2009.03.17 TRO - NEVER LOSE AGAIN!!

Image

Over the weekend, I made a "discovery" that showed me scalping on the M1 and M5 charts was "suicide".

Here's a simple method that if you apply it properly ( and don't load up the charts with SQUIGGLY'S ), will enable you to NEVER LOSE AGAIN!

1) Only trade if there is a 1, 2 or 3 semafor on the current or previous H1 candle. NO EXCEPTIONS.

2) After you see the semafor on the H1 chart, look at the M15 chart for the long(light blue) and short(pink) triggers based on TRO DYNAMIC FIBS SR TRAIL indicator.

3) When price touches the trigger you enter. DON'T THINK, JUST ACT!

4) Only ONE TRADE PER M15 CANDLE. If price goes against you, just wait.

5) If price went against you and makes a new dynamic sup/res level, get ready to enter at the trigger. If you can't see how this work, then DO NOT TRADE IT. I have entered up to 3 times.

6) What's the STOP LOSS? The stop loss is your maximum allowed loss per trade based on your money management.

7) What's the TAKE PROFIT? You take what you can. I usually take 5+ pips and leave more on the table.

Try this method using a micro lot or 0.1 mini lot. Trade it this way until you feel comfortable and are profitable on a consistent basis. Just trade it, AS IS, and don't add anything to it to improve it. You'll be amazed at how profitable a simple method can be.

What do you mean you entered up to three times

Price moved against me, so I entered a second time.

Price moved against me again, so I entered a third time.

Price moved my way and I exited with a profit.

does that mean you had 3 open positions( kinds like a grid trade) or did you close the first 2?

If yo left the positions open, did you increase your lot size or did yo uleave it the same as the first 2?

3 open positions at a time. If you had closed the first two before you entered the 3rd position you would be in loss..

1st 15min candle - enter @ trigger -- price closes against
2nd 15min candle - enter @ trigger -- price closes against
3rd 15min candle - enter @ trigger -- price heads toward direction of profit

"7) What's the TAKE PROFIT? You take what you can. I usually take 5+ pips and leave more on the table."

I'm guessing as soon as you see a total profit of 5+ pips you close all positions. (eg. trade 1 is -10pips, but trade 2 is +4 and trade 3 is +11 which is a total of 5+ pips so you close all positions)

Obviously do what tro said, use smaller lot sizes, as you never know how many positions you're going to get yourself in.... but I suppose you have more of a chance to NOT get yourself in so many positions if you enter ONLY when you see a 1/2/3 semafor.

Tro, I take it the purple and light blue dots are the trigger lines??

I had entered 3 trades on the same pair. I use MBT so I don't have 3 separate trades to manage. I just have 3 units in play.

No. Each entry was 1 unit.

When I exited, I closed all 3 units at the same time.

Hi, TRO
Thank you for sharing such a great strategy.

Could you give more details about this discovery, please:

Why not on M5 charts and why it is suicide?
It's more or less clear, why not to scalp on M1, but
M5 was extensively used previously.
