This journal is for the March Madness trading journals.

My goal is to take $20,000 and move it to $50.000 by the end of the month, LOL!

The techniques used are outlined in the Simple Estimation Trading thread.
This means I'll use trendlines, vibration llines ($20.20) and Gann Fann.

I think I'll trade CL - the wildhorse!

I hope to have fun with it and see everyone at the finish line!
Let the games begin!


-----------
1 March +570 = $20,570 1 trade

..........
peace, love and joy to you

CL trade
Sold 109.94 Closed 109.87
I was slow off the mark on this trade and entered too late.
However, I wanted to get in the trade before the end of RTH
Here is a short video of the trade:

Friday March 2, 2012

Bought at 106.32 stopped out 105.92 loss 0.40 * 2= 0.80 = -$800
End of the day $19,770 from $20,000 initial

Video of trade

Post-op on trade
Entered one line too high and was stopped out by 11 cents from LOD 105.81
  • Traded counter-trend at wrong time of day
  • Taking a nap
Learning lessons:
  • Use the green line
  • Stay with with first instincts (which was the green line)
  • If LOD doesn't happen when expected - pass on trade

I have decided to switch away from CL.

Today I spent over 1.5 hours and it is distracting my focus.

I have realized I can only really focus on one thing - so back to ES tomorrow!

Wednesday 7 March 2012

ES trades today!
  • Narrow range expected i.e. < 12pts.
  • Est high 1355.75 Est range 9.50
  • Act high 1354.25 Act range 10.0

Summary:
Trade 1 = $512.50
Trade 2= $112.50
= $625
Total profit today = +$625
End of the day $21,005 from $20,000 initial capital on 1 March


Trade 1 - Entering the trade
Bot 3 at 1345.25 9:23:56



  • Improvements for future on't hesitate - too late = poor entry (cost 1 pt)
  • Good things: didn't take any heat after entry - all green.

Sld 2 at 1347.25 10:00:28
2pts *100 = $200

10:44 The Rider
One left - video shows potential retracement calc with time (Simple ABCD equal legs) -this estimation didn't work out.

Sld 1 at 1351.50 10:55:12
6.5 pts * 50 = $312.50

12:56 Waiting for Godot
Our estimate for the range was 9.50 in the morning. So far we have had L1344.25 and high 1325.50 or 8.25pts. This is within the range of error estimate (1.50) for the RTH daily range, meaning the high may be inplace. Therefore there would be no need for them to run it up further. This means the risk of error has increase and the pts profit potential would be small for the remainder of the day.
------

14:57 Trade 2 A little quick trade at the end of the day.
Sld 1 1352.75 at 14:55
Sld 1 1352.00 at 14:59
Bot 2 1351.50 at 15:07
1.75 * 50 =$87.5
0.50 * 50 =$25.0
Trade 2= $112.50

Conclusion:
It felt a lot more comfortable trading the ES. I am so used to it and all that it is easier to read.

07-Mar-12
Range: 10.00
Chg Rng -1.00
Mid: 1349.25
High: 1354.25
Low: 1344.25
Open: 1345.75
Close: 1353.00

Thursday 8 March, 2012

Trade1 - a wash (+$25) (see video for boring details!, LOL)
trade1 2012-03-08_1043 - aquarian_ian's library

10:45 -11:00
Endless computer prbs. Windows 7 auto-update and Ninja7 stopped working (being able to load data).
Restore to prior day and re-installed Jing and then finally found the setting to stop Jing from reducing mic volume to inaudible!! Argh!! No wonder people buy apple!

In any case, big move up in o/n session so no need for them to take out high stops - been there done that. And as normal in a big o/n upmove you get "ok were way up here - now what?" day. So the market churns around searching for a direction.

I wasn't online and charts going til 10:30 (that is 2.5 hrs after turning it on - thank-you Mr.Bill!)

So open 1360.25 down to 1357.50 double bottom (minus 2.75 to open), up to 1363.25 @ 10:52 (+5.75).
If the 3d ma of rng =10 is subtracted from 1363.25 we get 1353.25. On this rather flimsy reasoning (flimsy because we'll probably only get 8pts) I'm selling.

Trade 2
video of entry
Sld 3 1363.25 at 11:00:38
Order for 2 more at 1364.75

Thursday 8 March, 2012

Sld 3 1363.25 at 11:00:38
Order for 2 more at 1364.75
Filled 11:45:38
Average on 5 1363.85


At this time I'm thinking that perhaps it will be a Long T-top day. We have a high of 1365.50 from a FE (first end) = LE (low end) of 1357.50 at 9:12 and 9:20 giving 8 pts. With a big move in o/n the range is often smaller so 10pts initial expectation (the 3day ma) to 8pts is about right. If so I need to work myself out of this trade.

Observations:
Once I finally got on line (10:30) and missed the FE at 9:12&9:26 I should have closed up shop.
My trading rules say that if I'm not in a trade by 10am to not trade.

Mistakes:
  • not paying attention to trend and trading against it



Total all trades = -$87.50

11:01
Slept in and started late. Missed FE=LE equal L1366.50 at 8:36
1366.50+11.75=1377.25
It is dancing around the HE and could stay here most of the day.
Trading this, at this time, is - so today's trade in ES just for the contest.

I made a second trade - I guess I'm not really happy with my progress towards my goal so far.
Lots of work - little results, so I pushed it a bit.

Monday March 12, 2012

Slow start - had to update charts to Jun contract for ES
got up late 5amPT - DLS started Sunday.

8:54CT
Dir 30 up to 1367
looking like a narrow choppy day.
3dma 9.75 and on est 7.25
ADX on 2 min<20 at 9:10am = chop zone
est H=1370.50
Actual:
High: 1367.00
Low: 1360.25
Range: 6.75


A retrace 75%=1363.25
L=1363.25 @ 8:35
H=1367at 8:42

9:15CT
I'm going to try the long side:
BOT 1 at 1363.25
Orders buy 1 at 1362 and 1362.25
Coffee break--
In the trade 9:42
Before trade 1 2012-03-12_0940 - aquarian_ian's library
11:52 lots more buys and sell to close
Trade 1 =$250



Corn trade = $125
Corn trade Monday 2012-03-12_0957 - aquarian_ian's library
bot 1 654.25 at 9:46:49
Sld 1 656.75 at 9:50:56
+2.50*50=$125



Looks like the short side would have been the better way to trade ES.


12:55ct
corn trade2 = $87.50
Sld 657.75 bot 656 =1.75 * 50 = $87.50
Trade 2 Corn 2012-03-12_1244 - aquarian_ian's library

ES trade 2 = $375


ES trade 3 = $0
Es Trade 4 = $250

ES trades $250+375+$250=$875
Corn trades = $125+87.50=S212.50
Both $875+212.50=$1,087.50

Total all trades = $1,087.50
End of the day $23,132.50 from $20,000 initial capital on 1 March

End of day:
Today was a "V" day. I was slow-footed from my late start, so my big challenge is to get to bed early enough so that I can get up on time in the morning. This means stopping working sooner and "leaving it til tomorrow:.
Starting with the short side would have been the better way to trade ES today.

Re Thursday,

Jing not working.
Couldn't get futures.io (formerly BMT) to load to post result.
In any case, it got to 1397.50 exactly but I missed exiting the trade while posting.
I came back down - so CAR was right and right without me!
Closed at buy price = wash trade result =$0

He was born in Comilla District (now in Bangladesh), in a remote village named Dhamti. He won the 1952 Mr. Universe - Group III championship. He is also a three-time Asian Games gold medalist in body building. Being only 4 feet 11 inches (1.50 m) tall, he was given the name "Pocket Hercules". His chest measured 54 inches (140 cm) with a waist of 23 inches (58 cm). He currently lives in Kolkata.
From childhood he was interested in strength related sports, such as wrestling, weight-lifting, etc..
At the age of 12, due to a sudden attack of black-fever, his health broke down. However he regained his strength by physical fitness exercises. He started bodybuilding exercises such as push-ups (earlier known as dips), pull-ups (known as chinning), squats, crunches (sit-ups). He used to do only free-hand exercises with thousands of repetitions in every set.

Aich in 1952


Manohar was first introduced to weight-training when he joined the Indian Air Force (then known as Royal Air Force) during 1943. But by that time he had built his structure with hard work and thousands of repetitions of freehand exercises. Due to his physique, he was highly praised by the then British officials in the Royal Air Force.
In 1950, at the age of 37, Manohar won the Mr. Hercules contest. In 1951, he stood second in the Mr. Universe contest. In 1952, he won the Mr. Universe title. He also won the World Championship of Spring Pulling by tearing a spring of 275 pounds tension. In 1955, he stood third in the Mr. Universe contest. In 1960, he stood fourth in the Mr. Universe contest at the age of 47 years.
A few of his tricks involved squats with 300 kilograms (660 lb), demonstrating muscle control, and tearing 1500 page books. He has toured all over the world for bodybuilding shows, and has been widely acclaimed for his strength and muscle control.

Congratulations on your journal!



In the spirit of our March Trading Journal contest, I am asking everyone to spend a few minutes and share their journaling experience.

A) What are the top five benefits you have seen as a result of regularly posting in this journal?

B) What are the top five problem areas you have identified as a result of regularly posting in this journal?

C) Were you initially reluctant to start this trading journal? If yes, why?

D) How do you feel, overall, about your journaling experience?

E) Would you recommend to others that they should also start a trading journal?

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. I appreciate your posts, and I hope you have benefited from your journal. I also know that others will benefit as well, just by reading about your own experiences.

Enjoy your weekend,
Mike
