YourFriend started this thread tomorton: noone answered my question. The replies are out of the scope of what I am asking. I was/am asking what else to do to avoid consuming time waiting endlessly for months for current loss to become profit or at least minimum what would cover negative swap so i don't loss money. Also provided some screenshots with a hope that perhaps someone will see catch a failure. Hopefully keeping in mind that, would make me not do the same failure in the future. I think Lightning McQueen is also a huge football fan just like me and he is probably busy with World Cup just like me. I am also football fan so I understand him. Actually all what I have learned from previous replies, and would like to thank you again to all who replied, is to look at higher timeframes, e.g. D1 instead of H4. This doesn't help me much.

Kaeso: according to my research, ''So Darn Easy Forex'' is the world's second best online trading consulting service, right after Tim Sykes' lectures for stocks only. Even ''So Darn Easy Forex'' guy is using new subscription plan which is for all financial instruments and not only currency pairs but his membership fees are very high. I have heard/read only positive feedbacks about him with full of detailed, well explained, knowledge. Do you know any better consulting service? I see many via google search such as tradingacademy.com, fxacademy.com, learntotradethemarket.com etc. Nothing seems to be better than ''So Darn Easy Forex''. Would you suggest anything else? Don't want signals/alerts.

My thinking is the answers aren't bad answers as such, but you don't like them.

You don't understand the market. Your question doesn't have an answer that you would accept because the answer you are looking for doesn't exist.

that's fantastic, but he has given you the method to "always win at trading forex" for free in the video, no ?

No, his entire knowledge is for paid members only but prices are very high. Were you his student or are you? Do you know any better ''trading training'' than ''So Darn Easy Forex''? So far I haven't used anyone knowledge at all yet. All I learned was on my own. Invested a lot of time, effort but there is still a lot more for me to learn otherwise I wouldn't need to waste time on those current losses of opened positions.

I am starting to think that I won't get needed answer/solution on your forum

You’ve had plenty of answers, but it seems that you haven’t really wanted to hear what’s been said.

The answer to your question “What extra protections could I do, BEFORE entering into position, to avoid unwanted retracement into the opposite direction comparing to my opened trade” is quite simple.

Answer: There is nothing you can do to avoid an unwanted retracement. What you can do is to protect your capital by taking a loss before it gets too great and/or ties up your money for weeks on end in the often forlorn hope that the trade will eventually come good.

thank you for recognizing that it is my forum, many people forget this

i seems to me you might need to dump the excess baggage acquired from your prior learning and go back to basics

So you went short GBPCHF in March at 1.291? And you said you were in profit at some point by 55% - when was that? Until April it only went up...

You said you hate to close for a loss, but with this kind of trading you really need to use stops. Is this sort of trading really for you?

I was in profit on the same day when i opened short GBPCHF position (2nd Match) and next business day. But was too greedy. Didn't have Trailing Stop Loss active and then major uptrend happened.

What sort of trading would be for me then? I researched for training called ''Platinum Trading Academy'' and got the answer from their representative that membership cost 8500 GBP but i don't remember for what time period this is. Yes you read it correctly: 8500 GBP for membership. I am doing my best to find something much cheaper - obviously i am talking about online consulting / training. Already know many strategies with indicators, custom and default indicators. Would particularly like to fill the missing knowledge gap when it comes to ''naked charts'' (price action) analysis. I think here is where I still have the most to learn.

Your wasting your time on naked charts and price action. It does work for a few but they are in a very small aggregate group.

You can escape this problem determining interval of "trust". I mean you will be right in backtesting and in future forecasts what helps to avoid unexpected issues in your trading.
