These are the charts and trades that I saw (early US session) utilizing the strategies discussed in the EURUSD Day Trading Course.
Charts are posted daily on Twitter, and every month I post a bunch of charts on this site (like this article) in the Forex Trades & Analysis section (where you can now find thousands of historic trades with charts).
Here are charts with examples of the trades over the last month. Some days are missing if I didn’t trade. Coaching has been taking up much more of my time recently which has been the main reason for missing some of my own trading sessions.
In each chart, there’s a reference to “R”. Such as -1R or +2.5R. I risk 1% of my account on each trade, so R for me is 1%.
-1R is -1%.
+2.5R is +2.5% on the account.
Add these up to get the total for the day.
R is a way to express risk and reward regardless of account size.

Most days over the last month provided enough opportunity to grab a couple R, with some flat days thrown in there as well. Overall, trading conditions have been decent, but I would say I’m seeing fewer trading opportunities than a few months ago. Conditions are always changing and it is our job to continually adapt to them (see tool below).

Day Trading Practice Tool I’m Using
I have included another amazing tool in my trading arsenal. It allows me to trade 21 years of historical forex charts as if they were live (any time: days, nights, weekends).
Download tick-by-tick high-quality data, and then replay it. Select a day and place trades, just like it was live. Speed up or slow down the speed of candles forming. Rewind to fine-tune your entries or exits.
Doing extra practice sessions means improving quicker. It also means you can practice for different types of market conditions. If daily movement is dropping or low, go back and practice on low movement times in the past. If daily movement is high or spiking, practice periods in the past where the same thing was happening. This will help you adapt and get used to trading in all different types of conditions.
Here’s the link to the software I’m using: use coupon code TRADETHATSWING10 to get 10% off.
And check out the video to see how it works.
If you decide to get the software, the article/video Setting Up Forex Tester shows you how to get everything up and running.
