Increase Lot size 50% next week maybe, maybe the week after. Account is up 40% since I last increased Lot sizes!

The next increase, from $15 to $20 won't take as long, as it's only a 33% increase.



That trade, faked a down, spiked back upto a downtrend line tracked down it perfectly and is heading lower.

What I should be doing is, shorting near said line, but still not there yet for those trades, confidence wise, arrgghhh yes it's annoying me.

Finally settling down to a nice little profitable method, all Forex pairs are removed, trading DAX mainly, Dow and SPX secondly but only trend days, Forex just seems so random compared to.


Hoping getting to a automatic level, where I can trade via the Ipad while out and about and working, which should help.


New method, just keeps surprising me how good it actually is

Work tomorrow am, but okay 3G signal there maybe even 4G hmmm 4G, should be back for US open!


Friday, Trading till 3ish hopefully!


+35 today, want to start hitting my +60's daily and SOON!!

Up contract to $15 per pip, next week, maybe the week after if all keeps going well ( Spot gives me more flexibility )

Leave YM and SPX at $5 until more experienced, but go $7.50 at some stage.


Easy money 8 profitable trades in a row, that's some good going ( jinxed myself there or what )

Arrrghhhh Blew the account coming soon!
