Recap 19/12

4 trades today, 2 winners, 2 losers, 7 pips lost, -1,10% on account.

A clear 5M chart

I don't trade 5M chart often but it's much more clear than 1M most of the times : on this one (in the circle) i have a double TL break, a MA rejection, PLUS a textbook Zero line rejection on the CCI. What do you need more? A handsome drop followed shortly after this. During that time I was busy with 1M noise.

7 easy ones

7 easy pips. Much more on the table but doesn't matter.

No trades

The pre-London was boring today, I thought that could continue like that all day long and I closed charts. But the nice swings were there, later on. So i didn't trade at all. I have very busy days with my day job till end of year, need some rest too.

REcap 17/12

16 trades today (8x2), 12 winners, 4 losers, 39 pips won, +2,53% on account.

Risky breakout

Entered short on horizontal breakout at 163,50, but a retracement followed, a round number rebound. It went till -13, one pip from my stop and i was lucky enough to see price reverse at this point, giving a quick +14 pips gain. Better (and safer) entry was at 12:26 time, after the MA rejection and fast Guppy EMAs rejection.

Being there

This is becoming an obsession for me: I listened to it all the weekend long, in the plane etc. The guy is phenomenal. The best piano trio in the last few years, IMHO. Proving that sensual, spiritual jazz can come even from  icy Norway.

"As silence can sometimes speak as loudly as thunder, and insofar as careful elaboration of melody can be just as compelling as more vivid expansion, Gustavsen's trio makes a clear case for the elusive power of restraint."

A bargain right now with peanut dollar on Amazon. Two more excellent cds of Tord with ECM.

Weekly stats : Week 6 (3-7 Dec.)

Few trades this ending week, compromised by the important mistake I did on Tuesday, wich gave the big av. loss showed above. The increased W/L ratio had no effect because of this, and the week ended slightly down.
