    FXCM Raw Spread Pricing

    Did anyone else see that starting this Friday FXCM will be changing to a new pricing model? Their spreads will be the raw spreads that they get from their liquidity providers and they will then charge commission instead as their only form of making money. I think this is really cool and I am...

    What Lesson You Learned In Trading Brought The Most Return

    I sure hope so, sometimes it can be hard to tell if you are actually progressing as a trader or getting lucky, but I just keep on trucking. It also doesn't help that I accidentally left an order in the market and got entered into a trade unknowingly while I was on a 2 week vacation. If only the...

    What Lesson You Learned In Trading Brought The Most Return

    I don't know if I can really answer this question yet, but I am going to have to say stop raids. Learning how manipulative this market is and how they work and how I can take advantage of them has helped my discipline because it makes me wait for something significant to happen (stops getting...

    Inner Circle Trader Notes

    No problem, here is something else that trader's might find useful. I modified ICT's "Wealth Building" spreadsheet so that it is a little more user friendly. All you have to do is input your account balance, desired monthly return, risk % per trade, and stop loss you will be using and it will...

    Inner Circle Trader Notes

    The notes get better in the more recent video releases as my knowledge of ICT's material continues to grow. This allows me to create short, concise sentences that should be easy to understand instead of copying exactly what he says in the video.

    Slug Short-Term Trading Journal

    That's a good point Froxx, I might have been looking back too far for order blocks so in reality the most recent price swing up didn't have a good order block. I have seen him highlight old ones in videos just not sure if they had been cleared out already. I'll have to write that in my notes and...

    It is a roth IRA, my custodial firm is AdvantaIRA which is where I setup the roth IRA account (http://www.advantaira.com/) and then I trade Forex through an account that they setup for me at FXCM. The fee for the account is $299 a year and I think the minimum deposit depends on the broker. I...

    Slug Short-Term Trading Journal

    I have opened a Forex IRA account like ICT suggested in his Poor Man's Plan to Progress webinar. It's really nice that I can trade that account and not have to worry about paying taxes on my gains and I will not be tempted to take any money out of the account until I am 59 1/2. I am 25 right now...

    ICT Homework Thread May 25th-30th

    I don't know if I have a good answer that will satisfy your question other than what I have already said, but I would put it this way: Buying London open in Fiber today was like trying to catch a falling knife. If you are expecting a retracement, then I would sit on my hands until I got that...
