This pair turned just as my TP was hit. Well timed
I must admit I must tighten up on my discipline and get my calculations correct. Although this was a good trade with good profit, my risk is only supposed to 5% of my initial capital which is $250 and looking at a 2:1 R:R, I should only have made $500 here. This also shows in the previous two trade where the miscalc meant a loss of 415 and 390 dollars.

mentormeplease started this thread EURUSD and AUDUSD lined up quite nicely. Saw it too late thought, they've already taken off (without me )

mentormeplease started this thread Losing trades on friday and monday. Still battling to post them due to the annoying error but will try and do so again tomorrow. Fridays USDCHF short was disappointing as I had a very tight stop and got stopped out. We all know what happened after that. Even captain currency called it and it could have ran into good profit.

SL is wide so TP is high as well but will monitor closely and make adjustments where required.

mentormeplease started this thread Stops on both trades moved to BE. I should have taken some off but I'm looking for 2:1 R:R.
