Some Numbers for the End of the Month

- total trades: 30
- winning trades: 21
- losing trades: 9
- break even trades: 0
- percent win: 70
- percent loss: 30

- starting balance: $27.95
- ending balance: $38.70
- total profit: $10.75 (107.5 pips)
- percentage gain: 38.5

Next month, I'd like to work on collecting more pips per trade and on minimizing draw down. Hopefully I can hold onto current profits while increasing my overall account size, all in my quest to become a hundredaire. Or something like that...


  1. We're on the same journey. May the pips be with you. Hope we stay on course as we travel through this bumpy and dangerous track.

  2. That's an impressive stats. Well done and keep it up. Don't let the muggers take your money, instead you take theirs. ;)

  3. TT, GL!

    FFXD, you gotta remember I'm trading a really small account. There's a lot less fear involved and there will be a lot more gain (percentage wise). Anyway, good luck to you too!

  4. Percentage return matters the most if you are thinking or planning for long-term. :)

  5. If I had a million dollars there is no way in hell I'd risk more than 1% on each trade. Haha. I risked way more than 1% per trade here. But the practice does help. Getting real money (albeit micro) experience will pay off in the long run :)
