Patch (or Potch :)): No problem!! Just a little twist on the famous painting.

patriotstef: I think you should start with the basic - the infamous horizontal lines http://kreslik.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1946 or the BuyZone http://kreslik.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1050. May be you should keep the number of indicator to maximum 3 and learn to SEE the price action and reaction.

Keep it simple :)

Good luck with your trading!!

Try to keep it simple!
Trade with the system you feel ok!
Choose your goal for a day, like 30pips every day...
Don't be greedy, be realistic!

Make your own money management!
I trade with 10c per pip...
If i reach goal 150 pips or 300pips, i can trade 20c per pip...
After another 150pips or 300pips, i can trade 30c per pip...
How much i am allowed to lose in one day? Let's say 30 pips.
You reach profit 30 pips... You stop for a day!
Even if it's one, good trade...
Try to trade that way...

You, always, must have a plan! Stick to it!
Every person has a different way to trade!
What works for me, doesn't mean will work for you!
So try to come up with your own way to trade and profit in forex.
You won't find answer in google, how to trade and profit in forex... Only ideas!

P.s.
I gave my girlfriend a system... (she's newbie)
She made 1100pips in one week, on demo account...
I can't even make 10 pips on that system... 8)

Liquidotype,

I've read what you wrote 1000 times.
I"ve believed it for a long time but just now starting to be able to apply it.....

My wife started trading the buyzone 3 days ago....2 trades per day only at london open and then the next hr.....she's doing good.

thanks for the refresher.

my wife is very good with the buyzone aswell. Ladies have a level of awarness that guys will never have. They can scan a room full of people in about 10 seconds and tell you what every ladies shoes they are wearing and be able to tell you if they own them already or if they would go with anything they own. Me being a guy I can only tell in ten seconds the woman who has the biggest set of boobs and keep from saying ouch to loud when I get pinched on the inside of my arm when she catchs my looking to long.

Don't forget a lot of people or lying about making pips.
It is nice you can show of and telling on forums you are making big bucks but don't forget there is just 5% who is telling the thruth and 2% of them are the big boys. There is a lot mambo jambo about systems!!!

Hi Gert

Great to see your post a short time ago. I hope you all are doing well. My son and his wife and number one and only grandson just moved to Dallas.

I imagine your business is doing great right now. Is Texas going to succeed from the USA? If o I am moving to Houston in spite of my love for the Outter Banks, OBX, NC. And your trading the metals still with greater success?
