DislikedA truly remarkable day. Massively out of synch with the market. Blew up demo account. On a positive note, I made 7% on real money account with 30/30 Ops in profit. I started on it only after the rise from the low that got the demo in trouble and held tight without over leveraging through all the ensuing up and down. From here, I think it's down to 1.21 but I ain't betting real money on it. PS. Check out the triple higher highs yesterday and today. That, plus I don't recognize the low as a reversal point. Hence, down to 1.21 about. PPS. That said,...Ignored
09:48 Server Time. 1.21 - 1.207 should be buy area
09:54 ST 1.2135 started increasing short on my formerly blown up, overnight recovered, demo account. It can reasonably go up to 1.2157. I plan to sell all the way to there (if it gets there). Like climbing a mountain
10:32 ST 1.2135 blown. Going up to next zone. Carrying my short wherever it takes me ...with the help of some long hedging, this time.
11:01 ST. I built the long on the way down from the violation of 1.2135. Took out the short increments in profit and am now net long (underwater with price 1.2132). ...So deep that down retr. from the up break-out of 1.2135... Sometimes they make it such that the retr. is more worthwhile than the trendwise. The long hedge has become a net long. I have to stick with it.
11:23 ST. It got messy with my demo. Long oversized. Yet the low 1.2127 prob. not end of the down retr. Hedged short as it went back up. Expecting new push down [to go net long], otherwise I'll have to wait for a high [email protected] to get net short. In the meantime, limit buy 1.212 with real money.
11:31 ST. Close to fully hedged 1.2135 Waiting for 1.212 to go long or 1.2157 to go short, by closing the opposite position.
11:55 ST. From current 1.2135 I think today it's going to go both higher 1.2157 and lower, 1.212 I'll try to close all ops in profit. Now I'm 47/47 in profit. 32 positions running.
15:20 ST. No sign of reaction upon 1.212... Are they going to pull a sneaky down impulse?
15:40 ST. I had reversed short before the down impulse!! Demo account is up 620% from yesterday's low when I declared it lost. Real money up 1%
16:08 ST I'm short for a return to 1.21 about.
16:21 ST Real money up 2.3% and out. Demo is up 900% from yesterday's equity low with 107/107 ops in profit. My out is
16:26 ST TRIUMPH All out and flat. Demo up 975% with 118/118 ops in profit. Real +2.3% 5/5 in profit.
18:18 ST Long on both demo and real 1.2073 for a return to 1.211
22:59 ST Real up 2.8% 8/8 leaving a long overnight. Demo, looks like a round +1000% since yesterday's equity low will elude me; up 992% 125/125 ops closed in profit. One hour to end of day rollover. ...end of day. Missed the 1000%
