I usually avoid trading during the Christmas period, but today I opened charts again. What I was afraid of, was there : a thin market, violently moved by the big guys, to make extra gains before their vacations. I had a 2,5 pips trade and the market, IMMEDIATELY after this, moved 40 pips in the opposite direction, precisely at the London opening (10:00)!.. I could stay with the long open and no stop and get a -40 on the face in 3 seconds.. I took fastly 11 pips on the right direction but this is gambling, no trading. Got a little more and closed trades for a week at least. Leaving by now.
"When i trade at home, I often watch the sparrows in my garden. When I feed them bread, they take just a little piece at a time and fly away.They keep on flying back and forth, taking small bits of bread. You will never be able to shoot a sparrow, it is just too fast. That is the way I day trade". M. Weinstein.

There is nothing to sell on this blog. No signals, no "systems" for sale. Just my trading plan and the recording of my trades on eur/usd and the fx euro future recently. And the books, the music, the films I like.

I risked on the first trade only, then I saw the shallow market and I went for the (very) little.
