Thanks! I was bored to death today, waited for my first trade around 7 hours! Market went nowhere, and then Draghi turned it away from my entries. Two break even trades with overall 6 ticks profit. But I am glad I wasn't tempted to do any impulsive trades at all. I guess I am living this Combine through and I am liking it.

Spent some time doing two YouTube videos though about my trading method and capturing these two break even trades..

Great discipline! Probably 95% of people out there would have tried to force a trade, rather than wait 7 hours.

Thats how my day went .. Waited 2 hours for the first trade to show up. Then it ended up being a loss. It was tough start to the day. Like you I am determined to finish my combine out and hit the goals.

Your combine is looking good! Keep it up! Just a thought though- dont get distracted by trying to do videos and stuff. Keep doing what got you to this point. No sense and changing your habits mid stream. We can wait till your funded to see hows its done!

Thanks, Mike. I was wondering why there is no youtube button on the edit panel. Fixed now.

Most traders would not have been able to do that. Great discipline. Your combine report speaks for itself. Well done and keep up the great trading.

Diversification is the only free lunch

Today was a funny day. O/N session wasn't volatile but volume was present, at least twice of yesterday's volume and higher than mornings of previous week. But price wasn't moving much. I had a long setup but it did not get there, did not get to another short setup, so I finally lowered my long pending order to a level where some order flow was looking probable. It got triggered and I took healthy 13 ticks. Later market went down, I wasn't really tempted to engage because huge orders were flowing up and down on the tape making market price jump up and down. So despite clear direction down the risk of stop out was very high. I stay the course with my system so I did not deviate. I have decided to end my day early today, having only this one trade in my log. I have to pack my van going early morning tomorrow for a two day race event, so I will be absent. Today was good in a way it allowed me to finish early and on a good note. I will continue on Friday. Up on the day 1000 usd net.




According to my spreadsheet I should be able to finish in 25 trading days, given that I have completed 16 days, it is still 9 trading days to go. Hopefully I will be able to post greater profits in the last part of Combine and complete it by 24th of May.
