After being absolutely slaughtered in the early part of the week trying to short GU, here's today's long EJ trade. Still holding

Doji,
Was that meant to be a scalp, or were you following a higher timeframe indication for a short there??

I tried to get in on what turned out to be the last upswing on EJ - thought it might be tight going into the last high and sure enough it fell so ended up getting out for a small loss. Result for the week - down.

Been waiting all week, staying out of this sideways crap. Took a short this morning as cable broke out. Now smashed to pieces by that news move. Week...down.

Hi Doji

Hi Doji.

I've been reading your thread everyday for the last few months. I think i'm on the right track, but I'm only taking a few pips.

Would you be so kind as to review my chart analysis?

1. I've drawn 2 zones on the h1 chart.
2. Scale down to m15. Price is selling, off of H1 zone, with m15 MOMO but we are headed into some m15 support.

3. Would the m15 demand be my tp?

a) Or would it be wise to hold for h1 demand. If we wait for price to sell to H1 demand, would we need to see and m15 MOMO break through m15 demand level first?


Thank you in advance.
