Depending on when those 180 minutes are you could go two ways.
1. Find a good scalping method were you take 5-8 pips 3 to 5 trades (remember to include the spread).
Use high leverage - 1 Standard Lot ($10 dollars per pip) x 5 pips = $50 x 3 trades = $150 per day.
2. Trade a high time frame like 4 hour or Daily. You can watch several pairs for setups. Set pending orders with stops and monitor daily. Should take about 60 minutes to analyse and manage 6-8 pairs.

Just a thought.

Good luck and happy pips!

180 minutes at full concentration should be enough for a day.
lower the time frame to M15 or M5.
High lot size ( standard).
your hand on the mouse, take profit after every 15 pips and
loss at 20-25.
You should manage a couple of winners maybe upto 100 pips daily.
That should be enough cash for three hours work.

100 pips sounded great; however I am still learning how to cut the lose quick XD
I just had so much bad experience to let the loser RUN in the pass sigh.

Ouch! to that Chi.
Place your stop loss when opening the order,
you can omit the take profit and trail you
profit.

Danny, yeah later on I learned to take profit and moved stop to break-ever and so on. I felt pretty good about it ever since, and right now i am just trying to master the timing either i should move it to the break-even or just close it all when the section is over.

Well, 3 hours is enough time to make good amount of money from forex. If you can't give lots of time in trading, you can do position trading, which is pretty handy for busy guys, or you can set up pending orders not just with price also with times, many broker has that kind of pending orders. Forex has total 15 types of orders including off line trail stop. So, you can use it according to your needs. You can set up mobile price alert or news alert too. No need to stick in front of computer all the time. Be free!

Made several mistakes and lost all gains from earlier, and guess what happened next?


I enlarged the risk by 10 times on the AUD/JPY 100.00 mark faded away trade... and won.

my luck stays today...

180 minutes per day

This is interesting in that one needs to decide
who their true lover might be

And when you decide what are you giving up
to receive a little of the other

180 minutes. It might be all you need
to achieve the best of both ???

180 minutes of COMPLETE LUCIDITY

If it's crap why even bother, go do something else pal.

P.Dean, I admit sometimes I really hate it.

But if I quit today, I quite everyday in my life. And this is not my ego talking.
