10JAN2017/ TUESDAY/ One Tick CASH Scratch basically




LATE NOTE: Also finished labeling my charts late today so I was looking at old Value Area... Not to say that it isn't of Value pardon the pun, but just that I didn't have it on my main trading chart.

Tick charts ?

Thanks for continuing with your trading journal, I have not had the patience to start let alone maintain one. Maybe later this year.

I think your chosen 2 minute charts provide tons of possible entries, most likely scalps where you need to be really good, quick, and disciplined. I personally fail on at least 2/3 of these criteria.

Tick charts seem to settle things down for me, have been playing with different variations from 320 to 3600. Here is a 1024 tick chart from 01/18/17 for comparison. One day I may even trade the ones shown from the strategies....

24JAN2017/NTD Back from taking some personal time off

Okay.... Still not attacking the market the way I should, no excuse.
Mind just was not there for trading today as is evident from my lack of journaling.

26JAN2017/ Thursday/ One 3Tick Trade

Finally getting some of my MOJO back... A small spec, but I'll take it.


One thing I realize from people looking at my journal is that it would appear that the chart I post daily is my only trade chart. What I am posting is my STC Short term Trade Chart. My LTC is a 6 min chart. I run with seven screens. That really means nothing as I still have long way to go before getting my trades down. I am going to post my main screen that I spend most of my trading time on. To the left of that screen is a watch list for ES metrics/ 4 different ES Filtered Time and Sales/ and Level II


Just realized I didn't explain charts on right of my main trading screen: Top right is three period ES chart 6min/Hour/Day There is a MACD indicator that I'm still working to incorporate into trading. Basically when market is trending it works well. Chop days like today it is almost better to go opposite of what it is saying. Lower right is Control Center that I keep open to my Journal 99% of the day, below that is a 7500 TICK chart that I should be looking at more often also. Hope that helps...
