Time is running out, 2small contracts in the balance and a medium 1 looking to disappear soon.


DAX had 2.good days last week, momentum and easy takings so far this week just dead can't realistically expect to make a wage off this, too much slow time, even the chop isn't enough to bother with.

Gbpaud good trend down day, envelope settings need to be tighter, not had time to watch that so far today


Gold similar to gbpaud today.

Time is running out, account needs to start going up fast again real soon, stress we'll yeah.

Well played the chop range and got well statistical probability, about time 1 went my way, I was expecting 6pips tops so

After that we had 3 higher highs the 10,000 got supported and UP she went to slightly new highs, basis of my method definately has merit, these slow days will either make me gambly or so bored I stop watching then miss the good moves which are pretty in frequent.

NEED so good 100pip uptrend days, jump on the trend, take profit and repeat on pull backs 20times, Thursday and Friday would be nice, if anyone could arrange it.

Thinking pulling UK100 was a bad move, okay it's not moving great either, but finding it hard to pay the spread on GA despite that being my previous best mate.

UK is back, GA stays need to get over that, Gold is pulled hate that spread!!

Need a slower trend study for days like today, 300sma added to the table. Just trying to increase the trades I'm prepared to take.


As long as I can hold long enough and get enough pips to make atleast 1.5x's the SL cost then it's all good, even if it's a 50/50 kinda setup.



Just got to remember, it's a last resort if anything else is called a direction before this, then that takes priority.

Typical the 1 day I don't take pad on the school run I miss a nice 40pip trend run on DAX and ftse


Today should rock, cause I have no chance of trading, next 2 days dead as no doubt.


Movement more please, consistency please!

P

Missed a good downtrend move on DAX and Uk and a big enough chop range to make it worth while


Role on hitting 20k usd target where I will then be happy enough to close up, hopefully forced to close before hand.



Need SLEEP!

Annoyed, why wasn't the SL over the 6850, GU was running up which also failed and reversed so I feared a uptrend move to join and well both reversed, normally I'd of took a 2nd position @6845 say exit 28 for +12 +17 doh!!


UK100 is kinda hard to trade Momentum wise very stop starty, not 1 to watch and judge for sure.
