**Introduction**

In the major XAU/USD tread, FF traders are interested in intraday trading signals or whatever. Impressed by 20-30 pips ($2-$3 USD price delta) bets made with high lots, like 1.00 lot or higher.

None of these interests me.

I do not trust for a second that there are such successful hobby day traders, anywhere around here. Trading high volumes? Nailing it every day? Sure...

For the sake of mathematical possibility, probably such magical persons do exist. But they are very low number. Ridiculously low number (1-2-3 out of 10,000 active hobby traders). Which makes it nearly impossible to meet even a single guy, or a gal, here, at this forum. Anyways.

If you want to be fooled, this is not your tread. Go and chase the 1 and 2 and 4 lots bets for the next 5-10-15 pips. The big XAU/USD tread offers just that. The big day trade magic. Exposed. Easily. Just as you like it.

**Goals**

Many of you do not know it, but there is only one price available. The median D1 price. I am not going to disclose anything about that here. Nor will enter into any arguments with anyone. I do not care what any of you thinks.

So, forming a basket of trades, with the annual trend, seems to be very economical way of trading. I could not find anything less harming with lesser draw downs.

The Risk Reward Ratio you all have been brain washed about, starts from at least 1:10 and reaches to 1:40 or even higher. It depends on your personal strategy in use.

All strategies I have personally created, do penetrate the annual trend. Every single one of them. I cannot see what can be done in order to fail them. Which generally means, all of your strategies, all of you are using, will also make it through.

Remember. There is only one price. The median D1 price. This limits the number of Trend strategies to just two. Stop and Limit. What the Trend strategies do differ from one to another... is just the number of entries. Very cruel. But it is the only reality we all live in.

Stop and Limit. Trend following and even Counter Trend. CT can be profitable. Very economical, too. One can trade against the trend, on US30 for example, for nearly 3,000 negative pips ($300 USD), at the cost of just -$500 loss. The other batch, the Trend one, opens exactly the same number of trades (around 100-120) and makes over $10-12,000 USD in return. This is exactly what very much interests me.

I will not share how I do this. It is not a secret. It is also very simple. And it does concern my own money only. None of your business.

I was inspired by a legend about a trader who deposited €5,000 with CMC Markets. Traded the major indexes. With the trend. Adding more trades with the equity grow. After 3-4-5-6 months (dunno exactly) he had €22,000,000. Then he lost -€4 mil in open trades, closed all and withdrew €18 mil net.

True or not. Does not matter. I have checked, if this can be done? Yes, it can. But not with 15 or whatever consecutive winning trades (Rags to Riches), Monte Carlo simulations, ext. horse shit ideas...

This is not my goal. I share nothing here. Strategies. Indicators. EAs. Don't even ask.

My goal is to help you, to hold your Trend trades.
