Out +7 on DAX I'm awesome

Okay not really had 4 positions from 22 to 7 sl at 98, basically a stupid counter trend trade I let run away, when I had 2 positions I should took the be exit and flipped short doh! Fridays!


Exit at 16 downtrend mid sma was perfect at least, should shorted there.



Holding on too tight, tired and emotional should take the day off, nearly lost 67 pips to make 7

Just under account new highs, gambling and trading bady to push new highs rather than take my 24 loss I'd of had rather than moving basal and buying MORE!

Slaps own face

Nice 2nd wave up, woulda been +40 area up there, that woulda made my entire week!!

I got to +3 over my account all time high, but last closed trade pushed it to -2 LOL


Been sideways for nearing 2 months, account needs some high highs and some higher low's.


The issue is I'm not making enough trades to get in many good trades ( Wednesdays +34 for instance ), trading at the wrong time, which I'm aware of which sadly match with kids school run times, but only 1 more week to go.

Also not holding long enough, as playing chop only, need to play trade and hold longer than 2mins to get he risk to reward ratio worth it

How long have I been on kids both school runs ? ohhh yes 2 months, coincidence not likely.


Why does the chart of my account, scream SHORT

Price improvement from a previous account much smaller, was worth 3 pips, just transfered it to my account, counts right

Better I have it than FXCM have to give it away to the FCA!

Nearly went DAX long 10011 but errrm, responded to a post on here and yeah

It's a pizza

Shoulda kept trading, setup for a perfect short, retested the 10,000 bounced for 13 area, setup short again and 30+ pips on that nice move, I'd of gotten 20pips I'd hope, maybe another short entry to.


Score on the week +35pips yeah okay it's not great, nearly blew through 2x's that earlier in 1 trade, but it's half a wage and total time trading likely goes to 4 - 5 hours so the potential is there, need some longer holds and bigger pips Risk / Reward wise, SL hits are taking away too many profitable trades at the moment.


1 more week, to get head into the game, got some more work coming in, so might extend my cash flow out to end of September, or maybe reduce to half a wage end of August!


Not a down week

Quick review, only 1 losing position last week, other than that most entries where pretty good, guess my little go no where trades covered the 1 SL hit and my 1 lucky runner actually made my profit.

So still got work to do, to get back to the $$$ making machine of Feb / March, adapted to new market conditions, just need time and confidence to trade it ( hopefully it doesn't change to soon, cause back to drawing board LOL )

Method, is impressively accurate on DAX and pretty good on GA, I see no reason for tweaking it anytime soon.

Being :-

24sma HLC/3
Envelope 24sma HLC/3 0.05% 0.1% 0.15%
60SMA HLC/3
300SMA HLC/3

Simple as.

This next week, need to book some hours to be honest so not a lot of trading I'd bet
