The Seven Dwarves pay tribute to Al Brooks...



We scalp ticks ticks ticks ticks ticks ticks ticks on the screen the whole day through
To scalp ticks ticks ticks ticks ticks ticks ticks is what we like to do

It ain't no trick
To get rich quick
If you scalp ticks ticks ticks
With a five-minute chart
On the screen
On the screen

Where a million candles
Shine.......

We scalp ticks ticks ticks ticks ticks ticks ticks from early morn to night
To watch ticks ticks ticks ticks ticks ticks ticks until the moment is right

We watch micro breakouts
By the score
A thousand candles
Sometimes more
We look for momentum to get on board
We scalp ticks ticks ticks

(musical intro)

Higher low!
Higher low!
Higher low! Higher low! Higher low!

Higher low, Higher low
It's off to trade we go
(whistles)
Higher low, Higher low, Higher low

Higher high, Higher high
It's time for us to buy
(whistles)
Higher high, Higher high
(more whistles)

OK, I'll get my coat.....

Trading is a challenge; so is this brain test.

Big Mike, Congratulations on your 1st anniversary. As a novice to your site, I sure would love to learn more about the bar charts... Likely this is a sure thing to make some additional successful trades on any trade.
Test Your Brain
This is really cool.



ALZHEIMERS' EYE TEST





Count every " F " in the following text:

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTI
FIC STUDY COMBINED WITH
THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS...

(SEE BELOW)




HOW MANY ?









WRONG, THERE ARE
6 -- no joke.
READ IT AGAIN !
Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 F's before you scroll down.


The reasoning behind is further down.








The brain cannot process "OF".




Incredible, or what? Go back and look again!!



Anyone who counts all 6 "F's" on the first go is a genius.





Three is normal, four is quite rare.

Send this to your friends.
It will drive them crazy.!
And keep them occupied
For several minutes..!

Simplicity is not easy. The "KISS" principle works only for those who embrace it and for the markets, understanding price is "KISS"! It's funny how we all use price for entries, exits, profits, losses but depend on "other stuff" to tell us what to do - why not depend on price itself to tell us what to do? Sure, we need to put in some work and move away from our comfort zone!

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)
