Hi Doji and everyone,

Hope everybody's doing well.

Here is my trade on usdjpy. I post it because my "points of interest" on this pair for today look like yours (which makes me very happy :lol: ).

Thanks again for all the things you share here.

If I understand what your asking is it moves by 1/4 point @ $5.00 per 1/4
By points would be the equivalant to 100 ticks? maybe...not sure what you mean.
I trade by point. Every whole number is a point. Value of each point is $20.
As soon as it moves a 1/4 point I have the commission covered.
Its a 3 min time based chart. Not a tick chart.

Hope this helped... :shock:

yes that helps. a tick is a quarter point in NQ and
ES so 24 points is about $480 a contract. That's
pretty good.

Wow, rough day. Usually I am in and out in about 2 hrs total...
Today, not so much... took me half the night and most of today to get out of the red.
Back at Asian.
