You should be able to press for a few trades with all of that space left over from previous trades.

(Smallest: 3 + 2 + 1 + 1 = 7)

Trade 1: 5 + 4 + 3 + 2 = 14

Trade 2: 8 + 6 + 4 + 3 = 21
14/8 = +75% space
Trade 3: 12 + 9 + 7 + 4 = 32
21/12 = +75% space

Trade 1: ...

Hey fellow traders,

Just wanted to post some thoughts since alot of the old timers (been here for a while) seem to be coming back and still struggling and not making a profit.

If your still one of those struggling, look at how you handle the data you see. Are you being flooded with more than 2-3 variables in your analysis? What do you do when your analysis says react. This is where thoughts drop off for most but is the most important part of being a successful trader. Can you trade with any chart, any time frame? What about without a chart? Just prices? If you cant, you need to look forward to the thought processes that are not occrurring after your in the trade. Anyone can hit buy or sell. How does one think about the thougth process to come if they are not doing it? Thats my point. What are you missing. I still dont have a clear understanding of extremes. Everyone seems to avoid the definition of it or has problems explaining it and how it relates to trading. I dont need it, maybe i am using it and dont realize it, it doesnt matter. Without simple "switches" in a chronological order that can be understood and flipped when they need to be flipped your missing out. Someone commented on how the blubb zone messed them up for long time. Why? I can tell you, there were know clear switches to activate and progress from if "a" happened or "b" happened. My entries hardly ever match Dragons, im close within 10 pips usually better or worse, when chasing to be like someone will damage your ability to progress. Mo's labels his as ideas, each and everyone in its self is tradeable, Space is MM, period. Stacking is MM period. Define these ideas by a limited number of switches. The ideas in my thread, are very simple and defined yet traders dont limit there processes in using them thus destroying there own odds. LOOK at the cones, dont get hung up on how to draw them, there are hundreds of ways to draw them. Overtrading is big with alot of traders of groups i have been in and seen on here. What does that mean to you? Over trading means to me, NO end .... no goal...thus no end... we cant win forever. Failure feeds the fear in our minds due to our failure to simplify the task at hand.

just hoping this will click for some of you that struggle with these issues. I hope you understand what these issues are. Its not the ideas or methods, its the unlimited realm definitions beyond those methods or systems.
