its drawn there because I was taking a 123 fail of that low based on the m15, low demand was taken out. As per the other 2 turns today which gave no entry for a pullback, so I took the breakout.

Has anyone else had exceptional difficulty this month? These last couple weeks have been wild for me. This week in particular has been an exercise in money management for me just keeping my losses small, consistently.

Maybe it's this sideways movement in Eur$ that's hurting me. I know I'm just a trade or two away from being back on top but it still doesn't feel good. This is when I begin to learn to be more flexible

Karma, yes its been tough... especially to get bigger runs but I do believe it will get back to some movement soon.

Try a different pair. I have noticed eur/usd is real flat and unpredictable.

Take a look here. You just had your line drawn wrong. Need a closed green below a open of previous green. That forms the zline zone
price comes up above the ema, ENTER!

I got in late...but still going short.

doji

Yeah - I know how to draw it that way and most of the time I see no way to get on the move unless I do it the other way i.e. see an attempt to go long, it fails and they're screwed over, find some way in. If I wait for the short move first then the up bar 9/10 it does not come back above that ema it just goes and I don't get in on it
