Looks like I can really improve my bottom line by having hard stops at -$360 area.


It definitely looks like most of the trades that go beyond that area are closed at or near the MAE line so they aren't recovering by that point.

Just a note, you can directly attach MP4 or FLV videos to a post, and they will play instantly on futures.io (formerly BMT).

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)

Order Placement


I notice on your videos when placing an order you have a pop up "confirming order placement" if you do not want to see this just go to tools -------> options and untick the confirm order placement box

Will they show up as a link (like they do now), or will they show an embedded player like the youtube videos do?

They have download links + a 'Play Video' link which will pop-up a window to play.

Done for the day today. Time to finish moving.

Overall really good trading.

Good things:
Especially happy with recognizing a choppy early session, and adjusting my trading to profit from it, then adjusting immediately as volatility picked up and swings widened out/trends developed. That's really a major key to trading. Recognizing the structure/environment you're in.

Bad things:
As you can see, I let one loser get too big (-18 ticks) and that hurt my performance today. Here's the ticks (average ticks per contract) for each trade.
+4
-18
+12.75
+5.5
+9
+4.25
+10
-9.5
+13.5
-4
+4.5
-5.5
+6.5
+10.5

Here's the daily P/L for the week:
