Lost 25 yesterday.
Going great guns today - over 20 20 and just added and now OANDA have gone down, no access at all and going into a supply area

:lol:

More money going down the toilet no doubt

Anyway, after my dreadful day yesterday I decided to look at things more closely today.
Not I'm doing the same thing just in a different manner using supply and demand!

If you say these charts are unclear when I'm doing them while trading live then...shoot me down


Potential demand zone
Image

What it's looking like on H1 (after the following charts occurred)


Image


Waited for failure of M5 supply level
Image

Logic dictates that if it's then pulling back to the breakout zone then you have to drop to M1 to see an M1 supply level fail also

Image

Entered on break of level

Image

This is what it looks like on H1
Image

But there is an issue, to pull back, it had to create an M5 supply level... oh dear :lol:

Image

For a moment it looked like it was going to go back down but finally broke through the top. The dark blue areas are newly created M1 zones. As you can see it's a complete guess as to which will fail or hold.
Image

hit the next level up, reacted and I added


Image

And now OANDA have been down for 25 minutes.
Typical!

Apparently their entire system is down: no phone dealing either

:lol:

All you can do is send an email to the front desk requesting closure of all open positions and that's time stamp/proof.

:lol:

Like they can't just say they never received it.

Just as my long is coming into supply

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,
