Maybe it is not correct epxression, but I like your cold style trading. I have never seen before (live) so decisive and confidence with managing positions.

very informative!

Hi Divergenece,

I really like your trading style! Can you maybe give us some more details about your trading rules?

Where do you place the initial stop?

How many points does the trailing stop move once it gets triggered?

Where do you place the initial TP?

Keep on this cool thread and thanks for sharing your trading style!

Thanks H. I'm understanding your method much better now. I was a bit unclear on your last trades, set up criteria. At the point where you mentioned, which bars would be used for long trades, as opposed to short. Perhaps a marked up chart picture, would help out my brain.

todays price action if you want to call it price action was dull it stayed in a small range. I did put on 1 trade it got up 10 ended up +1 that's not worth a video. If it isn't trending I am not trading. I trade pullbacks in a trend based on market structure to determine the trend.

I am giving Harolds system a try right down to only trading the first hour of the London Open...yesterday on Demo +50[easy to be a hero on demo]
Today was live on the Dax 30......+1, +2, +9, BE.......first 2 trades I had the right idea but got gun-shy and bailed early......My daily goal is 8-20 pips so I am very happy with this first try at trading solely off of the M1Click to Enlarge

Interesting how you have your BE +1 and trailing stop setup on Sierra. Do you mind sharing?

Divergence Jan 11, 2017 1:25pm | Post# 36

When up 6 I click move to plus 1 then in trade window highlight the stop scroll down to stop trigger trail the left side 15 and 15 right 5

Sossos Jan 11, 2017 1:38pm | Post# 37

So you move manually to BE+1 at +6,then Sierra kicks in the trailing stop at 15 and you follow behind by 5. Your initial stop and target are 15 and 30. That it?

Thanks, Just trying to get my hands around the technical aspects of the trailing stop to run automatically. Thanks again

Divergence Jan 11, 2017 1:57pm | Post# 40

once price gets up 15 it starts trailing by 5 that's about it. what I have are 2 charts up 1 has the trailing stop the other doesn't and depending on what kinda day it is I will use the non trail if price is moving fast and hard or else I will just use the trail and just accumulate ticks in the first hour get 12 13 12 13 that's 50 and it could happen really fast
