Something happened to me over the past few days when I was sick, lying on my deathbed I call my couch. I binge watched so much DareDevil I truly believe superheroes exist; I’m going to constantly watch the shadows from now on.The hallucinations from my medicine didn’t help, but at some point yesterday or Friday night, I felt this overwhelming realization I have yet to make a difference in my family during my adult life. It made me extra sick, well depressed, having realized that. I can’t explain everything, but what it boils down to is that I’m in Europe and they are still back home. At the same time, I felt selfish because it is my life and I need to make my own choices at the end of the day. So, I was left in a pretty empty spot in my head. Meds kicked in, I passed out.
So here I am! Pippinlongstockings coming at you from the heart of Europe. Happy to be here, happy to have you. I’m going to be documenting my newbie FX journey as I go from my demo accounts to a real life money account. It’s going to be a big step so this blog is going to be a help one day down the line.
But why a blog you ask? Here’s a superrr funny story. Two nights ago, I entered a USD/JPY sell position a bit earlier than I should have, but since my criteria for my strategy allows such a big stop loss and the way the markets were reacting, I read it as a trend reversal. After a few hours, I was +39 and on top of the world. “Should I exit and just take the pips? Na, stay in, you’re super smart Pippin! True, true!” was literally going through my head. So what happened a few hours later? BOOM, -56! Sick bro. Oh, that’s not funny at all. Actually, it’s sort of depressing now that my dreams are ruined forever.
I didn’t understand how an almost -120 pip swing could happen so quickly. Granted trading the Yen will always bring crazy swings, but why poor ole’ me in such a short period of time.
That’s the moment I said, I need a blog along with my trade journal for future reference. So here we are.
I’ll post other things along with FX to jazz your life up if you decide to follow me.
