Discipline, thats what im going to work on this bout. Have to be relentless to master it, this is why im going to post, I trade better when I feel like I have to be accountable to this forum. :P

Hard to trade and post at the same time, will try.

I'm also not posting because pro and anti scalpers pulling me all over the place. Will stick to what I know for now which is scalping and hope 'it works' and 'it' is not an illusion. Thanks doji :)

I see your AU short there, what filtering are you using (if any) to know it will break the lows without reversing to the upside?

i saw the mbar short, but didnt like the engulfing bullish bar so I exited. the green line was a buy limit that didnt get hit.

Drain the Banks!
Still need to fine tune entries either by using 1 min or a time delay, which would probably work better for me. Still testing

Slow but sure wins the race ... :smt023


No,
Trading 1:1 is insanity or worse yet risking 1% of your entire account on every trade you take.

Set a trailing stop, because im at work. Should have put a buylimit in instead. It hit the target line perfectly. Out with +1.4 instead.
