I graduated college as a double major with a BS in both Finance and Economics. I worked for Merrill Lynch, Citicorp/Citibank and a few other local banks as a broker. I finally got out of sales and migrated to a financial analyst for a few years until I finally found my way to the promised land of Information Technology. I went to graduate school work for a large company followed by a start-up then some government work after the .com bust and am currently at another start-up. Bottom line, I have no time to focus on trading or making it a living.
Ok a few years back (2003-2004) I tested a bunch of signal providers to â€“ bottom line â€“ no avail. Now, I know some people will say you didnâ€™t follow them long enough or you werenâ€™t capitalized properly. Point taken, but again for me they all didnâ€™t work. Whether they sent bad signals or had bad timing at 3:30 in the morning they just didnâ€™t work out.
In 2005 I tried the 5 minute forex system from Beau Diamond – but that was another system that just didnâ€™t work. Since that time many folks have had complaints about the system and he his no longer around to post the pivot point or trigger value â€“ whatever the term wasâ€¦
After that, I played around with my own system for a few months with Oanda. No matter how simple or complex I made the systems they all started out working but in the end just failed to work.
I will try and continue to update this blog and let you know how my new attempt at forex is coming along.
Forex Signal Provider Journal – I have lost money in the past trusting forex providers but this time I’m testing out FX-AUTO (FXDD Auto) – an automated trading platform; and FX Guru (FXGURU) – a real forex money manager to see how these guys perform with real money. Both accounts are tracked everyday and results are posted.
