Asian session : 7-9 pm EST = 11pm - 00:59am GMT
Are you ok with me?
Dear Nomo and Thread,
Can people share alternative ways to exiting these BKO trades other than a straight 20 pips? Though it seems to me that there there is much money being left on the table, I do not want to expect from the method more than it can deliver.
But here's some method.
1) Only set SL for your trade, but no TP. Exit it manually using market price action. Required a fully understand market experienced trader.
2) Use scale out.
Open with 3lot. Close 1st lot at 15pips (then move SL to +1), 2nd lot at 30pips (move SL to +31), and 3rd lot trail it with 15pips trailing stop.
But do not forget, only use scale out method on the setup having a good quality. Bcoz, if the setup doesn't hit your first TP at all, you will suffer by hitting your SL with 3lot. Then you'll
Im having a good one so far.
+ 20 eur/jpy
+ 20 usd/jpy
+ 20 gbp/jpy
Post some charts if u get a chance. I see some people still making a few decent trades with Asia session. Ive tried but overall doesnt seem to work for me. I do though see straight breakout trades for the yen pairs as more consistant.
Now I'm breakeven.
usdchf closed @ 1.1442; +30pips
Asain Session Results
SL: 0.7604 (36)
SL: 184.70 (88)
Used 20 PIP trailing stops after reaching 20 PIP profits. Was away from my computer on the USDCHF trade, so I could change the limit. I also forgot to track USDJPY
I wish I could say it was skill, but I got in the trade and it just kept going down and down. I put on on my 20 trailing stop and let it do its thing.
A lot of the aussie pairs also seem to be doing well. In the hours before and after the asian open.
got closed out of my two trades before they took off. Hey it happens, but i can't complain still got decent recents.....
SL 0.7440 (30)
SL 1.755 (44)
Looks like I missed good trades on EURUSD, GBPJPY. What's going on with USDCHF? Daughter is distracting me this morning. In any case I think that I'm done for the day.
Good trading All.
A lot happening this session, could have got over 100 points on 2/3 different pairs
Yes, once I get to 20 PIPs, I lock those in and trail at that point. Sometimes that will make you miss a bigger move like I did this morning on the GBPUSD. I got 19 PIPs but the market pulled back to my stop and then took off for another bunch of PIPs.
Nomo originally said that the system pretty much can consistanly produce 20 PIPs, so I lock in the "guaranteed" PIPs then let the market do its thing. I'm still experimenting with the TP. Nomo said we should aim for 1:1 r/r. So that is usually my initial TP, then based on PA I adjust sometimes.
Tomorrow's another day! You have to be in it to win it.
Stick to Nomo's rules and you'll be inspriring others.....
Dow went under 10,000. that is the culprit for the market to go down like nuts.
I had a good day today, can't complaint.
cheers everybody - can see that people are making some cash!!!
remember guys, consistency is the key.
