2nd on the pause, 9892 and it's going higher, SL 9902 hoping for a 9900 rejection.


The pause on my mid line, looked like a up move was likely, nearly took +2 and switched.

Downtrend for 40pips would so make my day

Missed 20 on GA too, DAX focused!


Vague uptrend forming on DAX, damn its SLOW, turned at +0.5%, no 1 is sticking there kneck out and buying when it's extended in short, just scalping it snooooozeeeeee!!!


-0.5 if it's holding and I take it, gets me +6 for risking 16 ideal err NO!!!

Thought that would happen sooner or later, never hold a short position in a uptrend doh!!

SL closed at 99 +2 so -13 -7 = -20 = -14 on the day!!

Didnt get to a price I was happy to exit or reverse, had a TP in 9888 for +2 didn't fill 1 pip off LOL

Perfect stall and retreat to low 0.5% and back up again on trend, the stall was perfect at +1% aswell.

Looking like it just hit the +1% and stalled aswell, although to early to tell, might reverse.

yep stall at +1% called by my envelope


Can't win them all

So you can see the 0.1% Envelope rejecting price, here it is, that last pull back to the lower dotted white lines woulda called a 20pip spike, to 0.15% perfectly. in like 3 mins.


You don't trade the tops of the envelopes against the trend ( maybe 0.15% level ) you exit near there and repeat.

Tis a good plan, works consistently, but not always


GA turned DOWN shoulda shorted under the 1.8100 for +25 here!!


GET HEAD in the game!!

School run

School run cost me dear I see another pull back and move up as predicted.

If I only play with similar trend I will never make enough, there was many chop trades before this trade which worked fine.
