If you are having those kind of problems with NT freezing and dropping connections... why are you still trading today?


I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

The thrills? Trading can often be boring. Why not add a little "spice" to it and have intermittent connectivity and platform issues to keep you on your feet?

1 Long and the rest shorts

Im testing once again the $100 stop for myself early morning. We are are at 61.80% both on extension from just yesterdays move down and retracement from tuesday top to yesterdays low.

Lets see what happens?....We got a double top and a failed swing high..that was enough to cut bait..we are at 61.8 and dont things usually turn around from there? That was on the back of my mind when I went long, now would be a good short I bet (pund)

Crap...I just shorted..lets see if Im wrong..

Short w/ 20 point stop after a double top & failed swing high, I wonder if the odds are w/ me? I could wait til pa breaks wedge, but too late.

PA got me out and thats fine, Ill go as price allows..

Im shorting now, using $100 stp cus I believe its turning, may not have timing right so give some room, let it work. Canceled stop cus over extended, whats another few bucks if wrong? Pheww who knows?

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)

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
