Hmmm Daniel I had a look at Dolly... I think the R:R is not good for PA. Usually its 2:1 meaning risk 2 to gain 1? lol... but thanks. Useful to compare levels I have on other methods :)

haha, maybe, but looks good when its looking for entry levels ... Today i started looking for scalping on B N RY, started 30 usd real account, everything went good untill i had 160 usd profit, the configuration of MM that is working good on me is TF 15 min, not more than 20% equity for each trade, after having 160 usd i changed to 30% and reduced TF to 5 and 1 and .... went right back to beginning. But is very good instrument, and it seems that uses less spread?? maybe, but it uses spread, working hours for the strategy were on the afternoon, untill us market close, when everything is more calm down, and trends are just following. From GMT 14:00 - 17:00 after thatseems like spread kills you (all this on binary webpage you told me. but the key for me is TF 15min and not more than 20% account equity... this working good, thanks for showing this alternative ;)

Hiya Sheryle, John James, Joff, Daniel and all the others. Sup man? Took a bit of DD with my shorts, but starting to pay off... and the GBP crosses doing fine here lol. Tbh I dont expect much changes from tomorrow's UK MPC news. Most likely it will be the same votes again, no surprises there. We should look instead towards USA news that should be prime mover for this pair tomorrow. Just my thoughts
