Week 4 - Fri- Current Equity: $563.75

Hi everyone:

This week was the beginning of a long year, one that should be very exciting for the watchers of the Infiniteyield Forex Challenge.

The dollar is being buffeted and is charging back and forth energetically enough to test just about any trader's mettle. This action inevitably turns into trending action and we shall try to make the best of it when it comes.

We got to start off the year with 7 consecutive losses. From such a start, it can only get better. It was good that our position size was reduced due to holiday issues. Next week will be full position sizing again.

On to what happened this week-
