Q4 2015 Forex Trade Performance Review

Now that I’ve gotten a few days of rest and relaxation over the holidays, I’m in the mood to reminisce about my forex trading performance in the last stretch of 2015. Here are the trade ideas I had:

I was off to a shaky start this quarter and I hesitated to take a bunch of my forex trade ideas that probably might’ve added a few more pips to my total. I managed to catch a couple of nice moves on EUR/AUD and USD/CAD, but I risked too little then failed to press my advantage when I had the chance.

That GBP/AUD trade was pretty heartbreaking for me since I was already up by a good amount but my STA strategy didn’t work out since a reversal followed. Moving forward, I’ll remind myself to be more confident about my trade ideas and try to be more active in making risk management adjustments along the way.

Got any tips on how I could improve my performance? As always, I love getting your feedback on my trading decisions. Hope y’all are enjoying the holidays, too!


Happy time
