So, it's been a while since I last updated this site, partly because I've been too busy and partly because nobody reads it anyway!
Trading has been a real roller coaster this year - not because of the actual market movements but because of the way the market can really mess with a persons mind.
I decided in January this year that I would trade bigger, much bigger, but this is much harder than it sounds. The stress was just too much and I was not prepared to risk money that I had worked so hard to accumulate. I needed to rethink certain parts of my trading strategy.
That's exactly what I did.
Trading is never a static thing, a trader must be fluid just as the market is and he needs to be prepared to admit that his methods need to evolve.
My trading method suited me fine last year but this year, things in my personal life changed and my trading method needed to change to match my new state of mind (yes, your trading method needs to perfectly match your personality or else you will fail).
Things are now on an even keel and trading is superb! I'll begin adding back results as soon as this month is over, but I am roughly in the 10 to 20 percent bracket.
