I would not trade usd cad short trade recommendations .My reason is eur/usd /gbpusd is the only alternative to trade during dollar weakness.The spread on usd cad is higher and volatility can be low on loonie..It is called the loonie.It behaves like the loony in trading.


I traded the euro usd already today   for dollar weakness.The analysts other recommendations in last two weeks were ok.



RISK WARNING:no trading analysis, signal or advice  is guaranteed to make money, and the past performance  of an analyst  can be easily raise  false beliefs about future performance of signals . Past performance can't be easily misinterpreted by those new to trading who could follow a signals without proper due diligence on the validity of those analysis. It can also be misinterpreted and used incorrectly by experienced traders.


If you are new to trading please make sure you know the risk associated with your trade and don't simply follow a online signals, analysis  and recommendations.

Your charts are so covered in indicators as to be totally ambiguous and I certainly would not have picked that out. So you are just picking out random historical support levels and hoping they might be so again in the face of a 2 week down move.


Why not short at the most recent resistance level? Without any rationalisation your charts can mean anything  and nothing.

The beauty of charts is in the eye of the beholder.Even without indicators , which you are a master of, I can see  everything , it does not need narrative. Have you ever wondered, it may or may not be possible, that you may or may not suffer from Dunning Kruger effect?

Ma shapes have no relevance, it is total nonsense.It is just another cognitive bias to distort clear decision making.What relevance has an MA bounce, if used subjectively?All these beliefs about mas create biases.This is why this trade is a failure.The charts are clearly showing objective information with a brick wall support, not charge through it.:smileylol:


The chart shows a range.You should be buying here at support.




cognitive bias refers to a systematic pattern of deviation from norm or rationality in judgment, whereby inferences about other people and situations may be drawn in an illogical fashion. Individuals create their own "subjective social reality" from their perception of the input


Cognitive biases distort trading decisions

No professional would use that , as you said in one of your posts, analysis is not for trade signal. Professionals can see clear charts without mas.In your case, you can't call one trade in advance , with that t/a bs. In my case I call trades almost every day in advance, but not only that I post trade able systems.


In your case you will always remain a technical analysis teacher .Those who can do, those who can't teach technical analysis,.

Most professionals are using it, that is precisely why price responded directly at it, because the professionals saw it and bought at those levels thus moving price up. 


Call trades? but the same old pattern is emerging, many calls are just forgotten about, what happened to them?, we can only guess. You do crow about the winners though but there is a problem with them as well. You say you are routinely risking 30 tick but usually come up with a win of 16 tick or 40 tick, what kind of a risk reward ratio is that?


The only reason you feel compelled to call trades in the first place is because of the ridiculous claims you make for these amateur 'professional' strategies you roll out one after the other that have been raked up out of some losers forum like 'trade2win'. I make no such claims, I am not peddling any 'strategy' and so don't feel any need to post trades. People can take my posts on TA or leave them, what do I care?

The problem is you don't understand professional trading and how professionals trade probabilities.I only want 20 to 30 ticks profit, I don't care if the market is giving 500  ticks.If I can make my highest probability ticks every week, like 100 a week, I will soon be a compounding billionaires.


How to become a billionaire from trading/ compounding billionaires on t2w





A trader can earn a 50 ticks consistently a week from trading , a trader can become a billionaire in 12 years.Compound profits on a weekly basis ,  a low risk method with low draw downs of less than 200 pips , and maximum 30 ticks risked per trade.On three lots risk is 90 pips or $900 per trade on a $100,000 account.

3 positions * 50 ticks a week  * 1 lot , compound it on a weekly basis.

Here is a profitable method to make 100 ticks a week.

If you would get rid of the moving average nonsense , fib bs and all that , you would have made money.The trade already broken down.It is very similar to when you screwed up on Dax long trade, in buy the dip.At the least the analyst got two trades right.


In your case it is just hindsight and scew up.This trade long is another of your screw ups.

You know absolutely nothing about my trades but knowing nothing has never stopped you from commenting on anything else so no surprise there.


Levels such as MA's, support and resistance, trend and channel lines and Fibs are all I need. You on the other hand obliterate price  with every lagging indicator you can find (including at least 5 MA's, it's hard to count them all), what makes it more laughable is that you use an EA to draw it all for you, presumably because you are unable to do it yourself.

The indicator does everything for me, saves me all the work every day , that indicator cost $400 to make.Why keep a cow when you get free milk?Does not make sense.It does not mean I have to drink milk everyday, I can be vegan when I like .


Now  you are free to sell it on tradecity.com after compiling it and renaming it.

    • Gold Elliott Wave Technical Analysis Function - Counter-Trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Triangle for wave 4 Position -Wave 5 Direction - Wave 5 is still in play Details - Gold broke out of the triangle to confirm the end of wave 4. Prices are now expected to rally in wave 5. It appears the price is in wave iii (circled) of 5 which could extend to 2500 and above. Gold has made a decisive breakout from its over 2-month consolidation range by moving higher in early July 2024. This breakout signifies a continuation of the bullish trend initiated in September 2022. In the near term, a pullback is likely before Gold resumes its ascent to reach new all-time highs.   Examining the daily chart, we see that the supercycle wave (IV) of the long-term bullish trend, which began in December 2015, has been completed. Following this, Gold embarked on a new impulse wave (V). Within wave (V), waves I and II were completed in May and October 2023, respectively. Gold is currently in wave (3) of III, which has the potential to extend beyond 2500 before it concludes. The recent over 2-month sideways movement represents wave 4 of (3). The current upward movement is part of wave 5 (3), expected to break through to new all-time highs. Consequently, the bullish potential for Gold remains robust. This provides an opportunity for buyers to enter new positions on pullbacks.   On the H4 chart, we can observe the sub-waves of wave 5 of (3) as they unfold. It appears that Gold has completed the first two sub-waves, waves i and ii (circled), and is currently advancing in wave iii (circled). As long as Gold trades above 2293 in the near term, the bullish outlook remains intact, and buyers are likely to continue buying on dips.   The analysis indicates that Gold's bullish momentum is set to continue, driven by the completion of key wave structures and the potential for new highs. Traders should monitor the price action closely, particularly during pullbacks, to identify optimal entry points for long positions. As the market progresses, it will be essential to watch for the completion of wave iii (circled) and subsequent sub-waves to confirm the ongoing bullish trend. With careful analysis and strategic positioning, traders can capitalize on Gold's upward trajectory in the coming months.
