Day Trading 101

Hi Sebastian – for Kiwi, I believe I entered late on that one and price was already below the ribbon….so I just put my S/L a little lower for breathing room.
For Gbp – it was a good set-up, but the candle was too long and too far below ribbon – long candles usually re-trace….either you widen your stop, or wait for next entry which happened 4 candles later – this is what I have found works.
I’ve attached nasdaq chart to show how to re-enter.
Hope this helps.

do you use this technique for the nasdaq or other indexes a lot?November 2, 2015 at 3:39 pm #56993
Hi Sebastian – I often use it for nasdaq, I haven’t tried it on other indexes.

Thanks very much Raj.
The nasdaq just broke all-time highs. Just see how they’re kidding us around 🙂 Maybe they provoked this small “crash” on purpose to earn twice haha But Draghi helped a lot I think 🙂
I’m getting enticed by a long-term position in this index, what’s your view?November 2, 2015 at 4:27 pm #56999
I’d like to ask about the usd/jpy chart just a few minutes ago:
The moving averages are crossing each other, but it’s a big candle. I drew the fibs just around the big candle – is that correct? It retraced 50%. By the time the moving averages move apart from each other (two candles further), we break the previous bearish candle high. Is this a good setup or would you avoid it and why?November 2, 2015 at 4:44 pm #57001
Great setup! Entry would be at the start of the candle after the red candle because that’s when you get your averages separating.
First I was racking my brain thinking my chart didn’t look anything like yours, because you said usd/jpy, then I realized you were talking about usd/chf

Hi Folks, just a few trades I took during Asian Session. Entries and re-entry examples using this system.

Just wanted to tease you so I said usd/jpy haha 🙂
Thanks for your help.
Do you always re-enter when candles go back to or below/above the ribbon like in your nzd/jpy examle? So even after a long time of the moving averages crossing each other.November 3, 2015 at 7:11 am #57011
Hi Sebastien I do it once or twice, but you are right you have to be cautious because at some point the smaller TF may have bigger retrace and stop you out.
So when looking for set-ups, since I trade 5 and 15min charts, I scan my 30 and 60 min charts to see which direction to trade in.
If 60min chart is below ribbon, I look for sells on the 15min chart and same for 5min chart if the 30 is under the ribbon.

Thanks Raj that makes a big difference. So far stopped out 3 for 3!November 3, 2015 at 8:12 am #57013
Ouch….Barbara, if you like, post them and we can see what went wrong.

I will once I figure out how to do that😮November 3, 2015 at 8:28 am #57015

Raj I went short on EUR/JPY at the red candle as the ribbons separated. Stopped out by next candle. Example attached I think!November 3, 2015 at 10:46 am #57029
Hi Barbara, I know that the Daily is in a down trend, but just have a quick peek at the 30 or 60 min chart before entering on the 15 chart. You may not have entered based on what was happening on that time frame.
This is my only beef with that trade.
Hope this helps.

first attempt 3:1 after some back testing.
I think it will go much more if I apply fibo swings system, but playing save for now.November 3, 2015 at 2:52 pm #57046
Hi Moaied, careful with this one – its sideways and messy for the last 5 days.

Hi Raj, just to let you know, so far, so good. I have started on demo today. By following all rules you explained, big candle, 50% retracement, higher TF trend etc. I have some good results. No questions for now. Watch me out later. 🙂 Thanks again man.November 3, 2015 at 3:32 pm #57048
I like that point Raj.
I noticed that it’s better you leave those charts alone when the candles have lots of shadows to either direction. So they’re just messing around and the SL could get hit easily.
I’ll post my results after 100 trades, so I have a large sample size and I know whether I’m successful. I’m trading 0.01 lots on a live account. The reason is because it’s the perfect opportunity to see how the broker deals with slippage, SL hunting etc. These small lots do not cost anything, one trade for 50 cents or so if it goes wrong. So I like that better than trying it on demo.November 3, 2015 at 3:53 pm #57049
