Hi All,

Still working to get off top dead center.
At least DRYS is starting to rebound a little.

Chat more later.

Hi All,
Another non-trading day here.
To darn many of those type of days for me.
Well weekend has arrived, journal is attached.
I have the journaling down, now time for the trading side...
All in time.
Today was nothing but a slow grind lower day. Was fighting the urge to counter trade all day.

Everyone have a great weekend

Hi All,
Little better day today.
Still not trading anywhere near where I need to be, plus still in SIM.
Took three trades. Protected capital in each of the trades.
Listening to an OFA presentation right now, will be interesting to see what others say.
Right now I have to many indicators and have to step out in front of more trades.
Have a great day everyone.

Hi All,
Another day in the books.
Well the definition of insanity "Doing the same thing day after day expecting different results."
Switched my main trading chart to the UniRenko bars from my standard two min chart today.
I was able to trade and make a few changes to overall chart which I think may help me in the long run. Still working on figuring out exactly how I am going to use the SMA's with UniRenko. I just may set up with alligator setup, but not sure. For now I'm just going to keep it the way it is.
Blue bars are Volume and the Yellow horizontal is at 30K.
That attached JPG are my notes, observations, the triangles were just to help keep things in perspective while watching the hard right edge. Printed out with and without after work to see if I think triangle analysis may help. Today it all felt right. I was using 6min chart for confirmation off STOCH primarily.

Well time to get to house chores now.

Chat more tomorrow.

Hi All,
Friday
Well time to take the training wheels off.
I'm not meeting my goals as yet, but am happy with where I am.
Just started with the UniRenko, and still working on getting confirmation for entries.
Another thing to work on for me is quicker identification of the day.

I've been doing Lumosity training all summer. Lumosity says it is best to do it in the morning. Well being on the west coast I am switching to after work now. Today went well. Of course I didn't do as well with Lumosity (which doesn't pay me a dime), but I did better trading. I think I stick with the new schedule.

Journal attached.

Talk to you all later.
FRIDAY....

Have a great weekend.

Hi All,
ARGE still SIM.
Just couldn't do cash today yet.
This whole government thing was affecting me more than the market today.
I need to learn from that.

Didn't mention in my written journal, but looking at the dash/dotted line splits the morning and afternoon
nicely to the point of almost a mirror image except real late in afternoon. This on the UniRenko, while my
two minute chart looked and showed the market going all over the place.


Have a great week all...

Hi All,
Two and out today.
Was looking for a reversal that wasn't when I was entering market.
Oh well...
Couple of more data points for reference.



Best to all...
