This week was very profitable for me, which more than made up for the prior week’s losses. Just the same as you should not get discouraged when losing (see the post about losses), you should not get overly exited when winning. Just keep repeating what works for you in the long run.


Enjoy your weekend everyone!

For some reason my yesterday’s update did not appear in the blog. This trade on news results were as follows:

EURUSD: +20 pips, the remaining orders closed at break even.
GBPUSD: +0 pips on the way down (placed all stops at break even once the second drop started) and +90 pips on the way up. Total: +90 pips
USDCAD: the price dipped down first and then moved upward triggering stop loss orders for a loss of -60 pips. Simultaneously were triggered buy orders for 3 units. The first unit was closed at +20 pips profit, the second unit was closed at +40 pips profit and the stop loss for the third unit was filled at +30 pips profit. Thus the total profit was + 90 pips. After deducting the lost 60 pips, the total for this trade is +30 pips.
Day total: 20+90+30 = +140 pips
