I don't know about that situation you said last time, because trading the institutions own money and market making is different. What you said would be market making, taking the spread + commission and processing the large corporations order. But if ...

Odines is right. That's why I tried to explain in September, that if you try to do both Wyckoff and VSA, you'll get confused. What is called a gotcha bar down in VSA, Wyckoff called that a sign of weakness. In VSA an upbar on high volume is a sign ...

For the daily charts, he draw candles like this. For intraday reading the tape like this. I don't know about the history of the terms, but Wyckoff only talkes about only a couple of them, most of them were added later probably. He mentions ...

I wonder what this spike is from Pepperstone. Okay, it happened at rollover, some spike is understandable, but 40 pips? This is from a different forex broker called OneTrade, spike is much smaller: And this is from a futures broker, no spike here:

The trend is your best friend in the markets. One of the greatest edge for a retail trader. Yet almost nobody can trade a trend. At least I can't remember an occasion on this forum, when I saw somebody being able to trade with the trend properly. ...

Not always. 1. When they lose, they lose better. Closing losses early, letting winners run, that's why they are pros. 2. They have access to an order book, they can see everything what other professionals and the public is doing without actually ...

If you trade M5/M15/M30/H1 timeframes and you are at the moment of the red vertical line, there is no way for you to tell that an H4/D1 supply train will come in hard, and that the marked area is not reaccumulation. Yeah, it is a bigger upthrust, ...

Hey TEB, just a quick question. How do you stand not tinkering with the trade after you are in BE and already defined your TP? Like this is my EJ trade from today: My TP (orange line) was the next logical stopping point, there was a reaction there ...

Talking about clean setups. SP500 needs only a wide spread down bar on the right side of the trading range to confirm distribution (FOMC is likely going to give us that....maybe with an upthrust before that though), then a retest on no demand to the ...

What a boring day. Today's trade:

EN was the chosen one for me:

Another day, another loss. Yeah GCAD was bound to ranging after such a fall, but VZA said sell, so I sold. ND closed just outside, stop was 86 pips away. Sell stop takes me in, then goes for the stop. At the moment I achieve less than 50% winrate. ...

My first trade this week, I couldn't trade Monday-Wednesday because of school. Too bad it turned out as a loser, the ND was very clean, touching the zone low and closing back below it, just as I want to see these types of trades. Stop was around the ...
- Darastonius replied Jan 12, 2016
I took the ND below the zone printed by the pin bar on Gold. It is also a nice support level. Stop is middle way between the 50 fib and the small resistance above. Let's see!
- Darastonius replied Jan 11, 2016
Any tips on why did I get run and why the zone failed? I'm in this aswell, I wonder if this will fail too...

This is how a painful miss looks like, I was monitoring this pair, but missed the entry:
- Darastonius replied Jan 4, 2016
We were eyeing EA with Rinehart aswell, I'd say euro in general will fall tomorrow, or the day after. Also check out GA, rolling over on no demand, GN, massive upthrust, Oil had a big UT too and can fall further, and gold had one aswell, though the ...
- Darastonius replied Dec 22, 2015
Took a quick one on GA, target was 1:1 RR. Break of the previous support, wait for a retest/an ND/both then enter.
- Darastonius replied Dec 17, 2015
Missed this one, it is still going. Or is it a problem that price was grinding around the NS, making it invalid from a VZA standpoint?
- Darastonius replied Dec 17, 2015
Quick EA HVC trade in the morning, I went for 1:1 RR only.
