No Stress New York Session Open Forex Scalping

Today, there were a few nice forex scalping trades just as the NY Session opened. Logical Forex, once again, made me happy with some net pips.

Market Structure, Decision Points



Notice how price is hanging out just above the red Magnet Line. Price was clearly at a decision point – and worth zooming in to inspect things more closely.

Magnet Line Dance



Let’s look at the Indicators:

  • Logical Forex Activity Lines – The lines are nearly boxes. They are not super-wide for sure, but going into the NY open was enough reason for me to look further.
  • Logical Forex News Alert – No news showing.
  • Logical Forex Flow Lines – The Flow Lines are coming out of consolidation, and separating nicely. Everything is the same color. The black Spine is fully revealed.
  • Logical Forex Phase – Most recently, it is tracking along with price.
  • Logical Forex Bias – Pointing downwards.
  • Logical Forex Magnet Lines – Price did a slight dance around the first red Magnet Line, then started to dance around the second one. 
  • Logical Forex Watchdog – Barking to take a look.

Had I been sitting down at my computer, that first trade through the Magnet Line would have been nice to capture. Since I wasn’t actively watching the charts at that time watching the charts, the only focus I had was on what was happening now. Right now, price danced around the Magnet Line, went through, then did a nice pause.

I enter my SELL during the pause, prepared to exit quickly should price pop back up through the Magnet Line.

Pull Back, Exit



Price continued down for a little while, before it came back up, where I exit for a nice several pips on a large lot-size trade.

Notice how price continued down afterwards. I don’t care about missed pips, because I got my pips safely and with little stress. For anyone who wants to hold on longer, go for it. For me, I am happy.


Happy Trading!
