    Hi ilearn2t, really sorry to know you require frequent hospital treatment. What's you ailment???

    ==============================

    I am trying to access your link, but (as of now, 3 mins passed) it's still trying to log me in. I'll give it a couple more minutes before exiting.

    Well, you didn't miss much on trading the EUR/USD yesterday as it was ranging looking for direction. It took almost a whole minute for market to react to better than expected results from the US employment data released and even then, it all went back to normal a couple minutes later. We (the trading group over at PipHut) made some money trading that pair. Join us around the European session if you have some spare time.

    All the best!

    Liz, I still cannot access your site via that link. Maybe it's so sensitive that it require special top secret codes??

    Hello RahmanSL

    Try www.mt4i.com/users/ilearn2t

    Yesterdays USDCHF report seems to suggest what I talked about in this thread http://forum.fxopen.com/showthread.p...l=1#post564993 the US Trade Balance report in a few minutes time might help this to happen sooner but we all know what happens when Fed Chairman Bernanke Speaks in just over 4 hours time. If it goes the way it usually does it buy EURUSD low every few minutes take profit high every few minutes.

    Ilearn2t

    New update

    Its like watching the closing part of "Force 10 from Navarone" great film to watch but checking yesterdays data the USDCHF dam didn't burst until the next 1H bar kicked in.

    Ps: hospital treatment is for ongoing brain and head injuries suffered 6 years ago. (I'll wait on the joke coming)

    At the end of this week's trading my Equity now stands at +346 (17.3%) up on my initial deposit.

    Successful closed trades 158

    EURUSD = 66
    GBPUSD = 46 Total pips gained 1,019.
    USDCHF = 28
    USDCAD = 18

    Movement from start of trading to current close:

    EURUSD Open 1.3312 Close 1.3168 -144
    GBPUSD Open 1.5491 Close 1.5734 +243
    USDCHF Open 0.9182 Close 0.9195 +13
    USDCAD Open 1.0334 Close 1.0025 -309
    The combined downward swing since start of journal shows an overall drop.

    Last nexts trading was mostly automatic with just one or two manual trades involved.

    Thanks and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    Hello Q-Funds

    This is only a "Demo" account setup to collect data, to help improve my next "Real" account journal.

    Using the EUR/USD & GBP/USD v USD/CHF & USD/CAD, shows me this method is only good over short time periods.

    For longer time periods GBP/USD v USD/CAD looks best, so for my next account only these two pair will be used.

    My EA will control all trades involving the two sets of pairs placing trailingstop after 30 pips into profit is reached and will include a 30 pip trailingstop, as a 15 by 15 trailingstop was set to low on "Demo" account.

    This coming journal will have new testing and data collecting on EUR/USD involving "Pin Bar" trading see here

    Unlike the first method the "pin bar" will involve "Stoplosses being placed at order setup.
    All trades will involve "manual" trading only.

    No StopLoss is set on (GBP/USD v USD/CAD) because it involves "correlation"

    I'll continue to test out more systems/formulas and add to journal only once a lot of new data is collected, same rule will apply to (GBP/USD v USD/CAD) if new data shows by setting new values to the EA will improve outcome, it will be changed.

    I'll continue to manual trade the USD/CHF on the "Real" journal for added data.
    All trades on the USD/CHF will also involve a Stoploss at execution of order.

    Safe trading

    Hello Everyone

    New "Real" journal begins on Sunday 25/Mar/2012

    All trades will be 0.3 lot size.



    This journal will be set in the same format as my "Demo" journal, which now stands around 49% up from the starting deposit 2,000



    Win = 214 loss = 0

    Good luck

    Hello george_soros_II

    4 different accounts on 4 different platforms.

    1 "demo" 1 "real" 2 "contest" so 4 different windows open at anyone time.

    Hello CCC000

    "Real" only started, but I let my "little helper" (name I call my EA) trade for me, the only one of the 4 accounts I have to trade is the "ForexCup" But I.ve started well in this "contest" using manual.

    Good luck

    Hello george_soros_II

    Sorry I misread your earlier post. I view my platform like this.


    [IMG=700x400]http://www.fx4u.talktalk.net/fxo/platform%20_real.gif[/IMG]

    At first glance you'll see my "Balance" 10,446.40 "Equity" 10,187.99 (thats only $1.87 up)

    You'll notice my open orders equal -258.41 (-$2.58)

    If the USD/CHF & USD/CAD go upward while the EUR/USD & GBP/USD go downward and still in "BuyStop" mode, my "Equity" will increase. Also the 2 "BuyStops" will modify downward by 5 points (pips) each time the market price go 20 pips below BuyStop/s price.

    Because my "Real" account is only running a short time (1 day) I don't need to place manual orders at this stage as my "EA" does it all for me.

    Closing orders in profit and replacing them with "BuyStops" over time I'll change the inputs so "BuyLimits" will be added if needed.

    Good luck
