Another losing day for me yesterday. I’ve come to realise my results will be skewed somewhat by the different staking levels on different markets. I’m staking £3 per pip on everything except US Tech which is a minimum of £10 per pip. This means that I could have plenty of winning trades on other markets, and just one losing trade on US Tech would wipe that out. Conversely of course I could have a number of losing trades and still do well with one winning trade on US Tech.

Ideally I should be trading at £10 a pip on all markets but since I’m using real money, and this is still in test phase, I’m not comfortable doing that.

It’s possible of course to just multiply the profit/loss on the other trades to see what it would be at £10 a pip across the board and this may be something I do at the end of the trial.

Anyhow, I’m almost back to square one:
