Way too much over-trading in my opinion.

If you miss a two trades, I mean they fail in a row you got to check your mind and system. After 4 failed shut it down till next day...


Easier said than done but, you've got to change!!!

Keep it up!!!

Be calm ...

Don't you think it has to do with the size of your stops though also? I agree precision is key, but my guess it that you keep larger stops?

5 ticks stop doesn't make sense to me now. Yes you risk less money, but your trade depends on your entry. If I start doing 5 ticks stop again it's gonna limit a lot of my entries. It's very challenging for me to get in the trade 4 ticks max from the pivot.

Vovan,

You talk about the 5 min alot ...

Take a close look at the range on that it can be at times close to 2 or 3 plus pts at times...

Goodluck...

"Yeah, well, you know, that's your opinion, man..."

Yes, no doubt, this market deserves 1 point stops. I do not argue that! haha... But if you are really good, a couple ticks is all you need. It is all relative I guess.

Too bad I didn't see that short coming! It was a doozy.

Yeah! I think that's all relative. If you can get right on the pivot 5 ticks is the way to go. I prefer to give it some room in case it wants to retest high/low.

Here is my video BTW:

Just watched my video and It wasn't so horrible. Couple of my trades had nice MFE, I just didn't take the profit. I guess I was waiting for bigger runs. I had at least to trail my stop and take some of it. Oh well...

Agree. You just had the direction wrong. It happens. But, you hung in there, you corrected and held and you made what you needed.

+2.2 points

Only two trades today!

Market seems really choppy today. At least for now. I tried to go short first time just to test the area. Second entry gave me some profit and I'm done. I don't want to risk it today. All I need is 2-3 points a day, after that I just gonna mark entries. I decided to go this way because that's really what I need. I have to reach my goal day to day and then if I see that I can reach it almost everyday I can try to raise the bar if I need to.

Here are my trades and summary:

BTW My 4181 was set at 6E. Haha... No wonder why it looked so different.

A lot of points could have been made just off wedge trendlines! Who knew right.

Pretty confusing on small time charts, but large timeframe pretty clear. I think it is headed up actually but we will see.
