DAY TRADING CURRENCIES

Flat at the end of the day..strictly day trading...one of the most despised, derided and misunderstood occupation..
I trade EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD, GBPCHF..

I opened an account in March 2012 with 20K...then added 10K a month later...
I lost money every year except one in the last 12 years... day trading.. for that reason i don't think i need a larger account...

I've been lurking on ET for almost 10 years.. with 70 posts i'm clearly low key...

Let's see if i can make money this year... I'm trading a new strategy...I'm slightly up after 2 months and half...i don't really have a monetary goal..if i could not lose money that would be pretty cool..


I will post blotter daily and equity curve weekly

lousy day..went off strategy wasn't getting signals

took couple of shorts in GBPCHF where it should've turned and it didn't got stopped then reversed and went long finished in the black

i have a strategy, more like a framework with plenty of room inside it for discretionary elements..

i get strong hunches about where price is headed
sometimes it's agonizingly difficult to resist the temptation to act on them..

later i took a trade in EURUSD according the plan and it went fine..


+132 USD
