In addition to all the other advice new traders may find here, I will add a suggestion of keeping a trading journal. I have logged every trade since May 2005 - win, lose, draw. The reasons for entering a trade, strategies, &c. - a 'post-mortem' on losing trades, and also on winning trades. Every trade includes a chart picture showing entry/exit points, along with the indicators used for the particular strategy. It's often enlightening to review those historic trades to see the lessons learned.

I'm currently running a few robots - along with some manual trades. I only post the robot trade info once a week, at the end of the week - just the bare facts/results. Manual trades get the full treatment - analysis, ticket #, s/l, t/p, $/pip, post-trade chart image, &c.

Good trading,

You can do that on your trade history, just click the little pencil, can even put your charts in there.

We had a bearish day in the leading Market Indexes. Fed's Yellen speaks tomorrow at 16:00 GMT+1.
Tomorrow the market might recover responding to the speech.

Happy trading.

Although Yellen has emphasized the economy isn’t meeting the Fed’s goals, the markets recovered from yesterday's decline.

It's always the same thing, on Fed's days, buy buy buy....
