day1 combi150k

cdr 31p!
is difficult with that range
i am thinking
1)i can react in 1min or
2)i have to watch the news, remember
3)i must follow the pa
4)nice entries would be:
+4154 1min or

and -4170 LH

what i miss

i have think to wait to wait till an extreme and there i can enter

but i chase a failed break out

nice thing: when i was long, i see the prob to go down and i do the right thing, reverse
i feel something to sa

also i was holding the trade short, several minor pullback: good

and read the pa at bottom to reverse

new rule to remember to accomplish witj combine
flat at 3:10ct

day2 combi150k lp


well, i reach my first step 1k5 to use 3 lot now
i manage very well the trade adding and scaling, specially considering i use 2 lot only
the preopen trade was unuseful, because stall, and in the open the open swing override everything, i could get a better entry for the initial idea

topsteptrader setup my combine for nov17
i need to check how to connect and setup sc before that

also i need to be carefull with the use of stops, and with pressing cancell all button, and set the stop at hand,
i ask @matevisky about this thing, because i am without stop for a couple of second
other possibility is cancelling at hand one by one

overall, i am very focus, and doing the things good

answer: no, i have done in 2 days
it is more rigid, yes, but less risk at initial stages

day3 i am $3000 with 3 lot

my goal for today was to reach 2k5 to use 5 lot
but , my open trade did very good , and the today s trades also, then i got it directly to more than 3k then now i can use 10 lots
of course i limit my self to 5, i have 7 more days for 6000 to reach to 9k
better not think in the goal
i need to fight a lot against my desire to exit from the winners...and the pullbacks
but think it pays to do it

situation look good

i am preparing for the next week real combine, and i am doing thinking in that, and i am surprise how well is doing.
i can not believe it, but i know i need to think in the long run, draw downs, bad periods, etc
but for now i am enjoying this, and i need to watch the problem with overconfidence and the thin line between fail and sucess.
the key is keep calm in both states, winning ,losing,
i am working with be patient, let run the trade, not start big, and wait, wait, wait and wait
the scaling up is going faster. today with 10 lot i cracked, now with over 7k in profit i have a permision to trade 20 lots, crazy, i need 2k more in 4 days, sound easy? but be carefully, i know i can lost that several days in a row
the real combine i can use 15 lot from the day 1, in mine i start with the scaling rules, much more dificult at first, but is the lpr rules
also safety
tomorrow i have a very busy day, i do not if i have time to trade, and on monday the real test.
i need to setup the SC on sunday, because i do not have the keys upto sunday
step by step, and remember the market can be treacherous !

lol Alejo I was just remembering the first time you sent me a private message and I asked you if you were drunk because I didn't know you were from Spain using a translator. That was funny.

Good luck with your combine, you've come a long way!

when i almost reach to the goal

the focus today was to reach the goal, and i remember that @tigertrader said, i do not trade my equity, my P&L, ....i need to trade the market
but the main focus was on the 1k8 i need to finish, and i made severals mistakes on a row, add in a bad place only to reach the 80 points,
in a minor PB, i flat, and i lost the chance to get the 80 Points
re entry soon...because i was obsessed with the 30 points! i have booked 52 in the first bad trade..., then i think yes , this continue up, 10 points, it is only one more push and disgard the the down option (that i first think, when flat, but deleted with the last push)
and yes, that was the last push....all the times i shorted thinking this is the last push, to realize, not it was a pullback...and now...was the last

to get thing worse, i went out to work....and i find 30 points down the osl when come back!

well, at least, i can fixed, but was a lost day (yesterday i think, maybe is a good idea not to trade because the busy job day...)

but the main issue, was not focus on market and focus on the goal,

tomorrow will be the last day and i need 1k3 , but i need to focus in not focus on that goal!
focus on market, and nothing more, do my best

on monday i start the real combine, and i need to do it as i did this

combine 150k day1


i was waiting this day and i do nothing, only relaxing.
i have confidence
this morning when i receive the id and try to connect with SC according their instruction, it failed
after the job i try to solve that with SC, i thought, i can not start today
but, finally i get the conexion ok, and i could trade.(i use the session i have with s5 to reinstall other sc, then i miss some charts)

range33 points...coiling
if i need 10 days ,this is not one of the easiest,
i lost the initial sell off.
but was ok, i think the first day could be key for the mind
1 trade, well managed, small size, 4, and up 65p
the goal is 450p
i think i need av100p, but after the test of other day, i start with the scaling plan (more flexible here)

all trade 1
