Hello alejo,

I've been following your posts for over a year now. I don't know if you think you are struggling or if you are ok with trying new methods and ideas over and over again.

yes i am struggling of course, more than struggling ...

In case you do feel lost:
I don't want to give you any advise to prevent additional confusion.

i appreciate your comments and your time

But please do yourself a favour and stop experimenting and focus on one method you do understand.
good idea!
i need to try to find something i understand

I'm sure that by now you've accumulated enough knowledge. There must be something you believe in about markets. Really give yourself a chance and prove if that works or it doesn't. It will take time. You may need to make some adjustments down the road, but if your views are based on solid principles you should be able to find a way out just by analysing your own performance. Sometimes your mistakes can be a source of future opportunities.

good idea

You need to realise that there is a chance you would have turned the corner by now if you didn't jump from one method to another.

could be, yes


I think this is the single most important decision you need to make. If you don't, you don't stand a chance.

thanks

what happened to trading zb / zn?

thanks for ask and for your interest

as i try to learn ft71 way with VP, and he use indexes ,es,etc i am practicing with them

also what happened while i was practicing with zn, was ,i do not like it the way a lot of time zn is correlated with es,
sometimes directly, sometimes inversely
i was watching zn, then something happen with es, affect very directly zn
who manage who?

i think also the nq offers more trades opportunities, more volatility, and less risk per tick 5 agaisnt 15 tick,

all these things are general ideas why i am trying different things to find something i feel comfortable

also i was practicing with m6e but it is difficult to cost lot/target for short targets and stay focus with the little amount of money
and with big swings i made horrible

beliefs



alejo View Post
thanks

100% agree with you alejo!

It is all about our beliefs, which includes finding your edge and developing it, which you can only do when you believe in it!

That edge may be a Volume Profile, measured move / pattern or indicator (or whatever) based.

But that is not enough: you need to have strong beliefs about your risk management, eg: "I believe I must get my trade safe quickly by either moving my stop on scaling out so I can relax and let this trade go and focus on the next trade, because the outcome of this trade is determined by a random series which will be profitable in the long run, because I have an edge I understand and believe in."

Stick to one approach, develop your style, become an expert and never change it - at the same time work on your own psychology and learn to manage your emotions.

Good luck and good trading!

why is so difficult to wait to a level

turn here?
it will continue down?
again and again
but in a moment, swift rejection
it has turned
yes was there
it is easy now see that
but i am out
can i enter now?, chase it
what if it is a pullback and continue?

if wait and do not enter , i can lost

i think the problem i had is because i do not like it lost the possible move, i am not wait it, not be patient to wait enough
and jump early

but once it has turn..i can enter in the first pullback? or go with them
