Hi guys EU H1 R38 several rejection candles. {image}
As we start a new week the new weekly pivot will likely be moving north based on last weeks trend. You would then be looking to trade away from the pivot , which based on the original premise (back to the pivot) may not be the best trade from a probabilities point of view.

Watch this video so you can better understand what Forex is about and why tight stops are for suckers watch the whole thing https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=3t0oIqXe-aU Spikes are created to take your money and fill large orders hence why so many false spikes are there.Having large stops keeps you in the game. Why I prefer larger stops and smaller positions VS large position tight stops which is a recipe for account depletion and eventual bust
Thank u for the video Davit... very infromative...

Here is a tip to new traders Best easiest pairs to trade are commodity pairs against eachother NZD CAD AUD All pretty much stay in range.Rarely go to extremes and often worth holding even if you are in reasonable DD I made shitload of money trading AC NC this year. Once you take USD out of it then main factors are prices of commodities. Oil goes up CAD gets strong, dairy up NZD strong,Iron ore up AUD up in basic terms and rest is technical where they are on the charts. Below monthly chart on AC since 2013 its been in a range.Then you break it to...
I can't wait to try it out this week! Thanks man!

so far this month.My target is 10% a month anything more is gravy.
4% gain so far.While some can make lot more risking lot more I prefer to have a healthy account and stress free trading environment keep building equity in study manner.
There are lots of TE showing 500% 700% gains even higher in 1 week 1 month but how many are around after 6months? after 1year?That's the real story.
One can careless about 100 account by risking everything and making 50 dollars but would it make sense risking 20k account? to make 10k? That would be idiotic so when you see great gains pay attention to account size.Most people care less about anything less then 500 so rolling the dice mentality prevails.
To me that's not impressive.Making study gains is impressive.It shows disciple and determination

Hey Davit,

Many thanks again for all your hard work on this thread. I keep swinging back around and checking things out as I'm intrigued by your methodology. I'm going to fund a small live Oanda acct so I can trade penny lots for practice.

I've noticed you emphasize the 15m and 30 somewhat. That's one thing that has maybe kept me on the sidelines. Don't have much screentime available throughout the day. How much time do you typically spend in front of the screens on a typical trading session.

Thanks again.

I found myself having utilizing much less screen time, as im only looking at 61+ levels. One of the pivots indicators has push alarms when it reaches those key areas.

Hi friend
Trading pivots are location based hence price time to some extend is flexible.I have full time job and I often let trades to run all week.
Lower time frame helps when price approaches key level often you get reaction spikes and 15-30min helps milking those but higher time frames H1-H4 help seeing if the level held or broke.
BY allocating fish net style of trading you can have wider triggers hence capitalizing most time frames that are relevant.Anything less then weekly since pivots are W based.
I think if you happen to get in on great number say example GU at 3050 you could hold longer building trend based trades.This system is flexible both position building or quick swing trading.What I am saying is pivots allow flexible logical trading.Its my road map.
Clean your charts from MA's and start thinking in terms of market makers and how and which direction they are aggregating their positions.I think they often take profit at 61-100 pivots and why price does what it does.MM know what typical retail traders does loaded indicator charts that assumes certain outcome which is false outlook.In basic terms MM goal is to separate you from your money but you must fight back cleverly by reducing lot sizes widening stops and getting in increments this way you are a moving target not static duck with hard SL in place waiting to be taken out.
I trade street smart manner with one eye on pivots another on news fundamentals.
Anyone who says everything is in the chart is clueless.This garbage has been paraded by typical retail trader who is too lazy to read on fundies and often gets overrun on key events.
Hedge funds Market makers positions are 80% based on fundamentals and only 20% on technical.This is established fact and you can Google and read about it.

Its obvious where the trend is heading.Look at the weekly

Note not every trade I take is a winner hence disclaimer should apply automatically.Market can prove anyone wrong. I build positions and to me GU is a bargain now.

Week Ahead Data and Policy

There seems to be a broad consensus on the trajectory of policy in the remaining weeks of the year. Barring a major shock or surprise the Federal Reserve will hike rates next month. The ECB's course is set until at least the middle of next year when the current policy will begin to be debated in earnest.

The BOJ's Kuroda has made it clear that the BOJ will continue to pursue Quantitative and Qualitative Easing (QQE) and Interest Rate Targeting as the inflation target continues to be pushed out in time. The Bank of England and the Bank of Canada previously raised interest rates but left little doubt in investors' minds that there is no urgency to do so again in the coming months.

US interest rates (five years and beyond) bottomed on September 8. The 10-year yield is up 40 basis points since then, as is the 2-year yield. The rise in US yields completely accounts for the 37 bp increase in the two-year premium over Germany, which we find, despite the talk of new divergence, a good guide to the euro-dollar exchange rate. The US 10-year premium over Japan has widened nearly 35 bp over the same period.

The dollar bottomed against the euro, yen, Swiss franc and Canadian dollar on September 8 as well. Sterling is a notable exception. It bottomed at the start of the year. The Australian dollar's low for the year, like sterling, was also set at the very start of the year. The New Zealand dollar by contrast, recorded its low in May and recently retested the level as investors (over?) reacted the change in the New Zealand government and policies, including changing the central bank's remit.

The economic data scheduled for release in the coming days are unlikely to have policy implications. Or, to the extent that the data impacts expectations, it may simply reinforce existing views.

The US data is likely to show an economy recovering from the impact of the storms, and the stability of price pressures somewhat above the troughs seen earlier this year. Both the St. Louis and NY Fed GDP trackers are estimating growth in Q4 at a little more than 3%. While the quarter is nearly half over, and there is much data still to come, the take away is this appears another quarter of above-trend growth.

Headline October CPI may ease on softer gas prices, but the core rate is likely stable at 1.7% for the sixth consecutive month. Frankly, given the base effect, it may be difficult the year-over-year measure to head much higher over the next three months. Headline retail sales soared 1.6% in September as nature (storms), and rising prices conspired to flatter the data. However, a flattish report should be surprising in October. On the other hand, the GDP measure is expected to be a solid 0.3% after a 0.4% rise in September. Industrial output is expected to rise 0.5%, lead by a similar rise in manufacturing.

The UK reports inflation, employment and retail sales in the week ahead. Consumer prices may not have peaked yet in the UK, but they seem close. The quarterly inflation report released earlier this month suggested inflation will move above 3% in October and this will ostensibly lead to a letter from Carney to Hammond to explain. Yet, with a little luck, inflation would have already begun easing by the time the letter must be delivered.

Although the UK enjoys what economists consider full employment, wage growth has failed to keep pace with inflation. Earnings are reported with an extra month lag from the employment data. Earnings growth, excluding bonuses, rose 2.4% in the three months (annualized) in September 2016, and is expected to have risen 2.2% in the three months (annualized) through September 2017. Meanwhile, consumer prices (CPIH) has risen from 1.3% in the year through September 2016 to 2.8% through September 2018.

UK retail sales are expected to have stabilized after sharp falls in September. Excluding auto fuel, retail sales may be flat after a 0.7% decline in September. The year-over-year pace is likely to post its first contraction in 4 1/2 years. It may prove temporary as the base effect will be favorable over the next couple of months. However, the squeeze on household finances may not improve much until the spring.

For the eurozone, investors will get more details about data that have already been reported, like the estimate for Q3 GDP and the flash CPI. The September industrial production data that are new are embedded in the GDP figures. The take away is that the eurozone economy continues to operate a strong pace. The unexpected drop in the core CPI (from 1.1% to 0.9%) may be explained by quirks that do not reflect the general price level, like holiday packages, and some administered prices.

Japan reports its first estimate of Q3 GDP. After a robust Q2 (2.5% annualized) the Japanese economy appears to have slowed considerably. However, the 1.5% median forecast in the Bloomberg survey would still be well above trend growth. The risk may be on the downside, with consumption and housing being a drag, partly blunted by export growth. Of note, the GDP deflator may turn positive, albeit barely, for the first time since Q2 2016.

There are three political issues, which will likely shape the investment climate. The most important is US tax reform. Optimists still think a vote by both houses can be held by the middle of next month, ahead of the winter recess. We are skeptical, and the point we have made that is worth repeating is that, like health care reform, the key debate is not between the two main parties, but within the Republican Party.

Despite months of leaders of both houses working with the Trump Administration, the bills are dramatically different on several key issues and note that the scoring still places the evolving House version more than the agreed-upon $1.5 trillion addition deficit over the next ten years. There are also conflicting incentives for House Republicans, who will face voters next year, that herald from states that Trump lost in 2016. It appears that prospects of fiscal reform a remote.

In Europe, the negotiations over the UK's exit from the EU continue to be an important talking point. New wrinkles appear to have emerged, including the Irish border, that seems as intractable as any challenge of the divorce/amputation. There is speculation that Prime Minister May will shortly make a more detailed commitment of the sums the UK will pay to fulfill its obligations. This is in the hope that next month, the negotiations can turn to the post-separation relationship. It is by no means a done deal, and there is a certain pessimism that seems to be growing.

Lastly, we note the apparent progress in the formation of the next German government. It appears that the Merkel may soon concede the coveted finance ministry portfolio to its new coalition partner (likely the FDP). However, Merkel may strip the international (e.g., Europe) responsibilities from it and transfer them to the Economic Ministry. The Finance Minister's remit would cover the domestic economy. The Economic Minister would attend the Eurogroup and G7 meetings, for example. Such considerations may be important as investors attempt to assess the policy implications of the new coalition government.

Do you mind providing some insight on the pivot indicator you are using with alerts? Everyone I've tried doesn't have time offset adjustments and the levels are off by quite a bit.

Hi Davit,

Great looking equity curve you posted here. I'm not quite sure I understand it correctly though as I hardly ever look at my own one....I just look at the money like a true capitalist!!

Your figures under the graph show 36 Short Positions won (100%) and 44 Long Positions won (100%) = 80 trades (100%). The numbers under the graph (167) represent the number of trades don't they? Shouldn't that then read 80....not 167?

Also, if you look at the red circles I have placed on your graph, you can see that the equity curve dips down there. That represents a loss doesn't it? Wouldn't 100% win rate be a steady climb up the graph from bottom left to top right?

Shouldn't the Profit Factor be shown there too?

As I said, I don't look at equity curves much so I probably am missing something here. Sorry if I sound like a muppet!

Not sure why, there will be some difference between brokers but should be fairly close.
