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.

Market Profile for ES

Upon completion of the first two 30-minute brackets, here they come the special reference points:

Initial Balance (IB): 1161.75 - 1170.75 (9 points)
VAH as at 10:35 am: 1169.25 - 1166.25 - 1164.25
VPOCs: 1153 (1164.50 was touched) and 1192.50
Open: 1166.50

It has been trading within previous day's Value Area for the first hour (with minor breakout and breakdown). My expectation: It will trade within today's IB unless it breaks up or down with strong buying/selling initiative. Like what happened this week and extended the daily range to 15 points. Will see what Mr Market wants.

Happy & Successful Trading.

Beth

Great job!

Thanks Mike! U can count on me to be a well-disciplined trader. No more trades not even with Bracket Trader. I believe I am quite familiar with its basic Buy/Sell orders and can place live trades efficiently when the time comes!

Thanks again ZCars! It's very user-friendly. The bracket orders (with predetermined PT and SL for 1 or multiple contracts) are placed upon trade execution. The Manual Trade Management window makes it very easy to change the order + it gives me an idea on how far or close the PT/SL are. I will try the breakout/fade orders next.

It's like having NJ ATM feature on IB and it's free & reliable LOL! Thanks ZCars for cheering me up!!

Beth

Glad you are getting to grips with it, Beth. If only IB's book trader was as simple and effective. I prefer it to NT's dom and if you want to increase the visual size of the ladder you can make the icons larger in Windows user ease of access which will 'blow everything up' (less strain on my eyes!). It's great for scalping eur/ usd with IB as you can join the bid/ offer and get a better fill and taking a few pips in a momentum trade is child's play. Enjoy!

Thanks again ZCars for sharing your resources with me!

I do not have any trading experiences or knowledge on EUR/USD. You made it sound soooooooooo easy LOL! Do you have a thread demonstrating how you trade this pair. I love to make a few pips haha (not sure what they are .. oooo ).

Beth (grateful)

Price Action Practice

No trading windows are on since my early report. See, I am a well-disciplined trader!

While waiting for the washer to finish, I practised my PA labelling skill on the enclosed. It's a historical chart (not market replay) and quite challenging for me. Having said that, the good news is: I started to appreciate its simplicity.

Stay focused on what you've been working on. No changes for two weeks! See you the 26th!

Gosh! Maybe I will get a raincheck from ZCars IF he's willing to issue one for me. Let me put down "EUR/USD - taking a few pips in a momentum trade" on my Nice-to-have list LOL!

Yes, focus focus focus .. No changes for two weeks and it's ON! No change of Plan Big Brother Mike!

FYI: I am taking Nelson to Mytle Beach, South Carolina on 24-28 May. No trading that week and I will do my system review (inclusive of indicators) upon our return.
