FINALLY into profit!!! And I swear, I'm never going to do what I did to get there again. Frustration took over, and I was just like 'Screw it' let's make a lot of money in one trade....lol
Needless to say, I met my trading goal for June so decision to keep trading or not is up to me. It would be nice to get ahead because I have to make another grand by the end of July in order to make that goal.
P.S. Already up 20% on new demo account in just a few days...one day it will be that easy for real account....lol
Hmm... you're a gutsy boy. You made almost a grand on that one pound short. 200 pips, $800 banked. And you held it for a day. Pff, that's a mindjob! Maybe was a big trade, but you don't have to play that big all the time ...
Hard to leave those hang-ups at the door, eh? I mean, when was the last time the checkout boy asked HOW you made that money? Never. Nobody gives a f...k. Just make money!!!
I was just fed up and tired of being below/at break-even lol.
Yeah, I would've made OVER a grand had 1) I waited a few hours to enter or 2) held onto the trade. The price went about 30-40 pips above my original entry before taking a dive down. And the original target was 1.6080, but then I moved it up a little because I thought the market would consolidate and I didn't want to wait any longer lol
Trust me, I don't play big all the time. Now I am back to my 2-3% risk per trade with SLs at 30-40 pips and TPs at 80-100 pips. On occasion I will play with tight SLs and larger positions, but that is only for 'no-brainer' trades.

Your worthless contribution to this thread is appreciated.
Talking about egos.....almost every one of your posts are some of the most narcissistic nonsense I've ever read. Sociopaths, as you claim you are, rank highest in narcissism. Narcissists do not succeed in this world. No wonder your partner ripped you off, I hope it taught you a lesson.
