I glad to participate in the community of the best traders. And having chance to look how the Market Wizards have grown into consistent profitable traders starting from Beginners i decided that a Journal really helps to develop as a proffesional trader.
For the time being it is a SIM account.

So i am in.

Thank you all.

Here is my trading plan
I understand that trading different methods at the same time is a bit difficult, but i will see what suits me better.

Focus on CL:
1. CL 2 min bar chart - looking for low volume bars on pullback in a trend direction.
Setup 2 lots on breakout that bar in direction of tend. Stop - behind opposite side of range. The first target +10, second - runner.
2. CL 2 min bar chart - looking for divergency of cumulative delta.
3. CL footprint chart - looking for levels with huge bid/ask delta - take a setup on breakout the level.
4. CL 800 tick chart - The VinceVirgil method.

I will look on:
1. 6E using cumulative delta end volume.
2. GC trying to catch stop hunters breackout - The xelaar method.

On my chart - MP, GomCD, GomMOM, BetterVolume, Volume leader.

1. I switched on my computer and while i was watching webinar the first divergency on CL formed. I took second one.(2 lots +9;+10)
2. The divergency on 6E (2 lots +3)
3. The Break of overnight high + huge bid/ask delta on CL 92,84 - after correction i was looking for good exit without loss and was filed +5 and stoped +1. Then price rised to day goal and higher.

sum total - 295$

Early started and to the market open i was a bit tired

As for me - CL was range today
Two trades on CL:
1. Long 2 lots 97.41 Level break TP +10 and SL +2
2. Long 1 lot 97.60 Cum delta divergence it was time stopped at +6
One trade on 6E:
1. Long 1 lot 1.3672 did not following my plan. was stopped at -3
Then cum delta divergency formed and price went in my direction without me.
Poor discipline and hypertrademanagement.

sum total - 135$





Next week i will increase the lot amount to 3 lots for tades with good, strong signals and 2 lots for trades with poor signals.

Tooday's trades i will post a bit later.

A few winning trades and one losing.
And the same mistakes:
1. Early enties.
2. Early exits.
3. Allowing of huge drawdown.
4. Pour understanding of VSA principles.
5. Fear, greed, hurry.

I must to develop some rules and exercises to reduce these mistakes.




sum total - 1030$

Here is a video of taking break of huge delta in the right place.

2013-12-26_0742 - OlegSem's library - placing the trade

2013-12-26_0748 - OlegSem's library - taking the trade

2013-12-26_0759 - OlegSem's library - target

Because of NT determines the first exit es a closing of the first trade, in report all trades mixed. Look at the chart.



A bit noisy again. It looks like a web. Definitely if it were live, most trades weren't so risky.

The second trade is the low volume break setup too.
The second trade is the high volume break setup too (yellow arrow).



The second trade is the 2nd entry setup too.

So, as for me, usually good setups are determined by different methods.

I was afraid to place an order in T4 DOM so made a couple trades on my SIM first.

1-st and 2-nd are SIM trades to warm up

3-d trade is Cum Delta Divergency

Due to Triangle formed i was looking for Short signal and passed good CD Diver Long signal (green lines).

Then market drew fence so i passed.

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?

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.

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

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

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.

I finished with my combine today.

Reason is - i was totally undisciplined

Here they are -

in the frame - combine losers
and then - sim




We can practice our trading skeals on SIM, but we can not practice discipline on SIM.

How can i do it?

Took a break to think about all these.

That day i was absolutly fearlessness thanks to i started to practice special psychology exercises BUT my greed was on surface and screamed GO..., BUY, SELL...
And i have not got strongly determined trading ruls.
So i am going to spend some time to develop trading plan.
And i have discovered that probably for me the implantation of personal RESPONSIBILITY in plan could have positive influence on my trading.

Did not trade because of crisis in Ukraine.

But i decided to do what i must do being disciplined.
I will hold my hand on pulse of situation development.

Sum total - 1 222.50$









Discipline is the mother of victory.

There is good MAE and MFE

But benchmark was huge - i should have hold my position a bit longer and place targets a bit farther.

I used to have some psychology problems.
So i took a pause after new loses.





Now i Work with my trading psychology.
Found wery useful Steenbarger's books and R. Howell Mindfull Trading

It is wery important for me to be more calm and confident while trading.
I am going to make daily recaps and detail journal _+ psychology journal.

As we had so huge run yesterday and begining of the new month i will be wery carefull today.

The weekly profile shows us that CL droped to prev week's VAL and start to build new value below prev. week's POC.



If CL opens inside the y. value - i am looking to go long
If CL opens below the y. value - and shows weaknes - i am looking for short



Low volume area as ressistance -

Nice job journaling @semoa.

I want to let you and all your readers know that in October futures.io (formerly BMT) has a Trading Journal contest w/prizes. The contest runs October 1 to October 31, and the three best journals (as decided by futures.io (formerly BMT) members) will receive a 150K combine from TopstepTrader.

The contest thread is here:



That thread will be open for posting starting Wednesday, October 1. As the author of your journal, you need to make a post in that thread linking to your journal, and then ask users to press the "Thanks" button on that post if they want to vote for your journal to win the contest.

Members can vote for as many different journals as they want. Votes are cast in the Contest thread only, and only on the first post made by the author of the journal that contains a link to their journal. This is done so I can easily count the "Thanks Received" by author/journal, and award the three prizes.

Mike

As we opened - we started to climbe up.
On pullback placed market order,
target on yLow,
Stop below the low

And went for a walk with my children.
