    $2,500 - $1,000,000

    didn't check twitter yet, but I intended to take that trade through limit order.. however, I closed it before it got triggered due to the price action of usdx. I guess those old highs are just too tempting to be left alone by the market makers;) If USDX breaks below 94 then I would assume it...

    $2,500 - $1,000,000

    same here my limit sell order at 20 didn't get triggered by a few pips.. still keep it active for now, in case this turns out to be a S&D kind of story today.. just starting trading again today for this year.. not in a rush;) good luck cheers

    Cable&Fiber: Intraday Setups

    Haha No, I'm too much of a cheap ass for such a thing;) (my wife could tell you all about it..)

    Cable&Fiber: Intraday Setups

    those where all limit orders.. most weeks I'm lucky if one of them gets triggered. Yesterday they all got triggered (hence my "What seemed like an early christmas" comment) My focus is still on cable and fiber, but a few weeks ago I started to include some additional pairs into my weekly...

    Cable&Fiber: Intraday Setups

    GG had limit orders triggered on cable, USDYen, USDCHF, and Aussie. fibre would have been a manual entry.. but since all those orders got triggered I chosen not to.. I don't really like trading on mondays, and I normally hope for my orders not to trigger that quickly.. cable stopped me out...

    Cable&Fiber: Intraday Setups

    what seemed like an early christmas today, as limit order after limit order got triggered, has turned out into an extended exercise of firefighting.. trying to minimise losses and bailing on my trades as we are blowing through levels, which are destroying my trade ideas one by one;) Timing is...

    Typing Out Aloud: Japan, the Yen and the "Coming" collapse

    Interesting. I had similar thoughts in the past. It is also not limited to BOJ. Many CBs around the world have been on a shopping spree for not only Bonds, Currencies (to weaken their own), and more and more also stocks.. After a while I came to the conclusion, that the Centralbanks might...

    how about that pot for the winner in the cock competition..? Could use it.. just triggered my limit order for a fiber short at 1.2850.. stopped me out about a millisecond after the order got triggered.. D1 MS has changed in my books.. curious if we take out the lows anytime soon or if we have...

    a pot for the winner sounds great! I could really use it, as my trading still sucks;)

    is this forum all about dick comparison now? If it is, then I want to play too! I'm good at dick comparisons...;)

    Cable&Fiber: Intraday Setups

    AR: asian Range Yes now in retrospect I can see it clearly, too;) (I often disregard these tiny divergences, as it often turns out to be brokers-noise.. I do my analysis on Forex LTD and my execution on a different broker.. often the divergence on forex LTD didn't happen on my other broker's...

    wow was that a turtle soup at AR high..? I'd have to zoom in like crazy to see that (M5 or M1.. which is too low for me) or was there anything else that caused anyone to take this short at that price?

    Cable&Fiber: Intraday Setups

    well, now in retrospect, looking at those 300 pips.. I'm almost inclined to feel slightly pissed;) But then again, I'd rather invest that energy otherwise.. surprised how it slammed through that 1.6 figure without any bounce whatsoever..

    Cable&Fiber: Intraday Setups

    advice is always appreciated! I agree on the stops.. in this case I saw no way of price to come back up to BE as my entry was almost exactly at the top of the spike (50).. thats why I have moved my SL to BE (initial SL was at 30 pips).. this way it could have gone back up into the new OTE, and...

    Cable&Fiber: Intraday Setups

    haha well... I would not have minded to bag those pips.. but there will be more pips for me next week;) Still not sure if there was any fundamental reason for price to go back up there a second time.. maybe the black van outside my window notified my broker when I went to sleep?;) I didn't...
