Thanks Cory for your tip. I am using a laptop (per enclosed specs) to run only 2 CL charts. NT CS just responded to my frozen question. He reviewed the trace file and made the following comments:

I'm not seeing any errors or disconnections listed, so I think this is a matter of NinjaTrader failing to keep up with indicator calculations and calculations required for display of charts and other windows.

I will SOH when it's important news time + when the charts are not plotting. No big deal .. supposed to be a "good" girl anyway .. smile ..

Morning Recap for Wed

I did 4 CL trades this morning (per enclosed). They're all valid signals. With the exception of the first trade (which only went +7 and I exited -4), all remaining three should be profitable ones of 20+ even on my book they're not. Main reasons:

1. I took conservative entries this morning = 8-10 pips less favorable than regular entry points
2. SL 10 does not provide enough pullback/retracement room

Emotion-wise: I feel fine because it's not human operation error lol. No chasing too.

I am going to adjust CL's PT/SL to 20/15. Let's see if there will be good signals in the afternoon.

Time for a Big Laugh .. oooo


I close a CL short seconds ago (shorted @109.00). It went +27 and I let it run. Adjusted SL got hit +6. I wonder how one digests/accepts situation like that?!

Could be the last trade of the day.

Beth, sorry if I missed it - is this cash or sim?

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.

Hi Beth
How is it that in one post you say that you are setting CL TP at 20 and then say a subsequent trade made +27 but you closed for +6?

Just wondering?

Hi Lindsay

Yes, CL TP @20 .. just that I was practising my MP HVN/LVN knowledge and adjusted my PT as the trade moved. Am learning to stay in a trade longer!

MT4 platform "sucks"!!

I had AOCO (Automatic OCO) and S (Stop order) on all the time (will be in Red). When I thought I was placing a Buy Stop @105.81 (around 9:48 EST), it became a market buy order and I was in @105.70. Another shock was it did not come with a pair of OCO. Then I realized both icons were black, ie AOCO and S features were off.

As fast as I could press the Close Pos button, it's already -15 (2x-15=-30) ... oooo ..

I swear I noticed their on-and-off deactivation behaviour and have been very cautious in double-checking before placing my order. They're red seconds ago and they tricked me.

Good news: I recovered from this unfortunate incident and entered the second Short trade 20 seconds later. It was a winner 2x20 .. +10 now. For my internal record should be +40 .. haha ..

Have a Great day.

Just closed a 6E short +20 (2 x 10) seconds ago. I'm officially done for the morning. Note: Need to add 1 hour to the trade time.

My internal record for this morning: CL +40 and 6E +20.

I did a late 6E trade (1 contract) last night (close to midnight). Initial SL @1.4544 .. getting drowsy and adjusted it to 1.4543. Got stopped out before its dropping 14-20 pips immediately. What's new!!

Only did 1 CL trade this morning +60 (3 x 20). Last day .. can't wait to switch back to NT lol!
