Don't let the numbers fool you. I actually traded very badly today by getting sucked into a gambling mentality. Only my first trade today was a "normal/good" trade.

Calling it a week, and taking tomorrow off to get some things done around the house.

As you can see from my charts I did a lot of scalping this week. Hopefully I'll be able to ride some bigger waves next week now that the Greek elections are over and the FOMC policy has been released.

Experimenting with Fibonacci retracement lines

I decided to take the day off from real trading since it's been pretty tricky to make any decent trades lately. However, I took the time to use my demo account to do some experimenting with Fibonacci retracement lines. So far the results aren't good (3of3 trades were losses), but I still have more to learn. I'm using this great article my Dad found that explains how to use them. The article can be found at: http://www.learningmarkets.com/using-fibonacci-analysis-to-trade-forex-crosses/
