Trades for 7-18-12

Very upset with myself right now. Got wrapped up in trading a range which always results in what happened today. Thankfully I had enough sense to keep my sizing level so it's not the end of the world (I'm still up overall, just took out 6 days of profit).

Forex: 5 trades, 4 losses and 1 very small profit for a total of -15.79%

Skype trading chat room

I'm currently managing a skype trading room. It has people from all over the world who have various degrees of trading experience. The majority trade either forex or futures, but I believe there are a few people who trade stocks. Currently there are about 49 people in the room (though only around 5-10 of us actually talk), and most activity is during the Euro market session through the majority of the US session.

If you're interested in joining us I can add you to the room. I just need your skype name which you can leave in the comments of this post. It is text chat only (no mics or cams), so don't worry about having a mic/cam. Beware: I have to add you to my contacts list before I can add you to the room. After you are in the room you can remove me from your contacts if you wish.
