+ 1/4 net TF Oct 3


I insisted in trading before market open...must stop that.
Saw H take several stop losses before catching a wave. I guess I thought had to mimic that...and I did.

If you could post a shot of the trades you took on the trade summary that would be great too!

You opened up your stops some! Probably not a terrible idea in this market.

You kept trading which is good.

You were holding your breath it seemed once you were in your trade. Anxiety and something I do occasionally and get fixated. Sometimes I am better than at other times.

You did very good today considering! You are getting better. In my opinion I still think you spend a lot of time on that DOM.

+ 3 points TF Oct 4 2011

Sweet results today. A number of stop losses.

Thanks to Bluemele and Vovan for their recordings and advice!

I had a "ah-ha" experience last night. As clear as a bell it hit me that I must appreciate the market, respect the market, enjoy trading, and be moving forward on all fronts of life...if I am to be a successful trader.

The "ah-ha" was likely spurred by this piece distributed via email yesterday by Robert Anthony.

Opportunity in disguise?
Every action you take will either strengthen or weaken your power.

Every time you give in to any impulse, your ability to resist it
in the future becomes weaker.

Anytime you are tempted by any behavior that is in contradiction to
what you desire, you have a strengthening choice or a weakening
choice.

Instead of looking at such options as a temptation to overcome, I
want you to begin looking at those moments as opportunities. You
have an opportunity to strengthen your ability to become a
Deliberate Creator.

Think - if you make that strengthening decision just once, the pain
of it will be only very brief, but the strengthening of your
ability to make choices that will support you instead of defeat you
will last you for the rest of your life.

Say to yourself, "As I choose the strengthening decision now, I am
making myself more powerful and my life easier from this moment
on".

As you practice this way of thinking every day, these
decisions will become easier and easier because you will trust the
"Flow", as a result, you will become more and more powerful by the
minute.

HighRise,

If you like, send me a personal message and I can skype with you this weekend and I can show you some things in NinjaTrader.

I see some technical issues you are having and want to help you. No big deal if you have a handle already though.

You are getting better!!!

Good for you!

I watched your video.

Some advice. Until you get better, don't do premarket. It is too easy to get sucked in unless you are certain!

I liked your 2nd to last trade.

- 3.5 TF Oct 5 2011

Rough day. Thought I picked pivots well. I believe I did, but I got stopped out on pullbacks.

Comments:

1. What if you start the day with 1 loser instead of the winner?


2. Typically if you save your ATM strategy once with that chart, then it will pop back up. You can right click on the chart trader and select properties and there is a setting that says next to "ATM Strategy Selection Mode" --> "KeepSelectedAtmStrategyTemplateOnOrderScreen" and that will stop you from redoing it each time. (I have mine showing)

3. I have also added my ATM Strategy defaults. It goes to BE+1 after it goes positive 20 ticks and it has a chase of 1.

You had a great trade today. Good job!!!!!
