October 2009 Review
I had great intentions of doing a good bit of posting last month. There was even a decent amount of market action and trading news to comment on. Work and family commitments conspired against me. What little free time I had left was spent unwinding playing IL2 Sturmovik: Birds Of Prey.
My actual trading was not impeded and I had nine trades closed out during October. Five winners and four losses. Not a great ratio but the results make for much better viewing.
My (demo) account equity grew by 12.52%.
This is definitely a monthly return that I’m happy with. My goal is 10%, so having gotten past that mark was gratifying.
Since I was unable to review these trades on a day by day (or even week by week) basis, here’s the blotter on how they unfolded:
|Entry Date||Exit Date||Market||Direction||Entry||Exit||Pips|
|30 Sept||1 Oct||EUR/USD||Short||1.4647||1.4547||100|
|2 Oct||2 Oct||EUR/USD||Short||1.4547||1.4647||(100)|
|2 Oct||6 Oct||EUR/USD||Short||1.4622||1.4722||(100)|
|2 Oct||5 Oct||EUR/USD||Short||1.4597||1.4697||(100)|
|6 Oct||14 Oct||EUR/USD||Long||1.4747||1.4897||150|
|6 Oct||14 Oct||EUR/USD||Long||1.4697||1.4897||200|
|19 Oct||20 Oct||EUR/USD||Short||1.4954||1.4904||50|
|26 Oct||26 Oct||EUR/USD||Long||1.4972||1.4872||(100)|
|27 Oct||28 Oct||EUR/USD||Short||1.4872||1.4722||150|
So when all was said and done I had accumulated 250 pips for the month. Here’s what the trades looked like on my charts. Oanda only tracks historical trades for about the last two weeks, so I have to show two charts to make sure that all trades for the month are displayed.
