Hi guys,

Thanks for checking out my blog.

Last Wednesday I made one of the worst trades that I ever made. I over leveraged (greed), stopped myself out to early (fear) and allowed a nice winner to become a big loser. ((I got be more like Larry!!))

From a technical stand point the trade was planned perfectly and I should have profited from it or took a small loss. Instead, I allowed it to get away from me and once again put my fund in jeopardy....

Hi Guys...

Well, This ain't no 1000 pip DREBG trade.. (I wish).. But it was a successful trade non the less. I managed to do okay on this one. I wanted to show this trade and try to give you an example of the way I like to day trade forex and what has yielded me the little success I've had. My goal is to attempt to day trade it more, instead of holding.. But It's going to be difficult.

I should have just been short the euro all of this time and kept shorting it....

Hi Guys,

Thanks for checking out the blog.

This past Thursday I met up with a group of traders for a nice little pow wow about the state of the markets. We talked mainly about the market crash from the week before (I know, old news now) what might have caused it, and different ideas on how we are going to plan to trade for the future.

Hi Guys,

Once again, thanks for checkiing out my blog and taking interest in what I'm up to.

Obviously, It's been a while since I've posted anything. Ive been EXTREMELY busy with a lot of things in both my regular job, family, and my trading endeavors. This post might be a little long winded and I might ramble a bit so please forgive me ahead of time. I'm going to cover a lot of the things that have been going on from managing the fund, job, and personal development.....

Hi guys, I just wanted to give you guys a peak at one of the lessons from the new course I'm putting together. I'm still working out a few things and there's other things I want to add to the lessons. I was hoping to have this thing rolled out soon but trading has set me back. I'm trying out this technology from Adobe because it gives me better control over the material.
