I am biased short on both daily and weekly. I narrowly missed a short. I guess I should be a little more aggressive with my limit entries since I am holding LT. I shouldn't be trying to save little pips when I am hoping for a much bigger reward.

I am still working on my exits especially trying not to exit profit too early but I figured that there would be a nice correction to get back in.

I am long GJ right now (daily and weekly are biased long). I entered soon after there was a candle close under and back over what I considered to be an important line. I like getting in after a fakeout close (as I call them).

Edit: I am out GJ as my daily bias is short rather than long.

How many of you generally trade LT (using daily or weekly trend)? And how many of those scalp in the opposite direction of LT while waiting for your LT trade? I see many ST trading opportunities (in order to grab 30-90 pips) as price reaches the extreme of its range but it seems that I have lost my cajones somewhere. Maybe those of you that do can give me a little confidence by letting me know that you do it.

hey braathen,

how did you set up that template?

I would love to have that so i can experiment myself..

A lot of variables and i just cant seem to find one that im confident with
or one with which i can build up confidence,any advice??

Your chart is showing a positive feel and maybe entry long after a retracement.

Im looking on h3/h9 and its showing a 50% retracement from yesterdays
down move,still conflict with the chart you just put up....

please,any advice to help clear things up coz i know this is simple, im just
suffering from analysis paralysis :)

I got in EJ a little early but I am still biased short for both daily and weekly. So I am not worried...yet
