It's really frustrating that EURAUD took out my SL at 1.6260 by 3 pips yesterday (the lowest level reached was 1.6257), and now it's back up nearly 100 pips!

Just my luck I guess. :(

By the way, I have decided to increase the lot size on my SFE Combo account to 2 lots per trade, which will make it trade at the same risk as the SFE Combo Aggressive account for now.

The last good run we had was in July and August last year so it's been about 6 month of stagnation, and I believe we will have another big gain soon.

Once my SFE Combo account makes some good gains I will reduce the risk back down again. :)

yes, this is why manual trading is very difficult, because when situations like this happens, anyone begins to break his own rules a tend to make bad trades. We can't leave emotions apart.

Manual Trade: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=0#week)
-$2019.00

This week was a good week for all the EAs with all of them making some profit. The most frustrating thing was my manual trade got stopped out by 3 pips and I would have had another $6000 in profit now if my trade didn't get stopped out. >:(

Anyway, as Joel said manual trading is very difficult and I have stuck to my rules not to revenge trade. I have increased the lot size on the EAs to 2 lots per trade now and I am confident the EAs will make back the losses for me very soon. ;D

Unfortunately the NFP was another dud and we didn't get much extension on the trades, and lost back the initial floating profits.

Oh well, there is always next week! 8)

Yes it's been a bit of a wild ride the last few days...after a 6-day losing streak I finally made back over $11K today and my account is back above $100K again :)

Special thanks to SFE Breakout for the great Gold trades, and I also took an extra manual Gold buy trade that added another $5.7K to the profit! ;)

Now that we have recovered most of the losses, we just need some more nice price movements to make a new equity high from here! ;D

By the way, I just checked some other systems, and with the chaos in the market recently, Frero is now in 40% DD and Goldstar is in 60% DD.

Again, it shows the danger of grid systems and also how robust Joel's EAs are...I wonder if they can recover from their DDs this time... ::)

Wow I don't have the Breakout robot so it's been a pretty crap week for me so far!!! Almost had good profits a few times on GBPUSD but just didn't follow through.

Yes, very bad luck with the GBP trades because half of them was at 2-3 pips of distance of the TP....
And today more GBP SELL trades has been closed just before the final big down movement...

Frero just has hedge the big buy positions as we can see in the decrease of the risk



he preffers to pay commission and swaps opening a lot of sell positions instead of close the buys, all for keep the balance in uptrend. Is a dirty trick only for keep the newbies followers.

Frero and a lot of other signals last two years, are just applying the grid+martingale concept now that EURUSD moves very narrow.

You can win a lot until the account is wipped from one day to another. And then, begin again with fresh fish.

+$5845.11

It was an interesting week - we started with a string of losses and things turned around when Gold had a massive breakout. SFE Breakout managed to catch the initial breakout and my account made a decent gain from it. I also took a manual trade copying SFE Breakout's Gold trade and made additional profit. :)

The only thing I felt bad about was - why didn't I buy more Gold?? :P

On the other hand, it was interesting to see SFE PA had a positive result this week but SFE Attractor had a loss. I think it could be due to the larger price movements this week, which may favour SFE PA. SFE PA also tends to hold trades longer whereas SFE Attractor tends to close trades early when the trades don't go into profit straight away, and can miss out on trades that would eventually continue in the direction of the momentum and hit TP.

SFE NS didn't do so well with the stronger price movements this week which is understandable. Nevertheless SFE Stealth still managed to end the week at about breakeven which shows its ability to avoid large losses in a week with bigger price movements.

Next week the Forex calendar is rather light, but given Friday will be the last trading day in February, and this February has 29 days which only happens every 4 years, I kind of feel there could be some surprise movements as the month draws to a close. The global economy could also be severely impacted by the coronavirus spread, which at the moment still seems unlikely to be contained any time soon. I think that could be the perfect catalyst for some unexpected large price movement in the near future, like what has already happened to Gold.

Will my account finally make a new equity high next week after 6 months of stagnation?...We shall see. ;)

yes damn!
incredible drop of the stock indexes....
I'm gonna test what happens if I use an US major index to filter dangerous situations. I have the feeling that always that the US stock market moves a lot, strong movements in the currencies happens at the same time.
