@Pedro40 again apologies for my reply

@matevisky I know it's xmas...finally This is the season I like most and I'm just thinking to shut down the machines until 28th and take some vacation as this year I took none
Good work today, I agree with @Scalpingtrader your losses may be compatibles with your P/L and strategy but are not compatibles with your account, you know we talked a lot about it and tst policies but I can understand that it could be worst to change your strategy and instrument.
Keep up the good work and you will soon find yourself in a more comfortable spot

Apologies in advance

OK, I wrote a long one, but I have deleted it because I see you apologized again. I am really pulling for Mergodon, but he had this tendency of taking big losses when days of gains were given back, and finally that tendency caught up with him. It was predictable...

Thank you Pedro. There is a lot of value in your words need some time to understand it better and deeper
How do i see is the follwoing:
In the last year I had a tendency to burn up 15+ combine
In the last 3 month I have been managed to stay in positive profit and did not do any margin call
In the last 10!days I have started to trade Russell again and going also well.
And every red day gave me a push to learn and analyse more and more. So I hope these tendencies will help me to stay in green.

I do know on the other side what you are trying to refer . But only time could change these so you can put words down which are pretty clear and easy to see but in really hard to find the value here

All guys, who would like to learn the feeling of trading, but doesnt have the money, or time to spent on hard learning, but want to try it, here is a great new thread:


@GFIs1 doing a consistenc DAX trading in the last 3 years, so I would say he is "somewhere" on the road. He has been created a new thread which need more rule following than his old one. I truly believe it is a good start for everyone, at least to getting the feeling how it is entering a trade, exiting, following basic rules and basic money monegment. It could be followed and tested in real time with any sim platform, and it will give you a great experience in this word!

So thank you for this to him. And it is free

Thanks Máté
Nice introduction @matevisky into a very difficult area: to trade during high volatility in the markets.
This is a special program to fill the days when normal trading is out of reach.
A hint for this high risk trading: Play it on smaller instruments with less risk..

GFIs1
PS: trading is a lot of trial and error... if you are not sure - go SIM

Máté - I have been enjoying your journal and studying your trading results. Thank you for taking time to keep the journal going. I think overall your method is pretty tight. It looks like the one issue for you is those times when the method gives several signals in a row which do not go in your favor resulting in a losing streak. This shows up pretty clearly on your P/L graph. So most of the time, day in and day out the method works reasonably well, but is prone to occasional losing streaks.

My suggestion is you consider the use of a daily $ loss maximum which you impose over the method. This is intended to cap-off and stop a losing streak at a predetermined level. If the maximum level is reached for the day, it is then up to you to turn off the computer and walk away for the day. This protects the integrity of your equity (P/L) curve and guards against the tendency (trading mistake) to want to keep trading and get back to even.

It's great to have a very strong belief in the trading method and your ability to use it, but at the same time it is important to balance that with the reality every system and trader has weaknesses which must be accounted for in your risk management plan.

Be Patient and Trade Smart

Didn't you do "one and done" in the combine ? What made you change that ?

To succeed in trading you need to think like the minority ,so you won't end up like the majority
