That is a good idea, having another test or CFD account where one can trade for killing time or urges...

I am wondering what is the cost to compete in the combine with your settings?

This is normal 150K/20days Combine so $400. The customized version would be $450...

Nice performance.Good luck for the rest of the combine.
Just a little query....what EST time are you trading the gold? I see the june contract has a poor liquidity...do you manage to get fills with more than 5 contracts?

Thanks, you can check the time of trades from the charts of logs, time there is CST, for EST just add 1 hour. This is demo, but T4 emulates slippages more less fine, on entries I get positive slippage most of the time. The fill will be always full with stop market order, the question is slippage. With limit or stop limit you may get a partial fill.

Are you getting positive slippage on limit orders? I can't see that happening much with real money trading. Can you give an example - maybe I am defining slippage differently.

Thanks

No, stop market orders. I have seen 1-2 positive slips live before on my own account. On limit order it's either no slippage or partial fill IMO. On Forex you can get positive slippage on limit orders regularly though.

Today was a short trading day. Low volume again, but not as low as yesterday. I did take 2 trades only, both winners. I am happy with both trades. First was 11 ticks good and that was pretty much that market offered before the pullback - closed on stall. Second was for 27 ticks, it did run around 60 ticks but I closed on stall in front of strong recent support that lasted multiple tests for several hours, even though it did go lower, it reversed from there, so I am fine with it. Today I traded as per my plan with 3 cars each trade and my profit is over 1100. I trade less and less and make more and more. I like it alot. I am not trading for adrenaline rush or to kill time. I am in it for money and self-development. It allows me to live the lifestyle I love. I went out today with my bicycle and rode 25 kliks. I am happy to do that instead of mincing the market to squeeze few more ticks. Slow and steady win the marathon.
