Bourquin: How did you come across and settle on trend lines, moving averages, and Williams %R as the best indicator combination for your trading? Foster: When I first began studying technical analysis, I read everything I could get my hands on—books, blogs, web sites, you name it. I began trying all the different indicators, and those are just the ones that really stuck for me. Now, those three work for me, but they might not work for every trader. So, my advice is to work with a bunch of indicators to find out what works for Traders at Work you, but recognize there is a limit or middle ground to how many you can use before you start finding conflicting data.

I have just found that keeping it simple and sticking to profit and stop targets is just as profitable and sometimes easier to follow. Bourquin: When you are looking for an underlying to break out on a daily chart, do you want to see an entire candle close above, say, a channel or a level where it’s been consolidating before you will take the trade? So, for example, you might see the breakout signal one day, and then the next day you will take the trade? Berger: I’ll take the trade at the end of the day, within fifteen minutes to close.

If I see that, one—we are in a bullish trend, two—we’re likely to move out of oversold conditions, and three—we’ve got the shorter-term moving averages above the longer-term, that would lead me to form an underlying thesis that over the coming months—with six months being the upper limit of that time horizon—the underlying asset is going to be higher than it is currently. So, with that as the basis behind all the rest of my trades, I wait for the right opportunity where the shorter-term moving averages—ten-day, twenty-day, or fifty-day, if trading on a daily basis—are moving in the right direction.
