why? it's better to take a loss. it looks like e/u. from my experience they are going for break of that trend line that formed over past few days lows. i do not mean it is going to be broken, I mean there is a good probability price will go to break it.
you know, Steve, the smaller your loss the easier is to trade back it.
ok, I start looking for opportunities.

hard to understand what you are doing Steve. have you bought before moving stop down or you sold and moved it to BE?
I think exact targets not always work. I was planning for 25 pips but had to close for half. price just did not go there.

I stayed al night awake and waited for the yesterdays trade. it is a winner. but did not take this one. may be I was tiered.

when I as fixing the code I made mistake and did not take any trade till now.
it is now working with the below rules.

stevewalker posted:
it will be redicilus if I think any EA will work with fix setup after all that coding and testing experience.
so what I am going to do is

EA will start run with the results of collected data.

but it will open all trades with the rule below;

lot 1/1 with the setup parameters
lot 1/10 with the against setup parameters

this will allow me to collect data and work on it. if EA work properly then I can code a algo for 'data work part'.




stevewalker posted:
momentum EA ( actually Acceleration EA )

currently I am looking the 20 tick acce. on the top of that when I look 20^2 ticks acce same direction it seems to be work.

but this has to be tested for a long time.

published account still trading with only first 20 tick acce and collecting data.

I used to be same. very very high frequency. You might remember my last summer oil trades. Big progress since then tough I was doing not bad at all. But I am doing much better now.
