    Tearlach, if you are departing before 150 pips, how much of a profit would you target with each transaction?

    his principles spook me a little -- but that is my style I like banging out the singles/doubles rather than looking for the house runs

    I'd rather miss a large move than see a wonderful profit evaporate

    the 150 pip egy can work at times, but this month was chy

    from the 12 effective trades, just 3 cracked 150 pips

    Beau recommends moving your stop to breakeven once you are ahead 75 to 100 pips

    I am considering carrying one lot off at 50 or 60 pips -- moving the stop to 25

    but, with time (i.e., experience), maybe I'll get more comfortable with Beau's trade mgmt -- I am convinced he has the background to back up his egies

    But look at those entries! Clearly there's worth in those TRLs -- would not you agree? And based on recent performance, I am just going to focus on the euro and cable


    disclaimer: I am only an advanced beginner at this -- keep that in mind

    V
    that I know just how you feel. Trying to learn this Foreign Exchange business and the old standard of cut your losses and let your profits run only did not work for me. Running 3 demo accounts doing so all began sucking large time (2 that is). That cash that was humorous was treated by me . They'd of had me committed if anyone aside from my wife had noticed I was with this digital cash. I used not wonderful language in loud tones and, and , and.... MY WIFE stated Why not take the profits when you are up? I spend my entire life in front of the computers viewing the blue and red bars girate all day and all evening. Soooo - in my demo that is 10,000 when I was up, I began to take the cash. Named the account after her Macro-Mai. Months got that sucker up . And by accepting anything when the market began to turn back on me. Declines as best as I could with 2 -10 pip even and profits some even-stevens. I'm picker and a bottom and that creates a lot of emotional turmoil. I find that I'm greedy and don't wish to give away that high or bottom 40 - 150 pips. Measure in Elliott Wave. Because of topping and bottom I'm entering into a lot of 1st waves. They are generally fixed a fantastic deal and that I see within this marketplace a terrific quantity. Really where stops can get hit trying to allow it to 12, this is. If you exchanged C waves and 3rd waves it would be no sweat. (Just reading this makes me want to change my trading habits). Personally it may be chickens...t but that the cash will be in the bank by taking profits. When you do wake up and by chance get yourself into that 3rd or C tide chase price up and shield. I guess this is where limitations will work. Just see 200 and can't take 50. Feel I've missed something.
    Hope that this helps and good trading.


    P.S. Any consolation I'm batting 1,000 this week. Everything is gone and wrong!

    if you are not as big a coward as mepersonally, 100 pip take profit might be brighter -- the average of the nine winning transactions (with lt;150 pip profits) is only over 99 pips, and five out of the nine were for 99 pips or greater

    I should probably place a 50 stop Once the price reaches 100

    Have you currently Beau's view on this egy? Merlin what is your take on adjusting the stops? I am getting desperate I am down $1000!! As sure as I alter the egy though it will go yard. That was my fortune so far. I intend to just stick until word from Beau.

    I agree the best thing to do is to follow the rules. As we all know from our college days rules exist to be broken . If you are going to break the rules, its preferable to do to take profit when it's staring you in the facelike cancelling a stop loss. I repeat however, that the best thing to do is follow the rules.

    Group I think now is the time to go long here 3:50pm EST.. Wait for retrace to 1.1910 - 25 degree and ride this infant greater. The downer is dunner!


    P.S. Watch to your sideways shuffle at this time of day. Correction might take some time for entrance.

    A plogical take profit is as a plogical stop reduction. IMHO, it is better to learn and understand time/price movements and compared to exchange those movements as opposed to choosing it has to go 150 pips.

    As far as the euro goes....there were a lot of pips on the table. Count the pips on the swings of the hourly chart. If your machine or egy didn't create pips with swings, you might want to think about egies or egies.

    What could you reccommend?

    As far as the euro goes....there have been a great deal of pips on the table. Count the pips on the swings of the chart. In case your system or egy didn't create positive pips with swings, you may want to consider alternative egies or egies.
