Leonardo Pisano, nicknamed Fibonacci, was an Italian mathematician born in Pisa in the year 1170. His father Guglielmo Bonaccio worked at a trading post in Bugia, now called Béjaïa, a Mediterranean port in northeastern Algeria. The young Leonardo studied mathematics in Bugia and during extensive travels, he learned about the advantages of the Hindu-Arabic numeral system. In 1202, after returning to Italy, Fibonacci documented what he had learned in the “Liber Abaci” (“Book of Abacus”). In doing so, he popularized the use of Hindu-Arabic numerals in Europe.
The Fibonacci Number Sequence In the “Liber Abaci,” Fibonacci described the numerical series now named after him. In the Fibonacci sequence of numbers, after 0 and 1, each number is the sum of the two prior numbers. Hence, the sequence is as follows: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610 and so on, extending to infinity. Each number is approximately 1.618 times greater than the preceding...

In all liklihood the problem is either the strategy or how you are applying it. Personally I think it's the former but that's only because have observed very very few people are able to make technical-only strategies work for them. The ones that do operate as far as I can tell on fine margins. I should point out that my market focus is fx and this could all be completely hogwash in that it might actually work in other markets. Since you are trading fx I can tell you with confidence that you are wasting your time perusing a technical strategy in a fundamentally driven market.

Other traders on here and other forums will dispute this but I can tell you from working on a professional level in the industry for many years that none of the institutions trade that way. Technical traders pull the trigger and hope it works out which is why the few that can make it work have tight margins. Don't believe those that tell you we'll I risk one to make three so I can get away with a 50 percent win rate. The problem with this school of thought is the market doesn't work that way. Every move will garner interest but with varying degree. One move might yield 20 pips and another several hundred. You cannot quantify the scope technically because all you have to go by is historical price which is out of context to the current move. So applying a 3:1 ratio isn't really going to work and if it did everyone would be successful.

So instead of trading uncertainty they trade certainty and within that they have access to context to allow them to define appropriate targets and risk. Would you rather enter a trade and sit around waiting and hoping it works out or, enter a trade that you know with a high degree of certainty the market will react instantly because everyone who's anyone in this business is watching the same thing. The technical aspect of trading should only be used to manage trades and nothing else or your success will be limited and maybe even reversed.

So as a suggestion you should throw away what you are doing and start looking at the market like the traders that make money from it do. You will position yourself for greater success as a result.

Do you want me to send it via courier and include free tickets to a 2 week holiday? Seriously, do some research and get an idea what to do. Nobody is going to just hand over a working strategy to a stranger asking

you are new to Trade2win so let me advise you about the way it works here and in pretty much all forums...

you are not going to get all the answers to trading and the secrets of the universe here....you will get assistance and pointers and guidance if you are prepared to be patient and seek out those who will help you

but just asking "give me a system"........is not going to work .......

do some serious research yourself in the market and area you feel attracted to and then start to seek out more help and direction

good luck

I don't have the time to teach anyone because I know the level of attention and time that involves which isn't a luxury I have. I can give pointers and what tools to use and have a thread of my own you could follow.
