A history of live trading calls from 2005

Digging through the archives recently I stumbled over some history from an account I ran at Marketiva (this was them), now not in business after being caught in a business tied to [$6B worth of money laundering](http://www.forbes.com/sites/jonmatonis/2013/05/28/u-s-authorities-close-another-digital-currency-exchange/#600a78d36e53" "target=_blank).

They ran live chat rooms for Forex pairs where I posted trade set ups thinking I had mastered the markets.

At that stage I had traded for 4 years, and it seems I got lucky a fair bit. I do remember plenty of offers to manage people money, which they should forever be thanking me for declining.

The result though looks like a nice system, with a profit factor of 2.34 and a win/loss percentage of 66.66%. Only issue is I have no idea what that system was. Does make you wonder why I switched though.

Here is the 2005 history I found of those calls for November/December 2005, after which I either:

  • Blew up my account
  • Switched brokers
  • Was rolling around naked in piles of money

Further proof that sticking to something that works can be tough.
