-300USD and contract rollover


Because of the computer virus issue, I have not restarted my ninjatrader, and totally forgetten the contract rollover. So I was looking for entries on small timeframe (150 tick) and I was amazed the big volume. I made a lots of stupid gifts, than the market started to going sideways, and I stopped out.
So see you tomorrow

Friday

Another great journal has been closed @PandaWarrior both journal was great, it was very good to see how a good trader think and shape under the years. Anyhow, it is a great loss, to not have an opportunity to sneak peak into his head and life

A question for a weekend

So here is the question what is bother me. This week, I was almost done a perfect week. A perfect week means for me to follow the rules, try to do your best, accept what the market give you and stop trading if you reach your daily goal. The weak was almost perfect, and here is the thing why not:
- On WED I have recieved a computer virus. Nothing I can do with it, it happens. Not my fault. It turned out the error was in my Panda virus security program, so thank you guys!
- On THU the error is all mine! I did not followed my simpliest rule. Start to trade, and look the market as the most easiest way, and only change your sentiment if it is needed. If you are lucky, you do not have to trade much, because the most simpliest way will work.
- On THU the error number 2 was that, when I was realizing I am on the wrong side, I did not stop to give up my idea, I was continue to fade the market, and not only making errors with my view, but with my entries also
- On FRI I was a bit distracted, the only huge error was that I did not hold my last trade for a bit longer (for 8 tick) and I got out on the momentum not on smart exit.

So question!
- Am I the only one who see some progress in my trading, or is anyone else here who see some progress too?
- I do know that these kind of tilts, errors, etc are usual, and based on my entries, I do know that these are happen much less often, but still they are there. I would be happy to happens only 1-2 times monthly basis (I am speaking about huge error, not small ones...) but as I see they are coming every week... Obviusly speaking I am not able to decied, am I feeling right when I see progress, and I feel I need to be patient with myself, and not push the button. It will coming less often, just keep it up

So almost 18 months has been past before I started trading. I am feeling much more confident about that I do not now anything, but I do have good feelings, when my chances to win much more than to risk, are good. All the other things are does not matter but if you have some opinion, just hit me.

Have a great weekend!

Mate-
Keep it up.
Keep dialing in your system, self and risk.
I had some errors this week as well. But progress is made. I am working to eliminate those errors that I can control, such as missed signal and wrong account.

Safe and logical entries

I was checking my journal back, and found out, many times I am entring a wrong price, and my stop is not at the right place. I was thinking over this during the weekend, and found out my entry managment is awful. I know the price, I know the bias, but I am entering with limit orders, on the momentum. So what can I do? Because we are speaking about fast market, and I have 10 tick stop, thus I really doesnt have the time, to always manage the entry by the tick... So I have been started to develop a script, which helps me to enter with a logical price.

Ofc, there will be time when the market will go without me, but, and here is the but, many many time, I will have a good price, at a good location, and with some patient, it will come back for me to fill. Not always, but all the entries will be bulletproof. I have been attached a first screenshot, I am planing to put some sell/buy button, which is automatically but the limit order to the price.

The script is supersimple: It is using donchainChannel and some lagging information to spot the swings. Not always perfect, but it is far more better than I thought it would be!

So cool. The script is done, I will do the testing today. On Sim it is working like charm. It is putting a limit order to the short or long range based on buy or sell. The if we are out from the range, we just have to wait to get filled, or not, if we are in the range, it will automatically filled (because it is a limit order). The script is putting OCO order after the fill. It is not using ATM strategy. Maybe I will rewrite that part also, but right now it is not superimportant.

I was doing some backtest, and ofc I can miss out many trades, if it is not pulling back just shooting up, but on the other side, these are logical entries, so if the idea is good, I will less likely choped out. Ofc, the chart is about a nice trend, but also a good indication for see easy to pick trades, which could be working very fine.

All the stop size, the swing calculation etc, could be configurable, and it is not accurate all the time, but the idea behind is not to create a perfect thing, but a logical one. If the market is acting crazy, than there is no reason to trade it anyway, so why you trade?

So the idea again, when you are hitting the entry button, it will not enter the trade, if it is over the long/short (black white triangles) lines, only putting a limit order, so you have to w8 to get filled, or not
