Last week Friday was Friday the 13th and some people consider that an unlucky day. Does that mean I shouldn’t trade? Of course not. The only unlucky thing about Friday the 13th is that we had to put up with those horrible movies. Although I traded on Friday the 13th, […]
Well, this wasn’t a good week for me. After coming off a great July, I tried to force trades and didn’t wait for good setups. August is typically a more volatile month to begin with, which magnified the problem. Here are the trades for this week: http://www.tradingheroes.com/losing-trades/08032009-gbpjpy-trade (-107 pips) http://www.tradingheroes.com/losing-trades/08042009-gbpjpy-trade […]

A losing week but I ddin’t lose much on a dollar basis and I was actually positive in terms of pips per trade. I can live with results like this.

Woohoo, this was the best week in awhile! Four trades and no losers, not too shabby. Of course there is always room for improvement but I think this is a great starting point. I need to be able to maximize winners and bring up the average profit on my winners. […]
All losers this week. It was frustrating because I could have been profitable if I had taken money off the table when I had a chance. The first trade on the 9th had a good profit that I should have taken off the table. My goal is to find one […]
This was a short week with only three trading days. I made two trades this week: http://www.tradingheroes.com/winning-trades/06292009-gpbjpy-trade (+32 pips) http://www.tradingheroes.com/winning-trades/06292009-gbpjpy-trade-2 (+8 pips) Total profit is +40 pips. Not too many trades, but a good week.
