...and down

Several pips on this, splitted on many trades. Extra safety has a considerable cost in commissions.. I should learn to trust the trend more...

Going south (again)


Quick move and some pips just before London opening. I stopped at this point, to avoid the usual Monday morning stagnation.

Thursday, November 25, 2010


Today I was expecting a dead market, dead as the poor turkey is.. Despite that, the guys in Europe gave some action and slow, sweet moves.

Easy money

More easy money and ending the session at +85 pips, to keep the gains and enjoy the day.

Back on the tracks

Euro resumed the move down, making my task easy.

The newbie in me

Back to the monitors after several busy days. I opened charts around 10pm, only to see the euro collapse that happened earlier today. I insisted to trade even at this obviously dead hour. The result was some consecutive losses and intense frustration.. A totally unacceptable behavior, given my experience.

Exit the range

Some pain inside the range and then, a nice breakout.

The first trade was late entry / early exit, the rest was quite ok.

One more chance for the fool

On first trade, the two pillars of catastrophy were there : late entry and refusal to exit with a loss. Price went to -18 and I was just looking at the disaster, like a petrified newbie. Then price recovered to breakeven, trade not closed, and went south again, making a double top. I closed with a -6.8 loss, in extremis, just because the market was kind enough to give me a second chance..The pips came immediately after, when I got the correct direction...

Post-NFP (3)

Endind the session at this point, to walk my dog and preserve the gains, 54 pips for the day.

Post-NFP (2)

Post-NFP (1)

Much quieter this NFP than post-FOMC moves.

Wednesday, November 3, 2010


Wild moves after FOMC announcement. Waited for the spread to narrow again and then entered 3 times and then stopped. Extreme volatility can make you lose your mind.


The best trade of this session is the last one, a loser. Why?

Foolish risk taken on the 2.5p trade.

Slow train down

Not much, on a quiet Monday afternoon.
