Forex Account Update as of 4/30/2012 [Through 10/31/2010]

Posted by The Diatribe Guy on May 2, 2012

Continuing my account updating. You will see that “D-Day (Damaging Day) was on 10/15/2010. Until this time I had committed to a startegy of trying to short gold at its peak even though I was bullish. I had estimated enough pullbacks and corrections that i could do this. I was wrong, and decided to pull out of any and all iffy positions and just move on from there. This ended a period of a couple months in the run-up of gold that really hurt my results, even though I still was positive. Hindsight being 20/20, it was a dumb and unnecessarily risky thing to do. Obviously, I never went back to that, and things since then have been less volatile and less risky, while consistently profitable:
