Thanks again. I asked 'cos I was short from the open and got
stopped out on the pullback - was wondering if I could have set
stop more intelligently.

Not in yet today (off to play golf in an hour) so just watching.

Been away seeing my mother in Dorset and then took 4 hours to travel back to the Cotswold yesterday (so no trading)-and I thought everyone had gone back to work on Monday!

Question: How did you arrive at the Fib level 4173. I was looking at move from 4044.9 (6/08) to 4286.9 (19/08) = 242 points. Using .38, .5 and .618 I got 4194, 4166 and 4137.
Missed this morning as had power failure in Cotswold at 8.15am. Obviously now seen continuation of late trend yesterday.

I only use fibs againt waves.
so the start at 4045 had been corrected before the big move got underway.
so my low was 4060

with virtually no follow through on the open,
ftse seems to have spent all morning gently falling to fill its gap.
That's now done.
so, eyes down.
Game on !
