11/1 First Trade since USA Trip

Hello guys, it's been awhile since I last updated my blog. The reason for this long disappearance is that I went to United States for a work and travel programme. A lot of people are so interested in how I got to the States and I will share my experience and how to get there once I feel like writing. Overall, I had a great time there, meet a lot of awesome people, witness a lot of interesting stuffs and it is also a very memorable experience in my life. 

Anyways, I was at the States for four months and a lot of things changed, a change of lifestyle, a change of standards, a change of environment, and I came home with a bigger goal and a bigger dream.

Last week, I get to meet Marcus, Adeline and another two traders from KL, Shawn and Nee. It was a great week as we get to spend a weekend together, getting updates of our community as I was away for four months and pretty much the syllabus changed a lot. I also feel that the trip to the States kind of grow me into a more mature person as I feel that I see the whole trading profession as something different from before. I realised that I focused too much on entries and exits and forgot about the movement of the market. Marcus kind of shared how he interpret and read the chart which I would say is very valuable and it's like 'study the movement' instead of 'finding an entry'. 

I already feel that I am a better trader than before and I'm certain that I will become a better trader in near future. Anyways, today mark the day of my first A300 win since I got back from the States. The experience of taking this trade was so good as we were already anticipating an entry since 7PM as there was a signal from the Ambuyat levels. 

Notice that the whole trade, entry to exit, took place in less than a minute.
I got back from work and I was with my laptop waiting for an entry. It was a funny one as I entered when I got the confirmation and the price went down so fast that I didn't even had the time to set my 'take profit' as the price hit more than my target which is more than 300 pips so I had to close the trade manually. It was a 340pips profit, and I was in that trade for only about 10 seconds. 

I'm really glad that I'm making progress and I'm excited about what this community and skill can help me get to my dreams.

One last shoutout to Adeline & Marcus, I'm glad to be able to spend time with you guys, and I really  learnt a lot from you guys. Thank you!
