11/22/2011 trades

today PNL 2600

a good day. my holding of 2 6E long finally gave me reward. as seen from previous 30 min 6E chart, I was expecting a good run up and it came.

trade a few CL for quick profits.

30 min 6E still not yet break the triangle type pattern. Pink 51 still doing a pivotal box. many scalping opportunities on lower time frame.

Welcome back.



Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

this is my own method it incorporated the following:
DOW theory
Elliot wave
Supply and demand levels

To me, it is much better than any other methods. For example, this week I made total 45000 profit by day trading and scalping. a sample trade summary from one account is here:

methodology

Starfill,
Have you thought of teaching your method to others ? or writing some general broad line information and rules ? How to synchronize the Dow Theory with Elliott wave ?
Thanks

Hi, thanks for your interest.

I actually taught one local guy just to test my system to see if it is replicable to to others because I feel this is a semi mechanical and very clear rule-based. He is doing well now.

I will write some general line information on my system in the following days.

attached is my trading summary for today from 2 accounts
