Quick update from the past

Here is some highlights what happened in the past few months:
- I was stoped trading because I was not able to keep my consistency alive
- I tried to go back to work, but I was not ready to do it
- So I started to play poker in a professional level, just to see am I stupid or not (you can check my stat on sharkscope nick name guess what: mergodon )
- It was clarified I am not stupid, but professional poker is timeconsuming, and really not for me
- I am keep doing it because it is good for many many thing, specially to see you can be right, and you will lose, you can be very right, and you will lose, and only longterm you can be a winner, short term it is only based on luck
- So I was keep searching for a new job, but this time I believe I mean it
- Than just for fun I decieded to come back trading. I started a continues combine, I was reckless a bit, with NQ, starting bad, but I am doing oke now

Trading right now is not my first focus, only kind of hobby which I still really like to do.
I was clarified my trading plan in my mind, and I am doing it day to day:
- Grab a few tick every opening (target: 30-40 ticks, but I am not worry if it is only 5-10 ticks)
- Lose not more than 50 ticks per a day
- Enter on nice and visible levels, and nice visible price action
- Enter with pending order from the bottom, and before confirmation but after at least some price action.

It is working, at least worked in a slow market, and fast market like yesterday.

I am still using the same old tools, like tick chart, macdbb, i am skipping all the fibonachi stuff, I am using visible and obvious levels. I am trying to not rushing, but sometimes I do.

I do not trade more than 30-60 mintues, because it is only a hobby, and not a job. It is better like this right now, and working much better

Really glad to know that you have found your groove and niche. Sometimes not doing too much of something gives much better results. When you give up trying too hard, sometimes it clicks.

All the best for all your endeavours!

Are you still trading?

Are you still trading?

I have some very basic questions:
1. Which Broker did you use?
2. Which data feed did you use?

Anyone can answer these question.

Thanks in advance.
