The journal is named: "Trading ES for success - PA Day after Day" Actually i´m doing a little excursion to the NQ in the moment, but still referring to PA.

Waiting, Discipline and Patience Pays!

What do I have to lose?

At first I thought It's probably best If I don't post my journal because I doubt many people will thank this post. Then I started looking at my view count compared to some other journals and realized that there has to be some people out there interested in what I've got to say. So I'll make this post like every trade I make with the thought "what do I have to lose?"

But I don't want to make this all about me, so here's what you have to gain:

I promise if you thank my post that I'll document my TST experience on futures.io (formerly BMT) and make it fun and interesting.

So consider the r:r

Thanks!

UBC - Trade Journal Entry

I'll jump into the fray. My journal is located at

https://futures.io/trading-journals/31611-ubc-trading-journal-day-trading-journey.html#post411206

I wasn't able to keep current on my first attempts at the journal. Perhaps the contest can help me keep it current.

I primarily trade the NQ & TF, sometimes the YM if it looks like a good trend day.

I am LIVE trading two accounts I use almost every session. There may be some SIM mixed in, but very little.

I will be concentrating on scalping both of my primary symbols and looking for good opportunities to hold for larger gains on trend days.

First October post coming later today/tonight after the 10/1 session.

Bill

So here's my journal, I think it might be nice to win a combine. Hopefully the journal will help someone along the way as well as making sure I stay on top of things.

Should be an interesting month.

My ES Jpurnal - Profile and Auction Logic

I am entering the contest for a selfish reason - I want to form an habit of consistently writing journal. I appreciate any thanks received but I am sure there are many others here who are consistent and more deserving of winning the contest.

Bribery? How about content? I don't mean to be rude but this is like politicians paying for votes....it corrupts the system. If this post is an attempt at humor, I really don't find it funny at all.

EDIT: OP has removed offending language and I have subsequently thanked his post.

I'm sorry If what I said earlier came off rude or humorous because I didn't intend it to be either. I believe futures.io (formerly BMT) has helped me become profitable and I simply want to give back if it helps me get funded through TST. If I wanted to pay people out it would be more efficient to just pay the minuscule price of 400 dollars and buy the combine.

Bribery is an act of giving money or gift giving that alters the behavior of the recipient, where the gift is of a dishonest nature. There's nothing dishonest about what I was planing to give and It wouldn't of been given until I was funded and making money through it. The other part of what I'm giving involves directly with content: me documenting my TST on futures.io (formerly BMT) and showing how I'm making the money. Honestly the second part of what I just said should be of more value than 100 dollars. Obviously if people don't think I'll make money then the vote is void either way. It doesn't matter if I offer 1000 dollars to each thanks if people don't think I can fulfill the promise. Just like the markets there is supply and demand.

I just wanted to give back to people who believed in me.
