Sometimes the filter will prevent a buy trade. Yeah, it saved you at least a head ache for you today.

This may be a long one.

I will keep an eye on the EA that failed to trigger this morning. I'm a bit suspicious as I have the following warning message on my MT4 experts tab that was logged at 0615GMT:

22:15:06 TurboMorningTrade_EA_1.0 GBPUSD,M15: zero divide

Not sure whether it is a coincidence that this happens the day after I change the EA settings.

Re: College Fund Challenge

tkbieber started this thread Ok, just a little update on the trade from last night. It currently is still in a draw-down. Tonight's possible set-up could be a buy. That in mind, I will not be making a buy because that just could be double jeopardy (double risk). Now, if it turns out to be a sell, I will do a hedge because the normal rules apply and won't effect the draw-down.

Now, when there are these draw-downs, it can be a good time to pick up some extra pips if one isn't badly leveraged to begin with. I started a buy after the original trade was already -80 pips so that can potentially earn me a little extra % for the week.

With the $2M account, for some reason that account failed to trade at all. Because my other accounts did trade, I felt it would be ok to go ahead and make a trade. I entered about 50 pips below where it would have opened a trade so, assuming the trade goes good, should pick up about 10%.

The drama continues.

No short signal today for a hedge. Cable continues South.

View account.

Things are headed north at the moment. More drama for the standing trade.
