15-i am trying not to trade the last half hour of london as it usually does opposite of what i think so right at the close it made this push up, i shorted right at 50, it broke higher -7
16-spiked up hard again i shorted 61 again as i felt it had to pullback and pay me exited 56 +5
17-bought with the trend at 50 and zoom it went up got yellow i closed at 64 +14 and
18-shorted to 61 +3.
Nice finish to the week. have a great relaxing weekend.
5-seems this wants to push down i shorted at 14, it gave me yellow to exit and buy but i thought it was breaking lower and ignored it, only to watch it go back up i exited at 13 +1.
6-same exact trade but this one broke, got yellow and exited at 98 +16
7- took the buy at 89 off the support at 87 and yellow exited 93 +4
8-took the buy again at 87 off the yellow push down bad execution exited 89 +2
1-the daily pivot was at 21, price went a little past my entry i waited and exited 18 +3
2-and took a buy at 19, it also went further against me then i like but the bias was up for right now so i felt it was just pulling back to then continue on up, I exited at 22 +3

i had talked about this before in my posts but i will do it again so everyone understands another candle pattern I look. This is the doji or the indicive candle. What interestes me is seeing a doji with opposite candles on each side. So sell candle doji buy candle then i have a strong setup that this trade is going to go up. Or buy candle going up, the price stalls, a doji forms then a get sell candle, that is a sign that the price is going to reverse.
Early today i took my first buy, i had gotten in and then i saw this exact setup the buy candle a big doji candle though the tail was pointing up, i was in a buy and as i watched the nex few minutes unfold the buy candle formed so i held the trade and got 13 pips out of it i believe. See that i felt pretty strong the bias was going to be up for a bit. When using this setup your stop loss is the top or bottom of the doji candle.
Here are a few examples the second is one that i actually traded.
20-take a quick buy at 10 and it jumped up 12 exited with +2
21-came down to the 03 i entered at 06 again rode it up to 14 +8
22-because the trend is going down now once it tested 06 again i shorted targeting 95 area as mentioned in an earlier post exited 95 +11 and
23-bought at 95 it went against me i held this think it might pullback up to test the 95 and then continue dropping, soon as it hit 95 it exited BE and
24-shorted 95 then it went and tested the lows i exited 86 +9
I AM FINISHED FOR THE DAY...WOW!!!!
15-took the buy at 23 broke against me -7
16-took the buy at 19 exited 16 -3
17-bought at 14 exited 16 +2
18-bought again at 12 exited 10 -2

11-shorted immediately on the exit grbbed +2 then it pushed higher again saw he weekly pivot and daily pivot was at 60, but the priced lost energy at 55
12-so i shorted from 52 exited 48 +4
I saw that the market was extremel oversold and that a correction up was due to happen, the market had been ranging it pushed down a bit into the 45 area
1-i got yellow and entered a buy at 50 exited 65 +15
2-recent highs were at 71, priced pushed to it i shorted and grabbed +4
