Great Trading Dante

Dante,

Think you are doing some great things with this thread. You probably deserve some .

Really touched by why you have done this as my partners Dad also suffers from parkinsons. He's still pretty active but taking the drugs and coming on and off them is awful to watch. It's also tough cos he really likes playing with our daughter but she wears him out to much but is not old enough to understand.

It definitely makes you feel good about society knowing there are people out there like yourself. And a darn site better than listening to all the bad news on TV and in the papers.

Keep up the good work. I will continue to watch with interest.

Glen

Bah! Go back to scalping the FTSE off the order flow and leave the real moves to the big boys, LL!

trader_dante started this thread Not the best day yesterday. I played the gap fill on the Euro/Usd with the entry coinciding with a break of support (point 1) but after half the gap filled, I moved my stop to breakeven and then got stopped out on a retracement covering near the highs before the REAL move kicked off.

I then tried to get long later in the day off the inside bar that appeared near the lows entering at (point 2) Long tails showed short term value rejection below the S/R pivot so I went long on the break but after being 40 ticks up decided to move my stop once again to breakeven with a pivot between my entry and the price. A retracement bought me out once again for nothing.

I tried again later at point 3 but closed immediately for a scratch when I found that the inside bar was actually the result of a data error in MT4 and price had actually pushed higher in that bar and then been forced down.

Finally, in the evening, I caught the violent break to the upside from the consolidation area, entering 2 per tick at point 4. I closed it at first potential resistance at point 5 for a profit of 120.
