The complete newbie

Hi ! I'm a complete noob, never ever traded. I'm 28 from France, C++ soft eng for a US based financial company.

I'm trading on a demo Alpari (uk) account (1K€), a real micro alpari uk account (200€) as well as ten demo to try different EA on diff brokers.

What this journal will contain : everything related to my trading. Manual + auto results and experimentations. May also contain valuable links related to my trading learning.

Goal : learn manual trading on REAL account with small quantities because obviously playing on demo is less stressful..
Also, I'm writing some MT4 EAs

Today ; EURUSD Demo
Morning chart analysis:
