@Turveyd


Yes few losers and none on Friday. Friday was 4 for 4 $$$$

I was only one contract on Friday and for most of Thursday

I think on Thursday I legged into two at one point and then legged out so that
had NT show a loser when the net was a winner, (I think!!).

Anyways, I decided after Thursday to stay with one contract - all of Friday is one only
and that way my testing can be better.

Friday was really the first day, and it could have been a lot better as my picture showed.

See how I can do with one full week - next week.

Cool, remember, try to go with the direction of the 100, if the 100ema is going down, then the direction should remain until the first envelope above the 100 is broken, so SL above that envelope, no point going out till the 2nd in this case.

Then use the faster 26 to time smaller faster ranges within.

I think, hell I'm still trying to get it all figured out to LOL

Rules
1. Go with the direction of the 100,
2. If the 100ema is going down, the first envelope above the 100 is the stop loss.
3. Use the faster 26 to time smaller moves the inner 100 envelope,

"no point going out till the 2nd in this case." - does this mean no point exiting the trade until the 2nd lower 26?

No the second Envelope, no point running a SL out that far, if it takes out the inner envelope the 100ema will head that way and your definately ( as you can be ) counter trend.


I do take counter trends, near the outter 100 envelope, but only after a nice pause and generally don't hold them for more than a few pips.


Just scroll back and see how it generally not always ofcourse interacts, best on DAX then YM I guess.

Additional, with a chart with numbers on! The white lines are my approx SL level.


1. uptrend in, long on pull back and fail, trend changed, the move to that level likely means sellers market.
2. Counter trend trade, sticks around this level for a bit, SL under the next 00 generally ie 10pips ish.
3. Stalled and top of inner 26sma Envelope, doesn't go far.
4. Likely a 2nd position to no.3, SL moved out to above white dashes.
5. counter trend play, likely to fast to spot / take.
6. That area, 50's holding top of 26 dashes.
7. exit point for 6, counter trend trade, SL under the lower white dots.
8. Short doesn't go far. maybe move SL up for 9
9. additional position to 8, SL close
10. shorting near the yellow dash
11. same really
12. same really, but if I fell alseep it went 120pips WOWSA ( I'd be out wayyyy before )


Hope that makes some sense.



Where the SL is tight, I can and likely will double the lot size
