Trade this morning on EurUsd.

There was setup in afternoon but didnt offer a good price. It did wick the failed 1hr bias change line and retraced all way back up to the opening price , near enough. Not too sure what i should do with these type of trades.

e/j out at 30

only stacked once.

I have switched my MM up to try stacking. Where as I would open all trades at max lot size, when I would take a loss it would be at max lot size. Same with winners. By altering it into 1/4 or 1/5 of max lot size I am attempting to stack on orders after in profit very quickly till I reach my max lot size. Thus when I have a loser I will be down only 1/4 or 1/5 and winners can range from 1/4 to 1.0 (max) thus improving my MM signifcantly.

Think i need to start looking at other indexes. Waited all day on E/U for a setup, set my s/l too tight took me out to the pip.

BB here is how I read just a 5 min chart. Mbar breakouts...retrace to BB band or cross of 12 ema. Catching it at BB or as it goes in our favor over the 12ema gives better prices.
