What does a average trading day look for you. If you were to set alerts, could you access a trading app or computer just to see whats going on for a few?

I work in an office setting and my laptop is on at home. I access my charts from a remote viewing application (AnyDesk). I’m usually working during NY session and I’m primarily looking at the daily close to confirm my direction.

I don’t trade the first 4 hours after the new day starts. By the time I get home, eat, and look over anything extra we are entering the second 4 hours of Asia. I start looking for entries around this time. Reason is that I get the future pivots for the time London starts. I do sleep through London and if I wake up in the middle of the night, I’ll look over the charts to see what’s going on.

Very laid back. My idea is based on a new high/low being broken with a weekly target.

If I get my profit in a day, I do take profits. Take EUCHF, in one day it moved fairly close to my tp, took profit and reentered but it created a new low.

AUDCAD as well, very good momentum to the downside so I took my profits since most of the time a modest pullback takes place.

I might just do that, never thought about it. I also might use Katie’s indicator that she modified for alerts. It’s based on the 1hr ZZ. I could do a something similar. Or on TROs dashboard I’ll see if I can use the 1hrzz and get messages on all pairs.

I’ll let you know what I find once I play with it

Its like art. The first trade would have been worth 7R. You could be done for the week. Expecting AUD weakness and CAD strength. So any pullbacks, I will be looking to short. Probably will have dollar and yen strength, so i would watch AU and AJ if you wanted.
