Yes I know...

Please help me petition Sierra Chart to add a similar option built-in to Sierra for sharing images on futures.io (formerly BMT). They have a 'upload chart' option, but it is still not as easy as what was developed for NinjaTrader. If they added a 'Upload chart w/bbcode' option, it would be better and they could return to clipboard the [img] tags enclosed with the image URL.

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.

Do I add in higher, or be happy about my trade location...??? (and that is my thought, not wanting an outside answer). I am not used to managing a trade like this, but I see that @Private Banker and @greenr sometimes add as it moves in their favor.

I have held a position all day so far though, so either way I have accomplished something for myself.

If I add now, it is becauseI want more money, not because I know what I am doing. The correct add was at 92.15, which I missed, and then MAYBE at 92.25 where my dog blocked me. Ignoring the fact that I could have bought new dog for $400.00...

Holding and watching it go up and down makes me wonder is I should have done this or that. Same emotions as scalping but less excitement.

I did move my stop to 92.01...

If this comes back on me now, it is probably karma after what I said about Piper.

Cool dog! With today being rotational, you do not want to be adding to your position at higher prices. Just my opinion of course. Market is having a hard time with VWAP and yesterday's value. Keeps getting rejected. Maybe it breaks through and eats more into yesterday's profile but could just as well have a spike lower at some point today. Profile just looks really rotational though, we have excess at both ends of the profile now. Play the extremes and stay on your toes!
