Hi D70,

It was good chatting to you this morning mate. I'm not often on skype so drop me a text when you want to chat. I've left my number on skype for you.

Cheers,
Lee

Re: Lee Shepherd's Trading Diary

Lee Shepherd started this thread I'm looking at getting to London soon for a catch up with some like minded people and a good few drinks. I'll be looking to attend one of the IG seminars for a bit of fun then on to a few pubs to drink the night away then a curry - I'm staying out so no limit to time. This will be around IG main building (EC4R postcode area). If anyone is interested in meeting up then let me know. You can be a newbie looking for a laugh or an experienced trader wanting to let loose. Failing that you may be an old or new friend on here that fancies putting a face to a name (although I have a mug shot already).

Anyway, just to keep the journal up to date as best I can but more importantly showing my hand (as best I can), see the following attached for last months trades (30 days)

Total trades = 14

Wins = 8 @ £6,549.84 average of £818.73
Losses = 6 @ £3,047.67 average of £507.95

Biggest win = £2,615.99
Biggest loss = £1,367.51

Win rate = 57%
Trade ratio = 1:1.3 R/R
Monetary ratio = 2.14

Net = £3,502.17

Unfortunately I cannot be as transparent as I would like to be so same as usual I'm afraid when it comes to screenshots - a lot of the data has been removed as the levels are still in play - Sorry.

I've already got some trades stacked for this coming month but as yet have not hit the exit areas so are still in play. NB: These could still produce a small loss as most are not locked in yet for profit.

PS: the last lot of trades is on here somewhere but was not posted in my journal. If you're interested you'll have to search through my posts - there's not many these days though.

Cheers,

Lee Shepherd

Hi Lee , i've noticed in the open positions panel you have multiple positions with the same price ( closing/current ) , do you average down/scale in in your trades ?

Re: Lee Shepherd's Trading Diary

Lee Shepherd started this thread I'm not going to do any running commentary about how I did this and how I did that nor will I comment on how I did what I did when I did. Iíll just put it down to being lucky, the bottom line is just that, the bottom line and thatís all that matters. I think most of us are pretty bored of hearing whatís what etc, especially when we have our own trades to concern us about. Statements speak for themselves so I have posted mine for reference.

Keeping the journal up to date as best I can but more importantly showing my hand (as best I can), see the following attached for last monthís trades Ė to keep in with last statement it is dated from 28th March through to and including 30th April 2013.

Total trades = 22

Wins = 14 @ £9,096.28 average of £649.73
Losses = 8 @ £3,559.43 average of £444.93

Biggest win = £2,231.04
Biggest loss = £824.19

Win rate = 63%
Trade ratio = 1:1.75 R/R
Monetary ratio = 2.55

Net = £5,536.85

PS: Donít forget to take out or the black swan will fly away with it all

Unfortunately I cannot be as transparent as I would like to be so same as usual I'm afraid when it comes to screenshots - a lot of the data has been removed as certain levels may still be in play.

I've already got some trades built up and stacked for this coming month but as yet have not hit the exit areas so are still in play. NB: These could still produce a loss as most are not locked in yet for profit, although most are locked in for a small loss and/or break even.

PPS: I am expecting drawdowns in June so that will be a good month to see how losses in particular are handled. Although not yet set the drawdowns are expected to be as potentially high as £2k, this is due to the stop areas I have set for the target markets in play.

Lets see what this month brings and always remember that today's trade could be the start of a potential bad run that wipes us out. Having this in mind should help to keep the feet grounded at all times.

Cheers,

Lee Shepherd

When are we going out in town Lee? CV & Cablemonster are interested although CV might have to pull out at short notice given the nature of his non-trading work.

Hiya Rob,

I'll post up a thread about a meet up in London soon and see if we can get a decent group together, normally a lot of people say they'll go then don't turn up, I don't want to be the lonely guy at the bar paying for party girls to keep me company. Just looking round for some hostel I can stay at, so far the cheapest I've found is £30 a night.

Lee
