Hey Valdis. I decided to stop sharing because it's private info but I have no problem to show from time to time my P/L to express I'm retail investor and not Journalist or so called expert.
What is the main reason to share P/L? To show others I'm Master in trading? If only Saxo could pay real investor for their openness or at least remove their terrible treshold commision policy. Thanks for your question wish you all the best.

Thank you for replying, Market Predator! You seem to be the only (as far a I can tell) exception here who has managed to recover from initial losses.

I agree with Market Predator. First it's private info and secondly the threshold commission policy is awful. It really really sums up. It can take 10% of your gains, esp. when trading in 10.000 - 15.000 or 20.000 quantities (Euro/Dollar).

Justme, I found that it's highly unprofitable to hold any FX spot positions for any extended period of time due to the overnight interest they charge by moving your entry price. I switched to FX CFD's, although there is a limited number of currency pairs available. And I also switched to trading commodities instead of forex market.
