    I wish to share one of my trades from yesterday.

    On EURJPY EA is currently looking for shorts and a failure of local bottoms.
    In the picture below you can see that yesterday such a failure had place which gave opportunity to short sell and to flow with the momentum.
    This trade was closed with 34 pips profit.

    If you have any questions, please ask.

    Hi,

    Today I will briefly describe strategy which is connected to myfxbook.
    As I said before this strategy is in phase of incubation.

    It is trend following strategy which is based on failures of last tops/bottoms.

    Other rules:

    1. All positions must be closed at the end of the session.
    2. Use Breakeven.
    3. No Take Profits.
    Why such rules?
    Let’s start one by one.

    1. Why I close all positions at the end of the session?

    Because:
    • Swap is additional cost.
    • Lower liquidity during night (higher probability for flash crash)
    • New day – new opportunities.
    2. Why I use a Breakeven?
    • No sense in staying in the undecided market.
    • Low profit is better than low loss.
    3. Why I don’t use Take Profits?
    • No one can predict if directional move takes 20 or 200 pips.
    • Black swans really exist;).
    • “Cut losses and let profits run”.
    Money management in this strategy for now is set as below:
    1. Max DD: 50%
    2. Max risk per trade: 3%
    After I accept strategy, I change MM to lower values.

    "Trading is simple, but not easy". Just wait patiently for this one proper trend. But in practice, patience loses with greed. People want to earn fast, which is why they open many meaningless transactions. #onetradepaysforeverything DetailedStatement.gif

    After 7 profitable weeks finally came the lossy, luckily small:) Each series has its end. This is the basis of a statistical approach. Losing days, weeks or months is something normal. The long-term result counts, because #onetrendpaysforeverything :cool:

    Some thougths about trading:

    # 1 [EN] The worst thing you can do when choosing a given investment / investment project is to be unprepared.
    Risk - the most important issue. We often forget about it at the very beginning and we remind you when it is too late. Remember, the more profits you expect, the more risk you have to take. There is no risk-free investment, no one knows what will happen in the future, and despite the best intentions, a given project may fail. So before investing your funds, answer the question: will you feel comfortable in a situation where you would lose them? If not - it means that the risk is too high, look for investments that are consistent with your character. Remember that in the world of investment only you are responsible for your finances for generated profits and losses, so you have to understand and accept the risk.
