To be honest most all trades I have taken so far have been in draw down right after I enter trade . Iím thinking I should almost set a pending order like 15-20 pips in opposite direction so it makes it automated and if it triggers great if not price runs away and forget about it
That's WHY I usually drop down to the 5 min. chart after I get the entry signal on the 4 hr. chart, so I can fine tune the entry.

On my trades today, I was just trying to get into a large basket of trades quickly so I didn't do it...but I should have.

not saying you did this in anyway Bluejay.. but for any new traders out there just a little bit of advice.. I saw RH post all of his trades as well i straight away got onto the charts and started to place some trades as RH started all this and gave us this awesome system it must be right right ?

Then something clicked inside my head saying was this your trading plan or someone else's ? i then took all orders off the table and checked all my charts and place a few order according to my plan.. Always trade you own plan guys... It was so tempting to jump on RH'S trades..

Thanks again RH for this fantastic thread. I am really enjoying it and finding it immensely valuable.
I may be completely wrong, but it seems to me that the latest indicators generate buy and sell signals a few bars later
than the original ones, particularly if you wait for a green or red vertical line. Are you perhaps intentionally
giving up some pips in return for greater certainty i.e. less potential risk or have I misunderstood the trade entry requirements.

If the trend HMA (Hull moving average) is on the chart anyway (following price candles).
Where is the extra value in having it also integrated as part of the oscillator?
If you wanna see whether it is up or down/or which colour it has, you could just look at the MA (as it is already there).
I'd just like to understand it, no offence etc.

{quote} Yes Dad. Got another one on there now
That was too late in the day for me. Volatility goes way down when US market closes. I would probably have to hold overnight and pay swap, which is not worth it with small profit targets. Even if I had made an m1 entry with 5 pips TP, it is likely even that would not have been hit, and I would have to either manage the drawdown or exit with a loss.

Or go the other direction and just remove HMA from the price window.

Some folks like to see the forest, others like to see the trees. And then the special guys that are in the forest checking the trees, but also with a drone overhead giving them a view of the forest at the same time.

Yes. They were harvested by someone else--like taking candy from a baby.

I am wondering if this is a shenangian here ...
I've been doing this strategy for a while already and I get mroe losses than wins
I am applying the trades 100% correctly
Even those trades posted to RH earlier sucked
I don't see anyone having a real proof that is profitable on long-term, they are just posing a few trades here and there and bragging about this strategy, but absolutely noone is showing a real account statement that proves they are being profitable for more than 6-12 months

RH posted earlier
two losers in 10 looks pretty good to me. I would be happy with that. I did notice on the RH 15 trade picture the TMMS not the right colour for pushing the button on some of those. On our trades we are waiting for the TMMS candle close the right colour and maybe a bit late. The candle before and we might have breakeven before the loss.

Clearly, you have no understanding of the basic statistics that underlie how this becomes a long-term winning system. But in any case, if you have doubts, it is easy for you to just move on in your search for the Holy Grail of trading.

to take each and every one will never work out because many signals that are produced are dead ends (occuring when price turns around)
Have a look at the produced entry signals in Post 2926, for example. Had you taken all oft those you'd have lost a lot of money.
Before entering you need to know which direction to trade...
and then there's ranges
and then there's news
and then there's round numbers
and then there's the SL that is too close (stopped out)
and then there's the TP that is too far away (price turns around before TP is hit)
etc
