Just Killing It!

Recommended Posts

I was literally down to my last $128 in my trading account. Wifey said no more money was going in. Talk about a reason to focus!

 

Well, then something happened. I have rattled off a string of wins and my account is now up 64% (before commisions) in 33 days. My confidence is back!

 

I know this amount of money is small potatoes. However, if I can continue to make anywhere close to these gains on a consistent basis, then . . . . . Easy Street, Baby!

ps I have laboured to make that joke easily translate - naturally I'd say a minnow - do people in the US even know what a minnow is?

In the US we use racial slurs instead of bait fish as the subject of predation.

Actually, I've continued to learn, grow and become profitable as a Trader. The experience of being down to almost nothing and coming back was truly an ordeal - one which I do not intend on re-living.

 

Please excuse the exhiliration in my original post. I'm sure you would understand if you've had a similar experience.

I guess this much confidence is not good. If it is not going to work, you are going to stop forex trading.

 

It all depends what that confidence is based on.

 

A random series of wins over 30 days returning at least 10 times what the worlds best traders might achieve over 300 days on a good year wouldnt inspire me with much confidence, but hey thats just me.

 

My random robots have been hitting those kinds of winning (and losing) streaks since 2002 (the cool thing of course is I understand why it happens :rofl:)

 

This place really has died hasnt it ?

 

Serves them right for banning oily

    • BITCOIN STRENGTHENS CORRELATION WITH STOCK MARKET Over recent days, Bitcoin (BTC) has been forging a strong correlation to the equities market once again and it has been observed that this occurs usually when global uncertainty is rife. Currently, investors are wracked with fears over the dwindling prospects of second domestic stimulus measures in the US, coupled with the weaning possibility of a sharp economic recovery. Also, the upcoming US presidential elections are adding to the growing uncertainty surrounding the markets. These fears will likely remain unsolved in the near-term, making further choppiness in the equities market very possible. That said, Bitcoin will likely get caught up in the mix, giving its correlation to the stock market. Meanwhile, an On-Chain analyst has said that he expects the Bitcoin-Equities correlation to fade in the coming months. He explained that subsequent sharp declines in equities will eventually stop pulling Bitcoin lower as the crypto reaches its lowest technically possible levels. BTCUSD – 4-Hour Chart Key BTC Levels to Watch At press time, Bitcoin trades at $10,511, about 0.8% increase in the day. However, it remains trapped in its weekly consolidation range. Last week, bulls attempted to pull the benchmark cryptocurrency out of its downward spiral and ended up taking the price to highs of $11,200. The rejection from that level was decisive and sharp, causing Bitcoin to fall to the level it currently trades at. Meanwhile, the equities market was able to post a modest recovery today, which, as an extension, has given Bitcoin a reprieve for the near-term. Still, the absence of any significant positive development around the US stimulus program or the pandemic-induced economic crisis may continue to burden the cryptocurrency market from rising in the near-term.

    • ETHEREUM (ETH) PRICE ANALYSIS: BATTLES THE RESISTANCE AT $390, EYES THE HIGH AT $420 Key Highlights Ethereum has a fresh target price of $420 The coin is still battling the resistance at $390 Ethereum (ETH) Current Statistics The current price: $381.78 Market Capitalization: $43,016,171,550 Trading Volume: $12,067,100,125 Major supply zones: $280, $320, $360 Major demand zones: $160, $140, $100 Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis September 20, 2020 From the rejection at the $390 resistance, Ether is falling to the previous low at $378. Each time the market falls it will retrace to the low of $378 and $381. ETH will rise again to retest the $390 resistance. The coin is rising and it has reached $381 at the writing. The crypto has resumed an upward move as it found support above $380. On the downside, if price has retraced and broken below $350, the selling pressure would have persisted. ETH/USD – Daily Chart ETH Technical Indicators Reading The price has earlier broken above the resistance line of the ascending channel. This assures that the rise of the coin will continue. Another aspect is that price has remained above the EMAs. This also indicates that the coin is rising. ETH/USD – 4 Hour Chart Conclusion From the price action on the 4-hour chart, Ethereum is likely to rise if the current resistance is breached. On September 17, the coin was in an upward move. It was resisted at $390 but the last retraced candle tested the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level. This indicates that the market will rise and reach a high of 1.618 Fibonacci extension level or $420 high. Source: https://learn2.trade

    • cui bono ? https://off-guardian.org/2020/09/17/12-steps-to-create-your-own-pandemic/   I'm still trying to figure out which is ultimately worse - the exploiters who run games like this OR the masses of dummies who fall for it... just sayin'
