I have stopped trading in the last days because of a health problem. I had only these trades a couple of days ago. As price was going to break the resistance (previous high), an intense movement forward and backward took place and my stop was hit. It was too risky to widen the stop, waiting for the almost sure (?) breakout. I have done this in the past and payed a lot.. A tight stop method like mine is vulnerable when applied on breakouts. That's why I apply it mostly when price is in a mid-range.
"When i trade at home, I often watch the sparrows in my garden. When I feed them bread, they take just a little piece at a time and fly away.They keep on flying back and forth, taking small bits of bread. You will never be able to shoot a sparrow, it is just too fast. That is the way I day trade". M. Weinstein.

There is nothing to sell on this blog. No signals, no "systems" for sale. Just my trading plan and the recording of my trades on eur/usd and the fx euro future recently. And the books, the music, the films I like.

Almost a lucky trade in post-NFP session. Price had compassion for my large stoploss and resumed down to give some gains.
