I was going to reply to the original thread but it has been closed. Anyone still trading? I went down to $100 from my initial $500. I stopped copying other traders and decided it was "do or die" time and started trading myself. It has taken a long time and lots of high risk "all in" trades, but it paid off. As of Friday 6th, I was up to a healthy $645 This week has been insane trading (and profit) with EURUSD My outlook...... Everything I read says the Euro is heading for parity (or thereabouts) with the $ The last week I have not been quite so reckless. I have opened 2 x trades, 25-40 pips apart. Each trade has been $200 with a large stop loss of x 300 as now I have the funds to cover this. (I have been burned a few times when it has gone in the opposite direction). If the winds sway in my direction I open a 3rd $200 trade. This is going to be my strategy from now on. Will it work or am I talking bollocks? Who knows, time will tell. All I can tell anyone that is interested is the consensus is the Euro is heading for 1.000 in relation to the $ and it has served me well doing this the last week. What I also now realise is the more funds you have the less you need to invest and keep it on the table to make a profit. "murph" quoted in the last thread he read of someone who trades once a day with large amounts but only needs a small window to make his money. This now makes sense to me. If I could make a trade of $1000 every day and set it for only 10 pips, that's $100 profit daily. I don't have the funds for this yet but that is my goal.
