What is the average duration of your losing trades? What is the average movement in ticks of CL for the same time period?

What evidence do you have that you can trade this instrument with a 10 tick stop?

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)

Why not do the opposite? If you are consistently wrong, you could become a great trader.
When you think buy, SELL.
When you think sell, BUY.

I tried this when I first started, the idea is correct but you will FUBAR the execution.

What I did was looked at the chart and worked to figure out why someone would be buying when I wanted to sell, and why they were selling when I wanted to buy.

I do this with every trade now, I look for the bull or bear case and then try to determine which one is stronger at that given time. This allows me to pick the direction I need to go in, and allows me to watch what is happening during the trade to see if the tide is turning. It helped me this morning in the M6E on my second trade. Once I entered the bull power began to erode, once I noticed this I exited the trade.

Thank you Mike for your qustions which force me to think a bit.

1. The average duration of my losing trades is 14 min

2. the average movement in ticks of CL for the same time period is about 20 ticks

3. My evidence is my statistic... soon

10 ticks stop

I am learning too. I think what Mike is trying to say is...it's quite difficult to trade CL using a 10ticks SL. You need to be damn good to pick an entry pt. Really learn a lot here. Check out Vince Virgil and MFBreakout. Excellent traders who are willing to share.

One of the best traders I know is trading CL with a 5 tick stop, and a 20 tick target, taking only the best setups. But of course, that takes lot of skill developed over a period of many years.
