My goal as I stack is only to risk gained profit from that trade. No matter what I stack, a $100 is all I will lose. What ever level that may be, im out. Once I reach my second stack my 1st stack becomes my stop. Its very quick and challenging, but rewarding.

Thanks for explaining your stacking MM.Could you please tell what is your stoploss after you do your first addition of 3 lots.If it is at pervious entry which is 12 points away then how can the risks is only10 pips.The risk is 12x3, that is 36pip for 3 lot and and for 1 lot it is at breakeven.Risk can be 10 pips only if you move stop to 69 which is just below psychological level of 70.
Please tell where i am getting it wrong.
Thanks

Sometimes when you get a blip in the broker or platform feed it messes the indi up. So I refresh it. If your referring to not seeing them on my screens, sometimes I have them shut off and others, if you look I have the ninja settings set to one thing and my macd window beneath set to another group of settings for bias, those crosses dont show up on my screen.

I think this is what you were asking?


Yes the refresh fixes it, thank you.

If you were trading the 15 min t/f, what would your ideal settings be in bottom macd (the standard mt4 version) and the ninja macd if you don't mind me asking?

Order 3 triggered

Full size now on, 3 orders approx 1ATR apart. Igbnore the channels - nought to do with entry, they're there for monitoring position later if this thing gets to break even.

Dan, because i rely on price action more heavily than the macd im still working on those.
Im likeing the standard and 12, 200,15 for bias.

could be a real nice setup coming with the dragon lines as resistance

:D
