Hi guys,

Wow! The journal challenge is off to a great start! I am so happy to see so many people trying journaling for the first time, as well as those who have finally decided to get serious about their trading and start a journal!

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Estimation trading


My journal is based on estimation trading and is for the ES.

The idea is that the markets are predictable.

I make initial estimates before the opening:
  • what the high and low of the day will be,
  • what the main direction of the day will be, (from the first end to the second end - ie the longest leg),
  • the open,
  • the range of the day,
  • the midpoint of the day, and
  • the first leg of the day after the RTH open.
My goal is to estimate the first end (FE) within +/- 1.5pts, buy or sell as indicated and then capture as much of the main leg as possible.

Usually, the estimate of the second end (SE) is adjusted once I feel the FE is in place.

Here is my journal entry

If you like it vote by clicking the "thanks" button.
My thanks to everyone for their votes and good luck to all.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

FIO Journal Challenge - July 2017

Good day fellow traders
I am new here, just found out this great place on internet. And so happen there is this contest so i decided to kick start my posts here. https://futures.io/trading-journals/42594-fio-journal-challenge-july-2017-a.html#post647495

My journal consist of an excel file and a journal on OneNote ( Microsoft).

I uploaded a pdf print out of my excel spreadsheet which contain basic entry and exit information. i also upload pdf print out from OneNote which contain my decision making for each and every signal. I will upload latest copy every now and then after i exit from a position.

I consider myself discretionary in systematic way. I have been using a market profile indicator and trade swing time frame ( combined analysis on 1H and 4H) for more than 2 years now. I use tradestation and trade Live on someone's account, you may consider this someone my very rich uncle.

my past performance is no indication of future performance. I am still in early stage of a trader who is eager to forward run my strategy and fine tune for an edge. (yes i am still struggling, despite some good trades from Wheat lately)


Thank you for visting my post. If you have any question feel free to contact me. I hope to learn a lot from other traders who sharing their journal & relevant experience here. So please, any comment will be appreciated.

Here is my blog : https://futures.io/trading-journals/42378-experiment-forex-position-trading.html

I started with majors but just working with aud/usd for now.

I mostly look at all time frames; volume profiles; trader sentiments from various places and then try to keep a level of exposure in order to get some gains and then attempt to ride price when/if it breaks out of expected ranges.

"1Shot2Kill" Journal

Hello everyone,

I finally found the "missing piece of the puzzle" after many years of painfully and unsuccessfully trading futures without Harmonic Patterns; thus I wanted to uncover my "aha patterns" which were the combination of "Shark" and "Cypher" patterns that were in play together during contracts rollover or financial crisis.

Check out my "1Shot2Kill" Journal where I plan to attack "SingleEntry==>MultiTargets<>ContractsRollover" strategy!

Enjoy and TradeSmater!


P.S. Don't forget to click "Thanks" button on bottom right hand side to vote for me... who is writing and posting the best July Journal Challenge, ok? Thanks a million for doing that.
