Moving into live trading

I know it'll be a completely different game from emotions and liquidity, but I'm really motivated and got my system defined and I'm very confident in it. It's a tiny account I'll be using for live practice. Next week there's a local holiday so I'll be able to watch the charts all day to improve my decision making.

I'll keep a journal to tell you guys how bad it goes...

Thanks for the tips! I must say I haven't tested the current iteration of my system all that much. I had tested it prior to a recent improvement, and it was breaking even, tho most losers I could quickly tell that it was my mistake and not the system.

I'll do it! Thanks!

But then I'd miss timing and get bad RR, no?

Use ur demo account first to observe trades and open. If you are confident in the trade then emulate the trade on live

Keep a trading journal which logs all of your trades as well as date and time and if possible, a screenshot of the chart at the time of entry. Then as you sit and watch the market, you can write down your thought process on why you entered and what is your stop and target. Review said journal on the weekend to learn from mistakes.

How sure that your system works, every successful trade strategy need proof in some sort of back test results weather by manually or automatically for a period of time at least from one year and more. This need to apply to potential currency pairs, if its good results, thats gonna be real trade with no emotional and liquidity involved. Sorry for grammar.

Thanks! Don't worry I'm just keeping the weekend alive here. I'll be posting results more like a 50-trades basis, maybe.

Good luck. Please check our rules for posting in the sidebar and adhere to them; sorry to be authoritarian about this but we've seen that when we (mods) don't enforce them, that this place rapidly turns into a ghost town of blog links and spam.

I'll do that! Thanks for the advice.

Keep your demo account open. Don't be afraid or ashamed when you have to go back to the drawing board.

Thanks! My entry strategy is K.I.S.S Supply and Demand: Support, Resistance and Trendlines. Buy low, sell high. No indicators, no trying to guess the market, no candlestick patterns as I'm looking from a very zoomed out fast Timeframe and seeing inside the candles already.
