Opposite way

Same mistake as on the previous post : not trusting the trend, closing the trades and missing most of the pips.

A clear trend

Missed the first move down on this, then i managed to follow the price and get some pips. Two problems here : First, I don't trust the trend much, so I close early and re-enter, missing a substancial part of the move. Second, I try to anticipate the reversal point and that is very risky on a strong trend like this one of today.

Back to my base and trading. Starting with these 3 trades, the third one should be closed earlier.

Mini scalps on eur/usd today, as I monitor this pair also since last week. It takes some time to be accustomed to scan two pairs on scalping level simultaneously, but this way i can pick the best opportunity every time, the appropriate setup and volatility. 10 charts in total open in front of me, on two 23'' screens. I will not be bored!...

Take the "A " train

First trade was easy : taking the third ot fourth lower high down, after the first red bar.

Flat hour

Second day in a row with very tight range inside my time slot (10:00 EST). A lot of pain to get 1-2 pips. At the same time the eur/usd pair was clearly more vivid! Eur/usd is more interesting recently than the cross pairs. Should I change instrument or time slot? I decided to keep open charts of both pairs and trade the more volatile of the two.

A textbook breakout here, after a long range. Entry was positioned just outside the range using a limit order and a tight stop, because the range could continue ad aeternam. Exit below the first red bar.

Post NFP trades

First trade was easy, next ones were less obvious, due to tight stop i use on similar situations.

Duty paid

I paid my duty inside the range and then got the pips on the local breakout and sweet reversal. Relatively precise entries/exits.

The twin red bars on the chart are a sign of stagnation and eventual swing point. One of many that bars can give.
