I have not been around for a while, and some people requested me how I trade nowadays, so I thought to present you with my “trading method”.
BTW: this “so called trading method” is nothing original, I invented nothing new here !!!

I post it in a Word doc., as I cannot stain my eyes too much, still having eye problems...

cheers and stay green!!

post 29138: http://www.forexfactory.com/showthre...81#post8179581 (professional attitude/business thinking by LuXing)

from a mathematical point of view:

say 8 hours of trading = 8 possible trading opportunities per pair * 2 pairs = 16 opportunities (4 pairs = 32 opportunities)

now I should be able to make 2 * 5 pips out of those dont I ??

that is why I dont feel any rush to start trading, I know the opportunities are out there...

1. D1 & 1H candle color MUST be both red or both green
2. Entry ONLY the FIRST 00 level
3. Frankfurt open only .400/.500/.600 levels

Thank you for sharing.

I can't find a rule about SL ... How you exit your trade once you realised that you were wrong (price reverses before the TP) ?

Here the zipfile with indicators, the template and the experts.

WUKAR EA = hidden SL & TP It is called WUKAR, because it reminds me of what I need to do (Wake Up Kick Ass Repeat)
Wheelbarrel EA = trailstop EA , just put on one chart and it will work on all open charts.

Remember to trade only the pairs with bigger ADR and dont be greedy ..

Thanks for the system Udine

Just a but confused about trading in the direction of the daily candle?

on you GBP/JPY trade, the daily candle must have been red upto the hour before your trade and then turned green, so do we trade the colour just before Frankfurt open?

thanks

Nope,

the white line is the daily open line. Price = above the daily open line => daily candle = green = ONLY LONG !!..
if during the day the price goes below the daily open line the daily candle = red ... means ONLY SHORT ..

simple..

Udine,

As you scalping for 5pips only, why don't you trade 5min tf?

No need. 15M or even 1H is enough time to set pending orders...

Nice one, TRO horizontal lines trading, with H1 and D1 candle colour, great to see it working in action, I tried in the past but had mixed success, maybe just looking at one or two pair like you would be better.

Do you think your indis and system works also for Weekly/4H instead of Daily/1H?

That would be a much more confortable TF for my 9-5 job....

Thanks for sharing

I may have missed a rule ... But why did you entered your 2nd trade so late while the price crossed multiple levels ... even after the 1st one was closed ?

After the 1st trade, the next hour was up as well, but during that hour was GBP RED NEWS (Construction PMI) , so not trading that hour. I waited for the price to settle after the RED NEWS. The next hour was green as well, so new opportunity to pick up 5 pips.

You could say that I check each new hour for a potential trade, until I reach my daily target.

sometimes I go for a bonus (extra trade(s)).

Stay green
