Trades for 3-6-09, and weekly total

I ended the week with -.86% in stocks, and +9.89% in forex. I was able to reach my weekly dollar goal in forex this week so hopefully this will keep up, and I’ll be able to eventually trade it for real.

Today went very good, I entered a ½ sized short in CMA this morning and wound up making +2.48% (would have been +4.96% if I had traded a full size). I almost took profits sooner, but the bar on the 10 minute chart was big and red so I held on. Once it looked like it was bottoming I tightened my stop to $12.50, and was triggered right before it went down to hit what was my stopgain at $12.26. No big deal though, I’m very happy with my performance today.

For the Friday post I have an interesting article (click here), and some video clips for you:
