FIO Journal Challenge - May 2017 (over $2,000 in prizes)

Hi guys,

Continuing in the tradition of encouraging journals on FIO, I am announcing a new Journal contest for May 2017 featuring NinjaTrader.

The rules are extremely simple for this event:

a) The contest begins May 1 and ends May 31. All decisions made by futures.io are final.

b) This thread that you are reading right now will act as the repository for all journals that are entered into the contest.

c) The author of a journal can enter his/her futures.io journal into the contest by posting a link to his/her journal in this thread. Only the author of the journal can do this. Please post the link to the journal ONE TIME, AND ONE TIME ONLY in this thread.

d) In order to qualify as a @NinjaTrader journal, you need to regularly post your trading charts using the NinjaTrader platform.

e) Members of futures.io will cast their votes for the best journals by using the "Thanks" button on the post that the journal author has made in this very thread. This is why it is very important the author of the journal make only one post, because only one post will be used to count the total number of "Thanks Received" in this thread, and that is how the winners will be decided. Members can vote for as many separate journals as they want by following the same procedure.

f) There will be three prizes awarded, based on the highest number of "Thanks Received" per the above. The prizes are (1) Lifetime license to NinjaTrader, and (2) 1-year annual license to NinjaTrader. I will post the full details of the NinjaTrader License prizes below.

Thank you to @NinjaTrader for sponsoring this event. You can find NinjaTrader on their website here:
https://ninjatrader.com

My goal with these contests is to encourage the journaling process, as I firmly believe the more you participate in the journal process, the better trader you will become.

If anyone has any questions, please let me know. This thread will remain closed to posts until May 1st (contest start date).

Mike

d) In order to qualify as a @NinjaTrader journal, you need to regularly post your trading charts using the NinjaTrader platform.

I used to use rtfChartMinder to do this on NT7. I haven't found a version of it for NT8. Is there a way to post charts from NT8?

My Journal

My journal - how to become a winning trader and how to move beyond and KEEP winning...


There I was, staring at a valley full of treasure, yet every path I took made me lose myself. Until I realized that the valley was INSIDE me and not elsewhere - it was just a image on the pinhole camera of my eye; and the day I pointed my efforts INWARDS was when I became successful - this is THAT missing journal:


Winning in Trading... and Beyond

My July 2017 Challenge Journal Please read and Press Thanks on This Post

Hey there FIO. Here's my journal. You'll find me doing a bit of early morning CL trading, as well as some ETF swing trading if opportunities arise. Thank you Big Mike for the opportunity to participate.
