shorted E/U at night and went long GBP/USD and oil. wow, lost 25 pips on /U but my my it fetched me nice pips on oil and G/U. closed 200 pps on G/U and t/p on oil. seems like another positive week might happen. I am thinking of moving to RBS. FXPrimus position size is too much for my account and RBS offers same units fomat as Oanda but no crappy emails about some regulations compliance.

FED announcement. meanwhile I think after I make at least 1 positive month I will move to RBS and after another positive month I might resume posting results. for now I need to decide how to trade when I have so little time in front the screen.
career wise unless I have stable schedule at time which I want I am in a bind.

I am long E/U and closed oil for some pips profit. E/U stop on BE and i am in some profit. obviously people are waiting for news. let's see how this will turn as I am leaving.
Week is already positive anyway, but I sure well down this month. let's see how this trade ends and I will know my monthly DD.

Take profit was hit some 15-30 min after I left.
Ended November with 9% DD and is 8% down now.
will let know end of December results and if I am positive will start posting again.
I trade only 2:30-5:30 a.m. London till June 2012.

It may sound weird, but I have been watching charts on higher time frames from at least daily perspective and it came to me that really all those candles might mean not much and trading can be done without them altogether. and then I had a dream and awoke right away and ran to PC to check it.
it looks like there is something to it and I really feel I am onto something.
I am just watching now back onto history and going to put some things on paper. I think it might take a couple of weeks.
The most important trading this way doe snot require staring into screen all the time and time restrains would not limit me as they do now.
The most important my dear stops are also there. It is not withut stops approach.

Yeah, higher TFs are so peaceful. All you need are a few trendlines and other simple stuff. I think the candles and exact numbers don't matter a jot on higher TFs. Is it going up or down, that is the only question.

LOL, that dream thing was funny. Aren't those numbers messing with our heads too much? Ahh, the digital age. Digits everywhere. Take it easy. 😄

Play some music, young daddy 😁

Surround yourself with people whose eyes light up when they see you and who have no agenda for your reform.

If only it were so easy 😉
I do work on plan to trade from daily perspective but it is not long term trading. Can be intraday trade or few days trade as long as I am waiting for my target or stop to be hit.
I will post some parts of my plan for it. since I have no much time, I am concentrating on E/U only for now. Oil would be too dangerous for this kind of trading as I leave trades alone for 5-7 hours sometimes.

you are on the wright path. Bar close means nothing due time is up and new bar should be printed. that is the bar close means. system should trade the patterns. or price action will kill all trades.

really corious about the results.

good luck!
