OK, here's what I deleted

This trade pretty much tells the story of my entries.
I am not satisfied with my exits and would like to collaborate.

Even BOTS can over trade


I have learned a lot by watching my BOTS trade. I had a logic error allowing MM3 to over trade. There were multiple buy/sell transactions in the same bar. I had corrected that but somehow, in switching back and for between my desktop running the BOTs and my laptop, programming and testing, I reintroduced the original.

(Note: This was not an optimization but a eliminating multiple transaction within a single current bar).

Week ending 5 Sep (A bad week) and week ending 11 Sep

Last week I lost 1620 on ten loosing trades in a row on my bot in sim. The biggest losers were in the short trades which have not been as good as in the Sim real time as in the back testing. The long trades have behaved better than the back testing so I have stayed with the testing. Glad I have not gone live. I need to watch this more closely in the future.

This week was better, but the short trades have a very low percentage of winners. I need to investigate what is happening.

One mistake I did make that is really inexcusable: When I rolled the new contract (6E 12-15) I set the strategy in the wrong account. My live account. I did make 62.50 but inexcusable.....

Your images didn't come through, please post again.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
