while i've been waiting for the market to start to rise again, i've been studying how to trade in other directions (i need the money , so that's why ). i came across one of Hull's systems designed for falling and sideways markets (short term trading). do you anyone tried it b4? reckon that it will work in horizontal or falling market conditions, or it's not reliable? it's basically looking for triangle breakout patterns. i'm under the impression most people are trading when a bull market is on, and not trading otherwise, and maybe i would do better to learn how to trade other financial products when there is no share bull market. i have a lot of time now days so i'm willing to learn.
