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.

Ahh so simple lol thats awesome thanks Doji. Yea it hell of alot better price.

I can see the trades on your attached picute i got locked out of cause risk was to great on 15min rat trades today lol.

Just speaking out loud here:-
My core trading principles stay same all im doing is getting a better entry price on the retracement. Instead of paying the 15min rat trade price.

Thank you Doji 8)

Shorted A/J, missed my opportunities to stack 3 more times, so I only stacked once at a lower level. Top Blue line is original entry, 2nd Blue line is 1st stack(way to late)

Thank Doji i think i luv you lol. :)

My first 5min enter. I was already +5 pips as it crossed the first point i would enter on. I entered as price crossed the EMA in direction of profit on 5min.
