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

hmmm shorts will come, but now if you look at daily chart, is impossible to go down today, is forming one of those candle formation, that are showing us a possible change of trend down, i think we will have to wait for next big GBP News of tomorrow, but as it looks right now i think trend is changing to short.

Hi again Daniel :D How you been man? About your analysis... Yea D1 and W1 is still trying to make a "top" before heading down, though lower TF like H1, H4 and H12 says a top has already been made and price will head down. Hmmm I am playing the crosses though not just GBPUSD
Daniel Lüchinger
Daniel Lüchinger Oct 21, 2014 03:52PM GMT
Hi Blue Whisper, everything cool, waiting for news to come ... i think GBPUSD should target 1.6010 or near before going up, like a "confirmation below". I am with other pairs too, i'm working a 11 pairs basket that are actually 8 pairs on profit 3 unprofitable, now waiting for GBP to go down to close all of them, or aitn for a possible correction up to close them. I am targeting 200 TMA on 1.6008 or near for GBPUSD at 4H TF.
Daniel Lüchinger
Daniel Lüchinger Oct 21, 2014 03:57PM GMT
not TMA, i am using HMA 200, complete config i use is HMA 16, HMA 34, HMA 50, HMA 200. HMA for Hull Moving Average. ;)

That's awesome and yes I would be looking to see if 1.6120, 1.6070 then 1.6030 falls first - if yes then it will try to challenge 1.6 psychological level, and take profits in between and let winners run :) And yes, playing the crosses (if you know what to look for), is a nice way of keeping your equity afloat when u are in some DD on this pair. Remember though that news is like a catalyst event... I call it jackpot time :D Make it or break it lol. Another thing is, I am not yet certain if we are seeing a trend change yet. Will just assume current trend holds, plus some corrections for now

That the pound did not collapse on today's data just shows that forex traders don't really know what is going on. The UK's deficit has risen 10% so far over 6 months but it was supposed to fall 10%. For reference, the US deficit closed the year down a solid 29%. The UK can never raise interest rates because the government cannot afford it! Also it will destroy the economy as the housing market will collapse. Long term the UK faces serious problems and the pound will reflect this when the penny drops.

It looks more like buy than a sell ,but it's always better to wait for almost 100% guaranteed signals .

The 10am 'existing home sales' news due for today, could create a buy boom vacuum. At least to 1.62 what's your views guys?
