Didnt realise there was an early high impact news announcement at 7am this morning until i checked the forex factory site after the trade but it turned out ok with a straightforward 20 pips. red SES appeared and everything else was in the right place so entry placed @ 4 pips beyond lowest point of previous candle and that was that.
Started using just 2 pairs & a tighter set of rules on the 27th October and have just gone through 1000 pips. So thats 3 1/3 months – over 12 mths that would about 3,500 pips if it continues the same way, following just 2 pairs with a low risk strategy. I’m sure a couple of differently correlated pairs such as the yens or usd/chf would double that.
Running total +1012 pips
