My Trade Diary.
This is not a signal service. Neither a place to discuss my trades nor system. This is me putting my thoughts and actions in a journal. I am talking to myself, when you see notes other than trades. It is a way to keep track of what I did and what I have to do.

I will take trade at a price where I really can't lose. That's the KEY in my setup.

I will edit post#1 as I take new trades.
I watch the chart when I get alerted by email.
Since the signal is based on higher TF, it will take a while to hit TP.
I don't sit at terminal and monitor constantly. I only do sporadic monitoring.
Best of all, I don't worry about news as it will only push the trade towards target.

I don't set STOPs as I know my trades; next signal is my exit.
If you want, use your own STOPs and manage the trade as you wish.

Adding one more trade this week.

Let me end this week with a prayer.

Dear Lord, Thank you for this great opportunity. I was not successful during my initial days and all my money were going to drain. You showed me right people at the right time. With that I had acquired knowledge and then learned how to apply that knowledge to trade successfully. I believe in my heart that WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE; in that all, the Fx Trading is also there. Thank you Lord, for being kind and forgiving and also for making this journey as pleasant as it could. Thank you again.

Om.

That's all this week.
Have a joyful weekend people!!!

Though, I posted the trades with SL, personally I am not using any STOPs. All I know is price will get to the TP levels. may be if someone can help to establish good stops, that will be a good addition.

I will keep posting my trades.

long setup is forming in Gold.

Good luck. Where is your stop?

Stop is an integral part of your trade plan. The trade journal is no more than a diarize record of how you intend to execute, manage and eventually close your position. A good stop is only as good as your trade plan - not someone else view of where your stop should be.

You said that you don't use stops because price will get to your TP levels. What happens if it doesn't and it continues to go against you - at what point do you say your view is wrong? If you don't determine that up front, the decision making process becomes more clouded if and when the position starts to go against you. This pathway has been taken by many traders who have blown accounts. It is called not cutting your losses but letting it run.

there is no excitement in trading after knowing that the trade will turn as expected. what a difference from early days... those were exciting as I was looking for profit and even few pips made me so excited. now its a boring activity...just another waiting game...huh...

I converted my system into mq4 file. I am also writing that in c++ to make that as dll file.
anyway, it is really nice to see the indicator in action.
Do I make that as Expert Advisor, probably not. I like to trade manually; I also have the setup on the side to see if the indicator misreads any data.
glad I spent the weekend on this mq4 file; now I have to do minimal check only. just check with higher TF...really cool...
oh...this system still needs a repainting indicator on the chart...but that's ok; don't want add that condition in my code.

good night people; time to sleep. :)

If you are looking for any system or indicator, back off... this is NOT a place...

I am sharing my activities, just to give confidence to the traders who are having no success yet. not to sell/share any of my methods.

that's the reason I have this thread in Journal section.

To be successful in any field, all I have to know is, there is one person who made it....same here...I had fails in the past...now things changed...same with you or any person who is reading this thread, just keep working, you will get what you deserve, not what you need.


so are you gonna share the indicator ?

congrats

Hello Fx-pips,

although I understand very well that you do not want to "give" your system that works for you,
I think you could enlighten our community giving, who are the people that God has put you on your way,
and what is this "knowledge" (studies, systems' books, threads ...) that allowed you to become a profitable trader.

Thank your God with prayer, is certainly honorable,
but thank the people who helped you, some in this forum, I suppose, is not bad either.

Some links to this "knowledge" would be welcome.

Thank you in advance.

The Sell and Share requests won't be honored, End of discussion.

I was in search of knowledge and I found people with His help.

I paid heavily to those people, most just wanted the dollars...lol...that's human nature and it was ok as I know there will be couple of people who will exchange knowledge for the price I paid. There is no free meal; you have to pay the price. Don't expect someone to give either free food or free ride.

All that knowledge led me to one place. And from there I devised my own and things started getting better and better.

I don't respond anymore for this kind of system/setup/indicator requests. I shut that door.

Trades and activities will be posted as usual in post#1.

And again I remind you people, this is my Trade and Activity Diary; not a place for anything else;

Waoouh, I do not think I have been discourteous in my first post with you.

You do not seem to understand, I've not asked your system, I do not care.

But if you can not give links to threads or people that you have found interesting, you should not post on this forum, which is a forum for support and sharing.
In some of your previous posts, you asked for help and links of systems.

Your religious fervor is really fun and seems inconsistent with your narrow-minded attitude.
I leave you to your intellectual masturbation.

First of all, if you don't care you should not be posting in this thread at all.

All the people were personally contacted; those were all one to one talk which lasted for several days, either in their place or over Skype. I traveled to meet them regardless of distance.

I challenge you to do the same and see if you can find people and ask them around. You need good resources as well; it is not easy to travel London, Singapore, Shanghai and quite a few other places and spending days away from home.

I guess, you are trying to send something to me in your last post....
I am not accepting your words and sending them back to you.
I am not asking mods to remove this either as this will reveal you to others.
and my last suggestion to you is just GROW UP.

I will post my journal somewhere else; it is common sense to know that this thread is posted in Journal section, not in Trading systems section; still people think they have the right to know what others are using; it seems really odd to me. I am not critical about people asking systems in the section where systems are shared. when someone comes to journal and still have nerve to ask the system or any info, I don't know what to say.

good bye everyone.
