Holiday trading

Just accomplished Gold 3. To my dismay market is so sluggish during the holidays. Still have a 5 trade per week minimum to maintain. Only opened and closed 3 for the week of Christmas. Not sure as to how the rest of this week will progress, hopefully better than last week due kicking off a new year. My thoughts for next year, I think I will forgo trading all together for the holidays.  Take a 2 week holiday and return back to work when the bankers do.

Sounds like a solid plan for next year. I was lucky enough to move into Silver 3 over the break so I had plenty of other tasks to work on while the trading was slow. I did want to get some data/metrics on the system I'm trying to refine but that wasn't really possible...or I didn't think the data I was going to get this past week was going to be representative of a normal week of trading. I'll be moving into Gold 1 by the end of this week. Onward and upward!

Congratulations on Gold 3!
I too thought that the holiday period was going to be very sluggish, but yesterday's wild moves in most pairs shows that we have to be careful and use stop losses even when the markets are expected to be quiet.
