BenG's STIRS story

Hi everyone,

I've decided to start making a journal on futures.io (formerly BMT). I do journal but have never really been the type to feel the need to put it out there. I don't know how relevant the price is as I'm a spread trader, trading outside the given contracts. I have read however that some of these things are negotiable so either way I've got nothing to loose.

I've been a member of Big Mike for quite some time, mostly been interested in reading other peoples threads and listening to the webinars, especially the webinars I find very helpful. As I've recently changed my market I went back to square one. So after doing some training earlier this year on spread trading, I have now begone to build up a track record.

At this moment in time I have put my focus on just one contract, but could trade more as I've done previously. The contract of choice here is Euribor, or I on NYSE Liffe. It's also available on Eurex, but currently I'm going through NYSE.

this is the link to my journal; https://futures.io/trading-journals/33456-beng-s-trading-journal-stirs-markets.html

I haven't seen many spread traders on here, even less people that trade the STIRS market. Any feedback etc is welcome.


Don't let money control you, control money!

I've done my best to make a post in everyone's active journal thread letting them know about the contest. If I forgot to post in your thread it was just an oversight.

Good luck everyone!

Mike

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)

Beeper's Journey to Consistent Profits

Hi All!

Beeper here. I’m new to futures.io (formerly BMT) and I’m nervous, excited, dreadful, and embarrassed about the process ahead.

I’ve been trading part time for the past four years. In that time I’ve made some money, lost more money and now I’m starting to breakeven. I daytrade on the US futures market from 8:00 AM to 10:30 AM Monday through Friday. I’m only trading one contract, usually either in the Mini Dow (YM) or the 30 year T-bill (US). I'm trading with real money (albeit small $$) and will journal all trades; good and bad.

This is my first attempt at using a trade log. My goals are:
1. To continue to learn the craft of trading pushing my way into consistent profitability.
2. To absorb and implement as much advice and support from fellow traders as I can.
3. To take my collection of random thoughts, trades and results into a cohesive repeatable trading system.

This is going to be a bloody bloody process but one that I hope will make a major difference in my trading.

I seriously encourage feedback and comments. My trade journal can be found here:

https://futures.io/elite-trading-journals/33425-beeper-s-price-action-journey-consistent-profits-future-contracts.html

Thank you,

Beeper

First time live trader journal!

Here is the link to my journal.

https://futures.io/trading-journals/33436-diamond5-tradinge-journal.html#post439263

I feel like my excel spreadsheet is very inclusive and that may be the biggest value you find in this journal. I'll be trading live with this so hopefully all goes well. Paper trading gave me about an 85% success rate over 3 months. This is not automated however. Still more of an art than a science. My war cry for this method is "Continuous Small Gains make you RICH!!!" Don't forget that it's all about percentages and leverage, not grand slams, and if you pass up home runs for a game full of base hits you will win. Watch Moneyball.
