October Blog Results +1,994 pips

I’ve decided to start posting my trade results from trades I’ve mentioned on this blog. I don’t blog all my trades (I’d never have time to trade if I did so) but I do touch on many here as I tend to follow different pairs for a period of time. I had a little trouble combing back through my posts but believe I have it correct below. For the month of October the results are a net gain of +1,994 pips. In some of the trades, as I’ve noted below, I took partial profits. I wasn’t sure how to report those so I added them together, e.g. if I closed out half at 50 and the rest at 100, I count 150. I’m not sure this is the best way to represent this. If anyone has a better idea, please post a comment.

Regardless, it was a good month. I had a big advantage this month in that the market presented many clear opportunities. Finally, it’s clear the number was so high primarily from trading GBPUSD and USDCAD. I put a lot of analysis into these two based on what I saw on my charts. That’s what paid off. I have had losing months in the past as well and if I blog about trades that result in a net loss you’ll see them here. That’s why I post the charts that show my actual trades. Anybody can say they made pips in the market but they never show you the trades as they go.
