Yesterday afternoon I lost access to TL, so I wasn't able to post my results for the day (-39.7 pips). I also couldn't get in until late this morning.

 

I'm attaching yesterday's results along with the three entries I've made this morning.

Got long EURCHF a little while ago. It's after 13:00 CT on Friday afternoon, so this will be the last trade I take this week. If this trade hasn't hit my stop or target by 15:00 CT, I'll close it.

I started taking trades in this demo account on Sunday evening. I started posting my trades here on Wednesday morning. I've separated the attached "closed trades" lists into two periods: one from Sunday evening to Tuesday evening, and the other from Wednesday morning to Friday afternoon. As you can see, most of the profits came from the first half of the week, although the second half was still profitable, if only marginally so.

 

I've also attached the "account summary" for the whole week.

 

Using a 1K lot for every trade, I ended up with a +$14.96 profit this week. Considering that the pip value of the 1K lots range from +/-$0.07 to +/-$0.12 for each trade, in relative terms this was a great week, at least for me and what I've been used to.

 

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

 

Best,

Took this Long on the bullish candle after chasing the entry somewhat @ 1.3253, ..RR still attractive.

Will be looking for areas to raise the stop to a more favourable level.

God Bless..

Good morning folks, after an eventual stop on the previous long, this is the new setup for now on the long GBPUSD....ideally the price action sets up in the next couple of days to give us a better enter and risk/reward. 

Actually would look for an eventual move to the 161.8% Fib extension.

God Bless,

    • "without bearing any loss?"  That's a really tough question n meat.  Are you serious?! "without bearing any loss" - hm?  Can you think of any trade or investment that is completely risk free?  Can you think of any trade or investment that is completely loss free? I've seen even routine, highly reliable ( at the time ) arb's lose money try this - go to japan , borrow 10 billion yen, leave 'japan', go to _________, never make the first payment on principle or interest ... whoops- that has risks too.  try this - start your own bank... whoops that has risks too.  try this - start your own digital cash.  If you play it right, all you risk is your time on the computer and your connectivity costs   ... if you really need to avoid loss, stay away from trading - period! ... bcse you are going to have 'ANY' loss in trading. Better to embrace loss.  Both intra personally and in terms of your capital, make each loss the best, minimum/optimum, loss it can be ...     PS Stick around some helpful soul will tell n meat to get on sim and practice until ... I'll take bets right now it won't work for n meat   PS when is the next Lab meeting?  I have an agenda item to add... TL needs to order new GM mice from a different vendor

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 16th August 2018.



      FX News Today

      Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are up 1.8 bp at 2.880%, 10-year JGBs up 0.7 bp at 0.094% as of 05:35GMT, as stocks move up from early lows on trade talk hopes. Asian sold off early in the session amid concerns over global growth and particularly China, after a Sino-related tech slump saw Wall Street heading south yesterday. Reports that China and the US are preparing a low level round helped to put a floor under markets, however, and mainland China bourses managed to move higher, while other indices are up from early lows. Topix and Nikkei are down -0.78% and -0.21% respectively. The Hang Seng is still down -0.395, but CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp are now up 0.61% and -0.20% respectively. The Kospi slumped -0.87% after returning from holiday and the ASX 200 is down -0.035. Meanwhile, US futures are moving higher with Chinese markets. Oil prices are slightly up from lows and the September US oil future is trading at USD 65.10 per barrel.

      FX Update: The Dollar and the Yen have both weakened, giving back recent gains amid an improvement in risk appetite. The US and China have agreed on a new round of trade talks, while Turkey has managed to halt the rout of the Lira and secure major investments from Qatar and China’s Alibaba. The USDIndex (DXY) is showing a 0.3% decline, at 96.44, heading into the London interbank open, while EURUSD is concurrently showing a 0.3% gain, earlier printing a two-session high of 1.1397, putting in some space from yesterday’s 13-month low at 1.1316. USDJPY has settled in the upper 110.00s after printing a low in Tokyo at 110.46. AUDJPY, viewed as a forex market proxy on risk appetite in global markets, is showing the biggest move with just over a 0.5% gain. Over the near-term, the Dollar and the Yen will likely remain apt to weaken before settling as developments on the latest phase of Sino-US negotiations are awaited.
