May 2nd trading

Three trades. A full winner, a small winner and a loser. I did not have the recorder on today so screens only.

6B trade
The Pound has been dipping and took the low that was formed at the open. Took the short at the CWAP with 3 lots. Missed the 2:1 target by 2 ticks and got stopped out.

6J trade
The Yen has been declining for the past six days. In the morning it continued further down. Took the short at CWAP with 2 lots. Got the 2:1 target with the first contract. The second one was stopped at the currentmost swing VWAP.

6J trade
After the decline the Yen seemed to form a double bottom opportunity. Took the long position at transition VWAP with 4 lots. My initial stop was 4 ticks. Got the 2:1 (8 ticks), 3:1 (12 ticks) targets as well as the last target at the swing VWAP.

May 3rd 2017 trading


Two trades. A small winner, and a loss.

6E trade
The Euro has been ranging all morning. In the afternoon a double top seemed to form. No break came so I took the short at what seemed to be a transition. Got the 2:1 target quickly but the rest was stopped at break-even.



6J trade
There was no real movement in the Yen as well in the morning. In the afternoon an opportunity including a triple bottom seemed to form. Took the long position after a rotation. Full stop.



Total daily P/L: -$55.06

Bad day. Three losses.

6E trade
The Euro has been in a decline since yesterday’s report activity. When it came back to swing CWAP which was also the current session high I took a short. This one was quick. I could not even move my stop one tick back. Anyway a full loss.

The Yen was in a slow and steady rise in the morning. The swing took the overnight high over so I tried to play the CWAP. Took long at the pullback with 3 lots. With a bit of luck the price got to my 2:1 and 3:1 targets.

May 9th 2017 trading

Bad day. Four trades – four losers.

6E trade
I tried to play the 9 o’clock transition. The price was forming a triple bottom formation. Took the long after a transition. Stopped.

6E trade
The Euro has dipped down to a previous transition level. I tried to play a double bottom pattern as it it seemed to make a nice transition. Quick stop. After the stop yet another transition seemed to happen so I took long once again at the same spot. Same result.

May 10th 2017 trading

Stacking losses. Five of them.

6J trade
The Yen broke previous two transition lows. Took the CWAP short. The price rotated but then stopped me out.

6J trade
The move that stopped me in the previous trade was so strong I decided to jump on at CWAP. Unfortunately the price had to go even deeper. Stopped at VWAP.

6J trade
The last Yen trade was a bet on a triple bottom formation. Took the long at transition VWAP. Stopped below the value.

6E trade
The Euro bounced of a double bottom and took a range high. Took long at CWAP. This time I could not watch the fourth loss in a row to come so I took one lot of at 10 ticks. The rest was stopped.
