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.

09.12-10.12 did not trade. My brain could not pay adequate attention to market because of the Ukrainian revolution.
Tooday's trades i will post a bit later.
