Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Automated we are looking at a universe of 15 futures here Once you automate the question is not how many to watch, but mostly which make sense (must e liquid enough etc.), which correlate (no sense in trading US stock markets in 10 different contracts) and which you can optimize and backtest for (which is pretty much a money argument - currently we are falling behind on this side due to ONLY 4 machines used for testing, but as we moved last week to new offices.... in about a month we will have settled and handled most secondary upgrades, then I can theoretically get another 30 or so, from the planned cooling and power allocations.

Not al strategies also make sense on all markets.

For swings, I watch 3 (using weekly, 4hr chart) and for day hedges I have 16 up (only 5 min. chart).

After all is said and done I trade 3-5 total but have done more in the past especially when day hedges are
biting hard...see the signal, I pull. I like having my eggs in different baskets.

I read the action on swings and my day hedges are all mechanical entries. I try to stay mechanical
on the exits but sometimes I use discretion and exit earlier than my mechanical target.
I posted every single one for over a month in my journal if interested.
I traded 10-15 different instruments then. (just an estimate, I would need to look to confirm).

Right now I'm on 1 mechanical long. Long /6J .012692 target .012708

UPDATE for the heck of it: Target hit, limit out. Trend continuation swing short entry .012707
target 012670, 012650

Targets hit in 6J...happened a little quicker than I thought.
Quite the dump.

So far this week I've traded /CL, /6E and /6J.
