    hi
    yes, the morning NZD news. . .though my attention more to EurNzd range, more volatility. Harmful, but as a scalper want these attributes to a pair.
    Babysitting GbpUsd this morning, nearly killed me the boredom!
    vow I would rather see the price spike against me and struck my stopout than see 2 hours of 5 minute chart moving in 7 pips range or anything.

You state I have it now ! As a result of PF. I really like that DD dining table, whenever I feel myself getting into revenge or overtrade manner I try to remind myself where...
    quite true; at the beginning of Jan; I had a 10 percent DD in one day; and I'm still in the process of regaining it day in and day out.

    Instead of my mind focusing on profit; it is on regaining a loss. Mathematically they are the same; but plogically they are not

    the morning was GbpUsd, not too closely,
    the afternoon however was about EurUsd about the ECB conference.
    Started flat, then arrived the action, and I had been following this up.
    It'd be wonderful to have once in a while the easy way, lol, but I was quite OK with this too, as it's added another 0.5 percent to the day. Out of 9 entries, that is rather good, as there was only moderate drawdown. ( this time, unlike in the daytime).

    The chart could be a good example why usually have to stay flexible with all the TP when scalping.



    the day ended 0.89%, yet another good result, certainly this week is shaping the month nicely after the little -3% booked shedding day early on.
    Only for fun truth, 40 entries total today, for 9 lot volume ( 1x risk). . .the biggest size used was 0.25 lot. . .should answer the questions that there isn't that much variations there...

    happy trading!

    We began tutoring sessions by PF this week, and it had been fantastic.

    Today we had a fantastic time messaging on skype whilst scalping GU and EU. Draghi and Trump shaken Forex quite a little in the afternoon

    thanks PF

    Sounds fantastic Alpha, any tips you picked up that you can share (that is when PF agrees) ?

    Scalping round the EURO and USD yesterday during the speeches might have been a bit scary, a few volatility and you can't whether a big spike / tendency will begin as a result of someone saying something.

    Lol; PF have many golden tips.

    We haven't finished the training nonetheless. Something interesting I found that all of us share; is that Stop Losses are bad for counter-trend trading egies.

    Judging from your username; you likely concur with me on this

    Forgot to bring a point about SL.

    Not using SL also means you need to decrease your funding alloion. It will lessen your risk of loss; reduces your potential reward.

    Say for example you want to fade EU during news event; and you intend NOT to use a stop loss. So; your egy should er for a swing of 100 pips or 200 pips. You should not get wiped out with a 200 pips move against you.

    you not alone!

    I believe the emphasis is rather about which you cant blow off your entire account simply because a 20 pips additional spike beyond your own expectations.
    Simple put: commerce little!
