that are available on this thread and in ensuring that basket trading is simplified and tamed.

If your name is not listed here, pardon my am reading the thread again and I am listing them as they occur to me and its not in any order of importance.

The system: Basket trading
Pairs: 14 Universal pairs
Timeframe: 15min

How to trade:
when I see Blue I cut my profit or my loss and buy the 14 pairs at once
when I see Red I cut my profit or my loss and sell the 14 pairs at once

BE: once the trade goes +150 pips, profitprotectEA starts watching out for 0.1 and once the PL goes 0.1 it closes all I dont like trailing except when it is deep in profit

SL = 560 pips almost 6% of the acct. VERY RISKY
TP = HAS Direction change

Having problems with setting up the ofline?
Dont worry some friends would come in here and give us a hand in setting up the offline charts and where to put the tools in your mt4 folders.

EA?:
Yes I have the EA that trades it the way I want it. Before now many attempts have been made to code one, but we could not get it to just take one basket per change of HAS direction, that means if it take a trade and BE or SL or hit Trailing then it should wait for the next change of direction by HAS else many time it just get in on the peak of retracement, But that has been fixed now and its working.

But I will suggest that we take off manually for now then we may plug the EA later. Once the thread is hijacked by EA talk I will switch to stealth mode. Also if you know it all, simply move on to other thread cos here I am open to learning. If you dont see why I should trade the 14 pairs make your point and still move on.

Is this a perfect TS? no! then why should anyone give it look? I don't know

I have not promised anything or made any claims but:
I have a live micro account of 400 usd. I will start with it and lets see how quick it can go up or down. Therefore, let no one ask me for my bank statement or past trading history. Just let us use this account for experiment. If am able to put one more zero behind it, good and well. And if I end up removing the forty in front of the last zero, of course the thread closes down.

Pls don't do that

Hi Kosomolate,

good to see you have started this thread,the indicator development one seems to have died,

personally im not trading the basket so often these days,but when everything lines up through fundementals which sway heavily in one direction or the other its extremly profitable,i guess im not prepared to trade the more random changes !

having said that,my entire trading methods are based on the obsevations of the basket,including the indicies,ive been watching there harmonic movements and secrecies for 3 years now and they are by far the most present to forward indication of sentiment and price structure available to retail.

look forward to your thread

regards

Hi Diceman555
Good to know that you are still basketting and has gotten a good handle on it. I am yet to find another way to trade personally than the basket way. The bunch when they synchronize just give me the general direction of the market.

you are welcome

not much changes in the basket profit, though the chart sold more but it did not affect the profit much and the reason is that USDCAD and CADJPY was removed from the basket at a point because not all brokers have them. And cos of CAD's correlation with oil, its regarded as a commodity currency
