Just Killing It!

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.

Re: Just Killing It!

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.

Yes. They make great bait.

Re: Just Killing It!

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