Hi Auslanco,

I was following the GBP/JPY thread throughout the week and I had to register just to say thanks for your advice...I made over 500pips this week because of you.

I hope that you continue to pass on as much knowledge of the market as possible (not just trade entries).

Thanks!

Today I decided to write about my trading startegy. Culdnt figure out where to start. It's not easy to summerize something which took me over 3 years to learn. I decided to explain my startegy on real market scenarios on this thread. Therefor I will give a GBP/JPY market analysis start of every session (Tokyo,London,NY). I may cut down on giving signals since I feel that most of the newbies follow the trade calls blindly and they will skip that most imporatnt learning curve of this pair. Hope everyone will enjoy this thread and learn .
Happy Trading.

Hi Tiki, I know there was a confusion last friday about GBP/USD tnewstrade call and that was one of the major reasons for me to start this thread. I look forward to have your experience posted on this thread.

Hello Auslanco
Good that you started your own thread.
I am now studying all the charts and posts from last week.
Trying to learn how you spotted the sharp downturn in GBP/JPY.

Your efforts are definetely appreciated. Just wish the "newbies" would
do the homework and learn how to trade effectively instead of trying to trade without learning how to trade.

Looking forward to learning more from you.

Thanks again

Hi auslanco,

Great idea starting your own thread here. It helps re-enforcing the concept of sound Money Management - both to new traders like myself, and even to experienced traders.
I've always stuck with GBP/USD because it isn't as volatile as GBP/JPY - in fact, for the first little while I was too scared to even trade it! But like you said, the more attention to you pay to it - well, it goes with just about anything you do - the more you begin to see how it behaves.
Right now I trade on a mini-account with FXCM - I'm still a poor student so can't afford more But I do demo trade as well and am constantly playing on my demo account.
Like most people here I look forward to you going into your trading style - be it, the breakouts you mentioned, or even news trading.
Thanks for the patience you've shown here, it's nice to see someone with no ego involved, only trying to help others out.
And yes, there are a number of people on this forum with great insight - I hope they post in your thread as well.

Hey Aussie,

Reading through all those great posting last week. I printed out all the posts and read about half so far.

I still a bit confused on the Momentum Inidcator.
I know you stated used the Momentum when there is enough Volume, otherwise it can give false movements.

But if Momentum is up, is it Bullish? Momentum down Berarish?
Or is it the Momentum increasing/slowing?

Is there a break point number like 50 on RSI, that you use on Momentum?

One more question the 5 SMA? is this simple moving average on closed parameter? I'm having a hard time seeing what you see on this.

Auslanco,

Thanks for sharing your information with us. I have taken my time to develop my own MM stratagey and it has been working for me. What has not been working for me is trying to guess the peaks and valleys of every trade. It is a dumb way to trade, and I am taking that out of my mind.

What it comes down to is "Is taking 50 pips off a 200 pip move bad?".

I sat down last night and realized that any pips made are good. No need to try and go for every pip on every move, as it will do nothing but empty my account.

Anyhow, I look forward to learning about your stratagey on the GBPJPY.

No need to get so hyped up Que. And yes, it is my money and therefore my business whether I choose to use live calls or use the calls to augment my own system.

What's with the attitude. If you wish to be helpful, change your tone or butt out.

I am quite sure he is not placing live calls for you to auto trade on. As a matter of fact, he will probably not give any live calls. He is not your personal trade calling bitch.

He formed this thread to teach you to trade his way, not for you to blindly follow his every move. It's your money, take responsibility for it for gods sake.

That fish story is sounding a little hackneyed me thinks

Sudden change of momentum from bearish to bullish
It will retraceto 5 SMA and beyond. You have to watch out for this kind of indications as this kind of pointing could lead to 100-200 pip retracement or change of the trend on 4hr/daily charts

Auslanco,

Glad you started your own thread. If this week is as volatile as last, it may be 500 pages by friday.

Quick question about money management. In order to obtain larger positions while minimizing risk, I scale into orders. I will place an order with say a 50 pip trailing stop. 50 pips below that, i will place a second order. Depending upon the size of the expected correction, I might have three or four levels of entry. I just was curious to see if you see any potential problems with that approach.

ukutrader Jul 28, 2007 11:52pm | Post# 32

Dear traders....
Stay away from the ranging markets. There will be enough of trend break outs on this pair than you ever want. Why take any extra risks trying to chase 20 pips on a ranging markets when you can grab 200 pips on a break out.
I disagree. That trend break can go against you in this pair so easily. Trading ranging markets in shorter timeframes can make you money if things are done correctly. You can reach 200 pips in a short period of time. It is easier to predict the next price movement in the ranging markets. When you try to spot a big move like 200 pips movement at one time, it is likely you'll get stopped out. But this is just a difference of one's trading style.

I think his point is his system does not favor a ranging market, not that scalping can't be profitable as you described. In other words, he won't be teaching scalping methods using his system.

Hi Ukutrader, Glad to see you on this thread. This is soley depends on your strategy. I dont trade on ranging markets. You may collect 200 pips on a ranging markets but @ what risk?. Say if you make 5 trades on 2% risk per trade to collect 200 pips your are exposing your account 5 times for risks compared to mine only once. My 200 pips are far more superior than your 200 pips because I only risked 2% to make 200 pips but you risked 10% to make 200 pips. hope you get the point. Good practise of forex trading is all about maximum gains with minimum risk exposure just like any other liquid investment.

auslanco Jul 29, 2007 12:12am | Post# 37

I think his point is his indicator interpretation does not work well in a ranging market, not that scalping can't be profitable as you described. In other words, he won't be teaching scalping methods using his system.
You are correct. This is one reason I dont trade in ranging markets since I follow larger timeframs like daily, 4hr and 1 hr. But I also could trade on ranging markets by breaking my timeframes down to 1hr 10mis and 5 mins . But I have chosen not to do so..

Tried the momentum indicator listed in MT4 but does not have same scale as the one shown by Auslanco.

Looked through the old thread and still no idea.

I disagree. That trend break can go against you in this pair so easily. .
I would like to point out that, There are only about 10% of the trend breaks ever gone against me on my current trading startegy I follow. Only other times it has hit my 2% stopp loss was when I pull the trigger prematualy or when I go with my gut feeling. If you have a rock solid strategy it always works in your faour.
