I have been tracking most of my losses and they are mostly in us sessions when small fundamentals are announced (volatility). Do you successful forex traders make more money when there is no fundamental announcements ? When the market has a natural flow. I also have been taking a beating these 2 last weeks. I use to settle for 20-30 pips and leave alot on the table. so I have been holding on longer but have lost money. I keep thinking this is a get rich quick business. Small profits consistently seems to be the name of the game. What sort of goals do you guys go for 100 's or smaller amounts? The experts say let your profits run and cut your losses. Easier said than done .
