  1. I am alive and breathing my friend. Love your trade setups, they are so easy. I’m still having fun with the earnings/news GAP trade from last week’s seminar. Always appreciate you sharing your knowledge.

  2. yeah Im alive and well like your ideas

  3. Isaac Benderly says:

    Very simple and elegant trade and you explain it in the most simplest manner so that anyone can understand it

    Hello Hubert, thanks for the Bond trade example and new trade set-up in Crude Oil. It helps to follow along with a live trade. Thanks for all you do to share your knowledge and experience with your students. The check list trading approach helps us ramp up faster and profit quicker. Your the best!!!! Thank you!

  5. Hubert,
    Would you take the Rubber Band Trade Long only if the LRCs are pointing upwards? Otherwise, even though a snapback is expected, it is actually a counter trend trade on the time frame you are working on. NO???

    • Don

      If they were pointing up that would be best for a long but it’s not required.
      You are correct since it is a counter trend trade it won’t matter much.

      Hope it helps

  6. Hubert,


    Probably won’t do it for CL as long is counter trend big time but I am certainly going to try smaller time frames, etc.

  7. Thanks for sharing Hubert, nice simple set up.
    I’ll give it a shot and see how it goes.
    I’m loving the 2 minute trading tips.

    Great stuff

  8. hi hubert… first of all thanks for the key stock earning video… do you try this on stocks? or maybe on key stocks like goog, aapl, amzn etc?

    Hi Hubert…

    Good setup. Thanks for sharing. Like the rules. BTW, I was in your Gold Trading seminar in Sep and wanted you to know I’m ‘starting to get the hang of it’. Haven’t called the number you gave us yet b/c I wanted to have some trades under my belt first so I could ask the ‘right’ questions about the rules that are working for me.

    Have you tried this contract on /GC (or GLD) and could you trade USO as a proxy for /CL? (TOS lets you set a rule to trigger you into / out of a trade on one ticker (USO) based on an action in another (/CL).)


    • Wes Huggins

      Keep at it one you get it no one can take it away from you.
      I prefer the GC but you should be able to use GLD if you do the trade be fore the
      Stock market closes.

      As far as the USO as a proxy for CL that will work fine.

      Hope it helps

  10. Hubert, Does this LRC set up work with gaps? In other words, if a stock gaps down then retraces, can you buy it at the -1* line? Or would you forego that approach and stick with the gap setup? Just curious

  11. Enjoyed watching the video on the rubber band trade.I am based in the UK. Does trading 1 contract on the ES per $5000 in the account
    sound sensible to you or what would you advise.Some traders are saying the ES is difficult to trade right now due to tight ranges ,what do you think.Also I follow Don Miller on his blog and trading
    videos on the site trading after dark , have a look and let me know
    what you think.


    • Simon

      The E-Mini can be tough to trade.

      Think of them like this they run stop and reverse.
      Where as other stuff like Gold or Bonds are like long distance runners.

      $5000 can work I would rather see you trade 1 contact per $15000.
      So you don’t have to use so much margin.

      But it can be done if you know what you are doing.

      Hope It helps

  12. I LOVE these LRCs and use them all the time. My favorite trade is to enter when price goes beyond the second sd on the hourly. TTM LRCs on TOS are set for a 38 period. What is the advantage of 30? Once again, thanks for all the help and advice you so generously give.

  13. Hubert
    the rubber band trade settings –are they the same as John Carters on tos?

  14. hi hubert, thanks for your great advice and strategy.
    just 1 question for traders who trade small account, let’s say $ 5k,
    what time frame would you recommend in order to not have such a big stop as in the CL example but still a reliable strategy?
    thanks in advance for your reply

    • Paul

      Great question.
      I would not recommend trading crude
      with a $5000 account.

      Crude is bi-polar at best most of the time.
      Only way you could do it is risk like 10-15 tick but that is
      a real tight stop.

      I would recommend you trade bonds or spot forex mini or micro. That way you give yourself a chance.

      Hope it helps

  15. Have you ever used the LRC’s in a longer timeframe? I use TOS and thought I had it set to 30 but it was on full range which was a year on a daily chart and it looks like it works pretty well on that setting also.

    • John

      Yep they work great on longer time frames.
      Just need to use bigger stop to make them work.


    • John,
      For daily charts, when you say the length setting not on 30 but on “full”, what did you mean? The default setting of 38 in TOS or something longer?

      • There is a line in the settings for the indicator that says “full range” and you can set yes or no. If it is set to yes it applies the indicator to the range the chart is set to not the setting for the amount of days.

  16. If the regression channel is sloping down can you reverse the rules for a Rubber band short trade

  17. will this work with normal stocks,,qqq,, etc.?

  18. when it snaps back,,,do you wait for candle close to enter or as soon as it hits the line?

  19. Hubert,

    Is this trade good on tick charts? If not, what is the most consistent chart time for success? Thanks.



  20. Hubert, can you tell me how to set up the 4 standard deviations.
    Thanks and please send it to my email address if you wouldn’t mind.

  21. Hi Hubert! Big fan for many years. in the Rubberband trade. If the outer channel is penetrated, then you wait for a move to the next channel above or below as your entry. What happens if , while your waiting, and before your entry, time passes and the lines change and the price action which triggered the trade to begin with is nolonger penatrating the outer channel, is the trade still valid? Thanks for all your good work.

  22. Rick Robiar says:

    Hi Hubert! Thanks for your previous responce. I’m wondering how you and John protect yourself from lock-limit conditions when your trading AGs products. Cotton was up lock-limit for days a while back and if you were short you were cooked! Thanks for all your good work. Rick

  23. Can you direct me to your posts on gold setups like gold rush,…? Thanks much

  24. Nice video, as always Hubert,

    as a trading student, I’m always enjoying your setup tutorials and keep learning – hope to someday get into the futures – if a person does well with directional options with a small starter account, can the same skills work with futures? Thanks again.

  25. Hubert:
    Really enjoying your teaching, can you explain how you move you TP as the trade goes in your favor, as you reach Target 1, Target 2, etc. Thanks


  26. Sor Hash says:

    Can you show how to draw this LRC, is it from to low or it draw by it self.


  27. You do an awesome job on your videos. You make it so simple to understand what your talking about. love it! By the way, do you ever trade forex? My LRC indicator (using MT4) doesn’t look like yours. No way for me to set -1, -2, +1, or +2. Wish I could. This is nice.

    Take care, God bless you and your family and keep up the great work.

    Hi Hubert,
    I have been using the Rubber Band trade with a Range/Renko hybrid price bar in NinjaTrader – amazing how well it works on the quick scalps that is my comfort zone. The ‘KISS’ principle (Keep It Simple Stupid) works yet again – can’t thank you enough for sharing your ideas. The beer is on me if/when you come to Toronto my friend 🙂

  29. Evidence of life is relative.
    But great and easy to understand trade setup as usual
    Great way of seeing a problem and resolving it


  30. Just love your ability to get the message across so easily and fluantly Hubert. Ever since doing your Ichimoku class/s my trading has gone “gang-busters”… that’s Aussie for fantastic.
    Can’t wait to try the “rubber band trade”
