Ok… Finally got my rebate in to close my month of May 2010.

Well… I still got hit in my Alpari… still my rebate keeps rocking it up.

I guess by now I should say… one should ignore my GoMarket account for the time being. Well.. for reason that I have already clearly mention in my previous post.

So… if I were to only look at my Alpari and FXOpen account. Taking into account only rebate from these account…

It will be as such…

Alpari May 2010

FXOpen May 2010

I must say I was not happy with my Alpari account and corrective action has been taken. So.. .I can only say that every little rebate helps.

Oh…. and of the main contributor to my down side of Forex Bling… which I have taken out of my account. It seems that it does not ‘Bling’ for me any longer. Sigghh… NEXT….

As for my FXOpen account…. My Lovely Megan seems to be making strands. Lovely 10% gain this month. But… I try not to speak too soon. Things could happen. And I hope that all the backtesting results proved that this strategy will hold for as long as it can.

So for the month of May… I am somewhat please. My aim for June will be to see if there is any other strategy I can employ to help recoup or rebuild my ailing Alpari account

Monthly Update ~ April 2010

Well, it is about time I posted my monthly update for April 2010. I was waiting for my cashback return to finally have a good view of my months trading activity.

It seems that CashBackForex is paying out in the 1st week of every month instead of the last week of the month. Anyway… while on their site they did mention that the payout is not the real time reflection of ones daily trade.

Anyhow… here is my performances for April 2010

First the happy note.

I finally got out of the red on my FXOpen account… :)

While I am still struggling on my Alpari account, as long as my total is still on the upside. It’s all good. However, looking at how my March and April is in the red. I had to take some corrective action.

One of it was to start consolidating my account. This is one of the reason why I took down my live account page. I wanted to display myfxbook account to reflect the changes that I have made.

And I have made some changes. So hopefully the page will be up soon.

As for my GoMarket account. I am still struggling trying to get my equity back on the road. It’s going to be long and hard. So while I am not too happy with April, I am not too sad about it either. This is going to be one long journey. Like my Alpari account.

But hopefully… not too long a journey… :)

Even with my month of April taking a hit. My return is not all that bad because of my rebate. So that rebate kind of save my a$$.  And I am not kidding with regards to the rebate that I am getting.

I am currently drafting a report on this rebate strategy because I believe it is a strategy worth looking deeper into.

I will probably publish my report soon. Still doing some proof reading and checking my spelling… :)

So stay tuned…
