New Trading Journal

-2.1 TF today. I'm beginning a new journal on recommendation of Ed Abreu, a pro trader. He is still teaching his method while two others I followed "went out of business." Here is his recommendation and my initial entries.

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.

5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Good job today, and I noticed you are buy/ask, sell/bid.

I would be cautious on those breakouts as they always tend to have a pullback.

+ 1.4 TF Oct 27 2011

No trades yesterday. Didn't see setups. I'm a bit proud I didn't trade without setups I could see.

Today I felt confident, something new. I am keeping the goal of consistent profits in mind, or so I think I am. What does that translate into? I think it means closing the trade when you sense by indicators and intuition it's lost it's steam after a modest run. Also, no need to wait for a gift, although I'm still doing that. Again, the goal is consistent profits. I want to learn to wait out the long runs, but for now let's get consistent profits. As a pro football announcer said last weekend, "You aren't gonna' go broke taking small profits."

I agree!!!

Remember before I started my journal I pointed out some of you mistakes and I told you that I can see it because I do the same, and I told you that you are gonna see a lot of your mistakes in my trading.

I like how HighRise1202 waits for the area and bar setup. I can do it only some days. Haha...

Oct 28 = no trades


Chickened out? No, thinking of consistent profits, at least that's what I hope.

Missed double top at 9:38 Eastern Time. Darn, and I had made a note to look for double tops where the first is a day back (or more). No worry. There will be more trades. (Repeat aloud three times.)
