  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

привет! I'm back from resting my brain. I really needed it.

I have noticed this from looking at COT charts:
1) Large Speculators try to follow the market trend exactly. (Easy to see on Euro Chart)
2) Commercials move exact opposite of the Large Speculators.
3) Crude Oil, Corn and even Euro, the small speculators are in the middle in between Large speculators and Commercials.
4) On Canadian Dollar and the Swiss Franc the Large and Small speculators are moving together.

That is why you must understand each party of the market. The motivation of each of them. Those who took profits then you was short. They are was speculators scalpers of small timeframe. And they are profesionals too. Why they took profits? Answer lies in motivation and how they see market.
In general and in a big TF euro is going down. It need to test important levels of support to find byers who will pull it higher, because sellers want theirs profits and will became less and less agressive with each movement down.
Before you start to learn COT you need to learn how to jump in the right moment using a tape, how to jump with a minimal risk. COT is a next step. Do not hurry.
May be you will not need COT at all)))
Euro FX. I do not like thin instruments so Dollar index is more likely. But there is levels for your battle)))

They taking profits because the up move is over. Look what happened next day.

Hey man, give yourself a break once and a while. You trying to save up for a Lamborghini or something?(joking)

Here is the deal. Today you look tape at this prices. You record a video or taking notes there, and then write a post on this topic with your observations on euro.
1) big prints
2) dynamics
3) limit orders on ask and on bid and size of them
4) result
this is 4 moments of your observations))) that will be very interesting)))

This is the chart you gave me. The highest level is at 1.4220. When I start at 7am central, price was already above there and went up... If you tell me how you made the levels I could of put more higher. I think you just mark the highs on the daily chart for above current market price. And below current market price you mark the daily lows and try to get at least 2 daily lows at same price.
