Forex Trading Journal – Post 16

Number 16!

I am not lost for words but may be lost in the process of forex trading. From where I stand I am not really sure if this is getting boring or if this is just how the process is going to be. This makes me realise that most people are drawn to intraday trading because of the excitement. The very need to hit that buy or sell button every day makes them feel so powerful.

Am I right or wrong, who knows only time will tell. Does this even matter in the long run, because when we are wrong, we have to minimise losses. Personally, I still feel like something is missing. When you are 80% into your journey you can forget about needing to learn each day. Forex trading will take its toll on anyone, and I believe that this game is not for the faint-hearted. In my own little world, there is this need to dive deeper into the world of forex and figure out that last 20%

If anyone is reading this, it would be great if you could recommend a book that I could consume. Forex technical analysis would be a great start 🤣

That is all I have for today, with no new trades and my current trade not moving for the last couple of days I have decided to close in my stop loss. My exit indicator has changed colour which means a possible change in direction 🤷🏾‍♂️. We will see, but for now, I like to be extra careful.

Peace and Love

DISCLAIMER: I am not a professional trader and have a long way to go before I call myself a pro. This is not financial advice, and you should do your own research before trading or look at my positions. All trades are currently made in a demo account.


  • If you are a beginner in FOREX, it may sound condescending but really Currency Trading for Dummies is a good primer. If you’re as self-conscious as I am about carrying around a book that says you’re a dummie, then I can also suggest just checking out every day of your life every article on Their videos on Youtube are helpful too especially from John Kicklighter. Check them out!

    • Thanks for the advice. How long you been trading for?
