Problem is, you'll never get everything in one place. Some place is just better for some things. Left is EU 0.3 pips spread no comm, right is 0 pips spread with comm. The choice is obvious. When it comes to cfd though, right is the choice, no comm.


Yes I'll take the .3 with no comm. All day everyday thanks.

So then, the blurry line between naked trading and those who use indicator(s) to trade. Is this included? Technically, it's using something to automatically "draw" something on your chart but there is really no (or very basic) calculation.

Any of these indicators can make you a "brazillian" :lol: :lol: :lol: dollar (forgive the lame joke)
2 trades. Very, very, very heavy lot size. The spirits still guide. Gonna spend the weekend tweaking the zl indicator.

Pips stampede.
1 pip = 5%
1 pip SL.

Got killed here and there but these are the highlight of the session.

The spirits yet again gave insights to combine MO, OV and Igazi. No wicks needed, right Igazi? Thanks for that! Overlaying M15 on M1 for x-ray view of things. Why M15? It's already much lower than my usual smallest backbone tf the H1 but it's not too small like M5.

I'd be lying if I say I'm not tensed throughout the whole session :lol:
The first hour or so is full of finger-on-mouse-style scalp, moving SLs a lot :lol: :lol: :lol: making thin profits and losses along the way. But with the rest of the trades, it's all covered by heaps of pips. MO based momentum play. Targets are based on OV. Tom's mental fortitude used, full force.

1st trade on the chart got killed at BE+.
2nd trade drop after the shake up, target for this one is still based on OV but took a more daring stance (it paid off). Moved the stop after that big drop and price came back to it closing the trade.
3rd trade is quite smooth.
4th trade also went smooth after a bit of a slow start.
5th trade is.... just profitable lolz
No multi tf analysis involved during this session. Targets are not static like OV's original, I adjusted it to match my personality my style.

Couldn't take it anymore, so, done for the day. Could've made 500%++ if I use 10% a pip instead but my fingers felt very heavy to change it from 5% :lol: :lol: :lol: In other words, sometimes I still have fear creeping in out of nowhere. Still a long way to get to where Tom is. The spirits are too draining, need the whole weekend to rest :lol:

I really liked using the candles m candles m indicator back in the day. (htf overlay)
Which one you using now?
got a link.
Sure would make it simpler than trading with split screen.

I also liked the mini charts that were higher tf 5-7 candles inset.
Could have 3-4 TF staring you in the face and still have whole chart view.
