Okay I stopped trading and went back to planning mode, missing HUGE swings on DAX here if I was still holding I'd be +70pips here and self fiving myself to the bank LOL


Looks like I need to put GBPAUD back on the table, the spread was putting me off and seemingly easy money on the DAX, chart attached with trend entry places ( after the fact, but trying to be honest, would I risk them live ?? ) 1 loses, many do fine.

UK100 is far from exciting, ranges are kinda small, so dumping UK100 for GBPAUD, newer method better supports GA aswell

GPBAUD is finding some support around this area, lets take a shot at US open chop is all that's going on here and back up.

Long 1.78892, SL 1.7869 so 20pips, 2nd position near 1.7890


Same approx value per pip!!

Not in the mood, head is killing me so out for a quick +5 pips


so +8 +20 -23 +10 +5 = +20 on the week, hoorraaaa!!!!


the -23 should be +40 area, the +10 coulda been +40 at a risk ofcourse so +123 was on the table, I'm trading approx 18% efficiency LOL

Good call short term on the exit method / ranges called it, better stay out work to drive to, hard to trade and drive.


DAX gave some good scalpy entries.


The hours of nothing, means I've lost interest when it starts to move LOL but hey good to watch and master it.


All is FINE!!

Shorting where I exited, would be approx +30 here, dratts


It's all reforming slowly back together, got to at times, break it apart and reconsider every angle, get led down a few dead end tracks and keep going till it's profitable and I'm happy with it again.


And every time, I stop making $$$'s the same happens again, role on 1 day finding a universal method, I'm hopefully getting closer but ??

DAX tested and failed to break the 300sma 4 times for good pips every time, interesting.

GA similar.


Back to full speed ahead soon I think
