I have never seen an IT department working like we wanted to run it. Never.

The best IT department I have personally seen are decentralized ones who bet on the people inside their organization and not in process or "management theory".

AlphaGoZero (1) was the first Robot which could learn to play "Go" without historical data. In Fact, AlphaGoZero did not play from "scratch" but was playing against AlphaGo, against on another robot.

Like the child who learns to play football by learning the codes and imitating the adult, the robot was learning by reinforcement: by the feedbacks of another robot.

You remember yesterday. I took 2 positions of 0.10 each.

First to be honest with you, I made a "double click" and i did not really want to open 2 positions....in Metratrader 4, when you click on the trade, you are not opening the box to modify the order, what i wanted to do to modify StopLoss, but open a box to open a new trade. 

I made a terrible mistake with the stop loss.

Lesson #5 -I made 40 USD with my first trade but I am not happy.

Let’s go back yesterday. After a quick setup, we took the decision to open LONG (means BUYING) in USD/CHF with a clear trend in H4 « replicated » in H1. TakeProfit was set to 66 pips, StopLoss, 100

Posted on: Tue, 04/10/2018 - 22:34 By: Pierre Jean Duvivier

We see a lot of comments about Live and Demo account.

Being a beginner, a demo account is the best way to start. No doubt.

Before to go live, you will need to repeat your trading plan, be sure that you are computing right the lot size, entering at the good moment and exiting right. 

The money management needs to be perfectly understood: you need to survive first.

No matter that Live account will be different - it will be -, it's only a training.
