Space would not change the entries of your scalps, it would change your lot sizes.
If you decide to hold then you automatically have long term position.
If you are stopped out of your scalp then price moves to larger lot sizes.

A loss is zero space NOT a partial stop/liquidation at less space.

The plan is in the space: expansion for protection, contraction for greater profits.

Position is the point of defense, a line that says," approach if ye dare, but I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and sickening lot sizes those who attempt to approach my position. And you will know my name is the keeper of this position when I lay my vengeance upon you!."

heh, I had a Pulp Fiction moment...

I'm not a scalper but I've been playing around with exactly what you are talking about there the past couple of weeks. Trying to cut more out of the market when the longer term setups aren't there...

@ es/pip

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
You plead and beg to me for a live session, it is almost like you think that i will just do it because you continue to ask.

Do you feel like i owe you something for some *censored - swear word* odd reason?

You have alluded to it like 10 times( maybe more i would have to go back and count them), i haven't addressed it, and it should be obvious that it isn't going to happen.

I am not going to show someone EXACTLY how i trade.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The purpose of the thread was to ask you if you could trade live with me. I had the feeling that screenshots afterwards wouldn't help me. One piece was missing and I had no idea what it exactly was.
After you answered me that you already did live teaching before I thought that there was possibility for a session with you.
And after all your answers that you don't have time and a lot of blabla I thought there was still a chance to trade live with you. Perhaps it just was your way of a polite no ;-)

I wouldn't have asked you again if you would have written that you don't publish your real entries. But now after you told me that instead of all the "I don't have time blabla" I won't ask you again.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
I ask DIRECT questions and you dance around them. I then ask more questions, and you pick and choose and answer only some of them. This is not worth my time.

I am done here, good luck to you.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Your questions were esoteric and I won't be a better trader when I'm answering questions like "Do you really want it?" or "How many pips do you want?". I want to know how it can be done. I don't need motivation seminars.


But es/pip I don't wanna sound ungrateful. You showed me kreslik and you always answer questions and put a lot of work into your answers and screenshots. You are a very generous man! Thank you for that!!!


AND HERE IT IS: After I opened the thread I got some nice hints to watch dojirocks thread. And guys trust me: That opened my eyes!!! That is what I was looking for. Doji gave me the right hints!! Thank you doji!


I don't know if that was the last missing piece but it looks very promising!!

Here are my trades from today (while I was at work!!!):
