I've been cleaned out anyway, abandoned the usd/jpy short and tried to get back long on gbp/usd. No point uploading a screenshot of an empty account lol

I'll be back on Monday for another attempt, too risky today and tomorrow with NFP as my stops are far too tight to be in with any chance.

Until proven the account is not empty. I think you are hiding a big win.

You are addicted to big wins. Those are so rare that being addicted to them is fatal. With all the smaller paper profits you had, you could have combined them into a big win. But you chose not to.

Perhaps the problem isn't about trading/gambling but something outside of these.

Sorry for being critical. You claim to being a gambler but you are not. You need to man up and be a real gambler and remove those stops. I am no gambler and I don't use stops. What are you afraid of ? Don't be a **ss.

You guys keep forgetting this is a gambling journal not a trading one, my plan from the start is to get a massive win abusing leverage and that's what I'm going to do. I can afford to lose the money and it's a great laugh that's all I'm interested in, no different to walking into a casino with a few hundred notes in your pocket looking for a good night out.
