My strategy was awesome LOL. I worked a full time job on night shift. I just discovered trading and spent half a dozen hours looking at charts after downloading a FXCM demo platform. I looked for an instrument going up, pressed the sell button at about 6pm local time. I went to work a few hours later, came back in the morning and saw my trade in profit 15-30 pips x 1 lot = $150-$300. Then closed the trade.
I did this every day for a month and printed out a report and showed my colleges and said I'm quitting to become a professional trader it is so easy....I quit a few weeks later but not solely for that reason alone, there were other more genuine reasons but nonetheless I expected trading to provide my income.
And that folks was my ticket in to the Abyss !!!!
