For the record, I know next to nothing about forex or daytrading. So we'll see if my simulated account survives while I learn! I actually placed my first order yesterday but didn't really know what I was doing and ended up losing 19 points. But ignorance is no defense so I'm going to include that trade in the running total. 6/27/07 1 Trade (1L) -19 points 6/28/07 2 Trades (2W) Trade 1 Short EUR/USD Entry: 1.3451 @13:35 EST Exit: 1.3442 @14:19 EST +9 points Trade 2 Short EUR/USD Entry: 1.3435 @15:07 EST Exit: 1.3429 @15:17 EST +6 points P/L since trading began: -5 points I didn't know about the FOMC announcement (like I said I don't know much!) so I got lucky on trade #1. Could have just as easily gone the other way and hit my stop.
