Back home reviewing DAX, I'll tally up all the places where trades woulda worked with a "p" and would lost with a "L" I generally lose bigger hence the Capital.

ppppppppppLppppLpp?pp

I think the p's have it.

My Loser was a downtrend +0.05% entry ( Or chop ), unfortunately it turned to uptrend and took out my tight ish SL badly.

Wishing it would of filled the +2, just 1 pip lower mondays!!

Just nuts, around today and I will admit the balls to hold on and I'd likely be up 200pips today, that would be a great confidence booster.

Called out, no new trades wuss sing it not wanting to return my earlier profit, maybe later.


I nearly took DAX long just before my trade, hesitated missed my entry, moving off a base so uptrend was expected and worked well.


Looking like I will be ready next month to start hitting my targets, screw the business 19years of hell, time for a change

A quick +6 on DAX, 9929 to 9935 snooze fest at this time.


Tight range I see on DAX all day after it's good move, which I nearly took. I'd of been bored, so likely best I worked



GA wise, coulda played the range, never easy live though, 1.8120 - 1.8150, 2 seconds longer and I've of had a 2nd lower postion for +40 area but hey!!


+40 today. allowing for work costs that's approx 5x's what I earned, time to sack it

I should of stayed in and not slacked, DAX and GA trended nicely, worth a fair few pips to, after that news.


Buy the pull backs to the lower dotted Envelope line, run the SL under the Blue line, get a 2nd position near the solid white line if needs be, that's how I define a pull back with trend.

To be honest, if the white line fails ( not the middle line ), pretty much game over, but it's only a few more pips and if taking a 2nd position near then it'll need some room for error.

Just getting the balls to trust and take it and repeat, even if the trend stopped, odds are it'll chop to highs getting you out at a profit although smaller.


Simplest method EVER!!

Work and meetings tomorrow, will have Pad with me just incase I see something, but it's all generally high stress running around like crazy at this client so unlikely to after school time, but shall try.


Friday so far is ear marked for trading which is likely bad cause odds are Fridays will be SLOW!


In profit this week atleast only +21 ( ?? ) so a long way short of my +120 target but hey it'll do this week.
