Nice miss bettlebox - I am pretty familiar with that feeling myself

Have you noticed that the moves that really power away from your area of interest leave early.

My thought is that there is so much competition to enter that the Demand overwhelms supply a little higher than the ideal place ( or vice versa) - and they are the ones I really wanted to be taking a ride on. :)

Hi Pug

yea think you are right price couldnt hold down in that area.

EURUSD trade today:
Price was down in morning i was thinking long for some strange reason.

Finally got setup to upside, i do that some times and ignore what price action is tell and over ride it. I always, ALWAYS second guess it wrong lol.

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.

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.
