11 Crude Trade at open

Hey All,

Today was a beautiful trade trading crude open.. market had pushed down pre open .. after open pullback to 50% fib .. and then moved nicely down to 161.8% extension .. entered the trade as it cut back down the ma entry was at 64 with stops tightly at 74 exit was at 08 .. Finally in the new year am overcoming my issue with not holding the trade longer .. i trailed the stops at 45 once it hit 34 overall am pretty happy got my daily goal and i am out of the markets in 15 mins . Hope u all are also having a great day .. Thanks

Best Regards
Jinhar

Hey Jinhar , nice journal keep it up . I liked the charts earlier in the journal where you tracked the trend on your lower timeframe with higher highs and lower lows and closing prices . I also like the dual timeframe concept . Are you employimg the same HH and LL trend concept or just looking for price to trade above or below the moving average ?

Hey Eric,

I still use the dual timeframes and use the Hh Ll combination with the ma break on the higher timeframe .. Just when trades are simple off lower timeframe i post single chart ... For me multiple time frame confirmation is the must ...... Hope it helps .. Thanks

Best Regards
Jinhar

jinhar,

Good job on the journal, I look forward to you resuming it in a couple weeks and hope you keep it up!

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Back after long time got hung up with bmt crude Room .. btw It rocks !!!

Hey all,
I hope you all are trading fine .. sorry for being away for so long i was bz on the forums but was not bz with the journals ..as i was busy Looking at some interesting thoughts from other traders on the futures.io (formerly BMT) Skype room .. Have changed my charts a lil .. as after i went on vacation could not trade 5 min - 30 min Don't know y that happened so went back to tick charts which i know .. back to small scalpers in a day . works for me .. till i get the $$$$ in doesn' matter .. lately looking at market delta and all other stuff out there .. tried that .. and the only fact that helped was to my broker as using market delta for me is like going high on cocaine .. over traded 4 days in a row using it My broker had a huge fat smile on his face for sure .. !!! So went back to the basic which i know and i can relate myself too .. but one things is for sure .. market profile is very interesting .. i don't use market profile like most do .. i hardly use them in the manner they are supposed to be use .. i just use them as support resistance nothing else nothing more works well for me .. instead of using pivots i have started using that and works like a charm .. !!!! Okay that was all i did in last month while i was away now back to trading .. took one trade on crude at the open got 24 ticks on it market broke above the ma on the higher time frame and at the open tested the ma .. so it was a good long using it as support .. Just one trade for me for today .. was busy reading Big mikes and other trader comments in the room .. very interesting read .. u all should try it sometimes .. !!! anyways m done for today .. happy trading to all .. !!! Cya soon .. !


Best Regards
Jinhar

Nothing better then that . that right der is your holy grail in my opinion .. Hope u all are having wonderful day .. !! Thnks
