Where his the short setup on the 15 point chart?
I think maybe it would be good if you mark up both charts, and maybe how and where you take the exit?

Take your Pips, go out and Live.
Luke.

My crosshair is synced on both charts so its marked .. My exit is generally 15-20 ticks most of the time 20 ticks i dont mark my exits because its all personal preference some like it at 10 some at 30 i do at 15-20 if there is a reason for exit other then that i will specify .. !!! hope it helps .. and review charts are not my live trade just potential setups in the us session live trade was the long trade from today ...

Trade Critique/Advice


Hi Jinhar, thank you so much for the breakdown of your trend following system. I have been trying to develop a trend following system for a few months now but was missing a few key points and was glad to see you broke it down into what you do in the real world. I am still trying to get a handle on risk/money management and have taken a few large losses in CL mostly with a few tiny gains in everything else.

It's also too easy for me to get involved into indicators and programming them which is enjoyable and challenging but not helping my trading.

Using my interpretation of what you explained I entered an "A Setup trade" today as indicated by the screenshots with my actions during the trade. Do you have any tips/advice? I am using a 2 and 6 range chart to keep it small and 34 period ema (Note the times are local PST).
