    I must stop drinking beer while I am trading. I forget about my open trades and all. I am sure I have a couple open now but must think. Not sure.
    Three days ago, I forgot my trades and all and scored big time. Never even knew I had placed them.
    Two days later I had 24% more and all.
    I must now see what I have open quickly. Will let you know.

    That is hilarious. LMAO! Right, alcohol and trading don't mix, but in your case, luck maybe?

    Beer did that for you; yah? Looks like to me you need more beer!...but remember to preset TP to cash in on your alcohol induced amnesia and not place one too many trades that could cause your account to become extinct.

    Very aptly, Cheers on your trade!

    Hmmm, wonder what LSD would do!

    Since then I have made a decision, Trade or drink beer. I have now stopped trading and have a Managed Account now and all.
    Thanks for the advice.
    LSD. What is that. We don't have that here in Africa's Stock Exchange. Lousy Single Stock Derivatives ?

    Sorry for the late reply. I have been out for a while and all.
    No beer futures only wheat and hops and stuff.
    I will let you know when me and my buddies get going again. When we do, Wheat will skyrocket.
    I must add that I am not a trader at all but have been doing good so far. I get signals for free and place them. Then as I said, I made 24% last week and all.
    You won't believe that I made $105.00 Friday nite on 1 trade. Was supposed to get out earlier but my chair fell over by accident and when I woke up an hour later it was way over where I was supposed to close it.
    I have a new chair now.

    Let's see . . . .

    Trade drunk, forget about trades and make profit.

    Fall over and knock yourself out and make more money because this delays your exit.

    This definitely gets my vote for best personal trade journal. :D

    "...my chair fell over by accident and when I woke up an hour later...I made $105.00 Friday nite on 1 trade."

    1 hour "knocked out" and woke up usd105.00 richer!
    Hmmmm, I wonder how much money you would make if you were "knocked out" for 8 hours?? Now, try being "knocked out" for 5 trading days...i.e place a trade, set a greedy TP and don't touch your account for 5 straight trading days.

    I did that when I went on a week's holiday last month. I opened a "Sell" 0.1 lot position on EUR/JPY on 3/Nov/2010 at 114.04 with a "greedy" TP set at 112.14. When I came home on 10/Nov/2010, my TP wa triggered with a profit of usd235.18
    If I had been real "greedy" and left the TP at the extreme low, it would have realized much more profits when EUR/JPY hit 108.41 on 29/Nov/2010.

    But, of course, if we keep checking our opened trades, we would close out the trade when it show a decent profit.

    Anywhere, that son-of-Ra'a is correct. This is indeed one of the best unusual personal trade journal : )

    Well now. That chair got all broken and all and I had to buy a new one. My trade profit was $105.00 and the new chair was $150.00. So not a good deal.
    Expensive, but it comes with seat belts. I can now buckle up for the ride and all. I will not fall over anymore, I think.
    Testing it now with a long on GBP/CHF at 1.5179. Chair doing well so far. Geeze man, whats all those long red stripes doing now suddenly on my long? I will now have to
