How time flies! I remember you starting with that setup but I hadn’t realised it was already a year ago!
Actually, I don’t think you have been trading the HLHB system at all. You just had the same chart setup. But I haven’t seen you working with the system’s 150-pip trailing stop and 400-pip targets. And I think that is significant because you would benefit from analysing how you, personally, were trading that setup and then why it has not been producing the results you were hoping for.
From what I saw of your postings, you were entering positions based on the system rules but were exiting entirely on a discretionary basis whenever your profits looked threatened or whatever your feelings were about the current price movements taking place. (I’m not saying this was wrong, but it is perhaps important in analysing where you are today with your trading)
I am not saying you should have followed the rules exactly, only that this does point to a principle that may be a starting point in analysing what is not working for you here. I.e. are you looking for a (semi) automated type of system where you just follow the rules or a discretionary type of method where you decide yourself about your entries and exits and appropriate levels based on your readings of your chart.
I think you are more of an intuitive than analytical person and it might be a hard exercise for you to carry out, but I think you need to step back a bit and analyse both your desires and your capabilities regarding a trading method as well as the more physical and environmental limitations on your trading activities.
If you can build a detailed profile of your trading desires, possibilities and limitations then it may be easier to identify a trading style that would best fit that profile.
Such issues might include:
How much time do you have available to watch screens
How much time do you want to spend watching screens
Do you prefer to manage your open positions as the price unfolds or simply use “set and forget” strategies.
Do you prefer longer term trades (e.g. 2-3 days) or intraday whenever you happen to have the time
Do have the equity to run longer term trades off daily charts requiring greater room to breathe or are you limited to short term trades with close stops
Do you prefer to watch many instruments or just one or two
Are you able to walk away from your trades and turn to other obligations or do you need to watch them
Are you able to concentrate and react quick enough to work from tick charts or 1 min charts and trade intensively for a few hours a day
Do you prefer/need to follow fundamentals and apply them to a greater or lesser extent in your decision-making - or to trade entirely off TA signals (whether indicators or PA or a combination of these)
I think you may be at that crossroads where you realise that it is perhaps more important to know who you are and what you want and what you are capable of rather than just what setup sounds sensible and easy to use.
I hope this helps you a bit
