My daily recap:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Cumulative profit at quick summary https://futures.io/traders-hideout/11184-italian-job.html

You're paying $1.58 in commissions?

EDIT: Looked over some of your other statements too. On Thursday you took 9 trades and paid $29.54 in commissions. Friday you took 10 trades and paid $25.32 in commissions. That doesn't add up? Are your "daily recaps" a mix of "real" and sim trading?

Comms 6E with Kinetick were set to zero that is why you had a difference. Thanks for pointing it out, as I take not more than 3-4 trades a day the difference is not that big.

you will notice that the entries were taken above the 2nd SD, I don't know why but the indicator when I entered the first trade was plotting price on the 2SD. I will have to check that (as I mentioned before trading needs a bit of luck as well)

I don't know why but both CL and 6E are plotting different vwaps if compared with Fat Tails' https://futures.io/free_downloads/ninjatrader-7/indicators/674-download.html. That happened just today, normaly both indies plot same values. The only reason that comes to my mind is data series related to the 4th of july break, maybe @Fat Tails can tell us more about it. I will stop trading until the problem is solved.

@Fat Tails Just noticed that the trade with FT's vwap was taken correctly, I only need to understand why my vwap is plotting differently

it's something related to the 4th july holiday, i guess....i noticed my bands did not reset from yesterday so i changed the holyday date in the indicator setup window. Now they looks correctly(i don't use them for trading, so they are just fine for now) with my setup and session template.

Thanks for pointing that out, you are correct if I change the date in FT's vwap the bands are the same but not the vwap. FT's is correct and that is going to be my Vwap indicator.
