Medbs. If you didnt get a little bit of help from the Swiss national bank today you would be more like 800 pips down. Dont worry it will come back though.

counter_violent had a similar thread, where he threw out the conventional rule-book, took apparently random initial trades, then judiciously added to losers, and managed the trade till closed for a profit.

CV was treated with a bit more respect.
So, its not medbs trades per se, but his apparently terse manner that has rubbed people up the wrong way.

Either way, I have learnt the hard and expensive way that accepting small losers is better than big ones.

hmmm if the approach is no stops, and in your stats you only count the trades that you've closed for a profit, one can see how 100 pct success rate is achievable. It's the kind of statistics Gordon Brown would happily espouse, I'm sure.
