How were the first weeks of the year?
ap-zulu with its aggressive (but dangerous) strategy, recovered its losses and also the High Profit Factor ones.
Forex Cruise Control managed to almost recover and the other provider did the rest!
And for that “little” ZuluTrade blackout problem, everything ended fine.
My fourth week in forex trading was awesome, if I don’t consider that, due to the spread between AAAFx and FXDD, my reverse signals gave me a 30 euros loss instead making 10 euros.
So, I just disabled every signal that is using FXDD, probably I will open another one with FXDD to reduce slippage and those damages that spread can do.
The graph is still good, because I did not close that orphan trades… I hope in a recover…
Last friday I was worried about 6 microlots of eur/usd that were opened against the trend.
Then monday morning it was almost on par.
I did not miss the chance and I immediately changed the take profit values for the three positions. Even if I could end at +48 pips (about 7 euros), I saw that the situation was like in a rollercoaster; so I preferred to be safer than sorry and put crescent values, closing at 35 pips (about 5 euro).
If I didn’t close that position by myself, the signal would have close them at 7 pips each. Risking 80 euros to gain 5, is priceless…
Saturday I was worried about a position left open for the weekend.
Last night, 25 minutes after the opening of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, closed with a 30 pips, which resulted in a gain of 2.77 euros.
