Long time lurker, first time poster. I pester doji with pm's constantly but thought i'd post as it might hopefully help someone.

I can't understand that entry at all, and I thought I had this trading style figured out.

Where is the momo, pull back, rejection to get you in or was it just a buy limit order?

Ref chart and there are a lot of question marks because I'm just blank and need answers. Doji has made it to another level and I feel like i've dropped one after this.


Hi Dan...yes that is support....breakout up....over the ema..price returns into support with a mbar(my favorite ones) enter...
yes it crossed the line.... make your line a 10pip zone and your set....
(thats not a hardfast rule..) a solution...
look howmany times trades do this....its a zone...line is there for reference..

your line on the left...wrong...mark the breakout...there are to of them....
again ..a zone....
price crossed the ema down...returns....back above.....ema....enter...

see?
doji


Thanks for the response.

If the ema works for you thats great but I have to say I'm trying to untrain myself off the squigly lines of death. They always look good in hindsight but are always changing so I don't trust them. Thats why the zline/momo is appealing.

Will keep at it.

Some these trades are like too obvious. My trade on EU today. In case my haters out there wondering, yes these are real money trades not demo.

Beautiful trade BB,

I'm curious what timezone you trade in

These are the days I hate myself for requiring sleep


But someone with 2 posts said it best, I wont hate you for liking it. But a squiggly line truly has no value

^^ How do I know? Because CNBC thinks they are the be all and end all


Also, dear god is there a moderator that can save us from pingping?

I had offered to be a moderator but no one seemed to be interested and I never heard back from Michal, even though it shows that he still logs in, even today he was logged in.

A moving average is useful if it helps someone to see. My suggestion would be to learn how to see what it is doing via TIME and have a clean chart.
