Assuming you trade lot sizes of at least 10M (~$940 per pip on jpy pairs) in your big account, you must have made greater than or close to a million dollars today (950 * 943 = 895850).
You are a demi-god of trading.
Since you are aiming for sextillion, you may consider starting a hedge fund, soon you can be world's top 10 traders.http://www.forbes.com/pictures/mdg45ejf ... n-griffin/
This is kind of why I don't like posting, cuz a lot of what I say gets taken out of context or distorted. My "big" account is treated with respect and traded more long term and with little to no leverage. I aim for 100% as a goal and if I do add a zero I am extremely happy. The account that I normally talk about on hear is a offshore broker with high leverage and a no negative balance. The lotsizes are limited by the broker pure trade and I empty it every week. So the gains are never compounded after Friday. Im more of dumbass of trading then a demi god. I would never trade public money or put myself out in public. I try not to even post trade ideas on here because it makes me feel the need to be right and then my trading goes to s**t.
There is nothing special or good about me. All my friends thought I would be dead or in jail by 21. I am now 31 and before forex had no clue what I was doing with my life. I kno what its like to have to steal just to eat and not knowing where I would be sleeping at night. Aslo when I told my partent that I wanted to trade forex they told me I would fail and couldn't do it. So when I first started when every I lost money they made sure to remind me of it and that I failed. So I bring a very messed up attitude toward trading. I could care less about the money. My shoes are 7 years old, I only wear gym shorts and t shirts. The only material thing I like are cars. I grew up with going to car shows with my dad. The majority of my money is for others so they never have to go what I have. Since you brought up sextillion, Ill be completely truthly. My goal is to trade to a billion just so I can give it away. I don't have any friends, my last relationship was 6 years ago and about the only peole I see or talk to are my parents. I am extremely private and anti social. But Im getting side tracked. I said all that to make this point. Why do most peole trade. What do they fear, worry about. I trade cuz its that or go back to hustling. I could care less whether I win or lose. I enter trades without hesistation, because all it is, is a chart with numbers on it. Its a game.
Aslo I am not even in the top 10 traders on this website. Dragon would put me to shame if he were still he. Ja puts me to shame. Same with alaismith and breathan and the others. My trading has very little behinded it besides I got lucky that a random line happened to hit a place where prive might go. I haven't been trading long (a few years) and maybe profitable for a year. Maybe I have just been getting lucky for all I know. The real traders on this board have real thought and reasoning behind their trading. Im just a side show freak who after 8 years finally understood price cancels profit and pairtots back what momo said years ago and know longer even talks about those ideas, and honestly wishes I would shut the hell up.
Ok I know that post sounds all doom and gloom but worry not. I just don't want people to look up to me or try to trade like me or think im good at trading. Do yourselfs a favor and choose someone else. Ok, haha. But thank you for thinking that anyways.
