azim be prepared to for this to break up to the top according to me i think theres a very high probability if 1.50 manages to break and we close above it ..i reckon u need to change your bias


note to all..
remember..a trendline can be drawn through any 2 points in space..what makes its valid is the 3rd touch

trade safe my friend!!

Hey guys I love this thread, I can always compare your trade ideas with mine to atleast feel a bit more confidant. I was wondering on your thoughts on gbp.jpy? I've just gone short, but am not sure if that was a good idea. I went short because I don't think it'll be able to break the 1 day 50 moving average.
hi kal.
I think it's a bit tough to say if you've done the right thing given how the day had ranged. In my eyes dragon is still bullish, bar the D1 where this is still in a major downtrend. So, I guess it depends what you are trying to achieve from the trade. If positioning for a large move, you might have a shout since 140 level is a major resistance level & hasn't cleared the 50% retrace level. That being said, the past few weeks, uy had been driving gy up, so this could still punch thru 140 as the dx is still bullish. A bit confusing, reason why I had not been trading gy lately.
Trade safe

that had been the plan all long nav

Okay, good stuff. Always stick to your guns

Yes, my cable sell is still on.
I'll be going into next week still looking to sell rallies (scalping excluded).
D1 bearish flag is valid. Previous H4 close before friday's fixing also indicated that buyers are not yet in control. Will only look to revert to buying if price can close above 5000 handle.
Will still sell unless 5000 is taken out. Good luck bro

Hi wormie...

I have a question for u... Normally, how much drowdown u tolerate in your scalp? i know it may vary.. it depend on many things and so on.. but maybe u have some average or some max drowdown that u accept before closing your scalp

Thanks ... and keep with your great work

hi dario.

Normally it's 10 pips, but there are times where I'll allow larger drawdown (up to 20 pips), depending on the setup or the position size. But under normal conditions where the trade size is 1 full lot (100k) it is usually 10 pips risk. And normally they are mental stops.
Chart below is an example of 2 scalp positions I took earlier, where the max drawdown would not have exceeded 10 pips.
Hope that helps

I can't find the post where I reply to jimmynoodles about the way I trade, I don't want to move the topic in a different direction.

The most important thing of my strategy is that I place SL above or below last high/low and I use a take profit that is double the stop loss. If I could find a way to tighten the SL to even better a 3xSL=TP would be even better.

Look at the chart I posted here to see how I place SL and TP.

Now 10 pips is a great stop loss, you must have damn fast execution and patience to get scalps with that stop loss

Of course it helps!! thank u for your reply. If i may ask more... Do these 10 pips include spread? it may seems to be a very picky question, but in my case spread is 3 pips... which are rather "important" in the short term scalp.
