ICT Optimal Trade Entry & Bullish Order Block Candidate

FX:GBPUSD   British Pound/U.S. Dollar
I will be monitoring this potential setup this week heading into Monday & Tuesday. We have Fed Rate release on Wednesday so much like last week, I will anticipate my weekly quota before Wednesday's fundamental economic driver.

If we exhibit strong bullish technical at a ICT Killzone being London Open and or New York             Killzone I will look for a "bounce", not a bottom to post in Cable. Longer term we are going lower folks.

Still trying to get familiar with this platform folks... as I do, I will increase my use of it. ;)

I'm really glad you're beginning to move away from MT4. Eventually, you'll find it more efficient and powerful than most of the tools out there. I stick to just a handful of "drawing tools" which include "Ray", "Horizontal Ray", and "Fib Retracement". I love how you can customize each tool and save your settings as a "template". You'll also find that you can easily overlay charts and invert them, if necessary.

That is also a quasimodo (over and under pattern).

Wonderful to see you posting here on TV again Michael - very much appreciated - as are all your MM series so far :)

is it the break above the 1.5023 that enticed you to look for a short bounce i.e. possible MS shift?

Hello Michael and thank you very much for your contributions. I put something together and I was hoping it aligns with your thinking. I so love seeing harmonic patterns line up with OTE's and IOB.....its a beautiful thing....your thoughts greatly appreciated and ty again....

Whether you follow like a sheep or use your own head, IOB + OTE are huge concepts. While I didn't get my desired harmonic target hit, clearly Michael was thinking in the right direction and his insight/input are very valuable, just look at what followed...

according to the chart he posted above he never got an entry. Plus a myfxbook showing a 76% drawdown says a heck of a lot more about his methods then a single trade.

His post probably put a bottom in the market.....lawls.

Fwiw, I used to trade with a pro who used to buy 61.8 tags (like this one) without question, recon Mtn would have been filled but OTE Sweet Spot'ers (70.5) would have been left behind - It happens. Point here is there was lots of valid reasons to be hunting longs (IOB, OTE, Inv H&Sh yada yada yada), it was indeed the correct idea and Michael brought it to our collective attention. How on earth can you fault him here?

Thanks again Michael, and any time you want to let us know what you may be thinking in the market, I for one will be all ears :)

I am not faulting him for this trade idea but you are giving him credit for a trade that never hit his entry. I am faulting him for being a "guru" who makes outlandish claims (check his twitter feed) while publicly blowing up an account and then deleting it.

Indeed, not filled per the chart.
Doesn't necessarily mean he didn't get a fill in his own account though (unless he uses FXCM).

finally getting around to calling live trades...? Posting hindsight analysis over the last few years finally give you enough confidence to try again after the myfxbook disaster of 2013?

What happened exactly on myfxbook?
-1 Reply
He had a great big following on a forex forum and decided to make a myfxbook with the goal of turning $5000 into $1 million dollars in 36 months. Well a month later he had a 76% drawdown and rage quit the forum and deleted his myfxbook. That was back in 2013.

Hi Nuseii - the MyFxBook incident is widely documented and understood as my intentional goal of scaring any of the Babypips forum members from piggybacking my trades, at that time. I was teaching concepts that would fair rather impressively and not require the handholding of a Mentor - which teaches little actually.

You are hearing one side of the truth and the intentional drawdown was quickly recouped and let's just say it's rather well and good now. You will undoubtedly see more from this fella as he made his career on Babypips parodying my character there. I didn't rage quit the forum, but I did find my effort there wasted on unsavory folks. In the end, I deleted my links and videos and moved my efforts to FxGears.com. I have taught more there for free and post on my personal website and youtube channel.

I'd recommend just watching for yourself and judge who the real Trader is here. I'm not going to brag on here... but I do show my trades on Twitter. Some find them to be something hard to believe and that's not a goal of mine to convince you or anyone else. It's my goal to teach what I do, freely and see what you the readers can do with it.

Lol!!! ICT only began saying he purposefully blew up his account after he needed a reason to leave without it looking like he got whipped. The only verified performance he has is an account at 76% drawdown. One can scroll through other myfxbooks of people who have "learned" from mike and will see similar horrible performance. The guy spent two years at babypips with thousands of followers, yet I saw not a single one that could evidence of being profitable. This guy is a joke.

If you're going to throw down critique like that, it would be great if you would critique the methods being taught. Aside from the debate about fundamental versus technical, what about his technical teachings (specifically) do you think is a "joke."

ICT puts out an incredible amount of totally free content and does not want any money from his students. It's easy to throw stones Banker, so if you were to look at the technical methods he teaches, specifically which ones are a joke. Is it order blocks, s/r, fibonacci retracements, identifying stop loss locations? Help all the readers here out with something more useful than "this guy is a joke."

Anyone can pick up a book on trading techincals and find similar if not identical ideas... Then make videos and re-gurgitate the material in a forum to gather a following.

What makes him a joke is the fact he does that, then makes claims like he did on the forum and now on Twitter that he's taken a couple grand account to $800k in nine months.... Yet when he try's to demonstrate it, he blows his account up, then rage quits.

Trading isn't about techincals or fundamentals... It's about using both, and the lack of depth spent in his teaching what actually moves and creates what you see on the charts is extremely lacking...

Look, if he had re-couped the losses on the account in question regarding the myfxbook, all he has to do it put it back on myfxbook for everyone to see that he actually recovered the loss and actually did draw it down on purpose. It's been two years and he hasn't... Judging by the chest beating he obviously likes doing in Twitter, he would flaunt it if he got it. So the fact he still can't show a profitable myfxbook tells volume...

If the day comes where he can show any kind of account growth coming anywhere close to what he has claimed, then I'll be the first to apologize and I'll join in the chants of adoration....

And to ICT:

Don't worry.... No one will be seeing any more of me in your trading idea comments. Saying anymore then I have will be beating a dead horse, so this will be my last comment on your trades.

Good luck good trading ;)
