Excellent live trading 'webinar' yesterday. It was great listening to your thought process, trade management, etc...

I notice you incorporate a lot of concepts from Lance Beggs (angle of moves, trapped traders etc). I presume you've read his Price action trader book? I read it last year and found it to be excellent. I think I need to read it a 2nd time though to fully grasp all the concepts and implement them.

Thanks again. Looking forward to your next live trading session.

Thanks for the kind words DarkPool,

Yes, I am a big fan of Lance Beggs. He's a great teacher, a great trader, and a great guy. Reading his stuff didn't change my methods, but it did clarify things. It's a funny story, I was actually trading exactly like him BEFORE I read his stuff. I feel like him and I are two scientists across the world that discovered the same thing without knowing each other.

Happy trading bud.

Hope everyone had a good trading session today. I was +32 ticks on the day (average ticks per contract traded). Could have been a better day, but I had a few trade management issues. Tracking along nicely for my practice combine, ha. Wish it was the real one!

If you missed the real-time trading session this morning you can find the recording on the blog. http://bit.ly/ZGU4yk

I also just posted an article on a great tool for measuring profitability, and gauging drift in trading performance. http://bit.ly/Wgutey

I don't recall if you have said so, but when are you going to start it? Do you plan to practice the whole 2 weeks?
As long as you are comfortable with the platform and you already have the strategy, why not just go for it? The volatility is here!

I prefer the chart trader on Ninja, to the DOM on their platform. I'm waiting to see if TST allows trading on Ninja on March 1st. If it's going to delayed much past that, then I'll go ahead start it. Either way, should be starting by mid of next week.

Hey it7, glad to see this log, I was away for awhile from your earlier log.

Quick question, when you used Ninja for awhile, your charts showed each trade with a dashed line (green for profits, red for loses). Was that a custom ninja script?

No custom code. I think I'm the only person who knows about this, people ask all the time!

Open account performance tab, then open either the trades sub-tab or the executions sub-tab, right click somewhere in the data and select "chart..." magic.

Hrmm...I tried that from both the Trades and Executions sub tabs under Account Performance and all it does it open up a new 1-minute chart.
