Taking a shot at the EURUSD breaking this range to the downside. Tight stop on this one. It's only gone about half its average weekly range thus far this week so I'm hoping to catch a nice move {image}
And I say . . .

Long on AUDUSD. Again...this pair has gone half its ATR for the week so let's see if we get some follow through. Overall price action we've created a new higher swing low so we could be on the way up to a new higher high and the start of an up trend.

Who cares about pips.

I care about money.

If the stop was 100 pips for 1R then what does it matter? Pips are irrelevant in terms of profitability. I’m in profit this month yet negative in pips.

Good job on controlling the losses

It feels silly to call losses a good job but it is what it is. We continue with strategy as planned and look to play out the long term edge.

I think I am going to switch brokers to OANDA and use tradingview platform so I can access both from home and at work. That should let me manage my losses even more carefully and would allow me to trade all candles that I am awake for.

Remoting into MT4 on my PC at home is an option but a clunky one at best.

Better to trade in the direction of all the trends you are awake for.
