@bluemele I've seen a couple of her videos. She did really well.

Sometimes I feel like I stuck on this stage and I'm not sure when I can move further. Sometimes I even think that I'll never be profitable. Like you said it's not in my DNA. But this is not an attitude I need. I have to break though this stage.

Tomorrow another day! Let's make it right from now on!!!!

I agree. I have felt that a great many times, but not today. I have had a terrible week and a half of trading, but every trader does and to have 'perfection' is highly unrealistic.

Your trading is quite good, but I honestly wouldn't set any expectations for consistent profitability until it comes and clicks. Not saying you are, but that has been my biggest problem as I am at heart competative (used to be!) and struggle with perfectionism. The key to me is to let go of what others think, believe and just 'let go' and accept the good trading. I have now gone through probably 6 or 7 down periods through my trading and I believe with each one I grow substantially.

So, my current mentality (thanks to my wife) is to 'appreciate' this time and learn from it! This is why I am SIM and until I can make 2-3 points daily consistently. It may take me 2 months to 10 years, but I am ok with either. I would prefer somewhere in-between and closer to 2 months!

5 trades today, but not because I broke my rule. I didn't see order at first time and pressed it again.

Not really proud of today's trading, but I'm disappointed either. I just can't believe that we were still moving higher.

I could make my money on my second trade (third), but I moved my stop to BE+1. Would I just wait another few seconds.

It seems like every time I move my stop it takes me of and go without me, but when I keep it on place it takes me out anyway.

Here is my video:

Another choppy up mess day in my opinion. These are the market conditions that change so much that will have you gift gift gift.

This is the point I make so often and to me in these times you have to change the way you interpret the MACD's. That upsets everyone in Henry's camp. But you do see now what I am talking about how market conditions can change and really screw with your head. Especially if your setup ("the foot") works 1 out of 4.

That long was nice! I caught exactly the same move, but I was impatient and gave a couple gifts getting into it. That could have been all we needed to do today. haha...

Hindsight... Just a hunch, but I feel like (from historicals) that we are revisiting 2008. Big down, sharp up, then big down again and October/November are known to be volatile. Should be an interesting ride, but hopefully nothing like this for the next couple months!

Finally I made some profit!

It was kinda tough day for me again.

Bad luck on the first trade. I took me out by a tick and moved up for 3+ points. I could get 2 points out of it easily and be done for today.

It was hard for me to get in because of the long bars. I tried to get on very top on my second trade. I was afraid that if I wait for that bar to close it's gonna be too low to get in. So it moved little bit higher and then in my direction.

On my third trade I had target at double top but I moved it higher because looking at MACDs I thought it's gonna go higher. So instead of 3+ points I got 2. I'm fine with that on because I know that it's not possible to get max profit every time.

Then I got short and got out at my target.

Here are my trades and summary:

Good job!

My entries were not so good and a 5 tick stop in this environment is tough ESPECIALLY when you don't pay attention to your MACD's!

Pretty choppy morning, but could make some $$$.

I could stop after second trade with +1.2 points, but I chose to risk it for more profit.

It's alright trading for me. I enjoyed watching MACDs. Some times I think that I read them wrong and today it was little bit different. I feel like my vision for MACDs have formed already and it's little bit off. I have to fix that.

Here are my trades and summary:



My weekly summary doesn't look so great, but I can fix that if I trade right for the next few weeks.

I have rarely seen days like this. It is especially tough in my eyes.

I was up 1 tick for the day!

I caught a long. Ran out of time to trade today a bit.

These conditions are the worst that I have seen in 2 years of trading this system. I am still SIM and I did a good job of holding my stops with one error.

You just missed that last nice short.

The trendlines were matching up beautifully today albeit for such a rangy day.

Really disappointed in myself today!

I took first short. I got filled really low and I moved my stop to 5 ticks. It took me put by a tick and ran down.

Then 4181 was on the rail down, but I took 3 longs against it. I told myself on Friday that I should not take any trades against large MACDs and I did it again. I got exited about separation at 1597 and got chopped in pieces.

Here are my trades and summary:
