TRO: Sorry, I pressed the wrong "reply". It was intended to ask MightyOne to draw the lines of his trades on his charts.

Just a couple of INSIDE BAR short trades... Not "DIBS" trades.

"Is price up or down?"

"COMPARED TO WHEN?" is the appropriate response.

TRO PRICE METER, shows if price is up or down compared to the start of the hour.

You don't have to be so mechanical; even the go long only can be ruled out in certain situations as you wait for some thing more probable.

Do the dots make it more easy to SEE :wink:

A trader asked to have the "PIPS AWAY FROM TRIGGER" added to the DIBS FOR DUMMIES indicator so they would know which one to trade next.

My first live trade!!

Took "awhile" to actually take the plunge. A few times I had placed pending orders, only to remove them before they could trigger. Then it seemed that many pairs were moving down, down, down and I was in a quandry as to whether they could still move down as they were already at or well past their normals ranges.

But I finally let one trigger...eurusd short. I saw an IB on the Mt4 chart, and put the pending sell at price just below it's low on FXCM where I marked the top black line. H1 & D1 were both red, and it was below the daily open. It triggered and started going down...Great! I thought. Then it started going up..not so great. I hadn't put a s/l so my finger was poised over the close position button if it got to be more than -20...and it got to that point.

So then I decided, if I was going to lose this one, then maybe I could wait until it wiggled back down a bit and close around -10 instead. And it did go back down, and then in a couple of quick pulses, went into profit again and hit my t/p for +9 :)

Steady your mind lass!

Only the last candle/whole picture matters; the current candle is just history in the making :wink:
