Doji - are you taking that purely on that 5 minute line or are you considering, for example the H1 which broke out to the upside but failed to create a line (H1 closed back below it)?

Ah, maybe I see it now - failure of 15 minute line followed b the pullback and failure of 5?

I'm long cable atm on a pure punt lol

I've also seen the article before, seen the film, read the book
:shock:

Tell me where it is in Seiden's philosophy to trade into (i.e. fade) the gap? Does he not say that it is a novice way to trade? Am I saying to fade the gap or do the complete opposite????? These are rhetorical questions

Which way was price moving on that chart prior to the gap? Is it at the start or end of a move? These are rhetorical questions.

Price move up, gap down at start of move = ??? Supply? This is a rhetorical question.

There's also a HUGE difference between a gap that occurs midweek and one when your charting starts on a Sunday.

Board members at Kreslik. Please don't start talking down to me again LOL. Only a few weeks ago half of you were still trying to trade momo bars back to front (as I was) so please...don't.

Sorry, I write a LOT of rhetorical questions and I don't think, a lot of the time, people on here read them as such.


Dude you should relax a little...

No-one is talking down at you... Gaps generally get filled... it's what they do.
At least in my observations of the various pairs and crosses... generally if price doesn't fill in a gap you would find that it had filled in a gap on a cross pair... I agree completely with your statement regarding supply and price moving in a certain direction...

But if you think about it in terms of momo... what is a gap, but momo?

So we trade the mighty zone or zline of that momo... case in point the EJ...

I am by no means chewing you out, I'm just trying to help... heaven knows I get hammered with the best of them... but that's this game... it teaches you to get tough and learn from your mistakes...

I really like losing because I know that it's a lesson bringing me closer to a fuller realization of how sentiment moves the market...that realization will aid me in overcoming repetition...

I think Einstein said that the definition of madness is doing the same thing and expecting a different result...
"our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate... our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure... It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us..."

Hi Doji

Thanks, hope your well mate. :).

News

Its going well, since xmas i have been working on methodically going through different things to prove myself if they worth doing or not. Now im through that and chopped all the dead weight and gained more experience, im getting a steady rise in executed trades and equity.

Dont get me wrong i had some really crap periods, it hasnt been plain sailing for me. I got alot respect for what others must of gone through and/or going through now.

My problems now stem from me executing my trade plan correctly im learning what triggers my frustration, distress and over confidence when trading. These are becoming less and less the more i learn about myself.

I can honestly say i still got alot to learn.

i made 67 pips today, won 80% of my trades. Average winner was 10 pips, average loser 4 pips.

Let's wait for the next days to see if today was just an easy trading day...



But it feels quite good... ;-)
