Did you know what would happen? NO!

All that was known was that price was closing higher than "something"

A little bit of graciousness bestowed upon me:

AU Long, 3lots, 110pips, 3.3%

Entry:

Exit:

Funny thing is, the reason why I closed out as opposed to starting a SPACE WARS thing on this is b/c I thought I only had *2*lots on. I say to myself, "I'd rather just keep the profit from the 2 now and have another go at a Long attempt later; rather than try to turn a 2:1lev trade into something special and then having prices pull back on me significantly."

I guess I now have a box to work with??...:-k \\:D/

========================================
Surely, the reason why fro the move lies below:
Fed Sees Rates Staying Near Zero Through Late 2014
Fed: Benchmark Rate Will Stay Low Until Late 2014
Dollar Weakens to One-Month Low as Fed Extends Rate Target to Late 2014

Throw this one in for good measure~

All night I thought about last post and I concluded that I'm not able to trade middle therm because my heart can't stand it. But I'll use watching from bigger distance in my MM. I'll do some tests for month and if it's gonna be some positives I'll post it on forum

:shock: :shock: :shock:

At one point during the week, my intra-week gains had me only 5.6% away from my initial starting balance of $1250. I then got super-aggressive stupidly and hit myself with my own leverage sword. :lol:
I wonder if I can find some of my likeable trades from the week for review...

After that, busy season kicked in hardcore at the j-o-b and all I could really do was observe the market...that and come home and hit up The Rack.

OMG, this busy season was off the hook!!...every busy season pushes me to perfect my trading skill...so that I don't need to be around for another busy season :!:

It looks like I still need another week to cross some t's and dot some i's on my workflow, so Week 19 might be another goose egg.
I hate the mild anxiety I get when it's time to start 're-trading'.

I just need to remember and keep repeating my "Calm the -F- Down" mantra:

Well for my trading in general, I have recently been choosing a pair, drawing a line on the previous day's D1 candle (by zooming into the H1 and looking for an area), and trading Long above Short below.
Friday was the day that killed me for this week, I was hotheaded and stubborn the way I managed the trading that day. I was pretty much stalking my charts day and night, trying to accumulate a profit cushion so I could roll it into a big position. I was trading mostly AU. I have no idea why it was so hard for me to accumulate anything this week. Not that I've been having super-great results thus far, BUT for the fact that I was so glued to my computer this particular week, it was baffling/irritating how I kept missing what I needed. By Thurs night/Fri, I was no more than -1%. I put my foot down and declared "Profit cushion or not, I'm making my big AU trade NOW!"

The PA over the last two days looked to be setting up nicely, plus there was a nice bit of D1 Zlining that just happened, so I figured a swing low had been set --and that I had the all clear to go prematurely higher leverage...that sh!t spiked/whiplashed so bad, I was checking my calendar to see if was NFP day, LOL. And it definitely was just a spike where price pretty much recovered back to previous levels...The most irritating part of that spike being, that even if I had caught my OPTIMAL entry and was holding it from TWO DAYS BACK, that area/ swing low got violated as well.

I have to say, at the current moment, if I'm building up a position, I don't like the idea of placing Stop orders to automatically shed lots for me, I'd much rather try and be more personally involved at that time, but maybe I am just being backwards...

I know, I know, pictures would help, I have 'em; lets see if I can get them out.

Week 12

CLOSED TRADES=4.24% | CLOSED TRADES [plus] OPEN POSITIONS=13.75%

:shock: :shock: :shock:

Surprisingly few trades this week.

Gradually circling in and narrowing down my entry criteria and finding the ltf PA that makes me go :)
Different Stop Losses and maybe Entry Leverage as I rank my entry setups.
Will need to write these down several times over I suppose as I try to prioritize and rank them.
Hopefully, soon (while understanding that I am NOT trying to find a Holy Grail of entries) I will feel satisfied enough in them to commit them to Procedural Memory.

Trading based on Daily line has been a GREAT help as far as helping analyze what I'm doing for entries. Just flip-flopping my bias with each MOMO and then trying to find what makes a good entry good through all that definitely complicated things more for me than they needed to be.

As for attaining one-ness with my Entries, recently, it's not so much a lightbulb going off, as it is a lightbulb wavering (? is that the right word?); dim, then bright, then dim, then BRIGHT, then DIM, then Bright...

A more deliberate attempt of using SPACE WARS this week. I think I have some great step-by-step pictures of how I went about the whole thing, will definitely be a good review to me, I was surprised how I was able to flow into using it maybe. Maybe I was just having a clear thinking week.

Definitely, built up into a great AU trade this week though, ended Friday with a beautiful picture of my trading station. Of course the positions are still open, so I can't call the profits mine...I don't want to close it though, it looks like quite the nice breakout, even if it means that some Zlining is about to occur (a.k.a. a PERFECT opportunity for those who prefer to trade the Breakout Bounce...) {SPACE don't fail me now, lol}

Other than that, Krane is about to have a WHOLE LOT LESS free time...{sigh}, but for good reasons at least.
