Spent all evening making this... thank you trading software stats for being useless.


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).

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:

Still don't have my microphone to record, but I inlaid text notes to describe every single trade entry today.
