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.

Trading plan


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.
