I’ve been waiting to post this thread since I’ve had a bunch of losing trades since following the blog (?) BUT I think it is time. It’s now February and if I end up blowing my account from following their trade ideas… then so be it. But hopefully not lol.
If you’re new to my trading journal, I follow Chart Art trade ideas. I don’t follow all of their trade ideas though and I make sure to check if the trend is still valid by the time I see the post as sometimes I see their posts a full 6-8 hours later. My account size is small at $350 and I take about one to two trades per week, sometimes none if I don’t see any good setups/I’m busy with work.
Last year, I made 21% from following Chart Art trade ideas. This year is proving to be a lot more difficult. I have a bunch of losing trades so far and one of them without a stop loss My bad trading habits are finally catching up to me.
I will talk about the trades below as per usual and I will try to also keep a running table of how much I’ve made or lost…
