Trade 1: Buy @ 6547.25, out at 6541.25, - 124,44$
Trade 2: Buy @ 6531.25, out at 6538.25, +135,56$

Just as an FYI, the way we would write those profits here in the US is you put the dollar sign to the left of the number, and you use a decimal instead of a comma:

- $124.44
+ $135.56

I mean obviously it's not hard to figure out, but I notice a lot of people not from the US do it like you do. Is that's the way one would actually write that where you are or do you just put US dollars in the same format as say you would a euro or whatever currency you use where you are?

yep, this how we in Europe use it:

1k = 1.000,-- and not 1,000.--

Struggling day today, had 2 trades where i expected momentum to continue so i moved my target beyond the 1:1,5 risk:reward, unfortunately price reversed right back and those where break even trades, also missed 3 nice trades (21 points) during the first 10 minutes of the US session since i had to get my son from school.

In the end i made a small loss today (183,28$).

Edit: i am also testing my current strategy in stocks, all entry's there are made at the last 15 minutes of the session and most trades last between a few day's and a few weeks. I have been demo trading stock CFD's for a while now and results look very promising. If someone knows a broker where i can demo trade stocks (except SureTrader) please let me know.

I am using volume charts, by doing this i get much more entry's in the same time period and the stops are smaller.
With time based charts there was so much movement inside a bar that i couldn't trade and so missed out on a lot of trades, with volume bars i do get to trade these movements since there are much more bars in the same time period (obviously depending on the amount of volume for each bar).

Calling it a day, had 10 entry's today but never got the moves i was looking for.
I might come back for the last hour or so but probably not.

Profit for today is only 100,6$, however i am glad i came out profitable, the first 90 minutes i was breaking even at best.
