Hi Avery,

Thank you for sharing your Rat Reversal method which I follow with interest. I would like to clarify what you mean by the statement "The RAT REVERSAL is only one entry method." Do you mean this method should be used only once a day? Or it should not be entered more than once when a trade is running? Or it should not be entered concurrently with more than one pair at any one time? Or do you mean entry should only be based on only one direction consistently (i.e. one must choose to be either a green or a red rat, but not both)? etc... Look forward to your advice.

Ken

Here's my chart in H1, where I bought was in a green candle (actually a green rat trade). On the H1, it looks like I got in late and it just fell back and hit SL.

I don't see how looking at the H1 would have kept me out of this trade.

Unless what you are referencing is the stair step down over a couple of days.

Is that what you are referring to?

Thanks
TEX

There was nothing wrong with taking a long rat trade and you should have made a handful of pips...
the bigger picture however was bearish and that is all I was saying (although I couldn't literally say it :lol: )

It looks like you could have made 1 or 2 pips.

You were in the trade for over 5 minutes.

If price is NOT going your way then it is going AGAINST you.

" I would like to clarify what you mean by the statement "The RAT REVERSAL is only one entry method." "

It means you can use whatever entry method you like such as moving average crossover, RSI, ATR, horizontal lines, breakouts, etc... SO LONG AS, you enter within 20 pips of the daily high/low.
IT'S NOT WHAT YOU TRADE, IT'S HOW YOU TRADE IT!

Like 55 minutes, actually!!

Ok, lesson learned (maybe ;-) )



Avery,


would recommend against trying DTB during the Asian session?

If not, what pair/pairs would you recommend and would you prefer one TF over another FOR the Asian session?
