The First Entry Method:


Overview: The First Entry Method offers traders a systematic approach to market entry, seamlessly integrating with various trading models for superior results. This guide provides comprehensive instructions on how to effectively apply this method to enhance trading performance.


Initial Observation:

  1. Identify Market Movements: Observe significant market movements, then wait for signs of retracement or a 'bounce' in the opposite direction, indicating the first entry opportunity.


Incorporate OTS Trading Strategies for First Entry Levels:

  1. RBBS Buy/Sell Strategy: Utilize the RBBS method to capitalize on retracements in the direction of recent market highs or lows, providing structured entry points.

  2. C-Zone Utilization: Buy at C-Zone lows and sell at C-Zone highs to exploit inherent support and resistance levels, aligning with the Ball Bounce strategy.

  3. Keltner Band Strategy: Apply the "Reverse Stab Buy/Sell" strategy within Keltner Bands for entries, using bands as markers for potential bounce points.

  4. Cycle Count Analysis: Identify entry moments during extended cycles within a 4 to 9 bar cycle, leveraging market momentum.

  5. Consecutive Close Observation: Look for consecutive closes opposite to the trend as potential entry indicators following a Ball Bounce.

  6. Moving Average Alignment: Ensure trades align with the trend by buying above and selling below the moving average, using it as a directional guide.


"First Fill" Approach:

  • Start conservatively with a "first fill," using a small portion of your contract limit initially to allow for strategic adjustments based on market behavior.


Execute Second Entry for Enhanced Positioning:

  • Post-initial entry, execute a second entry during market pullbacks to improve the average entry price and position for strategic advantages.


Conclusion: By embracing the First Entry Method, traders can enhance market engagement and improve trading outcomes. This systematic and adaptive approach to entry balances risk with potential reward, providing traders with a structured framework for navigating market movements effectively. Whether you're a beginner or experienced trader, integrating this method into your trading strategy can lead to more consistent and profitable trades.
