Who's re-entry on DAX?

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.

Like most gamblers I'm not addicted to winning, only to losing so I only show my losers.
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.

Agree , dont underestimate small profits they can accumulate nicely .

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.

Swings and roundabouts and all easy to say in hindsight. Anyone of those trades could have gone on to make 200/300 points plus.

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.

Once a gambler always a gambler, I said I wouldn't do anymore this week and then two minutes later I'm straight back on it.

Short usd/jpy with £220 locked in but with a little help from NFP tomorrow this has got at least 2k written all over it (y)

Stop now at 110.11 locking in £500 profit, normally I wouldn't but I need some cash in the bank to hit it again... don't think it will go back up to 110.11 anyway I'll still be rinsing it tomorrow for NFP (y)
