The Trend is your friend until the end, let winners run and cut your losers.
Note: You trade out from the session open – and do not take reversal trades back to the open from the high or low etc. – you let it run and trail.
Get in a trade as early as possible and avoid chop and false signals, but get an entry price near the session open price, so that there is a high probability of a run leading to a profit. As opposed to getting in later at the high and trend exhaustion or requiring a larger stop loss to weather pullback continuations or chop and noise.
To get started with this system please use the workspace “AFT SFG Breakout Trader-0000A-Generic-Micros” view the following guidance for AFT Day Trading Micros Session Open Breakout

AFT System Details
Using the Daily Session Fib Grid signals indicator as the system base, signals are taken above or below the Daily Session Fib Grid – “No Trade Zone” NTZ within a % above and below that area – called the trading zone, the area is set by the “SFG Proximity Filter % ”
The SFG Fib Grid provides a map of price as a grid of %. The open is F0%. +f100% is the daily expected high and -f100% is the daily expected low.
So we can use the grid for entry’s, targets, stops and as a filter. So the trading zone where we take signals as trades as a region could be +F31% of the Daily SFG Grid above and -f31% below -this region can be increased or decreased to suit trading style.
