Can't ars*d with you, clearly, you have no idea what your on about, and are aggressive in your response, when people are trying to give you good solid advice regard trading with the trend, closing losing trades rapidly and letting winning trades run.

Daily USD/JPN still up (chart 1)
Todays 5 min chart, showing 2 trades into the prevailing trend (Chart 2)

Both trades +20 moves, whilst you still hanging on for a hope and a prayer, For your trade that is +200 offside, using a standard R/R1:2 are your targeting a -400 fall from this point?, I assume you will ignore this question.

Good luck, whilst you flap around attempting to "impress" people, I'm going back into the shadows and focus on making money, I know I will (and with the trend)

Goodbye
Save your advice. Did I ask for anyone's advice ? Does it actually make sense for me to follow advice from people who can't trade ?

One reason I ask people to call out is to assess their ability, whether what they say has value. Since you have no faith in what you say yourself, why would what you say have value for anyone else ?

I don't have a target, I may exit on a £100 profit. If the market conditions look good to me and I have no need to juggle my positions, I may let it run further. Given the $ strength, it may go further offside. But so what ? I have tolerance for it to go all the way up and come all the way down again. This is how I like to play it, hence it's called no limits.

You won't. They move 5 points against you and you are dead. After 15 years, you have not progressed beyond a beginner. You are what the call out challenges are designed to eliminate. One more biting the dust.

Although my tolerance in markets is vast, my tolerance for pretenders is microscopic. Reason is I consider it insidious for some people to tell others to follow things they themselves have no faith in.
Typically you make adverse assumptions without even checking whether you might be barking up the wrong tree or not. If you had bothered to look you would have found plenty of trades called by Dinos - they start here http://www.trade2win.com/boards/trad...ml#post2884942 .

I thought you were not talking to me no more ?

He may have called as you may have. It's easier for him to call a new one than for me to dig up an old one. It'd take him 5 seconds armed with his colourful charts. The fact he spent 3 days of posting to avoid a 5 second call tells me something is not right.

Anyway here's where he got his latest ideas from. I watched this many times when I was still floundering in the dark. So I am not completely unfamiliar with Dino's charts. Regardless, I find no value in them.

I would like to know if a stock chart is downtrending let's say from $30, and the stock is up (let's say 8%) since the Opening of the Market, it is a good thing to short the stock ? and vice versa ?

Thanks for your returns.
90% of my trades are counter trading, are the best trades....
