my trading day ~ monday 27th september 2010

September 27th, 2010

I am back cycling seriously as part of my fitness regime, so this morning I was up and out at 6:30am for a quick 6 mile ride across the fields near my house. Back at 7:30 after a detour to the newsagents, I sat down in my office with some coffee and a couple of [...]

September 26th, 2010

As is the norm nowadays, there is no trading for me today. Instead I spent the day and evening up in London again. I met with some fellow traders for lunch at Jamie Oliver’s 15 restaurant , and in the evening I met up with a guy from Lay The Odds website (at TGI Friday’s [...]

September 26th, 2010

I spent most of the day out at sea, and I eventually arrived home mid-afternoon. The only trading I managed was my “Evening” system (Trade With A Day Job) and I had 3 trades all in all. My first one was entered dead-on 5pm and that lost -15 pips, and my 2nd one (at 5:25pm) [...]

my trading day ~ wednesday 22nd september

September 24th, 2010

I spent the whole day out on the boat (+4 friends), and using a Vodafone 3G dongle on my laptop meant I could still access my emails and trade when I had mobile phone coverage. The signal does get very unreliable once out at sea, but once I am in a marina, it is just [...]

September 24th, 2010

A very lazy start to my ‘working’ week after a dinner party here last night. I did eventually get downstairs by 10am, but I was in no mood for trading. I have a lot of reading to catch up on, so my day was ┬áspent doing that. My “Evening” trade system trade kicked off at [...]

my trading day ~ thursday 16th september 2010

September 16th, 2010

Not a particular early start today – as I a very late night is coming up, I am out with some fellow traders in London tonight. That probably sounds like a very boring evening, but we will probably only talk ‘shop’ for 5% of the 6 hours we will be in the bars and clubs [...]

my trading day ~ wednesday 15th september 2010

September 15th, 2010

I was up at 6:30am this morning, and had a brisk walk to the newsagent for some milk and a few daily newspapers, and was back in my home office by 7am ready to scan the charts. When I scan the charts for a trade, I only have to look at the charts every 30 [...]

my trading day ~ tuesday 14th september 2010

September 14th, 2010

Another fairly early start to my working day – I started with a short (5 mile) cycle ride at 6am, followed by a small breakfast. I was at my desk by 7:30 to watch for trades using my “Any-Time” system I had an entry short a few moments after 8am on the USD/CHF Forex pair, [...]
