This one isn’t forex so its not part of the challenge but I wanted to include it because I thought it was interesting.
P/L + 1%
The only reason I didn’t hold this over this weekend is because December is seasonally bullish and S&P was at the bottom of the range we have been sitting at since October.
I got in when the hourly closed engulfing red right underneath polarity. Normally I know these go at least far enough to lower my stop to break even. Then its a free trade and I let them ride.
Since I am taking a break from equities to learn forex P/L, doesn’t matter but it was +1%
The only thing I would do different going forward is setting my stop to break even and letting this one ride. Its the only way I am going to grow my account.
