I don't know if anyone else has this happen but I lose Level I from NT7 on chart trader after connecting to Interactive Brokers after Kinetick.

Fiddling around I discovered the fix to this problem is simply to reload the history and Level I comes back.
It may not come back on all charts so you may have to do this more than once if you have more than one chart trader display open.

Oh and I almost forgot.... MP4 is a tad boring as just me about all the trades I did not enter and BS reasons for not entering. Just head was not in the game today.

I let the voices in my head take over again today. Wish there was a way to play back my trading video while making it so that I could replay my own views on the market. Well overall I would judge today as a scratch, however I did break one cardinal rule, and will not get ice cream tonight because of it. I moved my target in to close my trade. BAD HABIT I MUST BREAK.

Joined @BoltTrader having internet troubles this morning. One minute I had it the next I did not. Talking with the COX computer was a pain in the tail end. While I was waiting for the switch to a real person after not having connectivity fixed my problem magically went away. I think it was on COX side not mine. Oh well.

The thing that I did that I was happy about:
1. Did not rush into trading after handling all this garbage.
2. Made sure to finish my entire pretrade check sheet for the day prior to trading even though I was seeing trades immediately after getting connectivity.
3. I took my time with the troubleshooting and did not rush into disconnecting wires as COX suggested. (One thing about trading you learn to suspect everything.)

Well that is how I started my day. I have the itch to get out of here as could have done so much better if my head was screwed on tight today. I realized as I went through the day that the COX issue had taken me off my game.

NOPE I TOOK ME OFF MY GAME, as I am responsible for trading not COX.

Will have my end of day post in a bit ....

Yep... Just did not have my head in the game and it showed everywhere. Guess I need to have my head low before and after birthday. Have the after birthday covered, but not before. Taking the day off today would have been a good thing to do.

Not even going to go in the SHOULDDA Camp.
Key rule violations: Added to loser/ traded more than one contract/ moved stop away from price after initially setting stop. There were others too, but those were the biggies.

Long tiring day here. Not that I got much done, just that when it is hot it is hard to think strait.
Turning off chat rooms actually helped.

Still a work in progress, until my grave, and lots of work left to do.
Have a great day all.

Hi All.... I have decided that I need to take more time off this year. Too much of my time has been spent at the keyboard.

Nice log.
I find your end of day questions to self useful.
And this rather amusing as I have this issue "what will I do better tomorrow?"
Get more sleep, sleep earlier.

Cheers have a good weekend.

Had a friend invite me to dinner in Costa Mesa at 3pm yesterday so of course I packed up early and left. Finding that I really need to take more time off. Here is my journal and video from yesterday.

I actually have been getting his emails for a few years. I think he has some great ideas and good videos. I at times listen to them when driving.

Do you use a trading method learned by Norman Hallet?

I recall in 2012 or so being called by someone soliciting a trading mentorship by him.
For trading discipline I prefer JakeBernsteins cd...Tradingmind. A guided meditation disc. It covers the primary problems faced by traders. "I am a disciplined trader. I like that about myself. I take my exits as defined by my trading plans..."


In my first post I was actually refering to how I have lack of sleep in common with you.

I don't use Norman Hallet's trading methods. I use some of what I have learned from Dr. Barry Burns of Top Dog Trading and others. Then I go from the gut on days like today and everything goes out the window. At this time with all the family issues I am dealing with I should not be trading, but life goes on.

Oh I remember getting solicited too, by Disciplined Trader. All this stuff is good provided we follow it.

Thank you for clarifying everything that I may have misread earlier.

Took the day off to smell the roses. I should be doing taxes instead. Really need to get a tax guy so that I can more concentrate on trading properly without having to worry about the taxman as well.

Going to a four day work week for a while to see how well it works for me.

Not much to Journal Today.... Still in TAXMAN MODE

Even the chart was in slow motion today:


How many of you remember BP Oil Spill?... I remember watching the WebCam for hours in fascination of the disaster unfolding.

Basically a NTD, but took two SIM trades, not really heart into things as rut, and getting car worked on.

Well I stepped out for a bit...
Just missed a Killer short that I had been thinking of taking didn't have the guts at the time to pull the trigger as I had just restarted my platform... Hmmm Now it is looking like a LONG is about to appear... CHOP CHOP CHOP day....
This is part ONE... Attaching current Video.

Chat more later... A Mid Day post... Something new for me.

No VIDEO today.... Just not enough time... I was only at the desk for the last two hours. Had tests done on my heart today. Joys of admitting that I get dizzy from time to time. Not the thing to tell your doctor. Oh well... Good to know my ticker works. Did the Echo Cardio and Stress treadmill heart rate tests today... Next week I do the HOLTER test where I get wired up for 24 hours.... Joy of Joys... Will be worth it either way... ;-)

Another day done....
SDGE helped keep me out of the market. Pointed out an area where I need to put some effort to stabilize my system.



Classic day... Identified downtrend... Had trouble catching reversal... Actually trouble catching anything.

Took time to smell the roses today. Actually should have gotten back to my analysis for the day sooner than now, but oh well like I said I took the day off.

Man what a roller coaster rided for anyone that was here for the entire day though. Hope you all caught the ride and were on the right side of the market.

My overnight chart will be the chart that I post today as this is the one that I use for my value areas for tomorrow.

VAH 2063.75 POC 2061.25 and VAL 2054.00




Later all...
Brother in law died today, so just feeling really mortal right now.
Death seems to be something that we all have to deal with in life.
Guess the only time you don't have to deal with it is after it is your own.

Today would have been a real good day to trade.


Drop Morning rise off the bottom that is for certain.
