I don't know why, it's silly, but I LOL'd when my workplace was VERY quiet after I did the math for this one. Again, I don't know why, it's all math that I've done similar things like on my own in the past too...

Earn 6% over 40 pips...
so, 1.5% every 10pips
means trading at 15:1 leverage
And getting 8pips a day :!:

Again, I don't know why/what made me LOL like this today, but the numbers are just ridiculous.

:shock:
Maybe I'll just trade 8:1 and aim for 16pips a day.
or
6:1 and aim for 24??

hmmm, 4:1 off of weekly extremes, and adding in at some point if price can first reach between +75 & +100pips...

I'm sorry, I'm just feeling a little restless at the moment, and you guys are the only ones who would understand...

UCad Short, 10-13-11

Postby TygerKrane » Fri Oct 14, 2011 10:28 am

UCad Short
59pips, 1.6:1 lev

took a minor thrashing on the EU though, so I''m still a little down for the day, still trying to figure out what lesson I'm supposed to learn there. But as you can see, I'm still just tossing around little lots at these things. Just to make sure I learn how to make these minor thrashings a bit less minor. Then, I'll pocket 4% like alias suggested at some point, and then I'll be back on some real-type trader-type business. 8) :smt071

D1:-------------& FXTS2 H3: {funny how my entry looked on this platform; well the H3 always looks different there; but I wouldn't have taken the trade yet based on THIS indication. I would --ideally-- be looking for the Short in that upper wick that follows.}

Well I have calmed down some and my base leverage is $65 to $70 per pip
per $100k. I am forever working on survivability vs. rewards.

Build profit cushion and make some big plays in the process. Like MO told
me, you can play tight as long as you get the balls to go for it sometimes. :)

Exit: (I had set a limit order to simply target the breakout point of that H1 MOMO.)
:!: I HAVE NO REGRETS about not setting an order to close out half of the position; or maybe to have just left the trade open with no limit order.
:!: I HAVE NO REGRETS about not targeting the low of that last swing low, nor do I have any regrets for not targeting even the low extreme of the H1 MOMO candle.
:-k As I see it (in my own inexperienced eyes), at this point/area Price could've just as easily been forming a double bottom here. (See D1 chart). Again this is my own inexperienced opinion about the potential for Price Action.

From the way I do my kooky math, that's 6.5:1 ~ 7:1 leverage as a base.
:-k :-k :-k

As always, aliassmith, thanks - the check is in the mail :D

I owe you a blanket if I could get one or two produced:

"No-Brainer" Trades

Postby TygerKrane » Sun Oct 16, 2011 1:58 pm

[font=Comic Sans MS][highlight=black]No-Brainer Trades??[/highlight][/font]

I don't know if these are the 'correct' definition for "No-Brainer" trades, but when I see them, they damn sure look like a no-brainer to me. I can't believe I didn't really look out for these before?!? How come you guys didn't tell me? :)
I understand, hey maybe there was a lot more correlation between the pairs than normal last week, but still... :-k

Captain Pugwash, you NEED to add this to your List o' Buried Treasure!

I uploaded these with my 4shared.com account, I hope this doesn't cause a problem in the future; there was no way I was typing tinypic.com's security code 12times!

::EDIT::
Dammit, they're not letting me link the direct images onto here. Sorry!! At some point in the near future, I guess I will go through and do the tinypic.com thing, so I can have the images here like I want them to be.

::EDIT::(10-28-11)
Finally re-uploaded the pics. Pain-in-the-A$$.

UCad MOMO

Postby TygerKrane » Sun Oct 16, 2011 3:47 pm

[font=lucida console][highlight=purple]One weird thing[/highlight][/font] I forgot to note about my UCad Short. I haven't went back to track when ALL of the big moves occurred in it, but two of the big moves happened when:

a) Both the US and Canada markets were closed for Columbus Day Holiday

b) another huge move happened on the H1 chart at 4, 5, & 6 AM EST

I NEVER would've have expected to see huge moves on a USDCAD pair happen when both of their markets are closed.

Maybe other MOMO in UCad occurred at 'odd' times as well, I haven't checked...But I didn't think MOMO could happen for a pair like that when BOTH of their markets are closed.


Other than that...

Ahhhhh - on the Ucad short - Now I really understand your use of the multiple time frames (I have read so much and taken in so little)

Not only are you looking at the bigger picture - you are using time-frames for spatial intelligence to see if a setup or momo is hidden within a time-frame? - like hidden somewhere within the market noise we can see a signal?

I might be getting a handle on what MO's Spatial Intelligence is all about. - well, I live in hope :-)

I have been doing a "WD41" (weekly , daily, four hourly, hourly) before every trade - or at least at the start of each day - but I can see I need to alter my work-space to be able to see what you guys see - because my own intelligence is just not too s p a t i a l
