Hi Mike,

I'd like to submit my journal for the Feb competition please. The URL is



I'm hoping to make myself more accountable, pass the Earn2Trade gauntlet, start making some real money and help others if I can.

I'm looking forward to reading and keeping up with the other journals in the competition also, and wish everyone good trading

Ross

What I have learnt in my years trading experience is to keep losses minimum and let the winners run.

Not looking for prize just accountability. And to see how I do.

Good luck all. Cheers!

Its great to see such a positive community helping each other. In a lonely world of online trading there is power in community.

I am posting my journal here to start holding myself accountable to my actions in the markets.
Any critique or recommendations will be well received. Thanks to all who contributes to this site and puts the effort in to helping others on their journey.

Hi @peanuts1956,

You've already made the one post in this thread that you need in order to be entered in the contest. After someone has made a post here, members who want to view their journal will be able to click the link they placed in this thread and visit the journal thread. Votes will be tabulated on the number of Thanks you get in your journal.

Several posts in this thread are not necessary, and you don't benefit by multiple entries here.

To keep things simple in this thread, I am deleting the first post you made here in this thread two days ago, so the latest one will be the one that represents you in the contest. This is what you need, and you're good to go.

Thanks.

Bob.

Good day Sir. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for creating and running this site and to all of the contributors for the indicators shared and all of the other tremendous information this site has to offer. There are so many good indicators here that the price for the Elite membership is a steal of a deal. This site is a must for any trader. I have started to trade again on the currencies and from the 25th Jan. to today 3rd Feb I have taken 64 trades and only made $290 though I have an 84% win ratio. I had 54 winners ($1676.25) and 10 losers ($1386.25). My problem is allowing some of my losers to run for too long $468.75; $168.75:$112.5;$331.5 while cutting my winners short between $25 & $50 and overtrading last week (49 trades). If I can change this phycology and mentality asap I will be successful 3rd time around having lost about $10k in my previous 2 attempts including the cost of paid software and training (Shadowtraders & Ninjacators) Thanks again

P.S:I would like to enter and contribute to the 2 ongoing challenges but I am not sure of how to go about it. Please advise

Good day to you also. There are instructions at the very beginning of this thread and you can post a question in the question section. But I created my journal first in the thread called "Trading Journals". This is where you would post into what would be your trading journal. Your journal can be what you want it to be and say what you want. Then copy the URL for your trading journal and post it a submission inside the thread called "FIO Journal Challenge - Feb 2021 w/Topstep" which is the one you just posted in. I've been instructed that you only post once in the FIO Journal Challenge that creates the link to your trading journal inside FIO. Hope this helps.
