I was here at the beginning - so long ago I forgot my username so I started a new acct. Like most, I lost a ton in the beginning - so, I turned to automated trading only - wrote hundreds of EA's over the years - some work very well, but if you watch them run you can see many mistakes that they make - and it is very difficult to code in all of what the eye can plainly see.
So, I am back at trying my hand at manual trading as well and figured I'd drop in on you guys. Amazing stuff you've all been doing.
I opened an account just for manual trading - goal is 100% by July 1st. Need to get comfy with larger lot sizes if I am to succeed - have trouble trading big - my best EA's run on tick charts so watching the float on a manual position is relatively new to me. Any suggestions appreciated - also, do you guys still hang out in a chat room during trading hours? Manual trading is lonely.
I would aim for 100% in 5 weeks, about +60 lines per week or +12 lines per day (3 lines = 1%).
You don't really need a large lot size to reach your goal, just narrow the spacing of the lines a bit as you gain OPM.
