DislikedYou forgot that he claims (in this thread i believe) that he was consistently profitable in stocks and options but prefers the challenge of FX trading instead of making profits.Ignored
Correction again :-
I was profitable trading stocks using mainly D1 data ( Stocks work well for that not Forex ) for 2years, I moved to Options being greedy and bored made stacks, got carried away and spent most of it thankfully then stupidly when 100% Puts ( Short ) and a strong market reversal wiped me out in the gap up pretty much over night!!
Didn't have the funds available to get back in sadly so moved to Forex, day trading stocks was my weakness I was damn good swing trader, so perfecting day trading has been an interesting challenge.
Also swing trading stocks took up 14hours per day, checking 100's of charts, going through stock screens, then watching the live market, don't have time / energy for that any more, so I'm after a as and when ever day trading system where I leave nothing on the table, in - out, do something else.
Down £1200 GBP over the last 6years, very on / off though, some years no trades at all from Forex.
I think I was +£16000 ish over 5years on stocks / options, I lost $6000 USD over night from a 200pip gap up doh!!
16K is still a CRAP wage for likely 20,000 man hours less than £1 per hour, another reason to give it up!!
Nothing to it, but to do it!!! Stick to the plan FOOL!!!!
