Okay @_bob - You have my attention. !
BAsically I am a longer term contrarian and never made any pips at all intraday - I tried paper trading it a number of times always losing pips every day. However, I am retired now and only do freelance work, so I tried again last week or so - on 3 separate days, and day1 I lost 36 pips, day 2 I made 70 pips by being lucky, although I was 4 pips up for the rest of the day apart from the luckand stopped trading that day after I got out of the retracement on the lucky spike and day 3 I had 5 winners 3 losers for +35 pips.
Going to take the dog walkies now, but when I get back, I shall read this thread from the beginning.
Is the book you reference at the beginning, really the best you have found on this stuff ?
40% on a $1,000 in 3 weeks - is quite remarkable
