6E moved extremely fast around between 8:30 am and 8:45 am. It's impossible to catch the move! Hey, my charts did not freeze ... usually did when I was using the 6.5 platform. Sooo, I can trade with peace LOL!

Note: Certainly will be a big headache if I want to have a big collection of NT 7 indicators and strategies. Now I am an owner of about 5 indies and nil strategies ..

Sorry Sharky .. I don't get it. Maybe you will elaborate a little more for me please. Thank you.

I forgot to mention I did all 3 trades (2 sim and 1 live) on my own. I wasn't in my friend's room until 10:30 am or so. I realize having a small group looking at the same set-up helps!

I chose not to take more trades today as I am not 100% physically sound. That's always my challenge .. esp when I have some myths in my petite head .. This round my worries on the system switchover.

For the record, I still have 8 pips as my daily goal. Let's hope I will identify 2 great signals tomorrow and accomplish the same.

Note to Sharky: Now that I am more alert, I believe I understand what you meant. No need to respond unless you want to share more tips with me. Thanks.

Stay warm! It's snowing quite heavily .. more than yesterday.

Got it Sharky! I agree with you 1,000,000,...%. When I was facilitating a training program, I learned more from the learners + it's a great exercise for both my heart and head when I designed the program flow. When I was attending an instructions flow program years ago, I was identified as both a do-er and a feel-er. Meaning I need to be in action most of the time (else I would dis-engage myself) plus the subject has to mean something to me .. haha .. Oh, guess I am a student very challenging to please .. a secret ..

Thanks for the elaboration!

I have a "troubled" night as I get myself too involved in a friend's most recent broken relationship. I became both parties' relationship counsellor .. really messy .. sigh ..

2 big trading mistakes I made this morning:

1. Missed the chop/undecided warning (lasted for about 10 minutes) plus the suggestion to look for Long in the room. NOT a short which I did seconds later.

2. I had a severe headache .. running a fever - should just watch and not trade!!

A little comfort: I succeeded not having the full SL hit for my trade. For the 2 trades I did this week, it's +1 before commission. Not very proud on the ground I covered. Well, the weekly result is way better than last week -12!?? I am confident that I will do better in the coming week.

For the record, I continued watching for a good signal until 12:00 noon. After its running up 60 pips, I was looking for a good Long when it retraced. Just too narrow plus DX did not align. I better close down than making a stupid move.

Remember Lindsay's suggestion. Guess what I am going to reward myself upon completion of the 10 live trade assignment? I am going to consider the No 1 item on my "bucket list". Started shopping last night and came across a great deal IMHO 50% off + a bonus item. I haven't decided the exact package yet as I would like to do more research/shopping. Now I may have aroused your curiosity. Will disclose the reward when I completed the 10th trade. Please stay tuned.

Note: It will take me months or even years to accomplish that No 1 item after purchase .. smile ..

Enjoy a Lovely weekend everyone.

Starting next week, I am adjusting my trading hours to:

8:00 am to 12:00 noon (from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon)

while other "ingredients" remain unchanged, eg

Trading Instrument: 6E (while monitoring DX)
Daily Goal: 8 (certainly don't mind if I end up making more .. smile ..)
Maximum No of Trades/Day: 3

Note: 6 spots to be filled before completion of the assignment. My objective is to complete the required number of trades (only when I spot high probability signal) and it's not about green or red. Funny that I am not focussing too much on ticks/pips anymore. I rather like to see improvement on how I manage a trade + emotion.

Thanks Cory for your prompt suggestion. I am a fan of EFT and Reiki. 2 sleepless nights in a row did cause severe headache today. Just took a commercial painkiller .. quite often worked instantly as I seldom take them ..
