I thought this might be fun.

Post the number of trades you took today (each day, or as often as you can remember) and carry forward the subtotal. The goal is for us as a group to reach 100,000 trades.

Live trades only (no sim).

Mike

Best is to update after hours.. otherwise will be hard to update during trading hours & the count will be screwed up if a few are posting at the same time....

What is the error margin!!

Just need some clarification.

If I have a strategy that has 3 different targets, is this consider 1 trade or 3 trades?

3 lots/3 targets = 3 trades for purpose of this journal

300 lots/3 targets = 300 trades for purpose of this journal

+1 out this morning 8am european clock at the very lowest of Krack $26.6 (you just sometimes do not plan to wake up at the very right hour with no such anticipation. $28.5 would have fit me )
it's probably gonna be for a long time my most amazing wave prediction + swings memory in 7 years trading
