Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

This fits on 3rd category - Being Comfortable ( With Market structure ) but not following Trading Plan.

5-Oct-2012 : I realized latter , its not the case. Subconsciously i was still trading the plan...only difference was to choose what strategic action is best suited in that particular situation. Simply put Trading Plan includes different tactics/methodology depending on particular environment.
First trade didn't worked, though i perceived structure at A to be a final stop hunt over prior Lows. LTZ near 5740 had some significance in this context. Second trade turned better having better momentum on long side than first trade.

I had correct initiation of startup trade....but following structure on short time trame , i got distracted a little. That lead me to took a scratch long. All this pile-up on my original motive of following the trend and made me little paralyze even after seeing continuous weakness further. But it was good that i didn't tried further long with revenge intention common to occur in this feel of missing out my correct trade. Though nett i still made good profit....but i surely didnt took correct decision.

08-Oct-2012 : With good short in hand, i was greedy and lazy to book it early. There was no confusion at the opening where its headed. Though normally i have been very quick to exit...and location A would have been my favorite exit if i had not be little lazy. A and B eluded my vision. I felt i am risking against yday low and important LTZ and now its potential case of double bottom. All this made me totally reversed my position. I do not wanted to wait for long as i was perceiving its already late to get in - mistake of being impatience. But result of this was also so obvious.

But now real mistake on context i made next. C was a development discarding A and B and it was critical time consumption in lower 2nd SD. If it had to bounce it must have gone fast just after breaking double bottom. Neither it came above VWAP nor very good creek jump. But till then i had already lost battle mentally.

Long was low risk...but i made mistake of probability assessment of its success. I will try some statistical study to avoid this in future.
