Hi dchappy,
Thanks for the kind words. I think I have been trading about 7-8 years, but off and on. Have to admit, I learned everything the hard way, and of course with the forum and various teachers and books. Still not there yet, as can be seen by my pip size, but working on it. I can always remember what you said, something to the effect of (I am paraphrasing): Being a successful trader takes time, its more like a marathon than a sprint. :)
That keeps me going!

All the best,
West

This morning early NY session, choppy for me (with regards to my style of trading) on the 15M; break-even on the morning. I'll take that. Done.
(Its days like this I tempt that, and push things, and ends up being a disaster for me.)

All the best,
West

Price is going crazy :shock:
And I wanted to stay out because it’s friday LOL

Conservative targets saved me today in 1 trade but I’ve been stopped out in another one just because of a massive spread and choppy PA.

Yeah, Mira, it's these kinds of days I tend to lose on, so learning to stop trading on days where things just don't flow (for me). And maximize gains on days when they do.
