Just the start of a Forex Journal , written by someone (me) who doesnt want to day trade and be stuck at a screen all day.

I'm logging the trades to keep track of them and to be able to refer others to them.

Broker FXCM
Platform MT4

Basic trade info

I'm looking for a trending currency, and hope to catch a piece of the trend.
I will be placing trades on my laptop and checking them and maybe adjusting them with my phone. When I'm back at home I will be using the laptop to look for the trades. I will always be using a stop loss and sometimes a take profit order on trade entry.
