The market was behaving very strangely at the beginning of the week. We had a rough start. Two trades left open from the prior week gave us a big loss as they hit their stop loss. A few trades opened early in the week also hit their stops, and added to the pain. The lesson here is that losses are a part of trading. No risk, no gain, as I like to repeat to the point that I probably bore some of you, but it’s true. I guess another lesson is that we here at Special FX Academy don’t sweep the dirt under the carpet. When we lose, we tell you.
Well, there’s really no way to hide it, since we operate this trading room live. But I’ve seen other “academies” that never have a losing trade. Sorry, I mean, they never admit to a losing trade. That’s not trading, that’s marketing, and of a particularly nasty and unethical variety. With us, you get the real deal. As traders we will have losses. And we deal with them.
But enough about that. After that rough start to the week, we not only recovered from the loss, but we actually ended the week profitable. Because that’s how real traders roll. The month of May is now comfortably carrying an overall profit exceeding 12%, and we’ve a week yet to go before the month is closed. And you can do it with us, day in and day out. What are you waiting for?
- 19 trades closed, 12 wins, 7 losses
- 63.16% Win Ratio for the week
- 128.8 pips of net weighted profit for the week
- Account growth of 3.66% for the week
- 0 trades held open through the weekend
And the best thing? We manage to do this while keeping our risk under strict control. Our worst performing week had a drawdown of -1.2%, and our best week exceeded 10%. And you get to see this live. You join our sessions and trade in real time with us. This is the way trading should be, fun, safe*, and ethical. Will we see you next week?
*All trading carries risk. Trading Forex has the potential of losses exceeding your funds. Never trade with money you cannot afford to lose. While we have a stellar record, past performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance and no guarantees are made or implied.
