Whoops, I was looking the row number "8".

With the BuyZone you already know the entry, so... All you have to do is look to see if the "coast is clear" and if it is, you enter the trade.

Nice work!

Your charts did also help. And your advise to not trade as much. That and with the new experience, things seem to mold and click together very quickly. Exactly the way I wanted to use my summer time :) (+ the new 22inch monitor and the new charting software are doing their part too.)

each trade is an "assessment of the situation" and if does not pass the tests, if it is not easy breezy all the way to net X pips then you pass on the trade. Keeping in mind anything can happen, it is your responsibility to participate only on the clearest paved trades.

4x=0, i have to fight the feeling that i need to trade. im working on under trading, im now wating for the price to get to the zone w/ a good setup and not worring about getting in early, this way i can get my 2% and im done. i know i can churn out much more than the 2% by trading all day off of S/R but im taking too much risk. there have been days that i would have over 100 trades and just ratchet up my account but i was getting sloppy in a lot of those trades just to see if i could get out of it w/ a profit and prove to my self that im a great trader by turning around a crapy trade.

one of the things iv done to help me to undertrade is i have a yellow sticky on my monitor that says "hay stupid 2% net is a lot of money" right now i want to trade the S/R and crank out some more but i have to be happy w/ what i have done this morning in about 2 min time when i got my 2%. i love to trade but i have to stop when i hit my goal and its f#cking hard to stop and wait till the next day.

when TRO worked out the trade zones there was a ton of math and stats that went into it. TRO, kreslik and a few others helped w/ some ideas and some theroms and then they crunched numbers for a month to get the right stradel spreads w/ stop%s to get the zones work in a very simple way but not easy.

Good to hear you are milking the BZ airball. Why not up the goal to 4% ?

Well the second week of BZE is nearing it's close and demo accounts reset in a few hours.



Experiment results?

Why do you say it's inconclusive? Looks like you nearly doubled the account.
