I'm breaking discipline - trying to find deals.

robicat started this thread V Important why the discipline break? Cause i wanted to trade even though i didn't have a signal.

Thus I need to have a range of signals tuned to situations and make the switch.

I need to design activity and creativity in so the rules can be obeyed. So I can respond to new situations in a contr4olled and thought out way.
