Hello all - new here but always looking

I’m Allan, glad to meet you all. I have been a long time viewer of babypips site in general, but it’s finally time I stepped on this side :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

A few years of trading experience (off and on honestly), but I would definitely say I am still a very new trader and have many more mistakes ahead lol… hopefully not, but I’m looking to improve that with time!

I suggest you open a journal to record the process and outcome of every trade you make. Most mistakes arise from emotional attachment to every live trade.

Fear not, you cannot control what the market throws at you. All you can do is to ALWAYS close losing trades early, and nurse winning ones - suggest move S/L to breakeven, scalp c.50% profit, and follow up using a trailing stop.

Hope that helps.
