BTW, that's a dinopoli pro_modified_ma..... ;)
3 smoothed ma shifted by 2 with median HL2

OR you can use an 8 sma. It's within 2 pips of same entry on m15 chart...most times exact same price.
Just for fun attached is a multi-meter that does your modded dinopoli of 3SmoothMA, advanced 2, using (H+L)/2.

Ditto the dots indicator for the bottom window. 2nd set of dots is 25LWMA and price crossover. The other two sets of dots are turned off.

The MM is based on a TRO public release MM. The dots came from some body else's lower window dots indicator, but virtually none of the original code remains.

Noushina, Let me check it out. First time being here since Tue.

I have not taken any trades this week on 100% account (oanda).
Frozen trigger finger.

This is an example of what I'm looking for. A very important note, is that if you look at entries that are 2 days or more old, you'll notice that you could have reversed the trade entries and still got out with some profit or b/e in all cases after the market moved against you.
Very important info for a 100% target in trade efficiency.

In Robb Wolf's book "The Paleo solution" he breaks down the response he gets from his trainee's.

#1
50% "get it" and run.

#2
25% Fall into the "Dumbb"(Dude, YoU Must Be Balanced!) category and fight tooth and nail but later morph into the OMGWTHSTHUAP (Oh my God will they shut the Hell-up about Paleo!) group......What I (prochargedmopar) would call a "reformed sinner" syndrome.

But it's #3 that reminds me of most (95%) of traders, (including me).
A paragraph talking about paleo lifestyle:

The final 25% (I'll keep their acronym to myself-it's not very nice) battle the process the whole way. They have baggage that is apparently more fun than success and progress. It's Mommy issues, Daddy issues, self -esteem issues. It's a fear of change, and it all plays out the same way. They want attention, they do n ot comply, they fail to make progress. I want to lobotomize myself with a pencil. I try to help these people, but I'm no therapist, and I don't want to be. I understand many of the mechanisms on a social, biochemical, and even an evolutionary level, but at some point, you've got to realize that you can't save everyone. If you insist on being helpless, your needs will exceed my abilities to help you, and I willl move on to the other 75 percent who want succeeded. The only difference between this group and the previous group is these people will not even try this for a month. they are a month away from transforming their lives and form success, but they just won't do it.


See any parallels to TRADING and trying to TRAIN traders.


I know MightyOne and TRO both will "See" it.

Hogwash. That might be true for certain markets (like the ES) but I can tell you professionals in the currencies markets are taking trades when amateurs have reached the pain point. Whether it is a breakout or not is immaterial.

Honestly most of the amateur forex traders I know are always trying to fade new breakouts. I know because I used to do it all the time. Take a look at how lukx blew out his account. It was because he was stubbornly fading the trend. This was how I blew out several accounts in the past.

The professional trader buys/sells at wholesale prices after the amateurs have overcommitted their resources and are running scared. That is the best defintion of how a professional should trade.
Eudaimonia (pron.: you-die-moan-e-a) (Greek: εὐδαιμονία) is a classical Greek word commonly translated as 'happiness'. The less subjective "human flourishing" is often preferred as a translation.

I too have blown a few accounts "fading" impulse moves in the market, but this paragraph has NOTHING to do with that. I know your a "PRO" but you misunderstand the context of this passage.

Another week at 100% win rate.

The 2 "stops" were trades I took 1/2 off and then moved stop to b/e..........1st I miscalculated b/e and the other was broker slippage. Both profitable trades.
