Currently running the Trading Made simple for Day Charts and always exploring trading approaches for reliable patterns. Check out Post # 1 - this is kept up to date with templates, key indicators and trading thoughts.
I have been around the forex market since 2007 and am always looking for a greater level of consistency. I have moved away from the 5 and 15 minute bear traps that have bled dry my last two trading accounts and am now trading mainly on 4 hour and day charts, although I do use the 1 hour to verify a move.
In 2010 I found the Norwood brothers at Forex Strategy Secrets and they made a lot of sense and got me to focus on 4 hour and day charts.
Finding the original thread from Eelfranz - Big E in May 2011 was further re-enforcement of the approach and I started backtesting as well as demo trading in June 2011 using both 4 hour and day charts. The results were great and with the latest enhancements to Eric's approach I am looking forward to much less stress and more consistence - current trading accuracy has been over 64% and averaging around 150 to 200 pips per week.
As most of us that have been active on FF for while may know, Big E was battling serious health issues for many years and news is, that he has passed away - In memory of Big E, let's start filling those wheelbarrows with lots of pips. Cheers Eric.
As the back testing and demo forward testing improved, the weekly pips have also improved with the best to date being the first week in August 2011 with over 700 pips from 3 trades (3 pairs - 2 lots per pair). August finished at +950 pips. September is sitting at +750 pips and "Go Live" is October 1st, 2011.

Still learning and to take a quote from Tim Allen out of Galaxy Quest - "Never give up - Never surrender"
