Hi All -
As we know July and August are the two main holiday months and normally the market is not so busy. I noticed some comment today and one of the well known traders here commented July was a lighter trading month - but still did 776 pips - which is an excellent result.
I think it may be wrong to share money results - as we are on all different size capital accounts - but the common results are the Number of winning pips / Largest win / Largest loss / Number of trades etc - with pips counted individually not as lot sizes.- Notice no drawdown size or % capital risked - unless you want to add it
We share our charts ( well some of us do to a degree) we even share are "strats" and methods - how about the main reason for trading - the results?
Please don't look upon it as a "test" or pressure etc etc - in fact I would be quite happy with just 100 pips a month if I was on 100 full lots a pip - BUT - it helps with judging how good some methods might be.
We know we could use identical strats and one trader could still produce say 25% more than another trader - however - its good to get some "ballpark" idea.
All are welcome to comment and its not a contest - so sorry no prize ;-)
Look forward to some figures - and then we can also do if for August if enough are interested.

Excellent result Sir Gissa - I got you full post with a beautiful picture of the castle. However I notice a couple of guys have posted and not got the full contents of the comments.
Sorry about that guys will ask you to try and post again and if no luck try sending to my own page so I can answer etc.
I know Gissa you use special techniques which would be a little too advanced to share openly as they may confuse many traders and you would not be able to read about them in any manual on trading or money management. But still you have put the years in and thought way "outside the box" so you deserve the results of all your hard work and endeavor .
Have a great next week as well ;-))
How was your August trading results FX Street members? Look forward to hearing about both the good and the bad - and whats your plans to improve them?
