This is Stage 1. I've been attempting to type my thoughts up on this, for the FXGears' crowd, for several days. I think this is the type of Journal that Jack really wants: this is focused as much on Psychology as the technicals of trading. So, some background to start: - This will be mostly USD-JPY Trades. - Yes, ICT's hatred of the pair is apt. It's a nutty beast. - I'll have some GBP-USD trades in December, more than likely. - I plan to update it weekly on what I was looking at, what I took, *why* and my physical state going into the trades. - My physical state sets my mental state, and it directly effects my trading. The background, and what makes this a little different, is that I'm very different. I'm a recovering cripple. And everything that goes along with that. The rebuilding process is still going, and will for several years. That's the compounded aspect to all of this. My sleep schedule (as anyone in chat will know) is a mess, quite a lot of the time. There's only so much that can be done about that at the moment, so I simply deal with things as they happen. I have a habit of attempting to go counter-trend when I'm tired, so I simply do not trade when I'm tired. I miss plenty of trades, but that's the nature of it all. My long-term goal is to get to 40 pips, per week, per pair I trade. (Net Risk-Adjusted) My Risk-Down Scaling method will be for Stage 2. (Well practiced in Demo) Stage 1 is .5% Risk, per trade. Which, for the current account, is simply $.50 USD. The psychology and the practice of real environment takes precedence over the Monetary amount, for this stage. I'll update what I'm doing mostly on the Weekends or Fridays. We'll see as I go through. This Journal will run through the end of the year.
