Getting stopped out does not mean that you made a mistake.

Look at the charts from the top down, form an idea, then trade the idea from the bottom up.
Long-term targets are usually hit with only a fraction of your original size for a few extra lines, but those extra lines add up.

I have an appointment to go to so I can only look at your charts briefly:

thanks MO, I marked up my chart

USDCAD Simple breakout trade with 3 macro (50 pip SL), strategy is BDP, WDL to weekly target. Should I have just taken a scalp?

Same idea as USDCAD

The sharp candle up to 1.44789 is a Wick on High timeframe so thats why I took that short but also got stopped out.

I am thinking trading after a candle closes over something does not allow me to enter in early. Even if i pick the correct direction I always have a lot of drawdown and in this case, loss. But entering before BDP I am blindly guessing.

In your analysis you used cones, theres a breakout for USDCAD and you would short from the BO back into the cone?

Look left...

What do you SEE?

ZLines, Mighty Zones, BDP, a HOOK...

Clearly it's a good place to sell...

MO had also showed how price moves in a pattern... We have pierced the top cone in an area where there are lots of sell orders according to simple TA...

So you could and should sell at anytime provided your stop is out of reach... Start small maybe and scale in...? That way you don't lose a full position?

Remember if this Cone Patten is to be believed... We should at least touch the bottom line... And possibly bounce... Then break then BDP... Etc... So there is ample time to scale... It's a H4 chart... So many pips from top to bottom and vice versa...

Sorry I know I'm not MO but the answers to your question are all there for you... You already know them...
Feed my will to feel this moment urging me to cross the line!

Reaching out to embrace whatever may come!

IDEAS WORTH TRADING

Postby MightyOne » Wed May 11, 2016 4:25 pm

You have heard it said that "trading is placing and trailing stops on a larger chart".

I do not concern myself with entries, if the risk is acceptable then the trade is "good".

STEP 1: what is the direction of profit?
Notice that the direction of profit, the blue lines, is slow to change because it is a bias.

STEP 2: where would you place your stop loss on a larger chart?
These are the horizontal lines that you are trading away from.

STEP 3a: attach a line to the stop and enter a trade within it on a smaller chart (10 or 15 minute charts are personal favorites).
If you are trading USDCAD for 20's then 1 line is 20 pips.

Ask yourself how badly you want in this trade. If your maximum stop is 3 lines then you can chase price up to three lines...like a dog that is chained up in a yard.
Yes, you could mark a lower red x, but you want to think about whether or not you would do so if you were already short.
We must also consider where we are within the daily/weekly ranges when chasing price.

STEP 3b: on an M10 chart you will just be looking for that chart to move in the direction of profit, if it has not already done so, before entering within so many lines of the red x.

The 101 wingding makes for a great midpoint marker.
