Thanks, so much, for the encouragement my friend...

It is no wonder why only around 10% make it to be profitable... The time alone spent, must weed out
50% quickly !!! ... but I have plenty of time at this point in my life (out of the studio, of course) and now
that I'm not losing money, I know it is just a matter of time. Failure is not an option. Trading is part of my
life now.

The technical part is well in hand - perhaps 75% of where I want to be.
The Emotional side is my demon - 50% to the goal, at best.

I am learning the "character" of the moves of the EURO / Dollar more everyday, and I think it will
be a good instrument to work out my Live Trading demons...

Thanks again, Bob

You still are a musician, no? You still play guitar, and enjoy it, jam with your buddies? Then you can play guitar.

Of course, there is always someone that you can play better than you.

I'm sure you play guitar better than 99% of the people in Nashville. Just not amoung the people you hang with as a recording engineer. But somewhere, back in time, you made a choice, likely, that you would be a better recording engineer than you could ever be a guitar player.

I have seen the pics of your studio. You must be a pretty decent recording engineer to work with gear like that.

60's and 70's pop / rock = the best music ever..

Right next to

Renaissance

40's big band

50's and 60's Jazz

IMHO

Update

Business at the studio is cranking, so time is tight again, but I practice my entries and exits on the M6E
as often as I can, using Market Replay to move rapidly to areas of interest, then slow down and
work the trade.

I'm taking the most obvious, closest target to my current goal of 25 ticks with a risk of 15 ticks, initially. Of course, these will be nudged to form to PA.


I crashed right after my session ended last night on the studio couch and awoke feeling pretty good
at 3am. Let's trade.

Two live trades this morning.


Trade 1

A break down entry that I bailed on when price appeared to stall and go against me

BE


wrong...



Trade 2

Re-Entry when it was clear that the bears where in control

All of this should have been done with one trade with a profit of 35 ticks or so, but that's cool.


+22 with nice positive slippage.


I little cash for the account.


I am also working on swing trading with my cash currency account holding small positions for extended periods of
time.

A work in progress and loving it

Hey Buddy,

Sorry I cut our skype session short a couple of days ago. I was in the middle of a trade and couldn't concentrate on more than one thing at that point......

Lets catch up again soon.
