I probably saw it, but didn't pay much attention to it
Just have a quick look now - it's too advanced for me.
Anyway, I'll create my own version of houseleeping chart
with all customized info for my needs.
And I cannot recognize all of your indicators by face
simply because I'm learning one indicator per week
at maximum.

Got out of bed late and not even suppose to be trading as I'm headed out the door to the doc.
Anyway, to many semaphor's to resist. Took these for very quick hits after they had a little retrace back across the psych lines.
I didn't have a BAG with me at the BANK so I just stuffed my POCKETS!!!!
LOL
+3.8 and +3.7
I didn't try to take more as they were 2nd line or more crosses.

TRO,
I'll get on that later this eve.

noone22,
One looks for DIBS breakouts, which I'm not taking at this time unless they coincide with a pshyc line cross.
One is for consecutive candles to keep an eye on buzzard reversals
One is for Money management
One is for open price/pip differential to see if the currency is up/down for the day.
One is for.......Hold on opportunity abounds!!

+4.2 e/j short from 25 on pullback/Milked that bad boy!!

My Butt check turned out clean as a whistle. Whew.
Here is my last 14 trades:
All for profit.
EDIT: Dos Mas...... 16 in profit, had to cut those off early as I needed to go pick up the family van from dad's. Doc wouldn't allow me to drive home after the funny drugs.

I'll crank up the TRO thankyou fund next week when I'm back to trading with bigger pips.

Are you using limit orders?

For the first time I see how "long" it actually takes to grab psych line pips. What I was experiencing: As soon as my limit order gets filled (by a spike across the line) price pulls back and I'm in loss (3-8 pips + spread). Then it usually takes some minutes to recover... if it recovers at all. What makes you decide to take a loss?

I'm using market orders.
Get shafted on exits some times but hey, I've got to learn to take pips while price is advancing and I'll get more than I see......If I wait till it starts to pull back I get nailed.

I execute when price hits the line or when it pulls back 1 pip. MT4 lately has been showing more profit than what FXCM wants to give. I noticed that if MT4 chart advances a pip or two sometimes that fxcm will just widen the spread instead of showing my profit......Those Dogs.

Oh well, Took a couple more trades and finished the last 30 with 94 pips total. Note the -.2 pip loss I actually tried to exit at +2.4ish.

What makes me take a loss? I ain't takin to stinkin loss after I'm in profit. LOL Not sure really...... Just trying to limit them to -5 or less. If I try to make a bigger stop I just can't hang. 15, 20, 25 or whatever. One of them ends up getting hit and it's an uphill battle after that. I actually had two -26.4 pippers tonight earlier and I said. NO MAS. Now, if I had 50-75 pip stops most of the time it would come back my way, but why risk it. Next.

Oh yeah. "spike across the line"?? Grab those pips and wait for another, don't be greedy. Or dive back in when it makes another run at it. Gotta adapt or die.
LOL

Hmmm. The problem is, I almost never start with positive pippage. Maybe the whole thing doesn't work with market makers (oanda)?
