Have 5 profitable trading days in a row.

Hello Silver Bees:  It has taken me awhile to accomplish this task for Silver #1. Don't make the mistake I made! The 5 profitqable trades must be accomplished starting on Sunday or Monday, then continue Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I also used the "Pips Today Count" to determine my daily count which caused me to misjudge my positive count and causing me to start over. I recommend that you keep your own count and use the GMT. 

I am so happy being involved in the ApiaryFund.  I have learned a lot..

Thank You,

Keep up the good work. Silver was by far the hardest of all the levels for me.

Does this requirement include "no losing trades" like the Bronze 3 Profitable days in a row one did? Never understood that one but managed.

Would you elaborate on this part of your post, please?

I also used the "Pips Today Count" to determine my daily count which caused me to misjudge my positive count and causing me to start over.

Much appreciated!

No, it only requires 5 profitable days in a row. Losing trades don't count against you, as long as you can recover. Something to keep in mind: positive pips doesn't necessarily mean a profitable day. Use the daily return %. If it's green, you're in profit (even if it's a green 0.00%). I did it by getting that sucker green, and then immediately getting out of that account for the day and practicing in another demo account.

Silver I and II are tough. If you made it to Silver, your chances of making it to funding were greatly increased. If you make it to Gold, your chances increase that much more. Silver was the hardest level for me. Until Gold II, that is...

Great advice on using the Daily Return % and not pips on the 5 profitable days in a row task . That slipped me up a couple of times. I'm now squeaking out the 5 profitable days in a row as you did. Just profitable on the day and I stop trading until the GMT clock passes midnight. 2 more profitable days to go.

Also. I blasted thru all the other Silver 2 day-trading tasks pretty fast as there was a few days of a strong trending market. After that I struggled a bit trying to change my habits as the was market hitting the summer slow period. Important lesson I learned is to know what type of market the overall market is, when setting up trades.

While the "daily return" provides a good clue to the day's profitability.
The percentage is not net of cost. This is especially important for scalpers,
Scalpers can easily have +.60% and not make a nickel.

I have started using the last 100 trades profit which is the top line in the order's history, this figure is less the costs.
IE what it is when starting a trading session and during the session, which way are the dollars going.
