I don't consider this a very good day.
I had a hard read, multiple internal things I track were up. Oil news was coming out. Another difficult issue is many markets are at near all time highs, making trading around past levels hard.

imo I should have caught the +16 trade I had with 2 contracts, or atleast added in as there was visual confirmation buyers were about to come in.
still up on the week
net = +8

Had a bad day, multiple reasons, bad data(am cooresponding with my data and nt), bad connection, had to reboot several times. Missed some critical trades and some reasons to exit a profitable trade.

My theory going in was we dropped significantly and to look for a long from the open or 2006, my initial target was 2014, then my final target for the day was 2016.
In review I think mm like big players and a variety of other players came in and after the touch of 2012, they drove it down.
I was trying to long initially but got stopped. My stop was too tight. Took a -6 and a -3.
After they began driving it down to 2006 and the ib was broken my bias changed and I tried to short it. The ib break was a fake out, I should've recognized it and anticipated it, but I began having issues around 10 to 1130, net, data, etc.


Not a good day.
Should have stuck with my original premise.
open, target 2016.

I feel I left 8-12 ticks on my first messed up trade and about 14-20ticks on my last trade by not taking it to target letting myself get faked out by a combination of things including bad data.

Mondays and Fridays are not a good day for me in general, targets and quotas are mostly met, traders in Europe and NY often go home early making trading weird due to lack of volume and how algos and big players can push market. This works against me. I will be nimble tonight and tomorrow. I am also leery of my data reliability issue that I am working on.

I think we need to be careful with the story we tell ourselves.

You had a day like every business in the world has sometimes, some headaches, you had to put out some fires, incurred some expenses, a mistake here and there. All normal stuff. The pendulum will swing back, it always does, revenue will flow into your business, problems become clear and solved. We need the gloomy rainy days just like we need the clear sunny days.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

Also good to remember we have a date coming up to dance with Miss Yellen. Watch for the fed hawks to start popping out of the wood work to jaw bone the market down for the inevitable, no hike = blast off . set to coincide with OpEx.

They are just taking turns bending over the shorts and the longs right now trying to cause mass confusion.

Noted.
Router and nt crashing are day to day biz issues.

The problem out of the ordinary in my opinion was my t&s data did not match. I am talking LARGE size that came through. As I was trading. It showed on another trader I was trading with, in skype. Same nt7. same settings in filters. I have the screenshots. I have multiple t&s running as well. Some of it should've been picked up. If the axe is chopping I should know.

Good entry, bad exit.

traded cL since some people were wondering if and why I don't trade oil. Took some small losses early. Worked out ok. Got out with good timing.

I am going to slow my posts down, I don't see a real benefit for myself posting. Good luck all.
