember, my GRIDIRON Strategy is based on pivots so I am NOT saying pivots don't work. I just believe using the MP gives me a slight edge, that's all.

HTH.

...different strokes...for different folks !

And I'm not arguing with you either, Rumpled.

If it works for you then that's all that matters.

I'm just comfortable with the Daily Pivots etc... and that was really ALL I was suggesting.

GLTY, and keep up the good work here !

Thank you Avery for this "middle of the range" technique.

Could you please tell me if you have tested this technique on the "emini's" or do you have an opinion as to the applicability of this technique to the emini's?

Thanks, Joe

Joe:

I don't trade futures.

If you can plot the previous candle's middle on your chart, you can see the behaviour of the emini vs. the middle. Use the middle as a compass to tell you which way to trade.

I use the daily and 60 minute intervals.

HTH.

TRO, I tested the middle-of-the-range concept in Microsoft Excel on several stocks using EOD data and it averaged 63% forecasting accuracy.

I'll test it next on intraday numbers.

You know casinos would kill for a 63% edge.

Hint: Use 60 minute intervals for intraday.

MT0 is the middle trend indicating if the close is above the current middle.

MTx is the middle trend indicating if the close is above the middle x days ago.
