Chipps Journal Challenge

Its been a while I have been trading and FIO is my home.

I tried all the different methods in the last 3 years and now stuck to order flow trading watching price action and imbalances.

I primarily trade NQ100 futures on an intraday time frame and been good with it so far. So far in my 5 yrs of experience (Yes, that's the actual number and 3yrs on FIO), I have not been successful or even to BE since I started to look into this never-ending dilemma.

Since the beginning of the year, I found some success with my small account. June month has been very hard. The market is teaching me a lesson for my ego from recent profits and again its part of the business.

Here is my link to the journal. Hope you like what I post and if so, hit the thanks button.

FM's Trade Log

Here's my submission to the contest, a little late to the party. In addition to my usual weekly updates, this month I plan to post some intraday activity also.

Journal Contest Entry

I wasn't going to enter this contest, but I got an email from FIO today that said it's not too late, so I'll toss my entry in now.

Here's a link to my first journal post in July. We'll take this as my start:

https://futures.io/elite-trading-journals/32236-trade-journal-133.html#post684965

There are so many truly great journals entered this year. It will be a pleasure reading the ones I don't already know, and I'll vote enthusiastically for many of them, I'm sure.

Good luck to everyone (and I'll take some, too .)

Bob.

Serious Preparation for TopStepTrader - Exact Steps To Get Funded

I had actually created this journal for the July 2017 journaling contest. Life with its challenges took over and trading took a backseat. I hope to start afresh, so here's my journal:

Serious Preparation for TopStepTrader - Exact Steps To Get Funded

https://futures.io/trading-journals/42554-serious-preparation-topsteptrader-exact-steps-get-funded.html

Please press Thanks below if you feel this journal should win!

Hi guys,

Only a few days left! There have been some great journals submitted -- way to go guys!

Please be sure to vote for your favorite journal(s) by using the "Thanks" button in THIS THREAD for the journal authors post. We will count the number of thanks received at the end of the month, and the winners will be chosen based on this.

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.

I am not sure this is the best way to count the vote. I think it is better to count the vote in the actual journal itself.
