Monster Scalps With AUDJPY

I've been shamelessly scalping the AUDJPY this week (via Oanda). It may be hard to fathom, at least when you see the numbers, but I'm not entirely happy with my results.

Jun 28: 00.28% NAV+
Jun 29: 06.65% NAV+
Jun 30: 11.66% NAV+

So far this week, if I can hang onto it, I'm up over 19% on my trading account.

Now, you may be wondering why I'm not satisfied with my trading. Basically, I've made too many mistakes. From time to time my discipline is lacking and I jump into a position at what is realistically an unwise entry point.

This keeps me from capitalizing on later opportunities until I've extracted myself from the position foolishly entered. It also subjects me to a lot more stress while I wait out moves on a larger timeframe.

Anyhow, I've decided to quit fooling around, scalp myself a decent stake, and get serious about trading. Now, if I can just work out my discipline issues I'll be set.

Alert: AUDJPY Head And Shoulders?

I've spent most of today scalping the AUDJPY (on the long side).

Jumping up to my 3hr and 4hr charts, as I have two platforms running, I see an upside down head and shoulders.

You may want to take a look at this and see what you think.

Back From A Trading Break

Well, it's been a while since I posted. Things have been hectic, but I did just take a short vacation. No running water. No cell phones. No internet. No trading. There were, however, lakes and fish.

I think I'm ready to do some serious speculation at this point... as long as the market behaves.

Hopefully I'll soon be posting and tweeting up a storm!

We'll see.
