3. all requirement can bbe seen on

I start this journal not to debate but to help each other especially help me to pass the combine.

I will keep update end of my trading day with the result and try my best to attached my screen and give some noted.

Thank you.....

Today is my first day of combine. Im happy for the first day because its end up with positive even with small profit.

What i learn from day 1:
1. I have fear to lose capital so i trade with carefully but because of that i miss alot of opportunity and trade what i should not trade
2. My stop is to tight and move the stop lose to near. Some of my trade actually in profit but because of tight stop lose made the trade close in lose. My rules for stop lose is max 8 ticks
3. Dont trade when you cant read the market. Today market looks like trending up but its no strength to go up and end up in trading range day

My strength in day 1 are:
1. Patient
2. Disciplined

My weakness in day 1 are:
1. Fear to lose capital
2. move stop lose to tight

Will keep my strength and improve them, minimize the weakness and change it.

Looking forward for day 2. thanks and JLU
