Hi Doji, i didnt see your post, but regroup and get back in the saddle.

Things i would do if i was you. Im sure you are doing it anyway.

Pick apart the losing trades looking at the techinical aspects and your emotional mindset when you was taking those trades.

This will tell you whats happened. From there you can take corrective action.

Take it as lesson the markets trying to teach you.

Its just bump in road you will soon pass it dude.

Well Im working on a transition to FXCM then to e-mini's and futures in December.

Trading in demo till next Friday to get used to the new platform. I'm also making fine adjustments also to make sure my style of trading will work with the e-mini's and futures.

One thing I do notice is there is alot less, noise per say, with the e-mini's and futures.

Todays trade and pics are just fine adjustments to the method.

Have a great weekend!

Looks like 1-2-3 to me :)

Or back into value trading..

http://screencast.com/t/vGIvWwO8

That's a perception of breakout of a small range developing into a trend on a longer time frame.

Trend ? Consolidation ? All a matter of perception. Perception is all that matters. One might even have the perception that it doesn't exist..
This is my new signature: "new signature".

Not a 123 or 'back into value' whatever that is, although it looks like a 123 this time.
Done it nearly every day this week on EU.

Price had been moving down the day before to...a line I'd marked before which was the last clear upswing on the daily. Then, last apparent H4 move down, draw a line and screw the last in tail-enders over, looks like a 123 on the 15 minute chart but it doesn't matter if it makes a perfect 123, it doesn't often make a nice, pretty text book pattern, what matters is the tail-enders getting screwed over. Classic 'fake out'.

Triangles are channels, channels are triangles, but trend lines are something else entirely.

Trend lines are not channels nor are they part of channels but are drawn after there is a breakout from a channel.

Horizontal lines are drawn after momentum candles or steep moves & cut through around the center of this area between the 33 & 66% RET.

We define triangles by double hooks and even expansions to larger triangles/channels & we religiously try to exclude breakouts from the pattern...
...here is a picture of what I mean:
