Long #41

Went in with only 2lts because it is Monday and election is coming up and its later in the afternoon and this could be a loss.

SL -10p

Tgt 16p

1244pm

Loss -10.7p

Should have placed SL 1p above and lost less.

AUD/USD Friday 11.2.12 1206pm

Long #41 and DP

Was wondering if this was a good trade or not since it was Friday but understanding that Strategy is more important than feeling is what got me to put it on.

SL -17p

TGT +34p

253pm

Gain +28p

(I was adjusting the SL down with the 5m Ch. and then I change my SL to Trailing Fixed “50” and as soon as I clicked ok it Sold so I missed out on 6p from the original Tgt.)

AUD/USD Friday 11.2.12 704am

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Short #41 and DP.

Didn’t check this last night since I was checking GBP/USD and since it was Friday I was wary of going in and loosing pips but did so because strategy was saying to do it (all emotions out, negative or positive).

SL -13p

Tgt +26p

830am

Loss -12.3p

Didn’t realize that jobs data was to come out this morning. But my identical trade on GBP/USD worked with a gain of +43p but this one the SL was hit with a spike.

GBP/USD Friday 11.2.12 205am

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Short #41 and DP

The 1am candle was the signal candle and when I awoke to check it I got a better deal to get in.

SL -23p

Tgt 43p (1 pip lower since it can come close and reverse).

841am (while in traffic)

Gain +43.8p

Once my target was hit it retreated and went back down +14p past the Tgt.

There was a jobs report due this morning and that is why the pair was going sideways while I check thru the night.

EUR/USD Thursday 11.1.12 804am

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Long #41 and #26h4 (woke up at 2am and 5am to check and no triggers of strategy) (#26h4 was very close but still bullish so I went in).

SL -17p

Tgt +17p

850am

Gain +17p

AUD/USD Thursday 11.1.12 503am

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Long #41 (DP). (set alarm to wake up at 502am to check and since this had triggered I went in)

SL -16p

Tgt +32p

(two candles before was a bear strategy but next candle, the one before this was a doji and this candle closed above the 75 and BB, thus triggering a Long indication)

1022am

Gain +32.7p

AUD/USD Wednesday 10.31.12 1200pm

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Long #41 (DP)

SL -18p (since it had run up a few pips so quickly I had to go in at that time and that is the price I paid and SL was right below the signal candle, thus it being 18 instead of 17).

Tgt 34p (the actual length of the signal candle was 17 thus that is equal to 2x 17).

1202

Realized that I hadn’t checked the RSI before buying and when I checked it it was at 47.05. I realized this trade was no good and got out of it with a quick loss.

Loss -4.3p

EUR/USD Tuesday 10.30.12 918am

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Long #41 and #26h4

SL 19p (should’ve been 23p; 20p for candle and 3p for late entry which already run up that much)

Went in late, 918 is late for this candle.

1235pm

It peaked and I realize that my Tgt might have been 1p too high.

505pm

It closed under the 5MA a couple of candles and I checked on bak-tst for this and it looks I will stop out.

720p

It came back above the 5MA and after my trade being (-12p) it is now breakeven.

906pm

Took loss manually (saw this trending down and that it would hit my SL. Which it did before rallying to past my Tgt over-night but pair would’ve reached down to grab my SL and then rally so I would’ve lost 19p, so I saved.)

Loss -7.3p (originally -19p)

GBP/USD Tuesday 10.30.12 710am

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Long #41 and DP, SL -17p (originally -19, below signal candle but when I went in I got a better deal).

Set price alert 19p away

Tgt =38p

706pm

Moved SL to +0.2p

905pm

SL triggered

Gain +0.3p
