- Thanks for comments. I am wholly new to all of this, so I am still reeling. (Actually, ThinkForex injured me by - without warning and in the middle of trading well - changing the leverage without notice even. Even after calling them and emailing them to confirm what I was told they still haven't repented. Yes, repented for their damage to me. They caused much losses, in fact. Remedy? They repent & pay me - I am not sure yet, but I will put a figure on it - a tidy sum or they will regret it. Trust me. I've seen curses fall on such people before. My trades - at 6 units per lot commission - translated into a nice figure for them, and I don't think they do rebates either. Correct me if I'm wrong.)
I watched how the market was moving and moved with it the best I could. I didn't pay attention to the FGB Indicator for the bulk of the trades. I got in and got out, usually, not leaving the trade open for too long at all. (I have two losing trades - one was made by a wrong button push...in my eagerness/tiredness - still open, hoping for a retracement on at least one...10 lots a piece I think, or close to.)
When you're using large lot sizes a small move translates to nice gains quickly. You don't have to 'wait for a big move' at all. I tried not to get greedy and I mostly did well at that.
Last night I started out with about 4,827 GBP (down from the horrid FGB performance when I started with 6000). In a few hours I was in the teens and going for 20,000, before the 'Compliance Team' shafted me. Sickening, actually.
I'll post anything I can. I am so new I don't know how - wait, screen shot? would that do?, of the MT4 results/trading history? And where would I post it...?@rob559
: You are right to warn me and I thank you for same. Foolish errors can cost one's gains...quickly. To quote steve: we need 'Nerves of Steel'. :)
