No trades today!
Strange, given that I had around £140 to blow, and all would still be good.
I decided that I would split the 140£ (leaving me 3,510 profit as a winning challenge) into 2.
Thats 70£. Thats about a 40-pip risk trade, if I traded 0.25lots.

Anyway, I still was aware of going for winning trades, and not just place a notional trade just to crank one step closer to Minimum Days.

This week had 3 trading days: +158, +608, +1240, for a positive +2,000£-ish.
I consider the 1240 as a windfall day, as in truth, I think I was gifted about 400-500 by US30.
Thank you US30! (y)

Hope you had a great week. Have an even better weekend.

Oooooh, thats interesting.

I took two small trades, winners.
They still havent been updated on my Journal.
(supposedly, updated every 10mins or so.)

Why?
Am I being paranoid?

My FTMO account still hasn't updated yesterdays 2 mini trades.
Nor has it recorded todays trade, a winner.
I am concerned!

Anyway, it should be showing 4-green ticks, with an overwin of around 200£.

I would write to customer support using the button from the client area with the account screenshots (account number visible). I always got answers within less than 24 hours, while mails were not answered sometimes.

I'm not sure, but it looked like there were some issues - or bad broker actions - today with the US100 pricing. I was missing the 1 minute 15:45 bar in MT4 for minutes - maybe the broker halted the price feed for more than one minute. The bar appeared 2 or 3 minutes later.

The Contact Us button is BLANK.
I have emailed them the Tickets missing, complete with screenshots.
I will wait till tomorrow morning, giving them overnight, in case some "end of day" function could reset it. If not fixed, I will have to call them.

I even tried logging out of the MT5 platform, and re-logging in afresh via the "Login to Trade Account" . No difference.

There is a gap on the US30 of missing Minute bars. 17:36 to 17:41 missing.
I have noticed lots of glitchy stuff on US30 recently, so swapped back to DAX.
Also, switched to 5-mins as 1-mins are all over the place.

Reading the analysis is a sobering experience.
They have no emotional attachment, so their views and insights brought me a clinical insight.

Negatives: I have a negative RRR. (0.98)
They say that this may be an issue long-term.
Also, the ratio between the Max Profit (418.14) and Max Loss (-587.23) is negative at 0.71.

My view is that the last couple of days trades were just to pass the Challenge, so were throwaway trades.

I acknowledge the size of wins and losses, but these were outliers.
The single losing day, of -972.12 was an anomaly, where I sort of managed my way out.
Firstly, I shouldn't have let it get away so far. Secondly, I should have taken the aggregated loss of around 300 when I had the chance. (Sep 16th)

I had 9 winning days averaging 519.34, and losing day of -972.12.
If I can replicate this consistently, I would be ahead most of the time!

Here again, the last 2 days of piffling trades skews the Avg Day lower.

Learning Moments:
Take the loss! (I have a real problem here, as averaging out I am finding is better, but FTMO rules doesn't allow a wide enough Drawdown for me to trade like this.)
Also, no holding over the weekend doesn't fit well with hedging and aggregating, unless opened in the earlier half of the week.

Still musing over the (small lots & large number of pips) and (large number of lots & small number of pips) conundrum.

Either way, this is a good format to trade, I think.

I have got my e-Certificate!

I have been sent my credentials for the Verification Phase.

Wondering if I should stick to this thread, or start a "V for Verification" thread.
(cant think of any sci-fi films whose titles I can parody)
