Me to. I ended up getting out at .3890 because of it. Worked like a charm again.

Haha, what a salesmen. The crash zone is hands down one of my favorite ideas you ever showed us.

Hi MO, just another "watcher" here :-)
I completely agree with you and I managed to do it myself (using space, driving lot size up, adding a zero at the end of the year), at least with the Forex Tester programm, not in real time, yet.

I found out that is much simplier to trade succesfull once you have collected some OPM (other peoples money). In that case you dont care that much and you can play better around with the moneys left.
Often I think trading is like trying to cross the atlantic ocean in a boat. No matter what direction you choose, the unrelenting waves will devour you anyway.

The problem for me so far starts in the beginning. It is hard for me to believe that you can come back, if you lost some space and you have to reduce your units.
Lets say I start with 3 units at 100 space, lose the first trade, have to reduce to 2 units so that I have more space again. If I lose again I have to reduce further. And someone could lose again and again. :-D
In that case someone maybe isnt made for trading and should stop it, maybe.

You dont have to reduce your unit size if you lose space.
If from a 1000$ you make it to step 1 risking 1.5% you can lose 14 times in a row before you are back at 1000$.
If you sit down and trade live and lose 14 times in a row you will learn something :D win win.

If you find yourself in between steps there are plenty of ways to get yourself back to step X quickly.
I would love to hear MO's idea on that btw.
I personally like to just find what % i need to get back and trade from $min to reach it.
Sometimes i am a bit ballsy and just trade like i was still in the previous trade.

Lots of fun to be had and when you fail.. learn from it :D

Hi, thanks for posting.

My trade size is based on "waypoints" and the distance between each waypoint is 14 losses.

On any given risk-box (aka "space", the thing that holds your pips) I may reduce size to add pips to the risk-box ("re-inflate space"), but once
the box is destroyed the next trade is placed at $minimum size for the current waypoint; unless I have destroyed 14 boxes, my $minimum
size is not going to be reduced.

The way I have it set up is that $minimum size = an 8th of $maximum size so -40 pips is equal to -5 "big pips".
Even if I destroy 6 boxes in a row, -240 pips, I would only need 30 "big pips" to recover.
And what happens if I make 72 "big pips" within the daily range? I am up 576 pips at $minimum!

So how does one get to $maximum size? It is quite simple really.
1) start thinking of your stop loss as the entry.
2) the midpoint between your stop loss and the current price is
is the "trailing stop"; the moment you feel comfortable with trailing
your stop is the moment you double your position size.
2b) there is another way to add size. Once you liquidate your position,
if price retraces 50% from your exit price to your prev. stop loss then you
can double your size and use said stop position a 2nd time.

If you are in "significant" profit with $minimum size then just liquidate at a profit
else increase by doubling and reduce by halving.
It is so simple that you are going to want to tweak it...do what you want, it is your money :lol:

Once you make it to the first waypoint you will understand that you can do no wrong.

Attached is the current double set of waypoints. You can go white to white or purple to purple or even alternate.
You will notice that it has unrealistic sizes, that is simply for recalculating the size of your risk-box.

Converting Space:

(.367 / .40)41 = 37.6 space
(.367 / .30)41 = 50.1 space

Regression after Gain:

Hi,

just to explain: all newly registered users are, by default, treated as suspected spammers and they are placed automatically into "Newly registered users" group, till the point when they post at least a certain number of posts.

While the new user is in this "Newly registered users" group, all his attempts to post are auto-scanned for certain spam keywords. If a spam keyword is detected, the post doesn't appear on the board till moderator approves. However, if no spam keyword is detected, the post appears immediately.

In your post you were refererring to, the problem was not with the URL. There was a keyword that's frequently used by spammers on this board ("phone") and that's why (in combination with the fact that you haven't written enough posts yet) your post was waiting for an approval.

I agree it's a pain, but it was a bigger pain to have spam all over kreslik.com.

What you don't see is all the spam which is filtered out by these methods on kreslik.com every day: in the last 7 days, 255 spam attempts (registrations and spam posts) were blocked thanks to these methods.

So it pays off to have a bit of incovenience in order to maintain kreslik.com spam-free as it is now.

If I allow anybody to post anything with no spam restrictions, there will be 30 spam posts every day here.

Thanks,
Michal

Hi MO

Trying to understand your money management technique as mine is egregiously bad but having a difficult time understanding:evil: :evil: Possible for a run through of this table from the basics?

So the above table you presented works as follows:
a) You enter a trade with a set percentage loss based on a set minimum size and a set pip box and you can lose 14 times with this percentage loss.
b) If you manage to make 21.53% you jump to the next box size??
c) What happens after you double your position, if it hits your trailing stop at midpoint the size of the loss depends on where you entered, even though you think of your initial stop loss as the entry. How is that loss going to the same for each of the 14 losses?



I am currently trading the GBPJPY, targeting the weekly crash zone. I set my stop loss at 5% of my account and I back out my entry size based on my entry distance to the 2 day extreme and 5% loss. When I start winning then I start adding to my lot size. The size of my win and loss are both around 5%. This means that if I win one week and lose the next week I make nothing. All I am trading is "body in the direction of profit, wick in the direction of loss" and I am correct a lot of the time direction wise (made 86% last year, and 55% the previous year), but I just can't make a lot of money dollar wise...
