    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for your support. I think I would just like to clarify a few things:

    1. I am just an ordinary person like all of you, except I have been in Forex for long enough to know what works and what doesn't. I still have a day job and it has been exhausting in the last week trying to work and monitor trades all the time, and my wife's getting upset that I haven't been able to spend time with the family. Hence my decision to stop the manual trades signal.

    2. I will still take some manual trades every now and then on my manual trades account, as I would also like to see if my strategy can be successful in the long term. However the trades will be less frequent and less closely managed. I generally prefer to set SL to BE once a trade is in 10-15 pips of profit, but that will not be possible to achieve all the time with my current busy life.

    3. For those who still have active subscriptions, you will still get some trades until the end of the trial period. I hope we can make a bit more profit before then.

    4. I would definitely consider offering the manual trade signals again if I can manage to quit my day job. But I am not sure when or whether it will ever happen. At the moment I feel providing a manual signal is not really something I can keep up with in the long term, and I don't want to offer my manual trades if they are less optimally managed than how I would have preferred...

    5. For those who wonder how I identify the trades, I simply look at the trades from SFE Price Action, SFE Night Scalper and SteadyCapture, but wait for their trades to be in some drawdown to offer me a better risk / reward ratio, before I take the trades. Because each of the strategies has proven themselves to have a slight edge over the market, improving the risk / reward ratio on their trades should be even more profitable in the long term - or at least that's what I believe. I hope you guys will have some success at manual trading too.

      Hey Jimmy, is there a way you can perform your manual trading as per your own account? The idea isn't for you to make 10% a month for us but to achieve as close to your long term results as possible. If you're alrdy going to make your own manual trades, is there a way we can still copy it? You don't have to do it every time or evaluate every trade your EAs make.
      My opinion let us know alright!

It looks like SFE PA is going to have a good day with the breakout. Perhaps some of you can manually place some of the SFE PA�s trades and go for some profit. Good luck!
              Thanks so much Jimmy!! You could copy the manual account to your main account and separate the manual from your combined but yet receive the manual for your combined acc.
              Actually what I meant was exactly what you've described in the quoted text! You don't have to trade the market 24/7! That's what the ea is for, I think your family time is crucial and honestly, all the money in the world can't buy you more time with them when it comes down to it. But I'm the kind that would be more than happy if you place like 1 trade a month HAHAHA so you can spend time with your family yet not focus too much on the manual trading. It's kind of like an add on service

Well if you don�t mind that then you can just stick around and keep the subscription going...I just don�t want people to stay subscribed with the expectation that I will be trading all the time, and actively managing every trade.
                      AWESOME! So you'll still be trading the signal account is that right?I honestly don't care if you don't open a trade at all Haha I'll resub to your account now! I had cancelled it because I thought you were going to close it

                                Thanks for keeping the signal open, Jimmy. I'm fine with whatever sporadic trades you happen to make. Family first!
