This journal is open for anyone to post your trading days that made you want to scream to the world, look how I did today. All I ask is before posting use platform markers and note profit in ticks/points of trades, if platform does not mark, identify with entry/exit markers and please NO cheating. I have had days when I wanted to tell someone, well heres your place. Any instruments welcome winning is winning. I wanted to do this journal for some time you can imagine when

This isnt a journal to ask why or what indicators are used, its simply a place to post and where new traders can see a visual of trades then go back to their charts and research, modify, understand etc.

Note: Heres a chart to get us started no not my best day just a day

Happy Trading and Good Luck to All

Just wondering while you have the markers on your chart, where are the trade text that can automatically go with the markers available with Ninja, or is it your choice to just show markers only?

Hello Cloudy.....dont understand trade text comment? Ninja offers--- show markers only or show markers along with contracts traded at that marker, which this isnt the reason I started this journal to show $$$ made, this is a journal anyone could post in when they had a Great day (beginner, indeterminate,advanced,master, or like me none). I do know platforms that have instant fills like Tos will have better simm days than ones like Ninja,live,simm/demo a good day is still a good day.

Happy trading to all

Yes, the text showing the contracts traded is what I meant. Because it also shows the prices filled at automatically and information about opening and closing which can show more info overall about how the trading was done, whether the trader was scaling in or doubling down , or taking half contracts off etc. that markers can't show. And much harder to photoshop and copy paste in than just markers. ; I think it gives the most complete picture of trading results and a the most believable trail at least for NT.

I see what you mean, I thought about scaling traders before I posted thats why i figured I'd just leave it up to them to show over all ticks/pts per move. I dont know if anyone will use this journal it was just a idea for the trader who doesnt have a journal to post his winning day. Showing actually size and $$$$ you know the issue with doing that, its been said many times and no one that trades size will so this bc its like showing your bank account

Anyways keeper straight on the runways,

Happy Holidays

Tuesdays are usually my worst days as shown by this chart here.


But today I just rocked it. I traded well and actually pulled that up from where it was.


Net + 47.112 ticks with slippage and commissions included. (LIVE ACCOUNT)

I dont actually know how sharing winners helps traders but i thought it would be fun. I think maybe having a pristine loser journal would be cool too. What I define as a pristine loser is a trade that fit all your rules but was stopped out.

No i agree with that. But often losers are not pristine, pristine losers are to be cherished because you executed perfectly and it just doesn't pan out. Losers caused by lack of following your plan, psychological or emotional reasons or just by impulse are not included. But for many traders those types of losers are very common.

Interesting having your P/L by day-of-the-week.
How many weeks does that cover?

1. Any reason Tuesdays seems to be your biggest losing day?
2. What would your average weekly profit as a percentage of what it is now if you didn't trade on Tuesdays?


Last few Tuesdays (reverse order):
June





May




..........
peace, love and joy to you

Here are the Thursdays:

June 20 "downslash"



June 13 "upslash"



June 06 "V-day"


May 30 "up & check"


May 23 "W-day"



May 16 "down N" - the letter N with the first stroke downwards (versus upwards)

I have been tracking that for almost 12 weeks and 133 trades. removing Tuesdays would have saved me 66.8% of my total draw down.

Today turned out well with scalping ES and a few CL trades

Anyone can post here in this journal, I was hoping this would give traders a place to post any instrument, anytime without having a journal. So Im posting to keep it alive and yes I had a fun day trading

Happy Trading
