Re: Aliassmith Beats a "Dead Horse"

Looked at some data for some of my favorite vehicles. An ATR (480) was placed on a H1 chart. That would average the last 20 trading days hour by hour. Approximately a calendar month. Dow 75 points Nasdaq 35 points ( 140 ticks) S&P 9 points (36 ticks) EU 16 pips GU 26 pips The Nasdaq is probably ...

Re: Aliassmith Beats a "Dead Horse"

I mentioned in another thread I traded the DOW a lot last year. It was moving a lot and handing out cash. If someone was to build positions 5 lots at a time and averaged 20 lot positions. If someone also averaged about 500 points per week they could of hypothetically made a little spending cash. $10...

Re: Lem's Big Box O' Stuff.

You can trade the 6E, 125k EUR, for a DT margin of $500, each tick = 0.5 pips = $6.25 or you can trade 125k EURUSD for ~$3000 margin, each tick = 0.1 pips = $1.25; Now I wouldn't trade either, but one seems like a much better deal: 6E.png I understand what you are saying but I never really had an i...

Re: Aliassmith Beats a "Dead Horse"

An acquaintance of mine and I was discussing investing. I knew that in 2020 he took over a defunct 401k plan from his employer. I asked him how he did since taking it over. He seemed embarrassed to say. I told him it can't be that bad. So he said It started down 5% on the year and I'm positive 103%....

Re: Aliassmith Beats a "Dead Horse"

I started trading for the year this week. It was going well until I accidentally put in an order that was 10 times the size. It went against me right away. It was ugly! Time to get a shovel and dig out. I've done that once I think - was the quickest trade I'd bailed on ever when I realised! Skin of...

Re: Aliassmith Beats a "Dead Horse"

If you are trying to get better at trading then you will need to study yourself and the market. One interesting test to do is when you feel like you should close your positions leave 5 to 10% still running and keep a log of what happens to that last piece. You can see if you are exiting trades where...
