Trading bounces off daily chart trend lines
I wanted to start a thread for anyone interested in trading bounces of trend lines drawn on daily charts ...

Feel free to post some charts !

If there is nothing to find on the daily's I'll go down to the H4 charts ...a work in progress.

So basically my idea for the system is , enter at the touch of the trend line then target should be minimum 3 x the stop .Stops will be around 100/200 pips .

Another option would be to zoom in to the H1 chart at the touch of a line and watch the price action ....then hide your stop behind a pin bar or whatever .

The only hard rule at the mo is minimum 3 times stop .

So i'm expecting a low win percentage , that's why the target has to be 3:1 .

So i built a stop and target calculator with the fib extension tool well .

I put a halfway line in ,so when price is half way to target i move to break even .

Anyone know a good trend line ea/indicator, that will buy/sell at the touch of a line ? preferably a free one

I wanna bail the gold trade but I think I will have a hard rule to set and forget.

Oil trade made target , I've made 7 trades total 6 losers and one winner , and my account is already in profit ..

All I need to do is keep my hit rate above 30% and I should be ok ...I think ?
