I shared this a few month's ago with doji.
I was inspired to start using it 2 years ago because of this method:
http://www.forextrading-alerts.com/Good ... tions.html

It crossed over well to the current macd3 method I'm trading. There are rules in place for min. size pullbacks after a swing in price on the H4 chart.

Stop trading for today too emotional.

Yeah thats the problem with these central wankers... each time one of them opens their mouth the market ignores all sense of logic and reason... Don't feel too bad... you should be mindful of the economic data as well as the markets tend to move in the direction of the data...

Today France increased the Current Account Deficit by over 1Bln (Bad news) that was the first H1 Red MOMO... what followed was the Wick Doll and the subsequent Body in direction of profit...

You shouldn't fault yourself though, your analysis was sound, there was sufficient support and dragon lines to back you up... but the market follows the news for the most part and this translates into Body in direction of profit wick in direction of loss...

You don't need a Squawk... Just get a twitter account and follow @ForexLive @Zerohedge and @DaytraderFull for the best economics tweets without a lot of the nonsense yada that goes on in some of these other accounts...

That was one of those places where if you are wrong, you will be wrong big.

Need to have a plan for both scenarios.

Some trades only make sense if you are a scalper...

Hi BB,

Hi bb, this was my trade, BUT, it was a set and forget trade...
I checked the 4hr and price was above the ema already. I didnt want
to stay up all night so I placed a limit sell in a pretty safe place.
There was nothing wrong with your trade, I would have gotten a few more
points out of a long to before looking for a reversal had I been awake. I drew out the zones for ya.

Keep going man....you got this down...just happened to be one of those turning stop outs.

This was my 4hr that I based the trade off of.
