Wow, that was some great trading. Which pair did you use. And what was your strategy. If you don't mind sharing.


Nate read Courtneys other posts her strategy is well laid out.

Nice job Courtney but why is your account level at less than 10K? Don't answer I know why.
Do you know where the woodshed is?
You already know the answer and if you don't run your max excursions.
You're doing just great don't mind Lil Ol me. I am an equal opportunity criticizer. :)
BTW did you know if you lose 20 in a row you get the same green apple!


Ok. Thanks Rookie.


Rookie's que. ". . . why is your account level at less than 10K?

Ans.: I have swing trades in place. I'm not folding, I'm holding. It's risky but that's why I'm hanging out in Gold 1, where I can test the waters to see what works and what does not.

I used a different strategy for today's pips.

1. No indicators
2. No TP
3. Lot size 0.01
4. M1 time frame

In one hour I raked in the earnings.

Charles Moeller

WOW! What a streak!

Nice, very nice.

Hi Courtney 16601,
Awesome posting and result.


By reading your postings, I noted that you have mentioned how you achived this great goal, but since , I'm a rookie it was

hard for me to grasp . It would be wonderful if you elabrate on your trades.

Good luck with your futur trads.


@jfk583 . . . thank you. If you find Silver 2 to be a bit challenging don't hesitate to ask for help.
@S J . . . thank you. Be sure to check your messages.


Just fabulous Courtney!! You seem to master the gentle art of INTERPRETING charts splendidly.


Great post,,,That will keep me looking for those gains, With no indicators,,,

FX Money

Thats Awesome Courtney.


@banerji . . . you've correctly identified one of my trading strengths, interpreting the charts.
@frg107frg . . . a couple indicators are helpful. Apiary Pivots are builds confidence for market direction when the market is confusing. The Bollinger Bands are helpful for seeing contractions before a breakout.
@FX Money . . thank you. I see you're in the gold club, that's awesome.


Courtney, when I see a Bolinger Band squeeze forming it's all I can do to sit on hands wait for the breakout.


Nice Job.

Mike Smith

Aw bless your heart.

True Jedi skills!


@rookie. . . I can relate to that. Interpreting which direction it's going to go in can be misleading at times.
@AARON_H . . . thank you.
@Library .01. . . that's pretty impressive!
@Amnalehu . . .greetings.


@everyone . . .

Very nice equity curve, Well done, how to you Enter the market and what time frame do you use?


Excellent job. Have you ever posted your trade plan?


great job well done, I would like to see your idea about my trading.


@mehdivincheh, good trading, and expectancy.


@mehdivincheh . . . thank you. Other than what looks like you hit 5% and got shut down, your expectancy, profit and win to loss looks really great. If you continue trading the way you are you're going to make real money in the Apiary Fund.


thank you for positive feed back.

thanks mate


Bolinger Bands...


Great May I ask was it swing trade or scalping.


Really like the volitility of the London session. I am going to trade it for a few weeks to see if it is worth getting up at 3AM. It looks like I can do more in a couple of London market hours than any of the other sessions. That is a strong incentive point by itself.


Great Work! Congrats! That London open's tough! Stick with it!


@innoavenue . . . I currently using only the Apiary Pivots along with support and resistance.
@kakpure.jai . . . It was scalping and market conditions just happened to be very, very good.
@Alacron . . . openings and closings seem to produce extra volatility.
@tully319 . . . Thank you.

green grappler

awesome job


Like Alacron I have adjusted my trading hours to take advantage of the volatility of the London session mostly due to the higher volume seen at this time. However one has to be cautious because sentiment can change quickly because of this volume. For this reason I wail at least an hour after the London open to place trades even if all indications point to a direction in the pair at the open. Naturally I can miss out on winners doing this when the trend continues but often sentiment changes and there is enough volume to cause a big reversal in trend which would have resulted in big losers. The tricky part comes on when to get into the trade-one can't wait too long since momentum usually slows down in the second half of the session. My hope is that the pair does not move too much in either direction in the first hour and therefore the setup conditions indicate that the trend direction has not changed.


Great work Courtney! How have you been playing the Brexit trades recently? You indicated no indicators, so you must watch your charts closely? I have been whipsawed a few times with and without stops. Maybe I should close out my positions at EOD. Your thoughts?


@green grappler, . . . thx.

@bobkraybill, . . . traders like to trade so they jump in rather than wait for an ideal opportunity. The best time to trade is near support or resistance.

@Sean_D, . . . Thx, no I have not been playing the Brexit trades. I can interpret charts at a glance. When to close a trade depend on what type of trading you're doing, long term (swing trading), short term (scalping) and market conditions.

Follow me at Courtney's Callout in the forum.



Very good trading... Think I am going to .01 lot size to spread this out.


Forex Sniper

@wayne_2 . . . Thamk you. Good idea. .01 is still working well for me in Gold 3.

@Forex Sniper. . . thank you. Practice is the key.

Visit my call outs.


that's amazing! I've had 20 for 20 days but doesnt' happen all the time depends on market conditions of course !

It don't happen every day but when it does it makes up for when the market is stagnant.
