This month on #TechnicalTuesdays I sat down with my friend Jeff Davis. Quick background on Jeff, he has been a full-time trader since 2000. He started off as a prop trader at Bright trading and for the past 13 years Jeff has been independent E-mini S&P Trader. In this post Jeff & I discussed his process for choosing the right indicators & strategy for him, how & why he ended up creating his own indicator and why he only keeps up Bollinger Bands & Moving Averages on his charts (more importantly Jeff tells us how he uses Bollinger bands and moving averages in his execution)…Lastly Jeff explains why he uses a Systematic approach for Trade Indications, Discretionary Process for Entry Execution, & Quantified Targets for his exits.
Before you listen to the interview with Jeff I want to mention the Technical Analysis Guide by RJO Futures. I have it downloaded on my desktop and it’s a great resource for the basics of technical analysis. If you’re interested in learning about the basics of technical analysis or if you’d like to have a solid resource on the basics of TA I highly recommend you download this free PDF Click here to download!
