Recently I received a question from a perspective FXCoaching.com customer after he saw the forex signals track record with four consecutive losses of 70, 90, 42 and 99 pips.
His question went like this: “Hello Steven, your overall trade results look good but, for example on week of August 16th 2010, you had four consecutive losses of 70, 90, 42, and 99 pips. Won’t that trigger a margin call or nearly wipe out my account?”
My reply: Whoa! Slow down. I am sorry, but what you’re doing does not even come close to resemble actual trading. Please forgive me, but I’m going to be a little harsh here.

Stop it now and take this business seriously! [Read more…]
