No Trades on the EurUsd.

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

Hey bettlebox good to see you doing well.

Thx for the cartoon clip of the one that got away. It captures the emotions nicely, not only for the ones just missed but also for the days when I just don't see what's happening. It's going to be a header for my notes on trades that didn't work.

In relation to your chart of the same post and assuming you do not mind me commenting - given that any line in a mighty zone is a Z/Line, why not set the alarm on the highest line or even the start of the mighty zone?
Is price closing higher or lower than something? Simple yet powerful question. ..MO

Hi Humble

good advice.


Here is my eurusd trade today. I missed the first attempted pulled back cause i was demanding a price level on 5min. It gave it to me on second pull back :D.

Your setup reminds me of this video newscalper...

Sort of I guess, thanks for the video. I'll watch the series :D - I'm just trying to fathom what Dragon's doing, it's just S/D stuff but I've been looking at a few other sites and also Captain Pugwash and I think the pointy as Captain sees it is quite key along with the momo.
I know the things been going up all week but I'm not getting in that high - probably have to wait until next week until I can short when it gets up into that zone...IF it gets up into that zone, otherwise I'll have sat and watched it for over a week for nothing.

Due to a storm, we lost power for 4 days. Nice break but nice to be back.

Newscalper this how i do it. I use 33zz semphor to mark extremes and draw my classic zlines line for 1hr and 4hr at pivot points where there is a semaphor. I use dark blue and light blue lines on chart to indicate if its 1hr zline or 4hr zline.

Once price returns to these zlines i will watch for momentum on the lower timeframes to tell me to exit or enter, its really that simple.

Took me ages with alot blood and sweat to peice together. If you think about why price reacted here kind of obvious why they work.

Note: If price wicks zline i count it as still valid. If closes beyond and keeps going i will scrub that zline.
