First day back from vacation... Still having endurance issues with trading and all of the other gremlins that pop up during the trading day.

Well my title sums it up that is for certain. Just too damn distracted to trade. I see, just can not react at the moment. Would have liked to have swam the waters today, but for me the water was too hot or too cold, just can't make up my mind. Sick and tired of just being sick and tired, Yes I know it is a choice, doing my best to choose, but there are also external issues that weigh on my mind.

Sidenote... Wow already two years that I've been journaling. Getting a little calmer in my approach although you would not know it. Still royally pissed off about my pig headedness with my DRYS trade, and will serve as major learning lesson in the future when it finally closes out.

Okay well on with the show and enough of my rant:

Was away Monday and most of Tuesday. I don't usually trade unless been around since close to open. Maybe when I get better at trading with more confidence in myself and system I will. So today another sideliner day. Wow what a range though. Very interesting day to watch from 3pm EST on ;-)

I'm tired of having my platform freeze. 99.9% sure it is because of KINETICK dropping synch or feed. Either way it is ticking me off. My desires are simple I just want to log onto Interactive Brokers and trade. I need ES and the following feeds as well as Time and Sales. Any thoughts feel free to chime in or private message me. I am currently paying to get some of Interactive Broker feed and will be willing to pay to get more if it fills in the void that will be left when I drop KINETICK.



By the way for any techies out there... This is the error message I get... Right after losing the FARM I loose my data feed as well.

So hot yesterday I forgot to post.... I did do the work, just didn't post....
Today (Sept 11th) my gut is saying higher, however not having the signals from the market as yet. And of course just came while making this entry. UGG.

I SHOULDDA done it over the weekend. Don't know how I got roped into thinking to do WIN 10 this week, but I'm glad I did it overall. I now have one less thing to worry about for a while. Next step will be Buying a copy of WIN 10 and loading it on my XP machine. Wish me luck... That will definitely be a project for some time in the future though.

Also didn't do movie capture today as I never really got to the point of being ready to trade. Also after the third or fourth time shutting down programs and system I just did not what to start again.

There is still a lot to learn for me about trading. Time for a rest for today. Also have to see about getting my head screwed on straight. Today was a good day overall. My platform didn't dump once... KNOCK on WOOD. Windows 10 is running well. MS Internet Explorer is BAAAAAD.... MS Edge is not too bad I am finding that with Win 10 if I mess with going back and forth on my programs with entries too fast that it sometimes causes the program to lock up. Task manager shut down of program individually solves that problem. My TOS 64bit platform locked at the end of the day when I was going back and fort fast. Hard to describe....

"Every day above ground is a good day."

Hi,

thanx for sharing your process. I find your charts a bit overcrowded but seemingly you are using most of those lines and indicators... anyway to work on those visually rich screens you definitively need more sleep.

Cheers,
J.

Started the day feeling good. Ended not feeling so good. I have to get a system in place of which I will trade religiously. The market changes daily though so I too need to change. There are some universals which I shall follow.




Mark this page as a reminder.
STOP WHEN YOU ARE NOT DOING IT RIGHT.
I AVOIDED MAJOR MELT DOWN TODAY.

That part is good. I have to get over this fear of my first trade being a loser. Rarely have I traded back from an initial losing trade. Also I have my DRYS trade looming over my head. Talk about the MOTHER of trading mistakes. Just thinking about it makes me sick.

Futures.IO:

Wow new name and new web address. Hmmmm Wonder if this had anything to do with the recent poll with what do you trade primarily. I am sure that in time I will get used to the NEW NAME, however in some ways I wonder about Futures.IO. To me Futures.IO sounds a bit too much like every other trading website out there. With Big Mikes Trading Forum that name meant something to me.

That said Shakespeare said it best in Romeo and Juliet:
Origin

From Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, 1600:


JULIET:
'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What's Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.

Copied from : A rose by any other name would smell as sweet - meaning and origin.

Big Mike I wish you the best with the new name change. You are much smarter than I about these things and since it was a seamless transition, Bravo. I will have to give it a try with EDGE and see if I can reproduce the problem that has been reported in the new Futures.IO thread. I have a feeling we will find that the persons problem with Futures.IO will be Windows 10 specific as Windows 10 does not play nice with some of the video cards out there.

Okay enough of my rant. Will have to come back later and put in my trading journal from Friday. Another NTD for me on Friday. Sinus headache really does put a damper on desire to trade that is for certain.

Congrats on the name change.

Give me a month and I'll think of Futures.IO as second nature.

Morning fine.
Had a few issues.
Was trading SIM, but still upsetting when things don't work right. Now I see why you need to keep Broker Phone Number handy. As well as a spare computer.
Don't even want to get into it all as here is the short version.
I was up, not trading well, but making money never the less, I noticed a hiccup in my system when one of my SIM trades actually lost money when it was clear that it should have made money. Machine failure. This coupled with loss of data feed twice and one total system melt down was enough to make me have a melt down. Luckily I didn't try to do anything like trade live money as I knew I was agitated. (Understatement)

Oh yes no movie today as lost that too when system crashed.

Picture of my main trading screen at the end of the day... At least I have that working the way I want now.

Journal

Chart


Cleared out my SIM transactions for the year as I have them logged anyway. Cash well of course I still have that one. Also didn't post my trades as the calculations from NT7 were wrong, first time that's happened in a long time, I am fairly certain it had to something to do with dropped data feed, multitasking, or SunSpots... UGGG

Platform issues again today. Froze system. Decided to replace video cards hopefully will work better next time.
Still issues with router and NT7... NT7 issues are of my own starting as have done some "programming" if you could call it that. Like I have always said NT7 is like an erector set...

My GUT tells me the right thing 90% of the time, getting myself to trust myself and take action well now that is a totally different thing. Also the claim of 90% accuracy on the gut has to be wrong otherwise why not take action on it to verify. It is just PFM I guess. ;-) Well here is todays journal.
Thanks all.

@Tap In thanks for accepting my friend request.

Also if you have NT7 and use Interactive Brokers. JAVA Updates will often disable your API for Interactive Brokers by removing your "old" Java. Here is the fix...
•Close NinjaTrader and Traders Workstation
•Locatejavaw.exe located in the following directory: •C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_25\bin(Note your version may be different from jre1.8.0_25)

•You are going to COPY the javaw.exe file to the 'clipboard' (right-click Javaw.exe and select copy)
Now paste it into the following two directories: •C:\Windows\System32
•C:\Windows\SysWOW64

•Once this is complete launch NinjaTrader and try the connection to InterActive Brokers again.

(Note: This morning I don't think I actually closed NT7 before doing this.)

Today was my last straw with KINETICK... NT7 can claim it is the best all they want, but KINETICK has failed to resolve my API issues with Interactive Brokers. I give up and will be going over to Interactive Brokers now for my data starting next month. Hopefully I will be less distracted using Interactive Brokers data than having KINETICK freeze up after a momentary disconnect from other providers. JUST FED UP WITH IT ALL. I have learned not to get over emotional about it as it is a fact of life, but I'll let it be someone else's fact from now on.

Okay I'm realizing or realized just how much better Kinetick is today...
That said I am still getting rid of it.
I don't mind paying for the service.... WHat got under my skin is all the times that my data stopped all together. Plus it always seemed to happen at critical times in the market.
I'd rather have something slower that works. Yes also my data is now filtered or clumped so it is impossible to truly track large orders. Well will not have that distraction I guess.
Had to reboot my system so no video today.

IB data is terrible.

For the record, IQFeed (Kinetick for NT users) is the most reliable data feed I've ever used. So I believe the problems may be something other than their fault. That said, I certainly understand the frustration if NT support cannot resolve the problem.

Thanks Big Mike,

Not saying that my problems are Kinetick's fault, just that it has not worked for me with my machine configuration.

Wired Yes. Been looking to get new router, but because of WIFI issues. 10/100/1000 all the way from cable to computer. CAT 7 Cable.

I have had this problem with NT7 and Kinetick almost since I first started using it. Also have contacted Kinetick several times on this issue with no resolution. I agree that IB data probably sucks, stinks and is just plain old bad. I realize that I am in the INDY 500 here and have just gotten out of the race car (that being Kinetick) and jumped into the VW bug. Problem I have had is that after IB data hiccups as it generally does during the day it also takes Kinetick down. Kinetick fails to restart but IB data with all its flaws does restart.

As you and I well know we accept responsibility for our trades and actions in trading. For next month I'm going to see if I can trade with the IB DATA. The pitfalls of totally inaccurate, bunched or packeted, Time and Sales is already obvious. Through it all I'll keep plugging away.

Lots of I's here, please don't take it as resistance as suggestions are welcome.

It sounds like you are losing internet connectivity for a short while, and the NT handler isn't working properly to reconnect to Kinetick.

What exactly has NT done to troubleshoot the problem so far?

I've used Kinetic, Rythmic and CQG. I can say that almost every day, Kinetic would freeze on me. I tried it for a month and just couldn't get it to work. Then CQG which I really liked and now Rythmic for NT....which has worked well since I switched over several months ago.

I have a couple of friends on IB and they complain constantly about the feed for NT....however, one of them has IB feeding another platform as well with no issues....not sure which one but it appears the marriage of IB and NT is a rocky one at best.

Hmmm All these questions about internet, Kinetick, and IB...

I'll answer to the best of my ability.

1. Yes probably a hiccup along the way with the Internet. (One thing that I noticed that really helped was that I disconnected my WiFi water heater.)

2. Ninja Trader people have been helpful with Ninja Trader issues. With Kinetick I'm running into same problem that I had with TD Ameritrade when I was using that with NT7. Each one will blame the other with little or no resolution. It very well could be my Router is goofing up.

3. Okay so I have sent in my logs a few times and that was of some help. They showed me how my data was stopping and just what was happening.

4. I know that the problem actually starts with Interactive Broker connection, but then rolls over to Kinetick causing it to freeze for good until you disconnect and start over. (Weird thing and last straw for me was when I was starting to notice that I was getting a disconnect without even having an entry in my NT7 LOGS.)

5. Will take baby steps and explore new options. Suggestions welcome for.

Router to replace my D-Link 860 router. (5ghz has given out, rest still works fine to the best of my understanding)
I have a Motorola Docsis 3.0 modem that is still working well.

Right now taking a month rest from other than broker data feed at the moment now.

The platform should gracefully handle any disconnect. I have disconnects daily due to my location, Sierra Chart and IB never have an issue restarting automatically and downloading the missing seconds of data

After all it was just an in and right out trade as just didn't feel right. Felt like a trap, funny thing is my stop would not have been hit, but I may have jumped out of the trade had I stayed in it for the heat.

So lost the money but learned the lesson I guess. NO STOP LOSS = STUBBORN = DISASTER

Shouldda just not traded... However learned that really can't trade with the router that I put on the system for now. It will limp me through long trades, but will force me to put in STOPS with my order which actually will be a good thing. Tired...
Rebooted computer several times today fixing various networking problems.
Did I say I was tired... Yep...

Well here are my microjournals from today...

Sorry about your rough week. Been there done that. Keep your chin up and be careful about taking too many of what I call, "f--k it" sim trades. They usually don't turn out well and can further erode confidence in your judgement. That is what I am going through right now, a lack of confidence caused by over trading in sim. Better to step back and just observe the markets for a while until you regain some feel. Good luck

Thought I'd get more done the end of December, but looks like lots still to get taken care of.
@Tap In Thanks for the words of encouragement. I know what you mean. Confidence is 90% of it.
Plan your trade and trade your plan...
Well time for my post from today... Not much to post, but I was here.

Tough day...
1/25/2016 6:52 AM May just be time to get new computer.... Mine is erratic yet again today...
Time to reboot and see if that clears things up.

1/25/2016 8:13 AM A bit PISSED... 3x reboot system today... Computer acting up again
1/25/2016 8:13 AM For End of Day:
What I did I right?:. NTD/ COMPUTER AND PERSONAL ISSUES BLOCKING DECISION PROCESS
What could I have done better?:. Nothing other than maybe replacing computer equipment sooner.
What will I do better tomorrow?:. Replacing modem tonight/ installing Java and Fixing NT7 after install so it will run too./ Sleep/ Steps/ Prep./

Hmmmm a new way to do my Journal for when I'm in a rush.... I like it. Oh well time to get with Tuesday 26Jan as the market is about to open soon. I'm still having computer issues so what a day... What a week... More than just computer things going on here too... LIFE... AIN'T it GRAND... Beats a dirt nap that is for certain.

Date Note
1/29/2016 6:28 AM Starting the day. Market to open in Two mins. Getting used to constant state of FLUX in life and my equipment Software and Hardware.... TDA Think or Swim is becoming a Memory HOG... Causing my comptuer not to work
1/29/2016 6:29 AM Just had 15 Point GAP UP open... Don't expect it to last long.
1/29/2016 6:30 AM Holding steady. Still having issues with TDA on both computers. Now ES making a run UP.
1/29/2016 6:36 AM Second Volume bar was HIGH VOL.
1/29/2016 7:31 AM Did not follow my instincts as too many things in the mix had changed this morning. We just had a three point pull back that I could have ridden and was thinking of getitng into. Realistically it would have been two points as entry would have been STOP Entry. 1030 EST and time for reversal came like clockwork at 1000 EST.
1/29/2016 8:11 AM I can tell that I am totally off today.... Just not taking action not watching the market for what it is this morning. Missed both my pull-back and now BOUNCE. Just distracted by the whole day all together.
1/29/2016 8:40 AM Totally CHOP filled day.
1/29/2016 9:14 AM I just have too many other things running in my head at the moment to concentrate on the market....
1/29/2016 9:14 AM Shutting down early today... Just can't do this today.
