My Trading with The Intentional Trader

I began following Tony Peterson of The Intentional Trader in May 2014. I began by SIM trading their methodology using the indicators that I purchased from them. I started trading live with real money in September 2014 and will begin posting my trades and screen shots in this forum in October 2014 after I have gotten used to trading with real money using this method.

The purpose of this thread is to keep an electronic journal of the trades that I took. There will be screenshots and results posted with an explanation of each trade. My results may not reflect the results of a better trader using this method of trading. I will only show you my personal results. You will get the good, the bad, and the ugly. I do not work for The Intentional Trader but I am a customer.

My hope is to improve my trading and execution of this method. I do attend the live trading room and will try to be as pure to the setups taught by Tony Peterson as possible. I am human and will make mistakes but will do my best to execute the trades as they should be traded.

Please ask me questions or leave comments. I also post daily to another thread called "Trading Journal - Reversal Bars" in this same forum. I will continue to trade the reversal bars and post those trades on that thread also.

Since you are journaling about a vendor, I want to let everyone know this thread is not appropriate to discuss the vendor's performance, pricing, product, services, etc in this thread.

There is an existing vendor thread for that:

https://futures.io/vendors-product-reviews/13151-intentional-trader-tony-peterson-www-theintentionaltrader-com.html

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Mike,

I will not discuss the performance, pricing, product, services, etc. This thread will only show my trades and may differ from those traded by others. I respect this site and the members. If there is ever any concern, please let me know. Thanks.

Looking forward to your journal and how you're doing using Tony's method.

Just in case you're interested, Tony just partnered up with SharkIndicators, so there should be some BloodHound templates available if you'd like to automate your trading with IT.

I am very interested to see any methods and their automation

I have experience with automating methods, and i can already share with you
that it is not easy to capture all human discretionary decisions in rules

@NJAMC in his webinar made a spot-on comparison

my computer has +/- 3,2 X 10^10 instructions / second

a human being has +/- 1 X 10 ^15 instructions / second
with 1 X 10 ^12 neurons, each neuron 10 ^3 operations / second
a human being is equivalent to 6.500 computers with 12 cores at +3Ghz

a human is looking at 100.000.000 neurons X 2 eyes, 200 Mpix, human looking at 200.000.000 points
a computer is looking at 1000 points of data

i have hands-on experience on trying to compete with @masood on that ATM
but would be interested to learn/share with others

maybe some methods are better than others, to be automated

work in progress...

I have the SharkIndicators loaded as well. They will show up on my screenshots. I have not used them to automate the trades. I still like to be able to control the entries and exits. But I am impressed with the SharkIndicators so far.
