The trade is active. See my previous post for further analysis. Not going to go in depth in this post. USDJPY touched my green box (buy zone), but did not pull back as much as I expected. I did not open the trade until it bullish price action following ~110.655 support hold. 1D: https://www.tradingview.com/x/trNcP1Ue/ 1M: ...

USDJPY - potential long entry, but with trading flexibility

Looking especially at the Month chart below illustrates a flexible trading approach is beneficial in times of prolonged indecisive price action. Pick your moments, scale in to trades, adjust position size, selectively take risk off the table, protect gains when there is possible reversal. The trick is to do all that without being reactive. Make calculated ...

NZDUSD - Short Entry

Bearish reversal price action at TL resistance. Entered partial short position. NZDUSD could easily re-test resistance offering better entry R/R. That is the reason I decided to scale in. The 1W & 1D below determined my bias. 1H and 4H determined entry point. Trade was triggered a couple hours prior to this post and the entry point looks a little different ...

EURJPY - Watch for sell set up

Watching for sell opportunity. See longer term charts below for direction justification. To open a short position, I'm looking for either: 1) A clear DN trend on 1H chart (will require break of 122.5 support area) OR 2) Reversal price action if EJ moves to red box zone on chart If it is #2 scenario, I would most likely ...

SUPN - Collar for protection

Bought SUPN at $5.65 as an investment, not a trade. In the past I have used collars to provide downside protection. Last collar expired last December. Collars should only be used in limited situation and timing them correctly is very important. It's only truly in hindsight that you can determine if the collar was a good decision. Last two collars worked out ...

EURJPY - Trade Journal Record

Have been watching EURJPY and USDJPY. Both interesting. Patiently waiting to see if a good entry develops for USDJPY. Decided to go long EURJPY for the time being. I liked the ST set up a little better. Trading a smaller position size to allow me to also trade UJ and/or make adjust to this trade. There is risk of a pullback.

USDJPY - WATCH - At the moment, too soon to be bearish.

Seems like the majority of traders are short. I understand the motivation. Strong bullish move, now UJ is up against strong support, it's easy for a trader to short in expectation of a correction. The shorts may end up getting it correct, but you shouldn't remove the possibility of a bull continuation. I'm neutral for the moment, but my bias is more bull than ...

Look at 1M & 1W chart below. They paint the picture really well for LT price action. Could see move to 1.150 or more. 1M: https://www.tradingview.com/x/6OjTFeNe/ 1W: https://www.tradingview.com/x/TTcdTFBr/ 4H: https://www.tradingview.com/x/P9YBTXTy/ ST price action should determine entry point.

Active trade, but only a partial position open at this time. I lacked patience and discipline with this trade. I knew it at the time and that was the reason for only opening a partial position. In hindsight, it was still a poor decision and I should have remained on the side lines. I've lacked some patience this week in a few trades and it's especially true ...

In long. Somewhat crowded trade. Got in a little early. Long @ 112.156. Current SL @ 111.79. Potentially it will move to protect gains as the trade continues. S.T. UJ is showing some bearish price action. Expect there will be some trade management as this develops. See charts below for trade set up. 1M: Reversal/Bullish price action ...

EU Caution - Potential Short Entry, but mixed signals

At first glance, seems like a good short entry. However, this is not a straight forward trade. There was the gap up followed by indecision. EU has bumped up against some key resistance zones, but also hasn't reversed course (see 1D chart below). At this price, I am more prone to go short, although I'm hesitant to open a trade with the current mixed price ...

This post is purely to document my trade to help me continue to grow as a trader. I am a profitable trader. Even though I am up 30.9% since 1/1/2016, I feel I have had little growth. Tradingview.com has been helpful especially documenting trades. What has been missing, however is thoughtful feedback from other traders. I welcome any thoughtful feedback or ...

Where is the bottom? I absolutely DO NOT have the answer. Volume corresponding to GILD price is interesting. I don't often look at 1M, but it does give an interesting perspective. Short interest is .98%. I'ts been dropping since 2013. 1W: https://www.tradingview.com/x/lWHa1o4d/ 1M CELG Comparison: https://www.tradingview.com/x/WXfHDDzZ/

As mentioned in last short trade entry, EU was looking prime for a long entry. I entered long at 1.06813. Current SL is 1.0635. I have room within my trading plan to lower the SL to 1.062. That is assuming I don't add to my position. I don't expect this to go straight up to TP. There will probably be opportunities to add (or adjust) ...

I'm in short. HOWEVER, this is a short term trade. If you look at the 1W & 1D below, I can't be bearish unless there is a break of the TL. Based on 1h & 4h charts, EU failed to make a HH and bearish price action (rejection at resistance). Looking to capture ~30 pips and then get out. 1W: https://www.tradingview.com/x/PnOVnSVK/ 1D: ...

USDJPY looks like it will bounce a bit off of supports. This is a high risk trade. If you take a look at 1D chart below, UJ corrections commonly are much more pronounced than what has occurred thus far. Thus, you could make a case to look for a short entry especially around 103.5 - 103.8 area. For that very reason, I am keeping a tight SL. 1D: ...
