For the background, I have been trading on and off for two years, first equities then moved to FX. I have been interested in automated systems for about a year and developed one for EURUSD. I will be trading the final version of the program on this currency pair and I will be clearing through IB. The purpose of this journal is to keep me focused on steady performance and to keep clear of wild discretionary trades. I will post try to post results at least weekly. My goal is about 10 to 20% a month on an account that is about 3200, depending on where the markets open today.
