Could you creat this keep me from trading indicator?

I'd like to have and indicator or whatever it would be that would stop me from making a trade. I eventually make a mistake, and at night when I look back I can see that my rules kept me from taking that trade. However I guess I get conffused or something. I've done this so many times and it's really holding me back.

I'd like to just have something that when I clicked buy or sell, the program let me, or stopped me based on my rules. I realize this seems silly to, well to whom ever, but can it be done? Could something like that even be programed? Thanks

My wife uses a 44 Magnum with hollow point bullets to keep me from taking a trade.
It's not easy to program but it works well...

In your case, perhaps just turning off the computer would work just as well and not be nearly as dangerous to your future.

If you want on-screen reminders with motivational text or rule-following text, then yes an indicator can be used to put this on your chart. But I find post-it notes work better.

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.

Just a thought....

I wonder if Upupandaway is an alias for JetTrader, who has, as I mentioned elsewhere, dropped off the radar screen.

May I propose something? You can tell me to go eff off.


One (the negative side) - you do not take risk seriously if you are writing this. The market will soon take your money. And also, are you a child that can't help but put your finger in the the fire?

Second (the positive) - you realize it must be stopped, so that's very good. Right now, you just can't help yourself.

I had this exact problem an year ago, what did I do? - I only watched the highest time frame chart to begin with. The smaller chart was only for micromanging the entry. And 2nd (most important) - bottle and preserve the days you disgust yourself, when you do stupid shit. When you get killed, those are the days that you MUST not forget. Most people want to forget the bad days. WRONG - those are the days you you learned the most. Why would you throw away that lesson?

Screw the winning days, no one cares. You learn little from winning, except maybe to inflate your ego as the the market lulls you into thinking that you are a hero. No one is.

My turnarounds came from NEVER EVER forgetting my failures. Because I bottled them, I detailed them in my log, snapshots, my exact feelings at the that time, Write down your disgust, express it and record it for posterity.

The survivors are the one who never forget the bad days. Those survivors are statistically also the millionaries

I rarely post here in these because 90% of people look at magic indicators and systems and theories and what not. It's disheartening. The only thing that matters to me was understanding risk, and that meant being ready for the market doing the unthinkable (like it ran away today). But if you constantly think about risk (like an actuarian) you will cease being surprised and that is step one to success. No indicator or system can make you do that. You already have the most powerful weapon in the world. Your brain and your choice to click it or not click it.

Best of luck.

Good post.

But don't stop posting because everyone is looking for the easy way out with the holy grail indicator.

Instead, post more and help these people out and show them alternatives.

Well yah I agree with you all. I should be able to stop doing this. And on some days I can. Then eventually I'll screw it up. Guess I'll have to start keeping a written journal. Thanks for the responses

Once, I stumped the great darkhorse on ET by telling him I was only interested in his losings. I guess he didn't expect it at all.
