someone asked me about floating orders. it ranges from positive to 4 0r 5% red. When I reload, it will be mostly red. The closed trades have kept it manageable. trading 6 pairs at .05 of a lot. Since Sunday results are about net 7+%. I have to sleep or results would be a little better.

Boulder you had a great day too!!! You are better at holding out for those 10 pips. I closed my 1.1180 only for 6.3 pips. I was so tempted to take that USDCHF trade with you yesterday. Nice trade



Cheers

What a day! That US data was super green. Coupled with awful Euro data it just had to fall. Immediately I saw the US data I got heavy shorts in at 1214 with SL at 1.1230. Had lots of patients to see today so didn't check charts until few minutes ago. Closed half at 1173. Holding remaining half with SL already moved into one pip profit. It'd be great if price just collapsed from here to 1.11 where I'd like to book the remaining.

Good day!

Horrible day. Great that everyone is measuring dicks. If there was/is a sensible trading plan in this cockamamie environment I'd love to hear it.

Things are getting bad in Hong Kong. Right at the time GB and U.S. are changing moral support. This dont look good for democracy.

just trying out a strategy. net 12 now. I did tweak it some. i could reduce to .025 and have a decent return with less drawdown. even .01 would be a good return. The trick is. Will it work long term? the kink on the chart is me being wrong about direction. That kink is most of my 1% loss.

I pride myself in entering EU within 2-3 pips of turning points, but since last week I haven't been able to manage such feat for the first time. We get support breaks and before you say Jack they spike it up again to 1.1230. Tired of the spikes. If the sell will happen without me, fine. I'll find a way to scalp pips at extremes of ADR.

I am a medical personnel and as such don't have all the time on my hands. I am most active on the EURUSD ONLY thread. Since last year most of my trades are posted there in real time with entry, SL and TP. Both the good and bad trades are all posted there. I earned my stripes there. I come on this thread because of the priceless info that Boulder and Gator give out daily. If I didn't post there then I didn't have the time to do so, having to see almost 30 patients each day. Finally, I trade EU 99.99% of the time. I cannot replicate such ability with any other pair.
