hi, alienek, the charts not as complicated as you think, once you start to break it down, but yeah there is a lot of information on there!

the vertical dotted blue lines are my previous trades and next to them is an arrow giving direction,
the horisontal red and purple lines are daily pivot points, ]
the diaganal white lines are trend channels
the yellow diagonal lines are a simple zig zag, and the smaller red line is part of the zup indicator.
the yellow numbers are from zup and are simply fib numbers with dotted blue lines.
then just for good measure i have bollingerbands.

in the lower window is a stoch and an RSI set to 4.

because i am only looking for 25pips i'm using the same setup on lower time frames, which is why the 1h chart isn't generating the signals that i'm trading this account from.

Its just a case of balancing information and ability to process it, you could have 30 indicators and only pull the trigger when all of them confirm, but you would only take 1 trade a year! If you only have one indicator you will get a lot of false signals. I wait until i get a 4 indicator confirmation and only then i pull the trigger.

Where in Indonesia are you? i'm in Bali at the moment...

Brilliant. And great explanation of the indocators that you use and things.

Any particular reason why you only concentrate on AUDUSD ?

hi daCoops,

because i'm starting with only $25 it limits the pairs i can open, for example with 500:1 leverage GBPUSD costs about $32.94 and gives back $1 per pip, obviously i cant afford to open a single position.

the NZDJPY however costs 15.7 and gives back $1.25per pip. so its cheaper to open and can make you more money, the catch is that volitility is not great, so for this challenge i needed a balance between cheap and good volatility, which the AUDUSD has.

As i trade the AUDUSD for real i all ready have a sense of whats going on with the pair, and dont have to do any extra homework on a new country, which makes life a little easier! lol

hope this helped...
