shorts

CL and TF. Direction for TF is very clear not sure about CL. It's been stuck around 101.30 for an hour but i am not trying long without evidence of buyers.

As usual took some off from TF short prematurely. Constant improvement is needed in this area.

GS


Maybe GS has something to do with some of the pullback. Even without this call market internals for the day are right

in front of us Goldamn or No Goldman.

NG

Out of TF short 1129, CL in a la la land but NG gave a set up. Nothing in GC, HG, ZS.

TF 1143 ( Globex high) to 1127, 14 handles move fits within ATR and thats why covered short but no longs, yet.

NG, CL

NG keeps on giving but CL took it all away. Luckily, TF gains for the day remian intact.


Set up and position size need to match. It's not easy. I am not advocating anyone to use my risk management style. My profile is different from you. I try to take intra day draw downs or end of the day loss as a tool for improvement etc. It's different from changing the method. There is no change in the method. Just execution fine tuning.

ignore list

Luis Orinco ( with a distinction of couple of posts at futures.io (formerly BMT) over 6 months period) who puts his heart and soul into his craft ( per his post in my journal) but keeps his SECRETS close to his chest posted in my journal last week.

I honestly could not tell what he is talking about. I sent him a private message asking for clarification. He decided
to answer in a manner which gave me a set up.

Per this set up i could only do ONE trade. Short him and thus he is on ignore list.

Over a period of 4 years with 1,000 of posts , i had to put 2 people on my ignore list. Luis Orinco is the 3rd one.
That's a distinction on itself in my book.

GM Panda Warrior,

" Problem identification is one part of the equation. Does the author suggest alternate behavior patterns one can take to mitigate these issues?"

I am not aware if author has addressed this issue. This is due to the fact that i have not serached author other writings.

Best source i have found to get answer to your question and many other questions raised in JupaFx article is in a
book by Charles Duhigg " The Power of Habit".

My conclusion after reading "The Power of Habit", many other similar books and extensive reading of everything by
Dr. Brett Steenbarger is that certian people should never be engaged in certain activities. But as happens in life same people end up engaged in activities they should not be part of.

Problems in activities like trading, gambling etc. can only be REALLY addressed if

1) Trader comes to his/her senses on his own ( luck factor) and seek out professional help
2) Have someone in his/her life ( family member, friend, mentor etc..) who really cares for the person ( luck factor again)
3) Impilicitly trust the loved ones and the therapist.

I try to look at following chart as often as possible and is always in the back of my mind.

NOTE: I do not use orderflow trading- the service mentioned in JupaFx artice. I have no experience with them and i am neutral to orderflow trading service at best.
