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.

Today's High and Low as at 10:35 am: 614.70 and 602.40
VPOCs: Top 618.00 (611.80 was touched) and Bottom ?? (I'd suggest using today and overnight's Low for reference)

Well, it has regained the lost ground and continues rotating up!

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:

Succeeded in changing one to a caricature one. Quite colorful .. haha ..

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.
