Xin’s Independent Trading for 5-3-2016 – A Lone Australian Profit



Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia

Today is a really slow trading day. It was like watching paint dry for most of the time. I did have an Australian Dollar trade, hence the picture to the right. See below for the limited action for today.

Morning Tuesday 5/3/2016

Signal: Euro / US Dollar (EURUSD)

This trade I entered last night rocketed upwards. It hit all three profit targets and much, much more. I actually had two positions and made a quick profit on this trade.

Evening Tuesday 5/3/2016

Signal: Silver / US Dollar (XAGUSD)

Not much new on this one. Sometimes on daily charts the trade takes time to develop.

Signal: US Dollar / Canadian Dollar (USDCAD) Harmonic Shark Pattern

This looks like it is a real reversal. I entered only one position because the huge run up intimidated me a little.

Signal: US Dollar Japanese Yen (USDJPY) Harmonic Bat Pattern

Not much movement on this one. Again, these daily chart trades take time to develop.

Today’s Geography Lesson: Sydney Opera House

From Wikipedia; “

The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre in Sydney, Australia, identified as one of the 20th century’s most distinctive buildings.

Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the building was formally opened on 20 October 1973.

The building and its surrounds occupy the whole of Bennelong Point in Sydney Harbour, between Sydney Cove and Farm Cove, adjacent to the Sydney central business district and the Royal Botanic Gardens, and close by the Sydney Harbour Bridge.”

Lessons Learned

Lessons Learned 1: Always be cautious. Wait until you have your trade confirmation before entering a position. If you aren’t sure, hold off. Another trade will always come. Now, I don’t mean to be paralyzed and don’t pull the trigger. I mean wait until you have the conditions you want before trading.

Lessons Learned 2:  Be confident of your decision making. If you have a good signal and you have clear confirmation, don’t be afraid to take action and to let the trade develop. Set your profit targets and stop losses and allow the trade to come to a conclusion. Don’t jump out of the trade from fear. You can turn a potential winner into a losing trade by not following your system. Follow the system!


A slow day. Only one trade hot one profit target. Kind of boring, but no losses, so that is always a positive. I think sometimes you can enjoy a slow day, it can give you a chance to catch up and do some analysis which is hard to do when you are tied up with a bunch of active trades.

    What do you use as confirmation? Lessons Learned 1: Always be cautious. Wait until you have your trade confirmation before entering a position

      Hello Mike,

      In the case of the harmonic signals I look at several things. The first are bars on the price chart in the direction of the signal. For example, if the signal indicates a sell I like to see one or more down bars on the chart after the signal. This demonstrates that the price truly may be reversing.

      Another thing I look at is signals on longer time price charts. If the one hour chart gives a sell signal do the 4 hour and daily charts show the same signal in the same direction? If multiple charts are giving the same signal that is another confirmation. On the really short term charts this doesn’t always hold. For example, if the daily chart is in a buy signal, it it still possible for the 5 minute chart to give a sell signal that works. The daily chart could be a buy for a week or two. In that time there are always ups and downs and the 5 minute chart could really be in a good sell signal.

      I also look at the trend. If the longer term trend is upwards, buy signals have less risk, I feel.

      These are common things I look for for confirmation of trade signals from the Harmonic Scanner.

      Please feel free to leave additional questions.
