Results Statement‘Free advice doesn’t mean anything for most people.’’ — Dr Van K. Tharp
Attached herewith are the trading results for the last week. The results are similar on live and demo accounts – only equities are different.
The pairs are GBPUSD, EURUSD, EURJPY, and AUDUSD. Honestly each of these pairs would have hit my targets if I saw my charts when my entry conditions were met. I was doing some forex training at an international training center. The Moving Averages had already indicated potential bearish movements, but I was only waiting for the RSI to confirm these. When they were confirmed, I wasn’t online, and before I knew, the trends had gone too far. I could still ride them and win, but I prefer not to enter late signals unless there are reversals against the trends. This action doesn’t guarantee any accuracy however. If I knock my head against the wall for missing nice trades, what would I do if I miss bad trades as well? Opportunities are always ahead, and sitting in front of your PC 24/7 doesn’t improve any data.
NZDUSD: Buy = -$162.75
EURGBP: Sell = -$249.44
USDJPY: Buy = $132.20 (62-pip trailing stop applied)
EURNZD: Sell = $309.84 (82-pip training stop applied)
USDCAD: Buy = $$291.02 (74-pip trailing stop applied)
EURAUD: Sell = $281.49 (80-pip trailing stop applied)
I was able to make over 6% returns last week – risking only 1.5% per trade. The battle continues this week. We have no control over the markets. It would take a mad genius with a significant amount of criminal energy to even think of manipulating trades against a broker!
Surfing the markets when your capital is at stake is no picnic. The markets are a battlefield; and no-one goes to battle without adequate training. There’s no Holy Grail anywhere (only risk management makes the difference) Top traders may even have more losers than winners and still survive; because of a sensible positive expectancy.
But if you’d been battered by the markets before, you can still make it. Falling down doesn’t spell a failure; staying down is a failure. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced trader, you still have much to gain here. There are veterans of the markets and gifted instructors @www.fxinstructor.com.
