Maybe it's a fantastic place to start. In addition, I have embraced a method in which I do not use physical SL but a mental one like yours I feel this...
    Um, let explain this little 'misunderstanding' to you: there was never in any form -10 pips involved in my thread.
    The just -10 was standing for equity SL, which was kept, as in -10% equity SL.

From the EURCAD trades, he could just get one batch out of the terrible trades but the rest of the trades didnt retrace at all or his installments didnt trigger because there was no retracement at all. Or RSI/MA didnt cross. Like I said, it's a trending week. Most of the scalpers will take a hit since scalpers are aiming for...
    Close sufficient outline. Actually more trades were off and on as I recall, but before the news on CAD also had to lighten things a few, and indeed the retracements/swings were shallow to take me out.
    Compare EC with GC, I think the chart there was kinder. However one can be smart as.

    I went over the trade (a few times) and always came to the decisions:
    1. It was a system commerce
    2. The system's rules were followed.

    So, an unfortunate distribution of trading loss, but I do not see it is a rogue or revenge commerce, or such. As a trade it was valid as any on this trip.

    By -10pips transactions I supposed that the winners, I scrolled through your list of past transactions and you generally close trades in -10pips or less I've never seen it go beyond -10pips, yes I do know that you place a 10% equity SL maybe it was my writing that you just misunderstood or maybe I'm totally off.

    Like I said I'm not in a position to blab on about it all. But I'll be rooting for you recovery !

    It had been system trade as far as any might be, not much to do with impatience. At times, usually later portion of the day, specific system attributes can be safely dropped, or omitted, but this trade was not one of those. This was a 'normal', complete criterion met one. Albeit with no ending.

    That possibly an illusion, coming from the fact that 95% of the time I have winning times, and 90 percent of the times things are smooth sail? ...

    You are right; it had been. But this one was different. I got baited to believing it was a regular movement; I had been expecting it to be odd till it started to behave especially regular. That's what threw me off. I started to believe I was a day early.

    of the one, staying forward, I will be sure
    as multiple occasions said, it is a journey, has ups and downs, and am/was/will be open that it is neither the only path for me, or the right/only time to really do.

    Using a Beckett quote:
    barely tried. Ever failed. No issue. Try again. Fail again. Fail better

    happy weekend!

    Gradually getting into trading my primary account.
    On slowly I mean in the moment I am using 1/3rd of the preceding risk.
    It seems to be a fantastic idea to perform.
    Then it doesnt, when the evening is going smooth as well as this tuned down risk earns 0.2 percent. Suddenly reduced risk is an opportunity wasted to get a chunk of the drawdown back.
    but trading isnt a race.
    Yet trading is a race.
    Inevitable, a few drawdown will be constantly current, luring to hit. The task is to recover to new equity high before that occurs.
    The certain way to recover is to trade as normal, with the regular risk involved.
    If anybody attempted horseback riding, probably familiar with the word that if one drops the finest is the soonest to get back to the horse. The damage that is least emotional.
    I had the luck to be an acceptable rider back approx 2 years, and had my fair share of falling and getting back. Please subscribe to the side the way to do so.
    Trading isnt too different, in my mind.
    But it is not only pain or injury. . .the feelings are somewhat distinct, and also money is connected, which make it a whole different level.
    In my case not mine.
    I am still in the progress to form thru the damage the back-to-back drawdown caused. About halfway there to get all, right now it seems that by Wednesday evening I may get the opportunity to speak to all the respective parties and outline for myself where each and everyone stands.
    It's important on the going forward.

    Because I am -afterall- trading for a living, in the meantime must focus on my other, private account, sort of a damage control task. As february was mostly a vaion month, expenditures kept adding up, not expecting this sort of reduction, purely based on history ( of course as in trading it had been constantly thought about when drawn up worst case scenarios to myself, but this is different component).
    So, private account is doing ok, and get thru the drawdown nicely due its versatility that it isnt bound by the exact same rules such as the primary or alloion accounts.
    Certain, a few riskier moves, but exceptional times call for a few extraordinary measures.
    To make sure, CAD is intense weak, for a few days now, and EurCad may be heading another 100 pips greater. . .who may tell. . .but if anything, it had been climbing approx 1200 pips without too much of a pullback, and I will surely anticipate if not a turn, but a few pause within it.
    If one bother to look GJ chart lately, there's a lot of similarity on what we expect to see, only that GJ produced that 200 pips turn already, and EC will probably do soon.
    But dont take my thoughts for it, (so I place a chart for this), do your assignments, see your levels, and pick. Btw, such as GJ long had been swap friendly, EC short too on the right side of that equation, always a bonus.

    Hmm, lots of reading for those who care to see.
    Perhaps I should place those promised final photographs from the shore(es) of the island accepted my friends, should help to cheer up the mood a few?

    happy trading!

    Hi PF, welcome back

    I have found from backtesting that cross pairs are not as good as the major pairs in regards to mean reversion trading. Additionally you get disperse and liquidity for you and your clientele.
