Trades for Thursday 1/30/2014...

Another fast trade day.
Some days they just hit and need to take action on them.
1 aggressive trade on CL, but with 3LinBreak candle and steep RED 15, i took a shot
All within the conservative trade guidelines...

3 Trades... 3 Wins... $600Gross... $540 Net after commission

What was nice was 1 trade each on CL, NG, GC

TradeSetups for Thurday, 2/06/2014...

2 for 5 today!!!
Unfortunately my last NG trade, which I'm not showing, was a mistake and took
a 10tix hit of -$400

But it's all about surviving to trade another day and keep at it!!!

Mike S.

1st CL trade was a Pull Back [PB] to the 50MA for a long.
Will be looking more at these setups and building confidence in them for they are a hi
probability...

Thank you

Trade setups for Friday 2/7/2014...

What a difference a day makes!!!
3 trades.. 3 Winners!!!
My 2nd trade on NG had 1 tix slip so only went for 4tix
$500 Net for the day!!!

Took conservative trades and incorporated new Indicator Suite from Right Line.
Looking for 15MA slope to be > 1.371 for acceptable entries....

Again, work in progress on slope, but so far I like it!!!

Trade setups 2/10/2014...

6 trades... +$200 Net

Not sure how I lost on 1st / 2nd GC trades, but started down -12tix
Keep in mind my trades are not off Ninja Trader it's thru T4 DOM w/TopStep
I do like the T4 but still have a bad trade execution now and again. All on ME!!!!
Kept my composure and strung 4 winners in a row!!!

Both CL trades....

1st.. ABC just above 50MA... risk 10tix.. felt good about trade

2nd... 3LB [3LineBreak] above 50MA... risk 10tix. Again felt good about taking on added risk from 7tix

Net $360 after commission...

Thomas

T4 is part of TopStepTrading trading platform.
Even though I occasionally have entry issues on that, I actually like it
better than NT.
Mainly that once orders are placed, it's on the exchange if power or internet goes out!!!

But TopStep does now have NT avail to trade off..

Just a renewed preference I have.

Again my trading is basic.. All-in.. All-out....

Trade etups for 2/12/2014...


2 for 4 today
-$400 Net

Even though losing day.. can't win em all, was still happy with entries I took

If I was able to trade longer, most likely could have turned day around....
