Weekend Review

1. Set Up/Indicators/Charts

i. ES

- 4-Range as-is
- 30-minute MP to be removed starting Monday

ii. TF

- 4-Range as-is
- 30-minute MP (replacing ES)
- 5-minute with PASwing and MACDBB to detect early exit warnings (it's the set up I'd been using to sim-trade my strategies since May)

Note: Not using new set ups and prefer staying with the ones I'm familiar with.

2. Trade/Money Management

i. Mostly 1-contract trades PT/SL @4/6 (adjust SL to -3 after a 3-tick move)

ii. Maximum number of trade(s): 1 to 3/day

3. Trading Instrument - TF only

4. Performance Review on Trader

i. Overall Grade: B

ii. Emotion Control: B+

iii. SOH: A- (Know when NOT to trade most of the time)

What's Next?

I've decided to stay with TF for the next two weeks. Then another bi-weekly performance review to assess everything again.

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.

Thanks Mike! You're always the "first" one to notice if we create an album or make changes to the avatar LOL!

We did take a few photos after our tandem workout last night. Here it comes the album link if others want a glimpse:

Trading Morning for Mon

No of Trades: 2 (1-contract trades and both winners)
No of Ticks: 7 before commission

Note for the Second Trade: Adjusted PT 4 to 3 when Trade changed to Chop.

What I noticed (as mentioned in my earlier posts):

1. The first trade aligned with the trend stood a higher chance of success, ie at least 4 ticks.

2. Else most got 3 ticks and ended up losing.

How to tackle this?

1. Maybe adjust the first PT to 3 (from 4) though risk/reward 2:1 does not look good.

2. Only take the higher probability trades.

3. Adjust the timeframe.

I will monitor more before the next move.

Have a Successful day.
