Hello everyone

I would like to start sharing some of my ideas and charts for 6E and YM.

I am using Acme indicators from Rancho dinero and would like to share my experience and get your feedback at the same time.

Posting the 6E Chart with 8 Renko Hybrid Range.

Here is my YM chart from Friday and Saturday trades.

Closed the first trade as had to pick children up from their tuition.

And then made the mistake on my second trade as all my indicators were pointing to down trend. Lesson learnt

Then i took my third trade with 7 cars for 30 ticks each.The perfect entry for this trade was 12943 and not 12948.

Need to work on timing my entries

Will talk more about my thought patterns.


Meantime i would love to get your feedback to improve my entries and targets.

Also will provide more details as to how i go with Acme Indicators.

Happy to discuss Acme with anyone. Or PM if you want any details.

Thanking you all.

Another variation with Fib Wave from Acme

A perfect entry and target 20 x 2

I need to get more discipline and work on my entries.

The charts are simple and nice to eyes...but ..but more room for improvement

So far love what Acme does and offers.

Some thoughts on my trading plan and my daily affirmations.

A DISCIPLINED TRADER WILL BE MORE SUCCESSFUL WITH A FAULTY TRADING PLAN THAN AN UNDISCIPLINED TRADER WITH A PERFECT TRADING PLAN
And the beauty of trading ‘IN THE ZONE’ is that these positive pleasurable feelings create such a wealth of healthy psychology that my subsequent trades become even more profitable and successful! And if I do experience a loss, I am cool, I don't react, i don't experience fear or doubt or anger and I just go on to my next trade unaffected. Well, that's trading ‘IN THE ZONE’....and it's a great experience, as I well know if I’ve been lucky enough to achieve it, even for just a short time. Trading is the greatest game in the world…and having a positive winning mindset is 80% of success. Keep my emotions cool, stay in control of my emotions, and I’ll be on top of the game always. “OWN THE ZONE”. I am a Samurai Warrior and I am a winner and on my way to Financial Freedom!

Maintain Daily Trading Journal

List and detail trades taken; and detail trades skipped/missed that were in my Trading Plan.
Keep snapshots of charts that show signals taken/missed.
Detail my emotions throughout the trade.


Be honest in my journal about wanting to exit early; getting panicky when price goes against me; avoiding a trade because of fear; all the emotions that I’m feeling even if I don’t act on them.
Review my charts and my Journal weekly away from the emotions of the live markets


MENTAL PREPARATION
If internal/external influences distract my trading I will not trade or I will trade in simulation until confident the distractions have been eliminated.
Train myself to think in terms of Long Term Probabilities and NOT short term results.

The Fundamental Truths (Mark Douglas – Trading in the Zone)
Anything can happen.
You don’t need to know what is going to happen next in order to make money.
There is a random distribution between wins and losses for any given set of variables that define an edge.
An edge is nothing more than an indication of a higher probability of one thing happening over another.
Every moment in the market is unique.

I am a consistent Winner because:
I objectively identify my edges.
I predefine the risk of every trade.
I completely accept the risk or I am willing to let go of the trade.
I act on my edges without reservation or hesitation.
I pay myself as the market makes money available to me.
I continually monitor my susceptibility for making errors.
I understand the absolute necessity of these principles of consistent success and, therefore, I never violate them.


I alone will be responsible for the results of my trading.

Hi Sharmas

These charts look great but I was wondering if your were able to talk more about the indies, what they are, how you use them and why you took the trade - this would be helpful. Thanks

Team

I am working on my numbers and potential entries.

I will hopefully in next day or two show more details around my entries.

And talk about my thought patterns as to why i took what i took.

Watch the space.

And any feedback or suggestion is welcomed with both arms as together we will learn and get better with making some greens or on consistent basis.

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

Closed the trade as there is a High Impact news item in few minutes.


Will now go and have a good rest.

Ended up $1007.50 day less commission today from my first 2 trades.

And as i am typing this, the market has gone down and would have delivered my target, but RULES are rules.

Was a great trade and as my rules, no new trades 15 mins before a major news item and no trades 15 mins after the major news item.

I took my profit at 1.0330 and the market paid another 37 ticks in profit...take what you have and dont be greedy.


Go for high probability trades and with set targets and stop-Money Management.

All in all a great day.


We were to fly out to Fiji Islands on Sunday,however due to worse flooding in Fiji's history we are at home awaiting for our next flight. We were then schedule to fly out today, that got rescheduled.

So will try to get some much needed rest and work on my trading strategies and plan out my High Probability trade set ups.

Took few trades more than i usually do.

The universe has been very kind to me today and delivered a very good return.

What have i learnt. Wait for the price to come to you and stick to the target and MONEY MANAGEMENT IS PARAMOUNT.

We have got yet another booking for tomorrow, so will be heading to the airport at 10.00am and all going well will be flying to Fiji tomorrow at 1.00pm


Kids are very excited and not sure they really know what it it like in a flood or cyclone area.

Will be fun overall.

Also received exciting message from Rancho Dinero that they will be announcing the Spring 2012 Acme Market Analytics webinar series very soon.


Also will take few days to catch up on some great futures.io (formerly BMT) journals and updates.

So i missed out on around 12 x 2 ticks, however entered Long at 1.3172 x 2 with a predetermined target of 1.3196

24+7+24 =55 x 2 = 110 ticks for the night


off to sleep now .

I am learning every day and working on my greediness and building on my discipline

Also i am feeling confident in what i am doing now as i am talking and sharing my trades in my journal

I really appreciate those who have stopped by and read and continue to read my journal. And appreciate all the thanks i have received so far.

Thanking you all

Trade em well

The Market pays you to be disciplined

Trading with discipline will put more money in your pocket and take less money out.

The one constant truth concerning the markets is that DISCIPLINE= INCREASED PROFITS.

Team

Spending time to read and understand the Volume Impression chart

Want to make this part of my daily trading.
The Acme Volume Impression (AVI) lends a ton of depth to the Acme Volume Analytics suite. Why? Well, impressions are one of the only ways you can really ďsee inside the bars.Ē Buying and selling pressure are much easier to spot as itís right there in the numbers. Volume Impressions make pressure imbalances obvious and precise where bar range and candle patterns can be ambiguous and misleading.

Hi Sharmas, I can't reply to your pm yet as i have under 5 posts.

I live in Auckland CBD. Yea, I agree forex is a beast, but still I think the potential is there to make money as long as one has good money management and trading skills That's the trick i guess... I trade on a part time basis at the moment.

I have an interest in futures trading because I believe it is more transparent and well regulated compared to spot fx.

Do you trade full time and what is your preferred market to trade?

Keep well, cheers mate!

Took one trade and entered at specific levels

The universe has been very kind to me today and delivered a very good return.

What have i learnt is that i need to learn more about the levels and trust those levels

The News did not fill the target but it came back to the 127.20 level and filled it

There was very minimal risk on this trade.

Watching the levels for tonight but will need to be caution

Havent been to my own Thread-Journal for ages.

First focus is to trade well and consistently.

Second will try my best to update my journal with my thoughts and charts to see my progress and learnings.

Will try to share as much as i can

Here is my chart where the signals for Short and Long are marked.

The strategy that i use gets me into the trade in real time with the price as per the chart.

I need to build my confidence and take the trades like machine.

Took a nice CL Long trade.
Entry was bit early, had the strategy to add 2 more contracts at 35.28 but chickened out.
Upside target is 35.72 however got stopped out at 35.44

330.00 for 30 mins of work is not bad.

how are you finding ACME and eminifuturesbuysell now, are they still as useful as this thread suggests?

Still awaiting for the new NT 8 indicators as they are in BETA mode

Eminifutures... have not used them for awhile

KongZana is where i am with and has changed my view on Trading and has instilled discipline in me that has been missing.

I used to over trade and give it all back.... VK has taught me and still teaches me how to remain calm

Sharmas

The 35.72 was not hit but price came to 35.71

So far there were potentially 3 longs and 1 short and would have been done for theday but had few meetings to attend to.

Here is my chart with a long trade

Hi Sharmas

@Trader12A, that kongzana indicator is nearly identical to a cci histogram set at 230/23
@sharmas, I did take a trial to the kongzana room based on your recommendation, thanks.

lets see what the market offers and what the market takes.

Its always a fight but having few probabilities on your-side makes the fight 60/40 in your favor.

Took 1 trade with 3 contracts

Learnings

Respect the levels as market does and why do I think i am bigger or better than the market

Wait for the price to come to you rather than jumping in like there is no tomorrow

Took a lot of heat but then when market got me into Green, I GOT GREEDY
Plus the market was heading downside and i looked for long and not Short

Still making dumb and dumber decision.
$288.00 after commission is still a better day than negative day.

Countless traders wish that they had started with price action instead of indicators.
Who here wished that they had started with indicators instead of price action.

Becoming a consistent trader is a long journey. It takes at least a few years of intensive effort. As a new trader, time is precious.

You should focus on studying the market. You should spend your time observing the market. A simple approach like price action trading allows you to do just that.

Price is the only thing you need to focus on. It helps you to avoid distractions. With a singular focus on price, itís easier to learn how the market behaves and speed up your progress.

Just need to refine it a bit more and see how the levels play for next couple of weeks

I ran this combine along side my real account and in 10 days i achieved the goal and for the final day i took a small risk free trade to makesure i get over the 10 days with a win.

Real account was lot more than that.

A number of days i traded small 3 contracts and took High probability trades and the result is here.

Sometimes we need to let the runners run.

Learnings

Set a daily goal and in my case i had that as $350.00
Stick to your plan and then trade your plan

Lets see what the preparation for Live funding looks like.

Had a full on day and feeling fatigued
Waited for the High probability trade with 2 contracts and managed it to 49.21 that should have been my profit target but the greediness came into this and got stopped out at 49.14

Still not a bad days work.

More rigor and courage to push the trigger button is needed and few more streamlining to do

Every day is a new day and it teaches a new lesson.

Yes after the event i can sit here and say...Could have...should have and i would have made another 400.00.
the fact is set a daily goal and when it hits it, either protect it to take more out of the market or get your money.. fold it and walk away..

Market is here today and will be here tomorrow... its the consistency of your approach and method that defines you and gives you the edge.
