Simple advice but it can turn around your trading
 
this is my finding on manual trading after 10 years of being associated with markets.


Manual trading with SL is almost impossible, you must be genius if you are using SL and yet you are profitable for long run.

try and remove SL and you will be profitable in no time.

You should post this thread in trading discussions not in journals...nobody looks here.

Anyway i am replying here to Wavegarrick so not to take anymore space on eurusd thread:

{quote} Hi Stillearnin, The point for me is simple. I see too many guys trading 1$ lot sizes with a small deposit. Of course you have to use stoplosses when you use high leverage. I certainly would not sleep if I knew I had a 1 dollar trade open and no stoploss. So if you break that 1 dollar lot size down to .01 cent trades you would have to get it wrong 100 times before you are in the same position. I do not think anyone can get it wrong 100 times. It is a case of odds and probabilities. Hope this gives you more clarity. Trading is a marathon...
I understand that you have to use super small lots but it still doesn't add up to me. First, you are cutting into your profits severely by using super small orders whereas you can be 40% winner with stops, have a good risk/reward ratio and it will still get you there. Pain free. Then there's also the story of a trader (forgot his name), that entered a long on usd cad at 1.4275 or something like that beginning of 2016 and 2 years later he was still in the same trade.
Now if he would have done what you said and continued to add 99 more positions to his original trade, he would have been broke by now. There are many stories of people that took cent accounts to really large ones only to bust them eventually because of that 'one trade' that went too far against them. All it takes is one trade.

Stillearnin, not sure why you posted my reply in this thread because my response was to your post in the Eurusd thread. Nevertheless, I will try and answer.. You have to see trading as a business. There is no one trade makes or breaks in forex. I for one will make mistakes by getting my entry wrong but I can regroup and look at where I got it wrong. A high leverage trade is simple make or break and high pressure . You could probably see my method as scaling in. I have 50 plus trades open at any given time with low leverage trades. It is nothing to see a day close of 1000 pips plus. would you do this on a 1$ lot trade? Trades come in in pockets or baskets and I do trade 28 currency pairs. There is no set target per pair or special attention to trades in particular. It is the overall basket that matters.

Most important is to keep your margin levels healthy and in check.

Cheers

{quote} Ok buddy That's safe, always have an income extra forex. Keep going dont give up your time will come.
try to read again, I am living solely from forex income from last many years, and pls avoid editing posts once it is posted because thats not really a honest thing to do.

anyways my advice is for serious people who really want to be successful in forex world. those who have other ideas can follow their own ways.

prove us right by showing your LIVE account explorer after trading for ten years using NO stoploss strategy. don't simply give advice when you can't owe up to it. geez, this thread should be moved to rookie's section.

I do have trade explorers attached on my profile, few real few demo, public and private when I will really see the need to post the pictures I will do so.

till then read my first post 10,000 times more to grab what it really means.

Enjoy

I appreciate your honesty of using no stop loss

but we always learn since the beginning of entering the forex world that trading without stop loss is like suicide

nonetheless we also all know that there is no magic in this game, and no holly grail so how can we trade without stop loss if we surely know that not all trades we take can be winners,

would love to hear from you

please show your real account instead of your student's ones. why should i learn from you if you don't show me how profitable you are?

Also, no demo account. Anything below 10k account is laughable. Any explorer less than one year is also laughable. Who are we kidding.....
