20151123 GBPUSD

Hi Traders,

Here is an example of 5 trades I did on the GBPUSD today. Looking for another touch on the purple line. Will then ride the trend down for longer.

Remember there are news coming out of the US later. Pretty sure it will involve news about their rates. Will create volatility. Keep an eye on your trades later. BUT also a good way to make plenty cash.

20151113 EURUSD

Hi Traders,

Did two trades with my "Purple" system on this pair today.



Up around 120 PIPs for the day. Been a bit lack luster for a Friday.

The black trade was a small 5 PIP grab. Was hoping for a bigger move but it wasn't going to happen. Didn't want to hold the trade so I checked out early.
I still think that price might move higher today on this pair after some consolidation.

The blue trade was a better one which had some legs grabbed 18 PIPs

PS. If you need my help with trading I will answer any question that I am able to. I want to see you guys succeeding too.

My Favourite System (This trade happens to be on the EURJPY)

Hi Traders,

My simple easy system! I call it "Purple" after my wife's favourite colour.

Always makes me PIPs, just a question of 10, 20, 30, 50. 80, 100...


Follow the numbers below to match the chart! Please note we open the trade on the start of the second bar marked as "1". So you have to be quick but that comes with practice.
  1. Second bar of a new series on the M15. In this case a Negative bar/Bear bar/Sell bar.
  2. Is this indicator pointed in the same direction? It has to! If it happens to be the second bar it is Awesome, capital A.
  3. Is the PSAR & trend indicator "pointed" as a sell signal too? It has to!
  4. We open the trade!
  5. We look for a minimum of 10 PIPs. In most cases you can let it run further sometimes up to 100 PIPs. There are various ways to determine this. 
  6. In the beginning I did 4 ~ 10 trades per day of 10 PIPs.
  7. You do the Grade1 math. That is easy dough!
Inbox me for details & price. Pay what you want. Make me an offer, I have sold a system before, for a jar of "Chili Sauce".
 
You can do it too!

20151105 EURJPY

Hi Traders,

Shared my favourite system the last 2 days. Can see that it really is my old faithful.

So I thought I would share one of my other systems. I call it "Break & Bounce New", as there is a "Break & Bounce", which is awesome but I prefer the new one, more setups.


It is simple! We look for a bar that straddles the EMA or touches it. Then we confirm if that bar is a bull/bear bar? (The Purple circles). We then simply look at my indicator below to see if it agrees with the direction of the bar? 
We also agree that the blue line agrees with us? We enter then on the open of the Pink circled bar. We look for a 10 PIP move but it is normally 20 PIPs plus. So three Bull or three Bear "signs" & we have a go on the open of the pink circles! (Distance between blue-gray dashed line is 20 PIPs)


Really simple really awesome!


My other system I simply call "Arrow" is even more basic! Does the Arrow & Indicator from the 3rd Window below match? Green + Green = trade, Red + Red = Trade. Any other combo = no trade! We can see that the green Arrow matched the Green bar which we cant actually see, but we know it changed from green to red as we can see the red bar. So the next Arrow will have to be red for a trade. Even works when its choppy or ranging. Look for Orange circles. Schweeet!

I like using what they call Harami, I call it Engulfed bar setups as well which I trade in the same direction as my 1st window indicator. Simple fun & easy. No stress.

My Morning Trades

Hi Traders,

Thought I would post my trades again. These are only from my one system.

I always aim for a minimum of 10 pips & anything above that is a bonus. Then I aim for a minimum of 4 trades. Anything above that is a bonus. Normally I end up with 10/12 trades or so.
Per day I aim for 40 pips. I end up with about 120 minimum per day normally.


I would suggest following these traders (email me fort their names) as I do believe they make it look so easy. Inspired me to look for easy & profitable trades. Thanks guys!

My Morning Trades...

Hi Traders,

My morning trades. Only the trades from one of my systems. I did not include the PSAR trades or Arrow trades or EMA trades.

Could stop for the day as I am tired but I am sure we will pick up another 3 minimum of these trades today.

Making money is easy if it is something that is important to you!

Money should not rule your life or be the basis for every decision but it sure as hell makes life so much easier.

20151027 GBPUSD Update

Hi Traders,

Update on the previous post.

I did close the trade for a pip count of 48.

In the picture below you will see that there is an orange horizontal line. On my D chart that is the low of a bar that straddled my main MA-type-indicator. Not only that but my other indicators show that there could be a move down. You know what they say if it looks, smell, taste like chicken it could be chicken!

I do not trade on the D charts but only on the M15 so I did exit the trade. Will keep an eye on this one, pretty sure it could be a pip count of 100 minimum. BUT you would have to be able to leave the trade untouched.

Lets go find some more trades!





20151027 GBPUSD

Hi Traders,

Did something different today entered a M15 trade based on what I saw on my D chart.

Normally I would have grabbed the 10 to 30 pips that this trade did this morning but I am going to let it run to see if it wont go further south?

According to my D chart price will fall further tomorrow.


Let's go find some more trades!

20151026 EURUSD

Hi Traders,

Been a lack luster day. Should pick up soon after the start of the "US Session".

Finally at peace with my strategies & pips I am making. Took time to "unclutter" my screens & strategies. Like having to part with family when I deleted some of my old indicators & strategies.

Finally ready to share them. Let me know if you are keen?


Had about 4 trades today, looking for another 4.

Have fun & make Pounds!

20151013 NZDUSD

Hi Traders,

Awesome day for trading!

Hope you made a killing too?

Added a NZDUSD trade that I did. Dont trade the NZDUSD or AUDUSD that much, don't trust those pairs during my trading hours just like I will not trust a ref from those countries. Rugby joke.

From tomorrow I will be trading on the DAILY time frame too not just the M15.

Let's go find some more tomorrow morning!

20151012 GOLD

Hi Traders,

Took an early Monday morning trade.

Bank holiday in Japan, Canada & America BUT it has not been to bad. Hope it picks up after 1400 or 0800EST.

Notice my screens have changed. It has been a long year & now I am only focusing on 3 different setups on my charts.
3 Weeks left in October & 4 Weeks in November. I normally wing it in December as the kids & wife are home.

Lets go find more!

PS. Closed a nice long on EURJPY while I was typing this, kewl!

20151007 GOLD

Hi Traders,

First update in about a month. Sorry...


Had a good month, changed my screen a bit. Out with the clutter & in with the smoother. Also decided to only focus on trades where I can have alerts with my indicators/setups. Can be tiring watching charts & missing trades. I never enter a trade late, don't like being late to a party or chasing waterfalls.

Very happy!

Here is to making many more pips. Such a busy morning, hope you got some of the action too.

Regards!

20150909 GOLD

Hi Traders,

Tested a new strategy today. Used the EMA setting from another trader & then added my trusty indicators!

Very excited but it is still the 1st day. Made some good pips.

Will give it another run tomorrow. Goes against my normal instincts to use Pivots. Relying on my over bought & over sold indicator.

Grabbed a decent trade this morning, very happy.

20150907 GOLD

Hi Traders,

Another day where price might not do as expected. US Bank Holiday; Bank Holidays in US or big holidays in the UK or EU always has an effect on the market. Keep your trades tight & do not take risky trades. Have patience & that trade that you want to take will come along.

Not a bad trade considering the Bank Holiday. Only a few trades today. Will wait until a little bit later to see if we cant grab something closer to the end of day trades.


Looking forward to this week picking up. Looking forward to the ZAR weakening!

A thought for today... Why is it always the people who you do not want to spend time with that always want to make plans or will get upset when you cancel on them? Then you have to lie. I don't feel bad about the lie I have to tell them but the fact that honesty will be to much for them.

Lets go wait for another!

20150904 GBPUSD

Hi Traders!

Grabbed a small trade this morning, only about 11 pips profit.

Quiet before the storm. Everybody awaiting the NFP at 1430 local time.

On days like these it can be that price does not always do as it is suppose, so enter trades with caution.

20150903 GBPJPY

Hello,

Another awesome move & grabbed it. Did more than one of these this morning.

***If trading is difficult for you it could mean more than one thing for example:

  • Do you practice patience?
  • Do you force trades?
  • Do you listen to your indicators & price action OR do you try to predict the price?
  • Are your systems good enough or suited to your level of experience?
  • Are your trades to big? (I believe in this. FUCK baby steps! Take adult steps! Life is short! Jump in & learn to swim. There are no differences between small & a large trade if traded according to your rules. But it is stressful if you risk 33% of your capital on a single trade. Done it, lived it, stressed for 30 minutes watching USDZAR. Hope it makes sense? Try to become a big trader but not a trader of a big chunk of your capital).
Being in this game since 9 March 2009, I can say it takes patience, an understanding of your indicators/price action & practicing like crazy.
I love trading & I don't want to do anything else. I can stare at charts 24/7/365. I wish I had friends who I could talk Forex with 24/7/365. But they are far & few. Most people just want some great free advice & they are gone.


If you want to become better at trading it will take time & practice. All the "stuff" you need is right there waiting to be Googled! I have never paid for anything. Plenty of brilliant free stuff on the net.


Do the following:

  • Go onto Webinars. Most of them are sales pitches but write down key things like what is price action etc. I have spent plenty of data & time on these, but don't be afraid when the selling starts to log out.
  • Go to Seminars. Once again most of them are sales pitches with words like "ultimate" or "millionaire", write down key trading ideas. (try to find someone who is trading. ignore their philosophy on trading, try to find out what they know about indicators as an example).
  • Google. (that shit is free, use it!) Use key words/phrases like, "best free scalping indicator of 2010", or "non repainting trend indicator" etc.
  • Register & spend about 30 minutes a day on sites like www.babypips.com, www.forexfactory.com or www.dukascopy.com, great sites with free free free stuff & yes once again use their "search" function. Just like me there are plenty of successful traders just waiting to help someone, who cant wait to make a buddy, share some info to prove we are good or outshine another trader. (speaking of outshine, my favorite short story... I once shared a Sunday afternoon with this trader who claimed to be one of the top 5 traders in South Africa. When I could not tell him my ranking, he had this condescending smile on his face & he said. "pay me & I will teach you". Anyway he was showing me his system & balance that he had accumulated after almost two decades in the trade. Not bad but I will do much better, I know this. Claiming all indicators are rubbish & you have to trade on long time frames like Weekly bars. I agreed to avoid getting into a spat as both of us had valid points & I understood that not one shoe fits all. But in my head I was thinking your dumb ass opinions have cost you plenty of Dollars. Couple of days later he stated that he was going to buy/long the GBPUSD based on his weekly chart. I indicated that I too was looking at the weekly chart for the same pair but I would wait about 2 or 3 weeks before doing that as they would go lower before the buy opportunity was there based on my indicators. I needed a hell-yeah before I pulled the trigger on a big trade. Needles to say we had a public spat on Facebook. I was thrown out of the group. BUT I did follow his trade... Needles to say he was stopped out after 2 weeks & about 3 weeks later the price was right to buy. Should have emailed the fucker, "young Grasshopper will teach your ass").
  • Read my blog! Try to be my friend. Just kidding but it could be a great start. FYI, I sometimes give away free stuff, paying it forward or something like that. Please don't abuse my kindness, "I will find you", think "Taken".

New System (Daily Bars)

Hi Traders,

Given myself some work but hey it will mean more & easier cash!

Will take this week to test a system that will work on the Daily bars. Might be easier for traders with other jobs to enter & monitor trades when they don't have to watch 15M or even 4H OHLC bars.


Should also be a rewarding & confidence building way to enter the world of trading.

Lets do it!





20150831 GOLD

My Screen & Systems

Hi,

I can hear all the traders say. "Your screen is to busy". "You should use Stop Levels". "To many indicators". I can hear all of their complaints. Noted & filed under, "It works for me".

Well I trade to make money. I don't expect to loose a trade. I use various systems which use various indicators. I hate flipping between templates or even time frames. So...... when I designed my systems I did it with this in mind & made sure I would get my trades per day that I needed without having to flip between templates or time frames.

I enjoy sitting at my screen from early to late. Probably because I dislike most people & I hate having to make small chat.

Currently I use the following systems- They all have 2 or 3  things in common, I guess. One indicator in common which gives me a valid trade from a fake trade.
  • Fractal
  • Pivot
  • PSAR
  • Second Bar
  • Purple
  • Engulf
  • Body Engulf
  • Bounce & Break
  • Lakota (name being changed to River Jetez)
I only trade on the following pairs-
  • Gold
  • Ger30
  • EurJpy
  • EurUsd
  • GbpUsd
  • GbpJpy
  • GbpChf
  • UsdDkk
  • UsdNok
  • NzdUsd
  • AudUsd
  • UsdZar (do not currently trade this pair as my broker is way to expensive with this pair but they make up for it with good spreads on the other pairs. Next to Gold & Ger30 UsdZar are my favourites. Easy predictable money.)
Leave a comment or email me if you would like to know more about my systems or perhaps the broker that I use or have used.

It is all about PATIENCE. Not predicting the price, letting the current price tell you the story.

Have fun making money!



20150825 Gold

Hi,

Took this trade first thing this morning.

The idea was to let it run only until the Mid level. Decided to take profit on the next 15M bar. Turned out great.
