I have been trying to defend my daily low today and when i saw ur post i was like "come at me brohski!" .. and u did lol...

What kind of lot sizes are u entering? do you have a plan for when things
go wrong? how do you define your risk?

I'm just playing this on a small oanda account ?500 to get the feel of it so lot sizes are tiny. All I'm doing re defining risk is fixed fractional on trade 1 then on each subsequent trade upping the size with the pip-cushion.
you can do that on oanda as the lot sizes aren't fixed. If this works out i'm opening an acct at prospreads to get a better spread etc so then I'll have to re-think it slightly as I think they have fixed lot size. Apart from that, nothing any more sophisticated as I need to see what the probabilities of what I'm doing pan out. No idea if this is a winning strat or not...been here b4: a good couple of days means nothing :lol:

Uk pound sign makes the forum chuck up a sql error. I wonder if that's intentional to stop mention of money amounts being posted? I don't mind in this instance - a 500 acct is just like trading demo as far as I'm concerned.

Looks OK to me :)
By the looks of how thngs later turned out I should have carries on trading today, would have made a fair few more pips, I'm happy with what I've done though.

Soon a case for looking for longs, maybe it's going to the lower of the 2 levels (pic has actually cut it off the chart but I'm looking at the 1.28880 area?

it is not luck, as it happens all the time over and over again.

All trades will not work out, so just take small losses and trust in what you are doing.

After time you will just see more and more things, and start to develop more and more feel for it all.

It just happens, once you spend enough time with it all. There is no 1+1=2, IMHO.

I'm not trading today..although may later on. I think EU has further to fall into the demand area but this was a 10 pip scalp long using the renko etc
