Today was a bull day! The day started pretty good with my main account in a positive position overall. Then it started going downhill with dovish FOMC interview, tumbling US Treasury yields and good EZ data. The weakness in USD pushed XAU at 10 days high ($1108) and EUR @ 1.102XX (late July highs). At one time, my day looked really bad with a negative position of $18XX. Nonetheless, I was able to scrape $66 on the main acccount and $50 on the profit account.
I am 2 days behind on my profit payments now.
I’ll just on these positions for now until market takes a turn.
Tomorrow’s a busy EZ data day & it looks like Germany will be posting good numbers on its manufacturing orders for the month of July. I’ll be setting a lower takeprofit price on all open trades that are in a better position so that I can give myself more margin money in case there’s a bigger bull run.
So far, my profit account stands at $424.94. I did two transfers of $200 each on 5th and 6th August. There was not much action in the forex market on Friday, thus no profit was transferred. Hopefully, today I will be able to bring in $400 in profits to cover up for Friday.
In the meanwhile, I have put my profit account to work. Almost 5% ROI so far. I think I will set a takeprofit before going to sleep. And by the way, this does not counts towards the daily target. This is just some extra motivation.
