Re: The story of Yirbu

Now, this evening I traded my 19:00 trade. It's dead simple; US30 and a m5 deadhorse. Target the inside bar and trade it. First trade, one candle after 19:00 candle was an IB and it went ok but I felt there was more... Second trade I cheated and imagined that bar was an inside bar and targeted the ...

Re: The story of Yirbu

End of the day and it was fun. And yes, I know I sound stupid; first writing that my trading sucks and then coming back writing I did +25R today. I guess these are the learning steps. Now for the chart; See how there were 2 losing trades at the end of the yellowish rectangle. Both were shorts at a ...

Re: The story of Yirbu

Soon I will have to start at a new day job. At first I was a bit sad that I am not good enough to trade for a living but now I'm primarily focussing on how to make trading work when having a day job. There will be some different components but the two main components I will try to work out are 1) T...

Re: The story of Yirbu

Are you usually taking trades after a close or at the low/high of the prev candle? It depends on how price is moving and how I am trading Usually I don't wait for the candle to close and enter when a previous close price is broken and anticipate in price moving in my direction. If price is trading ...

Re: The story of Yirbu

This morning again was a nice morning. Price came in the same supply zone where yesterdays down move started and I shorted it when a double top formed. (6 months ago I would definitely go long at this very same level or worse I would go long after my short from yesterday got zeroed out) After price ...

When price reacted in the demand zone I took partials but something told me there was more downside. Price reversed and gave me a nic...
