Well, as I said in my last post, I did take another shot at AUD/JPY, but it also failed - this time resulting in a loss of 2.56 %. :/

Keep on banging.

I also entered EUR/USD long, which is still holding steady after a odd day. AUD, NZD, GBP and CAD declined against the dollar, but interestingly EUR, CHF, gold and silver hold their space.

We shall see what will happen to my long.

Due to small sample of this test period, the AUD/JPY shattered...

Back to the everyday functions from Easter holidays.

This trade demonstrates the painful drawback of the passive approach the entry method I'm currently testing. Given, that I normally delete the orders if the Limit A is reached before the entry order is filled, if I'm around to do that (I was not - sleeping)

Fortunately for me, the movement was so rapid that FXCM kicked in with some positive slippage. My order was filled @ 84,293 instead of my entry price of 84,50....

And yet again I post the trade after it's closed (yes I'm a bit of a lazy bum).

I took this trade 28.3.2012 (EET).

I'll let the charts talk.

Initial risk: 1.16 %
Total P/L: +0,39 %
RRR: 1:3 :P

Maximum P/L from the move: 2+ %

To summarize: A small and little slobby trade.

I have been traveling for few days, and today I finally got back to my computer and had time to post this trade here. I entered GBP/USD short on 1.3. and it has been going swimmingly so far.

The butterfly pics are just for illustration. I don't trade them, but after Hektor sent me the harmonics pdfs, I've been spotting them.

Today GBP/USD took a huge plunge and I am tempted to close in my third position.

Hello again everyone. I've been busy with life stuff and demoing with hourly charts for a while and it has bee looong time my last pinbar live trade. But yesterday evening I spotted nice setup with gap up + pinbar on NZD/USD. Trading Station 2.0 makes spotting the gaps a real bitch, so I included a screenshot from StrategyTrader (Metatrader shows it as two candles, but it's definitely there). There's also a follow-up chart from this afternoon (EET)
