will get there.

Donít let your victories go to your head, or your failures go to your heart.
The most difficult thing with a small account size is the need to protect your account at all costs. This means you have problems with the physcology-taking profit too early, setting stop losses too tight etc. At least these were the problems I had. I had to back test and demo for around six months before I had complete confidence that overall my system would be profitable and was in my comfort zone of position size, drawdown and losses. Once I was happy with these things then the wins could come. You need to decide what you are comfortable with and then maybe fit this around the signals. 2 lots going for fist profit target for instance until your account has grown to a size where two days of losses isnít going to slaughter your account. Also you could wait until my price is hit and wait for the retrace to get in at a much better price (but my price must be hit first).
Thanks for your email. I really appreciate someone getting in contact. It can feel like Iím out here on my own sometimes. Costa Rica-wow-I am nowhere near as exotic. Sunny old England so I trade the London breakout. I post my trades between 6am-7am GMT. Iím glad you are having some success with my strategy. In trending markets it works really well but in a sideways market you need to use your discreation and take profits when you can or at least move to breakeven as soon as is reasonable. Iím looking to win 7 out of 10 trades maximising profits and reducing losses. If I find myself in a sideways market I consider breakeven a winning trade. I try to post when I move to breakeven or if I take profits early but sometimes the market is moving so quick I donít have the time.
