One of those days today……my computer gave me all the problems I could handle and some, just froze up at the most opportune moments, meaning that some of the results are taken from Betfair SP, and not two minutes from the off, but I don’t think the facts have been altered too greatly

Thursday 26th March

A truely disasterous day for Tufxp today, definitely the worst day that I think I’ve had in the last year. It had to happen at some point though I suppose. The markets were moving sideways all day without any definite trend. Would have been better to have the day off… although I’m still in profit on the week!

20 pips on GBPUSD this morning:

A loser on the EURGBP:

And for the first time, another loser on the GBPUSD:

Then another loser on the EURUSD, ouch!

Here we go again:

But then at last a winner:

So 80 pips down on the day. As I said I think this is the worst day I’ve ever had with Tufxp BUT let’s not get disheartened… we had a 100 pip winning day on Tuesday and we’re still £400 up on the week and still averaging over £1000 a week for the whole year.

I won’t be trading tomorrow as I’m off to Paris for a couple of days shopping with the missus. That darn Eurostar has mean’t it’s literally quicker for me to get to Paris than it is to drive up to see my folks in Manchester! And doesn’t the wife know it!

I will however look through the charts on Sunday and report any qualifying trades that I see.

Au revoir.

20 pips after a two hour trade on the EURGBP, this would also have been a winner had you entered just after 9am:

Then a loser on the GBPUSD:

Then a winner on the EURGBP:

I had a go at setting the stops and limit’s to the candle opening price today although on the first trade I forgot to tick the limit box so had to close the trade manually. I got 12.7 pips though so I made an extra seven quid. The second trade I must have made slightly less because I ended up 24.2 pips up on the day.

A winner on the GBPUSD this morning:

And a winner on the EURUSD:

Back onto the GBPUSD and if entered at the TESS entry point this was a winner going 21 pips into profit but if you add a few pips for the spread then this was a loser:

A winner on the EURUSD:

And then another:

Monday 23rd March

Just to remind those that asked, I didn’t trade last Friday as it’s one of the system rules. Instead I spent the time familiarising myself with Capital Spreads. I will use the system with Capital Spreads from now on as their spread is smaller on the FTSE100 which makes a difference when you are only scalping 12 pips (£10 a trade if betting at £10 a pip!). I also have to use CS with another trading program that I will be blogging shortly. It’s certainly not as easy to use as IG, and seems a bit clunky in comparison, but it doesn’t take long to get the hang of it.

One thing I did notice as I re-read the manual is that I’m not actually doing anything different to what I was doing in IG. In IG, when you open a trade ticket, you can input that you want a 15 pip stop and a 12 pip limit and how much you want per pip and then click the buy or sell button and you will enter the trade and the stop and limit will be automatically set. With Capital Spreads all you can do is enter the trade without setting the stops and limit’s, then you have to set the stops and limit’s whilst in the trade, but you are still setting the stops and limit’s at 15 pips and 12 pips away from your actual entry point, the same as with IG index. This isn’t a problem for the FTSE100 as it moves a lot slower than the currency markets but I can imagine it would be a lot trickier trading currencies with Capital Spreads.

Anyway, I went back over the FAQ’s in the members website and it advises that the stops and limit’s are set based on the entry price of the candlestick we are entering on, not the entry price you get. This will mean that if you get in slightly late, you could win less than the 12 pips if it’s already moved in the right direction, but it could also mean you get slightly more if the market has retraced slightly before you got in.

Monday took ages to get a qualifying trade, and it wasn’t until after midday that the first opportunity arose but it was a winner followed quickly by another so I was still finished by lunch time.
