too tempting - long Y as well now, so it'll reverse from here...

GMP started this thread US Ind Prod figures in a few mins could prod the Y either way (via the Dow)...this is what I hate: leave it on or take it off?

stoploss moved to breakeven on Y; shame I got cold feet on the Y but that's trading - better than have them both move against me

Re: ICC Forex System testing

GMP started this thread EOD report
$ +10, +40
€$ 0
+24, +9
€ +12
Total: +95

Three that got away were a € trade of +102 & a €$ trade of +70 I wasn't up early enough for and a trade of +40 that I got cold feet on just before the US Ind numbers came out.
Tinkered with the exit strategy after getting out of this morning's $ trade too early - the new one's the black symbols on the pic. Still fantasy realm stuff until I get it bedded in and stop tinkering.

No € or $ today as I'm trying something a little different with them. Beginning to think one size doesn't fit all. Also beginning to think I should start a bit earlier...

Key: Vertical line on the left is 8am UK time
Arrows are Entries, Ticks are successful exits, Crosses are unsuccessful exits, Thumbs up & down are signals (and their exit) rejected through timing (e.g. lunchtime, or just before a major economic data announcement)

GMP started this thread Fatal to take a tea-break away from the computer - 5 min candle after the halfhour took out my 10 pip stops on both € & € - bugger!
Right at the top of the wick on € too. Back in that one short at original level now.
