Panda,

Hang tough. Scratch in the big sceem of things is pretty good. Breaking rules can have disasterous effects, so not so bad.

On your 3rd rule of 70%, is that the size of retracement after rules 1and 2 are met?

Panda,

I know I don't need to tell you this, but after a day of admitting to breaking your own rules repeatedly, ending with a scratch day is certainly a positive.

New day tomorrow my friend.....

The scratch day happened because I got hold of myself, followed the guidelines, (I don't like to call them rules) and made my money back. I did have a long that I scratched as well but I didn't like that one from the start. So I got it BE ASAP.

And you are correct, it's a new day tomorrow. And I'm looking forward to it.

Correct, it's a guideline to help find better entries with lower risk. Doesn't always happen of course but I am trying to get to where this the normal set up as opposed to the break of the break setup I've been using. The BOB setup has worked pretty well as long as I put the stop in the right place but I'd love to minimize the risk and doing this means I can see another 10-20 ticks of profit before the target zones are reached. Over all I like the idea, getting it done in real time is another matter.

Back on a winning track

Took three trades to get it done, but ended the day with a nice winning trade to get back in the saddle of winning.

I got up an hour late so missed the pre-market rally which is something I like to catch if possible, but not today. However, I am happy to have gotten my win in and I'm satisfied with it.

And as per my decision to never sit for 5 hours again, I am done for the day.

Last trading day for a week. Taking my kid to see the whales in SD on Sunday. I need the rest and sea air to clear my head. Been in a bit of a draw down/breakeven stage and it seems to me, I'm not really reading price action really well.

Only two trades today but after the last one, I just decided to call it and watch til my trading hours were up.....mark levels and see how I do.....

I rang up @indextrader7 and he gave me some encouraging words, went over my trades with me and gave me some perspective....Thank you sir.....

I spent almost 2 minutes questioning my vague knowledge of geography, thinking "I swear South Dakota is a land locked state"

Then i realized you were talking about San Diego.

It's OK, I was originally thinking he was going to watch them in standard definition.

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.
6)
