Have a good one! I really enjoy reading this thread, keep doing it

I want to say thank you because I got inspired by you and this thread and I retook some strategies I had made in the past remaking these to keep it more simple but using wide stops. I realized that I used bad money management on these ones trying to keep stops too tight and hoping for homeruns (and trying to add to "variables" to the entry). I'm not talking about average down but maybe I played it too scared. Maybe I must open another thread to discuss this, but I met with good traders that are REALLY making money and everybody that's really profitable (and for long time) use wide stops like you do (or even go without stops just mental stops). My problem is that trading 6E I don't feel comfortable doing this, is too big psychologically. I'll keep doing it on forex until I'm really comfortable, I don't care about the money anymore, I just want to do the right things, reading price action is cool too and enjoyable but I want to improve in both directions, I have a strong mechanical/automated background. That's why I love your thread, you really mix both sides really well, you have a mechanical system but use trendlines and other things, not 100% automatic.

I vote @redratsal

Thanks for your kind words, I strongly beleive in open sources, they can only improve the idea and/or the product. This is an open thread where anybody can contribute or personalize it according to his/her trading style. There are no secrects to be kept in trading, everyone has to search for his/her own inspiration, and must not be afraid of beeing a contrarian by doing the opposite of what is considered a dogma.

Haha, that's why I appreciate you started this thread, sharing exactly how your strategy is, without hiding anything, I don't feel comfortable doing that, am I a bad person?
