My apologies for the lack of posts lately. I've been extremely busy.
In addition to trading daily (when time permits), I am presently helping coach a 15-17 year old elite hockey team (which requires considerable time as we're on the ice 5 or 6 days a week with lots of travel. I also officiate hockey games in several different leagues, teach an ESL course to about 15 students from Monday to Friday from 9:15am-12:15am, and have 2 young kids who are busy with activities etc... It's been hectic to say the least.
Trade-wise, I've been having a bad few weeks. As soon as the Yen took a dive, it cost my open trades / portfolio over 100k. I haven't imposed a moratorium on trading for myself but I have been very careful in watching my margin level. I'm still trading, still making money on trades, but my portfolio took a major hit. I've got some EUR/JPY trades I opened over a year ago that are getting worse. I have a ton of USD/JPY trades that are getting killed. They will turn around. As soon as another world catastrophe happens, the yen will shoot back up in a hurry.
Am I worried? You should always be worried / concerned in this business. But I am still confident that in the coming months I'll be way ahead and continue towards my goals.
I just opened 2 one-lot buy orders this morning of USD/CAD @ 1.05797 and they are up $90 / piece. Lots of room to rise...
