Before taking my very first trade setup for 2014, I decided to make a quick review of my trades during the the fourth quarter of last year. Without further ado, here are the numbers!

As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve had fewer than usual trade ideas for the last stretch of 2013 as I got busy with preparations for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Despite that, I think my trade performance in Q4 was better compared to Q3 2013 since I managed to end up with a tiny win overall.

Looking back at my winning trades, I’ve realized that I do tend to perform better with swing setups instead of short-term ones. With that, I will try to focus on longer-term trades for this quarter. Got any tips you’d like to share?

Happy time
