Last month I was given the opportunity to speak at the Forex Trading Conference. I chose to speak about things I wish I’d known when I started trading – my first days of trading. When I sat down to puts some slides together for my 30 minute slot I soon realised that I could in fact speak for days about that subject.

If I get in and it goes against me, I hold the position as I trade with 150-point stops. Once it comes back into profit, I wait and I WAIT for the big move lower and it never comes – so I end up holding the position for longer than I should as it begins its ascent on the way back up.
