LOL!!

If this trading doesn't want to make you scream and wqant to shoot yourself, it will definitely make you laugh! 

 

I placed a sell limit this morning on the EUR/USD with a 15pip SL and a TP of 50, trying to get my 50 done in Silver II, It's been running all day, I get home this evening and I am at 35pips, so I go to the kitchen to clean it up before dinner and I look and what do I see...a blue candle shooting down,  I get closer and noticed my order has closed I'm all excited I look at my pips today FREAKIN 49.50 somehow it closed a .50 pip below the 50!!!!!

 

Well I made 49.50 pips pretty much doing nothing today, except playing golf of course LOL

Probably slippage

Come on Jim...... before you head out to the green, put one more order in - but set your variables for a one pip profit. Make a decent choice and you'll be in Silver III by the 9th hole. I'll save you a seat........... and BTW, you'll probably find Silver III a lot easier than Silver II (At least, I'm finding it easier).

Jim, 49.5 pips and a game of golf! Sounds pretty good to me! I always add a few pips to my targets to cover any slippage. Those type of things sure do try our patience. Hang in there, buddy! (Oh, I think Trader-Gator is right......Silver 3 did seem easier. )

Yeah I talked to support and they said it was probably slippage. Oh well live and learn, and I am right with ya Gator be there soon =)

I'll be adding the extra pip to my code =)

That happens, all the time. It's sometimes better to exit the market before the week-end. Because... "Nobody knows, what's gonna happen tomorrow" :-)
