Hi Tyger,

I couldnt help it, I re-read over my past post and journey with trading forex and at times it seemed so impossible leaving me feeling hopeless. Now things have finally started to come together, not without reservation and uncomfortableness, but with success. Im bouncing off the walls now, and glad I didnt give up. I have been able to increase my lot size twice in the last 2 weeks and am playing catch up with the emotion it brings. But I am now experiencing that the recovery time for those emotions is getting faster and faster... just makes me smile.

Still learning things every day.....
:D

Hello doji. A quick explanation on what the three purple lines mean. And where exactly was the entry? I'm not the quickest learner so I'm trying to learn from people that seems to be getting it down. I've read espip lukz nla and all tro and mighty one post. Gonna try and try until I get this...

I see I see. So was the trade based on the price closing against the last zline going up while at the same time making a new zline going down. When it reach the new zline goin down it was unable to close above it which gives you an entry? Thanks for any input...

Exactly! Close above, Close below is 70 percent of how I trade. So many traders want to complicate it. The biggest advice I can give people, because it is hard to explain, is put up a naked chart, and OBSERVE. Really observe and make a list of things YOU notice that happens. You will begin to reprogram your brain and start to trade off others emotions and not be part of the slaughter. It sounds cruel...lol..but nobody knows where price is going. The biggest indication of where it may go is history. Every trader thinks differently and processes what they see differently. Observe and find your way. (best advice I can give).

When you understand this, you will smile! :D Im working on incorporating a version of space that fits me now which will act as a ladder to higher time frames and huge returns.

I appreciate the pics and explanation. Keep them coming. In my observation price is always zeroing out traders... Over and over I see it. But actually getting in the move at the right area is where I fail. I see dragon and espip catch it right at the tops of to move straight to the zline target they were aiming... Anyways back to my silent reader existence on this forum. Thanks for the nuggets of info.

mdsea,

Ask yourself, how do espip and dragon catch the tops of a move straight to the zline? Observe. Hint, read my last post, I tell you how they do it...
