So you only trade U/J and is that 444 for the week or today?

I have a problem with adding to a position even once or twice.
I hope that I could break my inner resistance looking at your charts, so please show some more.


You will have to practice with a lot size that doesn't
matter to you. Once you make it work at that level
scale up gradually.


So simple and yet so good advice. Thank you.
I was trying to double and then + 50% as MO suggested but I think it was too much too early for me.
Now I will try to add just one or two micros to each trade. It should help.

Im taking a break from bot building....so i start out with u/j...little smaller atr and speed.
444 was for today.

I trade e/j and g/j to but only ONE PAIR at a time or session...it lets me focus.

Look at it this way.....I range from 10 to 40 pips per trade after my entry point gets tested. I have a +80 success rate. Stacking comes very
easy when you keep the stats in mind and know them to be true. It was a gradual growth.

Start at .01 with the freedom sheet in post one. Maximum of 10 stacks. When you have more equity to do more then double lot size and reduce stacks again to like, 2 to 4 and build from there. Rinse and repeat.
Im working on futures....its a bit harder to stack when your tp is 5 points.

I missed this rather interesting post and chart!

What chart overlays are these doji?- unless its your own bot that you were working on of course - then its a trade secret :)

hope you don't mind me asking, but - when dchappy said his entries were the same as yours on the rb markups - I am presuming you were both referring to the "initial" area of entry - not your stacks?

once again - great trading m8

It is Mo's dragonashi indicator....somewhere here on KR.
yes, he was referring to our initial area...not stacks.

Did you get higher margin requirements on jpy?
Guess that would reduce your adds by 1.

I've been studying stacking/adding and I realized
MO is a stacker with his 2,4,6. 6,12,18 sequence.
So many ways of doing it with different pros and
cons. I was looking at 2,3,4,5,6 it trails the SL
farther behind the action.

Or 2,3,4 then 4,6,8
