re: some responses to comments, category ‘trading’.

first of all thanks for advice N, at least for an attempt to give an advice. i appreciate your effort. below are some responses.



your comment:

Unlikely, could be Swap charges


nope, nothing to do with swaps here. you probably missed the following: “today i noticed that some currency pairs are vacant (no positions) and some are with wrong polarity.”



your comment:

You may better switch brokers, and while at it the platform as well.

Are you american ? If yes there are some additional rules the broker as to abide.

Btw: trust me, making money in markets is not just math.

And you can also be sure that EVERYTHING has been discovered already, the trick is simply to manage losses, done that properly even if your strategy is simply trowing dice and buy at odd/sell at even numbers.


i am proud to be not american.

“be sure that EVERYTHING has been discovered”? that sounds like a religious conviction, that everything is in the bible, no need to read nor to learn anything else, regardless that “god” had so bad vision he didn’t see farther than 200km (where all the biblical events happened), thought that earth is flat, had so bad memory couldn’t remember back more than 5000 years, and so on.

everything has NOT been discovered, that would be a very arrogant statement by anyone with scientific thinking. in mathematics there are every single week submitted literally thousands of new proofs, collectively around the world. many discoveries, especially in mathematics developed for stock market, are not necessarily made public, so there’s a lot to discover.



your comment:

Im sure this problem can be bypassed easy and very likely even automated with requotes to be filled with smaller but matching orders


that’s true. i haven’t explored all the tools available as i have enough to do. i have also mentioned it in another post. right now i do everything manually with market orders. when i see that it won’t work, i will explore programmable options, beginning perhaps with pending orders, stops, etc. … problem with those is that i can’t see how well and when those orders are executed without being constantly online. so far i prefer to place market orders, oversee their execution, and sleep well or do other things without worrying about my portfolio on forex.



fx: the tide has turned, at last. or i missed some turning tides before.

nice ride today on forex. even as i slept nicely this afternoon, i happened to wake up just on time for a pleasant volatility and to clock back some losses. on mt4 it went with no issues, but on mt5 i missed some of the ride because my market orders just continued being not filled — the prices changed too fast. i kept verifying prices and trying again and again, but i managed to make only about one quarter of the changes in my portfolio from which i expected to, with way lower gains as i saw them at some point. when the bigger ride was already over, perhaps after half an hour of continuously failed attempts, i got my orders filled in the bottom of the price ride. so, i missed quite an opportunity due to constantly rejected orders. because of this issue, trading on smartphone and occasionally on tablet, both with slow internet connection, i imagine it may take way longer than i expected to get into positive balance again and to generate profit. but no hurry for me — no real money at stake, just playing around with math and my formulas.
