ECad Long
20pips

I initially had a TP set for ~43pips (1.4880). I then thought that maybe i was being too ambitious, and manually closed the trade @+20p. PA *easily* reached my original target afterwards.

ECad Short
58pips @3rdDouble (24lev)
(about 12.6% gain)

My trading blueprint from the beginning of the week

Set an Entry Order @1stDouble size at the beginning of the week. I was guessing where PA might pullback (PB) Long to, but i knew i wanted to enter from this area at a larger size

A day later, missed my Entry Order by 5pips. I had no idea if PA would rise one more time to hit my Entry Order...i decided to just take an entry anyway @1stDouble size (6lev). So I took the Short Entry without any kind of confirming PA.

PA shot down, added-in @2ndDouble (12lev)

PA kept going down, i set an Entry Order for @3rdDouble (24lev), but while i was inputting the lines onto the chart, PA had already reached my order

Manual TP. My trade plan was targeting 1.4754, but PA was going Short way too fast, so i decided it was worth it to just close out early.

NU Long
Currently @2ndDouble (~12lev)
Based on my trading blueprint
Risking 3%
If the trade works out, the gain would be 48% (sure, i could be more modest and aim for +24%, but, whatever, i know how much i am risking)

Wasn't sure what to do, so i set an Entry Order @EntrySize (3lev), 24pips above the day low

Add-in for 1stDouble (6lev), so I removed the original Entry Order that i set

Adjusted Entry Order lower, seeing how PA was sharply going down. (This was a VERY aggressive entry to set, my 3% risk would be only 25pips from the AVG line when this is hit)

Set Entry Orders for 3rdDouble add-in (0.6523). Also an additional double (add-in) to get me to 48lev, pretty much maxing out on NU leverage if PA is continuing Long. I am supposed to stop adding in after the 3rdDouble (24lev), but there is so much untouched PA up above (as you can see on the daily chart)

Well, what do you know? Two phenomenal weeks in a row! Probably my biggest challenge after this, is simply to humble myself for the week to come.
I think of a quote from MightyOne: "All the trading skill in the world can't make the market move a single pip..."
Of course there's more to the quote that makes it more profound, but I am just needing to remind myself that I don't possess some kind of crystal ball now that allows me to trade with irresponsible risk & lack of trading patience and discipline. Just to keep myself grounded every day, hour, and, minute that I am looking at the charts and trying to make my decisions...

On another note...i FINALLY made it to my next Waypoint!
\:D/ :smt038 \:D/
But actually THIS is the Waypoint that I initially wanted to start from... but as I kept losing and losing :( , i decided to accept trading from the lower Waypoint of $1500 instead of adding money to get me back to $2000.

So the goal, in simplest terms, is growing the account from $2,000 to $20,000, starting with 3lev entries and using the entry scheme of EntrySize, 1stDouble, 2ndDouble, 3rdDouble.
Each Waypoint is 133.4%, at which point I re-calculate my entry sizes (#of lots).
Achieving my Waypoint 8 times, adds a Zero to my account.

I've also thought about maybe switching to smaller Waypoints of 125.9%, in this case, I add a Zero to my account after achieving my Waypoint 10 times.

Closed out trade. I had a TP set much further down, b/c I was willing to do a multi-day hold. Two things stopped me: ¹) I started looking at Currency Strength meters and they suggested ECad was not the best pair to hold onto, ²) I was excited to finally be at the next Waypoint, and I realized I couldn't concentrate at work, b/c a part of me didn't want to lose that.

SUPER F^KING AWESOME vids right here!

After binge-watching over the last few days, I actually decided to subscribe to his channel, NoNonsenseForex.

I don't even trade his style, but he has some great info, and great presentation. He opened my eyes up to some things --which I TOTALLY didn't expect was going to happen.

He trades daily charts with indicators, walks you through his chart setup and trading rationale, and as far as I can tell, he's not selling anything.

I would say these three are Must-Watch. In this order:
