Ok, I am starting a new journal. This time with the "disallow replies from users on my IGNORE list" option on.

I'll keep writing the same things I wrote on my old journal, "my journal". Go there if you need information about something I am referring to.

I am going to use the edit option before it's too late (you can't edit a post after 24 hours), to warn the administrator that the "disallow replies from users on my IGNORE list" option does not work properly. I tried posting and it won't let me (of course I am not on my ignore list), and I asked another member to post (and he's not on my ignore list), and it won't let him either. It looks as though this option has never been tried by anyone before, has it? Please let me know how to solve this problem and feel free to remove this thread if it cannot be fixed.

Let's see if it works. Someone on my ignore list please try posting here... ok, it works.

Ok, I am back. Maybe less talkative than before, because after 2000 posts I got a little tired. Plus the trolls, the patronizing, the ridiculing, have made me self-conscious. So I might apply a filter to myself and not write whatever is on my mind now, because of the trolls. I thought everyone in the UK was a gentleman, but there are trolls here as well. Anyway, they're all on my ignore list now.

Capital is still as low as before, at about 3500, but thanks to a little secret blog I started with a few selected non trolling and motivated individuals, I am now focusing more than ever on what I should be doing: as Douglas says, thinking in terms of risk/reward and probabilities. Not in terms of pride, and "I've got to be right on this trade". But in terms of: this is more likely to be right than wrong, so I'll make this trade, but if I'll be wrong I will not be wiped out. Enough for today.

Good online trading classes that I recently discovered:

Oh, and now I am reading Market Wizards, my favorite trading book after or before Trading in the Zone:

If I were... me, I'd go LONG on the EUR right now and stay long on it for the next 12 hours. However, I was me even 12 hours ago, when I went long on it, and now I am down 1000 dollars. I'll get out tomorrow and most likely I'll be at breakeven. Good lesson. Basically I should just trade from the time I get home to the time I go to bed. No need to trade when I wake up in the middle of the night. I could just go right back to sleep.
