For me, thats the most difficult thing to acomplish..."adding up" all the TF in one logical unit.
Just to check..

"high time frame extremes" are daily/weekly z lines and/or 4h "pointy" places...yes?

That's a traders decision. You only need two frames for trading with high results. Waiting for an extreme on weekly pays of but it takes a lot of time waiting.
If you trade on daily basis then focus on H1 or H4. But if you are not able to leave a trade open for 40 points then H4 is still nothing for you.

On this picture they are on the right places, nothing wrong with them.


Thank you for your time Dragon!

The other question is why should i ride several 100 pips? That's a total different story and depend on your MM. Like most of the older members know that i play very agressive with high lotsize there is no need to trade those big runs i just want a piece of it


It seems that you don't focus that much on riding complete big runs but you compensate with high lotsize, which means big balls... and it looks like mine are too small for now... :oops:

But if you are not able to leave a trade open for 40 points then H4 is still nothing for you.


More seriously, I think I will keep my trading as it is for the moment and stop seeking big runs because
1/ my RR ratio is good, as my SL are tight, and hitrate is acceptable
2/ I am not able to hold for more than 20/30 pips runs (must be a scalper...)
3/ I don't like the idea to add difficulty in trading once again and go against my nature. Trading is hard enough for me, I fight myself everyday to apply with discipline what I learned here. So I don't need something new to struggle with...

What I intend to do now (easy to say...) in order to be really profitable is concentrate on being psychologicaly stronger and then trade bigger size... or giving "Doji's stacking technique" a try, why not!? :)

Anyway, thank you to everyone here teaching and participating!

Not really teaching just saying that there are a lot of opinions about how to achieve your goal.
Maybe i start teaching again in the future not sure for now ;-)
I have work enough with Phil altough he made several profitable trades today, my only goal for now is get him on track so he can support his family and get out of the negative vibe where he is

I'm short cable again maybe too early, dunno. Also after that big move and done the weekly range it may not move much, only put very small position on.

Basis price in H4 zone and above MA, making an 'up' extreme

Entry, take your pick but this is as good as any
