Well, they're back online, my positions are still intact and further in profit.
Trouble is I sent them an email saying close all open positions, which they haven't done - it takes up to 2 days apparently :lol:
So do I just hold the damn things, close now, or what? No idea. I suppose if it goes further into profit they'll say 'no no' and close at the time when I sent the email and take back the difference. No point trying to add any more to it anyway - it's coming into H1 supply anyway.


Edit:
Just spoke to a rep - he says as they haven't acted on the email the positions can stay open. I'm going to try to add again in a moment.
I'll see in the ensuing weeks what happens. :lol:

Jalarupa,

If you are to grow then you must remove what you have learned from your sight until

So I lay down and starred at the charts for an hour and fell asleep, woke up at 12am and starred at the charts for another 1 and half hours and something clicked...

MO, I'm still nowhere near where I need to be but you have got us all this far and I thank you for it. :)

Hey MO,

I was very sad I missed your lessons on fractals... Apart from a few pictures to go by, I don't understand much more than what I see in the pictures and what I find online...

I follow this chap on twitter https://twitter.com/edmatts and he seems to really cook the fractals and Elliot Wave in his trading... Maybe you know of him?

So this is what I see... Still don't quiet know how to piece it all together... but I am seeing some crazy stuff... Still 2D though, no 3D yet...

But, what I saw did prompt me to hold to the H4 Cone...

Again thanks for the insight and your patience

I would show you, but few people move beyond the basics...always 'back to this' & 'back to that' never internalizing the lessons they have learned.
