Just another bit of money management. When the market is running in a
consolidation period for some time one of the golden rules when you want to enter
you must look at is how many pips am I positive at that moment of the consolidation.
If you weren’t part of the consolidation and did not make any profit during its course
you must be very aware of the breakout that is coming. Just before the breakout
occurs the MACD might give a signal like the one we had just now(05/02/2007) on
the EusUsd that might turn out a down breakout. Then you must have pips in hand
you took from the consolidation. We all agreed that a move might be on the cards.
If you aren’t any pips positive after a consolidation phase of two weeks and more
you must rather wait for the MACD to give a signal either after the breakout or if it
gives a signal around the middle of the consolidation. It is only to be save as to the
emotion of the market. If the emotion is tens it always are around support and
resistance especially after some consolidation.
