Hello futures.io (formerly BMT).

I lurk mostly at FF but found a few interesting threads here & figured I'd combo my intro post into a two week live journal. I'm planning to move over to IB in order to incorporate futs & stocks into my fx trading...I'm sure I'll have questions for some of the futures.io (formerly BMT) members in the near future.

I'll record my trading 14-Oct through 26-Oct, simple retests of broke S&R on the daily, 4hr & 1hr is what I look for nearly exclusively.

I've been trading live for five years, almost exclusively S&R in one form or another. As of late, ran into a 15% draw down June - August, pulled the account back to new highs in early September, only to relapse into draw down later that month. Heavy resistance at account highs, looking to bust this level by COB 2012.

Live trader pushing a mid 5 digit account, Oanda w/MT4 charting, trading around ~70+hr work week, spotty net connection & constant travel. Cheers

I missed my call alert on this one last week...prime example of what I'm looking for in a perfect world.

The chart below shows the pre-trade setup, as posted in my Sunday outlook.



And the result.
