Thanks David.

Only time will tell if I'm a good trader or fail like the 95%.

If I am proven to be a good trader, I would love to leverage my skills. I've signed up with sites like fxstat, fxjunction, collective2, currensee that will allow me to indrectly manage OPM. Most of them are under the probationary mode-so i'm assuming sometime in Jan or Feb 2013, other people can start following me. Just search for 'TPOTrader'


Is there any reason that make you guys always lock up your balance, equity, etc of you published accounts on my fxbook? seen that severally


For me personally, it's just tacky. I think this is the only profession where you go around asking people how much $ they have or how much they make. Although it's true our job is money it's still taboo to some. Having balance/and profit locked gives some dignity-at least to me.

I'm with you on this though-about being transparent. I don't understand why some would hide their trading history. Open trades? sure-maybe they don't want you to freely copy their trades. but hiding trading history doesn't make sense to me. And so is not having trading verified or trading privelege verified. I also see accounts of supposedly 'fund manager' trading DEMO money. What is that about?

Like i said, i'm a full time trader. I do share my trading history WITH trading size lots for each trade. IF you want really want to know what kind of money i deal with just look at my trading history and do simple math. I don't trade pennies. I make sure i make several times my mortgage payment every month.



I checked your trading history and i can not find the lot sizes used, it does not make sense to me when one lock out all the published accounts infor, why not just make it private then? better.

really? this is the view I get when i signed out. It's under 'UNITS' just in case you're a newbie.

my last trade for example
8910000 units ($89.10/pip) x 23.8 pips = $2120.58

My account is connected via third party access with oanda. Oanda deal in 'units'



but anyways. it's a choice to privatize. what really matters is the % return. As Paul Tudor jones said

'After a while, the size means nothing. It gets back to the question of whether you’re making a 100 percent rate-of-return on $10,000 or $100 million. It doesn’t make any difference. If you complete 78 percent of your passes, it’d be nice if you were in the NFL, but if you’re in college or high school or even elementary school, I’m sure the thrill is just as great.'

I agree with above said, just want to add one important consideration. Not only % is important but what risked was taken to achieve that % is even more important.

8910000 units ($89.10/pip) x 23.8 pips = $2120.58 (6,75%)
So your balance about 30t.
with that balance you have opened 20lot. order?
very very professionally!!!

The difference is very big. the larger amount, the lower leverage...

If I'm not mistaken he traded 8.91 Lot. But risk is still too high anyway.

When i'm on a winning streak i tend to up my risk.- this is highly unusual

But end of every quarter, i recalculate my position - to be fixed for the next quarter. it's about that time of the year.
