PowerBroker, I suggest you try to focus more on your journal and trading. I have renamed the thread to "PowerBroker's journal".

Keep the BS posts to a minimum and don't make posts just for the sake of raising your post count.

Mike

Quoting 
There are much easier ways to make money than from trading.

I just read this in a thread where the thread was about those who make it and those who do not. ie. 98/2..

Was doing a chart review today of some winning and losing charts.. This one was a really nice day so I thought I would put it up. I WAS using a 21 T3 MA I have since switched it to 21 EMA.

It is automatic, nothing from me.

When you quote a person, use the Quote button which will retain the important info such as the username of the person you quoted, and the pointer to the reference post you are quoting. You seem to be quoting using some other method and it removes both of these items, making it unknown who you are quoting.

I am not sure what you mean Mike. When I bring up the reply box there is a quote function at the top that's what I am using.

Concerning risk per trade sizing



I just read this whole thread and have to say that there are some very very intelligent people in here.

Risk sizing on a small underfunded account can be tricky. If it's 3k say at 2% that's like 60. So 6 ticks +/- a fraction. In following my own advice "Trade smart OR JUST DON'T TRADE" I have decided to just stay out now until I can recap with funds which will enable me to have better money management.

I plan to now move to the next level and perhaps hire a private mentor and spend my money that way instead just blowing it in the market when I can be making it with the right training. 2.5 years of self taught work, sim some online mentoring. Now it's time to make the next move.

I only have 6 days left now with my live charts then I need to get another demo if I can. I am on mirus now. Anyone have any suggestions? I am open.

Click quote button next to post, not 'post reply' at bottom.
