    Basically my statistical analysis helped me figure out that on days without major economic news the pound falls about 70% of its high for the day against the dollar. This is demonstrated for the past 15 years.

    So I put in a trade and I was right!!!

    I made £100 woo

    I sold at 13070 and covered my short at 13030
    I was at £2.5 per point

    Trading randomly isn't sustainable

    You have to have a sustainable strategy that is positively expectant without significant draw down

    My point being that I doubt you have such a strategy or the emotional and psychology stability to execute it properly.

    Profit of nearly £2000 in the last year from a once here-and-there thing, total losses of £0... but nah, I probably don't possess the mental capacity to carry it off, right? Yeah, enjoy your £100
