No trades for me yet. Waiting for the right moment to shoot.

Hi Massive, are you swing trading or intraday trading? Which currencies are you watching?

Please compare with post #3 of this thread

The target was met. Please compare to #3 of this thread.

Fibonacci Retracements and Expansions work particularly well with FOREX and currency futures.

The pattern is a variation of the crab pattern.

I only make a couple of trades per week. I do mostly intraday.
If I do hold it's never for more than 1 week and most of the time 2-3 days.
I will trade any of the currencies if they meet my criteria.
I also like trading ZN and every once in a while ES although
I mostly forecast.

Right on, Fat Tails. I agree. I've used fibonacci before and they do seem to be self fulfilling because
a lot of traders use them.

Did you trade this one or were you just forecasting/target scoping?

Accumulation from Friday in /ES proved to be in play today for anyone flipping long.
I'll have to take another look at price and volume later and reassess.

No, I did not trade it, I just made a comment on the first chart.

Harmonic patterns and expansions work quite well in FOREX, as they are used by many FOREX traders, so I made an educated guess, where price was headed for. The target, which was the 127.2% expansion in confluence with other lines was hit one day later.

That's pretty sweet. I dig it man.
I'm always learning so I thank you again for the market perception.

I'll have to look into harmonic patterns!

Good stuff Ichi. Now I got two threads of yours to watch .

Do you find volume analysis any less powerful for Forex futures coz of the popular Spot market?

Hey Bermudan! Same with you. Hope you're doing well.

I see that you're in the green.

You can see the volume profile in action with spot using 'last' instead of 'bid'.
It's pretty much the same IMO.

Don't mind the crazy colors. This chart is whack but here's a look at E/U 10 min.

I like this trade, not because you didn't make a killing but it shows me you're a good trader. You have good entry, good management, and the most important...good instincts. Thanks for sharing.
