I'm not dead yet in forex. This week I set an entry where resistance should be in a perfect world and i set the stop wide up above additinoal resistance, and a target way down where the best case target would be. I didn't look again at it for a while, then when i checked on it there was a 13pip gain and it was sitting on a 2x pivot and momentum had slowed and started looking like it would bounce, so i exited it there. It did bounce. Weirdest textbook trade ever. I have to get to another PC to get the slide then post it from there.

In futures I had my best trade/day/week/month in 2 years last week end of Jan. This week I had my worst day/week/month so far in 3 years.

Ouch. Lesson for me is risk management. I'd like to explain it, but it needs my P&L chart to do so. Need to get it from my trading PC that I don't allow internet services like browsing besides the data for platform....coming soon.

The trading in TF lately has been too easy. I've never seen such follow thru in any other market. Giving me best personal trading stats ever.

I still scalp and advance my stops and try to give a little room to run, but mostly still get stopped, but the stop gain is a decent scalp.

I wonder if yesterday's high of 1180.3 or so will be surpassed...
