FX Day Trading Journal 2013

  1. Hi All,

    I have been trading FX for about 2 years, and have been on a down swing in the last 3 months. So I thought I would start a journal, and people can comment on my trades. I have only about $16000 on two sites (IB and forex.com).

    I will be day trading Fiber and Cable.

    Entry - London Open or New York Open

    Exit - London Close or 1600GMT

    Max Risk - 2% per trader or 3% daily

    My goal is about 50 - 70 pips a week.
  2. Did not trade today, as I usually dont trade on NFP days.
  3. No trade today. Patiently waiting for my setup.
  4. Took a small long fiber trade, very small size tho. Still trying to claw back the losses and rebuild confidence.

    Net about +25 pips, +128.3.
  5. Long Cable. Slowly increasing my trade size.

    Net +22 pips, 130.0

    Not sure if it has the battery to run to the 1.5780 area today.
  6. No trade today. was gonna short Cable in the 15670-15680 area, but price actions became choppy and felt like it didnt want to fall.

    Probably done for the week too.
