      Default Soldier's trading journal

      Well, Hello People

      I finally decided to start a trading journal. I have been involved in forex for a long long time but when it comes to trading, I just trade the very first days of a month or a week then lose the capital and restart.

      Actually the first time I won consistently was 2 months ago when I stayed with one strategy regardless on anything else and made a few dollars from a 20$ bonus. It was a good moment that suddenly based because I didn't use a stop loss (I'm a big advocate on the stop loss but in that case I didn't use it because I was just fooling with the bonus). To cut this story short, Life is passing by and I don't want to keep on losing forever and I decided to just stick to my knowledge of the market and what I learnt and trade the daily charts with basic technical analysis.


      Alright,

      Starting bonus: However much I receive this month (Feb. 2017) from the forum/ Around 30$ maybe
      Trading style: Long term
      Frames used: 4 hour / 1 day
      Strategy: Basic Technical Analysis (Trends, Significant Levels, Candlesticks)
      Risk: 5-6$ in each trade (if stop loss is 100 pips then 5$ / 100=0.05$ lot size)

      I may or may not use the (Trader's Dynamic index) Indicator for assistance sometimes.

      Expectations: I really don't know but I'm not an optimistic person nor I'm a pessimistic one but a realist and with 30$ and this risk, I'm not expecting much. BUT I JUST KEEP ON KEEPING ON.

      Wish me luck ♥ ♥

      Hahaha, Ask as many question as you like
      As for pairs I trade, I used to trade EUR/USD and GBP/USD in the past with scalping strategies and indicators and occasionally I would visit the lovely insane GBP/JPY for the rapid movements but currently with this new plan, I will open like 10 charts of pairs that have good movements, analyze and enter on the most perfect of setups. I will post some charts during the day today

      Here we go,


      The EUR/USD has been declining. Currently I see that we are at a level of support that the price broke under forming a few bearish candle then came up to it again and went up.
      Personally I'm considering a sell in case of breaking this level downward again. So, if price goes to 1.04800 (about 55 pips from now) then I sell and target 115 pips for take profit and a similar stop but I am not setting any trade until I see the price's reaction to this level over a couple of days or however much it takes for price to react.
      Also MARKET BASE LINE in the TDI indicator is angled down which gives a bit of confirmation for a sell bias, however, the signal line (crossing lines) are in the oversold area. So, I would wait rather than sell in a market at this state.


      GBP USD

      This pair has a good chance to enter in my opinion, A sell deal. it has already dropped a over the days with some consolidation but now, it shows 3-4 clear bearish good size candles and the TDI shows a rather good sell signal + the price dropped from a double top pattern that is clearly see on the chart attach. What worries me is the circle on the chart where price struggled during a downward movement but I'm going to enter a sell because after this struggle it went down any way.Also the weekly chart is going down in a very strong trend since EVER.

      I Opened a sell here from 1.22689 @0.03 lot size . STOP/TARGET both 233 pips to the recent support which is around 7$ of risk. If price shows something that rejects the bearish direction I might cancel the trade mid way but currently holding till something happens.

      USD/JPY is not showing me any promising trades
      USD/CAD is literally all over the place with volatile movement

      NZD/USD


      As shown of the chart, Sold because of the mentioned resistance and targeted the support level

      CAD/JPY


      is like I said in the EUR/USD.
      I will wait for some reaction more than the current. We are at a good level of double bottom and seen a good candle yesterday of bullish bias but I await another full bullish one to enter confidently. which is 50-60 pips upward from now.

      That was exhausting hahaha. it's tiresome to post images and type what I think. I hope I didn't go very wrong with this simple way I saw the charts in. The 2 deals I have opened during typing this post are these ones, and I will keep the charts around, I look every now and then TO check the trades I said I would enter if they reached a particular level but not caring or looking at the open trades, THEY have their stoploss and target and I'm gonna let them run to either.

      it feels like i'm all over the place with this type of trading, but it's a start maybe in a few days I will get a bit better
