Well, look here, it's already up 60 pips and never gave me a chance to get in.........



"never gave me a chance"

Allow me to remark that this is not the case. You haven't given yourself a chance.

For example: you could have switched to a lower timeframe to find yourself an entry, not ?

Surprised like the Wile-E Coyote in the tunnel looking into the light of the fast approaching train :shock:

Happens to me too, if that's of any help. But don't blame the train...

One thing I'd like to add. Your determination to get to where you want to be is admirable and without a doubt an example and an encouragement for people that read your posts. Keep on going, you'll get there =D>

Oh, I could have got in.
Two things that held me back were #1, a partner I was chatting with that said convincingly it was going to S2 and #2 according to my MM I didn't want to put a stop larger than 25. This is where I deemed the chart would have told me I was wrong to go long.

While watching price action I noticed that the last correction wave went higher than the previous 4 (20 pips) and the following lower/low was a very weak push (8 pips). I figured you could easily get 20-25 out of this correction when it actually took off for 60 in no time.

Well, not chasing price action with large stop was a smart decision. See 4.5hrs later.

That 60 pip run-up going into gap time was the high extreme.

I think the M1 chart I posted is about as small as it gets and my personal choice for entry if my trigger finger wasn't froze over would have been 133.15.
I allowed the previous 2 losses to effect my current trade, a no no.

I do appreciate your motivational context to your posts PTG,
Thanks

My pleasure.

I hope your finger gets well soon :wink:

Somebody else posted this link http://blog.bigmiketrading.com/ on kreslik. I watched the video about the holy grail (right on the top). Might be of help, check it out. It's about disctractions amongst others. And sticking to a system. Sometimes the bleedin' obvious (as well as the not so) needs to be proclaimed loud and clear. The thicker the skull, the more energy it takes. Also, Alzheimer Light kicks in at times. Someone has to remind one :roll:

The larger correction trick:
I was long e/j 3 times....... A quick scalp short for the break that didn't act right so I closed it at .8.
And then:
Doh.

5min candles getting smaller, top of the hour -- asian session just opened = volatility, it was a simple breakout trade. I managed 34pips in the 10mins

Trading short to the 30min ZL now.

Long at label, tp hit at ZL. Charts were screwing up so don't know why it shows it didn't touch ZL but it did.
