Thread: Take the money and run.....

    Take the money and run.....

    Going to start a journal.

    I will be trading EU exclusively trying to grab intra/interday trends.
    I will be using a three position egy using a modified stocastic, a MACD and a trend following indi like the GannHiLo. (One place based on each indior). I might have both long and short positons open at precisely the same time, so will be using a sub account in Oanda.

    Where this trading can differ from other approaches is I will be taking money off the table when a transaction is in profit and allowing the remainder run. I will post the transactions I create and their result here.

    Probably going to utilize the 1hr timeframe. I have yet to settle take profit or stop loss amounts, but am looking to tweak as time goes on.

    Is going to be trading demonion for your first couple of weeks, but this isn't for fun. I intend to make this egy online asap.

    More to follow along.
