Brian,
Looks like you normally focus on break out trades, of course they will suffer on inside days, so it all makes sense.



True enough, but I've been trading it on break out days as well and it works just as well there....

I've added 4 more pairs to my forex trading. The forex trading is going pretty well, enough so that I think I may begin to feed some money into it slowly and perhaps begin to trade all five pairs. The trades are lasting anywhere from 3 days to a month with losers in the 30-70 pip range and winners in the 150-300 pip range with scale in ability so the winner is MUCH larger than the loser.

I LOVE the ability to size properly. It allows me to take trades and place stops that I would have never been able to take otherwise....and then scale in as it progresses. And I like that the trades take so long to develop and to play out. Its much less stressful than day trading.

I wish I had done this from the beginning. I'd still day trade because I like it but the forex swing trading has tons of potential but more important, it requires patience and discipline to wait for the set ups....much more than day trading. The difference I am trading 4 hour charts instead of 5 minute charts or even tick charts. Its like comparing apples and oranges. Its just much easier.

Some facts


Looks like CL is going to sleep again...or just resting before a huge breakout...who knows.

I like your progression very much, Brian. I look for the same in forex - long term trades with the trend. But currently EURJPY is very overbought and due for correction. Long term I want to long gold versus the yen.

No trades for me today

I let the slow price action lull me into kinda of a no action kind of attitude...and then it fell out of bed without me....and no chasing allowed. Classic mistake.

I did trade NQ on sim again today. I am killing it there....maybe add that to my repertoire in the future. Who knows.

The 5M chart was NOT speaking to me and the 800T chart had nothing I liked without large risk, so I just sat there the entire time. I have not had a session in a long time with no trades....there have been days I didn't trade or my session was cut short with no trades but one in which I sat the entire time and watched without trading is quite rare.

On the NQ trade, once again, no trade management seems to be the best course of action.

Good trade, Brian, similar to my entry style.

Missed opportunity today...well not missed, cut short. I try not to make this mistake but it seems its the achilles heel. Getting nervous once price goes my way for a bit. I kill it on the first little pull back knowing full well its just a pull back and to hold on.....Anyway it went exactly to my target on the 5M chart.....bugger....

Regardless, I am once again becoming more and more comfortable with the naked 5M chart and just using levels to enter at instead of the confirmation I normally required.

Still have 2 more finals to study for so short and sweet today.

Great work Brian. It's great to see you having so much success with the naked chart. You're a true inspiration, for this to is my goal for the future.

Thank you for posting,

Rick

That CL pattern is magnificent, well recognised. Almost as good as this

PNF Rocks!

Where is the 45 degree trendline? I thought PNF relied on those 45s pretty heavily?
