Forex Adventures
« on: July 21, 2021, 12:34:02 AM »
This trading journal thread is all about my Forex adventures,

Not my past adventures but my current and future adventures.

Tuesday July 20, 2021, I set up a brokerage account with Blackbull Markets in New Zealand. As a Canadian, New Zealand is pretty much the last safe (read regulated but not too tight like NFA in the US  [and Canadian brokers have followed along with NFA] or FCA in the UK, ASIC in Australia or ESMA in Europe) area unless I want to go with offshore, which I don't.

That brokerage account has been setup with two MT4 accounts. Live account one (1) has been loaded with 80% of my capital and Live two (2) contains the other 20%.

To start with, Live 1 will be trading using the PZ Day Trading EA. I plan to eventually trade EURUSD, GBPUSD and USDJPY on this account but I am introducing the pairs slowly to make sure nothing untoward takes place.

Live 2 is trading My Forex Signal from SignalStart (https://www.signalstart.com/analysis/my-signal-forex/197313).

I have also connected both accounts to both major publishers FXBlue and MyFXBook. FXBlue shows some account information in the transaction list so I have put a pin number on it's web pages.

The MyFXBook URL's are:
1. https://www.myfxbook.com/members/rsmereka/live1au/8693007
2. https://www.myfxbook.com/members/rsmereka/live2au/8693043

My watchlist is available for everyone to read. It is a plain text file. I try to keep it updated each trading day. Get it from http://alpine.future-lab.com/tmp/watchlist.txt

This post will be updated with the most accurate information upon any change.

Stay tuned for more adventures.

Sorry guys,

Institutional account.

Even if it was not, I am not a fan of rebates.

Thanks for sharing. I will be following your adventures.

I assume that if any on your watchlist becomes compelling you will either reallocate capital or assign new capital, from your profits.

Absolutely,

I just added the second pair (EURUSD) to Live 1. Overnight, I got 0.6 pips on a USDJPY trade on live 1. My Forex Signal was the star with 2 EURUSD trades on Live 2 for a total return of 0.157%, 31.3 pips. There is another EURUSD trade in progress on Live 2.

I just added the third currency pair, GBPUSD to my Live 1 account,

Today, so far on my Live 1 account, EURUSD has had four winners and made up some for yesterdays loss. The account is still at bit in the red (0.17%).

My Live 2 account also had four EURUSD winners although I am concerned about one of the two open trades (also EURUSD buy) that currently is some 57 pips in the hole.

I would not be too worried about that My Signal trade in the red for a bit. It's the way he trades. Just look at the sequence back in June for instance as per image.

Of course if one of his large recovery trade (4 or 5 lots) got out of hand..... But that has not happened since he started in 2018. He always starts a sequence with small contract.

No worries here. I just checked my ddmon EA right on the account and the current floating DD is 0.55% and there are three open trades all at the same lot size. I'll keep an eye out for the recovery trade nevertheless.
