    “all this highs and lows and indicators stuff is completely uselss if you don’t understand the context in which a trend occurs.” -good point

    “you can have a large drawdown damn quick in day trading, whereas swing trading is? far more patient, calmer, lower rates of leverage and easier” -If you find letting trades run overnight ‘calmer’…I don’t…

    absorb huge drawdowns? you are clueless.
    you can have a large drawdown damn quick in day trading, whereas swing trading is far more patient, calmer, lower rates of leverage and easier.
    seriously, take the chart out, and let us see the trend with out EYES.
    all this highs and lows and indicators stuff is completely uselss if you don’t understand the context in which a trend occurs.
    the teeny teeny tiny section of that chart yo have picked, is slightly downtrending but very choppy

    I never use indicators they are very unreliable in real time trading.

    Hindsight is 20/20 – and as Dr Elder says – “your broker won’t let you trade in the middle of the chart”

    Those indicators are lagging. That is a problem you have to consider

    it’s like cooking i guess, they wanna add a bit of flavour…to their screens lol

  8. jcfbell3001 says:

    sure long term makes sense if you can absorb huge drawdowns before it moves your way

  9. workplayrun says:

    its called relative highs and relative lows, your just looking at things on a very short time scale

    With a simple stock screener and your most basic indicators and volume, anyone can swing trade, why do you Forex boys make it so complicated, so many trades for what, a few pips here and there day trading, a waste of time if you ask me, even on massively leveraged accounts.

    Only stupid people can believe in it.

  12. Lafraim says:

    From where we have increased the profit from each share when the price rises by 1%
    The system is not working correctly.

  13. luckyload3r says:

    lol. you make it too complicated
    uptrend or downtrend
    buy dips and sell rallies
    you purposefully have :
    a) taken a lower timeframe, mostly filled with noise and not much trend at all
    b) a small, small section of the chart so we cant ACTUALLY see the trend.

    in other words ‘look how hard this is , its just so hard, but IF you use my methods….’

    if you made that a n H4 chart. with more than 50 bars, it would make more sense….

    After crossover of 2 moving avg, look for pullback and then enter trade with use of osclillator.

  20. ZaphodUk1 says:

    hi, any advice for a two moving average crossover strategy?

    Personally, I find that it is not meaning to trend trade using 5min charts.
    It is simply too noisy.
    Higher time frame may be more suitable for trend trading.
