If you scale into trades like a jackass (you know who you are) you are going to lose money.
You cannot afford multi hundred pip losses at ANY SIZE...how many times must...

Some people need rules so here are some rules:

1) HOUR+ charts.
BUY only when: a) candle is green b) price is above a midpoint c) price failed to maintain lows after a breakout
2) Enter twice on the entry candle.
If your stop isn't hit 10 seconds before the new candle then make a forced second purchase.
If you are stopped out then restart the sequence
3) Skip the next candle
4) enter on the open after the skipped candle

EDIT: I'm not saying that this is perfect, it is just meant to give you some idea of what scaling into trades should look like.

But I have a "fine-ass". :mrgreen:

In my testing I have found another interesting use for the EIGHTS indi...

Image

You line the trendlines up so that they stop on the line INLINE with one another vertically and count the lines from top to mid and then count same number of lines and place the bottom line to create the pitchfork...

I really love this EIGHTS indi...

Wonder if you could have a setting whereby it automatically tracks the order entry and average price when scaling occurs...?
Feed my will to feel this moment urging me to cross the line.
Reaching out to embrace the random.
Reaching out to embrace whatever may come.

Don't scale into trades, is that what I said?

Or was I talking about how a specific person scales into trades?:

This is not even funny.

$.10 x 1000 is about 13% of your account.

If you average -400 pips at $.30 then you have lost 15% of your account and to make what?
You know that you are going to be so happy to be up $40 that you are going to close the trade and then write a long post crying about how your average loss is greater than your average win.

That's kinda what you wrote depending on where the punctuation would be. :D

I agree PRO's poor excuse for scaling in is used to cover up his inabillity to take a lose.

I scale because i believe support and resistance are areas so throwing every thing at one spot doesn't really work for me.

I scale out because the market can do just about anything and I'm getting paid damnit!

There are many many things that I have to work on, punctuation is one of them.

Sometimes I will hear the words in my head and stop typing only to resume later on in the thought or I will think about two things at the same time and make a jumbled sentence.
When I was young I was tested for ADD and they said that I was fine.

it has been getting worse since I quit drinking. :lol:

I'm dyslexic... explains why I struggle with numbers... Don't even think the CFA exams are within my reach because of the way I screw up numbers... its scary!

So I have to make things work in other ways :)

I was a jackass :-( Ever since I started applying your space ideas, I think I am becoming a smartass :-)

Something on my wall:
I have to get disgusted. I have to make a decision to change. I must take the action necessary to make it happen. But, I need to stick to the process and be ruthless in executing it. I have to visualize that change becoming a reality. Its what I choose to do that will keep me broke or make me a fortune. :)

this is starting to make sense...lets say you guys make 5 macros @sixteens risking 3macro @sixteens, do you drop down to risk 3 macro @eights to double your size or do you keep trading sixteens? why?
