Hey Sharmas,
it seems like your are mastering your ideas..
Speaking about the levels.. are they inspiration of VK teachings?
The secret sauce seems very powerful! Have you had yet a loosing trade?

Bbsky
on the side note; did you get my messages?

Overall i am running at 18 winners and 3 small loss

The system allows me to cut my loss short and re enter

VK is the King Kong and i cant be half the trader he is. He has taught me a lot about Algos,discipline,and never to over trade.Have a daily goal and once you achieve it, close the monitor and go enjoy life...

He is the master and i owe a huge amount to him. As for his Algos and my levels...they are totally different.

I work out the levels on bi weekly basis and his levels are on daily basis. VK finished last 10 days with over 40k.

I will be so happy if i made that in 6 months and hope you can see the huge gap between us.

I pick my trades with the help of the secret sauce and i only take 1 or 2 trades per day. I let the price come to my levels and then i take the trades with the institutional traders move.


Sharmas
p.s yes i did and will come back to you soon my friend.

I am normally asleep when US opens as our time difference is huge.

I wanted to test my new improved secret sauce method and plus use my ES levels


Here it is and the target of 2167.75 nicely hit and my BEST night ever...


Sharmas

This is my third trade and i took 2 shorts in CL and and the Long in ES...

Update...ES hits the level 2168.00 and bounces off it...Always best to take the profit with a tick or two less to get filled.

Hi Sharmas,
when you say you wait for the week to close and the levels are calculated on weekly and bi-weekly, do they last for all days of the following week? or you keep calculating on daily basis for the next trading day looking at week and bi-week?
Thank you,
Bbsky

Hi Bbsky

These levels were calculated on Sunday and they are still valid and i use it the way i have shown in other charts but with my secret sauce set up.They haven't changed and the trade i took yesterday was off the level and the top of the day was perfect with my trade and ES bounced off that level and went down massively last night



And will be looking at the levels today to validate the set ups going into tomorrow and Fridays trading.

Was busy with tomorrow's event and saw the beautiful LONG but was few ticks late.

Secret Sauce confirmed it and took the long ...Got paid.

Haven't had a chance to do the levels for ES

Hi Sharmas,
I'm assuming it's real account congratulations on your results (no offence intended). May I ask why 3mins charts? It seems to me like a lot of people use non time based charts for very volatile products like CL.

Again, great work/trades

Yes this is my Live account trades
For last many years have done paper trading and blew few accounts may be more

Finally learnt the trick of the trade and now using 3 minute time based chart as have found better success

My problem has been that I went to Bar charts and then to unirenko and with unirenko I had 4 different set ups

What I found that the unirenko did not give me the correct price levels and hence why minute chart

I do use my 30 minutes as my guide but 3 minutes has given me much better result

As for CL I have found based on my levels it behaves very well around it and it has enabled me to get into trades with confidence and hits my daily goal with either 1 or 2 trades per day

Thanking you for reading and writing on my journal

Here is the view of ES levels that was worked out last week on Sunday after the market closed on Friday or my Saturday

Why did the market trade around these levels and why did the market know where to trade to and trade off.

Is this magic or known levels that institutional traders trade.

Had a great long weekend to get some much needed R&R
but seems like i needed to come back to get R&R here....

Lets see what the market delivers tonight and this week.

Levels marked and secret sauce is working its magic.

I am super tired and have been up most of the night as wanted to see if my strategy that i created over the weekend is going to bring home the goods

I entered 12 contracts at 39.97 and got my target hit at 40.85 and making this the BEST EVER trade for me


The levels worked like MAGIC ...

Here are the levels and the chart.

I took 88 ticks with 12 contracts yesterday and my best night ever.

88 x 12 = 1056 ticks and this equals $10,560.00 before commissions.

After this trade it feels like i dont want to take another trade.

But this is business and the door must be reopened and a new day starts today.

Heh, after a 10K profit day, you can keep the door of the business closed for another day. (And start thinking of marketing that special sauce!) Nice work!

I am a trader and if I venture into selling, i will be hopeless at it.

I will remain a trader and enjoy my winnings with my losses as they come.

Lets see what the day offers today/tonight

Here is the view of my chart and how did the levels work out last night.

Two trades last night and both off 39.67 as the system called it.

Took it and got paid well.


Gaining alot of confidence and now trading seems easier than before and we always make it over complicated.

Believe in your system and pull the trigger when you are called to take action.

Manage your trade and take profit when you are heading towards the daily Highs or Lows.

Sharma,

I see you hold trades into one if your levels with a target above. What gives you the confidence that the first level won't hold and the target gets hit. Also, I see most of your trades are longs even though CL is trending down. Does the method produce shorts?

I use the secret sauce and that gives me the confidence where the market potentially can go.

Levels workout and in many cases it is level to level.

Yes i do get shorts, however so far it has worked out for Long due to the time i normally trade.

Yes CL is trending down, however I trade based on my set up and trend on my chart. The system shows how the market will or could move and i take advantage based on that

Nice trade and stress free what i am enjoying now.

14 x 29 ticks = 406 ticks

Do i get greedy and want more and than get stopped out.

As soon as i let go of all the fancy indicators and focused on two things

The Levels and trend, things fell in place for me.

Why does the market turn from a certain level and why does it go to a certain level. Why and how does so many institutional traders know where to trade from and then to trade to.

We need to look at this market differently to what we have been taught. I am not selling anything and i am no marketing guru either.

But we need to look at this market differently.

Get a naked chart and start reading and understanding the chart... Look at it as to when and where it turned.

Sharmas,

I think you are 100% correct when you say to abandon indicators and use levels and price. You ask a good question about the levels where price reacts. What is your answer to that question.

Since you don't want to divulge what your "secret sauce" is which helps you enter a trade, what alternative can the rest of us use? Is the secret sauce something you developed, or is it something you have obtained from a third party? If it's a third party can you let us know who that is so that we can investigate getting the secret sauce as well?

One of the big questions I always have for myself is which level will hold and which level will break. Taking a trade at some level or support and resistance isn't enough to warrant a trade. Do you look at levels from a higher time frame and if you see the price action change trend on your 3 minute it validates a trade?

Any advice or assistance is greatly appreciated.

David

@David_R

I dont use Support and Resistance and i have only 2 charts...My 30 min and my trading chart which is 3 minutes

I work out my levels at the end of the trading week and re look at it and rework it on Wednesdays.

I dont use FIBS but i use FIBS tool in Ninja to mark my levels on my 30 mins chart. My secret sauce is in my 30 mins chart and that gives me the certain levels that is bit more than the levels you see in my 3 min chart

I am trying to be as open as possible without giving away too much.

Yes i have had a lot of PMs asking for who the provider is of this secret sauce. All i can say is its not a company or vendor.

Its been a hard work to get to where i am today . And yes i have learnt from few great traders and mentors....


I do all the leg work and may be this is why i have confidence in the system as its not dependent on someone else calling the trades for me.

I know you want to hear bit more but for time being this is all i am willing to share.


I sincerely apologies to all other members who have contacted me but i haven't been able to get back to them. I have been so focused on getting this right that i run out of time.

Thanking you all for reading my journal and appreciate all the feedback,support and questions.

Sharmas,

Thanks for the reply.

Do you take most of your trades in what's the overnight for the US or during the US day session.

Yes due to our massive time difference I do trade overnight but the biggest paradigm shift in our thinking I want people to think and use in their trading is when does the market open and when does the market close

Here is the biggest challenge as based on when they think the market opens and use the chart session and try to workout the levels and Highs and Lows

But does it really operate like what we have been taught

Nice trade #2 for the day and both short trades

14 x 60 ticks = 840 ticks

Do i get greedy and want more and than get stopped out.

So far today 2 trades with 14 contracts each

406+840=1,246 ticks
1246 x 10.00 = $12,460.00

Hi,

When you speak about the open and the close of the market, are you referring to the RTH times or the ETH times?

Thank you

Yes and no...

I cant give too much away but i will suggest you get a naked 30 minute chart and look at the last 90 days to see how the market has worked itself.

You should see a pattern and it will be like huh moment

Friends

Please note i am posting my charts and my trades not to be boastful but to share and inspire fellow traders to look deeper into their charts.

Let go of all the fancy lagging indicators and cross of MAs and MACDs.

The real proof is in Price Action and Levels that Institutional Traders look at.

If i was allowed to then i would happily share the secret sauce but for now i am only sharing my charts and where i entered took profit.

I will answer any questions you ask without giving away too much.

Once again I thank each one of you for stopping by my journal and checking it out.

You have been asked nicely before.

Why dont you share your trades and may be ask Ninja Trader to employ you as a development specialist.

I show my trades and you are most welcome to believe anything and everything you want to.

Enjoy the journal but stop writing in it, please. Unless you have something positive and meaningful to contribute.


Remember....this

2 April is a Saturday and this is the first time I see a crude chart with trades taken on a Saturday!

Sharmas you are self promoting your scam business and should be banned from this forum!



When you couldnt even see where i am based and you for the first time in your life saw trades taken on Saturday

This hole journal is just fishy, secret sauce????

You made $12,460 on a simulator so end result is still $0,00.

IŽam very familiar with NT so why are you still trading from a simulator?

Traders,

Sorry to spoil the party.

Yikes Itzhak, could you post your latest picture in a larger format? I've tried every-which-way to make it larger to see, but the pic is too small and the resolution goes to naught when expanding to see the chart.

But this is Sharmas's journal anyway. We want Sharmas we want Sharmas, gabba gabba hey!

What's the difference if it's sim or real? @sharmas is showing his trades in real time.

Serif, man, we are doing the best we can with what we have. There is nothing else we can do. And we try to share the moves with others to help expand ideas, concepts of trading, possibilities. Don't be one of those stodgy punks that says "If it is Sim it is fake."

If you search for my journal, you will see my attempts since April 16th of this year to make it work with 75K in an account. If you look though the trading logs (and no, nothing was deleted from those logs, I do not cheat), you will see the progress I have made or not made, my basic ideas, and the results of my ideas. Sharmas is doing the same thing in this journal. There has been some argument here about how sim affects live, yes, but I am now a living example of it. I am in a single MGC short contract at a terrible price in Dec. We'll see how it plays out, and if my trading plan will work. But I chose Dec because that is the farthest month out my data feed is providing me GC data.

Now that I see through the broker statements what is actually involved in holding overnight, I am ecstatic, because many questions have been laid to rest. And they are all in my favor.

So please don't poo-poo on Sharmas's journal. He is doing the best he can with what he has.

In fact, that gives me an idea...Hrmm...Posting a redacted live account statement about holding overnight. If I can become profitable, people can follow along. If I lose it all, people can follow along as well. But what the hey, it may give ideas. Sorry Sharmas for what may seem like a hijack. It's not intended to be so, I just had an epiphany and had to type.

I need my sleep

Yes it is Friday 8.00 am


For someone in here it will be like no way it cant be Friday as where i am its Thursday so looks like Sharmas has scammed it again by changing the world clock.


I will try to answer the posts in here but do i need to spend time to go over

I have 2 things that i use

My levels and these are calculated on Saturday after the Market close and i do another calculation on Wednesday

Other is my secret sauce that tells me potentially where the market could or may go.

I show my trades in real time and not cook it up after the event.

Like most of us

This is my journal where I share my thoughts and trades

Either you like it or not

I am not selling anything and there are millions of different ways to trade but one needs to get comfortable with what they can be consistent with and what gives me better results

Yes I have tried them all and used most of it

This method works for me and I am so far pretty pleased with it

I am not asking you @IzhakHaim to be happy for me but I can tell you since using my journal and posting my trades I believe I am Accountable to one person and that is ME

I trade for a living and not to come here and play games

Sharmas

If the account cannot be audited by 3rd party it does not have any value as trading results. Just read all the news clips about so many money managers ponzi deals and how they even send out "monthly statements" to clients.

If you do not see posting done at time of open a trade and a later post closing it with time stamps and prices on both,......

Wake up.

He's not trying to sell something.

He's not a vendor trying to promote sales

Guys
I will not be a call provider and I will never ever become a vendor and you all know how hard I have been with certain vendors.

I am taking live trades and like I said I have blown a few too many accounts

I have gone back to basics and started with zero indicators and over a period have worked to improve my levels and spent over 9 months with it

Then I came across the secret sauce and with those two things together has given me the success that I always thought was a possibility but I wasn't able to achieve them.

I will keep posting and writing on my journal if you guys will allow me too

My levels change and yes they are of equal values but there are never the same level from week to week

If I will try use gif for next time I post my charts as some of you find it difficult to read

I am here to learn and capture my thoughts and share as much as I can

funny you say "I am a small trader
Like most of us"

You show us how you take $2000-and way up daily from the market.The best way is not to copy/paste your chart, just post: Buying now CL @123.45 and later Sold now CL for 123.67 This is real time (live or sim does not matter) to see if your sauce is still good or got some mold in it and is not for us to eat anymore... Real time calls with time stamps. Not after the fact pictures.

Itzhak, what are you on about? Copy-pasting of charts? I'll try to deflect you from messing in Sharmas's journal by posting my latest live results in my own journal. Leave Sharmas alone please. I'll give it to you as best I can. I cannot proffer live account results like my sim results were, because it is a brand-new journal, and it is still a learning process.

Sharmas's "special sauce" is a tongue-in-cheek thing. But it is a thing, and it is working for him. So bugger off about the sauce, Itzhak, you don't get it.. Thanx.

Stand by.

If you put it that way then I will share my wisdom

I have found that only stupid people stop learning and if you see I have been here on BMT for a long time and I do spend time to read other people's journal and always respect their journey

We never stop to learn and create and re create and with that our thought patterns change

You see what I have been making lately and have you stopped for a minute and asked how much has this guy lost and how many sleepless nights he must have put into this

I have a number of other business interests and when I get my teeth into something I give it 100% and always look at things from many different angles

And do you think large players in the market sit in front of their computers and take trades like us

They have Algos and they take trade so the sooner we learn to see how and where the institutional traders are interested in and how they move the market the sooner we start to have a better view

And when I say my secret sauce it's not an indicator but a Algo that is based on Price action and it shows me my potential trades and potential profit levels

Why do you think I took my profit in CL at 40.47 level and what happened after that and where did the market go

Why and one needs to keep asking WHY

Sharmas

I just updated my own journal page Izhak, with live results. If you wish to teethe on something, teethe on that. We're for real man, not just some "Johnny-come-latelys". We're bearing our breasts here. Go take a look, and come to your own conclusions, yeah?

The trade so far...

Night is long and yes i can take the profit of 20 ticks and be done for the night

10 x 20 ticks is not bad.


Showing last nights trade and the profit was taken at 40.47 and right after that the market turned around and made a new high of 42.08


aiming for 41.28 as profit but have locked in 20 ticks per contract profit.

A secret vendor then i must be better than FBI

Mike

I have been here for 6 years and i am not a vendor and i am affiliated to anyone.

The people who have complaint need to front up if they are even 10% MAN.

I dont know that i should laugh at this or feel pity to those people.

There are few people who have asked me to share my method and are willing to pay me but i have made it very clear i am on BMT/ FIO as a member and will remain as a member.

Mike, yes we all know out there are people and than there are those people. I am not a vendor and i am willing to put my house on the line for you my friend.

Show me one evidence that i am a vendor, heck i am still learning and will continue to learn and share as much as i can on this forum.

As they say people front up with the evidence or just take the back seat and enjoy the show.

After all the fun i had in last 2 days where my journal has been thrashed to pieces and now i have been made the secret agent.

Man i always want to be FBI and may be not in real life, but i got that tag here. Whoever you people are, love you to bits.

This is how the levels got respected last night.

Are these random lines and did i not put these levels before the start of the session.


I will share the levels but not show my daily trades as it has certainly made people jealous and for them to drop so LOW in their lives that they have promoted me to a vendor.

@Big Mike

Do you want access to my private messages on this forum as I am happy to provide you with all the PMs that I have received and replied to

When you have nothing to hide then you simply don't have any issues with providing any supporting documents

Or may be I should like Donald Trump seek the help of Russians to find those emails

Let me know how you want to proceed as I have values and don't want this allegation hanging around my neck

Sharma,

I would encourage you to continue doing what you are doing. Post chats and trades. It's your journal. If people don't like what they see they don't have to read it.

I don't usually partake in these discussions about someone's motives for posting profits/trades/videos. However, some of us have been on this futuresio for a while and have seen it all.

I think some people are being unreasonable by dismissing some other members' inquiry into Sharmas' motives. I remember one journal in particular that was a very good journal by VinceVirgil. He was posting videos of his trades everyday and then one member started questioning Vince's motive. I watched that member being called a hater and all sorts of names when he asked about the journal. What ended up happening, VinceVirgil started directing BMT members to his twitter and youtube channels. Martha Chiriboga is another user that comes to mind that was posting "suspiciously" on her journal. People called her out and she ended up trying to sell her trading services when she had never traded live (I know this for sure that she had never traded live)

There are members on here that post their trades and have not seen any suggestion of them being vendors or trying to lure futuresio members to buy their system. Folks like @Inletcap have started very informative threads here on BMT and has never been asked if he is selling anything. WHY? Because he hasn't shown any signs of trying to lure folks to anything.

When you start having phrases like "secret sauce" and posting huge profits yet you won't say what you are doing, how can members not be "suspicious" It's the tone of your posts that makes some members ask that questions and I wish other members could stop with the attacks on someone who is just asking if you are a vendor or not. Again, no-one has asked @Inletcap if he's selling anything because "vendorish" key words are not in his posts. Sorry for the long post but I wanted to say my 2 cents because I've seen this before and I remember at that time thinking, "I wonder what will happen if VinceVirgil ends up being a vendor after convincing several readers of his thread that he wasn't going to be and everyone yelling at that one member who asked the questions."

I enjoy reading your posts and please keep up the good work. Only you know what your motives for these posts are. Hopefully it's just a journal for you and not marketing ploy for your vendor endeavors.

Anyone that sends me nasty PM is wasting their time because I am not going to engage.

Cheers,

Kulu

Sharmas, I think I've found the niggly bit people are taking issue to. I had to go back in the thread a bit to find the following...

"...Yes many of you have contacted me but i will never be able to share the 'secret sauce" method and as for the levels it will be shown on the chart.

How is it worked out will also be a secret..."


That is from this post 2 or so weeks ago...



When you say "how it is worked out will be kept secret" doesn't jive. So some folks may deem that to be an ulterior motive, since it causes them to want to ask you in PM about the "secret sauce".

I thought the sauce thing was a jokey lark on your part when I briefed through the thread. But now that I see you have used that expression in many instances for so long in your journal, even I am taken aback a little. It does seem a bit provocative.

Hey, don't get me wrong, I appreciate the work you have done in your journal, and while I do not understand your methods, I take them for what they are...YOUR particular methods for setting levels. I don't think anybody could ever appropriate someone else's methods and be successful, because every trader is different. It is great for reference and to give ideas, but those who try to duplicate exactly would probably not succeed.

I would suggest you give up the "secret sauce" and spill the beans. That may alleviate you from the pressure you might be feeling from the public voice.

I directed a currently-banned user to my own journal link a couple days ago, which you have visited IIRC. There was, and is, no "secret sauce" to it. I have mentioned in the thread that the only subjective parts about it are intuition, a basic understanding of Fibbos over a very long term, and the ability to weather the storm. I am sure many traders find it unwieldy, maybe even "cowboying" a trade. But it is the plan I have come up with. But I have no "secret sauce", I simply tell it like it is, good or bad, how I interpreted the charts, and the ongoing and end results.

Consider it please. Do what you can to assuage the posting public that you are not a vendor, if you truly are not one, hiding under a guise of having magic. Share the magic, because nobody else will be able to do exactly what you do with your sauce, no matter how hard they try. So it shouldn't affect your trading at all.

(P.S. Ohhh man, you ain't gonna' like what I had to do after my latest sim CL position to keep me from being distracted when I went live (still in that MGC as of close today. Up like 20t, yay). The trade will hopefully close out by Monday morning, have a ~60t target. Once the live trade closes out, I'll post the severe CL damage. It was, like, a lot.).

My 3 cents.

I hear you and take your point

If I posted the charts with my many years of losses will people question my motive then.

This is my journal and I am documenting my trades and thoughts and yes I do get asked questions so does that make me a vendor or that I must have motives

Why can't people simply live with the fact this is my journal and I can write and show my method.

As for sharing Yes if I do that I will be accused of being a vendor and I don't even know of a vendor who uses the levels and prepared to show the levels in open like I have done

I ask nothing but Big Mike to complete his investigation as to which and there are few as per Mike that I have directed them to a site

And I am pretty sure those people are reading this journal and all I ask if you are a real man then show the proof here on my journal that I have directed you to a particular vendor that sells the method that I am using and showing in my journal

As for the Vendors as I have openly supported few on this forum and will continue to support the ones that have been honest and only through my own experience

I really appreciate those members who have been supportive and for that I will be ever so grateful to you and you all know who you are

Thank you

After all the fun i had in last 2 days where my journal has been thrashed to pieces and now i have been made the secret agent.

Man i always want to be FBI and may be not in real life, but i got that tag here. Whoever you people are, love you to bits.

This is how the levels got respected last night.

Are these random lines and did i not put these levels before the start of the session.


I will share the levels but not show my daily trades as it has certainly made people jealous and for them to drop so LOW in their lives that they have promoted me to a vendor.


Sharmas

If you want to dispel all the rumors, why don't you just share "the secret sauce"? Otherwise, what's the point in posting "teaser screen shots" every day? Originally, when I joined back in 2009, the forum was all about sharing; helping other traders to succeed.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

I am not worried about the secret sauce but I do take exception to that I have directed people to a vendor

I will leave it here as its been tough few days in the office and has taken me away from my trading

From today I won't share or show and will come and update my journal when I feel like it. It took me years to get back into my journal and I still believe journaling your trades and thoughts is a great teacher.

I am not a vendor and have not asked anyone to go to any site or have even slightly indicated them to a vendor that sells this method

Heck I would love to find out who else uses my method

And @TheWizard we go a long way and we have shared a lot of ideas together and for that I greatfull to you

Sharmas

Unless @Big Mike fronts up with details it's not point in going on about this

Hi Sharmas and all fellow members,
I've been following this journal with interest and I do have post too asking question to Sharmas.
I've found this journal very inspiring and matter of fact thanks to this journal and a method that I'm currently following I came up with my own levels calculated differently than Sharmas but very accurate indeed. So for that alone I'm grateful to Sharmas.
I'm one of the the member that asked Sharmas about is mentor for the "secret sauce" and he has not direct me anywhere but as a good educated person he just acknowledge my message.
Again I want to say that Sharmas HAS NOT DIRECT ME TO ANY VENDOR. So as far for me is very clean and I appreciate his honesty and time to put his stuff in this forum and I really wish he'll keep posting.

Yes jealousy makes people strange.. Just take what he is posting and live the guy alone!!!

Sharmas please keep posting and as for private messages feel free to use what I've sent you.

Thanks again to you and Big Mike to stay on top of this great community!

@Serif
You can say whatever you want as its a direct reflection of your IQ
First get to know your world clock and if you ever went to a school you'd know it's Saturday night where I am
Second I shared my experience and is that wrong as I owe a lot to VK and his teaching and he opened my eyes to Algos and levels

Third I have asked you not to write in my journal, either you are someone else pretending to be Serif as your mission on this forum has been to follow me and keep repeating I am promoting and being a scam

Come out clean as to what is your method why not show us your chart

Do I go and be annoying or disrespect to another member as seems like you have become my number one fan.... Not

And I bet you are one of those members who complained and be a man and show the proof or simply Shut up

Sharmas

This thread is just too suspicious, if you look at this thread:



You can clearly see that Sharmas is promoting kongzanatrading and if you look at page 9 from his journal again several times, kongzanatrading, then post 208 again kongzanatrading. There was a post from him where he wrote that he was late in the room but I cannot find it any more, probably because he edit the post.

If you take this into account and the fact that he is just trading from a simulator with a large contract size just too show big DOLLAR signs , then yes he is just promoting himself or someone else.

I have asked him why he was trading from a simulator but I never got an answer from him, instead an angry replay.

@Big Mike

Can you please close my journal as this has become the most annoying thing and more distracting than I thought

If people have this kind of treatment then I do wonder why people do t want to start their journal

Also for the FINAL time I am not a vendor and I do not want to share my system as my system has been developed over months and yes I have attended VKs room as a paid subscriber and does that make me a vendor affiliated to VK

Yes I have have shared my experience and does that make me a scam and my method and VKs methods are very different

I have posted my levels in advance and shared my trades as I thought this was my journal and my journey


Please close my journal and I thank each and every member who helped me in my journey and supported me
@Big Mike you and I had one of those relationships and please I have always showed you the respect that you deserve as you have and still do a brilliant work to keep this the very best forum. However you are quick to jump to conclusions.

For Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

Go and beat this levels to death and say and do whatever you want with it

Learn Price Action and levels and when i overlay my institutional levels on my trading charts, it all makes sense and gives me fantastic overview of the market and trades that anyone can take.


Enjoy the charts while the journal is still up and running.

Waiting for Big Mike to close this journal as Haters will be haters and they will be liars and i have been accused of being a Vendor as ACME, VK's room and yes i have also promoted and shared ACE Trades.... WOW i should stop trading and make my millions by being the Vendor for all these 3 companies.......lol

While people make up stories and make me a vendor, i am trading live account and bringing home bacon every day.

I dont go on to other peoples journal and stalk them like a lunatic.

Make money and if you dont like another person's journal then just let it go. Dont become a person with 0.005 IQ level arse and you know exactly who you are.

Having levels is one thing.

Having random lines is another thing.

Do you really know when to use the levels and how to use it in alignment with the institutional traders.

We all get told we need to use support and resistance and the big question is when does it start and when does it end.

We all get told the market starts on this time, does it really.

Also does anyone teaches you how to compound your account.

Start with risking $100.00 to make $100.00 and only do this once you have worked out your edge in the market and then use your own highest probability set up.

Repeat the same process for next 15 days..

After 15 days....repeat the process again but this time use 2 contracts... and so forth....

Why did the market stall at 42.38....

Here is CL chart showing levels from last week and new levels in orange that i calculated on Saturday after the market closed.


Make what you want....

I have invested heavily in my trading office... Spent a significant amount of money with a state of art trading beast....I do not take screen shots from the trading machine and infact it only has very few programs in it as the risk is very high.

I run the institutional levels on my laptop also but in a very condensed manner,and my laptop is my social and everyday use device.

If you are in trading business you need to know who you up against. Do you think the big players are trading off their laptops and social media devices.

Trading is simple if you want it to be

Dont over analyse it.....Dont complicate it

Follow the Sharks and you just feed off their meal.

Find a set up that gives you 100.00 per trade and repeat it over and over.

Our fear and Greed destroys us.... Start with 100.00 per day and stick to your business plan

Write down your set up and pull the trigger when you see your set up with confidence. Set your profit at $100.00.

Dont get greedy and say wow it went up another 600.00. Well it very well could have gone up 200.00 and then stopped you out.

Market is Market...it is here today and will be here tomorrow.... People make money from other traders... Decide which one you want to be.

Hi Sharmas,

first of all, congrats to your trade!

I'm happy, that you did not close your journal, I think there is quite a lot of value in it. I never got the feeling, that you try to be a vendor or that you support other vendors. If the haters, who are around here wouldn't have mentioned it, I even wouldn't have recognized, that there is somebody out there who taught you some system. Isn't this the way for most traders, that they find their way through learning from others? So I'm happy that you show us your way and I'm not expecting anything from you. Just please go on.

Cheers

and here it is friends...

and why did i let the trade go...because the levels with the institutional levels it told me what to potentially expect.


Sharmas

and the chart after the profit was taken....it went up but one needs to take the money off the table without giving most of it back.

Hi Sharmas. Kudos on your trade, my charts confirm that on your CL 09/16 contract your target should have (and probably would have) been filled.

But I had a query...15 contracts on CL, would require an initial account balance, with many brokers, of $52,800 to enter that position. Did you have that much in your account, and if not, did your broker give you a break and not charge initial, but rather just daytrade margin, which was probably 1K per ct? So only 15K in the account?

Still awaiting @Big Mike to resolve the vendor allegation. Have you engaged the Russians to find the evidence yet.

Sharmas,

I would suggest you post trading commentary on your journal instead of giving the unrelated innuendo fule.
