100 trades

Following a suggestion from one of my trading buddies, I'm going to list 100 trades that will be posted here and the result: win, lose or breakeven ... and why I took the trade.

YOU ARE FOLLOWING MY 100 TRADES JOURNAL

So, following a suggestion from one of my trading buddies, I am putting together my 100 trades journal. I shall list the currency pair, the result, the number of pips caught and the reason why I took the trade. Now, I understand that it might seem a bit weird that I should start this on Monday 19th October 2020 - why not wait until the beginning of November? Well money likes action... and I'm just going to get this 100 trades journal started and see how we get on.

Now, here's the thing - the way I trade, it won't just be one trade per day, so you won't have to follow this for 100 days! I might place 2 or 3 trades one day and then 5 or 6 trades another day or 10 to 15 trades another day, so, in theory, it could be completed in a week... but only time will tell.

I wrote this on Sunday 18th October, not realising I was not going to feel on top form on Monday 19th October - so I didn't actually get started on my 100 trades journal until Tuesday 20th October. (Oh well - a day late but I still got it started). 
100 Trades Journal... nearly complete!!!
97 TRADES

DAY ONE

TRADE 01 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 20/10/2020 09:40
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 8

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

I entered this trade based on thinking that the swing high had appeared with a "slight" break of structure. However, price moved up creating a new swing high but I held this position - it hit 40 pips drawdown but I was confident it would come back... and come back it did (and more). 

TRADE 02 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 20/10/2020 09:44
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 12

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

As above - and as price moved up, I thought I would place another Sell position

TRADE 03 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 20/10/2020 09:47
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 13

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

As above - price moved up again and as this was near the previous high, I thought I would place another Sell position.

TRADE 04 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 20/10/2020 10:01
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 23

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

Price moved up yet again with a sudden push, however, this exceeded the previous high. I was watching the new high form and didn't quite get the peak with another sell.

TRADE 05 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 20/10/2020 10:36
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 18

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

I continued to watch ... the new swing high hit 1.84396 and I entered a sell at 1.84361. This was moving nicely downward but at around 11:05, there was a push up, which hit my trailing stop loss, so I was closed out at 18 pips profit. If I remember correctly, this had got to around 34 pips in profit at one point.

TRADE 06 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 20/10/2020 14:45
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 5

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

The Stochastic was in the extreme on the M5 and getting close to the extreme on the M15 - it was already pointing down on the H1, so I placed a sell position and then stacked the positions.

TRADE 07 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 21/10/2020 09:47
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 24

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

Following on from yesterday's trades, price had move up to a decent position again and whilst the H1 scan seems to have disappeared, it is still on the H4. However, it appears to be consolidating in a channel currently.

DATE: 21/10/2020 10:35
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 19

CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 15

DATE: 21/10/2020 12:56
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 9

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

A quick 9 pip scalp whilst tucking into a Steak Slice LOL! Price had again moved up to the top of the channel and as I was in the middle of having a bite to eat, I was hoping for 10 but by the time I hit the button to close the trade, 9 was what I got. Which is fine because it rounds my tally up to 200 pips

TRADE 14 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 21/10/2020 13:18
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 5

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

Price up to the top of the channel... again! So I jumped in for another scalp to sell

TRADE 15 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 21/10/2020 13:25
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 15

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

Price pushed up so I placed another sell to scalp some pips. I should have left this to run a bit further but it kept bouncing around, but it did eventually continue down and I could have captured a further 20 pips... but better safe than sorry.

TRADE 16 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 21/10/2020 14:32
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 10

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

Again price pushed to the top of the channel and so I placed a sell grabbing 10 pips fairly quickly.

TRADE 17 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 21/10/2020 15:03
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 2

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

A sudden price spike pushed price upwards and out of the channel. I jumped in for a sell, went in to some drawdown but eventually closed this at 2 pips profit.

DATE: 21/10/2020 15:04
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD

As above - as I hit drawdown on the trade above, I placed another sell position 

TRADE 19 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 21/10/2020 15:04
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 22

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

Again - price pushing up further but still confident it wasn't going to stay up there, so added another sell position.

TRADE 20 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 21/10/2020 15:47
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 14

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

Watching these levels of price movement on GBPAUD has been a lot of fun! Just darting in and catching handfuls of pips. 

TRADE 21 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 21/10/2020 17:17
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 12

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

I saw another opportunity to catch some pips as price had pushed up to a resistance level. I had captured 148 pips so far today, so I set my profit level at 12 pips to round up to 160 pips. There could be more to be had - but I've taken enough today.  It took 5 minutes to achieve.
I've got to be careful because I need to remain disciplined and focused on this 100 Trades Journal. So far I have been winning and a loss will be inevitable at some point. I will "embrace the loss" and move on... but things are going well so far... and now I've just jinxed myself LOL...

TOTAL PIPS FOR DAY 2 IS: 160 

Wednesday 21/10/2020

DAY THREE

At the time of writing (12:33 22/10/2020) I am yet to place a trade. I've been watching GBPAUD - as I've had so much success with it so far - and I didn't get up early enough to catch a decent move down - so I've been looking for another opportunity. There has been GBP news this morning, which didn't have a huge impact but I didn't feel confident or comfortable in entering into any trade set ups as yet. I'm still on the look out for a good opportunity to jump in, so hopefully I will get trade number 22 underway soon. 

TRADE 22 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 22/10/2020 16:39
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: LOSS
NUMBER OF PIPS: -2

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

I saw that the Stochastic was in the extreme on the M5, M15 and H1, so was anticipating a push up in price. Unfortunately, I didn't get my entry quite right and ended up closing this at a small loss of 2 pips. HIT MY FIRST LOSS (albeit small) 

TRADE 23 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 22/10/2020 16:41
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 5

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

As above, price dropped a touch, so I placed another buy position. Over the last two days I have been selling GBPAUD - but as I felt I had to get something out of the market today, I placed a buy based on the level and the Stochastic. Not comfortable with it though.

TRADE 24 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 22/10/2020 16:43
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 11

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

As above, price dropped further, so I placed another buy position. I wasn't hugely comfortable with this - BUT - I sort of felt the pressure to get some trades in today. Luckily - this one (and the one above) closed in blue (positive) and positive pips overall for the day - although not many.
So this might be my lot for today. I'll be running a live session at 19:30 UK time, if any opportunities arise then... I might take them. I'll have to be honest with you - I didn't really feel it today. And maybe I should have switched currency pairs to add a touch of variety to the mix. The thing is, I had enjoyed trading GBPAUD over the last few days - and I still think it's got a lot to give but I just didn't like the way it was moving today. That may be a personal thing and I feel annoyed with myself for getting into some trades "just for the sake of it" - because that's not how I roll. :( 

TOTAL PIPS FOR DAY 3 IS: 14 

Thursday 22/10/2020

DAY FOUR

TRADE 25 OF 100 TRADES

DATE: 23/10/2020 10:29
CURRENCY PAIR: NZDUSD
RESULT: LOSS
NUMBER OF PIPS: -2

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

I was expecting a downward price movement, and I had been in profit for a short while (but not a huge profit). I ended up closing this at a small loss of 2 pips but if I had held on for longer, it would have been in profit again but the trades below are my reasons for closing this early.

DATE: 23/10/2020 10:37
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN

Back on form... :) Earlier today, I was being interviewed by one of my fellow trading buddies and wasn't actually keeping an eye on my trades - as that would be rude. As part of the interview, I was discussing certain price levels and key support and resistance levels and the push upwards from GBPAUD and GBPNZD hadn't happened during the interview. We wrapped up the interview and said our goodbyes and I then checked my phone for the status of my trades - only to find that all but 2 had closed in profit. 

Of the last two open trades, one was at a decent profit level and the other was at -2 pips (NZDUSD). Having seen that the others had rewarded me so very nicely during the interview, I decided to close that position at a small loss - but I could have held it until it hit profit, which it did eventually (I saw others in our trading community had captured around 30 pips from the same move). Not a biggie though, 181 profitable pips is not to be sniffed at. 

TOTAL PIPS FOR DAY 4 IS: 181

RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 11

I was watching the Stochastic and could see a potential push up in price coming... except it pushed down. I ended up holding the position over the weekend and when the markets opened on Sunday evening, within 20 minutes my target was hit

CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD

NUMBER OF PIPS: 10

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

Price pulled down to a level that, when considering where the Stochastic was on the M5 and M15, seemed like a good place to get in for a buy.

DATE: 26/10/2020 17:30
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 20

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

STACKED POSITION AS ABOVE
Having looked at the charts, it looked like there was plenty of excellent opportunities with GBPAUD today. I normally like to observe on a Monday morning as the markets "warm up" rather than diving in to trades. As you can see from my results today, my trades were executed mid-afternoon and late afternoon. I was also considering getting in for another buy as price is in a good spot again but I think I'll leave it until tomorrow. 

I have said many times that I don't sleep well with trades running overnight - and I prefer my sleep! I'm happy to take a look again in the morning and see where price is from there. And I'm almost half way through my 100 Trades Journal completing trade number 45 today. Still only 2 trades closed at a small loss of 2 pips each, but sadly that affected my win rate. Let's be realistic though - it's creeping up and is back at 96% (okay I've rounded it up because it should be 95.555555) but it will never be 100%. I'm pleased with my results so far and mainly from just one currency pair.

TOTAL PIPS FOR DAY 6 IS: 71 

Monday 26/10/2020

Price up to a higher level with Stochastic up high again on M5, M15 and H1, so I jumped in for a sell. It was teasing for a while but finally moved and I closed at the 16 pip profit target just to round my pip count for the day to 100!

CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 30

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

Once again watching for price against levels of S&R and checking the Stochastic on M5, M15 and H1, I took a buy up to the next level and closed at 30 pips even though it pushed through the next level a little - banked the profit!
I'm a little bit gutted as I should have let this one run. I entered the trade for a buy at the circled point and I got out at around 30 pips - but it just kept going and is now 90 pips up from where I got in... Marked that one up to not just closing out when I see the Stochastic in the extreme at the top end. Profit is still profit... [EDIT: This ended up moving just shy of 200 pips from my entry in the morning]

DAY NINE

TRADE 65 0F 100 TRADES

DATE: 29/10/2020 10:11
CURRENCY PAIR: GBPAUD
RESULT: WIN
NUMBER OF PIPS: 66

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

Price was pushing up towards another level of support and resistance, so I continued to watch how it would react. The Stochastic was up in the extreme on the M5, M15 and approaching on the H1 and was also in the extreme on the H4. I waited for the right moment - although didn't quite get the ultimate entry.
Some progress pics of this trade, which also shows how the Stop Loss was trailing the price movement down. One of the tools we have access to automatically activates the Stop Loss once price hits a certain level and then trails the current price. I closed this one at 66 pips for 2 reasons, it was approaching the 50 MA and the Stochastic was starting to push up on the M5. I'll keep an eye out for another opportunity.

REASON FOR ENTERING THE TRADE:

As price had dropped to another level of support and resistance, checking the Stochastic and it was in the extreme on the M5 and M15 and low on the H1, I entered for a buy with a take profit target of 30 pips. It took its sweet time but it got there.
