ok ...lets give it a try

...............................................................................................Thanks Bob, you fixed it....now if i could just do this with my trading...
,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,so with these 2 lines, i indented (like the beginning of a paragraph) it didnt work

OK, I see what you're doing. In the edit window (as I am typing now after quoting you), the "indenting" shows as space indented before the text begins. But when you save or submit, the indented space will disappear. This editor does not like indented paragraphs and will never put the indenting into the final post. You will have to live with that.

What you can do, is to use the Enter key to leave blank lines between your "paragraphs" -- which are actually just blocks of text that are set off from each other by a blank line.

So, what you do is hit the Enter key twice, at the end of what you want to be the block of text, and it will skip down two lines and let you put up formatted text that looks like this. It is impossible to get "indented" space at the beginning of the "paragraph" because it will take it away when you submit the post. But It is simple to get a blank line between the paragraphs, and that will fix your problem of run-on text. Your text will be broken up the way this text is.

If you notice, on one else on FIO has any paragraphs with indents at the beginning of the paragraph, but most people use the "hit Enter key twice" method to leave a blank line between their paragraphs, and that will break up your text and make it more readable.

Try this, and I guarantee it will work.

Bob.

I'm not sure what you are doing to "indent" to make paragraphs, but it's not what works (yeah, I guess you know this by now.... )

What you do is hit the Enter key. If you do it once, the cursor drops down to a new line. Like this:
Now it's on a new line, and this is where your typing goes. It's one line down, but no there's space between this and the line just above it. This is progress, but not what you want.

But if you hit Enter again, it goes down another line, so there's an empty space between lines, like this:

Now it's on a new line after a blank line. Now when you type, you are starting a new paragraph that is set off from what you typed before. Then when you're ready to start another paragraph, you just hit the Enter key twice, again.

And this is what you get. You don't get indented paragraphs, but the text is broken up into separate blocks that don't all run together.

If you don't use the Enter key to skip lines, then the text gets automatically formatted as part of the same block, and you never get the separation into distinct paragraphs (or at least sections) that you want. But if you do, voila! Success! And if you do want your typing to stay within the same paragraph block, you just keep on typing and it is automatically rendered without the line breaks -- until you decide to put them in with the Enter key.

Try it, this does work.



Bob.

Thanks Bob, having space between the lines is good enough to start a new paragraph....ill have to just live with it!In the past, people have commented on my rambling posts.I guess it irks me, and now, thanks to you, i have a way to fix this.Now, any fixes for my trading? crystal ball perhaps?

dec 4 tuesday

1st trade)gbpusd short.
adr was high, and macd startted rolling over at yhod.I shorted on the 50%retrace to todays hod.Honestly, i though it would get stopped .In hindsight, i should have added at 10 risk to nhod.This really bothered me.If I had added, i would have covered on that buy candle at 7:45 at 60 ema.It was a toss up between shorting a convergent LH,and sticking with a pb with trend.So, if i had added , i would have covered on that buy candle for 30 ticks on the add.I had no add, so i sat there and watched as price headed back up, not happy.The trade worked, and my target was a measured move/support area for my best trade in weeks...go figure, with a mistake.Ive been reading padax and rrracers journal.The MM worked well here..+44....3 hour trade

2nd trade
eurusd short
short on 50% retrace to nhod off of convergent LH, close enough to a double top.Initially i tried to add.I pulled,it never made it there anyway...was looking to add at 10 tick risk to nhod.I drew the measured move and it had confluence with 200 ema and yhod.I saw that buy candle, and when price took out the prev candle high, i covered.(similar to cover in 1st trade.+15

Im not really sure about how to think about today.For a while, its been bugging me that my 1st play is so far away from current hod/lod.This is a valuable edge.Trading towards the middle is more dangerous.Im tryng to trade with momentum tho,so fading the highs/lows is a reversal play.Thats why i look for a divergence with the macd.Today it worked.My stops were much bigger,but thats where the edge is.Also, i dont want to be taking trades every 2 or 3 days because my play doesnt show up.Honestly, i would love to be very active, but that would be scalping.I have tried to scalp. But never found my way.Also, forex probably not good for this with the spreads so big.So, even tho it was a positive day for $, im not overly joyed...also, getting grinded down by still struggling...Ill be here tho, tomorrow, 5 am

dec 7
GBPUSD short.Sell candle at res/200 ema test.Happened quick, shot up and took my 1st entry out before i could adjust the sl.The 2nd scale worked well, got taken out by a HH candle...I was looking for a dump, but it didnt happen.Im trying to let these run, and let the candle take me out.

I see a wedge reversal and a strong bull breakout. On your entry bar, the market traded below a bear bar and there will be limit order bulls buying that low as it's the first pullback and two legs up are expected. So they were buying as you were selling. The breakout was strong enough that the bears would need at least a micro double top. I think that usually, in this context you need to wait for a second entry. It doesn't really matter about moving averages. Just my thoughts on the price action, hope it's helpful.

Sure thing. All I'm looking for is 3 pushes down forming a reversal. You also notice how each leg in the bear trend is getting smaller as the bulls come in before it eventually reverses. I've marked the 3 pushes with a red line on the image. I see that the next trade you took worked out better, that's because it was a second entry after 2 legs up so the bears were then willing to short.
