GM traders,

This morning I have taken 2 trades. the 1st one had the trailing stop hit for +2, then a re entry just a couple of bars later for my 21 as you will see on these charts

Attachment 41953 Attachment 41954

Fell free to post any questions regarding the setups that I trade. I will be done trading for the day/week as of now.

Stats for the week produced +150 ticks, thanks to yesterday

I hope you all have a good weekend

Charles

How many trades did you end up taking this week? The few times I looked here this week, there were several days with no trades, so I thought anyway. Did I miss a really good day?

You are asking some excellent questions monpere, he told me this earlier today:

There were 5 trades yesterday (Thursday) all 21 ticks

4 in the morning and then 1 in the afternoon when some news came out on Greece that reversed the trend


So yes you missed a good day

Why not just post the info needed?

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Charles-

First a big thank you for taking the time to share details of your strategy and answer questions about it over the last several weeks.

In an effort to make sure that I have the correct understanding of some of the mechanics of your entry and stop placement, I've marked up a chart from your Friday trades. Would you mind taking a look and confirming that I've got the correct interpretation?

Much appreciated-

JJ
