So my zig zag indicator only allows one set of settings. Does this then mean you have 1 chart ( say a 4 Hour ) with two separate zig zags on it, and 1 daily chart with 2 separate zig zags.
I hasten to add that the only reason I don't understand this is because there are times when I can be as thick as two planks of wood nailed together
ST, if it is not too intrusive a question, what details do you keep on your spreadsheet ? I tried keeping a journal but stopped for two reasons. First reason was probably pure and utter laziness, second reason was I found myself writing a novel for every entry and I knew I would never go back and read all that ( again, pure laziness )
Anyway, as far as the trading goes I've been trapped in the same bloody trade for most of the week. Shouldn't complain realy as I suppose I'm still in rather than being stopped out. Had the chance to get out yesterday as d-pip mentioned but missed it. But if it runs all week and THEN i get stopped out, the toys may well get thrown out of the pram this weekend !!
One final thing, my live trading account has it's first birthday on May 7th. Now I don't want you crazy kids running out and buying balloons and cake and stuff, but I did have an idea I thought I would throw out.
I thought about starting another thread - a report card of sorts. I would write one article only in that thread and probably not even get involved in a discussion on it. The one article would probably be fairly long ( you don't say HoG !! ) and it would be about the one, or two, things I have found most difficult about trading FX live, or the things I have struggled with the most.
But it wouldn't be just a simple - I always forget to place a stop loss - end of. My article would be about what I believe my weaknesses are in trading, WHY I think I have those weaknesses and what I have done, or am doing, to improve on those weaknesses.
As I say, I don't think I would get involved in a discussion on that thread, just post the article for others to read and maybe recognise a bit of themselves in there. I wondered if any other traders ( might be a bit presumptuous calling myself a trader ) experienced or newbie, would also be interested in posting a one off article in it detailing what they have struggled with the most and how they are combating that.
Anyway, better go, work is beckoning. But REMEMBER, no cake, I don't like cake. But if you do feel the urge then it's only fair to let you know I don't like raisins, just sponge, strawberry jam sponge, with marzipan...................better stop now before I reveal too much about my cake fetish !!
