This Business Is Tricky

I'm learning. Every day I'm learning.

Some fundamental news came out this morning. That was great, and I got some profits because of it, but at the same time I had limits on a lot of my positions to help ensure that I'd get out of positions and free up margin room.

This means I've left a lot, and I mean a lot, of gains on the table. That's too bad.

In the currency exchange market, finding the right balance between caution and greed is tricky. You really don't want to exclude yourself from massive movements in your favor. At the same time, if there is no massive move, or if it isn't in your favor, you'd had darn well better be protected.
