Today I’m going to share with you my trading day. We’re going to start here taking some trades off the daily charts very shortly. Then I’m going to take you on a helicopter flight, where I’ll be flying myself, and then I’ll be back here to trade some more tonight. Let’s get into that and more right now.
Hey there traders, this is Andrew Mitchem, here at the Forex Trading Coach, with video and podcast number 476.
Taking 5 trades on the D1, H12, H6 and H4 charts
We’ve got a real special day lined up for you today. It is coming up to about 10 to 10:00 in the morning here. The daily charts are about to change over at my 10:00 AM, which is coming up to 5:00 PM New York time. I’m going to scan through the daily charts right now, and then I’m going to go through the 12-hour, the 8-hour, and the 6-hour charts, and I’m going to come back shortly and let you know what I’m trading.
Trading done and Pre-flight done
Righty. So here we are back again, just some 20 minutes later. I’ve been through the daily charts, the 12, the 8, and the 6, on the forex and non-forex pairs. This is what I am trading today on the daily charts. I am taking a trade on the Euro Swiss Franc, and also on the pound New Zealand. So both sell trades, Euro Swiss Franc, sell pound New Zealand, sell on the Dailies. I’m also taking a H4 chart trade on silver as a buy trade, a H6 gold trade against the US and a Euro Australian H12 chart trade. So all up I have got five trades that I’m taking now, and that’s it for the morning. Next stop helicopter time.
Okay, so we’re inside. All the pre-flights are done. Everything’s all checked in here, and we’re ready to start up in the next few minutes, going for a nice flight. Little bit like trading. You do your homework, you do your due diligence, you do all your testing, and then once everything’s been thoroughly checked, you take your trades. I’ve actually just checked the gold and silver trades that I mentioned earlier, they’re going really, really well, especially the silver trade. The silver H4 forex chart’s just going tremendously well. So, really nice to see. I’ll update you once we start flying. Talk soon.
Check my trades and ready to fly home
So just had a nice couple of hours with some friends here at Awaroa, which is north of Nelson. Beautiful, very remote place here. Got a bit of a landing spot here for us. And yeah, just checked my phone. We do have reception here, so just checked the phone, see the trades are still going really well. Actually, better than when I left. So heading back now, and then I’ll come back on when we’re at home tonight, looking at the changeover of the 5:00 AM Eastern Standard Time charts. And I’ll be looking at the 2 hour, 4 hour, 6 and 12 hours, and I’ll update you on the progress of today’s trades at that stage and hopefully take a few more trades. Talk to you soon.
Flying from Nelson to Awaroa
1500 feet flying out from Nelson going to Awaroa. Good day outside. quite windy though
but nice to see we’re up flying. We are getting ready to the beach. See you soon.
An H4 trade at the 5am EST changeover
Righty. So here we are, 10:00 PM. Just taking my last trades for today. Just one trade at the 5:00 AM Eastern Standard Time, which is New York time changeover, and that is a sell trade that we’ve just taken on the Aussie Franc on the H4 chart. So let’s see how those trades go. We’ve been talking about it here on our forum site and discussing it with other clients as well. So yeah, just really great to have the amount of traders on there all looking through the charts, and I’ve been through all the forex and non-forex pairs at the changeover, at the different timeframe charts, and a lot sort of almost trades, but only that one good enough trade to take, using the criteria that we have. So I hope that helps. Trading just twice a day, it’s taken me what, less than 30 minutes in total to look through all the charts, place the trades here today.
What do we have? Five trades earlier today, one now. Let’s see how they all go. But between the trades earlier today, the flying, trades now, you can see how flexible the system is. You don’t even have to trade at these two times, by the way. It’s just the two times that I choose to trade. But you can see how you can trade, still do normal things, whether it be a normal job, career, travel, family things, whatever it might be, flying, whatever it is that you like to do, you can do that and trade, the strategy that I’ve created and teach and trade, and been doing that, teaching for 13-plus years and trading for nearly 18 years now. Wow. Hence the grey bits. But look, hope that helps.
And any questions just ask. We’re here to help and we love what we’re doing, as you can see. Thanks again. This is Andrew Mitchem at the Forex Training Coach. Bye for now.
