I'm sharing the recent swing trades I made on dbFX and Oanda. dbFX doesn't keep the arrows on the chart, so I edited the pics to mark the entry and exit points. I'm not liking dbFX, low liquidity (sounds absurd) and/or stop hunting. I'll close my dbFX account soon and move funds to Oanda. Oanda has also the advantage of unlimited flexibility in position sizing, which is great, as I can scale in/out any quantity I want.

I started swing trading again on 29 of september, so far I had 2 losers and 5 winners, with a total profit of a bit more than 6500 (the most part on the silver trade, I was so sure about this trade that I took a bigger position). Swing trading is way more relaxing than day trading, you have plenty of time to look at a position or a candidate trade, and also can incorporate fundamentals in trading decisions, while in day trading you have to react fast.

I'm taking a break with day trading, I didn't find a way of day trading which is compatible with my daily job. Overall I lost some bucks (not much) but it's not about money, it's about being unable to do both day trading and working. Maybe I'll give a try to develop an automated system, don't know, I need to elaborate more on this. For the moment I'm taking a break.

I re-entered a long silver position after the NFP today. I think it will resume the uptrend.
