It's my second day trading a $2000 Forex account. First day I gambled and I ended up $51 on plus. Today I decided to gamble more responsibly and I set stop losses around 1:2 for each trade. The day didn't start too well, out of seven trades, five closed quickly on negative. On one I feel I had bad luck, since it was just the end of the wick of a candle stick that triggered the sell response. On the other ones, I can only blame myself... Anyway, I was not too disappointed about five losses in a row, so I kept going. I decided I need to learn quickly a proven method to earn money and the introductory courses from Forex helped. I rediscovered the MACD indicators and I was able to recover from all my losses. The day has not ended yet, but so far I am pleased with how is going on. The part I enjoy the most is that I can trade to a level that I feel comfortable with - so what I define today as a good day is having any profit (ideally above $5), and a bad day, losing more than $5. Until recently, I was down to about -$6, while now I am above $8. I will leave a few trades overnight and I can't wait to check tomorrow morning to see how much money I made (or lost) overnight. Life is good!
