Dax quick winning setup count = AM can't call to be fair, 10:30am gmt maybe 3 moves coulda cost me, likely 30 setups which would of worked fine!!

UK easier to call in the am, fair few little setups, all 10pips area.

Over slept, missed an entry near 9950 long which woulda worked so far, slow uptrend wasn't willing to play chop.

Coffee and starting paying attention.


New rules, mild trend can counter trade near the 0.1%,so further out! strong trend we'll never! enter with mild trend at 0.05%


Easy

Lets try a trend change, DAX has turned down, pulled up and stalled so short 9952 SL 9962. 2nd position 9956 incase we back back to chop.

Theory being, it'll stop between the Envelopes, so if I'm wrong its range should be in the area 9946 - 9956 vaguely, which means 2nd position 56, average 54 profit +18 risking 16, but win rate should cover it.

54 here, failing with style LOL

50 here, going vaguely the right way, didn't get high enough for 2nd position, 50 is a key number can it break ??


Slow days are a nightmare, but there here to stay I guess, improvise adapt and overcome, or FUBAR!!

Short lived, at 56 holding but it's range bound, zero trend so weak 1st position, but atleast i have a fall back position.


57 hmmmmm 58

Range is moving, SL out to 63, 2nd position took 57, SL 63, target 50 area, maybe a move down will form and I'll make some good pips, or maybe it won't, they happen against me all the time, once, just once with me would be nice, you'd figure 50/50 chance but still falling for traps I guess.


My kingdom for momentum to be trading with!!

Inner range holding, mid line uptrend, so 0.1% is at 65, SL should move to 66 or 67 but then SL's would become well silly.

Okay don't trade, when slow sound easy enough, but it might not of been slow when I took position 1, might of been part of a down move, which looks exactly like that at the time.


Market just isn't moving, so there sadly is no plan to get around this


UK100's loss was the Equiv of -23 pips for 6pip move, yes I was bored and entered the wrong number in the trade size, first UK100 in ages.


-3 pips here, take the soft loss, arggghhh!!

lower range, gets me 52 at best, SL is inner range SL here really.

SL upped to 66, 3rd position took at 60, inner range is working, but inner range is in a uptrend, so the target is going the wrong way and so is the SL.


News and a 100pip drop, 3 positions in, would net me 6weeks wages, come on LOL


German news at 2, -8 here.


BORED!!!

Show me 9952 again and I'm out +10 which is useless to be honest.


Got it +10 for 2 hours was it from start to end, WOWSA, actually pretty good hourly rate if you forget the risk factor and I lost 2.3times that in sub 10mins yesterday LOL


Will I regret this exit, most likely, US Pre open 2mins and counting, going lower

Major regrets, could of taken another 30pips right there already LOL


I'd of made weeks wages this week just about from that, such small moves required but still can't nail them accurately enough.


Cash flow still end of August, might get a bump but, that's my deadline for wage #1 $2000 USD, not looking good!!
