{quote} Yes, very good Zen. I am running 6 pair at 0:00 and 4 pair at 8:00 now. For me it is more time convenience. As the 0:00 time zone is downtime before the Asian open and 8:00 I have many more things to attend to. The thing I like about this method is it is simple and not time consuming like others.
Please can you give an update on your trades that starts at 0:00?

Hi zentrader8,
this indi should do the job for you.
Can you please explain if you use the indi to help your trading and how?
Also does the MA serve any purpose?

Cheers.

thanks kazaa

i use the indi to see and backtest the trade, because i want to test the trade without deleting the pending buystop/ sellstop,
so everyday i set the buystop and sellstop at 8.00 high /low + and - 100.
and wait it until it triggered.

Yep.

Dear Zentrader8,

I read all your post and reply on this thread, i do love your strategy, but i still not clear about pending order:

1- example we set pending order 100pips from high or low, then the market hit our sellstop, so should we delete our buystop at opposite direction?
2- Everyday should we set buystop and sellstop from high and low of 8:00am candle ? while our yesterday entry positions still opening ?
3- example our sellstop hit, but market revers to uptrend, so when could we close trade ?

Thanks,

Loka009

1.Yes, the original method is delete the trade if it is not hit, but right now im testing a same method without deleting the pending orders, so we need to wait until it triggered, so we play based on area. if the pending order didnt hit for 2 months we delete the trade.
2.yes,
3. yes. the original method didnt use stoploss, but the new method i use 100 sl with 100 tp.
