I copy this article from Neil Fuller website. Very interesting article. You can visit the website here

The Habits and Daily Routine of a Successful Price Action Forex Trader

Trading success is a result of discipline, and having a set daily routine is one aspect of being a disciplined forex trader. It is so easy to fall off track and start making emotional mistakes as a trader that you really need to consciously stop this from happening by having a daily routine that you go through every day. A daily routine will add a degree of order and stability to your trading, which is very important to your mindset and thus to your long-term profitability. If you do not currently have a set daily routine for your trading activities than you need to start developing one, trading absolutely cannot be a haphazard endeavor. The more objective you can make every aspect of your interaction with the market, the less likely you will be to commit emotional trading mistakes.

• Limit screen time to a certain period of time and time of day

The first task in the daily routine of a price action trader is to know what times during the day you will be analyzing the market. You will obviously need to work around other responsibilities such as your current job and your family duties. If you find that the only time you have for checking the market is an hour before you go to bed, than you must work with that time period. The most ideal times to analyze the market are around 4-5pm EST, which is the New York closing, and then around 1-2am EST, which is just prior to the European opening. Now if you can’t stay up until 1 or 2am EST, that’s ok, just make sure you analyze the market at the same time each day.

Once you have decided on the time period you have available for market analysis you then will need to decide on how much time you want to devote to scanning for price action trade setups and(or) for monitoring any previous open positions you may have. Limiting your screen time to a specific time allotment is very important to your mindset and hence trading success. Trading off the daily charts is the most stress free and yet profitable time frame to trade off of. Once you become skilled in price action analysis you can scan each currency pair that you trade during your given time period each day. If there is no setup than you move on to the next pair, if you find no setups in any pairs than you are done for the day! Any further analysis beyond this will only hurt your chances at succeeding long term as a forex trader. You will start to over analyze the market and dig up reasons to enter a trade; I promise you this will cause you to lose money over time.

• Follow a Price Action Trading Plan

If you are a price action trader you know what setups you are looking for each day in the market. Since this is the case you should have a written out and clearly defined trading plan of what you are looking for each day during your given time period and allotted time amount. If you do not have a clearly defined and tangible trading plan than you need to get working on this right away. Keeping your trading plan “in your head” doesn’t cut it either, you need to read it, every day. A clearing defined trading plan should include entry parameters, exit parameters, risk management strategy as well as long term goals; these are factors your forex trading plan needs to include at a minimum.

Following an objective trading plan will give you precise setups to look for each day, it will help you focus harder and give you a guide to follow each day while analyzing the market. Market analysis needs to be structured; most traders have no structure to their daily routine which is a result of not having a trading plan. How can you become a structured and thus disciplined trader if you don’t even have a plan for what you are doing? Would a builder build a house without blueprints? No, of course not, it would fall apart, very fast. Yet, almost every person that attempts to become a forex trader approaches the market with no forex trading plan and sense of why one is necessary. Operating in a structured manner in the uncontrollable forex market is simply a necessity to you making money in forex on a regular basis. Luck will only reward you for so long before it punishes you, there is no room for luck in the consistently profitable trader’s vocabulary, simply put; professional traders do not need luck because they have a clearly defined trading plan.

• Keep a trading journal

Keeping a daily trading journal is important for a number of reasons, but not for the reasons you might be expecting. Many trading books and other educational sources will mention trading journals briefly and say that you should write down the parameters of each trade you take so that you can analyze what you did right and what you did wrong. While there is some value in recording this information I feel that it misses the point. Trading success is almost entirely dependent on how well you manage your emotions. The real value that a daily trading journal can provide to you is feedback on how you are feeling each day about your trading activity as well as feedback on your day to day emotional state.

It is very important to right down how you feel before entering a trade and after wards. Write down if you won or lost on the trade and then write down how you are currently feeling. This will do two things; it will give you a task to do right after closing out a trade which will give you time to calm down from a big win or a loss so as to help keep you from jumping back into the market. Also, it will begin to paint a picture of how emotion is tied to trading success. If you are honest in this trading journal about how you are truly feeling before and after a trade you will begin to see solid evidence that the degree to which you are emotional in the market is the degree to which you lose money; there is an inverse relationship between emotion and money in trading forex.

The other helpful feature of keeping a daily trading journal is that you can write down (or type) your daily forex market summary. This will allow you to keep a running tab on market conditions, economic data releases and will generally just make you more aware of what is happening in the market. It is helpful to stay connected to forex price movement each day and to have it take on some context in the broader market picture. If you are going to be away from the market for a few weeks don’t just come back and jump right into a trade. Give yourself a week or so to record daily market summaries so that you can get a feel for the current ebb and flow of price movement, it’s important to stay in tune with the forex market.

• Cleanse your mind and body rather than put extra time into market analysis

As briefly stated earlier, too much time spent analyzing the forex market beyond what you have previously allotted for yourself will usually work against you. A previous article I wrote called “Set and Forget Trading” explains this concept in greater detail. If you find yourself with extra time and you start looking at charts or analyzing economic data outside of your allotted time slot than it’s time for a hobby. Starting working out regularly, any regular exercise will help you focus better on all of your daily life tasks; it will make you feel better both mentally and physically. Time spent exercising is much better than spending extra time analyzing the market; you can control your body and your mind but not the market. If you still have extra time after exercising than read a book that expands your horizons on some topic, it doesn’t have to be trading related, it can be anything, reading exercises your brain and keeps your cognitive wheels greased. Remember that your daily routine is paramount to long term success in the market, don’t underestimate it . Forex Trading is a business and should be treated as such, any successful business operates under strict routine, you should be no different as a forex trader.

Early this month / Late last month,
I was introduced to new forex broker by my friend.

What makes me interested with this broker are:
1. Daily candle starts @ 12/1 pm Malaysia time
2. They provide Gold and Crude oil for trading with spread as low as 50 pips and 2 pips (crude)
3. Lot as small as 0.10 per pips.

Hmmmmmm....... I just don't have time to process all the document required and send it to them (being outstation this month....no time to do that. Even i forget about my account a while when i m working outstation)

apo nak buekkan.....
BUY preference.


Gold is already in BUY position - since 1050.xx. Maybe we will see the 12xx.xx again this year?

Don't follow blindly. Use your eye. Trade what you see. TAYOR.

Sell preference on :

Dont get into the trade blindly. Use your eyes to determine best area to do SELL or if you find it's going to U-Turn.... follow the majority.

Happy trading
