Thanks for all the replies.
I've checked the trade again, and it was my own mistake.
I took the trade too fast without checking all colors of H1, D1, W1.
And as DodgeV83 said, it's not enough separation, it was just about to happen.

These are my trading rules:
1 Price within 20 pips of the daily low - that is OPPORTUNITY 
2 Red candle closes 
3 Green candle closes - note the high price of the green candle. 
4 Enter long at the green candle's high price (+ spread)
5 STOP LOSS IS 10 PIPS (Including Spread)
6 Take whatever profit you can. 
7 If the rules do not mention it, then it is of no concern
8 Maximum Risk = 2% of Account Balance
9 ONE trade per H1 candle. This restriction will cause you to choose carefully

I'll have to add the rules to watch the color of H1, D1 & W1.
I normally check the H1 color, sometimes for D1 & only occassionally for W1.
The reason is because if when W1 is red, I almost can't do any trades for the week.
And the last previous trades have been ok, so I think I got carried away without looking any other TF.

THERE IS NO TREND!

TREND EXISTS ONLY IN THE MIND OF THE TRADER.

IT'S NOT WHAT YOU TRADE, IT'S HOW YOU TRADE IT!

Please do NOT PM me with trading or coding questions, post them in a thread.

Hi Naynay,

I had 20 pips on the real, but with 1 trade, it took a long time but I did.

Hey paupau, with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight, your entry happened to be just where a turn was taking place.

But then, anything could have happened. :roll:

Trading counter-trend luck ran out when I entered up when the rat zones were crossed.

Lesson learnt:- either don't trade when rat zones are crossed, or stick to trading in the direction of the daily trend if a signal appears.

At least, that would have been the right play today on the Euro.

TRO,

Long time Yale student here..

I just finished a 270 pages of this thread and am very impressed w the simplicty of your DTB LAR "system"

I must say that I'm learning to "see" with a demo account, and have had my cheese eaten more times that I've eaten cheese..

This is primarily b/c I was green rat trading against a red H1 current..

I have noticed that my trading has drastically improved when I see that the downtrend is "slowing" and beginning to stall.. THEN look for green rat trades..

But, long ways to go to get the Yale out of my system, but, I just wanted to thank you for your "sticking with" this thread for 270 pages..

:-)


And for helping all of us Yaleys..

Price within 20 pips of the daily low (ClLo <= 20) - that is OPPORTUNITY

Current price - current daily low is less than 20 pips.

I'd wait a bit longer before buying any pounds, TRO.
Seems like the Euro wants to fall to bits first and take the pound with it for a while
