Don't get greedy! The money will be there and in my opinion YOU DID MAKE $530.00! I think you have to trick your mind to think that way if you are to actually form good habits. I was going to set up a deal with my wife to where she would change my account from sim to live without telling me. When I woke up that day, I could be trading either (with Ninjatrader it makes it more evident but not with ATC TRADER which we used to use).

Trading reminds me a bit like golfing. Sometimes I always have the direction right, but my entries suck. With golf, sometimes I can hit the clubs very well, but my irons suck. (not a big golf player anymore and just an example).

Once you get your WOOD play (Direction) down pat, then your Irons (entries) will be your focus. I had a life coach once that said, Tiger Woods can't see himself swing.

I am open to suggestions as to improve my trading! I figured the 76 would be a nice area, but too many long term MACD's were saying LONG, so waiting was a good thing.

You had good patience today and didn't over-trade.

-2.3 points

I used all my three trades too fast today. Almost in the same area.

I took 5 trades today because trade #4 was a mistake. I clicked on the wrong side of the DOM and got long instead of short. So scratch it with BE.

When I just opened my charts I didn't know what to do to be honest. I placed Fibs on 4181, but I think that wasn't right. Looking at those fibs we were at 38% I thought there is a good chance of deep pull back up. There was a lot of divergence on 144 - 987, but 4181 and 1597 were still down and 1597 was inside of the bands.

So I took all 3 longs and all of them losers. Then I thought that this is gonna be one of those trending days and I took short (another loss).

So today was pretty tough for me. I wasn't patient and didn't wait for the area to get in. I feel like I was kinda lost in today's market we'll see how it's gonna be tomorrow.

There was money to be made today for sure. The way I trade though, this was a tough day due to small stops and also BE+1 after it goes a few ticks. I really saw only one entry (long) near the open that would have been quite nice to get. I was going the longer term trend direction but I couldn't figure a nice entry for such even though it was starting me in the face.

I couldn't see a long term direction today at all. It didn't move by my logic today. After all my trades I've been watching market for another hour and I saw a few entries that would give me a couple points, but none of them got to my target. I'm pretty sure that for some other traders today was very predictable. I thought it's just me having hard time today and others would do very well. Now it's two of us.

@cory Thanks for the advice. I like to wait little bit after the open before I get in. Just to see what's going on on the market. I think it's my bad habits taking over again.

Over all I'm glad that market still moving and a lot of traders can make money.

This was the only obvious trade I saw today. Retests of double top with divergence on all charts. It went straight to 89% (about 10 points). I saw it live, but I sure didn't take. I just think this is very nice example of double top setup.

-2.8 poits

Not happy with my today's trading at all.

I just couldn't read it at all. My first trade i just wanted to try MB push at 144. That didn't work. Then I got short at the deep and double top on the same swing and that didn't work either. Then I waited for another double top area but we broke through that and much higher.

I didn't trade the first half hour. I just didn't see any entries and then waited for new from 9:50 to 10:05. I didn't realize that trend switched to the uptrend. It started to move up from 62% and I was pretty sure that we are gonna get to 76% before moving up even with large MACDs showing up for the most of the time.

Another tough day for me, but I'm ok with it. I'll stick with it for as long as it takes. I'm just wondering if I can make some money by the end of the week, or this is gonna be a loss.

The most disappointing thing for me that I said in my video during my third trade "If we break this top I should look for long entry" and I got short again.

yes I did it all the time until I realized deep inside I already make up my mind of what market should do. Now I just keep my mind neutral all the time and wait for market shows me some clues that I'm familiar with. No clue = nothing done.

@cory,

That is a great point and one missed by a great many. Thanks for sharing your experience as for so long I just wanted to 'force' the direction.
