I am still trading the S&P
For those who follow the blog, you’ve noticed that the past few weeks I’ve not put on too many S&P trades. The reason being is that it is too easy to lose on the S&P (well, that’s what I find but that could be because I’m not too hot a trader)… anyway, I have been ...

Stochastics cross on the USDCHF.. long at 10251
Ok, I’ve gone long on the USDCHF at 10251 with a trailing 50 pip stop. It’s 20 pips up so far but you never know what happens to the market… if I close now and bag 20 pips I may feel fab but if it shoots up more, I’ll kick myself. However, if the profits ...

My Forex trades for the day?
I made a couple of trades this morning… firstly the NZDJPY long at 81.20 with my trailing 50 point loss. The market did go up my way but hit 81.60 dead on before dropping.. I just needed 10 more pips and my stop would have moved to breakeven. However, the market fell like a stone ...

It?s sooo hard not to take a profit when you?re trading!
Yesterday I complained about the AUDNZD trade shooting through the roof after I had closed my trade. I said that I would enter new trades with a 50 pip trailing stop loss on my Forex trading. Well, last night, I found two more potential candidates in the Forex markets… the EUR/CHF and the EUR/JPY. Both charts had the ...

If only I held onto the AUDNZD trade!!! Blasted into space!
I was pretty smug this morning with 70 pips on the AUDNZD trade I made recently… I have just checked my Forex charts and this is what I see…. The market hit a peak of 1.2435 which is about 250 pips!!!! The thing about trading is that you can hold for greater moves or just get in ...

Busy with the Forex markets? NZDUSD and AUDNZD
The previous evening before I went to bed, I put on a couple of trades based on the stochastics cross method I’d been using lately. Firstly the NZDUSD short at 0.7820. I was probably a bit late in the entry as the trigger is a turn on the moving average trend indicator together with the stochastic ...

Another EURCHF entry!
After missing the ride on the previous EURCHF signals, I thought I would be disciplined and trade the signal properly this time.. not close out early to take a profit or loss but actually ride it all the way. Ok, I see the blue signal in the moving average trend indicator and also, stochastics cross.. a ...

What happened to the CHFJPY trade?
Actually I closed this trade yesterday for a 20 pip loss. As I mentioned, the signal wasn’t clean and I was a bit wary of trading it. As I previously mentioned, the stochastics had crossed but it hadn’t cross near the top for a short signal but near the 60 level. My short at 10075 got ...

My other trade today - short CHFJPY - not a clean signal, let?s see what ha
I also put in a short trade on the CHFJPY with a trailing 50 point stop loss. The market hit a double bottom at 100.18 and has bounced up to hit the 61.8% Fibonacci level. The stochastics have also crossed towards the downside. All looks good you may say.. however, I am not 100% confident ...

Where the S&P ended up (without me)
I thought I would post where the S&P ended up when I closed my trade early at 1382. I took 2 point when there was 8 for the taking!! Arrgh.. Anyway, it’s good to look back on the charts and see where it went wrong. The obvious exit would be when the S&P crossed below the ...
Emini trading - profitable but could have been more!
I went long at the break of the previous high in the S&P at around 1378… I actually got in at 1379.48 due to the spreadbetting spreads which you pay rather than their commission charges… they move their spreads about meaning that you can lose half a point (in S&P terms) per transaction… and upto ...
