There  price rejected with double top  on eur usd  target 1.1965. Re-entered short

 

I don't trade fx  like this on technical basis, technical analysis is unreliable.

 , no you are not missing anything, it was just another silly 'punt' against the trend with ridiculous risk. What happens is you spot a non existent pattern amongst the noise on a short-term time frame that completely ignores the long-term thrust, you draw a line that will trigger the trade and enter. Then you think about stop loss and see the prior high/low is 60 tick away so you say 'well that's trading accept it'. Ha.

 

This is not how counter trend traders work, they have a level where they expect price to reverse and as soon as price reverses at that level they enter, the stop is small, it's right there, they can practically reach down and touch it, it's usually just a few pip. If they are wrong they lose a few pip but if they are right the reward potential is huge, so they can be wrong 70% of the time and still be profitable.

 

That was not this trade, having got in at a level that seeming needed a 60 pip stop price immediately reversed against you, the bowels start to go loose, so then having put in a 60 pip stop you think err and bail out at minus 14.

 

This was actually the right thing to do after making a stupid entry, if a line was crossed to trigger a trade then if that line is crossed back over the validity of the trade is gone so just get out. So the 60 pip stop was fantasy, the proper stop was just behind the 'important' level that triggered the trade which wasn't actually important at all, not to any other trader on any time frame.

Situation

 

I sold it because the price action twice showed a rejection and the immediate trend line  was broken.Once again it proves technical analysis  and price action does produce profit.

 

The other reason was unfulfilled emotions, the pretenders who don't trade always claim there is no psychology involved in trading, I had unfulfilled emotions to short sell eur/usd.

On casey's advice I started using lagging indicators

Then I should have ignored all t/a , because it works in hindsight after the event.Now you guys can all be clever about it  after the event.I know all about hindsight analysis  and hindsight education.The trading forums are full of hindsight analysts.

 

Why hindsight trading is so easy compared to real-time trading

Hindsight analysis is very easy, real traders when they see an opportunity, they just place the trade.

 

Forum ***** on trade2win forum shows hindsight results, he is very profitable with hindsight results after the trades.

On forums you get pretenders, I am a trader on a live account.Real trading involves making decisions, I made and I lost.

 

BTW my account is up 200% this week so far  , trading the indices.

The euro usd is bullish based on latest price action

 

I have shorted the dax in place of trading eur us

 

It has made 2 very bullish up bars , so it is a buy until it breaks 11900

    • In the previous year, #bullrun2024 had been a trending hashtag as most crypto enthusiasts continually drooled over the prospects of witnessing another bull cycle. 2024 is finally here and so far so good has produced only fireworks. BTC has soared to 60k+, the market is green, and there’s a general sense that the bulls are returning. If there’s one thing that pays most in such bullish market, it is the flair to spot early gems and position oneself before a breakout. In that regard, Bitget has been my plug for a few years running. The early listing of $ORDI last year for instance before Binance listing 7 months after, and a surge ultimately is well documented. This year alone, Bitget has continued its wealth creation for users nicely, coins like $PORTAL, $GPT, $GTAI and so on have gone on to print for investors as depicted in the picture below. Web3 rewards not just active participation, but strategic positioning. There’s no gainsaying that the key to securing insane profits in this market is by positioning early and strategically too. Bitget’s eagle-eye for spotting early gem is a flex. Numbers don’t lie.  
    • Portal itself is awesome. Those who haven't got any airdrop, I think it's best time to accumulate for them.. tho, I'm gonna DCA....
    • Nope the hype is worth it. The project is dope itself as well as the team. Already deposited my bag at Bitget... Let's hope for the best 🤞
