I just trade when i have time. Yes i trade all day long untill price starts slowing down.

When i am working i try to reach 30 pips/day
When i am home trading all day my target is 100/day

But when price moves fast and give me more then i stay on and take some trading day off. I have to spend my money :P


its hard earned even tho easy-if you catch my drift.....dragon33 on days like today have you ever found that tight stops are hit more often coz of the volatility or is it a case of.......

if your trading in the right direction and your timing is good(through experience) then will be fine.

i had 2 small stopouts totalling -17 pips and on the 3rd attempt caught GU for +67

Would you say its all about managing the losses meaning keeping them small?Also what makes you hold on for more gains as oppose to cutting a winner short,apart from more financial muscle :P

Also, I kept hearing the reps say that this is FU. And I heard one of them say that this might be the end. The end of what I dunno. But some people are getting screwed.



i had a couple order and price sticks 1 3 min price freeze

i wasn't trading when it went it first ballistic

not sure if there is anything u can do

once orders go live or are pending it is supposed to be on their servers so they should have filled

anything can happen when things get nuts like this

not sure

This is what the GU H1 zline looked like at 1.5075 today on a 5 sec chart

Blue boxes are moves of 10 pips in 10 sec. When they occur at the at key SR points, and psychological numbers AND price continues to move in that direction price usually moves 125 pips or more from that initial 10 sec/10 pip surge

I guess mbtrading is belly up eh?

It won't close open position and it's been over an hr.
I'm +235 atm.

I drained the fxdd account, it's still working great.

Made about +50% of what was lost in a few trades with fxcm and then it went bonkers too.

Funny that the mt4 buckets keep working perfectly.

They are saying that all this havoc was caused by a trader mistaking a million for a billion.

http://www.cnbc.com/id/36999483

They sold a billion shares of Proctor and Gamble which was on the DOW, and in turn all the indices and currencies followed.

A lot of people lost their entire trading accounts today most likely due to margin calls.

were your orders out and didn't fill, or you couldn't put out any orders?

as soon as i get in a position my orders (exit and stop) go out that same exact time and i just move them

so if i get in a trade i have a stop that is entered at the same exact time


again though i wasn't trading when it was ballistic
