Then show 20 trades at your average entry :roll:

If you don't post charts then we can't help you...

-354.05 + $14.99 = -339.06

I'm embarrassed to say and won't show..........40ish entries at 50% position size. (that's 20ish trades)
Hmmmm, let me see. 3 trades = 5.xx% increase in account and 40 trades = .00001% increase in account.(exaggeration)
DUUUUH!

Shows where I started trading and where I stopped.
Things always look crystal clear after the fact.
Anyone can sit down and say "you should have got 100 pips".
It seems as though I was concentrating on the retracements instead of the bodies falling in the direction of profit, eh?
And boy did it ever have some retracements.
According to my rules I should have taken 3 trades today.
2 long and 1 short.
Go figure.

If I would follow the rules this would be cake.
up/down/up/down
I am the market and the market is me. LOL

Now it's time to get comfortable with what the "operators" are doing and all will be well.

I'll post all the entries later when I can get fxcm's website to work.
I really don't think it's necessary though as there is no way to learn unless I'm trying to follow a plan. These trades were bogus/gambling trades.

As someone who hit that 100 pips today - twice and once yesterday on the EuroJpn (I'm not bragging - I've lost thousands on the way here - thank god for 10 cent pips) - I can offer you the following advice, that really gave me a clue. I'm not telling you to trade like this, but just to give you a sense of the larger picture.

Use 15 minute candles and set the custom candle to 240 minutes
Mark off the beginning of each trading day - for me it is 5 pm EST and the open price.

Then use the semaphor and look how price behaves around the open price, when and how it breaks, retraces and consolidates and the different types of long moves - (these are the ones you want to capture)

Even when scalping, it will make grabbing 20 pips that much easier. It will help you to pick which horizontal lines to trade at

Thx razor and TRO but
Hold on little doggies,
I'M IN TRAINING!!!!

This is getting personal. If I cannot follow rules consistently for a couple weeks I don't get to move on. It's horizontal lines or it's a kick in the butt.

I Thank you for your insight and I will look at the M.O. sit down line a little closer. I'm starting to SEE much more but I'm getting overzealous and not sticking to the plan of attack. This market does the same thing over and over every day. It's me that changes. Once I get consistent I'll move on to "other" systems if need be.
As badly as I want my account HUGE, I also want to be consistent.

Therefore I must continue with the basics.
It's that danged M1/M5 chart that gets me jumpy, I've got to close that thing out after I enter with a momentum swing. Close it out I say. LOL

I was actually out of the office during both runs otherwise I would have added positions

The run up - taking my 5 year old to school
the run down - meeting

Just a matter of picking up on the pattern that price is moving - hit 100 yesterday and 100 the day before watching the way price moved after consolidation from the open at 5 pm est and figuring out the best time frames to play agaist each other - 15 minute candles on 4 hour candles seems to work best for me

I figure there are only 6 patterns relative to the open to watch for - 3 up and 3 down

if Price breaks from consolidation but doesn't hold the open price- looking for a reversal
If price breaks from consolidation, holds the open price and doesnt retrace at all - look for a steep fast run- (i can tell by the lack of semafor numbers how steep it is) and a big (50%) retrace when it finally stops and then another solid turn
If price breaks, holds the open, has a nice consolidation not too far from the open, the run will be more gradual and longer, but with fewer corrections along the way

And this sums up the EUROYEN for the last two days...........

Just to note,
I will be trading the Asian session the next week or so to see how it works out schedule wise.

Staying up late after work is killing me. I'm only getting about 4hrs sleep a day (sometimes a lot less). In the afternoons I'm dragging butt and can't seem to get any "work" done around the house or spend quality time with the family.
Workouts have been slacking and diet has been a little iffy too.
No sleep lowers testosterone levels and this is not the age for that to happen. My wife is 9 yrs younger. LOL

When I go full time as a trader It will work out best to trade the London session, sleep in, and have all afternoon with the family in a "fresh" state.

just wait till she hits 35 - but that is another story


take a look at this post from Dragon from a bit back - didnt even notice it when I wrote what i wrote before

Keep playing how you are playing, but take note of the longer time frame


http://kreslik.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=16805#16805

For day traders, it seem like the 4 hour time frame is the most influential as far as setting the tone for the lower periods.

@pro

Have you tried the talking indi I wrote? It will only signal once per hour and direction! Just like in the rules. The idea is to distract yourself with something else so you cannot trade out of boredom. Then, when the indicator begins counting down you can shift your attention back on the chart.
Don't know if this works for you. I guess so, because if following the rules your performance was great.
