hi, are you trading a live account? I am currently using a demo with global prime because I heard good things about them but being in the UK would prefer a UK broker for the more convenient candle times. If you're trading live any comments on City Index as a broker?

Hello RH,
Is this a valid setup? Because in H4 and Daily they agree but in weekly they don't agree. Thanks.

Yes I trade a live account. The only thing I would say is that on some of the lesser traded cross currency pairs, the spread becomes a bit too large which tends to put me off trading those currency pairs. Other than that, I've had no problems

{quote} RH - I looked at the buy on the AUDUSD but was put off by resistance at 0.70209. I guess if it breaks through it will really go. What is your philosophy here, make the trade anyway and see where it goes or am I being sensible as an inexperienced trader to see if resistance is broken first? {image}
I don't know whether I am ultimately better off or not, but I NEVER even consider support and resistance lines or areas before entering a trade.

I simply do what the indicators tell me to do. If they are right, then I make money and if they are wrong then I lose some. It's as simple as that.

I don't review the weekly chart before I enter a trade.

NORMALLY, I get my entry signals from the 4 Hr. chart, but I USUALLY look at the Daily chart first.

Then sometimes that 4 Hr. trade I keep and then if or when the Daily chart gives me a trade in the same direction, I keep it and start following it on the Daily chart.

Last H4 Bar open for me was 16:00 Chart time with AxiTrader (Aus).
That was 13:00 GMT and 09:00 NY.

I also don't look at the weekly. So according to 4H and Daily the entry was correct? Thanks.

A simple answer, thank you.

Have had mixed success so far; not the system, more just discipline and missing some good opportunities because of work/family etc. I have come to realise that you just have to keep dipping your toe in, if it turns out to be the wrong time, take a small loss; very soon you will strike the right trade and that will more than cover all the little losses.

Currently my best trade so far and could go further - GBPCAD h4

Thanks for the time you are putting into this RH.

I have mentioned before that I used to create computerized mechanical trading systems and write the code.

16 years ago I moved to another state 500 miles away and not being sure if I would stay there, I put all of my trading stuff in mini storage.

Just recently I finally got the stuff out of storage and I came across the name of my first website (which I had forgotten) that I created back in 2001.

There is a website that catalogs all websites called web.archive.org aka The Wayback Machine which has my old website on it.

I thought some of you might find it interesting reading.

That's true!

Congratulations on a making a really good trade! Lots more will come if you stick with it AND DON'T OVERTHINK THE TRADES, just do what the indicators are telling you to do.

No, what we trade now is not in any way related to those systems.

I was trading commodities and Futures back then, not the Forex.

I am closing all of my trades early because I am having a 4th of July party at my house with about 12 guests for the next 5 days starting today and I won't be able to trade any.
