My Sorry Excuse for a Trading Journal...

For those of you who have followed my posts on manual support and resistance trading and who were excited with my manual trading journal I have to say : I am sorry. Certainly I had made an effort to put up the file on the FTP and to trade the system manually so that you could all see what I do to trade these S&R levels but certainly I may have disappointed a few people with the lack of description and the overall lack of discipline in which I addressed this journal at first. Truth be told, I have been terribly busy with my other trading duties and getting all the journal stuff done with all the analysis required would have taken me a lot of time I did not have in my hands.

To top that off, I started with a trade on the GBP/USD which I never even finished analyzing. After that I also did not open other trades on that account which I did trade on live accounts. Why ? Well, sadly the facts of life didn't help and I had to format the computer that carried the mt4 instance in which I had the demo account used for the S&R trading so unluckily for me I lost access to that account and therefore I could not place any other trades. I know that some of you are faithful to my website and in no way have I intended to waste your time. If you have visited my website for a while you should know that I always handle my projects seriously and tend to the needs and profitability of my visitors and customers.

Well I sure made a commitment to write a good manual trading journal and I certainly intend to do so. From now on the demo account of the trading journal will be VPS hosted to avoid any computer problems and I intend to write a small note on the journal every Monday as to why I traded or did not trade that week with a detailed explanation of each trade as I had explained before. Obviously the first trade I made will remain on the journal and I will finish its analysis so that we may start with a finished trade. So I invite you to check the trading journal file every week on the ftp and to check the account statement on the lower part of the left hand sidebar. I of course give you my word that it will be kept updated and that we will certainly learn a lot about S&R trading from it.

Again, for all of those who have been looking at a journal file that was not updated, I am sorry, but from now on the journal will be one of my primary concerns related to the website. However if you would like to learn about automated trading system and what can be done to design profitable one please consider buying my ebook on automated trading or subscribing to my weekly newsletter to receive updates and check the live and demo accounts I am running with several expert advisors. I hope you enjoyed the article !
