    Brutally honest analysis of yesterday

    If you have read my previous post you’re aware of what happened to US dollar. And without long speeches, I had 3 trades in one and 3 trades in another direction for the reasons brought out in my previous post. And as a result, I managed to get shut off by my stop losses in ALL of them. Thus my first tiny testing capital is so-said kaputt. No worries though, we'll continue ; ) So firstly, lets analyse what I did wrong, first the general things. Like I have mentioned before, I p... Continue reading

    USD at its lowest levels of 2 years, UPDATED 2006-11-30 13:07:39

    Of course, when I'm out to lunch (okay okay, I was having a beer) USD reached its 2 year lowest levels. GBP/USD currently trades at 1.9681 ( yesterday's price ca 1.9460)EUR/USD currently trades at 1.3258 (yesterday's price ca 1.3150)Anyways, we'll see what happens.UPDATEAt this state I have no idea what to do. This sort of market situation doesn't happen too often, for me, beginning trader it's something very new. So under current circumstances I have highered my possible stop loss limit to $1...

    Testing time, Day 3, UPDATED 2006-11-30 11:38:43

    I checked what had happend during my sleeping time and I noticed the similar chart on both EUR/USD and GBP/USD. See this – See the beginning of the chart, Aroon gives heads up for BUY, %R gives heads up for BUY, RSI doesn’t show anything. On another chart, chart 3 the EMA’s give heads up for BUY. This was followed by a sideways movement for 4 hours. Then Aroon was still in the positive side while RSI and %R would have given a sell signal. However, when you look at the candlesticks...

    Testing time, Day 2 UPDATE

    I wrote a post something like 4 pages, and then when I got to the end of it, I realized that this post really was a mess and instead, I’ll try to tell you about stuff in a bit shorter and simpler manner. Today I tried those 4 templates I brought out in my previous post, I used 15-min charts and 3 pairs – GBP/USD, EUR/USD and EUR/GBP. To shout out loud, I think EUR/GBP in most cases might be pretty useless pair to follow. 5 hours ago I thought that it would go up but...well, the th... Continue reading

    Testing time, Day 2

    Didn’t have time to update yesterday’s post so I’ll continue with this new one. I haven’t placed any trades yet but I have worked out 4 different chart templates with indicators on them to see if any of them work or could work after some changes. Template 1 This chart template uses 50-period and 14-period EMA’s for trends. Due to my observations yesterday I will use Aroon to set my entry points. I am not sure about stop loss and exit yet, but I hope to get them in place soon as... Continue reading

    Testing time, Day 1

    Okay, this is day one in my trading on my demo account. On that account I have currently $56. To follow the forex prices and to analyse the charts I will be using the free MetaTrader 4 software. All the charts available in this section will be generated with MetaTrader as well. During my trading I will try to keep in mine the intermarket analysis as well. Though, I think for starters it will be extremely difficult to keep in mind all the different things I should keep in mind. So don’t sue me if... Continue reading

    My own trading plan

    In my previous post I talked about the general way the trading plan should be created for yourself. If you have read it, then you have seen that in order to create a good trading plan you do need to be pretty much 100% honest with yourself an usually you wouldn’t really like to share it with anyone else. But in my case I will have to humiliate myself a bit and say it all out loud, right here. Don’t laugh! Or if you do, be sure to post your constructive criticism to the comments section. This t...
