1-2 Years ago, i remembered i had learned in hard way from the market.

Opened manage account and lost around $25K , it is hurt me a lot and put me in traumatic state.
need one year or more so i can recovered my mental state.,
after i lost all investor funds,and because i offered my investor no risk manage account, so i must repay all of them and nothing left in my pocket.

Today i started to trade again and opened a new account with one simple objective.
Trying to survive with minimal funds.

so deposit around $50 and for broker i use tickmill because they are suitable for my needs, they have low minimum deposit

For trading system i try to trade with price actions and EMAs,

Hi there,

I use tick mill too with low deposit account.
I see lots of multi lots on NZD trade. Isn't it risky?

Regards
S.

audcad-d1-tickmill-ltd-2.png


Sell USDCHF
1. I saw Tower pattern ,
2.confirmed by engulfing at right leg
3.left leg already formed 2 waves



My reason why i opened Sell AUDCAD is simple , Because ad Daily Timeframe , my EMA will cross, and engulfing it self alreay formed. i just need today confirmation

For EUAUD , i use it as hedge instrument against USDCHF and AUDCAD
not bad. got good spreads when i entered this 3 trades

Hi ijak,
T2W welcomes members from around the world but, on occasion, this can lead to misunderstanding, especially when English is not the first language. Coming from Indonesia, I guess this applies to you. As such, may I confirm that I've understood you correctly . . .

Are you saying that - as a complete newbie - knowing little or nothing about the markets and with limited or no trading experience, you sought to attract clients in order to trade their money and pay them 15% per month? If this is correct, it's more than crazy - it's totally bonkers! What made you think you could do it and, moreover, did you actually get any clients (other than close friends and family who wanted to support you)?
Tim.

My fokus today is CADJPY, to find out the best price to buy CADJPY



cadjpy-h1-tickmill-ltd.png


My reason why i decide to buy CADJPY
1. W pattern
2.RSI Divergence

And if we compare USDCAD and CADJPY , why i buy CADJPY because few days ago, USDCAD had strong bearish trend ,
usdcad-d1-tickmill-ltd.png

and tonight we have crude oil inventories news and as far as i know , OIL and CAD have strong correlation

let me put it in this way bro, i have long experience in trading, and if i compare my self with other trader, i am just a newbie with limited experience in forex trading
why i decided to open a managed account?well that time i had experience making profits around 30% monthly, depend of the market.
because i am overconfidance, when my friends offer me to manage their money, without thinking i accept my friend offer.
and well, it was a nightmare experience.
because my friends act as a promoter for me. collect money from everywhere so i can manage that money.and in return i offer him 5 % of CLIENT MONEY MONTHLY
so i not only must generated 15% profit, but i must generated 20% monthly

and i remember that time, because i had plan to marry my today wife, i decided to trade with full margin, and you know the rest.

Still hold my Sell EURJPY, move EURJPY stoploss into trailing stop mode
Sell EURGBP , because at M5 , candle broke out the EMA 12,and met major resistance. put 10.0 pips stoploss,

got good spreads on EURGBP, 0.6-0.7 pips for EURGBP , not bad for cross pair

Finally i got Margin Call
Well redeposit my account and looking for signals with another trading instrument provided by my Broker,and i decided to trade the indices
After tried their demo to find out how much margin used for any indices
i decided to trade the US500 index (SPX500 index)

Reason :
1.M pattern
2.Engulfing
3.Their spreads looks lower than another index (40 pips, i think its like 4 pips in forex)

Sell 1 @ 1917.20
sell 2 @1906.20
Trailing Stop loss @ 1911.20
My worst scenario : i think am only reach BEP

Indices trading have different sensation, although the spreads are small, but we can quickly experience a plus or minus in one single moves
Closed profit +40$

and after that i bought GBPUSD and sold EURGBP
gbpusd-h1-tickmill-ltd.png
