re: my journal 2

travis started this thread Thanks for the link. I briefly checked it out. However, I am rarely a follower. I'd rather do things by myself my own way. I don't want to be a student of anyone. I'd rather do research and read on my own. I am self-taught. I am my own teacher. I don't like teachers in general. I like people who explain things clearly and people who answer my questions. I don't like the guru attitude, "come with us and we will teach you".

For the same reason, I was doing poorly in school. I didn't want anyone to tell me how I should see things. I like wikipedia. I can check it out whenever I am curious. I don't like: enrolling, subscribing, following. All school is based on enrolling. I don't like that. You take a class, can't really ask much, and you get judged a lot during the class. That's total crap to me.

self-control update

travis started this thread Today's self-control:

I got back to the good levels of when I started. This is thanks to my ongoing trade on the CAD, which has been keeping me off compulsive trading for days. And if I stay off compulsive trading, I am pretty stable.

Who's going to grab a screenshot of it actually at 200000? Or more attractive to me 199,999

Actually I just thought, a lot of them are probably bots from Russia or China trying to set up accounts to spam the forum.

re: my journal 2

travis started this thread To my compulsive personality this is a very important event: I've been checking that figure ever since it was at 195,000. Particularly because on top of this forum it still says "185,000 MEMBERS". I am getting restless and waiting for an update that says "200,000 MEMBERS". Tonight I won't be able to sleep over it.

self-control and automated trading updates

travis started this thread snap1.jpg

My self-control seems to go in trends almost like stock prices: a few days rising and a few days falling (not random). We'll see how it evolves in the future. Of course, in case I totally quit discretionary trading, I might remove that item: it has taken a lot of points from my self-control, as i rate it from 1 to 10, whereas the others are rated from 0 to 1.

Automated trading

snap3.jpg

My automated trading went so so, and it only made 500 (all paper trading), but still positive, so next week the signals will not need to be reversed. It seems, from my systems, that the DX will go down, and all currencies of course will rise towards the dollar. Really strange considering the Canadian Dollar, which is above .98. Had I made 500 dollars less, next week signals would have been reversed.

As far as discretionary trading, I've lost more money, and it looks like i will have to take that loan so I can quit it altogether, and resume my automated trading.

Once I invest the loan's money and start investing with my automated systems, I better make money fast because in less than two months, I have a holiday coming up with my highschool friends, and I'll need to run my systems from a server overseas (at a friend's), which will cost me about 1000 dollars, as he'll have to buy a server and run it for me.
