    This has been great for someone new like myself. I finally have a starting area from watching these videos. The transition from the Weekly to the Daily after you identify/distinguish between trend and consolidation was a great help.

    Hi Etienne,
    Great 2018 videos and great Bollinger Band modules. I have shared your YouTube clips with many Australian friends. Just inquiring what your process from
    trading view to setting up a trade on your broker eg…. IC markets ?

    Do you just copy and paste your Short and Low levels from trading view and enter them on your MT4 platform ?

      Hi Kim, I enter my trades on TradingView by connecting it to Oanda. So all my info is in one place :)

      Wise move on going through the course!

    Please can you clarify more about the win/loss rate of this strategy?

    My doubt is this:

    You mention taking profit at 1 to 1 and then again at 2 to 1. If you close half of the initial position at 1 to 1 and the other half a 2 to 1, your reward/risk would be 1.5 (0.5*1+0.5*2=1.5)

    With 40% win/loss as you mention: 40 winners * 1.5 – 60 lossers * 1 = 0

    Cheers

      Hi Francisco,

      The 40-48% win rate is when taking profit at R=1 and R=3. That gives you 2R.

      When excluding the break-even trades, you’d need to get > 33% win rate to make a profit.

      If you decide to do R=1 and R=2, you’ll get a slightly higher win rate. I can’t say for sure, because when I traded this way, I was also moving my stop loss to breakeven. My win rate was around 65%.

      Hope that helps!
