{quote} Agree 100% on what you say mate. Cross was perfect when we entered (as we took the same trade) and from my screenshot you all can see it, although I took it few minutes afterwards. As much as 100% doesn't exist, total randomness doesn't exist. It's a matter of surfing on the edges of probability waves.... I'm such a poet sometimes, I don't even know why I'm not rich selling poetry books

I have another enty on eu , H4. We are bouncing over the last bearish leg fib ratio and a trend line. TDI signal is valid. I short. {image}
Excellent view!
the second reason to look for a short trade in your chart is :
Itīs near year end .. as later it is in the week .. month .. year .. , as more possible and as clearer visible is the trend by itself .
The chance for a "trendchange " is much smaller as a continueing of the trend .
Good job !

Hi Lorbax

I too took this trade on a little earlier than most I think (rightly or wrongly...time will tell) for the reasons given in my post.

Its not doing much at present to get excited about...but patience I'd hope will pay off in a candle or twos time...we'll see.

not yet not yet ....

in the mean time I milked some Aussie pips - forgot to post it earlier.
I entered long both on G/A and E/A at 11.00am (gmt+1) on H4 chart....

They both looked very good but G/A faked it at the start of the candle and I manually closed it -30 which sucks because the signal was still valid, but I was too impatient.
I let run EA, with CaveManager plugged in and it brought me a nice +30 +40 and +50 divided in 3 thirds of the trade. I basically recovered the loss on GA, and a few green pips but nothing much.

Once again, lesson to learn: do not close trades manually! I'm not saying it only 'because then it went up' but in general it's really disturbing both for your balance and for your mental health. Another Example is UJ .... I was about to close it manually when it was -40 ... and also -45, didn't close it yet but it's -12 now. YES it can go down to SL to -50 again, but it can also go up into the green-land, closing it manually it's 100% sure -40. I know it's a 'simple reasoning' but it helps me to stay strong in my position.

This is the M5 chart on E/A, just for the purpose of the exits with CaveManager:

Over-supply or are they trying to squeeze the russians... lol? How many pips did you get?

Strange today. Positive US news, Poor EU news, But price isn't going through the floor.

Very weird day ... not sure if it's me still sleepy after the long weekend or what.
I don't let news effect on my H4 entries, usually they are far enough from my entries, but it's always wise to cash-out good profits before the news or/and set CaveManager to collect spikes, like I did before on EA. I was stupid not to do it on GA as well. From -40 to a potential +30 .... it's 70 pips difference in my counting. My mistake!

I guess the news already been discounted before it came out and shows the floor is solid and this could be a sign for a weak dollar on the way .. that is what i think and i could be wrong since there is nothing certain.

I saw a news flash saying oil was going down and I just knew you would be in on it. Bet you made big pips on AUDUSD too?

Your trading is really keeping me motivated to learn more and strive to be a good trader.
