Hi All,
Not much of a day.
Summer stuck in the mud.
When it did move I wasn't here with it.
Actually even when I was I don't know if I was "with it."
Tomorrow is another day.
Journal attached.

Hi All,

Light day here.
Just took one trade ahead of FED, exited the trade shortly after when it started to look whippy in the market. Oh well better to exit with a few points then my usual loss.
Still in SIM and yet to get back to $$$ trading.

Hi All,
Another day another brick in the road.
Was on the sidelines for much of the day.
Expected a break that never came.
Put myself on the wrong end of one trade but was able to get out for a tick profit before stop filled.

Today was a bit of a day off....

l8tr.

Hi All,

CHOP CHOP CHOP morning that is for certain.
Proved that you really need to be away to trade...
Oldest daughter visited at 10:30 PM PST last night. I was dead to the world when the alarm went off this morning and slept for an additional needed 90mins. Problem is that as soon as I fired up my machine the itch to trade hit.
Oh well... OCO STOP FILLed... Currently in a bit of a better thought out order with OCO bracket again.
Banking on the CHOP to continue this morning.
Question is will I get CHOPPED up in the process...

Will post my trade journal later.

Hi All,

Packing up tent early today.
Ain't nothing but chop today.
Saw the trade, but didn't stick with it after entry.
Best wishes to all...

Hi All,

A little better today. I still have to get to the point where I am taking more consistent trades and get out of my own way as well.

Today was choppy day to say the least. Stops hit twice. Found a site to convert from WMV to MP4 and much more for free. Zamzar - convert document, eBook, image, audio and video - free online file conversion.

Well I have to get off this computer ... chat more later....

@Big Mike
Noticed: That you can hear my audio but not the video in futures.io (formerly BMT) video viewer. Guessing that I may have to scale down resolution as well to match futures.io (formerly BMT) video viewer. The video downloads and works fine when downloaded. Checked the three futures.io (formerly BMT) threads related to futures.io (formerly BMT) Videos but could not find the Pixel Restrictions if any mentioned. What size should I scale down to? Will try smaller tomorrow, and report back. Thanks

First Trade.
Trying FLV video to see if futures.io (formerly BMT) won't be black.
Maybe it is just me... Who knows.
Okay trade.... Risk to Reward going in was a bit to lean as 1:1 using high of day.
The shouldda would have been to just stick with trade till trend line break.
Oh well... Hit profit target so I will take it as a win and learning experience.



@Big Mike
NOTE: On bigmiketrading site MP4's show up BLACK video on my system. FLV's work fine.... will put videos in as FLV's from now on.
Using https://www.zamzar.com/ and works so far without a hitch

Hi All,

Tomorrow is Friday That will be nice.
Journal is attached.
Really only saw two trades today actually three.
One I was ready for, and the second/third trades I was not.

Well the market teaches me new things every day. I could hear it calling me saying move your target I dare you. Well I kept target and of course when my target was hit the market kept going. In time I'll get it so that I capture a bigger move on my trades, although with only 12point range on the day I'm happy to have been able to catch three points.

Used Zamzar - convert document, eBook, image, audio and video - free online file conversion three times today for file conversions so that is a good thing. Found out that the FLV files are the ones we should upload. MP4 files show BLACK on the futures.io (formerly BMT) Video viewer.

Speaking of which I should upload journal and video files now.
Uploaded also a cartoon that I carried in my wallet for more years than I remember. Started in High School ...

Hope everyone had a great day.

Hi All,

Just getting myself back into trading has been more of a challenge than I expected. Lost a lot of money trading ES in a less than smart fashion and now I'm looking at working smarter not harder.

Took last trade of the day for what reason is beyond me. It was like pulling out a fifty from my wallet and just lighting it on fire. Well live and learn.

Now I have to redo my main trading chart to see if we can fix a color problem that I am having when switching back and forth from Line on Close to Candle Stick and back.

Hope all have a great weekend.
