GC trading

Finally got a nice run on gold. A trade planned well early in Globex came to fruition late in a day. I have anticipated that there will be short entered on this down run during Globex and several lower lows. Their stops as well as breakout traders entries will be above yesterday's high, since it is a higher high lately. Bear will have to puke it and this level will act as a magnet as price gets very close to it. In past I would put a stop order 2 ticks past the level, now I put it 2-3 ticks in front, fully understanding that I will get more losers that just don't pop, but I will get much better fill on the winners if I enter during the normal trading activity, not during stop liquidation.

And it worked beautifully today. Got my pre-planned target 30 ticks risking 10 in a blink of an eye. Both T4 and Ninja totally froze for like 10 seconds. Only once they unfroze I could see my TP was hit. Nice way to end the week and I am now well on a way to win this combine.

My trade on Ninja did not work that well, it got slipped 5 ticks (which is ok) since I use local sim and stops are simulated locally, and target was 50 ticks but in any case it also simulated locally so nothing worked while Ninja froze. I closed it once it unfreeze, only to collect peanuts. But there won't be a problem like that when live nor with T4 sim.

@xelaar
Are you using a broker data feed with Ninja? If so, which one, I might ask?

That was CQG. I am pretty sure data feed was alright, it's just it puked out so many quotes instantly Ninja and T4 both frozen unable to sift through. It does happen but quite rarely.

After today's success on the finish straight. Still 6 day to go but only 2100 to do. About 350 per day to average.

Thanks xelaar for this nice journal.
After having a look into your interesting live trading video I came to the conclusion what a trader only has to do:

Being at the right time at the right place / aka instrument and push the BUTTON - but push it!

Nice weekend

Not much luck today. Apathy across the board. Had a trade, it struggled a lot. Tried twice but nothing is there. Will be better another day.

Not much trading today. Scarce trading across the board. Crude is very thin, less traded than gold. No trading in Combine today, let FOMC tomorrow out first.

I had a decent trade in DAX today, but overall it is a compacted range, nothing to see, move on.
