The Bigger Your Stop Loss

It is an investment opportunity. Yes No Please fill out this field. Jason Prince October 6, at 5: As you see, the price action starts a gradual move toward the lower level of the daily range. It has to be really strong to go long without having to a confirmation candle. December 18, at Back in when George Soros broke the Bank of England , he had a flexible mental stop loss of around pips in place.

Learn Forex: How to Set Stops. The chart below will show some of the more common pairings: Traders can set stops at a static price with the anticipation of allocating the stop-loss, and.

Example: Short EUR/USD

The daily time frame is far better at producing sustainable trends than any lower time frame. A global market like currencies has no shortage of market-moving events. Some are scheduled occurrences while others, such as natural disasters, are spontaneous. By sticking to a higher time frame such as the daily, you can avoid much of the day-to-day volatility. In a way, it acts as a natural filter. All of a sudden, a Fed member gives an impromptu speech causing the US dollar to plummet.

If you had been trading from the daily time frame, your stop loss would likely be at least 50 pips away from your entry. Your risk remains the same, but your ability to withstand spikes in volatility has increased significantly.

Bill Lipschutz is a Forex trading legend, no question about it. As a technical trader, I rely on key levels to make my decisions. I never try to figure out what the Fed might do or formulate a trade idea based on non-farm payroll or any other market-moving event. I take care to consider these things and incorporate them into my technical approach.

For example, I trade pin bars and engulfing candles as well as patterns such as the head and shoulders and bull and bear flags, just to name a few. Each one is considered a separate strategy. My criteria for a pin bar is, of course, different from that of an engulfing candle.

Similarly, the head and shoulders pattern is vastly different from a bull or bear flag. One is a reversal pattern while the other signals a continuation of the prevailing trend. If you want to find success in this business, you need to master one strategy at a time. Trying to do too much too soon will not only slow the learning process, but it could also lead to some disastrous outcomes, such as blowing a trading account.

Only then should you look to add more tools to your trading arsenal. Like all of the posts on this site, this one is packed with information from top to bottom. It can be all too easy to finish reading it and suddenly feel overwhelmed. Too many traders overcomplicate things. They spend their time testing expert advisors or creating indicators when the real truths about why a market moves the way it does are right in front of them.

As soon as I went back to the basics and learned what the price was telling me, everything started falling into place. I ditched the indicators and forgot everything I thought I knew about what it is to be a trader. The length of the post got away from me, but I love writing about these topics because many of them are such a contrast to popular belief. I shared the following with my members recently, and I want to share it with you now. I think we can all agree on the points above, especially the last one.

This leads us to one very eye-opening and somewhat obvious conclusion. But not every trade works out how you might anticipate it to! Javier, I think Kiwi answered this perfectly. But that assumes many things, including no additional positions pyramiding. When this occurs…… How could one approach this case.

Hi Justin, I would appreciate your opinion on when a trader should move the stop to break-even. Thank you very much. Hi Marcello, great question! You are mostly correct Justin, i appreciate this answers.

I commented on the pair here: There was nothing to do last week. Do you take the trade only if the price breaks the line?

The importance of the daily close would make for a great topic. Hi Justinn, Thank you for your useful lesson once again. And I would like to heard from you more about handling trades when the trade is open.

I actually have a post planned for this Wednesday that will address how to manage an open position. Hi Justin, Great thoughts. Hi 3R is realy what anybody can do i traiding spreadbeting and i get profit per 2 days traiding position cost me just if you have lavarage 1: Do you consider seasonal aspects of a currency pair.

It can even cause you to lose more. When you are experienced, knowledgeable and wise enough to pick the strongest signals from 20 pairs daily charts, why should you spend more time at the computer? I think I will forget about the daily time frame and will only trade the weekly and monthly time frames when I get older.

But I will never think about using the shorter time frames, even 4hrs. Forex trading is for making money.

It is an investment opportunity. This tutorial was very useful. Now I know a bit more about candlesticks! I came from a very lower class family in my country, i have no work or job. Kamel hi, very interesting strategy which I will be looking into over the next month.

I presume you have you Bollinger Bands set at 20,2, is this correct? Secondly, what time do you place your trades? Hi Jonathan, I use the default setting for BB. I check the charts after the daily candle close which is at 5pm EST. If I locate any setups, I place the orders.

Do you ever look at Fundamental analysis and base trades off of the news? The news result is reflected on the price charts. The strong setups we see on the charts are created by the news. Kamel, it cant be simpler and easier to understand your way of looking at the chart and trading……awesome…. I like to spend one or two hours after the nyc close i presume that will form and close the daily candle and put pending orders immediately, is it possible? In other words, what conditions need to be met to place pending orders, looking at the daily candle close?

If the pin bar is really long and it forms a strong BB lower band breakout, I will go long. It depends on the pin bar strength. It has to be really strong to go long without having to a confirmation candle. You can also set pending orders instead of taking the position right away.

For example, when there is a long trade setup, you can set a buy stop several pips above the high price of the candle that has formed the long trade setup. Hi Kamel, I would like to ask you, if you see strong setup for trade, for example BB breakout, you start trade with one position and close it in one day or open more smaller positions and close it step by step? Sometimes you hold positions few days and weeks? Thank you for your answer Great job. I usually take one position.

If the signal is really strong, I close half of it at my first target which is usually the same size as my stop loss. I leave the other half open to make more money. But I rarely do this. Yes, sometimes I hold the positions for several days or even weeks when the trade setup is TOO strong and it indicates a big and strong reversal that moves the price for hundreds of pips. I sometimes trade based on the weekly any monthly charts too. Therefore, I will have to hold the positions sometimes for several weeks.

Yes, it was a bearish signal, but was not confirmed by candle 7. Candle 7 had to be strong bearish candle to confirm candle 6. But it close with a bullish body which mean most probably the up movement would be continued.

So no short setup there. The pin break out we are talking about is more dependent on the trend of the bb whether upward or downword and not on the type of the candlestick. The candlestick reversal pattern could be bullish or bearish candlestick with a long upper shadow piercing the upper bb. My target order is limited to the next day movement…: Usually I will be out the next day. However, when the trade setup is too strong I hold the position for a longer time.

Hi Kamel, Thanks for your articles and showing us your trading method. It is not necessary to tell us the setups Before you enter. Just tell us one time each week what setups you entered during the week? If you dont have the time for writing too much details, just a few lines is okay and we can try to understand the reasons for entry by ourselves.

If you are comfortable with doing this, it would really be too useful for us and future followers of LuckScout. Many of us are learning by looking at examples of real trades, the more the better! If you are not comfortable to do this, then please dont worry, we understand! Ash, you are welcome. Actually we took a weak position this week and Chris is supposed to write about it. Account size has nothing to do with the time frame.

You just need to take smaller positions. You can calculate your position size here: Dear Chris i worked with several demo accounts with several methods. Hi Majid, They work on all time frames. However, the problem is that the shorter time frames have become unreliable on market. You could trust the one hour chart 5 years ago, but now it works like a 1min chart. So I do not recommend you to use short time frames. Hi Kamel, been reading your entries and like this day system you have going.

It suites me as I work full time and wanted a day type of system to follow and develop that will take me away from the screens.

What are the Bollinger Settings you use please? I have read one of the Articles about Scaling up, do you ever use them. It depends on the markets. You never know how many trade setups they form. Yes, I still check the same pairs. I trade the weekly itself. Yes, the SL will be larger, but the solution is in taking a smaller position. How would you trade if a signal appears when the candle closes on thursday and is confirmed by the friday candle?

Would you wait until the monday candle is closed? Or would you just enter your orders as soon as market opens on sunday? Thanks for your quick reply! I have started using your strategy this week; already showing good results! I have taking some weak setups just to test, which I maybe should not have take as a beginner..

Will demo this till end of this year and try to get comfortable with it. We have already written too many articles about our system. Thank you so much for the clarification of how you trade, simple and precise. As for the pairs that you trade, you mentioned 15 of them, can you give some clarity into which ones work best for you.

What are the time frames for a short position a long position? Thanks I think you guys may have saved me from disaster thanks from the bottom of my heart! I have a question. You have mentioned above , you use SL and TP both are same size , That mean risk reward ratio should be 1: Thefore do u enough your profit?

Pls answer this matter. Please can you write more about your candlestick strategy? Hi Kamel, nice candlestick strategy, i have a question. Does signal must form and touch moving average one of the candlestick shadow,… or we can also take setup that form a little far of moving average. Jul for example, and would you take 8 Jul setup, i think its valid setup. Have i understood this correctly: In a strong trend, you look for reversal patterns at the middle band, and in a ranging market, you look for reversal patterns at the outer bands?

Hopefully it will come. Hi Kamal, thank you. I would like to know more about your system. Please could you write some more articles. Like indeed in what kind of markets should we take the signals. I have a question about the target you set. In the article you mentioned that the size of it is the same as the stop loss.

In your last example you show trading off the outer bands, I thought you only concentrated on the middle Bollinger band? The next day EXIT before 4: Thank you and Chris very much.

LuckScout team open my eyes on how to trade the…. I love this site. Thanks mr chris and kamel. I would like a ray of light on the logic that brought you to trade like this, maybe I will understand and move forward cause its a bit confusing the temptation to leave one trade open. Thank you Kamel and Chris. Thanks for a great article and some good tips. I can testify that this strategy does work. I followed it in my last 5 trades.

All turned to be winners with an average of 50 pips per trade. Also forums separately for candlestick bb, dbb, and stochastic breakout would be greatly appreciated. Unfortunately Kamel has not participated in any of these activities. That is a great idea though. I have to ask him to start a topic on the forums and let traders follow him. Apologies for the late reply. I have been occupied so badly, and I am a struggling grad in london, its like being in limbo, but making the best of it.

Hopefully we can get an updated forum soon. Cheers Casey, I appreciate the consideration. I have to catch up with the last two months, but il definitely be up to scratch to contribute back to the LuckScout community. Chris in the article it is said that: What are those special signals? I follow the strong candlestick patterns: The first thing is that they have to be not too sharp or shallow. The other thing is that they have to be validated by the price reaction.

It means the price has to react to them, otherwise they are not valid. I already have too many articles about them, but it seems I have to write a detailed article focused on the characteristics of strong SR lines. Thank you for reminding me. I am adding it to my to do list. Perfectly written and so easy to understand. Thanks a lot kamel.

I have one question. Does Kamel hold positions over a day. For instance if his limit order is not triggered does he close the position at 5: This could be off topic, but will you be able to share if USD related pair for instance will move the same way? Does this correlated somehow or they are independent? Please read these articles: In your first example, the barsih candle is formed below middle band without touching middle band.

Are not you concerned about the lower shadow candles 2 in the first chart? One more thing please, because I wanna to falow this type of setup like example in first chart , does the candle must reach middle band , or do you have some rule if not tuch middle band you are in if …? Good work Sir, I will like to know your entry time frame, or still in Daily? God knows how many times I have read this article. I am not able yet to open position based on setup from the first example, that inside day setup is weak for me, but I think that I will be in the future, when I gain enough experience.

Hi kamel I like your articles very much and read all of them strategy more than once.. So you can trade only one of them. Is this something you are happy to live with or do you have a way of trading inside the bands? Thanks for sharing a clear and profitable strategy.

I just got stopped out because the trend continued upwards despite a huge breakout candle, one of several, piercing the top bb. On the first reversal candle I went short but the next candle blazed upwards. What was I doing wrong? Thanks for your help in advance. For the trades that you limit your TP and SL to a 1: I usually allow the market to go on its own way.

So I let the position work. Hi, Thank you for your article on how you trade the daily. Perhaps you or a reader would answer. I close trades before the Friday close. Therefore, if I were to take a trade, I would do so only if I thought there was a good chance the trade would go into profit before the Friday close.

Now, it sometimes takes four or five candles for a trade to move into profit. Should I therefore not take trades on the daily beyond Monday? Where is your cutoff? How do you work it?

I really like this article. I trade only from the daily chart too. The hardest part I had to learn was patience but now I trade with so much confidence and less stress. I mean 1k to 10k standard lots. This eBook shows you the shortest way to acheive Financial Freedom: Just before you go, did you check This System?
