A Corporate Slave's Quest for Freedom: Trading Crude Oil Futures with Price Action
Please join me on this arduous quest to free myself of the shackles I wear, as a denizen of one of the 10 most profitable companies in the world, yet nothing but a mercilessly tortured corporate slave. In the face of never ending layoffs, workload increases, and insulting pay, I dream to be forever free of this misery, and financially dependent on no one but myself. Please join me on the undertaking of this journey as I learn and grow here among fellow traders.
My goals and focus for the time being are to build discipline, develop consistency in following my plan, and dutifully exercise proper risk management techniques as I improve my trading skills.
I will update this post with my trading experience, plan, and journal of trades.

I very much agree with your sentiments. Corporatism no longer has loyalty to the country. I was stuck in a small company where "insultingly" I found out newer hires were overall paid more than I was yet we were always lied to about being paid the same. Some of my tasks in IT was to "spy" on other emails for managers to steal new sales hires for their contacts then they would boot them. Another was to automate more aspects of production which ended up with laying off of people I was friendly with. Anyways, sentiments expressed, I assume you mean by joining in your quest is to be merely observers of your journal?
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?
