Today appears to be a MUCH smoother and trending day, more typical of the TF. Great job on the almost 5 points

Many thanks to the site and all the contributors. Great source of info.

Thanks Johnny!

It does seems smoother. I think it looks even better on 233T than 1M. I like it at least. 86ticks chart provides me great opportunity for aggressive management trailing stop above/below large candles or High/Low.

Thank you for your comments and your input.

To be honest I think that NFT has some flows. I mean that going for gas thing. Another thing that turning me of that you need a lot of screen space to watch all time frames. The strategy I'm looking for is the one I can trade from laptop anywhere I go.

Yes, the 'going down for gas' thing is an amateur description of hidden divergence. Sometimes Henry likes how he picks things up and it was from a student that said it seems like the bb's are going down for gas.

There are flaws in every trading style and you should definitely follow your heart if it is two charts or twenty. I would put up 50 charts if that made it easier to predict. I don't really even pay attention to a great many when I trade but it helps to just have them open so I can analyze another time frame when I am not 'seeing it' on a different timeframe.

You have a lot of talent and you will be good no matter what.

Good job today.

Couldn't get up in the morning to trade opening.

Got my charts open around 10:45. Had only 3 trades, It was kinda slow after 10:30.

First trade I saw that it's not gonna work out after I got in and I placed my stop to +1tick but it took me out with BE.

Second and third trade worked out fine for 2.4 total. I missed next entry and didn't want to get in later because it's not such a great move and I thought that it didn't worth risk of realized profit.

Here are my trades:


I didn't post anything on Friday because I've been trading all day and then had to go work. I had a lot of trades around 30 or so and a lot of them just stupid without clear signals. It was up and down and I closed with -2.5 points.

That advice about 3 trades a day or do not get in for a while after it take you out are very good. I just don't believe that trader that knows what he's doing should take money and run before you loose it. I think if you know what you are doing you should be profitable no matter how many trades you take. I would even say more trades you take more profit you get.

I know that I can be profitable if I think and wait for clear entries. I loose money when I stop thinking and start just clicking.

Let's see how this week gonna go.

The point of the 3 trades per day is to build a sense of trading discipline, nothing more. Knowing that you would only have 3 trades available, you have to make your trades count and ensure maximum profit potential.

I couldn't trade yesterday. Didn't have power from 9am. Then I watched Bluemele video on my iphone and I thought if I trade replay it's gonna be cheating.

Today was really tough day for me. I didn't see nice smooth moves. I had 22 trades (way too many). My profit target was hit only three times. It would take my stop loss and then move in my direction at the most of my trades.

After I stopped trading I got nice set up and it would run all the way to the target for 4.9 points (11:52am). I've been waiting for it the whole morning.

After all my fees ($5 trade) I would have only $80 left, but it's still green and I'm glad I could manage to get my losses back.

Here is a summary:

Yes, but days like this live trading are a bitch. I don't think you can avoid them unless you put in a physical limit or can limit yourself physically some way. I watch how many days I have like this and it tells me how far out from live trading I am.

I have a suggestion and take it for what it is worth. When you first started the journal you were doing very well. I think as you get better and better with a method you can reduce your charts/screens etc..

I put 2 optimized double stochastics on the TF on a 144 chart. 144 is just like NFT setup, but the stochastics are on the 1597 and 4181 timeframes. I think you will find that if you only buy when completely oversold and sell when completely overbought, that you could find as much success as any group of indicators, etc..

Enjoy watching your journey.

Thank for advice!!!

I tried stochastics before and I didn't like. I think I'm on the right way right now. My 22 trades were just because I wanted to trade and didn't want to wait for trend. I opened my charts around 9:45 and my first trade was around 9:50am. By that time there was no direction and that was a reason for so many losses. My last few trades I took when it started moving down. I have to be more patient and wait for bigger moves. Sure I've made some mistakes here and there but over all I'm satisfied with today's trading.

Thanks again for your advice.
