This is some additional tinkering with Excel spreadsheet...

Still learning about forex(i.e. lot sizes, pips, margin, etc.)

I saw this last night:

"How To Make A Million In 40 Trades"

http://www.tradeology.com/million-dollar-trade.html

I figured if he can, why can't anyone?

So I created...

"How to turn $1,000 into TEN TRILLION DOLLARS in a year and still take 2 weeks off!"

You start with $1000.00 and make 10 pips a day trading FOREX.


Attached is the Excel file.

That's a cool take on the method.

Grow the account so you can make $2000 a day and stop compounding.

Minimizes the risk, yet makes enough pips to pay for tacos at a Mexican beach resort.. I like it!!

Hujer:

If you used a $100 PT and a larger than $100 SL your system is definitely going to present negative results because everytime you lose you have to win twice to make up for it. This screws with the statistics. It is also my opinion that this system can not be traded mechanically. There are many descretional signs that are obvious even in the chart that you posted.

For example in the losing trade on the chart, there are 3 red candles and 1 green candle with HUGE top wicks. This is a sign that the sellers are pushing back on the buyers and there is really no reason to even chance a long at this point. This is a neutral trade.

In summary, don't trade this with automation, we've been through backtesting before with TRO and know what he thinks about it. My advice is to forward test the system and see what results you get.

10 pips could = $1,000 , a $1 or $8.75...

The biggest factor is the lot size - on a mini-lot (10,000), a pip = $1.00 on the GBP/USD but on the USD/MXN it's $0.09.

If your'e trading full lots (100,000) it's $10 for a GBP/USD pip and around $8 for the USD/CHF pip.

Without the lot size and the pip value of that currency pair, you cannot compute the dollar value of a pip.
