12 Aug'10 : Self Destruction

Having an eye monitoring your EA trade is not a good thing. Emotion control which I can not bear to watch the draw down and add Equity Protection to safe guard $500. And also attempt manual trade to cover the lose lead to loss. Total loss include suppose to gain = $276.16. Which if I wake up late and did not go check PC, my balance will be 712.92 or + 42.58%.

Evening also crash one time result the UsdJpy no trigger.

To offset the human factor ROI, need to add +55.23% of Self Destruction.

17 Aug'10 : Offset Human Interruption; +55.23+38.68 = 93.91%

From 2nd week onward, the data feed to real account become slow, many trade only trigger halfway. And that trigger full tempt to get SL hit. And one time I close down the platform to delete all chart history and restart again, it miss one trigger of profit, probably data in chart still new not yet loaded all result miss trigger.

Analysis Report : 22 Aug'10

1. Trigger most time same one first week, the 2nd week trigger has delay and sometimes faster; max 6 trade not trigger same.
2. Because of delay and early trigger between demo and real, result different result.
3. To eliminate the max 6 trade trigger problem, it can set to have 1 trigger of fix lot size.

By export the data Statement into Excel, I have isolate each trigger and put them into pip profit.

Converting Chart 5 into 1 trade trigger by export data into Excel and isolate each trigger by taking only the first trade into pip.

<a href='' target='_blank'><img src=''/></a>

One trigger trade will have a more conservative of profit and smaller draw down.

To max out the profit, 1 pip = $3.00 USD will have about 55% ROI, DD around 70%.

Seem like better deal using 1 trade trigger.

Chart 5 has gone crazy with many trigger on UsdChf on 31 Aug'10, while other demo has no such trigger.

Real Account has trigger same as Chart 1,2,3,4. Only Chart 5 did not know why it has extreme trigger.

All i could say here is that there is much difference between demo trading and live trading, demo is just like you are in the dream word of trading know you can not die, even if you die in the dream, you can still wake up in the real world, but live trading is the real world, once you are dead, you are dead, so you have to plan ahead and see afar in other not to be obstructed in any danger, which means MONEY MANAGMENT in trading

If you manage your demo account in the same way you manage your live account, it means, you care much about your perforamnce and trading style than the money you are making, so you have a strong strategy, you are not gambling and this is a good point to succeed in trading.

Demo performance usually gets better than live. It is because in demo people remain emotionless. Trading with real money involves fear and greed. Due to those emotions a trader can't take right decision.

For me, demo is the best way to learn forex trading.

For many, the demo account is really very good, because I am there, we do not spend our own money and can fully practice ourselves.

It is true. But, in my opinion, both accounts are needed for completing the learning process.

This is still a very good opportunity to put the terminology into practice.
