    who scorpion was anything but enjoyable for me
    back to regular, can confirm that approx 20 hours it took, however today it's good as new.
    Trust me, today I will more often look under my table before sit down.

    After about a year and a half ago my wife and son had sitting at the kitchen eating breakfast when sensed something strange down. . .that was a snake.
    I awakened for the scre I believed the house is on fire!
    Me hunting the snake round the kitchen ( and mind you, being around the country side this is a large enough kitchen of approximately 25 m2) half asleep and half and dreaming pushed by adrenaline. . .that was funny thinking back.

    With scorpions is obviously straightforward: they all can bite you.
    With snakes, it's bit more like russian roulette: some is benign and scared over you, some a fricking cobra that may send you to hospital straight away, or worse.
    We are leading so much in the war, household vs critters....our accidents 1 1 scorpion in the scorpions (wife some time back) and 1 to a spitting cobra (also spouse, who was a hospital trip and some significant vision problems for several days)

    trading is similar to a war also, but feel a lot more humanist somehow.
    no killing involved. ( interesting fact: my wife is a believing Buddhist, but maybe cos her adventures she doesnt have another thought killing critters attacking us).
    But trading nevertheless is a war!
    You against someone. Someone against you.
    And just no idea that which is on the other side of this transaction up against you!
    Your wits vs. the unidentified enemy.
    That is a true challenge to handle.
    But entertaining also.

    happy weekend!

    mid week update.

    Monday was slow and ended with no trade, then yesterday and now action picked up.
    Yesterday was really fine with 10/10 singles, now was nevertheless not so much though only 2 part transactions in the slightest, and very restricted working drawdown still.
    But especially now I had once more some horrible online relationship issues, that cost me, dearly. Inside my estimate approx 150$ not happy for this.
    I am in progress of reloing from the farm into the city, a more perceptible environment to farm profit. Will end up for the time being seeing family less often ( but nevertheless a lot more often than functioning at sea!) , when it appear to be a necessary move 16, but it came to the point.
    The farm is available, but this is something I cant rush to happen. Wish I could. There is interest, but not interest with cash in hand.

    About the positive side the 2 days was enough to gain 1.04%, and shave off again a little in the drawdown.
    So far the month is progressing along well, and only passed the 3% lineup.
    I am seeking to guard this, however right now trading appear to be very focused and with maximum a secondary entrance only it stays very much on the secure side the previous five weeks or so, I am not seeking to limit myself, although due the continuing drawdown wont also push too difficult.
    Risk stays the same as was, and see what comes.
    Overall I am happy with things that season, and basically right where I want to be.

    Today the major activity was between GBP.
    First GU afterward on the later news GC.
    Will include both charts as an example for need to be elastic.

    1. GU
    my timing was early twice, but great enough with little correction.
    While in hindsight all may be fine holding to each and all entries, that is hindsight, and dangerous.
    Especially the first 2 transactions are a fantastic example how not trying to hold to your greater profit would save a scalper in the drawdown.
    Then the next entrance set timed better, again using a spot on exit, and now there where I got little exhausted too, with spouse needing to visit shopping (tesco).
    Usually as my unwritten rule, if 2-3 occasions I have the timing off, then I prefer to hold a little longer as then tend to be a much better rebound, after all also getting matters at a discount.
    Well, I must work on the holding this case, but in all it was a fantastic hour work for my day session

    2. GC
    also an early entrance for the initial rally round the 00 area, then seeing weakness was holding out for greater entries. Not a close but not a bad result.
    For incentive, GC gave later some fantastic brief also, better. . .11 pips from a single entrance (scalping) isn't a bad one, at least for me

    EC shorts included a little more profit, but not a major portion for the day.

    happy trading!

    Your journal attracted my attention, %2 -  a month seems wiser than anything.

    Consistency is the holy grail, P-100 annual return is a lot more better than every other interest rates in the world.

    I'll be following your trading journal, I wish you good luck on the way of reaching your goal!

    2 charts of the exact same transaction(s)....
    Similar pattern I had been telling each time, ancient, then correcting on near, then better and close, and ultimately the fantastic entries but close early on being tired.
    Flexibility and not anticipating rigid outcomes. RSI wasexactly the just for CSM, or any other things.
    Position sizing, which leave space for some errors, and keep the risk low enough not to dread, or get margin call on a relative small mistake, like being originally about 100 pips incorrect where the bottom may be ( it was the close the BRN, however one BRN reduced).
    Those who wonder there's no martingale lots, apart from a scout I use same size entries, but what I use is a classic X pip grid. That is not flexible.
    This one actually was way out my trading hours, however because I was about, why not?
    Some excitement, moderately, but in the end this late action made a OK day a fantastic day!
    0.27% was my regular period, averaging 1.04% where the day ended. Surely and hour of my life well spent.



    happy trading!

    The week ends here.

    though technicallly there is some time left, I think I had enough for this week.
    And few times hoping to grab the last bit is what price the dearest.
    So, the week ends here!
    Also it was an intriguing one, started out using a no trade Monday, and still ended up having an outstanding 2.49 per week.
    I understand, still in unfavorable for this year (on this TE account!) And well bellow the HWM also, but that doesnt change that this was a fantastic week.
    As an additional bonus, two of the 4 days traded had 100% success rate, M. Douglas would say I traded in the zone
    today particularly, as I had been patient enough to average almost 7 pips per entrance! Yes, this is big, for a scalper at least! (involving GC shorts and EU longs)

    next week will begin with a long weekend, I'm not sure yet exactly how long, but likely to stretch to Thursday.
    It might or might not demand some trading that many likely will be restricted to my private account.
    But it is going to relate to reloing for the opportunity to town to enjoy better trading conditions since I had currently too many internet related problems here out about the sticks.

    At a move to diversify my equity involving brokers, added some more to Axi (part of the prior Fixi master funds).

    happy weekend!

    Scorpion agility on that commerce that is eurusd, really nice one!
    I had a couple of attempts to manually scalp when the market boils, ..., mt4 freeze, price entrance issues, ... not easy! Good job!

    Thanks. Authentic, not always easy, particularly if my internet is acting up ( and that's the greatest ingredient for scalping), but now got it right, mostly.

    now I got back home, after being away since Saturday.
    The mission was to find a town place where I could work with better conditions than to the farm we could have currently.
    Victory in the end.
    The driving between both places wont be enjoyable, but well, myprevious life on a cruise ship wasnt just enjoyable neither.
    Time will tell how things work out, probably will include some pictures after going in about the 1st May.

    The trading, I just got home about the time of ECB, and overlooked ( or likely not overlooked) trading on it, but did a good 2 hours trading session on EurUsd after.
    10 entrances, all EurUsd longs, as so often finishing just at the base of the cascading when I could start to get things simpler. But my trading time was coming to end and there's absolutely no need to force things, actually, when retrieval is progressing in general.
    A net 38 pips, which isnt bad, as there was 2 entrances that closed in losses. 0.62% gain.
    Here is the chart for those interested to look at it visually:

    happy trading!

    my simplified goal: be in a position to cover the bills and reside at a straightforward yet comfortable life.
    I dont find any reason why you couldnt be profitable, and also make a living.
    (provided that you have sufficient equity to keep you on course; both generating enough profit to satisfy the greedy requirements and generating enough fear to keep you to risking blowing all away!)
