One little more

Done for the day. I will not trade the closing of the month/trimester this afternoon.

Week's first

I trade the Francfurt and London openings almost exclusively now, here is my early try.

Weekly stats : Week 30 (23-27/6)

24 trades (12 tr x 2 lots) this ending week, no loser again, although at a risk, taken twice. It's better to have some small losers per week, instead of risking to lose all the week's gains.

Risk taken again

Entered long at TL break, price hesitated and risk taken again, finally closed at +3, as I had to leave office, missing the nice move up.

Some pips

Easy 6.

Thursday, June 26, 2008

Third and last for today

Closed early again.

On the wave

Going up with the wave ( the only correct attitude) and grabbing 7 pips fastly.

Old bad habits

I missed the first leg down on this and i entered at what seemed as a second one. Price reversed sharply ..and I refused to close with a loss. It went till -22 and I was just looking the catastrophy coming. Price then reversed again to retest the lows and I had the opportunity (luck) to close at almost breakeven. I refrained myself to re-enter short, to see the pair going up fastly.

The denial to accept a fault can be disastrous in every aspect...

Closed early, because of the high volatility.

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

In seconds

closed in time. Duration of the trade : 13 seconds..


Good entry, bad exit. I closed this because price stalled and i was fearing a reversal. It was just a common accumulation before the new move up, which I missed. I should re-enter at 1.5551 and 10:07:25.

Day's first

I missed the correct entry earlier on this, entered long late, exited as soon I had some gains. Risky.

More action

More action after news from Germany, fast 10 pips. Done for the day (?).

Vivid Mondays

A lot of action at pre-london Mondays recently, I could stay in a little bit more on this.

weekly stats : Week 29 (16-20/6)

Lousy week with a few mediocre trades, under a heavy day schedule. My mind wasn't there, the winners equal the losers for the first time... I will have more time for trading from Monday on.

False breakout

Trying to catch the breakout is the more risky of all trades I believe, especially after London closing... I was late to close this and risked 12 pips. Closed finally at -4,8p.

Enough for today, 2 trades, 1 winner, 1 loser, slightly losing day. I am tired, i have to stop. Better see the Euro..

Early close

Back to trading after several days, I had this little scalp, closed early, i thought price was stalling (wrong).

3 trades for today

...and 2 losers to start a week! False breakout on the first trade, not closed at breakeven. Second one was revenge trading and wrong, the CCI was ascending. I played the third in the direction of the new breakout, and covered most of the damage. Total :-2 pips.

Weekly Stats : Week 28 (9-13/6)

Few trading days this week, few trades, no loser again.

Friday, June 13, 2008

Traded one (and half) day only this ending week, I am under a (very) heavy schedule in my day job until June 20. Next week I hope to find an hour in the afternoon to trade. It's risky to trade when tired or busy.

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

Day's first

...and maybe last, heavy program again for the day.

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Had no time for trading today, very busy.

Monday, June 9, 2008

Let the price move,

"Textbook" setup on this very clear 1 min chart in the afternoon, I had to close at +5,5 to drive home, and lost the big move down.

All in all, 5 trades today, 3 winners, 2 nulls. (equal or less than the spread, is null to me). +3,59% on account.

4 little scalps

4 liittle scalps this morning, +4, +4,5, +2, +2, all closed early.

Saturday, June 7, 2008

Weekly stats : Week 27 (2-6/6)

4 trading days, 36 trades (18 x 2 lots) in total this ending week, 24 winners, 4 losers, 6 nulls. Average winner is low, should let it run a little bit. Reward / Risk ratio is again above 1.0 and that is good. The 10% weekly target was met.

Friday, June 6, 2008

Boring post-NFP

I lost 4 pips in a totally flat post-NFP. A false breakout, trade was closed in time with small loss. Earlier in the day I had won 1 pip.

That was all for today, 2 trades, 1 loser, 1 null. -1,05% on account.

Super conservative this Friday, to keep weekly gains.

Environment day

A beautiful book, very well written and presented, with excellent photos. Although the texts are quite deep, the reading of this book is a real pleasure. I had a splendid Sunday with it, the best book I have read in the last year. Details here.

Don't miss it.

What a day! (and Weinstein's axiom)

I overtraded today, and I had no time to publish all trades separately. But all the trades of the day are on these two charts, eur/jpy and eur/usd. It was a huge volatility day and my trades look ridiculously small on this broader picture. They are just that : bits of the big movement up. With these tiny bits I had a 6,60% increase of my account, whithout catching to trend up. More important, I spent two hours only in front of the monitors, i have to run my other business also. M. Weinstein said that clearly : trade one bit at a time, imitate the
sparrow. This is the way to millions.

10 trades in total today, 8 winners, 0 losers, 2 nulls. +6,6%

One more

Few minutes later, closed again too early. The trend was fast and strong, I was feared to lose the tiny gains.

Early entry gives early exit too

I entered too early, before the resistance was cleared out, risked some pips, so I closed as soon as I had this small 5,5 gain. The real trend was just starting.

Wednesday, June 4, 2008


Third trade today, I entered short while market was consolidating. Closed with a smal loss because price stalled (and could reverse).

That's all for today, 3 trades in total, 2 winners, 1 loser, 2,75% account increase.

Easy one

9 easy pips, closed to keep gains.

Late entry in a strong trend

I was busy with my other activities, that's why I entered this with a big delay. Risky, I could take the rebound on the face.

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

Busy day, no trades today.

Monday, June 2, 2008

Day's end

Third and last trade for the day, I had to close this at break even, it was too late for me.

3 trades in total for today, 2 winners, 1 null, 2,65% account increase.

Too early

I closed this early, anticipating a round number reaction (163.00) who wasn't there finally.

Week's first bit

Entered at low break, exited fastly because I don't trust Monday's open movements. But this one was genuine.
