Yes, I'm on SIM after being off four days.

Heard that TF was going below 800. Then to a new high. So I was looking for a short and caught it (4 points). However, I had a big stop loss (2.9 points!) on the first late entry for a short.

I thought about the successful trading I had while travelling. I had used only a 144 and a 512 tick chart, plus Fibs. I decided to try and keep it simple today. Perhaps it was an easy trading day. I was relaxed and easily admitted my errors. I am also concentrating on reading the market well and not trying to be “smart” (an Achilles heel of mine) and outsmart the market. I fell for a few shakeouts.

You did pretty good in my opinion. I had a feeling it was going long and it cost me....

Way to stick to your guns. Losing on days like this is almost a given.

Must follow trading plan. Must follow trading plan. First trade was not in area. Second trade was good. Could have stopped with 1 point profit for the day...but NOOO. Even though indies said this is a incongruous day, I kept on and over traded. Video save failed again.

I followed my trading plan. Should be simple to do.

Now what am I gonna' do for the rest of the day? Simple; do other things plus study past charts and practice applying my trading plan. May I look at other methods? Yes, especially those of the wise and experienced in this forum. But I won't use those methods until they are written into my trading plan. Simple, isn't it? No, it's not.

I used my audible alert today with success. It's called Priceguard.

I took one trade during my regular period, the first hour. I don't want to trade longer. However, I know some sweet opportunities may arise later. So I used Priceguard. It sounded a half hour later. I came and checked out the situation. There was a good trading op and I earned 2.5 more points. Sweet.

My first trade was at area with nice head + shoulders. I didn't look for a pullback. A lightening-fast pullback took me out. I was actually impressed by the move, even being part of the herd.

The second trade was also from an area. A 2-bar reversal and bulges over 440 and 610 said, “Come on!” The trade went OK. Have a great weekend. (My advice for having a great weekend is to do something special on Friday night.)
