Ah got it this is about the screenshot 3 days close mean it is a continues combine so if you blow the daily limit than you have to reset is because it is wrong either way. Thus it could be that but it could be normal combine also. I would say I hit my daily limit and blow my account 70% of the trials
@matevisky this post rang so deeply in the insides of me! Once you become a successful trader alongwith it comes such loneliness! You are unable to explain anything, say anything - sometimes you wonder if you are going mad!
I did a huge misstrade today. It was totally my fault, I will post the pictures later. Now I do not want to login (-600USD ouch). Here are the errors:
- I checked the news, prepaired for long because of the GDP number. NOT GOOD!
- I was trying long again and again and again.
- Finally I went short, than it was oke
- I was checking other pairs, which make my absolutly sure that we are going to south all day. We did not
- I was sticking with a short, when the market was getting back his power
- And sticking with it
- And sticking with it....
So bad day. My feelings are oke. I do not feel any shame or something like this, I was playing bad the easy one. which is always bad, I was browsing around old charts, and checking it again and again is there any mistake in my head, but I have found none.
So staying with a plan tomorrow. My entries were oke, I had made 2-3 small mistake, 1 is stop moving (obviusly it is a big one but not huge one) and I was pushing it, when there was no reason for a turn (only the pictures of other pairs)
So this is for today, see you tomorrow Not my best day, but as I told I do not feel any bad instead of I was playing my card other wise
(there is no indicator in a world, or system which can prevent you loosing if you are wrong side of the market )
Hm. I made a quick rain check. I have done a market replay on the VPS server. 5 days. 1 week. I have not checked any news or anything (major things always at 9:00) So no expectaiton about the market at all. I was trading the first 90 mins, just in case. I have made a lots of money. Sometimes it was choppy sometimes it was not. Ofc I speeded up, but where I was keen is the entry and stop management.
Every day was a winner, and not everyday was easy. So I am oke, ready for tomorrow, no stress at all. It makes me more confident about, if I missread a market, just skip it, and not push it. (or if push it, choose a fucking side for god sake, and do not try to spot the turn. )
It was starting with a perfect day. I was doing my usual short, with a good manner. Than something happened. I changed side. Do not know why, than go flat, because I was feeling something wrong. Than the market dropped, I was going long, and hit my +300USD limit, with some help from the news. My profit target was not there. It was far far away. Do not know why again, the market was act like a stranger, and I was not confident. Maybe I was planing to go with big hit moves, or who knows what, but my profit demolished in notime.
Than after some clarity, and seeing the other markets strength, I decieded to go long. My stop was far enough with a good place and everything was looking good. I blinked for a second, and 1 stopped out with 1 tick. It happens, the market nailed down the daily low, with 4 tick. My limit for these kind of moves is 3 tick. There is no good or bad solution here, only to jump back right on the train when it happened, but I was not there.
So I decieded to stop the trade, run away gotten bitten 2nd time, and look into myself. Today I was doing everything good, I had some mental breakdown in the begining, and during the take profit level (you have to know what to expect), but it was a good one. And I got bitten.
Than I read Horst email, he told me never forget that what I have learnt, I can trade, so trade. So I did trade. I have entered a pullback, bit soon, but it was a pullback, and I won back the loss. So it is a small winning day, but a winner, not a looser And I proved myself, that I can do it, if I want to do it!
So thank you Horst, this post is dedicated to you, because you are still keep your eye on my, and slap me when I starting to thinking about stupid things!

Nothing too much to add. I did not want to bored anyone with statistic and other stuff right now. I am concentrating trading and consistency. As soon as my first withdraw will be hit (need a positive week) I will send the graphs and details. Till that same mantra:
- run everyday
- medidate everyday
- be consistence every day.
Make your day, make your profit, and concentrate the next day. Simple it is...
Quick update: I made -800usd during a transition to the Russell. My bad my loss did all the mistake what I did before. The only mistake what I did not do is to kept my account green
So I have 3 shot if it will not work out than I have spoke with John already and I can go back to do free combine again.
I was mad now I am calm. I have got out from 3 bearifull short and entered many wrong long. The good side is that what I wrote . Because I have regain my control from fear to clarity I can stay in the game and topsteotrader will help me to overcome these period. Thank you for that see you tomorrow
