Managing trades that go wrong - I have decided to be a little more proactive here - up to now I took a profit or took a loss - i think that may not have been the correct course of action - well we shall see!

Trading does not always go to plan - so here is what I intend to do in future trades where price is is not playing ball - this s**t is even more important than when things are perfect - maybe -

What i am doing is - i expect price to do something immediately - when it doesn't - something is wrong - so the trade is sort of invalid - I am on alert to get out

First legitimate trade this year! Should have added really - but its a good start

I decided to ignore the trade I took whilst in hospital (idiot!)

I was right there with you Capn (although not quite as good, I thought I would be accumulate like another trader on this site and catch it just a tad higher), really felt like a kick in the balls after seeing what happened. So glad to see you back at it.

Long time no post!

So here goes - Not a good year for me (up and down and illness - no excuse I know) :oops:

I don't know if its possible that what I have been trying to learn can hit you within a day but after a little back testing the idea I just jumped right in this week - first chart got tagged out by a tad.

so this was the result - just under 35 percent without any money management :shock: (I need to collate some figures to see what MM I need to use - as there are a few I am thinking of)

So, if this idea works as planned, I will use my "stop at a loser MM"...........lets see!

I blanked out the profit as its tiny - embarrassingly so :D As I am not up there with aliassmith and dchappy quite yet :D (I always look forward to either of your posts)

Finished this week nicely - one chance to add in to the last trade
a second add was planned but did not materialize.

(EDIT) The stop was moved to keep the risk the same, AFTER the add

Looking good Capn, are those boxes your S&D or rockboxes?

They are only placed on "hidden gap" areas - nice to hear from you shipmate - all other areas are ignored (btw i like Gaps - not all folks do!)

Look at page one of this thread to look for what I mean by that - the secret is, they hold the supply demand areas if you mark up some charts- tho i do not use them as the creator of the website intended.

As doji said " sometimes you need to stop learning - and start thinking" something like that anyway.

So a GAPTASTICK week

funny thing is, I used not to trade the EU

HI Libertarian.

I thought of what I wrote yesterday in reply to your post

I should not have said "all other areas are ignored"

Rather that i only take action within those areas

I try to ignore nothing

pretty shitty week - so much so I felt i had forgotton how to trade

But, the last one was nice - btw each time I added, I moved the stop, eventually until I was in profit - whatever happened.

The exit was pure luck - I just wanted to get out - as time was getting short

I reentered Fridays trade as unfinished business! - and at a slightly better price to boot!

I used all the lots that I took off on Friday night - so a nice result

now i reset my lots to start at 0.8% initial trade amount for my accounts and go again when ready
