{quote} Sitting at 12941 with a low 12936 just now. I didn't see any of it. Potential to take a long position off the second low bar but there was too much room to go in on the original drop.

Thx, amazing I caught big runs two days running.... Final totals through NY, EJ +161, EG +75, AU +75 I will leave them go with a 50 trailer on the EJ and 20's on the other two, and see where it locks in without having to watch it

Here is a look at where I caught the EJ on the ride down about 12 hours ago. My initial stop off that high was 134.52. I moved the stop from there to a 50 trailer because it made a very sharp move down 4 hours in and let it sit at that all the way down to 132.65

Good luck matey!!
Shoulder line on usd euro is broken. If it goes down, it'll be a killer move of another 200 points.. my watch point is close below 500.. unlikely today though..

What a nightmare taming the beast.. used to do scalp years back. Had to cut with loss of 30 points and went long to recover sacrificing my sleep.. that's done now..eu still holding. Will makeup my mind around 15800... will switch back to investor mode and play with puts and options only

There's potential to scalp this morning (not including my normal a.m. trades) as there's a double-top formed on the H1 after a long drag uphill.

EDIT: It's also giving a 1-2-3 set-up in the next hour.

Indeed you are right.. knowing dax it'll probably deceive as usual.. let's see.. my gauge is eu.. break of h&s on daily is deadly..this is the area for big players to make money and brokers to get rid of dead weight and stops!! Wouldn't be surprised with more erratic moves

Meanwhile, my Brent / US Crude Diff market gave a classic set-up on the morning Open...

Short EG +5 locked on the second entry. The first entry I got stopped at -8. Not sure how as I waited for the new high to be set before getting in. Did not move my stop up to that high though and guess I got taken out on a move up. First loss ever... . Second entry this hour worked better even for a Friday.
