Trade # 1 : Opened TOS chart for less than 30 seconds, briefly glanced through the signals and straight away opened the trade?! What was I thinking? This is the punishment unto myself for being reckless! Gambler’s attitude! Cooled down, reconditioned my mindset and studied & analysed the charts, then opened Trade #2, #3 and …

So entered another trade 10 mins later to recover the position. Rested and tried out $DJI for a change. Lol… was watching a TV episode the other …

daily trade log 2012 07 20

Entering trades during pre-market tends to compliment my trading system. I noticed from the losing trades that I made, they were during an active market, except today’s.

Withdrawing funds from binary options brokers

To my horror, I read a couple of articles about the difficulties experienced by some traders in withdrawing their funds from binary options brokers only after opening my trading account with one of the brokers. While I experience no such issue with Interactive Brokers who I have maintained my account with over the past five …
