FIO Journal Challenge - July 2018 ($500 in prizes)

Hi guys,

Continuing in the tradition of encouraging journals on FIO, I am announcing a new Journal contest for July 2018.

The rules are extremely simple:

a) The contest begins July 1 and ends July 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) 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.

e) There will be four prizes awarded, based on the highest number of "Thanks Received" per the above. The prizes are all equal -- a $125 Amazon Gift Card, delivered by email to the four winners of the challenge. The total prizes awarded will be $500.00.

Thank you to FIO Site Sponsors NinjaTrader and Stage 5 Trading for sponsoring this event. Please show your support to these sponsors by visiting their website (below) and by requesting your exclusive Elite Member discount offer from here:

NinjaTrader's website:

NinjaTrader offers Elite Members a $100 discount off a new lifetime multi-broker license, see above link for details.

Stage 5 Trading offers Elite Members the first 2 months of license fees FREE for select developers on S5 iSystems, see above link for details.

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 July 1st (contest start date).

Mike

My project:


The little DAX does not want to sleep yet


In January 2018 I started my project. An automated trading system provides the signals for entry and exit to the small DAX Future FDXM. The signals are generated in the evening when the little DAX "does not want to go to bed yet". Including money and risk management. So far every trade has been documented.
It is a real money system. In the first six months of the year, the system generated about 5,000 euros.
Look at it.

Aah what the hell, I'll throw my helmet into the ring...

In a nutshell, I joined FIO back in February of last year with no experience whatsoever. Fast forward to now, I'm trading EUR/USD live (for the second time LOL) and am pretty much breakeven thus far, but feel like I'm close to making it work for real.

Hop on over, check it out, and don't forget to crush that little THANKS button down in the lower right hand corner of your screen if ya thought the trip was worthwhile

Hello,

Its been awhile since I last posted any charts or even traded for that matter. Two years age I was hit by a car while ridding my bike. I suffered many injuries including broken vertebrae , leg, ribs, a concussion among others things. I have a rod in my back, which is now causing my legs to go numb. Just imagine 1000 pins at once being jabbed into you at once, the pain can be unbearable. I can now understand how people can get addicted to pain killers.


I have been trading off and on, it depends on how I feel, there are some days I can barley sit.


I will make the effort to get back into trading, and the journal contest could not have come at a better time. The contest will give me the incentive.


Here is my chart from Friday, the blue vertical line is where I entered. The Kumo break, retrace to the Kijun line and the continuation.

Keep things as simple as possible, but no simplier. Albert Einstein

If you can't explain it to an eight year old it's to complicated

My Success story!)

Hello guys!
Few month ago im start my public trading journal and now i want to be a part of this challange!

Some information about my view about trading and trading journal:

What a successful trader means:
1. Constant profit this is constant work;
2. Discipline in every step;
3. Every next day to be better than yesterday;
4. Strong risk managment;
5. Positive life style, training (GYM, street workout...), read books .... and etc
6. NO SMOKING (or you kill your health before you become a pro trader);

What can give you trading journal
1. Prepare your trading plan ( NOT gambling plan));
2. Keep track of trading results;
3. Find your strengths and weeknesses side;
4. To write a success story of development))
and more....

Here is my example of success strory :


P.S. Good luck to everyone and thanks in advance to who like.

My KISS trading



My system is an automated trading setup initially developed to see if I could program Sierra Charts to auto trade. Well after a bit, this is what I am doing. Based on the 930 eastern open, sell every time price goes up 3 points and buy every time price goes down 3 points. Let's see how it goes.
