Small losers are a great thing...that is my goal...to keep my losers small...they happen and if I can control them, the winners take care of themselves.

entered this trade using scalpers strategy. now I have moved the SL to BE, as the trade has moved to my favour equivalent to 1:1. we have a minor support coming up , see how it goes around this support, if it passed my target is next support level of daily chart. anyway this trade is now risk free.

I usually look for some strong S/R which is in H4 and daily chart. a strong support. if it keep going in my favour, otherwise trailing stop is there holding 100 pips.

OUCH raja...120 pips to b/e...remember as traders we are here to take profits...very seldom does a trade go 500 pips etc. without a pullback of some kind....maybe look to trail a move like that to take some profits at least.

I took a trade on the E/U...got stopped out for 15 then got back in on the next bar and took 25 on 2/3's of the position...holding the last 1/3 for 50 target. Moved my stop to the 1.3080 area for 20 if it comes back and takes me out.

i got my lesson, i couldn't believe but its trading, any thing can happen. so from the next trade i moved SL up and got about 100 pips from those two trades. though I still lost a lot of pips but as u said we should grab something ouit of it. may be next time I go for 1:2 R:R.

Your entries are great...it'll help to have a target in mind...there is always going to be money left on the table..picking tops and bottoms will drive us crazy, but if you can nail your targets over and over...there is nothing to stop you from increasing your lot size.

Keep up the great work and thanks again for sharing with the forum.

thanks Guy. i'm learning a lot of things from u. hope that more people will share their trades as well. by sharing we learn much than trading alone because that way we filter our mistakes and avoid them. this is my biggest weakness, in past I lost a lot of trades because I go for big gain but at the same time I move my Sl to B/E, as soon as trade goes into my favour. so after a hefty profit I lost many time.well i try to change my trading style.
