December 2004 Key Trades
Charts below reflect profit targets (pt's) based on Japanese Candlestick s/r levels. Profit targets suggest where the trader should have exited.
However, the trader's actual exit that's posted below in the commentary will not always be the same as the profit target (pt) annotated in the charts due to real trading conditions.
Simply, no matter how well the destination (exits) are mapped out...
The goal is to follow the trading plan outlined by the strategy as best as possible...the goal is not to be perfect because every experience trader knows that's not reality.
Remember this...we highly recommend you ask either NihabaAshi or any other #FuturesTrades member for help if your struggling trader not meeting your trading goals.

Price action only divergence signals is arguably one of the most profitable trade signals and so few traders use them.
Soon after 0930am est I missed a picture perfect divergence signal via one of my strategies. Actually, I chased it beyond my chase range and because of such...started exited that position in that tight trading range price pullback.
Next...a bullish continuation pattern appeared via a strong white line after two indecision dojis.
Long Entry ER2 @ 640.90
After the entry...all profit targets were managed via the 5min chart interval (not shown) in comparison to the trade signal 3min chart interval.
I usually increase the chart interval when I think I've caught a strong trend so that I can exploit the price move efficiently.
Exited @ 641.50, 642.10, 642.70 and 643.50
Profit targets were reached very easily and initial stop nor trailing stop were in any danger of being pick pocketed.
