Making blanket statements only shows what you "think" you know. I havent posted deeper stats which I do have but havent posted.

With a 62% win ratio and an avg win to loss ratio of 2:3 its still positive expectancy. Thats after all the bad trades, glitches with software, bad orders, not getting filled on FIFO etc. Might not seem much to you but I know where I need to improve and CTD (inspite of their constant push towards it-almost to the point of spamming) I doubt could improve what I need to improve.

BTW are you associated with TST in any paid capacity that you are benefitting from them?


I'm just another recruit just like you.

Hoag's blanket statements were said to me as well. And yes, I only know as much as I know, that's why I ponied up to expand my knowledge as my trade reports speak for them self.

Actually Hoag's comment of average losers greater than average winners were said to me on many occasions when I requested many scout calls.

All the best to you and your journey.

Actually at some point in near future I will post a detailed analysis of this combine. At this point I neither have enough time nor motivation and that leads to priority of other things to do the detailed analysis. I am sorry if I sounded harsh earlier. Your comments sounded a bit "elite-traderish" I am sure you didnt mean like that but I am under a lot of duress right now so please dont take offense.

As far as the biggest winner vs biggest loser, if your win % is big enough (like for me it is) you can get away with it my only problem is sticking with stop losses. My over +10 tick losses are way more than I d like them to be. My stop is 7 tics but I move it around and I need to stop that. One thing that TST doesnt show in their stats that "should" be there is the MFE vs MAE. To me that is a very key stat. Going forward I am keeping a tab on that.

I too suffered from moving stop when I shouldn't, try this, make it your goal for this week to NOT move your stop. That is your goal, not to improve your stats or care about the outcome of the trade.

As not moving a stop or target is a key fundamental to trading. I did that for a week and I got over it. I no longer have the urge to act on moving a stop when the market get close. Think about it for a second, if you are inconsistent with your actions, how can you rely on your stats?

And don't worry, no offence taken, just surprised a fellow TST'er would have that kind of reaction to my comment having put Hoag in the subject, a little respect would have been shown as we're all here to help each other. If you have not requested a Scout Call, Hoag will say exactly what I mentioned. How you overcome it, is up to you as he does not give any advice as to how, only that you need to improve upon that.

So rather then spending your time thinking you are doing the right thing to correct it, its better to just get the right answer from someone who knows what they are talking about. Cause you can easily spend the next 20 weeks trying something new, or trying something else, only to be in the same position you are in right now.

Time is money remember.

Listen, if you ever need to chat, look me up in the CTD Office Hours as that is where I hang out during the day. I'm also in the Financials Pit if you cannot get access into CTD OH.

I just don't want others going down the path I took when there are solutions out there to speed up the learning and developing process. As today, that is all I did, journal my thoughts and assessment of the market and it was a Trading Goal of mine to do that today.

@BeansTwoNiner,

Stop mentioning CTD. I have a lot of respect for TopstepTrader and their program, but you sound like a complete shill. You are damaging their reputation by doing this hard sell on Every. Single. Post. about CTD. Enough already!!!!

You are a newbie and we understand, learning and feeling good is exciting, and you are welcome to share your experience here. But I swear every single post mentions CTD and I've had it!

Mike

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)

I'm excited because Bob has helped me develop to the point now and it turns out, you're right, I'm doing a hard sell and didn't even realize it. I just did not want people going down the path I went of wasting endless amounts of time and money on things I've tried in the past.

For that I truly am sorry.
