The @TopstepTrader process is going on the way, I am in a very good hand : Erika is giving me a great support to have everything ready, so not too much to say about it.

You would listen the interview with them yesterday on the Squawk radio, but they didnt posted the recording yet : https://www.youtube.com/user/TsTSquawkRadio/videos , if they will, I made some comment about it, to have a clear and better understanding

My VPS server is up and running at @sam028 . I had to upgrade it to Large server, because of the many-many chart what I am do using. In case of robots and automated systems medium is more than enough, but over 20 chart window, and big screens, the medium one was weak. Every test was successfull after this. I have ninjaroutin which goes autmatically flat at end of the day, have some very wide range trailing stop ATM in case of disconnection for bigger runs. So seems to be great

But today I was not in the mood to trade either. The main focus was to get ready to going live, which is there, but I had this feeling I have to do something. So I grabbed @Fat Tails MacdBBLines indicator and made some really easy logic changing, which is harmonizing my view on the market. Here is 2 screenshot how it looks like now. AMAZING




I have been implemented a very complex NO CHOP logic also as you can see on the second one Hehe:P 1 hours of coding, but makes me proud, to have it... Keeps me out of trouble:P I will do more coding on it, but only on the weekend.

See you later

@matevisky, just started following your journal. Very nice. Any chance you will share your enhancements to the MACDbblines indicator when you are done? It is a great little indicator. Thanks.

I will do it on the weekend but do not overthink. I have just put a filter into it meaning: it is generating the signal only after a significant up or down MACDBB move. So no holy grail here. You still have to good understanding which level you should take the trade when do not take it into news time etc.
but it is looks nice so I will do the uploading

Oke, I am ready with the first version. I will not upload this to the download section, because it is really nothing just a simple simplification to my taste of trading. If somebody will like it could download it, there is no big logic behind it only after some bar the indicator validating the current trend, or pricemove so could trigger counter move, or could highlight trend signals should be in the main focus.

Here is a quick screenshot, but you will see more in my journal. As you know me, I like to trade few level, good timestamp, and nice picture. The indicator is not main and automatic entry!
Edit: The indicator is calculating on real time, not on bar close, because of other reasons. It should work like this perfectly!


Please be advice, the original indicator is this from @Fat Tails
There is a lots of good feature in that one what I have been deleted from this one, like bar painting, crossover and other sound alerts etc...

Weekend is great, I am looking forward what is coming next. Here is some challanges:
- Winter is coming, need willpower to maintain my daily runing plan (5KM/trading day)
- I am learning more and more about ninja programing. It is a good pratice to have it, I would like to keep maintain it. My new indicator which is ploting the level, in a much better way is coming. Lots of learning from @Fat Tails indicator base, so anyone who is interesting to starting to do it, do not pay to anyone, just use these indicators as a reference. Thank you for sharing!
- Need to get back the usual routine to listen more audiobooks about trading. I have been skiped this part lately, have to get it back
- I also would like to keep maintain this journal, it is a great reference, to see clarity not only for me but for others as well.
- And ofc I would like to achive senior trader status in this year

So more is coming stay tuned. The only thing what I am thinking of is to create vlogs as well, but still I dont feel get prepaired for that. Maybe if I will have the senior trader status I will reconsider. Speaking frankly I really dont know is anyone would be interested it about. I have checked a lots of other journal and there are many great stuff out there. My view is on the market is much more simplier, and to learn the details I am really not to guy to teach it. I can only highlight where would I consider to take trades, and when... hm... We will see... And ofc my english is an issue as well... ah never mind, I am not there yet to be a vlogger I guess

Here are some reasons why people are interested in your journal.

You dont try and impress anyone to satisfy your ego.

You are open and honest about things you do right and things you do that may not be right.

You follow a simple and clear logic.

Your charts are simple and clear also, with only the information needed for your decisions.

Your willingness to share your ideas, which does require alot of extra work.


These are some of the reasons I find your journal appealing. Great work and I wish you much success at Topstep.

sincerely,
Shane

Thank you for the kind word, but speaking frankly the most easiest way to being positiv and honest if you are on the right track! And as always biggest challange is to know that how to get it back, hopes it helps a lot of folks to see this. As my mother used to say when I was a little kid, dont make big trouble from small one
And thank you guys all the support silent reads etc... It keeps me happy to share, and help. As I told it before the main reson for me to start trading to be a better person and know my self better, so the best help for me to do it better, to make my life better (and not vica-versa). And one of the way to make your life better is to share thoughts other who believes that it is a value for them. So thank you again!

@shanemcdonald28 got me thinking, so I made a quick list. Thing to share with you over trading, and daily stuff related to trading. Not necesserly with this order, and ofc there will be more to add, but here is a quick one to sneak peak:
about gambling
about time to develop - measiring the time for avrage win
about runing
about family and wife
about spiderman and heroes
about podcast to listen
about audible to listen
about my old work

And an offtopic one. I am making the indicator about my levels. It would be very easy but it is not. Not because of the calculation, but because of the bug of Ninjatrader. Based on the help from @Fat Tails there is a Ninja bug to shot the lines, rectangels etc, thus all the drawing section is better to be rewrite. Oke I am not able to do that, but luckely there is a lots of exampel from Harry's work what I can use it for free and reshare it. So here is a sneak peak where I am right now. It is nothing, but the logic is written in lowlevel coding with a Plot function override, and not based on Ninja's function (DrawLine, DrawRectangle etc...)

Hopefully it will be ready in this week!
