If your a forex trader like me, you will quite enjoy the thought of a forex trading journal... I will trading real money and documenting my earnings and losses on the Forex market. Having studied the markets for a while now, and gained the fundamental ranging to advanced and complicated knowledge of what affects the price of the currencies we know so locally as money. The USD. The GBP. The EUR. The JPY. That's my speciality as I have come to know it. I also trade commodities on certain obvious occasions; however these occasions are very rare and somewhat more tricky and expensive than the usual currency trading I am so well versed at. I will like to make this journal really interesting and would love it if it helped upcoming forex traders or experienced forex traders optimize their game and make even greater profits as well as minimise their risk and maximise their gain. I want this thread to be a good place for anyone interested in knowing what step to take when trading forex, as well as gaining confidence in their decisions. I will be posting in high detail, with the usual sorts like: Amount invested. Long/Short Stop Loss Take Profit Leverage OPENING TIP: When trading REAL money, trade only when confident and think of your money as virtual and not "real"... so as to limit human emotion.
