Great Stuff Doji

I luv the pics. I saved em to my trading collection :)

how i simplified my trading, was via flowcharts. I broke down how and when and why i did things during process of trading from drawing lines to looking for setup to looking for entries to managing the trade to exits.

I did flowchart for everything and then optimized each stage. Its very much like programming and them optimizing that code to run faster.

It also helped me with my discipline, its made it very clear to me what i should be doing and when.

I would of taken the second entry but i was still asleep at that stage :D . The first one you marked up never triggered according to my trade plan. I like to see bit of effort to push beyond the close. Also i wouldnt taken the first one just because of its proximity to european openining. If im not in a trade and time gets down to last 30mins before session opens i will wait. The increase in probablity of getting a faked out increases i find.
