Now I undestand your entry

Now I am not surprised anymore
Now I know you get in in the middle of bar.

I enter differently :
I go long first yellow after green bar.
and short first blue bar after red bar.

Agree, I sometimes jump the gun, enter before the reversal bar closes.

I look at 1 tick range bar to time my entry.

Your way is more conservative, but safer.

9/24/15


Took a quick breakout Long trade, for +3.



2nd trade: attempted a pullback short, but price didn't go down, stopped out for -5.

If it didn't get stopped out, I'd have suffered a big loss.


3rd trade: tried to get in long, but didn't get filled, ended up chasing it, target didn't get filled at '30, price came back down, decided to exit, for BE.

After that, I tried twice to get in on pullbacks, but never got filled, so missed the big run up.


4th trade: a reversal short, when I saw price stalled.

I rarely do this type of trade.

Wasn't a very good entry, almost got stopped out by 1 tick. It eventually came down, exited with +1.



5th trade: a short after extended pullback
1st target hit for +6

Runner is still in force, it's progressing beautifully.

Will post chart when trade completes.

2nd target: runner got stopped out for +10.




I have much better results on short trades than long trades, simply because down trend is generally faster and more furious than up trend, and lasts longer.

nice to see a bond journal here

a suggestion: your chart would be better if you include Y axis for price

More interesting is to know

Charts: UniRenko (T1R2), RangeNoGap (1 tick), 1 min, 5 min, 15 min
Indicators: ThreeBarReversal, EMAs (10, 20, 50), GomCDHA, Volume, Session VWAP, Pivots, Jigsaw



Is the entry solely based on Unirenko or there is something behind the screen ?
Example : If price is above the PP and 15 min chart has green candle then
look Unirenko chart and take only long trades on breakouts or at higher lows.
