Re: My FX Journal (Plz Help) :)

MayZerG started this thread I have realised i have itchy fingers and want to trade all the time, i have made 2 trades today which have destroyed my profits due to rushing in without planning ahead.

Got caught by a reversal for 100pips and longed on a range at the top of the resistance, just a complete disaster on my part for failing to spot an obvious chart.

Re: My FX Journal (Plz Help) :)

MayZerG started this thread It has been a difficult ride, and i havnt updated this in a week, last week i didnt have much time, and i was mostly breakeven, after doing more studying/research/strategy i was able to slowly recover my losses towards the end of last week before markets closed on friday.

This week has been good sticking primarily on EUR/USD due to the Ireland bailout and uncertainty concerning Portugal/Spain. Has dropped nearly 4,000 pips in 2 days.

Tried a small trade on the SP500 due to the clashes with North Korea shelling 1 of the Islands that South Korea owns. It hit its small stop loss before recovering a few hours later which is a shame.

But this week is looking great, and im always looking for discussion/feedback, so please post!

= +496 pips

The only problem i have is, when i have a long or a short position riding a major uptrend/downtrend, i dont know where the top/bottom is, so i tend to just stop at my TP, should i be trying a few trailing stops instead? This is why if you look at my trends, i've tried to trade both the major trend, and also the retracements using Fibacconi.

Thanks all.

MayZerG started this thread Only trade i made today was at 1:20pm, i was not sure how long it would last plus i had to leave for work at 2:30pm so i closed the position after a nice profit. Annoying though considering it rose a further 500-600 pips until reversing back towards yesterdays lowpoint.

Re: My FX Journal (Plz Help) :)

MayZerG started this thread Two trades took place today, again i jumped on the uptrend around 11am on EUR/USD and again i closed way too early! My timing is really off, will get this down eventually.
Taking a long on Barclays which i will hold for a few months, that a very good friend recommended i take a look at, i happen to agree with him.

MayZerG started this thread Been a good day once again, only 1 mistake which is i got caught during a retracement, was scalping from the 1-5min time frame, and ofcorse EMA is known for showing fake trends at times, i expanded it to 15-30min time frame, and longed the position with volume at 0.50 and i actually recovered it by £1 after closing both so was nice.
