was running a test pattern on the yen today and found out ,even in sim mode on TST ,you can get stopped out from trading and had to jump to sept to recoup the best amount of cash that i could grab ,

I am getting more comfortable with there trading platform after nearly 3 weeks ,i only made 2 small mistakes today ,

there will be no trading today ,as i am taking mental time to let TST platform style plant firmly in my brain-

will be taking the 150k combine shortly ,i believe its 12k has to be cleared in 20 trading days ,so will target 600 clear per day,with a max lot of 3 contracts ,

next week i will finish out my sim month and will try to clear 1 k per day with a minimum of trading ,

time will tell
