      this creates balance, and it is how i do it

      long 1 lot , with tp 10 pips
      sell stop below
      buy stop above long
      ---------
      this creates balance with one extra order, but it is more susceptible to chop and mathematical loss due to the law of "outcomes". not sure about how to translate the math to english, sorry.

      the way i do it is i clear the positions and let price go my way. it works sometimes..
      Now I understand it, thanks. I think this practice is best done on a swap free account or with a cheap swap rate.
      I have a full hedge in GBPCHF 0.03 sell + 0.03 buy for 45 days and it gives a total of $9.51 swap interest for the sell positions.

      sure no prob

      but swap does not matter. it has less of an impact then spread. and i have been trading with 5 pip spread for a long time.

      for both of them together you mean. i think.

      you need to pick one direction here and add 1 order that you enter the market with and then add another order that is a pending one. this way you can have a chance to be right and make money on that pair. if you are right then you can do it again and eventually you can unlock the "full hedge" or make enough profit so that you can close the both of them and be in profit regardless.

      Also I wouldn't add another trade in reverse if the one was wrong. I would add another position if I was wrong and the pending one already hit.

      On the other hand if a position that at first was wrong and outside of profit then as it later comes into profit, I would lock that when the market told me that it possibility didn't want to go any further.

      I have a full hedge in GBPCHF 0.03 sell + 0.03 buy for 45 days and it gives a total of $9.51 swap interest for the sell positions.
      this situation is similar to what i have currently in UJ. it happens often and is nothing special. i deal with this EVERY DAY. don't worry!


      https://imgur.com/DFG1TF5

      positions breakdown:
      A) initial position long 1.3 lots
      B) sell 0.95, this came on as a sell stop and is now filled
      C) this is my second long position, long 1.3. i added this because i again think the market will go up.
      D) the two pending sell stops are my balance for the hedge. they total 1.65 lots short and is exactly what i need to make the balance zero.

      if price goes up i make profit, flat out. in fact if price comes up to my first long position i can close all of these and remove the pending orders. i will be in overall profit. this is what will do here.

      on the other hand if price goes down and fills the sell stop 0.95 in the market i will do 2 things, firstly i will lock the sell 0.95 with a stop loss under it and secondly i will make new pending orders under all of this. this is because the distance in pips, which is pre-determined, is enough and says that i must lock the order that is in profit. in this case that would be the current 0.95 sell order.

      now i could go on and talk about scenarios but this is one step in the process. sometimes it is enough with 1 step, sometimes it takes 2 .. sometimes 5.

      ---------- Post added 02-14-2018 at 12:03 AM ---------- Previous post was 02-13-2018 at 12:01 PM ----------

      and here is how it looks when a cycle is finished. all positions closed, arrow shows where in white. the pending orders, on and off are shown by the yellow arrows. now the trading starts again, when i see something interesting that is.

      Nice one mate and if I may ask how has the system profit been consistently, because I have come to understand that most people that makes money from this business are not doing the conventional buy and sell rather there is either a system of hedging or gird trading.

      thank you.

      if you check the thread you will find many screen shoots showing how it has been doing. it's been doing good



      I have come to understand that most people that makes money from this business are not doing the conventional buy and sell rather there is either a system of hedging or gird trading.
      i can't answer that. i have no idea what other people do, who they are or if they make profit. this is not really shown somewhere. it is only if people like to post about their trading that we see it. there could be many people doing this hedging or there could be only 1, i can't know this.

      ---------- Post added at 10:00 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:55 AM ----------

      and the examples continue, today i wake up and the account is fully hedged.

      it looks like this:


      https://imgur.com/E54LtUa

      i don't know what price will do but most likely one of two things will happen, i will either add a short or a long. this will probably happen in the areas shown by the yellow squares.

      ---------- Post added at 10:53 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:00 AM ----------

      i must add one thing, because there now are more then 2 positions that are not in profit. the EA will be set to close everything a few pips (2-3) over the previous high of equity. this number is seen on balance and i simply add the positions size x 3 pips on top of that as a target. i can't show my EA, i can but i won't, so you cannot really see how this is done

      It is a short, I can see it how, because the price is pushing up looking to end this trend. The most interesting part of your strategy is that all ends in profit, but who can leave open positions at the night without an expert helping hand? I like the idea anyway. My goal for the future - after a huge amount of trading data will be to close my position/s earlier without hitting a target like, support, or resistance, but hitting a target of my average win.

      that's what the EA is for. but actually yesterday i had all my systems off, meaning computer server was turned off. but you know the pending orders are still there regardless.



      It is a short, I can see it how, because the price is pushing up looking to end this trend.
      yes and i actually already added a short position.



      after a huge amount of trading data will be to close my position/s earlier without hitting a target like, support, or resistance, but hitting a target of my average win.
      exactly. that is what i do at the reset point!

      ---------- Post added at 05:03 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:17 PM ----------

      here are more examples & an update.

      here is the UJ situation currently:


      https://imgur.com/kdmVInw

      if we close like on the image, then the short will be locked (1). secondly i will add a long position at the pin (2). the long X position is left there because i did not have automatic trading on and i had to leave the computer, i could have but no matter.. since the max pressure allowed is = entry size * 2 , meaning it is 2.4 lots i can add a long position but only one.

      i did add a long, on a harami / doji situation.



      now for another chart. this is GU h1 chart. where i have some longs locked in.



      all the long positions that are in profit will have their stops moved inside the zone. this is because of the rule "price has closed above" = "should be strong now". i did place all the long positions at 3915 or so. also notice the indicator stating that i am net short, in reality i am actually 0.21 vs 0.26 = 0.05, but that is what the indicator does. summarize for me. all i am allowed to do here is trail the stops, if price says that i should. if price goes up more i will have more profits created but if price decides to crash back down then i also get profit. this is hedging after all

      success rate is 100%, if i don't push it to much. meaning low risk.. it really only has problems when the lot size becomes to big for the equity, but really to get away from that just don't do it



      and how do you put your SL ?
      SL is put when "i think price will not go any more in that direction."

      here is an update, and also example of SL placement. this is only ONE example and there are several other ways i do this.

      update for the UJ trades:


      https://imgur.com/HftGP4c

      one long position was given a SL = locked, because "ping pong" formations. meaning price was low and got up to a new high (1 -> 2) later price came back down to 3 showing me that 1 is a low and 2 is significant. when price later came back to 2 again, here (4) it completes the ping pong formation and i lock it there. SL was placed where you see it on the chart.

      the yellow order has been given a dynamic trail, the distance is up to the arrow. if price comes there then that order will also be trailed = it will be given an SL by the platform. when this happens my EA will adjust the pending orders to match the balance.
