This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

A lots of Trades

Hello everybody
I want to share you with a big problem that i have and if anyone can tell his opinion on it i'll appreicate this.

I have one major problem , I do a lots of trades in the day and I can not control myself on it.
I'm talking about 20-35 trades in 3 to 4 hours sitting near the computer and sometimes even more .
At the end of the day I always on profit amounted to 40-50 % commissions

I work with one contract on th ES.
I do about 4-6 points on gross and sometimes even more .

I think I should make up 5-6 trades a day.
No matter to me if, according to the daily income will be reduced.

The problem is that I start to trade and soon I find myself already with 10-15 trades .

By the way a lot of my trades are BE or exit in profit of tick or two when the trade is not doing what I expected at a certain time .

What do you think about it?

Thank you
