Did your Ninja Trader stop this morning? When I was trying to change the chart type and value no data would load.

I had to log off 2 x to solve.

I was not in front of my system yesterday, but when I got home it was still running.

@creekboy, why not create your own journal thread?

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.

Wednesday I found myself trying to tell the market which direction to go rather than it telling me.
Got caught in the chop.

this is for cme -reguarding leverage -test this on a sim that does not shut down over night-
why leverage kills all traders using multiple contracts-time posted 8:43est
using the june contracts -
go short 1 contract at 1356.50-

now allow the trade to run against you on purpose for at least


@ 1364.50 add 8 contract (ave = 1363.61)using 9 contracts

@ 1372.50 add 72 contracts (ave =71.51)using 81 contracts

@ 1380.50 add 648 contracts (ave =79.50)using 729 contracts

@ 1388.50 add 5832 contracts (ave =87.50)using 6561 contracts

so you see why leverage kills imagine 6561 contracts @ 1387.50 -every point is a 328k move

i believe this is the same principal as the grains of rice story from the nile valley
