Yeah, sure. As you know my name is Phil. I am from Greater Manchester, England.
I have been trading about 2 years now but only went live in July 2015 with a small cash deposit. I had a Demo account with Alpari UK, although you guys will know what happened to them in January last year due to the peg being lifted. Although this affected a lot of people in a negative way, it taught me a lot about broker types.
I am now trading with Vantage UK, now called GoMarkets UK, since about the time of my registration, they were about to merge together again. They were previously merged but decided to go their separate ways circa 2009 if I remember correctly.
I mainly use technicals and price action to trade and although I have had consistent running trades in the past, this is not always the case, and I am now down about 20% on my account, although I will not wipe myself out in a hurry.
This is why I am now trying to learn the fundamental side of trading and why I went to the Fundamental-ville forum first. This thread seemed interesting because I like the idea of having a lot of data to analyse, so this is the first thread I have been on since my graduation from the “School of pipsology”, although I am keen to try other threads and forums too.
I can only apologise for not introducing myself first and will do so in the future.
