Trades for 1-26-11

Tried switching to trading 5 minute charts this week, and so far it’s not really working out. I will likely continue doing the same next week though because I figure the 1st few days of trying this system could have been just getting used to a different time frame.

I may or may not trade tomorrow, but you should still expect a post with my weekly totals.

Trades for 1-19-11

I am extremely disappointed in my trading today. Went back into my same old bad habits, and it wasn’t good. Thankfully I’m not trading that much money so it wasn’t a huge problem money wise.

Status update, and this week's results

My total for the week is: +2.25%

So I had no trades today, but I had a very good week. I’m happy with how I traded, and how I handled myself. Things are really shaping up good for me in trading, which is great considering I didn’t get that management job I applied for back in December.

Personally I’ve been doing well and have been thinking about growing my own vegetables and/or maybe mushrooms. It will help keep me occupied due to the fact that I’ve been a hermit for a while now. I would go ice-fishing, but it’s boring when you’re all by yourself.

Have a good weekend, and I’ll likely see you on Tuesday.

Trades for 1-12-11

Today’s trading went very well! Not only did I have a good profit, but the main thing is I played the trade exactly how I wanted too.

I doubt I’ll be doing any trading tomorrow, but regardless I should be making a post with my weekly totals.

Trades for 1-11-11

Sorry that I left you guys hanging for a while, I just wound up getting wrapped up in other things and work. I’ve caught up all my posts today so you’ll be able to see how I did last week.

Had a couple of trades today, and would have done much better had I not missed a long in USD/JPY earlier in the day (it took off right when I pulled up the chart). I also had a very nice sleep (about 17 hours), but it was needed due to my weekend graveyard shift.

I feel that my trading is much better these days, and hope that I can keep up this consistency for a long time.

Not much activity during my time trading today. I am pleased with how I traded, and hope it continues now that I’m back from my break.
