After 4 years of agonizingly slow growth, I finally had the week I've been working towards. 2 shorts of GBP/USD netted me a total of 174 points. (Charts or Myfxtrade link provided on request) I'm trading live, using Oanda's prop. platform fxTrade but I just downloaded NinjaTrader 7 and Kinetick's feed and I'm back to being quite stupid.
I want access to as many markets as I can (for American traders) but I don't know how to organize the glut of information into a simple (preferably graphical) easy to memorize format. Please be aware I am retired on disability and short of cash for now. I've traded the GBP/USD live exclusively for six months trying to become familiar with one instrument and I'd like to begin to expand my harem of beauties - if you follow my meaning.
I'm working through introductory NT7 videos and hopefully it won't take forever to get a handle on how to set up, access feeds and complete order management tasks.
I hope I made sense here. I'm temporarily overwhelmed with NinjaTrader/Kinetick + New Markets + New Instruments and if possible, I'd like to simplify the process of organizing this monster - tip: I think visually and I like pictures... if that helps.
ChristosZora, I usually risk 2% and have wildly varying r:r - the why of which, I don't understand. I use my full NAV on each trade, if that helps.
DavidHP, thanks for that. I don't have any kind of a support network so everything I do is in my head which is an interesting place on the best of days. I've traded GU all year and it just finally started moving with some noticeable structure, which is nice. But it's been a tough year otherwise.
