I really do not KNOW anything for sure...

If find my self at the daily low extreme (on the EJ for instance) and I look at the daily chart.

WOW! Price moves 150-300+ pips from a daily extreme just about EVERY day!

So I place my hands under my ass and exit to re buy at a better price as needed, but pretty much just let price do its every day magic.

Even if I lost 60 pips it wouldn't matter because as often as I hit 100+ pips I meet my minimum goal easily.

Look at the weekly chart wick to wick: 450 - 800+ pips right?

Even if you consider the average of the two numbers you are still looking at ~ a 104% weekly return.

Not that you would trade the weekly...

All I am saying is that more is achieved through patience than through force and no person, myself included, knows what is going to happen next.

I think this is what MightyOne is talking about.

I plotted horizontal lines at the high/low of the previous 5 days.

If you use the "free trade" method, this is really a no brainer.

Dropping down to H1 shows the price action around the high/low of the day.

What if we use the "infamous repainting" 3 Level ZZ Semafor indicator...

Does that help?

thoughts.....

If you are just fading the daily extreme - looking for the reversal, without regard to say, trading range or SR, doesnt this leave you in the situation of always fading the extremes, which having tried this for a brief period of time, means you might as just play without a stop loss as every time you get knocked out, you need to re enter.

I guess technically price should always come back around, but that can be a long time.........seem to be a zero sum game at best. i spent the better part of a week (and by week I mean 20 hour days) learning this

Hiting it at different points..........whole different story...... as I have learned from MO

But if you are limiting your losses to 60 pips, you are obviously not playing without a stop loss and not just mindlessly playing the extremes

just my thoughts

2.5 hrs trading.
1 trade.
+1.2 pips.

It was a sell order and e/j dropped 55 pips shortly there after.


Maybe this will help.
A scaled down version of M.O. trading plan.
H1=D1
M15-H1
M5=M15
M1=M5
A 6 pip stop out would be like 60 to me.
A 10 pip tp would be like 100 to me.
Goal of 20 pips a day. I'll double the "goal" chart values once I get the swing of things.
2 wins required on demo after 1 loss on real.
No more than 1 trade per M15 candle.
9 pip catastrophic stop.
Never buy when price is moving up/Never sell when price is moving down on a M1 candle.
I need to find a 30sec chart. Waves for e/j would be much cleaner.

It's funny how this chart looks EXACTLY the same as the ones I was looking at last week. I wonder why? :roll:
Breakout/reversal/consolidation..........

Here's the chart to trade.

And here is the "master" trend chart.

"Never buy when price is moving up/Never sell when price is moving down on a M1 candle."

Do you mean never buy when price is moving down and never sell when price is moving up?

No, Look at a M1 candle.
See it go 8 pips up? Try to buy and see what happens.
Your in the hole Immediately.

The ONLY time this would not be the case is if price is breaking out of a major sup/res area. Even then you better take your 10-15 pips profit quick because it won't be available for long. You'll be back to b/e in short order and then waiting for price to continue on in "your" direction which may not happen for a while.
Watch an M1 chart for a while. You'll see.
The M5 candle patterns will play a roll of when to get in (waves) and the M15 will be like an H1 bias. The H1 will be like a D1 bias.

This is scalping, I need to know which way price is going NOW, not in 15 min or an hr.
If I'm in a trade longer than say, 5 min. I'll close it out with or without profit.
High intensity baby!!!!

Well, I took 1 trade per M15 candle and was up 4.5 pips on the first 4 trades.
I bailed to soon on those as each went for 10-15 pips after exit.
I was short when e/j started an 80 pip drop. I bailed at .1 pips when it stalled and backed up.
Then took a reversal.
That did not go well. -10.2
I took 2 demo trades and made 5 on both so got back in the market.
Lost 2 more -10.2 stops
Decided to go short after all. Held for +28.
With that chart and I ended up - pips.
Ridiculous.
Yeah, yeah. Should have waited until things broke, went with the flow, and then called it a day with 20-40 pips.
I'll try again tomorrow.

pro

do yourself a favor........try the 3-1-1 pattern on the semifor - for your own sanity

usually keeps you on the right side of momentum and gives you an exact idea of when you call it quits.

Even in this raging bull E/J market it was good for 80 to 100 pips on a short to the 38% retracement............plus the way you are using it, repainting usually isn't an issue as if the 3 you use to get in on moves, it means the end of your trade and if it repaints the other way............thats a good thing............

1 trade - 100 pips - If that doesnt make you feel like a BSD, I dont know what will :)


Image

You can use it to tell yourself which horizontal line to go in on........

Don't take your agression out on the market, take it out on your mother - in-law...........
