Process of adding to a position is the most problematic to me at the moment.
Sometimes after I double price unexpectedly strikes back just to cancell both of my orders and eventually continue in direction I traded
(if I had not doubled I would be in profit). On the other hand, sometimes I wait too long and fail to double at all.
My best achievement till now is accumulation of 8 units over one week (starting with 1) and I would really like to improve this number :D

I was re-reading the thread from page 99 yesterday and one sentence attracted my attention:
MightyOne wrote: Once in a trade immediately plan your double.

Do you mean that I should literally decide where to double just a minute after my first entry?

The way I do it now:
- waiting for price to go in my direction
- waiting for a correction
- stretching fibo and placing 50% behind said correction thus obtaining new stop position and max price for double

As the process begins, well... not immediately after my first entry :wink: I decided to ask you for a little clarification on the subject.

If you have a cone, at what point do you enter a trade.
When it closes 'over something'.
Although I'm adding to my account, I lack consistency.
I've been bashing away at this for years now.
What aren't i getting i keep asking myself.
I have got to be either stupid, or lacking something basic.
My trading seems like a war zone.
I am feeling so despondent right there and now.


Me too...i dont even know what to ask anymore.... :(
ask,"what happened at 8:30, then ask " what happened at 4222 ?

Short trading example:
Click through many pairs/instruments until you can spot a chart where price is going down.
If it takes more than 10 sec to decide its going sideways or up.
Start selling.
sell down closes
sell breakouts of closes
sell breakouts of lows
sell up bars
sell sell breaks of highs
sell up bar closes
SELL HORIZONTAL LINE BREAKS
sell after each cup of coffee
sell after opening the shades
sell for any reason

If I cannot do this then it has nothing to do with my chart reading skills or technical abilities.

OK as promised a markup

Whether its right or not it felt better for me to have a structure of "how to look"

The pink lines are my starting point - all else fell apart from there :lol: !

Then I tweaked em (a tad) after adding the blue

edit this is the tweek I added on the lower post - which shows how useful this will be

One more and Ill go back into my address on kreslik.
Last night I bought aj 4x with last @00.
I closed all for $5.40 profit.
If I held to opposite 00 would have been close to $100 (12%ish increase)
I could NOT hold long because I could see price was going down.
How much over last few days would I or YOU have made with spaceballs and selling once we could see price was moving down? (10 sec decision)

I miss the old times:
"Is closing higher or lower than something"
