My Frustration forcast levels today = HIGH :D

There are two forces acting upon us: Suffering pushes us forward from behind and pleasures entice us and pull us forward.

On small charts it is often better to just go short/long the moment you feel a bias rather than waiting for a trigger.

Just set 00 and then enter with as many lots as you can afford:

I've been sticking to 2 & 30 minute charts:

D+ extreme for stops
2 minute for entries
30 minute for holding
3-day for holding longer

Had a few false starts at the top as I was believing the macd so I took the damn thing off.
Got in on this move and still holding

News was talking about a ZL directly above her...

I was saying that we should never fear resistance so long as price is above something.
If you want to take profit then that is fine, but the trade is not over unless price is below something.
