Hello Everyone.
I just signed up for a lifetime. I hope it's worth it. I have 13+ years clerking/trading on/off the CME floor. I know my charts, trades, technicals and underatand the fundamentals. I just can't seem to get my head on straight. I stay in bad trades, exit good ones. let good trades go bad. Quite a funk I can't seem to kick.
Its just me at home, with no other insight so I'm hoping to get some good information, alternative advice, other tech levels, other traders opinions on similar markets. always interested in learning about new trading strategies.
I mostly trade the YM. the ES sometimes, and then the RTY and NQ.
hopefully Ill find my way around on here but feel free to say hi. id love to get to know a few guys/gals that trade the same markets.

Hi New here! Renko Bar Counter ????


Sorry if this is in the wrong area, but I cant find what I am looking for...

Has anyone found a Bar Counter Indicator for a Uni-Renko Bar for Ninja 8?

There are Range counters out there, but they dont work on Renko Bars. I just want something simple that will show me where my Renko will close at either up or down... Because these Renko have a wick, someone implied it is more difficult to program???? I have no idea how to program but its just simple math...right?

Any help or direction would be much appreciated.

Thanks!!!!
Dave

Welcome! I trade YM and try to record my results in my journal. You can follow if you're interested if what I'm doing day-to-day with real $.

Your troubles sound familiar, but hopefully the community here can help you work through some of that. I have found it to be an invaluable resource in my trading.

Intro

Hi Y’all:
At it since 01 – stocks first – then derivatives, with a flurry of FOREX somewhere in there. Made some, lost a little and so far have not managed to blow up an account. On-again-off-again due to a busy day-job, from which I have cashed my chips. Primary platform is Sierra Charts trading short-term scalps in ES/YM/ZN/ZB/ESTX50/GBL. Would like to learn other markets. My edge(s): Order Flow, intermarket divergence, Crabel’s ORB, with a heavy dose of an old ‘trading educator’ from Austin, TX.

Thank you for having me!

So if I'm going to pour any more blood, sweat, or tears into something, it's going to be trading.

And nothing else.

Hey 4BetTheFarm!

That's a really tough story you tell here, be proud of yourself that you did not give up and are still giving your best to make the most out of your life. You still follow your dreams.

On the other hand, I can sense a lot of emotion in your writing. Determination is good, but keep in mind that in trading you've got to stay cool even after multiple punches in your face and the market screaming "no boy, not today!".

I think you know what I mean, I think you already learned this in Poker and the 2 years trading at 17. Your high determination to succeed and the will to figure out the markets is great, but in front of the screen there is no place for emotion. Try to attach your emotion to the process, be proud of yourself if you have sticked to your rules and don't give a damn if you get beaten up 4 times in a row but the setup was great.

You got the fire, but in front of the screen keep that fire controlled and walk that path like a professional.

Hope with this post I could help a little on your path to become a professional trader.

Tip


4BetTheFarm View Post

//snip

With only $6, liquid, to my name, I don't care.
...
If it takes me another TEN YEARS of living with my mother, rent-free, to figure out how to trade, then it will take me ten years of living with my mother, rent-free, to figure out how to trade.

I don't want to do anything else for money. Trade for a living, or face death. All or nothing.

Thank you for sharing.

If I can give 1 tip, from somebody who has been around the block before.
I admire your tenacity with it, but living in the all or nothing situation is dangerous.
The more you are invested in it financially the more emotion is invested in it,
and you will constantly get the wild swings.

Put yourself in a position that you choose to trade, not "my life is dependent on it".
Which could mean taking a stable job or having some stable income.
Without stability it will be a very difficult journey and it does not have to be.

This post is primarily for myself. I hope to one day look back and reminisce.


- Price action, SIM trading, screen time. I think I finally found the golden nuggets in a pile of dog vomit.

- I have become obsessed with figuring out how to consistently trade for a profit.


I don't want to do anything else for money. Trade for a living, or face death. All or nothing.

And nothing else.


Hey, I just read your post... I suggest you to take it really easy. For what your write, it seems as though your are really good in "pumping your ego" and motivate yourself. This is great for any entrepreneurial ventures, for sales, for motivational speaking etc. However don't try to apply this to trading.
Trading is about taking rationale decisions.

Then you say you found the "holy grail", don't be naive... nowadays you are competing against algorithms and robots that are programmed by brilliant minds. You have no formal education, don't believe that you are a genius and if you are a genius, don't believe that others are not.

Be objective about your potential! take an IQ test to chekc your level of intelligence, it will put things in perspectives.

Ok you made a few bucks with poker, but in poker you cannot lose what you don't have, in trading you can lose far more than what you put in your bank account.

It takes years to learn trading. I don't want to put you down, everyone can learn, but don't think you are more motivated than other traders are.... you don't know how much they are motivated.

Also, consider the scenario in which trading it won't work for at least a couple of years.... this might be a trigger for your alcohol addiction. Be very cautious.

Wish you all the best
