Re: Libertarians take on trading

After being up about 150 pips it spooked me to dump it at +95 pips....ugh! Better than zero. How are you going to make pips if you don't risk pips? :) Oh ya, I reversed just about where I bailed and its up 70 so far. Maybe this is the direction for a few hundred pips. :shock: Edit: bailed again at 50

Re: Libertarians take on trading

Let's say that you are trading for $10/line and you make 2.5 lines. Your size is now 10(10.5/8) or $13/line with 8.076 lines. If you lose 2 lines then your size is 13(6.076/7) or $11/line with 7.180 lines (you're down about $1) If you win 2.5 lines then your size is 13(10.576/8) or $17/line with 8....

Re: Re:

I see that clearly as day. I was just on the wrong level. I thought because it jumped over the 4 hr level, that level would act like res become support. And the 1hr level was ready to go.

Re: Libertarians take on trading

These are the recent minimum spreads as recorded by OANDA. USDZAR_HISTORY.pngTRYJPY_HISTORY.png Ended up looking at the USDTRY. It had about a 5 pip spread but moves about 3x the GBPJPY. I think the margin is really low also. It could be my new love :shock: Were you looking at the average spread? R...

Re: How to be a MOnster

Another loss :x I’m back in the 95% The problem is that I can’t see my mistake. 4395EBAD-42B3-4CAD-B2DE-2431DD3ECECC.png I made a similar mistake, but do everything in your power not to let it get in your head.
