    Review of my Profitable trading week (working just 2 days)

    This week enjoyed a profitable trading. Made a lot of tweak recently in my psychology and approach.  How did i have a profitable trading? I will explain you exactly that. Read on … Started this week on Monday with fear in mind. Not sure why i was little bit scared to take trades. However, i was determined to follow my process rather than the outcome and i did exactly that.  On Monday I was down -28 pips at one time but came out of hole with +28 pips.  Big drop on stock market this week, especially DOW jones. So i was expecting a large move on forex market but that…

The journey has been very difficult thus far, lot…

I would check out the new BMW or Benz on web etc. But the next thing i know the market would crush me the…

    I’m still here…

    It’s been a while since i last blogged. Yes I’m still a forex trader but things have not moved the way i planned. Got smashed back and forth over the last few months but i guess these are all part of learning curve. Not sure how long this “learning” time will remain. So it’s been 3 years since I’m trying to become a professional forex trader. I eventually thought i would be successful in less than 2 years but that has not been the case. I’m still struggling in the market and haven’t found my winning formula yet. Good things I’m still stuck to my strategy which i believe is…

    The problem is in my mind : psychology

    I cannot stress enough how important it is to have positive psychology when it comes to training. Mindset is everything. I figured i’m lacking in this department. My strategy is a winner. My risk management is top notch. I’m not over trading then what is the problem? why i’m not consistently profiting yet ? After reading the book “trading in the zone”, i have found many answers. While reading the book i thought as if it was my story. Now i’m working on fixing my mindset problems. Simple action as walking out if it is not syncing on particular days were so hard for me. For example, if i’m approaching…

    Registered a losing week both financial and psychological

    Pretty disappointing start to the month. I have had a losing week once again. Granted the market is very slow but I have done some severe mistakes. I do have a cutoff period of -50 pips and i should slow down when i hover around that mark. But this time i was on a rush for some reason so i kept on placing trades only to lose. July 5th , 2017 was really sad day for me. I lost a mammoth 100 pips. I didn’t follow my own criteria. I was taking trades on believe not what i was seeing in the market. One important lesson that i really need…

    Still a forex trader…..

    Hello all, I’m still trading Forex. Apology that I could not write blog for few months. My parents were here in Thailand so I was out for a month or so. I really needed that break as I was losing consistently in the market. So I had some time to put my thoughts together and came back strong only to lose again. Anyway, the market did not offer anything from feb to may. It was very less follow through. Really difficult market to make money. I had about 10% loss in May. And then started shaky JUNE but at the end I could come up with a positive month of…

    February 2017 Forex day trading diary, fear of missing out (FOMO)

    February has been a bit tough for me. Price action is really whippy and bouncy. Currently i’m in a hole -69 pips for the month. We still got 5 tradings days left for this month. We never know what will happen. I hope to overcome my loses and make February positive. Things have changed a lot this year. I feel i have got my edge and finally trading correctly. I’m really enjoying day-trading these days and not feeling pressure. Last year, because of consecutive loses, i used to feel nervous to trade. However, i should give credit to myself as no matter what happened, 1 hour prior to New York…

    My first profitable month at Forex day trading

    Boooom ! best month ever the January 2017. I came out profitable. The feelings are even sweeter as at one point of the month, i was well below -5% but i dug myself out from the hole and ended the month with +2.24%. This is the first time in 12 months that i could beat the market. Before i came out close but never could end positive. This has significant meaning to me. It means i’m doing something correct. I learned a lot in the last two months but overall i have been working my ass off to understand this forex market. It has just started to work for me.…
