Hi there !

Im gonna keep it pretty basic and simple . I have no real clue as to what im doing - my plan is to not really have one and I dont wanna spend too much time thinking about what is working and what is not .

I will post my results and thoughts everyday .

Feel free to ask any questions .

Thanks

True story - I was doing really well, profitable for 6 months about 1 year after I started, and I had no clue as to what I was doing. Did all the wrong things, averaged in average out, but one thing kept me alive and that was I would fold on a loss of about 1 to 2k

then I got smart and of course unprofitable so sad but true

Today more risk taken , holding more with a read on some liquidity . Everything still kept rather vague .
Its not hard to see that when you fear losing your risk goes up . Im not gonna fight it .. have done before and not gonna do again , instead just accept it and make it a positive thing . When I start crying about emotional bs its game over . You have to love the rollercoaster






Still got a 2 contract gold sitting .. which is gonna be kept overnight

Why do you assume you will fail? Is it because you have no goals? What do you think would happen if you assumed you would win and not fail? And if that assumption of winning is based on a plan you had developed, thoroughly tested, and learned to trust and trust your ability to trade it?

Kudos to you for an unconventional approach. All of the best to you in your trading.

Looks good!

Do you have many concurrent trades running or lots of fast ones and only a few slow ones? I'm puzzled by the average time in market given the number of trades and it's only for one day, but as yet I know absolutely nothing about Ninja statistics so please excuse my ignorance on this (e.g. if the averaging is over a much longer period), I'm hoping to learn more for some strategy work next year.
