Keep doing what your doing. Journal is for you, don't worry about lack of comments - people don't get too excited about a chart without fancy indicators. Just the way I like 'em...
Enjoy your weekend,
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

ZBM12 is bouncing off the 50% retracement level (Feb high of 143.031 and Mar 19th low of 135.156) for the last couple of days...
That March 19th low was just under 4.00% (3.982%) equivalent nominal yield. Although I don't technically use these "landmark" yield rates (and their corresponding ZB price points) as entry/exit triggers, I do keep up with them (i.e. -- 3.50%, 3.75%, 4.00%)
Coincidence or not, but ZB does like to reverse direction at these major yield percentages (price equivalents of course...)
Keep up the good work and execute your plan -- there seem to be few ZB/ZN traders here at futures.io (formerly BMT) forum
Do you have a site where you can get or confirm DV01 for different contracts or do you calculate them yourself? I'm relatively new to zn/zb and look forward to any feedback, insights, etc. you can share given your experience.
Thanks for the feedback. Is there a way to do a back-of-the-envelope and calculate the approximate DV01 for a futures contract ZN/ZB without going thru the DV01 and conversion factor calc on cheapest to deliver, etc.?
For example, what's a good "guestimate" for the ZN june contract price if 10-year yields hit all time lows of 1.7% or even 1.5%?
