Cheers - yeah I know. If this 15 minute bar goes over the line I'm out for a loss again anyway.
If you never trade when there's news you'd never trade.


Edit. Closed out. Loss

Glad our back Arkan,

Im guessing your looking for a 40 min CC timer then?

Yes Doji, I start with 40 min CC and if the price goes correctly , then go to H2 and H4.

Current trade usdjpy , waiting a setup for change to H2.

Yeah I make it a rule never to have open trades before any FOMC Minutes nowadays... in 2011/12 with QE infinity is was okay because you could just buy the dips... But lately its the wild wild West... Stoplosses mean nothing if you get slipped 60 pips
