fxwinner,

At the conclusion of this It would be interesting to see how well each ccy pair did to see if all your profits were gained through a small subset of the pairs you traded.

Also, are you trading all ccy pairs the same size (I would hope not)?

I have some rules hoggums.

1. never have more than 2-3 trades of the same currency - ie, if i have gbpjpy and audjpy then eurjpy is not an option unless its really really attractive and then after that deffo no more jpy pairs

2. never have more than 2-3 trades that are not locked in to profit. the 2-3 all depends on the leverage used. If i use 5:1 per trade then only 2 and if 3:1 each trade then max is 3. when one goes into profit it frees up a potential new trade and the only thing to do with the runners is trail the stop (which i use 5X atr)

as for the same size, yes I am. I'd like to be able to scale in as a trade gets bigger but havent yet found a comfortable way of doing it.

I'm starting to get that horrible intraday trading feeling. ... this is why i went to 4 hour plays in the first place.

best be careful now.
