wow gold in the game to buy items or level up. And I believe it is not a secret the way you can get a huge wow po fast is through buying wow gold online. But buying wow gold online also has risk, so you should find a reliable site to buy wow gold to ensure your account safely. I am a wow fan and buy wow gold from http://www.goldsender.fr/world-of-warcraft-gold.html. It is a reliable website, if you buy wow gold at this site, your account will be safe.


Any chance we can create a 24 hour delay between registering and making your first post to deter these people?

Drives me wild, someone made like 40 or 50 posts the other day

13 card rummy
I have no idea how to play backgammon, I suppose the learning curve was shorter given the choice between the two

I see reason enough for either and I'm not sure if you're in this right not (I am not) but for curiosity why one over the other

I am not sure what your question is?

Well my questions were whether or not you were trading this now, it kind of goes against the not at this time of day rule

I originally thought you were long but the question remains the same. Why gbp vs eur, the move looks almost the same on a small time frame

Doji a question for you..

On Dragon s charts, he usually waits until 1h candle changes colour before he enters the trade away from 1h/4h z line. You are a scalper, so you will know this. In your experiance is it a good idea to scalp reactions, when the price arriwes at the mayor z line? I m attaching yesterdays eur trade. The price arriwed in 1h/4h z line and there were 3 scalp opportunities, which would have yielded at least 30-40 pips. If i would have waited for 1h colour change the entry would be 20-25 pips lower. So what are your thoughts, do you scalp first reactions on a mayor z line? I m attaching charts for a better understanding of what i mean.

J,

Attachments of you pics is alot easier to mark up and see. I cant blow up your pics and keep good resolution.

Here is the mark ups of my entry vs Dragons. Remember he is trading a 4 hour chart range witha 15 min entry. I scalp, in and out.

hope this helps
