combine 150k day9

how thin is the line between the winners and losers
instead of staying aside of this compress day, i was watching and i felt in the temptation of say, i can scalp this between the bot/top range, and i can enter big size with mn risk, all the opposite i need to do, and the trade was fantastic, but i miss manage, and instead of take 10points, i was waiting for more???, while it find resistence and start to go in the other direction, when i see the reduction from 140 to 75,50,25, and loss, i was dreaming to go down again, but not
unless i close quick it for little loss
now, i say i lost 1 trading day, then i wait another trade
when b/o IBH and made Aup , i went long in a pb,
i was fighting with my original short idea, and try again at15/16
but i decide long for space above and break resi area
i was wrong, and i wait the final push, never reach, and i close it at tick to avoid to reach the limit
but not only i missuse a day on top of that i loss 145p
i hope not forget this day as a lesson to not repeat,
only 1 day left

We are always human, fallible and fickle, we must always remember it, accept it and fight it.

i made 3 last stupids trades in 6e,zn,gc, that don t addup nothing to the practice

what did yesterday after finish the combine, buy other
in the first i made the mistake to not include comisions on max daily loss, and i hit it
the pressure with the combine was similar with$$, when i made trade in sim and i made trade on combine, i notice the difference, that is good, nice to practice in that environment
the limits get me tied and confuse(dll3000,wll3000,maxdd4500)

why i want to start tomorrow the new combine, because i think, with ecb +nfp this compressing mkt explode, there is no a good reason
another thing is after failing the n1, i want to probe me i can to do it, but is neccesary going too quick to n2?
this impatient behavior is the same impatient behavior that does not let me wait to the selloff, wait to the mkt reach at support, increase the vol, and enter after that, and find my self in a too soon trade

combine 2 150k 5dic to jan 4 day1

well i start today the number2, without resting
in a hurry, and on friday! my worse historical day, and i confirm with the result
after nfp, i see my yesterday strategy working today
6e,zn,gc fall gc 20 pp
but i did not trade that strategy because was out of my plan
(maybe bad plan)
i lost most the chances to make money and was in all to lose money
this low volatility is not good for me, i see some opportunities, but i can not use them
my best trades were in trends

there i think today try ng...for first time
the ACD ,OR and the aup down, does not work in nq, and i see, that work, tf,ym,ng...
we need trending mkt
i do not want change the market because i have a claim against nq , it is me who can not be profitable with all the ,markets, but i was away form high volatility because risk, and maybe i need that volatility,
but with the mini limits of combine it is not good, they put presure to enter good at mkt

today i think to change some rules and sout to reduce risk, but i was in losing posi all day and with little mfe i can not use it

for next week i am in disadvantage now under water-1889 in nq , and i need to recover nq in 9 days
my goal needs to be accomplish the rules

key pattern

1 KRD o KRU with Fsauct bar+uptrhust on s7r zone
2)wedge up...and go down
3)sell off, with increase vol+swift rejection+support
4)is much better wait to a border and fade with less risk than chase it

combine2 150k day2 and how finish early

the dream last a little bit
start very good but i do not how to manage the things
my average -2@ 62 with the weak opening could be fantastic
i took to many bad decisions
i want to exit before the open but ,instead of flat i reverse the short, and then reverse the long, and i lost all the first winning trade
i forgot soon to not use more than 2 lots
i forgot early to use scales out reduce risk

and then start with 5 up down, chasing, reversing and losing control, with short bias, also after the nice long at 5@25, was the bottom but i fight the trend
the mistakes cost money
in this case the chance of other combine.
when i realize that i was at -4350 , it was too late,
i think , imposible mission to trade with 150 8 days and get pnl to 0 again
but instead of wait for tomorrow to try that
no i want revenge now
my last chance
1 lot
wait and choose short...again -1@50
when i see the PB is building energy, i can exit, but i think...before i have 5 points, now i left only 2 points, if reverse and go long
fear, hesitation, 2 points stop?
i hold, and the bet is , reverted
but not the trend reasump long with force, now i am over the max dd
i have room to not reach max dll
up and up 50/60/70
set stop 74 and some ticks
and get stop yes
-2485
and continu 80/90
i was long 5@25?
yes....i think is time to finish this career

or

continue learning

i can try to respect 3000 dll, and trade the 8 days left and try to reach 9500

how can i do that?
when the mkt was choppy i say it id difficult for me
i wait trend
when is trendy it is difficult for me
on both cases i know the possibility was there
i do not how to capture it

i will try to learn the charts and correlations that @tigertrader talk about, yesterday i read his posts, one of the first step is try to gather important information and understand them
and mising with my tools, and see if i can take better decisions

RELAX, my friend. you are allowing your emotions to overwhelm and distort your decision making process. begin, by simply observing the market- don't feel like you have to make a trade - don't trade, just to trade - only trade when there is an opportunity with a high probability to make a profitable trade. just watch the market, and let the market tell you when that opportunity is there.

combine2 150k day3 trading suicide

yes, i need to follow the advices....relax, watch and not trade
but i am doing very bad decisions in my state, angry, frustrated, depress,
open 5lot in cl inventory, while i was holding 10 nq lots!
i want to finish this , then make a bet, quick, i am not trading
i think today was similar what i was doing 2 yrs ago
what about the deliberate practice?
the limit of size?
respect the limits?the rules?
i think, yes, cl is going down, then i go short
but 10 min later scared about a little spike, but with 5 lots...
but go long ....

and in nq...accept low prices , and i go long, continue the range...
but start with 5 lots
and after the bounce i add 5 more, ...what a test
totally unrespectully

this test is showing me in the hard way all that i could not did before
the lucky i have had to pass a similar test to this

if i have max dd 4k5 , and trade 10 days, what is the max pos i need to build
...better i go to bed, and take some distance

combine2 150k day4 i need to stop and change

i was thinking to use the rest of the days of the combine to practice a strategy to be in the rules, size, risk
i remember i write a plan in the day 1 to day 2 (i forgot completely on day2)
"Nq=-$2011
max dd 4500-1889=2611 new max DD

prof target 3000 (to pass over 0)
3000/9 av 333 goal 666 aprox 33 points

if i use 5 lots and scale each point

sloss -5p
t1 1
t2 2
t3 3
t4 4
t5 5

risk 500 target 300

max dd/risk 5 trades

and wait and enter in this way, more conservative

but i forgot completely, and i have done this disaster.

today , i re think the same, i can start small (like i did)
and check if i can trade in the limits for the rest of days.
but again, i took severals bad decisions
i reach in a hurry , i try to setup the dom with 5 target, and i couldnt
i have the short bias, and i wait a lot to flip
i was distracted with cl (again, i want to recover, ...)
but what happen, i spend all my daily loss limits in stupids things out of plan
also i use more size again, 5, 9 ..only to try to recover
but the hole was getting big
when i have 200, i made a last trade and i got +400
but then i throw in cl the money out
and when i have 30
i made the last bet on cl, if i lucky run
i was stop
i remember this situation, when i set a limit in infinity, i and i was locked every day, i try dif limits and i locked almost daily no matter the what limit is
or in s5, reducing size, and finishing m6e also under limit
the reasonable thing is
learn to set sc with 5 target
if i have 6 days, i need to limit myself to max dd 4500, then 700 is the max limit per day
then stop, if i increase $, i can increase that limit per day
i can use also the table of lot i have in my plan
but with that i can use 2 lot max per profit upto1500
before to try to get the goal i need to assure the compliance with the rules, but with this rules, if i not win in the first trade, it is hard,
then what is the plan, try to keep under the rules, is like to have the hands tied, and thinking in the pnl and not in the mkt is not good
6 days to go
6 days to test this

combine2 150k day5 from +6k to-4k conclusions


i learn how to setup the dom in SC
I start with the SO strategy with
5targets 10/20/30/40/50ticks
and work well, i feel i left a lot on the table, but the risk decrease in this way,
also i can addup in a pb with this strategy
i can start 1 lot and see, and then add 5 lot
what happen
i did good, so good, and i up +400p
but ,i think in PL -8k
then i think, i can use this for swing in cl
i did
i did bad
almost good, is quick with cl -3000+4000
all the work out
then , try to recover, risk too much
the same history
also risk max dll again
hit it again
-15k in 5 days, record i can reach -30k in 10 days
i exceed the max dd for 450k/12500dd/9000dll
i need to cash some(als i think i do not like it,but if you can not risk, not other possibility for me) , and not risk everything
let see i can repeat the plan i start today
SO strat
not increase risk as a mad
the only posibility is build little at first, not go to deep in day 1and lost mobility

5 days, i need to imagining i am in zero.
not swinging big and unsane size for this maxdd and maxdll
try to realize if after 5 days i am doing ok, then if i can do it, i can repeat in the next combine

other issue taht continue and ieed to be more aware
stay with winners, do not exit soon
