I will keep track of my trades in this journal in the interest of keeping a historical record and hopefully to receive some good input from other experienced traders. In a year of forex trading I have had the most success on medium term trend trades with the Euro, cable, and swiss, so I am going to stick with them. Asian finance is an animal all its own, so I prefer to leave that to them and do what I understand. Trichet's central bank policy makes sense to me, while Bernanke is trying to destroy our country as fast as possible, so I tend to be long on the euro more often than not. When I feel the euro is overextended, I will either sit it out, or short the EUR/CHF. I prefer to buy retracements rather than breakouts. I am being mentored on some of my trading, but I will refrain from telling which trades are which to protect his signals. So I can't take full credit for all the wins, but its a nice bonus to be winning while you're learning, right? I've learned a lot, especially about market psychology and gut feel. So, without further ado, I will begin posting trades, along with my reasons for taking them. Feel free to comment on them and point out some technicals I may have overlooked.
