update – and invite to join my newsletter

I haven’t updated here for a few days, so here it is:

Last Thursday I went on vacation. I had a taxi scheduled to pick me up on 2 pm  I knew it was not a good idea to trade just before leaving, but when all my other chores were done and I was waiting I decided to trade anyway. Of course the position got complicated, the market going up and down and I had to wait and meanwhile added contracts so I had 4 overall, and when it was the time for the taxi to come it was just the time the market finally went strongly in my direction, but not fast enough. Finally I quit with a loss of $100, knowing that waiting for 5 or 10 more minutes would have probably given me a nice profit. That’s the punishment for trading in the wrong time.

I came back from vacation on Monday, when the markets were closed. Yesterday I traded on the demo, and made $50 on one contract. Today I decided to trade live. The market was not moving, going up and down about 3 pips, and I worked on other things while waiting for the market to move more. Finally I decided to enter on the lower pips, and in about 5 minutes the market went up those 3 pips and I made $37.5 on 3 pips.

I have heard for a long time that a good blog should have a newsletter. Finally I decided to open one. You can join it here. In it I intend to give tips about trading, making online, and more…
