Because I can. Why do you post yours? I must have missed that rule somewhere. Can you lay out the rules so I can be sure to abide by them?

I'm just saying that I only post screenshots when I have trades going on or something special to show, I don't wanna cram the thread with infos everybody has access to.

newschool since you started the thread I'll respect your wishes. The two trades I posted I'm in for the gap fill. I thought that this was what the thread was about. I think I'm catching your drift and will refrain from further posting. All is good.

See I didn't even know you were short, just a small a line about your entry and TP/SL would have been great...

Btw I didn't trade anything because we had upgaps in downtrends (pro gaps).

Besides from the two links in this post, I would recommend this vid as well:

ps.
oops, looks like my vid is the same vid referenced in the post; my link just happens to be directly from the fxstreet.com website.
