I think trading IB's both ways could work but I think Roman would say why do it when you're rolling in the pips already with the trend...Ignored
I feel a bit left out since I choose to only trade just the 6 major pairs plus e/j and g/j. Missing some of the action, but I think that might be good too.. teach me some patience.
nubchai, i think there might be some extra pips to be had if we do trade the high and low of each IB (bracket every IB with stop orders).. I did a quick visual backtest of e/u and it looks like at least 20-30 pips are always there, sometimes 100+. While this appears good, a solid TP would be hard to calculate.

I had a ucad long that I had placed on 9-2. It stopped out this morning for 150 pips. This is where I'm not sure what the rule is. So after looking at the chart I re entered another long trade. As for my stops I wasn't following the bottom of the last candle rule. I'll have to go back and look at that. I think my eye balling and adjusting the stop resulted in too tight of a stop for a daily trade. It's hard to not lock in profits though
Last night I took the GJ short trade with a 30 pip SL. It got stopped out. I place a...Ignored
