"what flavour is it?""well it's... seabird flavour, do you want some or not?"While an albatross used to be good luck before some idiot killed it, it is better known as a bad luck icon. It seems that my trading style has upgraded from magic 8 ball to albatross! I have my own homework charts and review them before I dive in but it seems that I am predicting 24hrs ahead. Currently I am a few thousand pips down over the past couple of months since I started trading, so my advice is to slow the roll, keep checking the data and if you spot a pattern like my 24hrs, trust your gut that it is going to continue. I've stopped trading and am now watching the pattern to see if my predictions come true, hopefully albatross will soon be shamrock and I will make those pips back up over time.
