Look folks I'm not claiming to be perfect and sorry if i don't answer your posts right the way. My goal is to become a professional trader not a professional poster.

I spent 3 and a half years from one strategy to the other from one advice to the other and now I trade my own stuff. Since i got it I stopped losing money.

I trade my real account with my real money so I believe it is up to me to decide what to trade.

I appreciate any advice but again I'm in this business long enough, I'm not a newbie anymore I have thousands of hours in front of this freaking screen. i'm here to record my progress ( or failure) so please folks give me a break.

I know I'm tired and grumpy ! 😕

Ok I'm closing my position for +70 pips. It got 5 pips from my 20 TP on the last entrancement. I'm tired and out of focus today, it seems that I'm gambling a bit. profits are always welcome but i'm better stop trading before I sleep in front of the computer and do something stupid.

See you guys tomorrow.

Do you have some totals of your trading? It's really hard to keep track without concrete numbers (pips will do it).

Thanks! 😄

Ok folks. FXbook don't let you update your first post as FF does so I posted on my bio all you guys can possibly ask ( me thinks) so I dont have to answer questions all the time.

I don't mean to be rude but I'm here to register my experience. My possible transition from loser to pro trader not pro poster.

 I'm a father of 4 kids and trying to handle a full time job with a remodeling project and trading so i don't have a lot of time like zero does 😁!

From now on I'm going back to the main reason why I started this thread.

Posting my trades.

Trading for me requires focus, 'lots of focus' so I don't trade with this forum in mind. When i have a minute I than come here and post but my main focus from 5AM to 12PM is trading my account.

I'm not here to give signals, tutor, or prove anything. The only benefit somebody can have from this forum ( in my view) is to see a real person hopefully going from bust to boom.

So please people from now on I'm not gonna waste time on parallel activities.

LOL, Oracle, you do not mean to be rude but you are 😄

If I had my own funds to trade and make living like you do I would not even bother to post anything here at all.
Generally we are both here doing same things. Turning from losing/ break even traders into profitable ones.

Sorry chikot but as I stated before I'm tired and grumpy today!😑

I'm far from making a living out of my account. I'm still trading 25 cents sometimes less per pip so you get the idea.

I agree with you about people that come to forums. I believe there is only 3 kinds of people coming here.

First- The losers. In this category I will include the newbies too. they come here trying to learn. being there done that.

Second- The break even. I put myself in that category. These are people that have a certain experience and are to the point of making or breaking in the business.

Third- The scammer. People that come here trying to make a buck or two offering illusions to the first group.


In four and a half years I never found a real millionaire posting in forums!

I agree with your classification.
Once someone makes it in trading, he dissapears from forums.
I am trading to make it and to prove myslef to prospective investors. This is the only reason I am here.

Honestly i don't see the point in getting 'investors' Chikot. As soon as you start trading big money flying under the radar is a lot more difficult. on top of that having to deal with all these people.

I want to trade my own money be my own boss and don't depend on anybody.

just my opinion.

I will post 5 FX Trades for you between 6:00 AM and 10:00 AM EST in advance of the trade and tell you why I did the trade.

I think that will help you.

Riskarb QUIT !!! He removed himself from the contest for the second time now. His drawdown was 99.97 yesterday and today he is gone.

Take care...

For that you need substantial capital to trade with small risk.
I do not, hence I am working on my skills to sell them.

I see nothing bad in having the Boss as long as I am treated well....
