The Weekly

Oscar Reed started this thread First week with 3 accounts running.
The SAXO and iress accounts suffered this week.
Spent more time with the CMC platform.
Changing the system layout 2 or 3 times, seem to be okay with it now.
Not great charts, but the fraction orders are great with a small account size.

Signs that my flow with the AUS shares is starting.
Need to be able to hop out of bed and know the highs and lows for the last 5 days.
Just not at that flow level yet.

Coming up to month end so be interesting to compare Saxo and Iress from the end of last month.

Sunday Is

Oscar Reed started this thread The day I load the orders for Monday and maybe some fills for later in the week.
Sometimes a big move on Monday makes them later week orders void.
Most Sundays take about an hour to load this.

With the Iress platform can not load orders over the weekend.
So either load late Friday, or work lunch break on Monday.
On an I-pad which is not great for creating but okay to modify.

CMC First Week

Oscar Reed started this thread Just quick look at trade on CMC for last week.
Was a mixed bag, have attached statement of trades.

Not sure what it tells me, or will help me next week.

Also trading US 100 on the platform.

Defensive Game or Offensive Game

Oscar Reed started this thread Became a bit defensive towards month end.
Trying to protect what I got for the month.
Not taking some trades and cutting winners too quick.
Something to look out for next month.
Need to work the full month, even if its means holding trades at month.
Even holding loosing trades.
Or should I carry on with the defensive play.

The beat goes on

Oscar Reed started this thread Have closed the CMC account, just not for me.
Slow to load and close orders.
Don't offer orders being done on the charts.
This slows me down a lot and was getting lost with not seeing where my pending orders were.
Also hated there charts, not very clear.
Have attached proof and 35 dollars for a couple of weeks.
But good experience of a platform that did not suit my needs.

Still very happy with Saxo markets and starting to like Iress
Maybe like is pushing the boat out a bit.

Looking at putting my 3k account with FXCM, will update.

September

Oscar Reed started this thread Numbers for last month.
SAXO ticking along and Iress still a mess.

Still all swing trades, spending 20 to 30 mins each day broken into 4 checks.
And one hour max at the weekend.

Not keen on the FXCM platform.
Had a look at tonight on demo.

Another Week & New Month

Oscar Reed started this thread There is a light under the tunnel with Iress.
Feels a bit of wasted couple of weeks with CMC.
Saxo suffered a bit with this.
Also slowed trading with month end in the middle of the week.

Going to give FXCM a go, will update more during the week.
Once 3K account set up and running.
