Currency trading on D1 time frame

I'll be posting my forex trades on daily time frame (D1) in this journal.

I have a full time job and usually have difficulty trading lower time frames. Recently I started trading H4 time frame using a mobile phone when I'm at work. However, D1 time frame is still my primary choice. My method is purely technical analysis and I (try to) follow trend. I try to catch reversals and add to my position at retracements.

My favorite pair for this method is eur/usd, but depending on market conditions I may trade other pairs such as gbp/usd, aud/usd or usd/jpy.

I hope this journal improves my trading.

Good luck as your gonna need it trading off a mobile. I use a mobile app only to monitor or close trades but never to open trades.

No. I'm not him. But I wish I was a professional trader like him.

Thanks for your interest.

I'm not gonna use my mobile device for this method. I open/close trades only around 5 pm NY time. This method is suitable for people having full time job who can't watch the market intraday.

trader_d started this thread I'm short on eur/usd at 1.2879 from 12-Aug-2010.
I won't consider this trade in my profit/loss calculations in this journal, because I opened it before starting this thread.

trader_d started this thread I closed my short position and now I'm long at 1.2802 with s/l at 1.2650 with 1% risk.
Things on on daily time frame move very slowly. This will be a very boring journal.
